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 is
now four years, and these eNews emails help you to navigate to related
and useful information each month.
This month's focus:
Investing in Cyclical Stocks
The ASX again invited me to write a contribution for the monthly ASX Investor Update
newsletter (on behalf of the ATAA
) to be published on Tuesday 9th October. You might know that I was also asked to contribute to the June issue
evaluating four "mum and dad" stocks, and the August issue
on the topic of Price Breakouts
I also have a special web page
with links to key information from these ASX Investor Update
newsletters. And you can see past editions of all these newsletters at the ASX web site
. They are sent each month to 220,000 registered free subscribers to the ASX service
More details on this month's focus 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.
Investing in Cyclical Stocks
For the October ASX Investor Update
newsletter I was asked to explain how we could use technical analysis
to identify cyclical stocks, and to chart some cyclical stocks against
their relevant sector index. Instead of doing this, I have
written some material which could be a little controversial. It
basically explains how it is difficult to justify spending a lot of time
analysing sectors, and the economic cycle, because it can be complex,
and very vague, involving a lot of assumptions (guesswork). Anyway, you
should read the article when it is published by the ASX on 9th October,
or read the same material in my new eBook Article ST-6310 (see the link
I have prepared some materials as follows:
are now a total of 124 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a
total of 547 pages of information! You can see the Table of Contents for all Articles here
(recently new or updated ones are highlighted), and the Detailed Toolbox Index here

eBook (PDF) Articles - Summary
Since October 2008 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 540 pages of material
in more than 120 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:

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.
Always happy to receive feedback, or suggestions for new content or improvements.
Until next month,
happy investing or trading,
