Cycles Analysis & Pattern correlations Asset Management


Investment management based on the market timing method

For those who want their investment portfolio to flourish during economic growth;
but also want to be able to protect against periods of economic adversity



Financial astrology as a measure of stock market climate

The Market timing method has been developed from historical data research that shows cyclical behaviour of financial markets and products. Supplemented with the found correlation with natural planetary cycles, it forms an analysis method that can forecast future market behavior. Examples are: the decades ahead of the Great Recession as of 2008, the Crude oil bubble of 2008 and the fall in stock markets until March 2020.

Historical research into stock market data has shown that they tend to move in recurring cycles and patterns. Follow-up research shows a weighted correlation between market events and cycles of planets. This data on historical market behavior is the basis of the market timing method and is complemented by fundamental and technical analysis.


Investments in the CAPS investment strategy are made on input from MMA market analyst Irma Schogt with back-up from another MMA analyst from Switzerland and executed for clients at Today’s Group, Netherlands.



The CAPS investment strategy is a 'Special' at Today's Group, professional Asset Management Firm in The Netherlands. If you have little time to follow the financial markets yourself, want to protect your investments against economic downturns or want to diversify your investments, then this service is perfect for you.



Defensive trend following strategy

For long-term defensive investing, we follow the long-term trend, whether it is rising as it usually does, or falling. If there is a change in trend from positive to negative, we can adjust our position in order to take protection during the downtrend phase and/or achieve a return during the downtrend phase.




The range of investments

An investment portfolio is made up of the following categories

  • well-traded funds, shares and large stock exchanges such as in Europe and America;
  • precious metals and other commodities or related shares/funds
  • currencies, as an investment as well as to hedge any currency risk
  • some equities in sectors with good growth prospects
  • interest and bond-related products




Example of purchase in 2018

CAPS uses the knowledge from astrology to select the best performing sectors. One share that we bought in 2018 is World Wide Wrestling Entertainment: this share increased in value by more than 50 percent within 1 year.


Example purchase 2022

In mid-October 2022, NVIDIA stock was purchased just after the bottom around $118-119. On the day of the explosion on May 25, 2023 to above $300, over 150 percent profit was taken on this position. The remainder of the investment quickly rose to >$400-$500 and to even above $600.


Example purchase 2023

March 2023, just before Pluto went into Aquarius and the start of the tech boom, the shares we bought are of Google and Microsoft. Looking back early 2024 these positons moved up respectively >63 and > 48 percent. Not bad at all.
