How does the StockLight indicator work?

The StockLight tachometer provides an instant summary of a company's financial health and prospects as a potential investment

How do I use the Market Filter?

The Market Filter give investors a picture of the 22 industries that make up the ASX market (based on global GICS codes) from best to worst. For example someone interested in the banking sector can see which companies pass the most green flags at the top of the list down to those that attracted the most red flags. The ratio thresholds are customised and unique for each market sector.
