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 …

The COVID Surge Is Real –Why Is the Market Pushing Up? By, D.R. Barton, Jr.

  Over the last two to three weeks, new Coronavirus cases in America have gone up over 80%, mainly in the South and West. California, the first state in the US to lock down originally, reported a new daily record for the state of 9,897 cases on Tuesday. Just under half of those new cases came from Los Angeles County and no, this isn’t just because of more testing. The number of Californians hospitalized because of COVID-19 has almost doubled in just two weeks.   Texas is arguably fairing worse. …

April 2020 System Quality Number® Report The SQN® Report by Van K. Tharp, Ph.D.

  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. …

April 2020 Market Update – Bear Volatile Market Type by Van K. Tharp, PhD

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.

Trade Through “Mindfulness” By Van K. Tharp, PhD

  What would happen if you could just pay attention to what the market is doing right now? You’d be totally in the present with no preconceived ideas or biases to influence you. If you did that, your trading probably would accelerate to a new level. You can trade that way if you practice “mindfulness.” Short-term reactions to news tend to be large in bear markets; however, if you just watch what is going on, it is obvious. Most people have trouble with this. They can’t watch what is going …

Covid-19 & Food Supply Chain: Why You Don’t Have to Worry About Food Shortages by, D.R.Barton, Jr.

  Over a month ago, we saw the first and the most visible sign of the pandemic in our daily lives – bare shelves in the grocery store. First to vanish was toilet paper, then canned & frozen foods, then rice. Amid these rolling shortages, we’ve rightly come to understand that farmers, truck drivers, and grocery store employees are indeed “essential workers.” My home state of Delaware was one of the last three in the country to register a confirmed COVID-19 case and on March 22nd, our governor issued a …
