Basically the feed provides live coverage of ASX announcements as they are released, with a quick interface that instantly links you to the PDF files containing the details. It only shows related announcements in the last 200 released by the ASX, so they only show on the page for a few hours to a day (depending on the rate of new announcements released on the ASX). You will need to refresh the page at regular intervals if you are monitoring it for brand new announcements.
The page might come in handy for instance after a strong night for Gold where you are looking for positive announcements from metal companies to trade or where you might just be interested in keeping regular tabs on what companies in this sector are doing.
If you know of others who may be interested in the feed (investors/traders in precious metal equities on the ASX) then please pass the link on (email, tweet, share).
Some credits due:
WealthEsteem.org for providing the Twitter feed (all ASX announcements before it's filtered to precious metal stocks only). Thanks also to goosmurf for the yahoo pipe which is the basis for filtering the above Twitter feed.
Gold Nerds for their list of related stocks as a starting basis from which to filter (a very happy subscriber to their precious metal stock spreadsheet).
Thanks also to Rezin from Overclockers and jnkmbx/fishball from Silver Stackers for their assistance with the html and scripting to get this working efficiently and also to joshrichy (also of Silver Stackers) for an additional ASX ticker that wasn't on the Gold Nerds list.
