If you want to gain the full astro-trading advantage as you engage with the markets, it’s vital that you look not only at the role that Mercury plays in the markets you are trading, but also at the way that Mercury functions in your own individual horoscope.

Commodities and futures: the optimal use of leverage. Incorporating Candlestick signals into commodities and futures trading is of vital impor-tance. Knowing when and where the shift occurs in bullish and bearish sen-timent for leveraged investment vehicles is essential for successful trading. To foresee the potential change in price direction produces outstanding trad-ing profits. This is not pie-in-the-sky rhetoric. The Candlestick methodol-ogy was developed for the purpose of exploiting profits from commodities trading. Four hundred years of proven results came about through trading rice. Putting the signals to use in fast-reacting markets is not new for Candlestick analysis. It is probably safe to say that Candlestick analysis is the oldest technical trading method in the history of investment markets. Its use has delivered unrivaled results for the Japanese rice trading houses for centuries. It is the ideal method for increasing profits on its own merits or for being overlaid onto existing successful trading programs. The combi-nation of Candlestick reversal signals is the perfect complement to existing proven trading programs. Overlaying the two methods can be a useful fil-tering process for reducing and/or eliminating bad trades.

Over the years the question of whether the Andrews lines and rules can be used in conjunction with Elliott wave to locate the popular third wave has come up several times. Third waves are popular with Elliott wavers because they often result in long and strong moves. In this article you will see that it is possible and that using the earlier – 1970 era Andrews rules (verses the stuff on the web) makes it much easier. We will examine the two stock trades that were written about, before the orders were placed, in the Andrews Email group this year.

The great Masters, the writers of the Scriptures, Talmud, Koran, Confucius, Buddha, Cicero, Livy, as well as Shakespeare, Goethe, Nietzsche and others (except Luther) propound in their writings nothing but ways and means to forecast future events. All these writings are in “Code Form” so that the public can’t understand a word. They study “the surface” and like it. They eat the shell. With this book on hand you may try for the nut proper. All you will have to do is to substitute various motions of the planets given here for the names found in these books. After a while you can actually see how these persons in the stories “wander around” through the Zodiac. Yes, there were many before us, who know the laws and knew them well! They were able to fool the public several thousand years already and this work should throw some light into their stories.

The Resistance Levels given below are based upon natural law and can be applied to the measurement of both Time and Space. Around these points stocks meet resistance going up or down or traveling the same number of points from a top to a bottom. Tops and bottoms of major and minor movements come out on these Resistance Levels.

Each time I have written a book. this eing my third, I always remember one of my first teachers in the art of speculation. Dave Nelson was an old time trader when I first met him in 1971 and he remained one of my closest friends and confidants until his death. He once told me that the market will always tell you where it is going to go and usually how fast it will make the trip.

Now, will turn from an examination of the general principles of the Law Of Vibration, as discerned from W.D Gann’s interview to the “Ticker And Investment Digest,” to an examination of the key steps in its practical application. These key steps in the practical application of Gann’s Law Of Vibration are as follows.
1. Identify the point in time that marks the start of an uptrend or downtrend. This can be achieved by examining the daily, weekly or monthly price chart of the stock or commodity.

When I first began trading more than five decades ago, I was told by one of my mentors that trading was a journey, not a destination. Those words have been emblazoned on my brain since that time. The library I’ve accumulated over the past years has just about everything published, as well as many things not published, and I’m still learning. But, my first experience with technical analysis was when I was in graduate school and one of my professors had some large charts of US Steel, Corn, Soybeans and General Motors posted on his office wall. Each day, he’d mark these little bars on his charts with notations. The class was always curious as to why he did this. It would be years before I would understand the significance of his daily ritual.

Price actions of various stock issues and commodity contracts have many elements in common in spite of the fact that the individual charts often look dramatically different. This is known as the Principle of Commonality. It is this principle that makes the methods taught in this course applicable to all negotiable equities on all of the markets of the world. There are seven elements to the Principle of Commonality. These seven elements will be discussed individually in the following material. The most fundamental element of commonality is the fact that all price movements of all stocks and commodities consist of a combination of the same number and kinds of single price waves. This is known as the Principle of Cyclicality and is an element of Commonality. It is this principle that makes possible a degree of prediction of the time of occurrence of price reversals and the extent of the subsequent price move.

Earlier I mentioned that trend was defined by a pattern of higher bottoms and higher tops for an up trend, and a pattern of lower lows, and lower highs for the downtrend. This is true even on the most minute tape reading scale since horizontal support and resistance levels tells us where the buyers and sellers are. Angles are a form of straight line moving averages which estimate momentum and normally an angle suggests where buyers or sellers should be, based on a charts price movement momentum. Note, however, that angles per se do not show actual support and resistance like the patterns on a bar chart, and therefore must be used only as an estimate to be verified with trading bars occurring at the same level.
