Something Deceptively Simple May Be Holding You Back by, Van K. Tharp, Ph.D.

  One of my clients gave me a book by Carol Dweck called Theories of Self: Their Role in Motivation, Personality, and Development. In it, Dr. Dweck states: My work is developed around the idea that people develop beliefs that organize their world and give meaning to their experiences. These beliefs may be called meaning systems and different people create different meaning systems. Wow, I was blown away, I never thought I’d hear a psychologist talk about the importance of beliefs. Many years ago I became disillusioned with the professional …

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 …

Post-COVID – Investing In the Return to Normal by, D.R. Barton, Jr.

  I’m really relieved to see the first signs of the slowing of the coronavirus in Europe. In the U.S., confirmed cases and deaths from the virus are growing more slowly. Many science and medical experts say that the social distancing and other mitigation measures are starting to work. I believe, however, that the coronavirus pandemic and the “pause” we put on the economy will leave its marks. We will re-enter a different world post-virus. Some of what we took for granted about business, the economy, and human behavior have …

Same Trades, Different Views Improve Your Results with Positive Reversion by, Chuck Whitman of Reed$Trader

    Rarely do I see any discussion in the trading community about the impact of reversion on the profitability of trades. Many new traders are completely unaware of this concept and its impact on their trading.   Value, Price, and Reversion I spend a great deal of time educating my student traders about the major market participants: commercials, large speculators, small speculators and market makers. I want students to understand the different behaviors of different participants. Learning about these different behaviors often opens the eyes of my students helping …

March 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 …
