The ASX 50 Ldrs is a list of the top 50 companies by total value of the shares. A list of companies that are in this index can be obtained from in the Index view section. Alternatively the Weekend Australian has the top 150 companies by value and you could take the top 50 companies list from that.

As to when to trade the shares I haven't seen any back testing that suggest that trading on one month is better than any other. Different companies announce their dividends at differnt times so I'm just going to trade on 1 year and a day to get full indexation.

Someone else may be able to shed some light on this.
