    Hi all.

    In a general sense, would you need an AFSL for any of the following?
    • Creating an automated (Forex) trading system which is only used by myself (with the source code privately hosted on GitHub). I will only be trading my own money.
    • Creating my own journalling software which is only used by myself (with the source code privately hosted on GitHub).
    • Posting images of charts on social media without providing any advice or explanation of any strategies.
    The ASIC website doesn't really give me a definite answer and at this stage I'd like to avoid consulting with a lawyer unless it becomes absolutely necessary.

    Thanks very much.

    Your not giving financial advice so your fine in my opinion.
