Paradigm Shifts Part I – Your Beliefs on Wealth By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

Editor's Note: This popular article was previously published in Tharp's Thoughts Weekly Newsletter. Without the proper mindset, the best financial strategies in the world are worthless. Many years ago, I taught an Infinite Wealth Workshop that covered a lot of financial strategies to attain wealth. Over the years, however, I have learned that abundance is an internal state and external wealth flows out of that internal state. In the version of the Infinite Wealth Workshop that I teach now, we focus much more on understanding the wealth mindset and working …

March 2021 System Quality Number® Report The SQN® Report By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

There are numerous ETFs that track everything from countries, commodities, currencies, and stock market indices to individual market sectors. ETFs provide a wonderfully easy way to discover what’s happening in the world markets. I apply an index-based version of my System Quality Number® (SQN®) score to measure the relative performance of numerous markets in a world model. The Market SQN score uses the daily percent change for input over a 100-day period. Typically, a Market SQN score over 1.47 is strongly bullish, and a score below -0.7 is very weak. …

I find the market update information useful for my trading, so I do the work each month and am happy to share that information with my readers.

Markets Still Don’t Flop from the Top by, D. R. Barton, Jr.

An object in motion tends to remain in motion until acted on by an outside force.--Simplified version of Newton’s First Law My Grandma Seymour was a gracious woman. A Godly and wise woman. A woman of exceptional beauty. People often mistook her as my Mom’s sister – much to Mom’s chagrin. Above all, she was the quintessential southern matriarch. She ruled our family not so much from a position of authority (which she had) but rather from a position of repeated wisdom and gentleness - thus garnering and maintaining everyone’s …

During the past few weeks, the media has been reporting loads of “How life has changed” reports commemorating the first anniversary of the initial pandemic lockdowns.

Plan-PREPARE-Execute-ASSESS By, Dr. Ken Long

I teach a 4-step process of “Plan-Prepare-Execute-Assess” in order to systematically and continuously improve my adaptation to the market and trade effectively. Plan: A top-down procedure to identify tradable targets in the time frame I have chosen, or which chooses itself. My criteria: targets are tradable symbols that have evidence to support the hypothesis that they are in a “critical state.” I define a critical state as a moment when there is a larger-than-normal probability of a larger-than-normal directional move in a shorter-than-normal time frame and where the amount and …
