Stock Markets About to Go “Vertical” Plus a Cryptocurrency Update (VIDEO) by, Gabriel Grammatidis

  I) US Stock Market: US Equities About to Go “Vertical.” A vertical market ideally develops out of a well-established strong & smooth that starts a final exhaustion trend move. This leads prices to go “vertical” within a short period of time. Gabriel has a strong sense that this is occurring right now, based on a Futures price pattern.

It’s Scary How Well the Halloween Indicator Keeps Working… by, D.R. Barton, Jr.

Normally at Halloween, the only madness that I have to put up with is an incomprehensible number of Halloween costume shops that open up for six weeks in every vacant storefront. They apparently do quite well because, in my neck of the woods, they’re stinkin’ everywhere. But here’s something that is actually much more useful for the Halloween season… For more than a decade I’ve written columns for Van and his team in the Tharp’s Thoughts newsletter.

The Trap – And How My Cat Got Caught by Gabriel Grammatidis

After some thinking, I decided to write the article today about thoughts that are occupying my mind most right now and relate them to trading the markets. I am a big cat lover. If they could trade – I believe cats would be natural-born great traders. They exhibit the mental state of great traders – a state of indifference coupled with alert-wakefulness. In addition, cats gravitate naturally toward a state of Acceptance or the Zero State. Unfortunately, my favorite cat, “Dolfi” – died yesterday suddenly in a disruptive event. Dolfi …

Understanding the Roles of Market Participants By, Chuck Whitman and Van Tharp

Editors note: Van and Chuck recently had a lively conversation about market structure. This article is a transcript of sections of this conversation. Chuck: Every market we trade has a legitimate business purpose and commercial firms legitimately use that market to manage their business. Without that, the market does not work. I believe that traders benefit by understanding this concept – that markets play an important business purpose. When you ask a lot of people about trading, they’ll say trading is a form of gambling. Look at the definition of …

  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.
