These statistics are then used by the staff and developers of StockCharts.com.au to continue to build a better website for a better end user experience.
We also use adverting platforms such as Google Adwords, who use their own anonymous data collection techniques to serve our visitors with advertisements that are the most relevant to their interests and recent internet browsing history.
