Good morning, and welcome to Stockhead’s Top 10 at shortly-before-11-ish, which is meant to highlight the best (and sometimes worst) performing ASX stocks in morning trade using live data, to provide 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 – for better or worse – and then I do my best to make sense of who’s moving where and why it might be happening.

Local markets have opened lower, down close to 1.5% after a collapse on Wall Street overnight, caused by a narrow miss on CPI data that put the final nail in the coffin for accelerated rate cuts by the US Fed. Spooked by the news, the S&P 500 fell by -1.44%, the Dow Jones index was down by -1.39%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq slipped by -1.86%.

Here’s what’s been happening since the doors were opened this morning
