Answers to common questions

What is the price?

Free! We don’t charge for the basic version of Stock Brief. We also offer a pro plan that has some more features for a small monthly fee. Read more about our plans here.

How do you make money if it’s some of the plans are free?

We work on a freemium model, we hope that a small percentage of users upgrade to a paid plan to help us cover costs. Occasionally, we may put some sponsored messages on the emails, but it won't be obtrusive or impact the email content.

How often are the emails?

By default, the emails are sent every night after a trading day (e.g. for a standard trading week, you’ll receive an email 8.30 pm on Monday through Friday).

You can also optionally change to a weekly only summary email that has all announcements and price movement for the week. Pro users can have both emails (a daily and weekly).

Additionally, we occasionally send out an update email with some market news and product updates (not more than once a fortnight, usually less – as we are too busy to write them).

What is in the emails?

The emails show for each stock that you have selected:

The price data:

  • Close price
  • Change (as a percentage, up or down or neutral)
  • Volume of shares traded
  • Turnover (close price x volume of shares traded)

Market announcements:

  • Market announcement heading
  • If price sensitive
  • Link to read the PDF version of announcement.

Market indexes, commodities currencies:

  • Free users can toggle on and off the default markets
  • Pro users can customise from a selection of currencies, commodities and market indexes.

Price charts:

  • Pro users can enable price and volume charts to their emails with either one week, one month or six months of data.

You can also see a screenshot of an email from Stock Brief on our home page. Or just sign up to see!

What stock markets do you provide this service for?

Right now, just the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). We may consider more in the future (we do own the domain, so we should make use of it globally).

Additionally, there are a range of global indexes available, currencies and commodities for pro users. If you're a pro user and want us to try and grab a few international stocks for you, please contact us and we'll try and help.

How do I select my stocks?

You select them on sign up. Additionally, you can click log in to your account and edit. This is a 'magic' sign on link. Each email also has a "manage stocks" link.

I want to stop the emails / unsubscribe.

Damn. Sorry to see you go. There is an unsubscribe link in your email called "Stop tracking stocks". Please click this link to unsubscribe.

Can I follow you on social media?

Yes – we have a Twitter account: @StockBrief. We also have a Facebook page.

Can I get in touch with you?

Sure. We have a nice contact form.

What do you do with my private data?

We try to be totally honest with where your data goes and what we do with it. Read our privacy statement.
