I use Halo all the time.
I use Halo all the time. Even without employing the scan and blend functions, I find it to be so very valuable in managing my trades and my long-term investments.
Prior to attending one of Gareth Iggo’s seminars, I spent a lot of time, every day. For every stock I purchased, I read extensively about the company, the people in charge and the work they were engaged in. I checked my charting software to see its price trend. I consulted numerous sources to obtain fundamental data. I searched for the EPS, dividends, sales, income, free cash flo...
Fantastic information and support
I am impressed with ASR's research that puts you into the right stock at the right time and the right price. Invaluable for anyone managing their own Super Fund or investing for others.
So Glad I Joined
Jan from SA
I joined the Australian Stock Report in October 2019.
They had a hard time encouraging me to join to become a member but they eventually won and I am so pleased they did
The broker Sunny Kang was allotted to me.
He is an extremely intelligent and caring person and works hard to meet my needs.
I have learnt so much in the last 6 months that it does not faze me if the market goes up or down as you can win either way.
After 3 months I was given the opportunity to join up for 10 years which I have.
Unreliable, Poor Communication, Refund Difficult
I Joined for a 2 year period on 5/12/19.
I received one phone call to see how I was going. (Training promised not forthcoming)
After spending time with the site decided it was not for me and sent an email on 1/1/20 setting out the deficiencies as I saw it and REQUESTING A REFUND within the cooling-off period
No response or refund received so sent another email on 7/2/20 requesting refund and acknowledgement of receipt of my request.
About a week later received a phone call asking how I was liking the service.
Told them no good and advising of e...

Halo - great product for investors
Halo is a really good product for those who invest in shares, foreign exchange or managed funds. It has so many different pre-determined searches to use as well as parameters to input when defining your own search. Whether you design a search using technical or fundamental monitors or virtually anything you want to input, or use the available options, you will get great value from the Halo platform.
I have been extremely pleased with Halo.
I have been extremely pleased with Halo. It is simply a brilliant software package.
It has paid for itself in spades since I took out my subscription to it and have now had it for a number of years.
I am a short-term trader as well as a long-term investor. Halo is brilliant for both purposes as well as for fundamental and technical traders.
The features I like in particular include the following which work together in assisting to make an informed decision on the value of any particular company:
The projections for the next three financi...al years and in particular the percentage growth over that time and the estimated PE values too. The benefit of this for me is that where I see good growth as well as a low PE my feeling is that I can hardly lose (in the absence of something out of left field). Broker consensus recommendations (including the number of brokers covering the stock) give you an excellent idea of what the community is thinking as does the consensus price target.
excellent service so far
ASR has provided an excellent service.I am new to this and Dvid has helped me to buy Australian shares and Phillip is in the process of helping me to buy International shares.I was scared to do it my self as I am a novice and they have been very patient, easy to understand and I am finding the experience very enjoyable.
I have recommended them to my friends and colleagues and would not hesitate recommending them to other people interested in trading stocks. Vivien
Do not waste your money with this company
I was charged for a service I never agreed too. After much discussion it was agreed I would get a refund but a month later I am still waiting. As for their training -they promise too ring at a certain time but never do.
Be very careful with this lot as for me they have proved very untrustworthy
I hope this discount offer is as good as it sounds, time will tell
Too soon to give a realistic review, but my introduction to Halo was very impressive. I have already been given a few growth shares recommendations .
When signing up I was offered a good price discount, but no time to consider properly. If I did not pay the card on the day, there was no discount. This selling attitude should be changed.
A solution to self trade with confidence, advice and good information
I've been contacted after downloading a report from the Australian Stock Report website. The adviser I'm dealing with have been persuasive, not being pushy to me to subscribe to Macrovue to get access to thematic portfolio that have potential to perform better than the market. The platform is user friendly and contains a lot of information that can bring confidence in your decisions. The adviser can also help in the investment.
What I like compared to other investors is the full access to where you invest your savings and full control of it. All is transparent.
Macrovue is great, but the documentation?
The idea behind Macrovue: enabling investors to invest in shares from around the world -- which although the shares are in groups (called Vues), they are not managed funds, so the shares rise and fall on their own merits not on the alleged skill of a fund manager. For example, all the shares might be in Water-Liquid Gold, 5G Wireless Technology, Aussie Large Cap, IT, Tech Stars, Warren Buffet Top 10, or Robotics. This results in interest being achieved, usually way, way above the 'average' managed fund. But the documentation? Every page is unda...ted, there is no time imprint, there is generally no investor's name on any document and there is no Account Number. For example, if 100 investors printed off the individual Performance of their Macrovues and then threw them up in the air, no one would be able to prove which Performance report was his or hers when they recovered them! If they threw them up in the air over a period of weeks, no one would know what date or time each document was printed, nor who's account was who’s. This applies to Holdings, Vues, Stocks, Statements, Orders, as well as Performance.
No, do not even trial
Do not even trial anything from this company. They do not have the ability or good conscience to refund your money in a reasonable time if to do not want the product. They can charge your credit card the instant you say yes, but weeks of phone calls and emails and excuses and still no refund.
***Attention all self investors this is a must have - forget the rest - buy the best***
I joined ASR about 18 months ago starting with the investing report. I quickly switched to HALO as it suited me best for medium to long term trading using my super funds within the super fund. It has been absolutely invaluable and I would never have been able to make returns without the information that is provided and training. The annual fees that are charged you will recoup tenfold in the returns you will generate. I do not make any investing decisions without checking with HALO. I look forward to adding MACROVUE sometime soon to compli...ment my existing portfolio. My husband and I can now look forward to our retirement in 7 years and not worry about skimping on a pension. Thank you ASR Team for peace of mind and a very bright affordable future.
Shoddy results, owner and product
I lost money with all their advice over the last year, gave them a 2nd chance resubscribing and boy what a mistake that was!
Don't sign up, not worth the money.
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.
