What’s hot, and what is not?

It’s a question ASX Small Ords investors ask themselves every working day.

For active small cap traders and market enthusiasts alike, it helps to know where the action is once the opening bell has been rung.

In view of that, here’s the Top 10 at 10; a short sharp summary of which stocks are in demand to start the day, and which stocks are being sold off.

Technically speaking, the data is effective from 10:15am (eastern time). The ASX opens at 10am and each company hits the boards in alphabetical order; a process which is typically completed in around 10 minutes.
