Welcome to the Home page of Alan Hull, share trader, presenter and best selling author of Active Investing, Invest My Way and Trade My Way...all published by Wrightbooks.

Alan's weekly newsletters provide traders and investors with a complete solution for the Australian Stockmarket. From managing your own Blue Chip growth and income portfolios to short term breakout trading...you'll find a solution here.

And now Alan can also provide you with a managed account service that gives you access to world equity markets.

TWO NEW MANAGED ACCOUNT SERVICES!!!

Invest for income with reduced capital risk...

Right now our four big Banks are trading at very high multiples and so part or even all of their dividends are in danger of being swallowed up by a fall in their share prices. And that's why I've created my new actively managed income strategy, so investors can enjoy a source of income with reduced exposure to capital risk.

Hedging balances out capital gains and losses

Many Australian investors own shares for income but are exposed to potential capital losses as a result. My strategy uses the ASX SPI 200 futures contract to offset share price movements. So whilst there will still be some short term volatility as this is an indirect hedge, share prices are counterbalanced by short selling the ASX SPI 200.

Capture higher yields when the Stockmarket falls

And whenever the Stockmarket suffers a significant fall, the profit you make in your hedging account can then be converted back to shares at a lower price. So you'll actually be hoping that share prices take a tumble because whenever they do, you will be able to capture higher yields.

The minimal capital requirement varies

The minimum capital requirement depends on the current value of the ASX SPI 200 futures contract and therefore is constantly changing. However, whilst the ASX200 index remains in the vicinity of 5,000 points the minimum capital requirement will typically be in the range of $130,000 to $150,000.

Suitable for use in a Self Managed Superannuation Fund

The management strategy is low risk across a medium to long term timeframe (3 to 5 years), although capital can be withdrawn at any time. Investors should also be aware that capital growth will be reduced as well as capital losses but the investment manager will actively manage the hedge to prevent this as much as possible.

Indicative yield and fees

Based on an investment of $500,000 in late 2013, the net yield (including all fees and charges) would be approximately 5.4%. However a minimum investment of $150,000 would have a lower net yield of approximately 4.7%, due to fixed costs. A complete break down of all the fees and charges is provided in the product disclosure statement. And please note that as this strategy has the ability to capture future yields, these are starting yields only.

You can now invest in Stockmarkets around the world...

With Alan providing the strategy and risk management you can now invest with complete confidence in global Stockmarkets, via their indexes. Alan will direct the management of your investment while Avestra Capital will do all the administration.

Profit when markets go up and profit when they go down

Stockmarkets go up and they also inevitably go down. So it gives us a huge advantage as investors if we can make money in both rising markets and falling markets.

Suitable for use in a Self Managed Superannuation Fund

The management strategy is low to medium risk, across a medium term timeframe.

The minimal capital requirement is just $30,000

This amount is as low as possible so investing with Alan is as accessible as possible.

Pay only a fixed administration fee

It's completely unfair if two investors who receive the same administration services have to pay different fees just because one has more money invested than the other.

Pay a 100% performance based management fee

It's also completely unfair that an investment advisor should get paid when they don't make their investors any money. So we've designed a completely fair fee structure.

The Blue Chip Report

To create and preserve real wealth over the longer term you have to know what investment to be in at what time. Alan's weekly Blue Chip Report provides you with a road map that puts you in the right investment at the right time. See Alan's Melbourne ASX Lunchtime lecture from March 2013 at :

Think of it as satellite navigation for the Australian Stockmarket. Alan advised all his subscribers to sell their shares in August 2007 and he stayed 100% in cash until July 2009...completely avoiding the 2008 correction

All Ords

This is our premium newsletter service and provides traders and investors with market timing recommendations, two growth portfolio strategies and income portfolio recommendations. Blue Chip Report subscribers receive a complimentary subscription to the ActVest Newsletter service (see further details below) and have direct one-on-one access to Alan via e-mail and phone.

The weekly Blue Chip Report provides all the market information you need to execute Alan's Active Fund Management strategy. It's extremely simple to use and is the ideal solution for anyone who has a very busy lifestyle but still wants to manage their own growth portfolio. Most of the hard work is done for you so implementing the strategy takes no more than 10 minutes per week.

The Active Investing Newsletter

The weekly ActVest newsletter provides all the information and charts needed to implement Alan's Active Investing strategy. It is a very low cost solution to trading the Australian Stock Market and also includes educational articles by Alan and other well known authors and share traders.

Active Investing is a Blue Chip share trading strategy for those who want to be more hands-on and perform their own chart interpretation. It combines fundamental and technical analysis by using charts to 'Test and Measure' the affect a Company's financial status has on share price movements. This simple process can turbocharge the performance of under-performing Blue Chip share portfolios.

The Active Trading Newsletter

The ActTrade newsletter is for aggressive traders who want to trade the Australian Stockmarket on a day-to-day basis. Largely derived from Alan's very popular and long established Active Investing strategy, his Active Trading strategy uses the same indicator set which has been specially retuned to deal with very fast trending shares.

The Active Trading strategy is the ultimate 'Trend Trading' system with 4 stage filtering and is applied to the entire Australian Stockmarket...not just Blue Chip shares. It utilises sector analysis in place of the Active Investing strategy's fundamental analysis and puts you in touch with the hottest stocks in the hottest sectors.

The Breakout Trading Newsletter

Breakout trading is essentially momentum trading following a breakout from a point of agreement. The key feature of this style of trading is that breakouts can occur regardless of market conditions (rising, falling or sideways) making this an 'All Terrain' type trading solution. The system uses a weekly time frame that helps to iron out some of the daily volatility and shows opportunities for both long and short trading.

The Newsletter will provide you with all the necessary charts and data so you can implement the strategy in less than an hour a week!

*As this is a medium risk, short term strategy, it is best used as part of an overall investment plan that incorporates longer term strategies like Active Investing or Active Fund Management.
