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!

Admetos Spotlight Highlights Gold

All markets will be in the Admetos spotlight when the transneptunian factor makes its retrograde station at the end of August.

Admetos will begin its annual period of retrograde motion on August 31. That provides a potential pivot point for the markets.

In fact, Admetos retrograde stations are frequently followed by an upward trend in stock market prices.

That was a key topic I discussed with Larry Pesavento earlier today. I’m always glad to be his guest.

Today I focused on the Admetos Spotlight during his broadcast of the Trade What You See program on TFNN.

Gold In The Admetos Spotlight

In particular, I shared my research on the impact of Admetos stations on the price of Gold.

When the yellow metal is in the Admetos spotlight at the time of the retrograde station, there’s a distinct buying opportunity.

That’s what’s happening now.

Here’s the video of my interview with Larry, including details on the reasons behind this Admetos spotlight trade in Gold.

Not all transneptunian stations have the same kind of impact, of course.

But in this case I think it’s worth paying attention to Gold in the Admetos spotlight!

The Astro-Trading Intensive

By the way, during the interview Larry Pesavento also asked me about our new Astro-Trading Intensive training program.

This brand-new training program has just been released in its online version, and it’s getting rave reviews.

The Astro-Trading Intensive is designed to help you get the most from your astro-trading experience. It removes confusion and uncertainty.

It gets you past the sense of overwhelm that sometimes sets in when you try to learn something new.

Most of all it moves youtoward profitable trading. It takes you by the hand and guides you step by step toward real astro-trading results.

It’s a great way to get up to speed with the astro-trading advantage in a short period of time.

New Transneptunian Explorations Coming

We’re getting ready to launch a new Transneptunian program.

This new service is the result of ongoing requests from readers and subscribers.

Many of them seem particularly intrigued (or confused) by the Transneptunian Factors and their role in astro-trading.

Over the years, we’ve dealt with such questions on a case-by-case basis. I’ve posted on this blog, written articles, conducted webinars, and had lots of one-on-discussions, on Skype, via telephone, or in person.

For example, we’ve done some extensive studies of the role of the Sun and Kronos in tracking the trading action for Gold.

We’ve also examined the results of Jupiter and Admetos interactions.

And the list goes on.

New Transneptunian Directions

But now, thanks to a steady demand, it’s definitely time for a new Transneptunain program.

We’ll be launching it soon.

New Transneptunian Program

As we make plans for this exciting new program, I’d like to invite you to join us in the planning process.

Participate By Taking Our Survey

To make that happen, start by taking our 3-minute survey.

It will give you an opportunity to talk about what interests you most, what questions you have, and what new Transneptunian discussions you’d like to see us have.

Be sure to include your contact information when you take the survey.

Then, to keep up to date with our plans as they emerge, go to: http://bit.ly/TNP33

You can enter your email address there to get on the list for updated details.

We’ll be sharing more information very soon!

 

Stock Market Crash Forecast From A Gold Bug

A big stock market crash is on the way.

In fact, according to a pro-gold research organization, it’s due right now!

It’s Time For The Stock Market Crash – All Three Major US Indices Have Broken Record Highs

That’s the compelling headline for a recent blog post at Palisade Research.

The post argues that the simultaneous record highs set by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 Index, and the NASDAQ Composite Index is a strong indicator that a major top is in.

And if a top is in, of course, a big stock market crash is on the way!

stock market crash because of record highs

Palisade Research illustrated the blog post with this dramatic chart. It not only shows the price lines for the Dow, the S&P, and the NASDAQ. It also shows the HUI Index, which is the NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index. (Palisade Research has an unabashed bullish bias on precious metals.)

According to Palisade Research, “The last time the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), and NASDAQ closed simultaneously at record highs, each index tumbled for the next 2.5 years: -40.33%, 25.04%, and -75.04%, respectively.”

If History Really Repeats Itself, Just How Bad Will The Stock Market Crash Be?

The classic warning in the markets, of course, is that “past performance is no guarantee of future results.”

That’s true when we want to make optimistic assumptions about our trading prospects. It’s true when we seek to justify big positions on the basis of our back-testing and the big successes we may have experienced in the past.

But it’s also true of doom and gloom predictions, too!

Even so, Palisade Research doesn’t hesitate to extrapolate the likelihood of a major plunge based on what happened after the most recent stock market crash and its predecessor 14 years ago:

“In fact,” the blog post notes, “if the market were to correct in a similar way as we saw in 2002 and 2009, we can expect the S&P 500, DJIA, and NASDAQ to drop -64.65%, -60.72%, -75.80%, respectively.”

So will get a giant stock market crash in the weeks ahead?

Time will tell. It’s been almost 2 years since we mentioned a possible stock market crash.

But our analysis definitely shows the potential for consolidation, if not an outright correction.

And with the current eclipse cycle getting underway, this is definitely a time for stock market bulls to be extremely cautious!

Michael Phelps – What Are Gold Medals Worth?

Michael Phelps has been winning gold medals. But how much are they really worth?

After all, the Olympic swimmer has got a bunch of them!

He has broken record after record, setting an incredibly high standard that others can only aspire to meet.

From the astrological perspective he’s a sun-sign Cancer, which is a water sign (of course!). His goal-oriented Sagittarius Moon keeps him focused on one achievement after another.

What he does in the pool transcends mere swimming. It’s not even just about racing or competition.

He has modeled self-discipline at a truly amazing level, taking athletic training to extremes (both phyisically and mentally) that can only be described as insanely obsessive.

His name has become virtually synonymous with the Olympic games themselves.

Michael Phelps is scheduled to swim one last time tonight in Rio as an Olympian when he joins Team USA for a relay event.

In all likelihood, it will give him one more shot at winning yet another gold medal.

And after that, he’s retiring.

At least that’s what he says he’s going to do – he said the same thing after the 2012 Olympics in London.

Michael Phelps
Michael Phelps is extremely good at collecting gold medals

But, of course, he’s back this year, turning in more dazzling performances in the pool. . . and grabbing more gold along the way.

And who really knows what the 2020 Olympics will bring? A lot can happen between now and then.

But What About The Medals Phelps Has?

If they were to go on the auction block, what would they bring?

Would just the fact that Michael Phelps won them add to their value?

And what about the intrinsic metallic value of the medals themselves?

The gold medals that Michael Phelps has won are, after all, only gold plated. (You were thinking they were maybe solid gold?)

There’s some really interesting math involved when you try to figure it all out.

An article in today’s Washington Post offers some useful perspectives:

A New Buy Signal For Gold

tance, adinastro-tradingPrices for the yellow metal advanced nicely during the closing days of the trading week, triggering a new buy signal for gold in astro-trading.

At FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, we had been on a sell signal since early February, and the  move we captured with that bearish position helped us earn a ranking in the Top 5 Gold Timers in the current issue of Timer Digest.

The new buy signal for gold now aligns us with many other timers in this market – but the proof will ultimately be revealed in the market for the precious metal during the coming months.

What’s The Astrology Behind A Buy Signal For Gold?

We watch many planetary factors in our market timing, but over and over again I’ve found that interactions of the Sun and Kronos help determine significant levels of support and resistance for Gold.

Once again, we’re seeing Kronos come into play to trigger a buy signal for gold.

On Thursday, the yellow metal made a big move up and closed just above an eighth-harmonic Kronos planetary price line that had been providing significant resistance all year.

On Friday Gold traded through that line even more emphatically, pushing to an even higher close.

Gold Buy Signal Kronos
The current buy signal for gold comes from the metal’s successful penetration of price resistance provided by an eighth-harmonic planetary price line for the transneptunian Kronos.

While this latest price action aligned with Kronos is impressive, it’s also helpful to put it into perspective by looking at previous occasions when Kronos and the Sun figured prominently in defining the trading action for Gold.

For example, an article published in FinancialCyclesWeekly in September 2014 offers some insights that are still relevant today. It reveals why Kronos and the Sun are such powerful factors in trading Gold successfully, whether we are seeing a downturn in the precious metal or whether the planets are giving us a new buy signal for Gold.

How Low Will Gold Go?

The selling pressure in Gold continues to defy the pundits and dismay the Gold Bugs, and at this point there doesn’t look like there’s a clear-cut end to the decline in sight.

It’s interesting to note, however, that as we closed out the trading week Gold broke through eighth-harmonic Kronos support, opening up the possibility of even lower prices to come.

GOLD-KRONOS-FIRSTHARM

As this trading chart illustrates, the next level down is Kronos in the first harmonic. That’s a much stronger level of planetary support than an eighth-harmonic line, so we’ll be keeping a close watch.

At present our expectation is that we’ll see Gold hit first-harmonic Kronos support at 1178 on or about October 2nd, when the next big Sun/Kronos alignment takes place.

Watching Gold with the Sun and Kronos

I’ve really been amazed at the consistency with which the planetary price action of the Sun and Kronos defines significant movements in Gold trading.

It’s particularly exciting because it shows us the ways that the Transneptunian factors can be used as active indicators in our day-to-day trading.

And with specific Sun/Kronos alignments coming up in the months ahead, it’s important to keep an eye on the potential impact on Gold, especially since the yellow metal has been under such stress lately.

I recently put an article on this subject, along with some charts you may find interesting, on the FinancialCyclesWeekly.com website.

A Chat with Yorba on Astro-Trading Gold

When I got together with Michael Yorba during his interview with me on the Traders Network TV show earlier this week, we spent some time reviewing the Emerald Tablet trading strategy that’s discussed in the book on Mercury, Money and the Markets: Profitable Planetary Cycles for Short-Term Astro-Trading.

I posted the trading charts for Gold on a recent blog post, and used them as illustrations for my discussion with Michael about the potential for refined astro-trading timing by using both the inferior Sun/Mercury conjunction and the superior conjunction as well.

You can see those Gold charts at http://marketastrologer.realbusinessresults.com/another-emerald-tablet-trade-gold/

But Michael also used the interview time to review the ways that planetary indicators can highlight many market trends, offering us a clear advantage when we use astro-trading techniques.

You can watch the video recording of the entire interview from Thursday’s Traders Network show right here:

By the way, the webinar that I mentioned to Michael at the end of the interview was a live event later that evening; We got a video recording of that event as well; and it’s worth watching as an introduction to our Gold-Plus Elite membership program at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com and a review of the great material that’s in the works with our new class on How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope.

Another Emerald Tablet Trade for Gold

In the book Mercury, Money and the Markets: Profitable Planetary Cycles for Short-Term Astro-Trading, there’s a description of the Emerald Tablet trading technique for Gold, as well as a complete list of dates between 2012 and 2050 when this trade set-up can occur for the yellow metal.

It’s a simple technique, and one that every astro-trader in precious metals needs to know about.

As the book explains, this unique approach to Gold involves an observation of the trading range on the date of a Sun/Mercury inferior conjunction, and then watching for price excursions beyond that range to set up potential profits on the date of the next Sun/Mercury superior conjunction, when Gold is likely to return to (or at least overlap) the previous trading range.

For example, this phenomenon last occurred between February and April this year, with Gold closing at 1303.60 on April 25 in a return to the 1299.90 – 1321.50 trading range established in mid-February: We are now nearing the completion of another such cycle, with the Sun/Mercury superior conjunction on August 8 likely to see Gold touching the trading range that was established on June 19:

We’ll discuss these charts and review coming price trends during the webinar tonight:
