TSLA Swing Trade and Master Class (VIDEO) By, Ken Long

  This four minute video details Ken’s internal struggle between his beliefs about TSLA and what his system’s rules recently told him to do. Ken says, “You should tattoo into your consciousness the importance and limits of predictions and beliefs and rules and management. These are certainly tattooed into my consciousness. The video reinforces all of the Tharp Think principles I believe.”  

January 2020 Market Update Bull Quiet 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. If your beliefs are not similar to mine, however, then this information may not be useful to you. Thus, if you are inclined to go through some sort of intellectual …

Ken’s Corner – Case Study

  This is one example of a monthly “check-in” where students do the work to apply our principles to their trading and gather the evidence needed to make strategy-adjustment decisions. This exercise involves self-reflection, self-awareness, and self-mastery. “Lifelong learners, students of the market” do this on a regular basis to stay aligned with an ever-evolving market.   Hi Ken, A prosperous New Year to you and the Tortoise community! This year started well for me. I think I am beginning to get the real value of intraday techniques in my …

Coronavirus: Important but Not a Reason to Get Bearish By, D. R. Barton, Jr.

  In the spring of 2003, I was invited to visit John Martin, a close friend of mine and a good friend of the Van Tharp Institute. John and his family lived in Singapore, and at that point, the world was on the tail end of the SARS (Severe and Acute Respiratory Syndrome) outbreak. My round trip plane ticket cost about $700 and the wide-body jet from into Hong Kong was less than a quarter full. The SARS news had hit the airline and travel industries hard. Fast forward to …

Big Picture View of Forex and Futures Markets By, Gabriel Grammatidis

  Happy New Year and a good start to the trading year 2020! This 14-minute video has a Top-Down-Analysis for the year; outlining the big upcoming trends in the Forex Markets. Overall, we should see a continuation of EUR and AUD weaknesses against USD, CHF, JPY, and NZD strength. In particular, the important price level of par/1.0000 in EURUSD will act almost like a magnet to attract price there. I expect prices to develop increased momentum during this year and we might even see some economic chaos starting in the …

December 2019 System Quality Number® 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. …
