This month's focus below is the
fifth one in the current series and
follows on from last month's description
of the investing career of Nicolas Darvas,
author of the best-seller
"How I Made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market".  


The monthly focus in the last few months has been:

This month's focus:
Nicolas Darvas - Darvas Box and tools 

To support last month's focus, there was a
new eBook (PDF) Article: ST-6440, "Nicolas Darvas - $2,000,000".
Toolbox members can view and download it here...
and non-members can see the Page1 preview here


Last month's article was an introduction to Nicolas Darvas, and described how he spent 5 years playing with the market winning a small fortune before losing it. The article summarised his eventual strategy that he devised after this 5 years of practise, and includes his views about the usefulness or otherwise of brokers, advisers, newsletters and fundamental analysis. You might be surprised at his views on this. You can download the Article using the links above.


This month I have written two new eBook (PDF) Articles to explain the Darvas Box that Darvas devised, and how to use it in charting software:

This month's two new eBook Articles take the total tally in the collection to more than one hundred! You can see the Master List of all Articles here, or the Detailed Topic Index here. And don't forget to see the revised Table of Contents pages (see links in side-bar at right).


Many people have heard about Nicolas Darvas the professional dancer, and that he made $2,000,000 in the stock market in an 18 month period. But it is not so well known that he was an educated economist, and that he spent 5 years experimenting in the market before he discovered a good strategy and made his fortune.


Along the way he tried fundamental analysis, and concluded it is mostly useless. He devised his infamous Darvas Box theory which worked a treat. But he included some key investing principles to drive his profits higher faster. To find out how he did this, you can read his book, or read the summary in my eBook Article.


Robert, I do hope you find this information very useful.

eBook (PDF) Articles - Summary 

Over the last two years I have accumulated quite a collection of eBook (PDF) Articles on three subject areas - Share Trading/Investing, Technical Analysis and BullCharts software (actually 404 pages of material in 101 articles). These Articles are invaluable for both new and experienced investors and traders.


I am now writing brief monthly notes in this eNews email to highlight specific Articles on targeted topics. I am also writing new Articles and updating existing ones as required. For more information about the changes, see the December 2010 eNewsletter email in the eNews email Archive.


For more information see:

Introduction changed - January 2011 
As of early January with the change in publishing approach for 2011, I significantly revised the Introduction Article and the Overview Article for each of the three subject areas.
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 at all, 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,

Robert B. Brain
