This module obtains information from the Australian Stock Exchange 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.


The following labels may be returned by Finance::Quote::ASX: date, bid, ask, open, high, low, last, close, p_change, volume, and price.
