Monthly Share Market eNews email update
Exit strategies - in detail
eNews + eBook Articles Update #56 - October 2013
Dear reader,     
This month's Share Market eNews email is going to all of our subscribing Share Market Toolbox Members as normal, and to the non-Members who have expressed an interest in receiving it.


Exit strategies in more detail 


Last month I wrote some material on the topic of exit strategies - one that is hardly discussed, but very deserving of more discussion. This includes our BullCharts User Group members at meetings earlier this year, and some of the U3A members. It will be the topic of discussion at my next visit to the U3A (Manningham) Stockmarket group in 3 weeks time.
I wrote an introduction to the topic of exit strategies a year ago (in October 2012, see that eNews email), then we had a major discussion on the topic at two of the BullCharts User Group meetings in Melbourne. Then I produced some material on it for last month's eNews email.
For this month, I thought it would not be too hard to expand on last month's material - but I was so wrong. I have updated last month's material, plus totally revamped some older information, and prepared a lot of new stuff as well. And there is even more material to come later. See all the details below.
Next month's topic: IPOs - are they worth it? There are more and more news stories now about the flood of Initial Public Offerings (IPO) that are coming to the market. But are they worth it? Should we invest in IPOs? This commentator has strong views, which I will share in next month's eNews for subscribing Toolbox Members - so stay tuned.


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.

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:
Share market exit strategies
Many investors and traders happily invest in the share market, and many people buy shares using a sound entry strategy. And many of the more successful investors utilise a sound Stop Loss approach to limit losses whenever things go wrong. But there is actually more to exits than just a simple Stop Loss
There is in fact a diverse range of approaches that can be utilised for exiting a position, including several that take advantage of share price weakness to maximise the captured profit. Many of the good ones utilise some form technical analysis

Share market exit strategies
In this month's focus on exit strategies I have made a minor update to last month's revised Article, and some major updates to another one, plus two new eBook Articles. When you see the material you might notice that I have grouped together similar exit strategies under some key headings. My research has shown that these classifications are not in widespread use, but I think it helps the reader to understand how the large variety of different approaches relate to each other. (I like to pigeon-hole things to help get a better grasp on the ideas - that's the way I think.)
  • New web page - Exit Strategies. Due to the importance of this topic, and all the new material I am writing, I thought I should post a new web page.
  • Article ST-6115, "Strategies for entry and exit". I have made some minor updates to this free introductory Article. This 8-page article is free to all, and includes a discussion about how the markets move in cycles, which makes it all the more important to avoid the traditional buy-and-hold approach of yesteryear. This article was originally only 3 pages long and included an extra 5 pages of notes last month (with minor updates this month).
  • Article TA-6030, "Exit strategies - Introduction". This free 4-page article from last year is now totally refreshed and updated and provides an introduction to the technical analysis aspects of dealing with exit strategies. It is reduced down to 4 pages, because some of the material has been moved out and expanded into the next two articles.
  • Article TA-6031"Exit strategies - Part 1, Time, price and money exits" is a new 5-page article which focuses on time-based exits, price target exits, and money-based exits. (Non-members can see the free page 1). 
  • Article TA-6032"Exit strategies - Part 2, Price chart features" is a new 4-page article focusing on the different exit approaches which utilise features of the price chart to identify potential price weakness. (Non-members can see the free page 1). 
  • Article TA-6033"Exit strategies - Part 3, Chart indicators". Due to the volume of material written this month in the above Articles, this new article will have to wait until December (because I will be writing on IPOs for the November eNews).
There is more material in other eBook Articles, with references to these in the Article ST-6115. And there is still a lot more that can be written on this topic, especially regarding the technical analysis aspects. 
Don't forget to see the updated Table of Contents pages for all articles (see links in the side-bar at right). There are now a total of 134 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a whopping total of 613 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:
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,
