Cycles Analysis & Pattern Recognition

Cycles analysis is the result of extensive research into financial market history. It shows that markets (equities, commodities, currencies, etc.) do not just move randomly but in recurring cycles and patterns. Further research showed that these "cycles" are often accompanied by certain patterns in graphs, geocosmic and fundamental events.

This investment portfolio is managed by Irma Schogt, MMTA graduate and asset manager at Today's Asset Management. Schogt collaborates with a market analyst and fellow-MMTA graduate based in Switzerland.

Main policy CAPS

The aim is to invest in financial markets that are showing signs of long-term growth, where our leading indicators are confirmed. Whether in good or bad times, there are always markets to which this principle can be applied. Depending on the behaviour of the market, it is determined how long a position can be held before looking forward to another investment.

CAPS Portfolio is a 'Special' at Today's Asset Management. At Today's, your assets are managed entirely on your behalf from €250,000 onwards. If you have no knowledge, interest or time to follow the financial markets yourself, this service is very suitable for you.


We focus on finding the best investments in:


  • funds and large stock exchanges, such as those in Europe and America;
  • a small number of shares in the sectors where the greatest growth is expected;
  • currency, as an investment for profit and to hedge exchange rate risks arising from other positions;
  • 2-5 commodities and/or related shares/listed funds



Trendfollowing strategy

Part of an investment position is held to benefit from long-term growth, as long as our leading indicators confirm this. When an increase (in relation to history) is nearing its end or reaches its greatest potential, it is possible to disengage in part or in full. If the market then has completed the expected correction and gives indications of purchaseability, it can be bought back. Ideally, we invest where we find the strongest indications as "evidence" of potential growth.


CAPS cares for and gives back to nature

There is little that can make a person more happy than by giving. CAPS returns part of its income to the nature that keeps our world livable. Projects to support nature in all its facets can count on our support.

Investors will choose which projects receive our financial support. For example, for a greater enjoyment of life and living, we give children and young people a guided nature experience to build a bond with nature. Investors can also put forward their own ideas and suggestions for projects that support nature on earth and a natural environment.
