Protecting Your Capital
|eNews + eBook Articles Update ||#52 - May 2013|
This month's Share Market eNews email
is going to all of my subscribing Share Market Toolbox
Members as normal, and to the non-Members who have expressed an interest in receiving it.
This one includes some
very useful information touching on strategies for profit and capital
protection. This is the same subject theme as this year's ATAA National Conference
on 21-23 June (for which yours truly is the responsible Conference
Director). I am expecting to pick up some more tips on this subject at
the conference, so that next month I can incorporate them into the
material that I refer to below. Please see the details below.
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
: 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.

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's
more than four years, and these eNews emails help you to navigate to
related and useful information each month.
|This month's focus:
Profit and Capital Protection
month's eNews email is along the subject line of the ATAA Conference
later this month. To help put this subject into perspective, it
incorporates the topics of money and risk management, managing
investment position sizes, utilising a Stop Loss, and gauging market
mood. The are more topics, but they will have to wait until next month.
important aspect that is not covered yet is to do with price alerts.
That is, if we have determined a price at which we want to enter a
position, and we are patiently waiting for the price to get close to our
target, then how can we be alerted when it gets there? This is easy if
we only watch one stock every day. But we might be interested in several
stocks and we might not watch the market every day.
at the other end of the deal when we want to sell, if we pre-determine
our Stop Loss level, how can we find out promptly that the price level
has been hit? These topics will be addressed in an update on this topic
next month, and with reference to broker's tools and the BullCharts charting software tool
support this month's topic I have posted two new web pages in recent
days, and I have prepared and updated 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.
Robert is always very happy to receive feedback about the Toolbox, and the articles and weapons therein.
Please feel free to contact Robert by email or phone.

For this month's
eNews focus I have prepared two new web pages, and written or
updated three eBook (PDF) Articles as follows:
Don't forget to see the updated Table of Contents pages for all articles (see links in the side-bar at right).
- Risk Management web page - A new web page to provide a publicly available introduction to the topic.
- Article ST-4000, "Risk and Money Management" -
A publicly available updated 5-page eBook article that provides an
introduction to the topic of risk and money management, and contains
many references to further materials.
- Divergence (bearish and bullish) web page - A new web page to provide an introduction to this very useful and important technical analysis topic.
- Article TA-5210, "Divergence (bearish and bullish)"
- An updated 6-page eBook article that describes the notion of
divergence on a price chart, and provides some examples (non-members can
see the free page 1).
- Article TA-5420, "Measure rule" - A new 3-page eBook article that explains the useful measure rule - also referred to as the measuring formula (non-members can see the free page 1).
are now a total of 133 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a
whopping total of 590 pages of information! You can see the Table of Contents for all eBook Articles here
(recently new or updated ones are highlighted), and the Master 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 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 please 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:
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
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,
