Tides, Cycles and the Next Recession

Is the next recession coming soon?

The news underscores the uncertainty in the markets.

There are huge daily swings in the major market indices.

It means great opportunity for savvy traders who have nerves of steel.

But for most of us it’s very confusing – and maybe a little bit scary, too!

Protecting Your Wealth

Whether your financial goal is a comfortable retirement or a capital legacy, there are challenging times ahead.

The Next Recession

You don’t have to be a genius to see that there’s a high probability of a recession coming up.

But there are questions about the probability of a big downturn in the economy:

What about the next recession?

When is it likely to happen? Are we looking at months, or years?

How long will it last? Will it be just a passing phase that’s soon forgotten, or will we confront stubborn economic resistance for several years or more?

Just how big an impact will it have? Will we suffering badly, or will we eventually shrug it off as a minor inconvenience?

Those are some of the questions I’ve been pondering lately.

And I’ve actually had some quality time to do some pondering, which is incredibly important.

I’m in the middle of some down time on an island off the coast of South Carolina.

I’ve been getting some great rest, some wonderful food, good family company, and a great break from distractions.

So I’ve been looking at big picture concerns from a fresh perspective.

I’ve been watching tides, considering cycles, and contemplating the potential for another economic down turn.

Here’s a brief video that shares what I’ve been thinking about so far:

What do you think?

Does what I’m saying make any sense to you?

Have you got a personal story to tell about your experiences during a pulback in the economy?

Do you have specific ideas that might be helpful to others?

Bitcoin Trading Channels

When I connected with Larry Pesavento yesterday for an interview on his Trade What You See program on the Tiger Financial News Network, we talked about bitcoin trading channels.

bitcoin trading channels
Mercury and Vulcanus were in alignment at the all-time high for bitcoin in December, 2017, and they still work to define bitcoin trading channels today.

We also talked about upcoming trends in the S&P 500 Index, SuperMoons, astro-meteorology, and a whole lot more.

Why Bitcoin Trading Channels Are Important

But the bitcoin trading channels were a key point in our discussion. They’re a favorite topic on TFNN.  especially since there’s so much continuing interest in cryptocurrencies.

That’s even more true among traders who are looking for quick profits from their market activity.

Many traders would prefer to see a return to the kind of speculative bubble we saw in late 2017. But paying attention to the trading channels can reveal equally strong opportunities.

All you have to do is be willing to trade along within the boundaries of the current trading channels. Then watch for breakouts, shifts and divergences.

Here’s a video recording of the complete interview with Larry Pesavento on February 1, 2019:

Mercury Retrograde Ends At Last

Mercury retrograde.

What a pain in the neck.

What a pain in the posterior, too.

I’ve been working with astrology for well over 50 years. But I still haven’t gotten completely used to those annoying times when we have Mercury retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde Cycles

And those times aren’t  all that unusual, either.

As I noted in my book Mercury, Money & The Markets, we get a Mercury retrograde period about three times a year, for about three weeks each time.

I still get blind-sided.

I still make mistakes.

But I also get inspired to continue the Mercury research, looking for more correlations between planetary cycles and actions in the markets.

I shared some of that research during a live webinar earlier today. We focused on the impact of Mercury direct stations on a variety of market sectors.

Here’s an excerpt from that session:

Hong Kong Mercury Retrograde

The Hong Kong Mercury retrograde that’s getting underway is likely to be worth watching.

Mercury goes retrograde Sunday evening, April 9.

Tune in if you’re an active astro-trader.

That’s true for markets around the globe, of course.

But it’s especially significant for Hong Kong.

The Hang Seng Index responds to Mercury retrograde periods that begin in Earth signs in a very distinctive way.

So you’ll want to know exactly how it works.

This brief video provides the details.

It’s only about four minutes long, so there’s no reason not to watch it now.

As the video points out, Hong Kong Mercury retrograde periods are powerful.

Very powerful, in fact.

They’re highlighted in the book Mercury, Money and the Markets.

Hong Kong Mercury Retrograde and More In This Book

You can get it at Amazon.

You’ll find a lot of key information packed into this book.

It’s gotten rave reviews from many of the world’s top traders.

And it’s easy to see why.

Hong Kong Mercury Retrograde and More

It’s a remarkable book. Not quite like any other.

That’s because it provides some real answers about Mercury retrogrades.

This book gives you trading ideas. You’ll find plenty of key information to inform your trading. So its useful not only in Hong Kong but in individual equities and in other major markets around the world. From jakarta to Tokyo, and from Tel Aviv to Sao Paolo.

It provides important back-testing.

And it’s a reference tool you’ll turn to again and again. It even includes a 201-year Mercury retrograde ephemeris.

So it has a long shelf life, too!

Mercury Metrics

You’ll also want to check out Mercury Metrics.

That’s the quarterly supplement to the Mercury Money and the Markets book.

It’s a quick read, delivered via online download every 90 days.

It’s typically only about eight or ten pages long.

But the fact is, that’s as long as it needs to be.

It covers the key Mercury alignments that really move markets.

Including the not-so-common ones.

They can be a big boost to your trading.

And Mercury Metrics will definitely save you a lot of time in finding them.

So it’s well worth investing in a subscription.

But the bottom line is this:

With or without the Mercury book and the Mercury Metrics supplement, keep an eye on Mercury.

You’ll be glad you did.

Especially if you’re tracking Hong Kong Mercury retrograde periods.

Hong Kong In October

Speaking of Hong Kong, I’ve recently agreed to travel there later this year.

A group of advanced traders there has invited me to share some of our research on astro-trading, W. D. Gann, and market harmonics.

I’ll be doing that in a full-day workshop in Hong Kong on October 21.

I hope you can join me there – I’ll be sharing more details as they become available!




Astro-Trading Symposium Coming Soon

The big Heart of the Lion Astro-Trading Symposium is just days away.

I’m excited, of course, and maybe just a little bit frantic – there are plenty of last-minute details to take care of.

We’ve got people coming from several continents coming.

They’ll be sharing their ideas, insights and experience in astro-trading – I’m really expecting this to be a breakthrough event in a lot of ways!

We’ve got lots of wonderful speakers lined up, too. Jim Cummins will be joining us, along with Doug Capehart, David Beazley, and Orest Taraban. And Michael Lee is flying in from Sydney, Australia just to be a part of this exciting event.

If you won’t be coming to Florida on September 26 and 27 to join us, you’ll certainly be missed.

And the fact is, this astro-trading symposium has some historical significance, too. It’ designed to be the first, but it certainl

We are, however, planning to videotape the entire event – I’ll be keeping you posted later about the availability of the recordings.

Trade Management Really Matters

I guess I should be more vocal about trade management.

At least that’s the word that I just got in an email from Richard, who’s been following our work in market astrology for the last few years.

“If I may give you an opinion on your emails (I’ve been receiving them for quite some time),” Richard said, “you never talk about strategies for position size management, entering with low risk, managing the trade (managing the risk), pyramiding (adding to a winning position), thoughts on anti-martingale strategy (reducing size when performing poorly) and discipline/patience (Staying out of the market when there is no trade) and also cutting losses while they are still small.

“You also don’t seem to recommend any books or anything. So that’s just my opinion.”

Why Trade Management Is Missing

Needless to say, I really appreciate Richard’s sharing his opinion.

And his point is well taken.

The truth is, I don’t mention trade management very often in the emails I send out to subscribers who have opted-in to get more information about our programs, products, and services.

And there’s a reason for that.

Most of those email subscribers have signed up to get notifications because they’re curious about financial astrology.

They want to know whether or not astro-trading really works.

Some of them are active in the markets.

But most of them are just thinking about trading. They’e never actually put money into the markets.

Or they’re just kicking the tires of astro-trading because they haven’t really decided yet if they’re interested or not.

So sending them emails with an in-depth focus on trade management doesn’t really help them very much.

So Where’s The Trade Management Information?

It’s a different story, however, for our members, students, and customers.

Trade management is a key part of virtually everything that we teach about astro-trading.

It’s been at the core of the trading strategy that we’ve used with the Financial Cycles  Model Portfolio.

Trade Management Creates This Track Record

It’s what’s responsible for our repeated success. Our Model Portfolio has consistently out-performed the Dow and the S&P 500 year after year, without any losing years for the past 14 years.

Trade management is also a big part of the done-with-you services we provide for our Gold-Plus Elite members at financialcyclesweekly.com.

In our weekly conference calls we discuss specific trade management strategies with our members. Our weekly newsletter provides detailed trade management guidelines for each of the trades active in the portfolio. It also includes suggested parameters for the new trades we are considering during the coming week of trading.

Individual Attention To Trade Management

The fact is, trade management is essential if you want to be successful in the markets.

I personally drive that point home again and again in the one-on-one coaching calls that I have with active traders. They want the extra edge that the astro-trading advantage offers.

It’s a standard part of each group mentoring call that I facilitate for our Project Regulus members, who make a long-term commitment to astro-trading mastery.

It will also be a big part of our discussions at the Heart of the Lion Astro-Trading Symposium in September.

What Can Effective Trade Management Do For You?

Managing your trades effectively is mainly about following a specific set of rules.

When you enter a trade, determine in advance how much you’re prepared to lose.

Set your initial stops accordingly.

Pay attention to position size. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.

Use the timing guidelines we provide for our Gold-Plus Elite members. They’re designed to identify high-probability, low-risk trading opportunities.

Once a trade is active, trail your stops periodically. This helps reduce your risk and then lock in your profits.

Heed the guidelines we give our Gold-Plus Elite members about the specific times to stay out of the markets. We can tell in advance when we want to avoid initiating active trades.

Most importantly, be sure to take losses quickly and cheerfully. A quick loss is typically a small loss, which means you’ve saved some of your trading capital. It’s money that you can use again to trade another day!

Finally, don’t forget that a vital part of trade management is managing yourself as a trader.

Remember to keep notes on yourself.

How are you feeling? Why are you taking the trades that you have chosen? What’s going through your mind when the market turns? What’s happening with the money in your horoscope?

The more clearly you understand yourself as a trader, the more effective your trade management will be.

More Trade Management Resources

Although we often mention trade management principles in our live webinars and other interactions, you’ll also find great resources in some of our courses and training programs for astro-traders.

“The Confidential Astro-Trading Formula for Financial Independence” and “Astro-Trading and Your Personal Money Flow” are two good examples.

Both courses are available in online video format. That means you can absorb the information at your own pace.

They can both provide a big boost to your trade management skills.

And from time to time, you can get them free.

We’re giving both of these top-level training programs away as bonuses with our new Gold-Plus Elite ROI Accelerator program.

This is a high-level membership. We only open the doors for new participants for brief periods every few weeks.

But when we do, you can get both courses – plus a bundle of other great bonuses – as a free gift for enrolling.

How Long Does A Solar Eclipse Last?

We’re just a week away from the next big solar eclipse.

It’s not just a key part of the 2016 astrology outlook.

Are you ready for the next big solar eclipse?
Are you ready for the next big solar eclipse?

There’s no doubt about it – eclipses move markets!

That’s what makes solar eclipses so important for astro-trading.

But many people underestimate the power and duration of eclipse effects.

That’s why our new monograph on Wisdom and Warnings at a Solar Eclipse includes an extensive list of eclipse activation dates.

It’s also why I put together this quick video:

The new eclipse report is scheduled for distribution on March 5th.

You can pre-order your personal copy now at:


2016 Calendar Adds Online Training

Something funny happened when I finished up the work on the 2016 calendar for astro-money planning.

We had gotten a huge response when we came out with the calendar for 2015 last year.

I had already started getting requests for the new one. People wanted to know when the 2016 calendar would be available.

Improving and Expanding the 2016 Calendar

So when I went to work on the calendar for the new year, I decided to make it bigger and better.

The calendar for 2015 had all the information for an entire year crammed onto one single sheet of paper.

But this time around I opened things up, making it much easier to read and use.

2016 Calendar Cover

As a result, the 2016 calendar is a 7-page pdf file. All the color-coded instructions and interpretations are on the cover page.

It’s not only more colorful than last year’s edition – it’s more useful, too!

Like last year, I’m distributing it free to anyone who requests a copy.

Click Here For The Calendar

I know you’re going to love it!

The Funny Thing

But as I was saying, a funny thing happened after I completed the work on the 2016 calendar.

I decided to make a quick support video to go along with the calendar.

But I didn’t do that. Instead, I ended up creating an entire mini-course.

The fact is, this course was originally intended to be one short video showing you a simple system for planning your financial year with astrology.

All I wanted to do was show you how to use the color-coded Astro-Money Planning Calendar.

But what can I say?

I got carried away.

I ended up creating a complete training program to support the 2016 calendar, including…

  • 100% free and no strings attached video course (with 11 modules). It contains the simple system that (by itself) allows you to step into the coming year with complete confidence. It helps you guard against financial booby traps and make bold moves to increase your personal wealth.
  • The videos give you step-by-step instructions on how to use planetary timing for your money strategies – even if you currently know nothing at all about financial astrology.
  • My goal was to give you insider access to this entire astro-money system (and of course full explanations on how to use it).

More Than Just A Calendar

So the 2016 calendar is over-the-top in a lot of ways.

It’s not just a calendar.

It’s a complete mini-course.

It’s yours free to view online in its entirety. There’s no tricky stuff. There’s no sign-up or opt-in required. There are no back-end hidden payments.

You’ll find the course at: https://cleostbc.leadpages.co/freemoneycourse2016/

It’s just my personal gift to you. I want you to have a truly prosperous and enjoyable year.

I hope this 2016 calendar and the online course will help.

Happy New Year!

Solar Eclipse Webinar Replay

We had a great crowd for our pre-eclipse webinar last night.

We got together online for a review of the basic astrological strategies that can be used to forecast the impact of a solar eclipse in mundane astrology, and to share some comments about today’s big solar eclipse as well.

Tips, Gifts & Solar Eclipse Esoterica

The session included some practical tips for active astro-traders, a little bit of esoteric knowledge, and some extra gifts for webinar participants.

The whole event took less than an hour, but we covered a lot of territory, and there plenty of positive feedback from the participants.

But I also got a bunch of emails last night from people who had missed the webinar, but still wanted to know about the potential impact of the solar eclipse on the markets.

That’s why I’m really glad that we got a good recording of last night’s webinar. It’s all been processed, and you watch the session in its entirety here:

As you watch the video, you’ll want to have pen and paper handy. We packed a lot of information into this session, and much of it will be useful to you in working with eclipses coming up in the future, in addition to the one that’s happening today.

Which reminds me. One of the tools that we shared during the webinar was a special Solar Eclipse List, featuring details about all the solar eclipses from 2015 through 2025. It’s a handy pdf cheat sheet that can speed up longer-term solar eclipse forecasting for astro-traders – you can download a free copy by CLICKING HERE.

Webinar Discounts

We also provided some special discounts for webinar participants, not only on our newly-published report Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015, but also on the classic (and massive) Solar Eclipse Secrets Collection e-book.

The new report just came out a few days ago, and the Solar Eclipse Secrets Collection compiles previous reports on seven solar eclipses.

Both of these publications are available from Harmonic Research Associates – and even if you’re just watching the video replay of the webinar instead of participating live, you can still take advantage of the discounts on these important publications by CLICKING HERE.

Watch The Markets

Be sure to keep an eye on any market you’re trading to take advantage of the solar eclipse effects. Remember that this solar eclipse will not only impact things on a short-term basis; it will also have residual effects that last for many months to come. You’ll find all the specific solar eclipse activation dates through the middle of 2016 listed in Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015.
