Protecting Your Capital (part 2)
|eNews + eBook Articles
||#53 - June 2013
This month's Share Market eNews
is going to all of my subscribing Share
Members as normal, and to the non-Members who
have expressed an interest in receiving it.
Last month I included some very useful
information touching on strategies for profit and capital protection.
This was the same subject theme as this year's ATAA
held only a week ago in Sydney
(for which yours truly was the responsible Conference Director). I
picked up a few tips on this subject at the conference which are mostly
to do with utilising the standard price chart features including:
support and resistance levels, trend lines, chart patterns, and the
infamous Stop Loss. Being able to quickly spot a
potential threat to our investment capital is of paramount importance
to protecting it. Please

longer wants to receive this material on a regular basis can simply

is for general education only, and is not advice of any sort.
About the eNews
Just a short note to the recently new
Toolbox Members:- These share market eNews emails
always go to Toolbox Members (a part of the Toolbox service), and to
the people who have registered to receive occasional information about
the Share Market. This is a monthly email with some pointers
and tips on focused topics - see a quick intro to the eNews emails
often include references to specific eBook Articles
in my Share Market Toolbox
as well as key web pages in the free area of the Toolbox (eg. on the
extensive Share Market web page
I have been writing the eBook Articles since October 2008 - that's more
than four years, and these eNews emails help you to navigate to related
and useful information each month.

Part 2 - Profit and
This month's eNews email continues the
subject theme of last month's eNews which
introduced the topics of money and risk management, managing investment
position sizes, utilising a Stop Loss, and gauging market mood

The first thing I should say is that
technical analysis includes some very useful tools that can help us
immensely with the protection of our investment capital and profits.
So, for any of the
technical analysis doubters, I have taken some of the information from
the recent ATAA conference and posted a new web page - Technical Analysis - The
of the most useful ways to protect our investment capital, when
invested in a share market position, is to use some clever tools to
alert us when a specific price level is breached. This might be a Stop
Loss that we have in mind, making it very important to find out quickly
and to action a sell order if that is the action recorded in our
investing plan. The new eBook Article on Capital Protection (see below)
provides some comment on the options, while the other two eBooks
mentioned below describe how to use some of the available tools to
raise the alert. This
makes reference to broker's tools and the BullCharts charting

Recent monthly focus topics
starting this new format for the monthly eNews email
in December 2010, I have accumulated many topic-specific discussions.
Rather than list them all here (as I had been doing), it is best to
refer to the latest detailed list in the eNews email archive
in the Toolbox.
is always very happy to receive feedback about the Toolbox, and the
articles and weapons therein.
Please feel free to contact Robert by email or phone.
Part 2 - Strategies for
Profit and Capital Protection
For this month's eNews focus I have updated
one eBook (PDF) Article and written two new ones:
- Article ST-3200,
- A new 4-page publicly available (free) eBook article that provides a
good overview of the subject, with some clues about what to look out
- Article BC-40-300,
"Alerts and the Alert
Manager" - An updated version of an earlier
eBook Article now 8 pages long, describing how to use the BullCharts
charting software Alert Manager tool to set price alerts. The price
alert is intended to raise an alert when a specific price level is
reached, or in the case of a sloping alert line (as in a trend line),
when the trend line is broken (non-members can see the free page 1).
- Article BC-40-310,
"Alert settings and
strategy" - A new 7 page eBook Article with
price charts and examples to show how to flag price breakouts, trend
line breaks, and triggered Stop Losses (non-members can see the free page 1).
Just as a reminder, last month's material on
this topic included the following:
forget to see the updated Table of Contents pages for all articles (see
links in the side-bar at right).
Management web page - A new web page to provide a publicly
available introduction to the topic.
and Money Management" -
A publicly available updated 5-page eBook article that provides an
introduction to the topic of risk and money management, and contains

There are now a
total of 133 Articles in this collection of eBook Articles - a whopping
total of 590 pages of information! You can see the Table of Contents for all eBook Articles here
(recently new or updated ones are highlighted), and the Master Toolbox Index here
eBook (PDF) Articles
Since October 2008 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 550 pages of material in more
than 125 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 required. For more
information please see:
Article front pages
For any new readers of my Toolbox eBook
Articles, there are some useful introductory Articles including an Introduction
and an Overview Article
for each of the three subject areas. You can see them here:

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.
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
happy investing or trading,
