Top 10 Again for FinancialCyclesWeekly.com

We’re in the Top 10 again.

Our market timing has consistently been quite accurate.

That’s been going on for a number of years.

Our regular subscribers at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com can attest to that.

So can Timer Digest.

Tim Bost Cover Timer Digest Top 10
The market service at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com and editor Tim Bost have been the subjects of special features in Timer Digest several times in recent years, and consistently rank in that publication’s Top 10 lists of market timers.

Timer Digest ranks forecasters and market timers from across the spectrum.

It tracks over 100 separate services.

That includes fundamental analysts.

It includes technical analysts.

It even includes folks like me – astrologers who use planetary cycles to time the markets.

That’s a broad mix.

But most of all, the Timer Digest listings feature many well-known experts.

They’re the cream of the crop.

So it’s a particular honor to get recognition in this prestigious publication.

Multiple Top 10 Lists

But Timer Digest doesn’t just pick winning forecasters and timing services.

They break their listings down into four categories.

First there are the Stock Market Timers. Those rankings are based on performance in forecasting the stock market during the last year, the last six months, and the last three months.

There’s a Top 10 list for each of those time frames.

Next there are the Gold Timers. That listing includes the Top 5 forecasters for the yellow metal.

The Bond Timers also get their own Top 5 list.

And finally there’s the listing of Long-Term Stock Market Timers. It features a ranking of the Top 10 market forecasters looking at mega-trends, the long-wave cycles that move the markets over many years.

Where We Show Up

We focus primarily on the stock market here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com. And because we pay a lot of attention to outer-planet cycles and transneptunians, we provide a long-term perspective as we as comments on more immediate market moves.

That’s what has earned us recognition in the Long-Term Stock Market Timing category at Timer Digest. We’ve had a place on that Top 10 for over five years now.

Needless to say, we don’t show up in the rankings for Gold or Bond timing at all.

But our work has also merited a place in the Top 10 list for current Stock Market Timers on occasion as well.

In fact, in 2017 we ended up in a tie for first place in the rankings, so we shared in the recognition as Timer of the Year.

Current Rankings

My outlook for 2020 as a whole was included in the December 16, 2019 issue of Timer Digest (the annual forecast issue). As usual, we were ranked in the Top 10 Long-Term Timers. But we got an extra honor – the Number 10 ranking on the overall Top 10 list, based on forecasting performance from December 13, 2018 through December 13, 2019.

By the time the next issue of Timer Digest arrived on January 2, we had moved up to the Number 8 spot on that list. Running from December 31, 2018 through December 31, 2019, it recorded the best performers for the entire calendar year.

And then earlier this week, we got the most recent issue of the magazine, published on January 20, 2020. We’re now at Number 6 on the list of Top 10 Timers for the year, from January 17, 2019 through January 17, 2020.

And that’s not all.

Also in the January 20 issue, we popped in at Number 10 in the list of the top market timers for the past six months, from July 17, 2019 through January 17, 2020.

Does it feel good to get this kind of recognition for our work?

Of course it does!

But here’s the strange part.

As much as I enjoy the honors, I’m personally really not terribly competitive.

I’m not striving to beat anybody else. I’m not pushing to be Number 1.

What really pleases me is the fact that financial astrologers and astro-traders consistently find their way into the top rankings at Timer Digest. That not only includes me, but also friends and colleagues like Bill Meridian, Arch Crawford, Barry Rosen, and Manfred Zimmel.

Together, we’re advancing an important aggregate notion: if you want to succeed in the markets, it really pays to have the astro-trading advantage.

I think that’s something to be proud of!

Celebrating the Solar Eclipse Book on Amazon

Last night Patty and I got together with Jim Cummins and his wife Joyce to share an evening of food and fun. The Florida weather here had actually gotten cool enough (down to the high 70’s I think) to make it comfortable enough to sit outside on the terrace for dinner, where we could check out the river and watch the traffic going by on the bridge as we enjoyed our conversation.

The reason for the celebration was two-fold – yesterday morning our first shipment of the new paper-bound edition of our book on “The Solar Eclipse of October 2014: Its Impact on the Markets” had arrived, and it was the first opportunity that Jim and I as co-authors had to get our hands on the physical evidence of the months of work we had put into the project.

And on top of that, I had just gotten confirmation yesterday that “The Solar Eclipse of October 2014: Its Impact on the Markets” is now available for purchase at Amazon.com – just in time for the actual eclipse itself, which is coming up on Thursday!

Although he’s written for magazines and newspapers for many years and is a regular contributor of in-depth articles on geopolitical astrology at our FinancialCyclesWeekly.com website, this new book marks Jim’s debut as a published book author. That made last night extra special, and I was truly pleased that all four of us were able to share the time together.

Unanswered Questions as the Planets Impact Stock Market Trading Movements

Wow!

I always enjoy the opportunity to chat with Michael Yorba when he invites me to be a guest on his Traders Network radio show– we discuss the upcoming prospects for stock market trading, and he does a really great job of asking questions that bring the planetary connections with market movements into an understandable perspective.

But during our time on the air together just before the closing bell on Wall Street yesterday, the conversation was not only lively– it took us into a lot of interrelated topics that ultimately provided a great overview of the big-picture situation in the markets today.

As Michael put it during the interview, “A lot of people are yawning at the markets now, but I’m not so sure that this is one of those yawning moments. It could be the start of something big.”

We touched on the impact of Mercury and Neptune on current conditions in stock market trading, on crude oil and precious metals, on the geopolitical troubles that have been brewing (and which have been described so incisively by our friend and colleague Jim Cummins in his articles for FinancialCyclesWeekly.com), on the prospects for increasing market volatility as we look at the VIX during the coming weeks, and a whole lot more.

In fact, we actually ran out of time during the interview, and Michael had to sign off with an unanswered question still dangling– about today’s potent combination of Friday the 13th and the Full Moon.

I’ll be putting up a new blog post on that subject within the next couple of hours, so be sure to check back then (or Subscribe To This Blog to get email notifications whenever a new post is added).

In the meantime, here’s the recording of yesterday’s interview on the Traders Network show:

What Really Works in Stock Market Trading with Astrology – Consistent Astro-Trading Results

We call it the Astro-Trading Advantage.

It’s the powerful edge you get as a trader when you combine the tools of technical analysis and solid fundamental perspectives with the unique insights provided by a connection with planetary cycles.

It’s what really works when you apply astrology to stock market trading.

Using the techniques of astrology in a consistent trading plan has produced annual returns that have out-performed the major market averages in stock market trading year after year after year.
Using the techniques of astrology in a consistent trading plan has produced annual returns that have out-performed the major market averages in stock market trading year after year after year.

It’s also what has empowered us to get such consistently profitable trading results with our Model Portfolio at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com.

And it’s the focus of the day-long intensive I’ll be presenting next Sunday, May 18, in Miami.

We’ll have an intimate group gathering for an up-close-and-personal look at what goes on behind the scenes as we prepare a weekly market analysis, fine-tune high-potential stock selections, and work out the details of specific trading strategies, including trade entry times and initial stop-loss levels.

We’ll not only discuss the concepts involved, we’ll also put them to practical use as the group refines the trading plan that will be shared later that evening with our inner circle group of Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com.

This is unlike any other astro-trading workshop you’ve ever attended, and if you’re in the Miami area next Sunday (or if you can get there!) it’s definitely an experience that you won’t want to miss.

To get connected with the event, please RSVP to Lynne Hyde at 305-759-2202 (or email her at lynhyde@bellsouth.net) — the workshop will be held at her home, and she’ll be glad to provide you with directions.

Lynne’s home is a great location, by the way. For more information, see the blog post from earlier today at: http://marketastrologer.realbusinessresults.com/great-location-sunday-astro-trading-intensive/

Great Questions About The Solar Eclipse

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael Yorba for a number of years now, initially when he first got started with his “Commodity Classics” TV show (he was a pioneer in online broadcasting, back in the pre-Neflix days when there was still net neutrality and there was barely enough bandwidth to get a signal through), and more recently as a regular commentator on his Traders Network radio show, which is broadcast live KFXR-1190 AM radio in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas and streamed to listeners around the world via the internet.

One of the great things about Michael is that he’s a trader himself, so he really knows what he’s talking about when he discusses the markets on the radio.

He’s also worked hard to become knowledgeable about astro-trading.

When Michael Yorba and I first started working together, he didn’t know anything at all about planetary influences in the markets. But he got a copy of one of the early editions of The Basic Stock Market Astrology Home Study Course from me, and diligently worked through all the lessons. He’s considerably expanded his astro-trading expertise since then.

That’s why it was no surprise to me during our interview time on his Traders Network show yesterday, when he asked me some probing, to-the-point questions about the impact of the big solar eclipse we’ve got coming up next Tuesday.

He had me on for two segments of the program, so we had plenty of time to get into depth about the time and location of the eclipse, the connections it has with current geopolitical strife, the effects we’re expecting in the markets, our trading philosophy here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, the new monograph on The Solar Eclipse of April 2014: Its Impact on the Markets, and a whole lot more.

Along the way, we even got in some conversation about Apple Computer (AAPL) and the S&P 500, referring to charts that I had posted on his social network page as well as on this blog. To take a look at them now, just CLICK HERE.

The Astro-Trading Community Is Growing

It’s always great to see the expanding interest in astro-trading– based on the emails I’ve been getting and on the number of visitors to FinancialCyclesWeekly.com and TimBost.com as well as to this blog, I can tell that there’s a growing engagement, both from active traders and from newbies who are just considering adding the astro-trading advantage to their participation in the markets.

But what’s been most surprising to me recently was seeing the annual report on traffic to this blog during 2013.

We had over 24,000 visitors during the year, which was actually a pretty significant number, since there was essentially no action on this blog at all during the last three months of the year, while I was recuperating from heart surgery.

It was also interesting to see how widespread the readership for this blog has become geographically, with 114 countries represented. Most of the readers came from the U.S., but the U.K. and India were also strongly represented.

An Amazing Amount of Material

For the past few weeks I’ve been putting a lot of extra energy into getting the new Financial Cycles Weekly website up and running. That means I’ve been posting materials from the archives, working with the website designers and technical people, and focusing on everything I can find that will help make this new membership site grow into something genuinely useful and ultimately full of over-the-top surprises.

This is truly a labor of love. In the first place that means I genuinely love doing this work, not just because I love all the wonderful insights and rewards that come through financial astrology, but also because I love the process of presenting helpful information in new, stimulating ways. In fact, I love doing this kind of thing so much that it really doesn’t seem like work at all, and I’ve long ago stopped counting how many hours I’m investing in getting this new website going.

But being a labor of love also means that some genuine labor is involved. It’s not labor in the sense of “work,” implying pain or stress or effort, but rather the labor of a magical incantation, the labor of an alchemist perfecting the philosopher’s stone, the “labor” that takes place in a laboratory– something that provides new sensations, that delights in experimentation, in discovery, and in the sheer rush of learning and insight.

There’s an amazing amount of material to work through in getting this project ready to launch. What’s amazing, too, is how much fun, and just how useful, the information is– for beginners and for seasoned astro-trader alike.

I’m glad this project is underway, and I’m really looking forward to the day when we can flip the switch and launch this new site, a couple of weeks from now.
