Excellent Opportunity in BLOK…by the Numbers Monday, February 22nd by, Ken Long

  On Monday morning, Ken saw the huge opening gap (-8%) in BLOK. He then applied several of his standard trade concepts – Hybrid Frog, Minimum Manageable Risk Box (MMRB), SSC, Kata2, and a Sniper Exit to capture a nice move. BLOK’s price closed the gap and the whole trade was over by mid-morning as illustrated by the two charts below. Ken covers these standard trade concepts in his Hybrid Swing Trading Workshop which will be starting its next session in early April.    

Trading Visual Price Patterns is a Bit Like Hunting for Fish by, Gabriel Grammatidis

  Trading for visual price patterns is a bit like hunting for fish. Sometimes the small fish come close to the beach – and at other times, you need to go out a bit deeper into the waters to find bigger ones. If you consider the whole ocean as your hunting ground, then you don’t really need to fear that you will not find any fish. You might be unaware of the fish right now, you know that they are out there for you to capitalize on. Once you understand …

Psychology Patterns: Internal Conflicts by, RJ Hixson

  Have you ever thought or said something to the effect, “On one hand, I . . . while on the other hand, I . . .”? Has that kind of thinking ever affected your trading? If so (and it’s likely so), you have an experience of some internal conflict — which is entirely human. Different parts of you want different things and when two parts see something differently — as they often do — you wind up in conflict. Most typically, your logical mind takes control and makes a …

Update on Cryptoassets as of February 17th, 2021 By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

  Market Summary Last month, the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index was at 1414.37, following a low of 217.82 in early March. BTC had made a new high yesterday at $51,630.86. Today (February 17) and the index was at 2,295.61. That’s a huge gain for one month.   Let me put this into perspective. In late 2017, I said that cryptoassets were the biggest institution revolution since the Industrial Revolution and that they represented the investment of a lifetime. Institutions, however, were not ready or capable of participating in that revolution …

The Game Stops: This Time It’s…Well — Like Every Other Time by, D. R. Barton, Jr.

    We were told in 1999, that “this time, it’s different”. We were told…the internet was changing everything. And we were told that valuing companies with no earnings and small or no revenues was going to last forever. That madness of crowd’s mindset drove a whole index up 10x in a few short years:   And then it came back down to earth. For anyone who’s been trading or investing, you know that wasn’t the end of the story — the NASDAQ has been a pretty good (!) place …

How Long Does It Take To Become Profitable? by, Gabriel Grammatidis

  Over the last ten years or so, I have taught and coached several hundred traders through my workshops and coaching programs. It has been very interesting for me to observe different types of behaviors and varied results in these people. I started categorizing different learning styles of my students and I noticed several types or phases that I actually went through myself as a developing trader. For 2-3 years early on, I was a Window Shopper. Then after a short phase of being Stuck-in-Frustration, I started to Rule-Tweak other …

January 2021 System Quality Number® Report The SQN® Report by, Van K. Tharp

  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. …

January 2021 Market Update Bull Normal Market Type By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

  I always say that people do not trade the markets; they trade their beliefs about the markets. In that same way, I’d like to point out that these updates reflect my beliefs. 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. However, if your beliefs are not similar to mine, then this information may not be useful to you. Thus, if you are inclined to go through some sort of intellectual …
