pointers and tips on focused topics. They often include references to
specific eBook Articles
in the Toolbox, as well as key web pages in the free area of the
Toolbox. I have been writing these eBook Articles since October 2008 -
that's now 3 whole years! You can see a quick summary about the eBook Articles here

This month's focus:
Risk and Money Management
We recently had a
brief look at the topic of risk management, and in particular the
usefulness of optimising position size using a Position Size Calculator.
You can see that material in the archive - Oct 2011
months' focus is very closely related; but contains both a higher level
overview and introduction to the topic, as well as some specific detail
about "The 2% Rule" for percent-risk position sizing. See the details

Risk management eBook Articles
This month I have written two new eBook (PDF) Articles to complement some existing ones on the topic of risk management:
- ST-4000 "Risk Management"
- This new 4-page Article is an introduction to the topic of Risk and
Money Management. It explains some of the adverse outcomes that can
easily occur, and some of the steps we can take to address the risks. It
is free to everyone.
- ST-4100 "The 2 Percent Rule"
- This new 4-page Article provides some more details about the "2
Percent Rule" model to help with determining optimum position size. It
is referred to in the Position Size Calculator spreadsheet that we
looked at in last month's monthly eNews email.
The free page 1 version for non-members is here.
There are now a total of 109 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a total of 465 pages of information!
You can see the Master List of all Articles here (recently new or updated ones are highlighted), and the Detailed Topic Index here.
forget to see the updated Table of Contents pages for the Share Trading
articles (see links in the side-bar at right).
eBook (PDF) Articles - Summary
Over the last three years I have accumulated quite a collection of eBook (PDF) Articles
on three subject areas - Share Trading/Investing, Technical Analysis
and BullCharts software (actually more than 450 pages of material
in more than 100 articles). These Articles are invaluable for both new
and experienced investors and traders. I am now writing brief monthly
notes in this eNews email to highlight specific Articles on targeted
topics. I am also writing new Articles and updating existing ones as

Article front pages
As of early January 2011 with the change in publishing approach for 2011, I significantly revised the Introduction Article and the Overview Article for each of the three subject areas. You can see them here:

if you have some sort of problem with accessing the Toolbox and any of
these Articles? Or maybe the Username and Password doesn't work. If
there is any problem at all, simply contact me by email or phone. The
best email address for this is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Occasionally emails disappear - the system thinks they are spam, or the
ISP might think they are spam. If I don't reply within a day or so,
please contact me by other email address or phone
There is nothing secret in this
email, so feel free to forward it to someone if you think they might
benefit from the information, or from being a Toolbox Member. The
easiest way to do this is to use the "Forward Email" link at the bottom.
am also confident that my Toolbox Members won't be sharing their
username and password with non-members. It is not fair that I spend all
this time preparing the materials, and then my Toolbox Members pay money
to have legitimate access, only to let some people pay nothing to read
and view the details.
Please feel free to email
an individual Article to others as a sample; but if they want online
access to all the materials, it is pretty cheap, so they should
subscribe as a Toolbox Member. There is information about Toolbox Membership in the Quick Links section at right.
Happy to receive feedback, or suggestions for new content or improvements.
Until next month,
happy investing or trading,
