Stockhead’s Top 10 at 10, published at ~10.30am each trading day, highlights the best (and worst) performing ASX stocks in morning trade using live data.

It’s a short, sharp update to help frame the trading day by showing the biggest movers in percentage terms.

The market opens at 10am (eastern time) and the data is taken at 10:15am, once every ASX stock has started trading.

The Aussie bourse has opened higher on the second day of trading for 2023 after slumping more than 1% yesterday. The benchmark S&P/ASX 200 is up 0.29% in the opening minutes of trade.

On Wall Street, the S&P 500 closed 0.4 % weaker, the tech-focused Nasdaq index lost  0.8%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.3%.

Investors are cautious of what 2023 may bring, including how high central banks may raise interest rates to contain inflation, alongside how China’s reopening may impact the global economy.
