Commitment of Traders: Sell signal in my new COT indicator

Last year I already wrote about the Commitment of Traders (COT) reports and how they can be applied to improve trading results. I showed that for the S&P500 the Large traders are the ones to watch – because in this market they have the tendency to jump on the train right at the very end […]


Mid-November Low in S&P500

The following charts show how the planetary idicators could help to time the exit of the short position we entered at the quadruple ingress early October. The S&P500 (chart of the index) went  down to the Mars ephemeris line and bounced back the very day Mars had its ingress to Capricorn. Additionally we had a […]

Book recommendation: Timing Solutions for Swing Traders

In this book Robert Lee and Peter Tryde show how financial astrology can be embedded in solid trading approaches without drifting into pseudo-scientific esoteric.

A simple approach to use astro indicators is to wait for situations when several indicators deliver important signals at the same time – and then speculate for something important to happen. Often this ‘something’ is a turn in the markets. But one not forget about the option of a market breaking free. As shown in […]


Indication of Planetary Returns in Tradestation

For several future markets it enumerates the positions of market participants […]


It’s Bradley Time

This weekend the geocentric Bradley indicator has the high for the year. At the same time (not coincidentally) my preferred planetary aspects indicator shows the highest activity since forever. The following chart shows both indicators and the S&P500 which is making new highs. Basically, it can be assumed that such a cluster of aspects will […]

On the Compatibility of the Planetary Indicators to MultiCharts

The Plantary Indicators have been developed in Easy Language (EL) for Tradestation (TS) platforms. Multicharts (MC) is somewhat compatible to the EL intepretation of TS.
