DESCRIPTIONThis module obtains information from the Australian Stock Exchange http://www.asx.com.au/. All Australian stocks and indicies are available. Indexes start with the letter 'X'. For example, the All Ordinaries is ``XAO''.
This module is loaded by default on a Finance::Quote object. It's also possible to load it explicity by placing ``ASX'' in the argument list to Finance::Quote->new().
This module provides both the ``asx'' and ``australia'' fetch methods. Please use the ``australia'' fetch method if you wish to have failover with other sources for Australian stocks (such as Yahoo). Using the ``asx'' method will guarantee that your information only comes from the Australian Stock Exchange.
Information returned by this module is governed by the Australian Stock Exchange's terms and conditions.
