4 Dec 2020 – List of LIQUID STOCKS and WHICH STOCKS IN WHICH INDEX? are now completed for November 2020

Every month, after the end of trading for the month, I update two key sets of information in the Share Market Toolbox and they are now available:- Stock Liquidity, and Which Stocks in Which Index:

  1. Stock LIQUIDITY – Out of the 2000+ stocks on the Aussie market, only about 500  to 600 of them trade at least 50 times per day on average. Many traders and investors are not comfortable dealing in stocks that trade less then 50 times per day, because it would worsen the chance of selling the stock quickly if you need to (another measure is the total value traded per day, but not considered here). See more details and my updated list of Liquid Stocks. (Note that other metrics should also be considered before trading, including: daily value traded per stock).
  2. Which stocks are in which index? – Exactly which stocks are currently in which of the ten major Australian share market indexes? See my freshly updated list in the Toolbox.

24 Aug 2020 – Price Action Context – added reference on the “Market is like an elephant” web page

Several years ago I posted a web page titled “The market is like an elephant”, and as it happens, this material is related to the fairly new “Price Action Context” web page that I put up a few weeks ago.

So I have now added extra material to the Elephants web page so there are now 4 key consideration points listed instead of the original 3.

See all the detail on the “The market is like an elephant”.

And look out for the sharks in the market.

4 July 2020 – Price Action Context – a new web page to help us understand the markets better

Over a long period now, I have been somewhat frustrated and annoyed by the so-called selective reporting of share market performance over time. The numbers can look at different if we look at different time periods, and there is often a good explanation for a seemingly disappointing market performance.

So, it’s time I posted some useful explanation on this topic, and its all related to my perception of a little-known topic called “Share Market Price Action Context”. I refer to this with the following description:

The study of share market price action in conjunction with other relevant information such as: the price action in previous days or weeks (or months or more),
as well as technical analysis chart features (eg. patterns, support, resistance, etc.); and
other time periods, as well as relevant news and announcements.

Read more on my Price Action Context web page.

12 June 2020 – Toolbox eNews focus – How to judge a bear market bottom

In any bear market situation, or even just a market correction or a major low in the market, it can be very advantageous to be able to spot the bottom of the market as soon as possible after it has passed, so that we can take advantage of the rising share prices. If we misjudge it, we might end up losing a lot of capital as the market turns down for another leg, so it is very important to be confident with our call and be watchful in case we were wrong.

Another issue of the Share Market Toolbox eNews has been published, referring to a new eBook (PDF) Article on exactly this topic of: how to judge a bear market bottom.

This was the discussion topic in a recent BullCharts User Group webinar meeting, with a set of presentation slides to help guide (and record) the discussion.

See the details in the eNews Archive.
