Monthly Share Market eNews email update
Investing for enjoyment,
More on optimising position size,
and the Hull ROAR indicator 
eNews + eBook Articles Update #61 - April 2014
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. (Any non-members who want to access the detail in the Members Area can easily join as a Toolbox Member - it's not expensive.)


Three related topics this month:
(a) Investing for enjoyment? - What?
(b) More information on position sizing? and
(c) The Hull ROAR chart indicator


(a) Invest for enjoyment? People tend to spend somewhat different amounts of time on a range of different activities, including different investment methods. Why is it so? Is it necessary? This is discussed in a new eBook Article (see the details below).
(b) In last month's (March) eNews we talked about some different possibilities regarding position sizing (and a position size calculator); but one thing was missing - an investor-focused overview to help explain why clever position sizing is so important. And also, some discussion about the case study comparison of two position sizing methods to demonstrate how one can be superior to another.


(c) The ROAR indicator, and how to "rank" stocks using the ROAR indicator. When faced with a list of possible stocks for investing, how do we choose just one or two from the list?  The ROAR is one good tool, and is discussed in another new eBook Article (see details below).


Any non-member who no longer wants to receive this material on a monthly basis can simply unsubscribe from ALL topics using the SafeUnsubscribe link at the bottom - or just Update Your Profile to change your interests. (BUT 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 five years, and these eNews emails help you to navigate to related and useful information each month.
Price charts summarise the underlying opinions  
and emotions of the market participants. 
Every chart tells a story. It's very helpful to 
understand the stories in the price charts.

This month's focus:
Triple topics...
Last month we looked at how it can be very beneficial to consider the "optimum" amount of capital to allocate to an investment position in the share market. By risking the maximum amount of money that you have already decided you are prepared to "risk", then you are taking maximum advantage of favourable price movements to maximise profits (assuming that prudent risk management is also in place). The one thing missing from last month's material was an investor-focused overview to help explain why this is so important. After doing some research, and a simplified case study comparison of two position sizing methods, it is now easier to explain it. See the details in the new eBook Article below.
Here are the links to this month's information:-
  • Article ST-4010, "Investing for enjoyment, asset class and diversification" - This new (and free) 3-page eBook Article helps explain why people will spend differing amounts of time focused on different activities. Some spend hours researching, and investing in, collectibles, while others spend days researching and investing in real estate. Why is it so? This article offers an explanation for this, and then discusses the different investable asset classes, and the notion of diversification which some of us think is over-hyped.
  • Article ST-4050, "Optimising position size" - This is a brand new 7-page eBook Article, with some good introductory material especially for investors, to help explain why adjusting position size can be so useful, including reference to the case study comparison mentioned above. Toolbox non-members can see the free page 1.
  • Article TA-6170, "Hull ROAR chart indicator" - This brand new 3-page eBook Article provides an introduction to the Hull ROAR chart indicator which can be used to help rank potential investment stocks into order of share price performance.
Regarding my growing collection of eBook (PDF) Articles, don't forget to see the latest Table of Contents pages for all articles (see links in the side-bar above right). There are now a total of 141 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a huge total of 647 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 which includes the eBook Articles, plus web page references, and helpful videos.
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 630 pages of material in more than 138 articles). These Articles are invaluable for both new and experienced investors and traders. I write brief monthly notes in this eNews email to highlight specific Articles on targeted topics, and sometimes referring to new or updated web pages in the Toolbox (also see a history of Toolbox updates). 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,
