December Articles
#25 - December 2010

Dear Reader, 


I am sending this special update email to all my Toolbox Members, as well as to the people who have registered at some stage to receive occasional information from me about the Share Market. (Any non-member who no longer wants to receive this material can simply unsubscribe using the link above).


Don't miss the news below about changes to the eBooks!!

Firstly, I do hope that everyone had a safe and
happy celebration over the Christmas holiday period.
I managed to sneak in a few days of rest and relaxation,
as well as a lot of review and reflection (details below).

So, another year has past, and the month of December was as hectic as it often is - with not enough time to do everything properly (except participate in the festivities - like the Traders Christmas Lunch in Melbourne with about 20 traders attending - a great event with reasonable food for a reasonable price!).


But, this email is supposed to be all
about the eBook (PDF) Articles!!


With yet another year passing, I now have a collection of almost 100 eBook Articles totalling some 380 pages of printed notes that have taken more than 2 years to compile. This is in addition to the earlier BullCharts Tip Sheets (which I must do more of) and the BullCharts tutorial videos that I have started preparing. There is still more material to write; but it is time to change the publication method.


I met up with one of our Toolbox Members from Perth over the holidays, and we had a good chat about a number of things, and this confirmed that it is time to take a step back and change the approach (thank you Rama). 


Please read on.... 


The eBook Articles - What's New? and Why? 
What are these eBook Articles?


I have been writing eBook Articles on three subject areas - Share Trading/Investing, Technical Analysis and BullCharts software. They are invaluable for both investors and traders. There is some introductory information About the Articles here. Anyone can view the list of Articles from the Articles Master List web page, and Toolbox Members can click on the links there to view the Articles. Any non-members can view the "Page 1" of each Article. And the Detailed Topic Index will make it easy to find information on specific topics.


Over recent months there have been many more new Toolbox Members signing up. So I need to do something to help these people understand what the eBook Articles are all about, how to find information, and how to use the Articles effectively. After all, these Articles are a part of the total Toolbox offering to which Toolbox Members have subscribed.


Changes for the future...


Until now I had been writing 3 or 4 new Articles each month over the last 24 months. Instead of new Articles each month I will now be writing some notes that point to specific Articles on specific topics. And in some cases I will need to write new Articles, and update existing ones.


For example, in next month's email (January - to be done in a week or two) I will write about the idea of a Stop Loss. This is something that is very fundamental to minimising our losses, and protecting our capital. It doesn't matter whether we are an investor or trader, the Stop Loss can be very useful.


Unfortunately, there is not one single way to determine the ideal Stop Loss - there are many. Next month I will write about this, and point to the relevant eBook Articles, and to some of the slide presentation material that covers the same topic.

Changes this month
With the change in publishing approach for 2011, I have significantly revised the Introduction Article, and the Overview Article for each of the three subject areas. The Overview Articles in particular have been revised because when they were originally written, they talked about the information that was going to be included. But now, more than two years later, much of the material is now written.
If you are maintaining your own soft-copy of the Articles, or printing them, then you might want to download the following updates. And recently new Toolbox Members might want to read the Overview Articles to help understand what sort of material is included within the 100 or so published Articles that are available in the Toolbox.
Latest Tables of Contents pages
Don't forget to download the three latest Table of Contents pages at any time. Links to these 2-page PDF files are included in the Quick Links section at right.

The Detailed Topic Index is also available so that we can look up a list of keywords to find out which published articles contain related information. See the link in the Quick Links section at right.
Any problems?

What if you have some sort of problem with accessing the Toolbox and any of these Articles? Or maybe the Username and Password doesn't work.

If there is any problem, simply contact me by email or phone. The best email address for this is: (Occasionally emails disappear - the system thinks they are spam, or the ISP might think they are spam. If I don't reply within a day or so, please contact me by other email address or phone.)
In Closing

There is nothing secret in this email, so feel free to forward it to someone if you think they might benefit from the information, or from being a Toolbox Member. The easiest way to do this is to use the "Forward Email" link at the bottom.

I am also confident that my Toolbox Members won't be sharing their username and password with non-members. It is not fair that I spend all this time preparing the materials, and then my Toolbox Members pay money to have legitimate access, only to let some people pay nothing to read and view the details.

Please feel free to email an individual Article to others as a sample; but if they want online access to all the materials, it is pretty cheap, so they should subscribe as a Toolbox Member. There is information about Toolbox Membership in the Quick Links section at right. 
Happy to receive feedback, or suggestions for new content or improvements.
Until next month,
Happy investing or trading,
