February eBook Articles Update  #39 - Feb 2012
Dear Reader,   
Firstly a short note to the recently new Toolbox Members:- This is a monthly email with some pointers and tips on focused topics. They often include references to specific eBook Articles in my Share Market Toolbox, as well as key web pages in the free area of the Toolbox (eg. on the extensive Share Market web page), and references to the eBook (PDF format) Articles in the Members' Area of the Toolbox. I have been writing these eBook Articles since October 2008 - that's now more than 3 whole years! You can see a quick introduction to the eBook Articles here.

This month's eNews email is going to Toolbox Members as normal (a part of the Toolbox service), and to the people who have registered to receive occasional information about the Share Market. Any non-member who no longer wants to receive this material can simply unsubscribe using the SafeUnsubscribe link at the bottom - or just Update Your Profile to change your interests.
Please remember, anything mentioned here, and in the referred eBook Articles, is for general education only, and is not advice of any sort.

Please read on....  

This month's focus:
How to reduce risk  
In these monthly eNews emails over the last few months I have covered some topics related to risk management in the share market, including: optimising position size and stock liquidity. And in November I covered the broader topic of money and risk management. Links to those eNews emails (with further links to web pages and eBook Articles) are included below.
As many of you would have seen in my recent Weekly Market Analysis emails, I mentioned that I delivered a presentation to both the Melbourne ATAA in January, and the Manningham U3A in February, on the topic "Useful Tips for Managing Risk". The presentation slides are available in the Toolbox.
So, it is now appropriate for me to write an eBook (PDF) Article on the topic to wrap up all the discussions on Risk Management todate. So this month's eNews focus is to do exactly that.
More details below, so please read on...
Useful tips for reducing risk

In this month's focus I am summarising the recent eBook Articles, and the slide presentation, so that you can easily refer to them, and understand more about the many different ways that we can reduce the risks of investing and trading in the share markets.
Recent public presentations with slide sets:

eBook (PDF) Articles - Summary 

Over the last three years I have accumulated quite a collection of eBook (PDF) Articles on three subject areas - Share Trading/Investing, Technical Analysis and BullCharts software (actually more than 450 pages of material in more than 100 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 see:

Article front pages 
For any new readers of my Toolbox eBook Articles, there are some useful introductory Articles including an Introduction and an Overview Article for each of the three subject areas. You can see them here:
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,
