Read the honest truth about the sharemarket.
Develop or fine tune your investing/trading strategies
using share price charts (technical analysis), or
learn about the investment strategies of others.

For new and experienced investors and traders.
And beware of the sharks in the ocean!

Believe it or not, but:
Share market 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.

"The best time to prepare for the next bull market is
before the bulls have bolted."

Nimble Short Term Investing - Conventional age-old investing advice was severely challenged in the GFC (2008 onwards). Many investors realised there is a need to take a slightly more active approach themselves, using a clever blend of Fundamental and Technical Analysis, AND a Stop Loss to quit the losers early. Read more about the Nimble Short Term Investing approach.

Funda-Technical Analysis Investing - types, styles, philosophies, approaches
There are many different approaches to studying the market - some are more "accurate" than others.
Charting, Technical Analysis and (Aussie) software
The underlying emotions of fear, greed and hope drive share prices, all of which are reflected in the share price charts and in the volume bars on the chart, and in the characteristics of candlesticks on a candle chart. And successive days or weeks of price movement can form patterns on the chart which also reflect the underlying market sentiment.

No images in emails?
Sometimes you can't see the images that are included in our emails - apparently it's a common problem. This can be because the email software that some people use is automatically set to "do not display jpeg pictures". This can apply to Outlook and Gmail, and other email programs. To fix this, simply go into the email program Settings, and adjust the settings (see a Google search for more info).

Small images in emails?
Most of the images I include in my Toolbox emails are tiny versions of larger ones. I do this to minimise the size of the email, and to optimise the download time for you to see it on your device, which might be a phone on a poor internet connection. I usually include a link to access a larger version of those images, often just be clicking on the small image.
