Is it really ground breaking work, opening new territories? Backcover mentions "How to decipher the trading code in W.D.Gann Strangest book". Exciting ! Let's take a deeper look into the "dense jungle of complexity" that this book is supposed to be.
The first few pages are about Mercury in the natal chart. No big deal but OK to read.
Page 39-58 throw a few horoscopes of some financials events (including the Euro), with a few lines of explanations on each. Nothing struck me as particularly noteworthy.
Page 59-77 show some wildly random angles (24°, 96°, 218°) between Mercury and other planets (including nonexistent ones, created by Witte and followers to account for events he could not explain, starting with timing of the bombing when he was in the trenches), supposedly indicating when the market will top or bottom. We have to take the author's words for granted, because just a few examples are provided over a short span of time.
Page 79-104 are about Mercury Retro and its effect on people and world events, interesting, but not exactly new material.
Page 105-128 show some stats (over which period ?) about the world indexes behavior during Mercury Retro. Any trader careless enough to use any of that to enter or exit the market will go broke quickly: "53.1% chances that SP500 will trade higher within 1 day after Mercury Retro in an air sign"... hey, what about flipping a coin ?
Page 129-194 show a First trade chart of each the Dow 30, with some stats (over which period ?) about the stock behavior during Mercury Retro. Any trader silly enough to use any of that to enter or exit the market should be locked: "66% chances that ATT will trade higher within 1 day after Mercury Retro in a water sign"...right....
Page 195-222 are the most interesting, on the Sun-Mercury conjunction repetition, although this was flagged by Jeanne Long in 1993 in the book "Universal Clock".
The book practically stops at page 223, although it has 278 pages, the final 50 pages being some Ephemeris data extracts that anyone can get from Solar fire and a bit of spreadsheet skills.
Is there a need to say more ?
I have known Tim Bost for over 6 years now. He, indeed, is not only a good friend but also a man of integrity and high knowledge. I speak that with my own interaction with him, initially as client, then as a friend. Over the years, I have come to discover that he really puts his heart and passion into what he does. He might take more time than expected of him, but when he returns with his product, it is well-worth a wait, a true GEM. So is his book....., Mercury, Money and the Markets.
Tim Bost has done splendiferous job in writing this book. I am an avid reader. Those who know me and like my work, are familiar that I bring my knowledge based upon tons of reading from hundreds of books, on financial markets, market forecasting and analyses.
Mercury is one of my favorite methods and tools used in markets prediction. As a matter of fact, I get more revelations and discoveries during the Mercury Retrograde periods than any other time during a year. Therefore, when I saw the topic, I was thrilled and could not wait to see what is inside the book.
Upon reading book, it literally blew my mind. During my research within last few years, I have been stumped on few things, where I could not nail the reason of any inversion or failure of a time cycle to create a reversal. This book had solved that mystery for me. The concept discussed in this book, of Mercury Prometheus and Epimetheus, was not foreign to me, but I have not seen anyone use it as an astro-trading technique. Tim Bost is "THE First One" to articulate it in a layman language. Tim verbalized it so superbly on page 24 " When we add a consideration of whether Mercury is retrograde or direct to our evaluation of astro-trader natal Mercury as Mercury Prometheus or Epimnetheus, we can further refine our understanding" He states further very precisely, that it can empower or inhibit our effective performance in the markets." He elaborates, by adding several examples of natal horoscopes of different traders and investors and first trade charts of several stocks and events.
Tim Bost illustrates secret trading techniques of legendary traders how they used Mercury for timing the financial markets. As a matter of fact, Tim Bost deciphers what legendary traders used, but did not share with the investment and trading public, how the legendary masters applied Mercury in their trading.
This book helps you, if you are an astro-trader, to understand the exceptional impression of Mercury within your natal horoscope, and how to time your success by the use of your natal Mercury placement along with other planetary influences in the chart. You shall learn guidelines to time the markets correctly based upon planetary cycles.
For an astro-trader, this book is a treasure box with wealth of information on Dow Jones Industrial 30 stocks and how to invest these DOW-30 stocks using Mercury techniques, taught in this book. Plus you shall find this book as handy reference again and again for your astro-trading techniques and for unique cross-indexed Mercury Station ephemeris for next 201 years, which you cannot find anywhere else.
