Not the product I was looking for
The staff could not have been more helpful, however, this is not the product I was wanting. I was walked through the process, but did not understand that the main focus was on international share markets, which were not on my agenda
I have been using Macrovue since April 2020 with very good results from my own research and choice of stocks. About six months ago I started getting advice from Logan Harrison Wong who showed me how to really work my portfolio, to be dispassionate about making decisions and to take profits when stocks are high. He gives me a heads up when things change quickly and I would be happy to recommend Logan to anyone wanting to balance and build their portfolio with Australian and international stocks.
Joel Hicks and his team have been brilliant, with professional advice and the macrovue system has been easy to navigate. Updates informative and information accessible. My advisors have been in regular contact.
Best platform i have used for overseas investing!
I joined a few months ago with Australian Stock Report and took advantage of their Macrovue platform. I have had nothing but great service. They were prompt with setting up my account and gave me great information about the market in the US. Since investing in January, I am already up 32% overall. Extremely satisfied.
Pushy and Rude
I received a call from one of them and the guy on the phone try to sell me a product, very pushy and insisted me to look at their HALO product. After I kept telling I'm not interested (I was being polite as well) and he just hung up on me. I was with them previously because I got mislead into it. Their product hardly deliver and expensive.
ASR, Halo and a great team, especially Logan
I have really enjoyed working closely with Logan and indirectly the rest of the ASR team these past 7 months. Working with Logan to invest my funds has been both fun and rewarding. He brings intellect and humility in equal doses and you know he taps into the collective knowledge of the whole team when putting forward recommendations. The results speak for themselves. Great to work with someone who truly cares.
Logan Harrison Wong has been my advisor for just over 6 months and the goals we set, have not only been attained, they have been exceeded. I am therefore very happy to write this review and give Logan 5 Stars.
I look forward to his buy recommendations, and most have seen significant gains.
Logan clearly explains all trades and is not only professional, he is also enthusiastic which tends to indicate he enjoys his work.
Joel has been very helpful, friendly, friendly but not pushy-very refreshing! All buy recommendations i have acted on are doing well in the 10 weeks i have been a member!
ASR Halo and Macroview
The Halo platform shows most indicators, unfortunately there is no key to use the graphs, no guide and no real support once they have taken your money. The sales people only care about signing you up, they grossly mislead me into trading fees associated with their Macroview platform which itself is expensive to subscribe to. The staff that look after your portfolio are nice enough to talk to but have not helped my portfolio at all, in fact they seem to be the only winners with their trading fees charged. I should have sold a lot of stock earlie...r and suggested stock has crashed. The Halo research platform would work ok for you if there was a bit of included training that didn't cost you additional money to get and then just use it with a bank trading platform as its cheaper. If you look at the advertised 12 months past performance keep in mind the last 2 months figures are no where near the last 12 months where the massive covid slump took its toll. Any return from that point will look great. Ask for the last 3 months returns to get an accurate idea of their performance. Remember they are all like this, Motley fool and others included. And they always try to sell products that should be included as an extra. They make sure they look after themselves. I am fairly disappointed considering the money I have shelled out and returns I have got.
It is good to work with trusted professionals
I am providing the review of the Australia Stock Report and after 2 months of very positive experience I am more than happy to provide a recommendation on my experiences so far.
I am in my 60s, am just entering the share market after some absence and I require an organisation to support me with solid advice. I selected Australian Stock Report. I was impressed with their unique software HALO but have not trialled it yet. Mark Redmond provide great assistance in establishing my account.
I ventured into Macrovue to enable me to buy shares inter...nationally and Daniel Urbanic became my financial advisor. Daniel is quite simply fantastic to deal with. Very approachable, very knowledgeable and answers every one of my queries within 1 – 2 hours; I believe this to be unique. Daniel appreciates the importance of acting quickly in response to opportunities in the share market. Daniel provided advice to set up my small portfolio and within 2 weeks I already have seen positive returns prompting me to extend my portfolio with Daniel’s sound advice. I am convinced my experience with Australia Stock Report, with its professional team, will provide me with a positive experience in investing in the share market locally and internationally. Alex M
Should of joined with Logan Wong and ASR years ago
I have only been with Logan a few months
his knowledge, attitude, plan and explanation of what he wants to do are brilliant.
we have finalized a few buy and sells and I am 100% happy
only regrets I made to small steps to begin with.
My advisor for Australian Stock Report's "Macrovue" (Phillip Aries) has given advice that has led to profitable positions. Moreover he listens, gives reasons for his recommendations and is not pushy. Robert.
Thank you ASR - great system
Initial issues have been resolved with a team of professional people interested in making sure that their clients achieve the best from the HALO system. Training, tech support, advice and follow up service has been great. This is a good system with new version making an even better user experience. I am very pleased with the response to earlier issues and look forward to using HALO to its full extent in my trading decisions. Particular thanks to the HALO service manager, Gareth, Jason and Brendan.
The most useful investment tool.
I carry out research 8 - 10 times a week. The information provided is comprehensive and very useful. Justin Ishac, my advisor, is in regular contact and has put me into some good trades.
Better value elsewhere
Hardly any new recommendations. Charts are totally inadequate and lots of very important indicators missing Useless for serious investors/trader
No proper glossary
void of definition or how to use guide for hakey shakey
Difficult platform - very pushy misleading salesman - useless to me
I was relentlessly pursued by a company adviser to purchase a subscription as well as being misled as to how ASR worked and how the ädviser would work with me. I was led to believe he would assist me with my portfolio. What was not said was that they wanted access to my Comsec bank account along with charging me $100 for each trade they made on my behalf, this is after paying them $2,479.00 for a two year subscription plus they would add on an extra year for good-will. I find I am unable to follow the platforms and in many cases unable to read ...the font which in the stats looks like a font of 8. Far too small to read. I find this subscription is a complete waste of money, unhelpful, far too complicated and not helpful to me at all. Before a month was up I phoned to ask what the cooling off period was and was told it was only 7 days, too late for me to have a refund. I would like a refund as I do not have any thing usable for the money I gave in good faith. Diane from Fremantle W.A.
High Pressure selling tactics
I was a little interested in this service, attended a few webinars and did not expect the high pressure to sign up to their newsletters. A good service should sell itself. The guy was relentless and I eventually had to hang up- he just wouldn't listen. This really made me question their ethics.
Promise the world, deliver little
Had to go to Motley Fool to get what I needed. Feel I have been ripped off. I paid 2yrs subscription then was forgotten about. I want a refund please. Have requested 3 times for a call back from an advisor. No call back. Have been doing well on my own thanks to Motley Fool. But Australian Stock Report has been terrible.
excellent platform!!! transformed my investing potential
After stumbling across the team at Austrailian stock report and their amazing HALO platform whilst sifting through the mountains of invisting information on the internet i knew instaintly that it was exactly what i needed.
I have been a member of ASR for approx 3 months now and have been well satisfied with evrything about it. I recieve regular phone calls from my consultant, (Joel) to assist me with any trouble shooting i may need assistance with, the weekly reaserch webinars are a personal favourite, but the best part about it is i now hav...
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Revisiting my subscription to ASRW.
Have been working with Mark Redmond, who has most pleasantly and helpfully fascilitated my workings with HALO. He has been most approachable. That encouraged me to delve further into what ASRW has to offer. His videos enabled me to understand HALO. He recommended Tom Armstrong to me.
Tom has been very helpful in rebuilding our portfolio. I appreciate his clear analysis and advice. He gives me "as it really is" advice and is sensitive to my thoughts at the same time, exactly what I need..
Both gentlemen are unfailingly courteous and ready to assist in whatever way they can.
Until now I had never met either gentlemen.
Questions & Answers
Is anyone using ASR short term SMS messages of stock to buy/sell?
How are they performing with MACROVUE please?
It seems like a great product. More so for buying and selling of international stocks. I have stuck with Comsec. Too much to take in as a new investor in stocks. I will most likely become a Macrovue user. For now, I am less overwhelmed dealing in the ASX.
Tdhank you Donna, I too have a Comsec account.
How does Commsecs fees compare for international trades
I was persuaded to try Australian Stock Report on the 2nd Sept. I was looking for a good Portfolio recording management etc facility. The Salesman on the phone was extremely pleasant but very keen to sell me a 'package', he eventually got the better of me by offering a discount (on a thought were exceptionally high fees). I only gave in to try the product when he offered in writing a 60 day money back guarantee.
I have 'tried' the Hala portfolio recording etc part of the offering - nothing special I find - and I have no wish to use any of the other facilities offered.
I have now tried unsuccessfully to take advantage of the money back guarantee but I am not sure how to find the best person in the company to go to to claim my money back.
The original salesman is not interested in answering any emails.
What do you recommend I do? Please.

found this guy on LinkedIn -Michael Murphy. Sales and operations manager. Might be worth a try
They come up with strong sell packages. I eventually purchased a two year package in May 2020 for Halo, webinars and their Pats service. I was promised a call from an Advisor during the sale and given a 2 wk money back guarantee. I tried several times to speak with an Advisor with no success. I still have not spoken to an Advisor nor had my phone calls returned. The only calls I receive are marketing calls to upsell on products and services I haven't got. I get these calls from a salesperson offering huge discounts ( an approach taken exactly like their first sale to me), after speaking to their 'Manager'. These calls come immediately after I sit in on one of their weekly Webinars.
I tell them the same msg. I am yet to find value in what I have, why would I spend more?
One person I have had great help from was one of the Salespeople, Simon from their Melbourne office last month. He helped me understand Halo more and how to take advantage of their Pats. And useful info in Macrovue. He also gave me his direct number if I had any other problems even tho, I didn't take up the extra services.
There is so much to learn when investing in stocks for the first time. I have done a lot of reading and worked my way finally all around CBAs commsec which I find useful. I'm getting there, but still feel I jumped too early with that first sale from ASR. DM
I too have subscribed for a long period. After the initial flurry of calls, then nothing. No answering of emails or phone calls and all I wanted to know was if there were any training materials for Halo. There is, very basic, home made and not a lot of useful instruction beyond what you can work out for yourself. I recently had some success with contact by joining a webinar and typing my claims of lack of service, set and forget approach, and not worth the money into the webinar questions. I quickly got a phone call and some service. Bomb their webinars is my tip.
