Both, Sky. One is buying and one is selling, in order that the trade may go through. Was that your question?

Re:The last 30 trades.

Thanks for the info. Please let me ask this, if you click on a share code the next window will open and you will see the last 30 trades in the right middle part of the page. Now it only indicate the date, time, volume and price if I can recall. The trade could be a buy or sell? Or is it only sell?

Re:The last 30 trades.

My understanding is that a trade represents the fact that someone successfully bought and someone successfully sold so it represents both a buy and a sell. If the price is closer to the latest bid price then the 'buyer' probably 'won' that trade. If the price is closer to the latest sell price then the 'seller' probably 'won' that trade. Hope that makes sense.
