Stan, I purchased your materials a few years ago and just recently stumbled on your trading stuff. I've spent about the last ten years very seriously researching Geometric, Astrological and other esoteric techniques for analyzing the Markets.
I'm laughing over how funny it is that besides being infatuated with the Markets, I'm also a bit of an adventurer and lost city fanatic - interests we have in common. Perhaps they're all related somehow.
Anyways, the simplicity and obviously sincere care that has gone into your system has me intrigued. I know what tends to work in the Markets, and your system looks good - although that's hard to judge without knowing what your indicators are really based-on.
I trade using daily bars on commodities such as Corn and Currencies.
I'd like to know how I can duplicate your indicators and methodology to experiment and test on the Markets I trade.
I'd also like to know more about the logic behind your indicators. Are they Moving Averages or based on Planetary movements or relationships or Geometry (such as your Octagon) etc.?
I've narrowed Market Geometry and Astrological Energy to relationships involving the number 3(6, 12, 144, etc.) the Hexagon, the Square Roots of 2, 3, and 5, and, of course PHI.
There are many, many other ways to analyze and determine "Energy Windows" in the Markets - and perhaps you've stumbled on something useful! I'm always open to learning.
Stan, please let me know what other info you can provide or what I need to do to find out more details.
Thanks and regards,
Stan's response: By your message, I can tell that you are a very experienced esoteric market analyst. It is a pleasure to hear from you Greg.
We have a lot in common, including the interest in adventures and lost cities. In my opinion, there is a huge connection between astro-archaeology and the behavior of all free-trading markets. I'll explain...
The ancients were passionate about observing the heavens and calculating the movement of the stars and constellations. They were total experts at it and often oriented their buildings and even entire cities around key angles using exact proportions. (As you mentioned Greg, PHI was/is perhaps the most important proportion of them all.) Why did the ancients go to so much trouble?
All of the great archaeological sites we find on earth are directly connected to the stars. The Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, Baalbeck, Tiahuanaco and Easter Island are only a few of the many sites that are astronomically oriented.
To take it one step further, all of these sites are actually connected/oriented to each other by astronomical mathematics. I promise, this isn't just my own opinion, it is well documented. Carl Munck is one of the great pioneers in this field.
Sounds almost too fantastic to be true, doesn't it? How can this be? Why is it so? There is so much going on in our world that we don't even know about. This all seems quite esoteric to most people. It is probably almost boring to certain "masters" out there.
Interestingly, the origin of all of these mathematical connections is found in the great universe itself. One good book entitled, The Matrix of Creation by Heath, clearly illustrates the Sacred Geometrical and Harmonic Mathematical structure of the universe. It is all quite amazing.
I believe that in the distant past, there were very advanced civilizations that understood the importance of all of these angles, proportions, connections and cycles. Unfortunately, that advanced knowledge has been largely lost to our “modern”, general population. However, I believe this knowledge is extremely important in successfully managing our planet Earth. I believe we will see some serious rearrangements and downsizing in 2012 due to poor management.
Our planet is full of combinations of perfectly running natural cycles. They are everywhere. They affect us far more strongly than we probably imagine.
Free-trading markets are simple mirror reflections of our emotions of fear and greed, en masse. Those collective emotions run in cycles because they are affected by the natural cycles.
Unfortunately for us market traders, we, as humans, are bombarded by many different natural cycles, all at the same time. If it were just all one big cycle, the markets would be so easily predictable, something like a simple sine wave. But they are not. They appear to be a “random walk” from an uninformed perspective.
If a person could sort out the important cycles and add them all up, and then average them all out in real-time, that person could successfully predict the stock market, for example. When stock market cycles of different lengths (or periods) fall into harmony with each other at the same time, strong price moves result. When various length cycles are mixed and conflicted, the result is a sideways movement.
I have invented a technical indicator that calculates and follows the dominant period of several different cycles together in real time. I call it the Mars line. That is the heart of our Trading System and that is how we make a profit each and every week in 4 different markets. I explain all of this in detail in my free e-book, Achieve Astronomical Market Wealth in 2010.
Sorry for the long explanation Greg. Please let me know if you have more questions for me.
