13 Sept 2016 – Another article for the ASX Investor Update newsletter

I was invited to submit another article for publication in the monthly ASX Investor Update newsletter, which gets emailed by ASX to 200,000+ subscribers for free each month.

The article was published Tuesday this week (13 Sept). See details in my Share Market Toolbox, or see the official ASX newsletter on the ASX website.

Due to a word-count limit on published articles, I had to cut some significant chunks out of the submitted version. But the full version is available witih larger versions of the charts in my Toolbox. Past articles are also included there.

1 Sept 2016 – List of LIQUID STOCKS and WHICH STOCKS IN WHICH INDEX? are now completed for August

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.

Happy investing /trading

27 July 2016 – New web page – Simple applications for Technical Analysis

Many thanks to the folks at the Manningham U3A group, because after my last presentation there in June, one of the members suggested to me that there is not enough simple information out there about how to use Technical Analysis (T.A.).

There is a lot of detailed and somewhat technical information available, but for the investors who are learning about T.A., much of the information is just too complex or difficult to understand.

So, over the last couple of weeks I have been putting together a new web page in the public area of my Share Market Toolbox to address this.

See my new web page – T.A. – Simple practical applications.

If there is some more work to be done to address this, then please feel free to contact myself.

July 2016 – Monthly eNews focus – Price trends in multiple time frames

July 2016 – The March/April issue of the bi-monthly eNews update was a little late late (again) – apologies to Toolbox Members.

Price trends in multiple time framesOne of the important things to understand about price trends, and looking for an uptrend to follow (because it is reported that the trend is your friend) is that a price trend can exist within a trend, and the two trends can be different.

See the details in the eNews Archive.

22 June 2016 – Medium term investing in today’s awkward markets – a new presentation

For the Manningham U3A group* this month I prepared a new presentation based on key points from the recent Nimble Short Term Investing presentation and strategy. It explains why buyign stocks for the dividend can be dangerous. Some stocks return a huge dividend yield, but suffer from severe capital destruction – so it pays to be very careful.

You can see more details and the new set of slides on the Presentations page in my Share Market Toolbox.

* – I have been to the Manningham U3A quite a few times in the last few years to talk to the “Financial Health in Retirement” group (formerly known as the Stockmarket Group) on share market and investing topics. I must be doing a good job because they keep inviting me back.
