email is going to all my Toolbox Members, and to the people who have
registered 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).
As I mentioned last month,
I am making some changes to the monthly eBook Articles email.
Members can see those comments in the email archive.
This month's focus below is on the topic of Stop Loss.
It is the one very important concept that successful investors and
traders use to minimise their investment losses, and to maximise their
Over the next few months, the topics of focus will include:
- Trends - How to spot and ride them for profit
- Support and Resistance - How to leverage these
- Nicholas Darvas - his winning strategy in detail (author of the best-selling "How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market").
Please read on....
This month's focus:
To start learning more about the topic of Stop Loss,
go straight to the free Stop Loss web page in
the Share Market Toolbox.
If you are not yet convinced of its usefulness,
then read on here first...
Many successful investors and traders have dearly embraced the concept of a Stop Loss.
They know it is critically important to achieving success in the
market. They understand the concept, and they implement it religiously.
If you can answer yes to any of the following, then perhaps the humble Stop Loss can benefit your investing as well:
- Are you losing too much money on investments that fall in value?
- Are you giving away too much profit when an investment rises in value, only to see it fall back a long way?
- Do you want to optimise the amount of money that you have "at risk" with each investment?
The Stop Loss
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 is a very useful idea to implement.
For a good introduction to this topic, see the free Stop Loss web page in the Share Market Toolbox.
That web page includes some great introductory comments, and some web
links to relevant eBook Articles, and also to some slide presentations.
It also shows a couple of clear examples of the losses that can be
sustained if we don't implement a Stop Loss, and touches on some different ways to determine a Stop Loss.
eBook Articles - Key changes?
the last two years I have accumulated quite a collection of eBook
Articles on three subject areas - Share Trading/Investing, Technical
Analysis and BullCharts software (actually 380 pages of material in 98
articles). These Articles are invaluable for both new and experienced
investors and traders.
announced in last month's eNews email, I am now writing brief monthly
notes in this email to highlight specific Articles on targetted topics.
I am writing new Articles as required, and updating existing ones as
well. For more information about the changes, see last month's
eNewsletter email in the eNews email Archive.

The new "front matter"
As announced last 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. 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.
- Share Trading / Investing:
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.
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 at all, simply contact me by email or phone. The
best email address for this is: firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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.
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.
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,
