Is this A Catchable Rally or A Bear Trap? by, Chuck Whitman & Mark Boucher

  Using market internals* has a great advantage in that they force you to focus on what investors are doing rather than on what they are saying. Our short-term trigger point of the 70% down-volume on February 21 came just two days after the all-time highs on the S&P. In the following days, our Bear Market signal happened in the midst of five distribution days. Since that first warning day, the stock market had eight 90% down-days and three 80% down-days over the next eighteen trading days for the largest …

What Will Turn the Market Tide on COVID-19? By, D.R. Barton, Jr.

I believe great traders and investors need to have “strong opinions, loosely held”. Using all the best information and data available, you have to form an opinion to take a position or make the trade. Strong opinions help you have the confidence to pull the trigger. Yet, those opinions must be held loosely. This means that if the data change or the meaning behind the data changes, you must be able to change course. You must be able to close or reverse a trade when the original investing or trading …

Special Market Update on Panic Selling By Van K. Tharp, Ph.D.

I’ve been a coach for traders and investors since 1982 – almost 40 years – but I don’t remember anything like the panic selling of the last few weeks. Even though the coronavirus might not be much different than the flu, it has the ability to greatly damage the worldwide economy, especially cruise ship, hotel, and airline companies. For example, I think there’s a warning that U.S. seniors should not fly in airplanes right now. To show you my level of concern, however, let me list my upcoming itinerary: 1) …

January 2020 System Quality Number® 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 …
