Monthly Share Market eNews email update
Sectors, stock comparison + RSC
eNews + eBook Articles Update #51 - April 2013
Hello Reader,    
This month's share market eNews email is going to all of my subscribing Share Market Toolbox Members as normal, and to some non-members. It includes some invaluable information about the share market sectors, and in particular a comparison of bank stocks, and comparing to the finance sector Index (the XFJ). For the technical analysts (chartists) out there, this also includes information about the Relative Strength Comparison (RSC) chart indicator, which is sometimes referred to as the Comparitive Relative Strength tool. More details are included below.
Any non-member who no longer wants to receive this material on a regular basis can simply unsubscribe from ALL topics using the SafeUnsubscribe link at the bottom - or just Update Your Profile to change your interests. (NOTE: Toolbox Members and BullCharts mailing list members should not unsubscribe, as it will remove you from all my mail lists.)

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....  

About the eNews emails...
Just a short note to the recently new Toolbox Members:- These share market 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:
Market sectors + RSC indicator 
This month's eNews email is on the same topic as my contribution to the May edition of the ASX Investor Update email newsletter. When the May edition is published (14th May) the article will include information on the following topics and questions:
  • Are the banks too expensive, as suggested by some analysts?
  • What is fair value and how to determine it. 
  • The market sectors, indexes and GICS codes.
  • The banking sector performance. 
  • The RSC (Relative Strength Comparison) chart indicator.  
  • The trend is your friend.  
To support the information in this Investor Update article for my Toolbox members, I have prepared two new eBook (PDF) Articles. More details are included 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.

Market sectors and the RSC indicator
For this month's focus I have prepared two new eBook (PDF) Articles for Toolbox Members to support the material in the ASX Investor Update newsletter as follows:
  • Article ST-6260, "Sectors and the banks" - a new 5-page article with a discussion about the ten GICS sectors, and focusing on the financial sector with a particular study of three of the Australian banks (non-members can see the free page 1). 
  • Article TA-4510, "RSC chart indicator" - a new 6-page article that explains the Relative Strength Comparison chart indicator, how it is derived, exactly what it means, and how to use it (non-members can see the free page 1). 
There are now a total of 131 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a whopping total of 584 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.

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

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 550 pages of material in more than 125 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 either 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. 
Always happy to receive feedback, or suggestions for new content or improvements.
Until next month,
happy investing or trading,
