ASX Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find the ASX Indices?
In the "Indices" folder, directly under the "ASX" folder.
The default installation path for the ASX history is -
The "Indices" folder is located directly under the ASX folder -
Why do some Index names have a "TR" at the end?
The "TR" stands for "Total Return". These are accumulation indices (they assume reinvestment of dividends).
Many of the indices don't have a daily range. Why is that?
They are only calculated by Standard & Poors on a close-only basis.
Why are there stocks in the "Equities" folder that haven't traded in more than a year?
We only remove stocks from the "Equities" folder after they have been delisted by the exchange. A stock that remains in the folder but hasn't traded in a very
long time is most probably under suspension. In that case, it may resume trading at any time (after a capital re-construction or as part of a "back-door listing").
Your historical data shows a high (or a low) for a stock that never occurred in actual trading. Why is the data wrong?
Our ASX data is adjusted for capital events as per the official "dilution factors" issued daily by the exchange.
These events are also factored into the calculation of the S&P/ASX indices.
Why can't I see code "xxx" in my "All Ordinaries" Custom Folder?
The most likely explanation is that the code you're looking for isn't a constituent of the All Ordinaries Index.
If you would like to have a Custom Folder that holds all fully paid ordinary shares, use the list called "ASX Fully Paid Ordinary".
