Welcome to the 19th edition of my BullCharts
software Tip Sheets, focussing on tips and hints for BullCharts (the
This Tip Sheet is just a real quick one - a
quick discussion about the BullCharts Tool
bars (see below). Many thanks to Belinda for
asking about this in an email last week.
I have been rather busy
getting started with my
Weekly Share Market Analysis
(complete with a few charts). I have now
completed the fourth Weekly Market Analysis.
It includes a Weekly email with a little
information for anyone who wants to receive
it (see the

details and 7 charts for my Toolbox Members

Please note: - the
presentation I will do at
BullCharts User Group meeting (this coming
week) is on the topic
"Beware the Bears - An analysis of 2
decades of Aussie bear markets".
As if I wasn't busy enough, as
many of you
know, I am now the Secretary and
Vice-President of the ATAA Melbourne Chapter,
as well as a director on the ATAA National
Board. (Maybe I just don't know when to say

site - an arsenal of weapons to help you
tackle the share market - now includes a
special Members-only Area.
I am always happy to receive
suggestions for these Tip Sheets (and my
Toolbox web site). Please feel free to

topics for these Tip Sheets or the
monthly eNewsletter articles.
Good luck with your trading.

|BullCharts Toolbars - Display/Hide
In BullCharts there are many toolbars that
can be displayed, or hidden.
To see a list of them, use the menu option
View - Toolbars.
By default, the more common ones are already
displayed around the BullCharts window.
|Move the Toolbars
Like with most Windows programs, it is
possible to relocate a toolbar from its
current location around the window, to
Notice that the toolbars are normally
"docked" around the edge of the window. That
is, they are docked as opposed to "floating".
With any docked toolbar (like in the
accompanying graphic here), notice that at
the very left hand end there is a stack of
little dashes that indicates the start of the
You can mouse left-click on this little stack
of dashes and "drag" the toolbar to another
When you click and drag the toolbar away from
the edge of the window, it becomes a
|Watch the video
To help make the above text description make
more sense, I have made a 20-second video (no
audio - it takes longer). Click
here to see the video on my YouTube channel.
Note the following key points:
- The Chart Style toolbar is initially
docked across the top of the BullCharts
- When you left-mouse click on the left end
of the toolbar, the mouse cursor changes to a
small cross with arrows.
- While holding down the left mouse button,
you can drag the toolbar into the window.
- If you release the mouse button, the
toolbar will "float" in the window.
- You can then re-grab the toolbar anywhere
along the "title bar" of the toolbar, and
drag it around the window to another
- If you drag it close to the edge of the
window, it will try to "dock" in that
- Release the mouse button to leave it
there for now.
- If the toolbar is not exactly where you
want it, you can grab the left end again, and
slide it left/right, or up/down into the
My own preferred location for this toolbar
across the bottom of the window, between the
middle and the right hand end.
The reason for this is because most of the
time when I want to use this toolbar, my
mouse cursor is in the lower right corner of
the window. So it makes sense to have this
This also explains why I have the Line
Studies toolbar docked down the right hand
side of my window. You can see this in the

window to make the video compact - my
BullCharts window is not normally that small

Weekly Tip Sheets are included in Brainy's
eNewsletters that are now bundled into Brainy's
Market Toolbox Membership privileges. Feel free to

These bi-weekly Tip Sheets for BullCharts* users
are intended to be short, quick grabs of

but in much more detail. The eNewsletters articles also cover Technical
Analysis and Share Trading topics.

BullCharts, hit the F1 key), and the relevant User Guide

|This TipSheet might look strange?
This TipSheet has been composed in HTML and
distributed using an online service, and is
intended to be viewed in HTML (ie. web language) format. Some parts
might look a little strange, especially
if you are viewing a basically text-only version. I am
working on a text-only version.
We have also found that some web-mail clients
(eg. Hotmail and Yahoo mail) can mess up some aspects.
Please feel free to send me feedback if
anything looks strange.
Good luck with your trading.

There are no more workshops or seminars
scheduled for the rest of this year.
There are two seminars planned for early 2010
- session details, dates, costs, venue, etc.
are on my
web site here.
(But due to a lack of interest and feedback,
there are no BullCharts training workshops
planned for 2010 - if interested in a topic,
please feel free to suggest it.)
The regular venue I now use for most sessions
is the Vermont South Community House.
To enrol for any of these, you need to
VSCH directly by phone or email.
If you have any questions, please feel
free to email or phone me (or catchup at a
BullCharts User Group meeting, or an ATAA
meeting - I am now the Victorian Chapter
Vice-President, and a National ATAA Board
