by Stephanie Stefanovic, Content Manager, Sharesight | Sep 27th 2021

Welcome to the September 2021 edition of Sharesight’s monthly ASX trading snapshot, where we look at the top 20 trades Sharesight users made on the ASX during the month.

In this snapshot, buy trades were led by the Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF (ASX: VAS), closely followed by Fortescue Metals (ASX: FMG), which saw its share price strongly decline throughout September due to a sudden fall in iron ore prices. Sell trades were also led by Fortescue Metals, followed by BHP (ASX: BHP), which had a busy month planning to buy and sell off various assets. Overall, this month’s top trades were dominated by ETFs, with the remaining trades heavily weighted towards mining stocks.
