The new ASX website has got off to a disastrous start — crashing, not showing company announcements, missing old features — and users aren’t happy.
The site has a sleeker look than the old one but has far less at-a-glance market data on its home page, with the standard ASX200 prices list seemingly axed.
A company spokesman recommended users set up their own personal watchlist instead.
As the trading session opened, the bourse tweeted: “ASX announcements are currently not displaying on the ASX website. All company announcements are available to view via brokers and news agencies.”
“Huge fail for the @ASX,” @eadatt tweeted while @SmallCapEagle labelled the new website “atrocious” and implored: “Kindly put the old one back.”
“The new website is a disaster! One can no longer easily see that there is a company announcement relevant to a particular security on their watchlist, there are no longer ‘sector comparisons’
