This book not only shows the historical correspondence of long-term planetary cycles to long-term cycles in the U.S. Stock Market, but also provides an excellent model for investing based upon this knowledge. It combines the market timing techniques of cycles, as explained in Volume 1, with the market timing correlations of geocosmic time bands, to produce a very accurate method of narrowing the probable time band for long-term cycle tops and bottoms in the U.S. Stock Market. An effective investment plan is then described for entering the stock market, to increase one's probability of capturing at least two-thirds of the bull-market move, once the timing criteria are satisfied, in each 4-year cycle.
Since there are a glut of fundamental and technical indicators available – many of which conflict – which do you follow? In other words, how do you react when the employment rate is dropping, but stocks rise to new highs on increased earnings?

Similarly, farmers may substitute between corn, oats, wheat and barley as livestock feed based on price.

What's causing these swift declines in the major indexes? In part, some of the blame lies with concerns over a looming trade war. Recently announced tariffs on steel and aluminum are designed to directly hit China, which generates a substantial annual trade surplus from the United States. Wall Street and investors clearly fear the possibility of retaliatory tariffs, and thus slower global growth.

Limited trading hours help to reduce volatility in stock prices but also limits the liquidity of stocks.
