Delta Aquarid meteor shower to light up night sky

From USA TODAY

Delta Aquarid meteor shower to light up night sky

The nights may be short, but with the weather warm it’s a great time to check out some sky magic. The Delta Aquarid meteor shower peaks Thursday July 28 and Friday July 29. Though it’s an average meteor shower compared to others throughout the year, you can still see up to 20 meteors per hour. The best time to look is between midnight and just before dawn. Look toward the southern sky for the best viewing. The moon is only a crescent, so its light won’t disrupt the show. This annual meteor shower is best for observers in the Southern Hemisphere, along more southerly regions of the Northern Hemisphere, according to Slooh.com, where you can also watch the shower.

Project Regulus & The Heart of the Lion

Our first-ever astro-trading symposium coming up in late September has its roots in Project Regulus.

This 3-minute video provides some of the background – please plan to join us!

Planetary Pairs in the Markets

Planetary pairs are one of the keys to effective analysis in astro-trading.

What are planetary pairs?

Basically they’re just two different planets that are used in combination to determine the characteristics of specific market action.

Different planetary pairs can be used with different stocks.

Ideally the planets involved will not only connect with the trading action, but will also relate in some way with the characteristics of the company as well.

But even if you’ve managed to select a good pair, it may not last.

Sometimes the trading energy for a particular stock will shift, and the planetary pairs will no longer describe the trading action accurately.

When that happens it’s up to us as astro-traders to examine other potential combinations of planetary pairs. We begin the search for what’s working now.

Picking The Best Planetary Pairs For Trading

Sometimes that search can be pretty frustrating.

We may look through dozens of planetary pairs, seeking in vain for the precise combination that fits the behavior of the stock we want to trade.

At other times the process of filtering through potential planetary pairs takes almost no time at all.

With a flash of inspiration, the perfect combination seems to appear magically!

But what is it that makes the perfect combination?

Fast and Slow

Ideally, you’re looking for one fast-moving planet and one slower-moving planet.

The faster planet will often help define trading trends, while its slower-moving companion helps structure key zones of support and resistance.

And fast and slow are always comparative.

Mercury is faster than Jupiter, but Jupiter is faster than Pluto.

Generally speaking, though, when you pick a fast planet you’ll be selecting the Sun or the Moon, or Mercury, Venus, or Mars.

For slower-moving planets you’ve got lots of options.

Transneptunians As Slow Planets

The Transneptunian Factors are particularly slow moving, which can make them extremely useful in constructing planetary pairs for market analysis.
TNP Transitions Planetary Pairs

We discussed this briefly in our recent webinar on the current Admetos action. Our focus was “The Hidden Transneptunian Transition Just Ahead” – the session provided an in-depth look at some critical factors other financial astrologers have overlooked. The webinar recording is worth downloading and reviewing in detail.

A Free Resource From TradersWorld

TW63

As a result of some focused research on the importance of planetary pairs, I wrote an article which has recently been published in Issue #63 of TradersWorld magazine. It takes a detailed look at the importance of this kind of planetary calculation, and why it’s so critical for astro-traders to include it in their work.

Thanks to the generosity of Larry Jacobs, the editor of TradersWorld, you can get this information for free.

Not just the article I wrote, but the complete Issue #63 in its entirety!

It amounts to 161 pages of great information on trading and market analysis – you’ll find it enormously useful if you want to expand your personal effectiveness as an astro-trader.

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.

Unseen Forces & W. D. Gann

I was just re-reading a passage about unseen forces from W. D. Gann, the pioneering astro-trader.

“The man who invented wireless and radio imagined he could do it,” Gann wrote, “and he did it. This is the greatest proof of the unseen forces being the most powerful.

“You cannot see the air waves or sound waves, but you can hear them and you know they work.

“You cannot see the Divine force that is in the air, but it is there and all powerful, and will work miracles for you if you will have faith and put it into action.”

Unseen Forces In Radio Waves

W. D. Gann knew about the unseen forces in radio wave propagation.

Benefiting From Unseen Forces

W. D. Gann not only knew about unseen forces.

He relied on them in his private spiritual life.

He also used them extensively in his market analysis and trading.

The most powerful of these unseen forces was what he called the Law of Vibration.

The Law of Vibration was extremely important to Gann and his methods, which is why it’s one of the key topics that we cover in our new course on Gann Plan Trading Success 101.

This new course is designed to give you a solid foundation in Gann studies without the stress, the uncertainty, or the expense that most other Gann programs have.

Is Money Really The Problem?

The cost of some Gann study programs can be pretty intimidating, of course.

But for many traders who want to learn W. D. Gann’s techniques, the money involved isn’t really a problem.

Instead, they’re much more concerned about getting off to the right start.

After all, when you’re dealing with the impact of unseen forces, it’s easy to get a little confused.

Your biggest question may simply be “where do I begin?”

That’s exactly why we’ve introduced this new program in Gann Plan Trading Success 101. It will help you get the right start in the fastest possible time.

You can get the details on this unique approach to learning W.D. Gann’s powerful trading tools and techniques at:

You’re going to learn a lot and have a lot of fun, too. And on top of that, this course will open up unseen forces that can completely transform your trading results.
