ASX Precious Metal Stocks - Live Ann Feed

A couple of days ago I added a new feature to the site that many precious metal stocks investors and traders might find handy (those looking for opportunities on the ASX). The feature is a live stream (note: live aspect is dependent on the Twitter feed that the stream is pulled from) of ASX announcements, specifically from companies that have precious metal related projects or interests. You can view the feed here (also linked via a permanent button on the column to the right):



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.

Depending on the popularity of the page I may consider looking at options to extend the features and usefulness of the feed, if you have any ideas then feel free to pop a comment below or drop me an email.

  1. In typical fashion (if it can go wrong it will) it would appear the mktbot Twitter account that feeds the announcements is not up and running this morning, so currently live announcements are not coming through. I will comment and Tweet when I see this come back online. Cheers, BB.

  2. The feed looks to be back online after the mktbot started streaming announcements late morning. The feed takes a little while to pickup the new tweets (coming through roughly an hour later), may need to look into refreshing this quicker if possible. For now it may only be useful for reviewing the market, rather than as a trading tool to scout for early opportunities...

  3. What would be great is to be able to filter only on stocks that are in the ASX 200, as those are the only stocks I can buy in my super funds. I do not have enough in there to do a self managed super account, and the ASX 200 shares option from AustralianSuper is the closest I can get to self managed :-)

    Unfortunately most of the shares in the ASX 200 are the ones that I do not want :-(

  4. ShortBus, I am in a similar position (investing in shares directly as opposed to SMSF), luckily my super fund allows ASX300. There are some quality precious metal stocks in both lists. SLR, TRY and IGR are 3 that I hold in my Super. Cheers, BB.
