About the eNews emails...
Just a short note to the recently new Toolbox Members:- These eNews
emails always go to Toolbox Members (a part of the Toolbox service),
and to the people who have registered to receive occasional
information about the Share Market. This is a monthly email with some
pointers and tips on focused topics - see a quick intro to the eNews emails
. 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
I have been writing the eBook Articles since October 2008 - that's now
almost four years, and these eNews emails help you to navigate to
related and useful information each month.
This month's focus:
Trends and Trend strength
|A simple trend|
The idea of a trend
on a price chart is very important, hence the adage that "the trend is your friend"
. Something else that is important but rarely discussed is the idea of the strength
of the trend. There are a few chart tools that can be used to help understand trend strength
. This month's eNews focus is on exactly this topic of trends
, and trend strength
More details are below, so please read on...
Recent monthly focus topics
Since starting this new format
for the monthly eNews email in December 2010, I have accumulated many
topic-specific discussions. Rather than list them all here (as I had
been doing), it is best to refer to the latest detailed list in the eNews email archive in the Toolbox.
Trends and strength - the details and links...
I have updated some existing material, and prepared a new eBook Article, as follows:
- Updated Trends web page.
- Article TA-3200, "Trends and trendlines" - is updated
(the free page 1 is here).
- Article TA-3220, "Trend strength" - a brand new 7-page eBook Article (free page 1 here) with a number of price charts explaining how to determine the strength of a trend, and using the following:
- a simple trend line,
- a simple linear regression line,
- Alan Hull's ROAR indicator,
- Guppy's MMA indicator, and
- the ADX indicator.
addition to these, the following free eBook Article has been updated to
provide better information about the current upgrade process for the BullCharts charting software package.
are now a total of 123 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a
total of 541 pages of information! You can see the Master List of all Articles here (recently new or updated ones are highlighted), and the Detailed Toolbox Index here.
Don't forget to see the updated Table of Contents pages for all articles (see links in the side-bar at right).
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 500 pages of material
in more than 115 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

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:

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: 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 either 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.
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,
