Stock Correlation is Jamming, Pounding Higher…Again By, D. R. Barton, Jr.

I’ve written about asset correlation multiple times in the past three years. And guess what. We need to chat about it again. This time we’re dropping back to just the correlation between stocks (spoiler alert for my next follow-up article: Correlations are high for lots of assets right now, including crypto). But for today, let’s just look at stocks. As you’re probably aware, one of the key thoughts that institutional money managers keep in the front of their minds is the diversity of a given portfolio. We could dig into …

Editor’s Note: Dr. Van Tharp’s content is timeless and our goal is to continue to share his material with our readers. Today’s feature is material from a past article. 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.

Double Bottom Déjà vu? Or…Just a Mirage? By, D.R. Barton, Jr.

Every single person who knows I am a market watcher has asked me the same question for the last two weeks. This past Monday (September 26th, 2022), I was asked at least three times as often.
