Good morning, and welcome to Stockhead’s Top 10 at shortly-before-11-ish, 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.

Most of the morning’s movers are doin’ their thang off the back of swingy commodities markets this morning, and actual market-moving news is a little thin on the ground.
