    Hi,
    My name is Byron and I currently work overseas in a tax-free industry.
    I'm looking for ways to increase my share portfolio and get better returns from it.
    I have 2 investment properties in Newcastle which are both currently rented, although on separate mortgages. Is this bad/ more expensive? Thinking about a commercial property next (?)
    I have done some share trading before I left Australia and would like to get back into it, starting with choosing a charting program.
    Anyone use MarketMaster?

    Thank you, and have a nice day!

    Unless you have experiance with investing directly into shares, I would suggest either getting a basket of good blue-chip shares, ie banks, wollies, bhp etc, or managed funds..

    Rene Rivkin once said 'I have never met a rich chartest'. Although charting can help you with timing to get into a investment, really using it as your sole way of making a decision is like driving a car and only looking into the rear view mirror.

    I actually did use market master years ago.. I would suggest looking at comsec professional trader.. its free if you place a certain amount of trades per month.. and from what I recall, it does most of what MM does as well..
