The Trap – And How My Cat Got Caught by Gabriel Grammatidis

After some thinking, I decided to write the article today about thoughts that are occupying my mind most right now and relate them to trading the markets. I am a big cat lover. If they could trade – I believe cats would be natural-born great traders. They exhibit the mental state of great traders – a state of indifference coupled with alert-wakefulness. In addition, cats gravitate naturally toward a state of Acceptance or the Zero State. Unfortunately, my favorite cat, “Dolfi” – died yesterday suddenly in a disruptive event. Dolfi …

Hybrid Trading Workshop – Student Trades From Thursday, September 3

  Ken has a few trade samples from his Hybrid Trading course students – winners and losers included – from last Thursday when the upward bull move finally cracked. Thursday’s turn allowed for some effortless short-side exploitation intraday using standard work principles. The trades are excellent examples of what he calls “wu wei” or “effortless action” in actual practice. Ken believes the first day of reversal to a very strong trend should always feel like the easiest trade using hybrid frog techniques.             He also …

August 2020 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 a 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. …

Covid Food Supply Chain Follow-Up: As Predicted – No Widespread Food Shortages By, D.R. Barton, Jr.

  Barely a month into the COVID pandemic and lockdowns, we had already experienced bare shelves at the grocery store back in early April. First, stores ran out of toilet paper and disinfectant wipes. Then stores ran out of canned foods and rice. Then in mid-April, headlines started talking about longer-lasting “food shortages.” Meat processing plants across the country were closing down as the cramped work spaces sparked COVID outbreaks. Combine those headlines with the occasional empty grocery store shelf and people started to get scared – which of course …

Update on Cryptoassets as of August 16th, 2020 by, Van K. Tharp, PhD

  Market Summary The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index closed at 572.6 last Friday after closing at 378.28 last month. Its low was 217.82 in early March. The market grew a lot last month and is close to the 2019 highs but this time all cryptos are really moving. Since the BTC halving in early May 2020, mining a single BTC now costs between $12,000 to $14,000 which means the current market price is about to break even for the miners. This is why we are only guaranteeing GBTC on the …
