System Quality Number

SQN Score Basics Course I and II


Have you ever wondered what Dr. Tharp is talking about when he mentions the System Quality Number score or SQN score? Because itís a little complicated and because itís protected by a trademark, he only teaches that formula in his workshops, in the Systems Development home study course, and in his book, The Definitive Guide to Position Sizing Strategies. But, what if you just wanted to learn about the SQN score and nothing else? Then these courses are for you.

If you want to learn simply how to calculate your systems SQN score, just get Course I. If you want to understand the SQN score at deeper level and have examples with data, then also get Course II.

As most of our clients who learn about SQN then also want to learn a lot more about position sizing strategies, we have made it easy to do with the SQN Score Basics Courses.


However, there is no substitution for the extensive amount of information contained in The Definitive Guide to Position Sizing Strategies and the material in Course 1 and Course 2 are abbreviated excerpts from the guide.
