31 Jan 2019 – Three new presentations from U3A Nunawading Summer School

I attended the U3A Nunawading Summer School in mid-January to present three separate 2-hour sessions: “Share Market 101”, “Price Charts – Unlocking the Secrets”, and “Trend Trading ASX Shares”. The sessions were well attended (20 to 30 people in each one).

The handout notes, and the slides, and the special “Speaker Notes” are now available for each of these sessions, with one exception – the Speaker Notes for the Share Market 101 session, which will be available very soon.

See more details and download the handout and slides from the presentations page in Brainy’s  Share Market Toolbox here.

7 Jan 2019 – List of LIQUID STOCKS and WHICH STOCKS IN WHICH INDEX? are now completed for December

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 500 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

2 Nov 2018 – Updated BULL / BEAR markets pages in Toolbox

In my Share Market Toolbox I have two web pages that describe the duration and extent of the bull markets, market corrections and bear markets on the Australian Share market since 1988. The Australian market fell into a market correction in October 2018, and so I have updated those web pages with the latest details.

My Share Market Toolbox subscribers can see the Bull Market details here, and the Bear Market details here.

For non-subscribers, I have not yet fnished updating the details yet.

15 Oct 2018 – New presentation ready: “Trading in Practise – Risk management, initial stop loss, optimum position size”

The set of presentation slides from the hands-on workshop session in the October 2018 Melbourne ATAA chapter meeting are now available.

This set of slides (updated from the earlier presentations in 2016 and prior) has been used to lead and facilitate a hands-on workshop discussion, utilising the Trading Work Sheet handout document. The session covers the following topics:

  • Trade planning – using a Trading Work Sheet.
  • Specifying portfolio and risk management metrics.
  • Choosing a Stop Loss, and recording it.
  • Looking for a Target Price, and hence determining the
    Reward to Risk ratio (the inverse of the Risk-Reward Ratio)
  • Calculating Optimum Position Size, using the “2 Percent Rule”.
  • Setting Trailing Stops.

This session has now been presented in several forums including: ATAA Melbourne (Jan 2016), BullCharts User Group (2012), ATAA (2015, 2016), and VectorVest Melb User Group (2016).

See more details and download the handout and slides from the presentations page in Brainy’s  Share Market Toolbox here.
