10 Feb 2017 – Beware the falling stocks – a new web page…

I have wanted to post something into the Share Market Toolbox for a while now, about how the average investor can spot a potentially severe share price crash in a stock they might be holding. If we can see the price fall coming, then we might be able to avoid a major loss of capital.

The final trigger that prompted the posting of this new web page was a news story in the Australian Financial Review newspaper (4th February 2017) entitled: “‘Banner year’ for insider selling as directors dodge corporate disasters”.

See the new web page here, as well as the links to view the news story.

1 Feb 2017 – List of LIQUID STOCKS and WHICH STOCKS IN WHICH INDEX? are now completed for January

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

  1. Stock LIQUIDITY – Out of the 2000+ stocks on the Aussie market, only about 400 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.
  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.

21 Jan 2017 – Two new presentations added… back testing with TradeSim and BullCharts

How to make money in the markets? and not lose it?

Many investors struggle from time to time with trying to develop a sound investing plan and strategy. They want some decision criteria that will help them to make sound investing decisions.

bull_logoOne way to travel this journey utilising technical analysis for entry and exit decision making is to use good charting software (I use the Australian Bullcharts system), and to perform some back-testing of an intended strategy using software like TradeSim.

In October 2016 I led a discussion and software demonstration at the Australian BullCharts User Group Melbourne meeting. The two sets of slides from that session are available in the Presentations section of my Share Market Toolbox.

6 Oct 2016 – IPOs – are they worth it? or too much risk?

In 2013, with the hype around some high profile IPOs (Initial Public Offerings), I thought it was time to do some research to either confirm, or shatter, my views that IPOs in general are too dangerous for the average investor. So, I did some research and put up a new web page in the public area of my Share Market Toolbox on this very topic.

The bottom line conclusion from my research was that in general, the chances of the average retail investor making on an IPO are not that good.

Anyway, I hadn’t updated that web page with the latest information for a while, so it is now done.The web page includes notes about my research, and price charts of several key high profile IPOs in recent years. Of course, it does not include details for ALL IPOs as there have been too many.

See all the details here…
