Chart patterns - tell us all
|Monthly Toolbox eNews update ||#67 - Dec 2014 / Jan 2015|
This Share Market Toolbox 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.)
After studying technical analysis for quite a few years, and talking
about it to people, and teaching it in seminars and in meeting
presentations, it took me a while before the "light went on" so to
speak. After discussing this with many people for a few months, we
finally came up with the key words that summarise technical analysis - "Price charts summarise the underlying opinions of the market participants...". And one key way to read and understand the stories in the price charts is by understanding the chart patterns.
So, for this 2-month
December/January issue of the Toolbox eNews update email I have gone
back to my existing eBook (PDF) Articles on Chart Patterns, and
re-worded and tweaked them and added new material so as to be clearer
about the usefulness of chart patterns. See more on this below.
And if you would like to see a history of the Toolbox changes, see the special content update blog, and you can select the option there to "Follow" that blog to get details about new updates as soon as they are made.

longer wants to receive this material on a monthly basis can simply
unsubscribe from ALL topics using the SafeUnsubscribe link at the bottom

is for general education only, and is not advice of any sort.

About the Toolbox eNews emails...
Here's a short note
to the recently new Toolbox Members, and new readers of this monthly
email:- These share market Toolbox 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 six 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 pays to understand the stories in the price charts.
This month's focus:
Chart patterns tell the story
The relevant information on this topic this month in the Share Market Toolbox includes the following:-
- New web page - Chart Patterns
- This new web page presents some of the basic information on chart
patterns, and includes links to the relevant eBook Articles.
- eBook Article TA-3410, "Chart patterns - introduction"
- This 9-page article was first written a few years ago, and only
available to Toolbox Members. Because of the importance of understanding
the usefulness of price charts, I have removed all the advanced chart
pattern details out of this Article so that it is now just 4 pages long,
and able to be put in the public domain and made available to the
general public. All the advanced pattern information is now in the new Article TA-3420.
- eBook Article TA-3420, "Chart patterns - more details"
- This new eBook Article comprises a lot of material that was in
Article TA-3410, and has been re-worded and tweaked. This Article is 7
pages long with an introduction to a number of chart pattern types.
- eBook Article TA-3500, "Chart patterns - Triangles" - This existing 3-page article provides more information about the various Triangle chart patterns.
- eBook Article TA-3600, "Megaphone chart pattern" - This existing 5-page article provides information about the special expanding wedge pattern known as the Megaphone pattern.
Toolbox non-Members who can't see the above reserved eBook Articles can at least see the first page of them from the Articles Table of Contents page in the Toolbox.
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 147 Articles in this collection - a huge total of 675 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 670 pages of material
in more than 140 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:
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: email@example.com
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,
