Key information
for new or prospective User Group members

What do we do?

At our User Group meetings we talk about BullCharts software, and trading styles, techniques and situations. And we try to talk about the state of the market as well (if time permits)!

When do we meet in 2014? 

In 2014 the Melbourne face-to-face meetings are usually the third Wednesday of each month except December. See the User Group flyer for a list of future meeting dates (if the old document is displayed, you might need to "Refresh" your browser window). The webinar meetings are usually one week later.
See the current schedule of User Group webinar events.

Do you have BullCharts already?

You don't have to be a BullCharts user to attend. You are quite welcome to come along to just view the product and see how it works.

How to Trial BullCharts?

It is possible to trial BullCharts for 2 weeks for free. No obligation. Full version of the software. Trial includes End of Day data downloads for two weeks. See details here.

Are you an investor or trader?

It doesn't matter. Many of our user group "members" are only part-time traders or investors. Or they are just starting out and still learning about it all.

Fees or obligations?

Being a user group "member" carries no obligation - we don't charge fees, there is no commitment. Perhaps that is why there are lots of people who are interested in the meetings.

How big is the meeting?

The Melbourne meeting regularly has between 15 and 25 at meetings, so it is a good number for round table discussion, and the Webinar meetings tend to have about 5 people.

User Group - Latest UPDATE

January 2014 - PLEASE NOTE: The Melbourne venue (Leighoak Hotel) has been charging a room-hire fee since late 2010. We did consider a venue change, but the BullCharts company in Sydney (BullSystems / Weblink) have offered to sponsor this cost. And they have agreed to do so again for 2014. So we are currently staying at this venue.

The Australian BullCharts User Group (Melbourne chapter) has been running since July 2006, with 12 meetings each year - the market does not stop over Christmas, so we don't stop either.

More than 80 people have registered interest, and we often have about 20 regulars at the monthly meetings. This is a nice comfortable number for round table discussions, plus questions and answers. A week after the meetings we have the "Remote Users" webinar session.

The meeting discussion/agenda typically includes things like:

  1. “Favourite Indicator” presentation and discussion. A bit of theory about a technical analysis indicator, and how to use it, and the optional settings in BullCharts to customise the indicator. Past indicator topics include: RSI, Bollinger Bands, MACD, Stop Loss.
  2. Trading styles, attitudes and strategies (BullCharts includes more than 30 built-in “Author Strategies”).
  3. Using BullCharts for Scans (for stock selection).
  4. General discussion on technical analysis.
  5. Recent trading successes (“hot stocks”? and how did we find it?).
  6. Real live BullCharts demonstrations, including useful tips, on things like BullCharts Toolbars and Toolbar Buttons.

Did you know?

BullCharts charting software is a tool to help you analyse price charts. To be able to use it effectively you do need to know something about the subject of Technical Analysis.
 
Robert's Share Market Toolbox includes a variety of information on this subject, including:
Or you can see the Toolbox Gateway for a detailed list of the Toolbox contents.

ATAAMore information about Technical Analysis is available from the ATAA (Australian Technical Analysts Association) - a not-for-profit association run by members for members. (Robert is a Victorian Chapter Committee member, and a National Director).
