Since Bloomberg only caters to institutional clients, an index of this nature was one of the first steps toward widespread institutional involvement. The index composition changes regularly but we show the graph every month because so many institutional investors follow it. This is the five-year chart for the index: The index started in May 2018 at 1,000, reached a peak in May 2021 of 3,504, and then dropped significantly until June …

Despite the short-term weather, my backyard is starting to come alive. I found two weeds growing in a mulch bed and had to look them up to see what they were before pulling them. One I found was a common chickweed. It has shallow roots …

November 2021 System Quality Number® Report The SQN® Report By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

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. …
