TTC – A Big Win For Our Members

Our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com scored a big win a few days ago when they closed out a very profitable trade in The Toro Company (listed under the ticker symbol TTC on the New York Stock Exchange).

We had featured TTC during our members-only conference call on Sunday, May 15, when we discussed our trading plans for the week ahead.

The call was one of the weekly live sessions that are a regular benefit for our Gold-Plus Elite members.

We get together with the group prior to the start of each trading week.

During that time we share our astro-trading market forecasts.

We discuss the specific planetary actions that have the highest probability of moving the markets.

Then we go over all the specifics of our trading plans for the coming week, including the days we plan to enter trades, the times that we want to avoid trading altogether, and the specific stop-loss orders we’ll be putting in place.

Favorable Planetary Prospects for TTC

But why did we include TTC as one of the potential stock trades that we discussed during our conference call on May 15?

Because the planetary forces lining up with this stock’s First-Trade horoscope indicated that it would be a strong opportunity for our unique approach to astro-trading!

TTC May 2016
With transiting Jupiter conjoining the TTC First-Trade Sun, this stock was a logical choice to consider as a short-term trading candidate.

This was a powerful combination to be sure, but the positive potential for TTC went beyond the transits to the First-Trade horoscope.

When we examined the trading record for this stock, we also got a picture of potentially higher prices ahead:

Entering The Trade

Based on these planetary interactions, we made the decision to buy TTC on Thursday, May 19.

We added 200 shares at 82.50 to the Financial Cycles Model Portfolio on that date. We placed an initial protective stop-loss order on the trade at 77.50.

Something To Celebrate

By the end of that trading week, TTC had closed at 84.72 a share, so we raised our stop on the trade to 83.10.

Further trading action brought the price even higher, and we adjusted our stop accordingly.

Then, on Wednesday, June 1, we were stopped out of our position. We sold our 200 shares of TTC at 88.25, taking a profit of $1,150.00 on the trade.

This was a net gain of 6.73% in just 8 trading days.

And it was something for our Gold-Plus Elite members to celebrate!

 

Warren Buffett Does Make Mistakes

That’s right – even Warren Buffett sometimes makes mistakes.

At least that’s the opinion of some contributing writers with USA TODAY, who wrote recently about the stocks that Warren Buffett currently holds in the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio.

They each picked one stock they advised against buying.

Warren Buffett’s Terrible Timing

And of course Warren Buffett does in fact make mistakes from time to time. Especially, as he confesses, in his market timing.

Warren Buffett

“I have been dead wrong,” he admitted in his 2008 letter to shareholders. “Even if prices should rise, moreover, the terrible timing of my purchase has cost Berkshire several billion dollars.”

Here’s what USA Today had to say about Warren Buffett in its recent article:

“Super-investor Warren Buffett has made plenty of investing mistakes. He’s also never been shy about talking about them; to the contrary, his must-read annual letter to shareholders will often spend more time pointing out his flubs than crowing about his successes. And since even the Oracle isn’t infallible, we asked three of our contributors to name a stock that’s in the Berkshire Hathaway Inc portfolio today that investors might not want to buy.”

The article goes on to quote Dan Caplinger, who questions the wisdom of buying Wal-Mart (NYSE-WMT). Caplinger points out that “Even with efforts to bulk up its online e-commerce abilities, Wal-Mart faces pressure from rivals that have no legacy store footprint to manage.”

For Brian Feroldi, Warren Buffett’s big mistake is American Express (NYSE-AXP). Feroldi notes that “the company’s brand name no longer commands the premium market position that it once did and intense competitive pressure is causing the company’s longtime customers to defect.”

And even though Warren Buffett has long been widely known as a huge fan of Coca-Cola, both the product and the stock (NYSE-KO), that’s exactly what Jason Hall calls into question. Hall reminds us that “consumer tastes are changing. Not only are the company’s flagship Coke and Diet Coke products losing popularity, but the entire segment is in decline, with volumes having fallen yearly for most of the past decade.”

You can connect with the entire USA Today article at: http://usat.ly/1pgK4tR.

But What’s Warren Buffett Doing Right?

While the writers cited in the USA Today article may have a point about the long-term viability of these Warren Buffett investments going forward, there’s no question about their success in the past.

Warren Buffett has had a spectacular track record in long-term investing, in spite of his mistakes along the way.

There’s a good lesson to be drawn from his performance.

Whether you’re a long-term investor like Buffett, or are looking for big short-term returns from the markets like our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, it’s important to remember that not every trade will be successful.

Even if you make mistakes and take some losses, you can come out ahead in the long run.

Profit From Warren’s Buffett’s Secrets

It’s also worth studying the strategies behind Warren Buffett’s stock picks, especially the astrological factors that go into his investments.

Warren Buffett Stock Picks

That’s the subject of my e-book What The Government Won’t Tell You About Warren Buffett’s Top 10 Stock Picks. It provides an in-depth analysis that can give you some solid perspectives for your own personal stock market strategies.

You may find it worth re-reading now, especially in the light of some the criticism Buffett has been getting.

Taking Our Stock Market Trading Money Off The Table

It’s always fun to get into a good conversation about stock market trading, especially when there’s a lot going on in the market environment, and even more especially when there are big trading profits along the way.

This week has been no exception. When I joined Michael Yorba for an astro-trading discussion yesterday on his Traders Network TV program, we talked about the treacherous situation in the markets now.

I explained that here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com our Gold-Plus Elite members have been taking some money off the table and closing out some profitable long positions in their stock market trading in recent weeks, in anticipation of a major correction.

It gave us a good opportunity to illustrate just how profitable the astro-trading advantage can really be!

You watch the entire interview, including some sample trading charts of our successful trades, right here:

Mercury & Pluto at the Fed Announcement: Big Action for Stocks, the VIX, and the Dollar, Too!

In spite of the fact that one of our readers has dubbed the comments posted here on the Fed’s announcement today “the worst call out there”, it’s still interesting to see exactly what the markets actually did in the final hours of trading today– and to anticipate what the action in equities will look like tomorrow.

Throughout most of the trading day prior to the 2:00 p.m. announcement, stock prices were churning in a somewhat apprehensive market with a decidedly bearish bias.

But when the Fed announcement was released, it immediately became apparent that Mercury’s conjunction with the Fed Pluto was having exactly the kind of dramatic impact we had anticipated. The major market indices all rallied, breaking into positive territory and pushing to new heights by the end of the trading session.

Fed Indices Response
The S&P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the NASDAQ Composite all rose after the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee made its announcement on June 18, 2014.

The S&P not only rallied, it also managed to hit yet another all-time record high by the time the closing bell on Wall Street rang. Note as well that both Gold and the Euro showed significant strength for the day.

It was also worth watching the VIX during the trading session. This measure of market volatility took a sharp plunge right after the Fed’s announcement, confirming the old “buy the rumor, sell the fact” adage– once the facts were known about the Fed’s intentions, a lot of the uncertainty that had roiled the market action earlier in the day began to fade away.

Fed Announcement VIX Response
The VIX reaction to the Fed’s announcement was quite dramatic.

In looking at the VIX chart, it’s worth observing that the index had already risen to the higher levels we had forecast last week as a potential response to Mercury’s retrograde passage over the cardinal axis. We’re still looking for more action in this Fear Index during the coming weeks, with a return to higher levels of volatility as we approach the July 4 Independence Day holiday.

This dramatic action in the VIX was further confirmation of the power of the Mercury/Pluto combination that made the timing for this event so noteworthy.

But even though the Mercury/Pluto action bore out the forecast, I had also looked at the Mars transit to the Fed chart and had assumed that the market’s reaction to the announcement would be “less than enthusiastic,” based largely on the activation of the Moon/Saturn midpoint in the Fed horoscope.

Things didn’t turn out that way.

We certainly didn’t see a negative reaction in equities during the remainder of the trading day. But Mars moves more slowly than Mercury, so the impact of its transit is likely to carry on a little longer. That’s one of the reasons why we’re still anticipating a pull-back in stock prices before the end of the week– and why our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com are planning to add to the short positions in our Model Portfolio before the market closes on Friday..

Remember, too, that the influence of the Federal Reserve goes far beyond just the price of stocks. The Fed’s announcements have a big impact on currencies, of course, which is why it was particularly interesting to see what happened to the dollar this afternoon:

Dollar Reacts to Fed
The U.S. Dollar Index had been trending lower before the Fed’s announcement on Wednesday afternoon, but as soon as the official word was released the Greenback started going through wild swings. Volatility remained high for the rest of the day, with the dollar pushing sharply lower.

 

Stock Market Trading – Blowing Out the NYSE Birthday Candles

The New York Stock Exchange will be 222 years old on Saturday, May 17, and to help celebrate the occasion I’ll be traveling to Nova Southeastern University in the Fort Lauderdale area to lead a financial astrology weekend for the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

During this two-day event I’ll be discussing in-depth market analysis methods for using astrology in stock market trading, looking at individual natal horoscopes to identify the best personal trading strategies, and conducting an intensive workshop designed to demonstrate the state-of-the-art research and assessment techniques we use here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com to help our Gold-Plus Elite members get such strong and consistent results in their personal stock market trading.

The Saturday morning session on “The NYSE at 222” will begin at 10:30 a.m. During that session we’ll explore:

Timing the horoscope for the New York Stock Exchange

Charts for the reorganization and reincorporation of the NYSE

Horoscopes for winning and losing years

Trading in the electronic age

And a lot more.

In “Have You Got the Right Chart for Success in the Markets?” – our session on Saturday afternoon — we’ll encounter the key factors in the natal horoscope that indicate an aptitude for stock market trading, and that signal the potential for success with money in general.

Then on Sunday I’ll be providing a behind-the-scenes look at the analysis and research that go into the in-depth articles, coaching sessions, and one-on-one support we provide for our Gold-Plus Elite members. This is critical information and cutting-edge techniques that you need to know if you want to take a do-it-yourself approach to astro-trading in today’s challenging stock market trading environment.

It all adds up to a great weekend event that can make a huge difference in your personal performance in the markets. It’s the perfect complement to The Basic Stock Market Astrology Home Study Course and other instructional materials that we provide.

Whether you’re an active astro-trader or are just thinking about using astrology with your stock market trading, you’ll get a lot from these presentations, as well as the shared time together between the program sessions.

Although this weekend of events is being sponsored by the local chapter of the NCGR, it’s open to non-members as well. The cost is just $45 for all day on Saturday ($40 for NCGR members) and $90 for the Sunday Intensive. Send an email to Mimi Alonzo at MysticMimi@gmail.com to get pre-registration information.

Step-by-Step Astro-Trading Analysis

When our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com got together for our monthly webinar Thursday evening, we had a chance to go over all the major astrological events coming up throughout the month of March.

In understanding the real effect of planetary phenomena on market movements, we’ve discovered that one of the best ways to avoid confusion and get past seemingly contradictory timing signals is to take a systematic, step-by-step approach to the astrological factors influencing the markets, examining each one in turn and then looking at the composite picture that’s presented by all the variables in aggregate.

That approach is exactly what we demonstrated during last night’s webinar, and by the time we were done we had developed a comprehensive picture of what we expect the equities markets to look like in March, including key trends and turning points.

The response to this information was fantastic, and I’m really grateful for everyone who shared their positive comments after the event. Giving you astro-trading information that you can use for more reliable profits in the markets is what our Gold-Plus Elite program is all about!

If you’re one of our Gold-Plus Elite members, be sure to review the recording of the webinar so you know exactly what’s coming up during the month ahead!

And if you’re not already one of our members, this is a great time to take a look at the program– go to http://bit.ly/FCWgpe for details on a 21-day trial membership.

I hope you’ll join us!

5 Big Wins in 3 Days

I love it!

One of the things I enjoy most about our Gold-Plus Elite membership program at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com is seeing the results our members are getting in the stock market. I’m really proud of their success!

This week is a great example.

During the first three days of this week, our Gold-Plus Elite members closed out FIVE WINNING TRADES for a total profit of $2,135!

It didn’t take them a long time to do that– the individual trades lasted from as little as 4 days to a maximum of 22 days– but the really great thing about it was how little effort it took on their part!

They didn’t have to try to figure out when to get out the trades to take profits.

They didn’t have to be highly-skilled traders or expert astrologers.

In fact, they didn’t have to know anything at all about astrology!

Here’s what happened to enable them to grab such big market rewards:

First, they got on one of our weekly Conference Calls exclusively for Gold-Plus Elite Members to get a detailed description of trading plans based on the astro-trading advantage (if they missed the live call, they could dial up a special number to listen to a recording of the whole thing at their convenience).

Then, they used their own trading accounts to enter the Model Portfolio trades at the specific times discussed on the call.

Once they entered the trades, they set stops at the precise levels mentioned on the Conference Call. Then, once a week for as long as the trades were active, they adjusted the stops in their personal trading accounts.

That’s it!

Once the trades turned profitable and those profits were locked in, our members did absolutely nothing until the trades were closed and the cash register rang, putting money into their trading accounts.

There are tons of great resources available to our Gold-Plus Elite members who want to do their own research or who are working to master the astro-trading advantage.

But the fact is, if you’re a Gold-Plus Elite Member, you don’t have to use any of them.

Instead, like our members who brought in great profits from their trades in the last three days, you can put in a minimal amount of time and effort to get some really outstanding results– our weekly Conference Calls last about 30 minutes, and it takes 15 to 20 minutes each week to enter trades and adjust stops in your own trading account.

By the way, if you’d like the details on our members’ successful trades during the past three days, you can CLICK HERE.

Our Gold-Plus Elite Members Ring the Cash Register

Compared to putting money in a savings account at today’s prevailing rates, a return of 0.96% is actually pretty respectable.

But can you earn 0.96% in just one week?

If you’re one of our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com you can!

That’s just what happened today when we closed out our short position in Ixia (NASDAQ – XXIA). We discussed this stock during our members-only conference call on Sunday evening, August 12, and then sold XXIA short on Monday, August 13 at 15.20 a share.

Our members began the trade with a buy stop set at 16.50, and then moved it to 15.15 at the opening today to lock in profits.

And then ka-CHING! They collected their 0.96% return when the buy stop was hit at 2:48 this afternoon, putting money in their pockets just one week at a better rate than they would have gotten in a year with most savings accounts.

That’s what the astro-trading advantage is all about– great work, team!
