    Business Astrology 101 - Weaving the Web Between Business and Myth
    by Georgia Stathis ($39.95 plus shipping).
    For STUDENTS OF ASTROLOGY who wish to explore delineation techniques of Business Astrology, Georgia Stathis presents some observations of 20+ years working with clients.
    BOOK REVIEW BY BILL MERIDIAN: Many times over the last 20 years, people have asked me where to find a basic book to introduce them to the application of astrology to business. I can now recommend "Business Astrology 101" by Georgia Stathis. Georgia explains how astrology can be utilized on many different levels. Business Astrology 101 begins by explaining the basics that the newcomer needs to know such as elements, qualities, solstice points, rulerships, houses and synodic cycles. The last subject is of particular interest in determining longer-term trends. The third section of the book will be of great interest to both the beginner and the experienced astrologer: techniques and strategies. Planning is related to the lunar cycle, and Jupiter and Saturn are related to the career cycle. There is a chapter about reading the horoscope of incorporation, a much-needed addition to the body of knowledge. The case studies are very interesting, such as that of Johnson & Johnson and the Tylenol crisis. Another chapter deals with the real estate cycle and the process of the real estate transaction. Many of the lessons are illustrated in two case studies of two careers. In the appendices, there are worksheets for vocation, corporations, real estate, and annual planning. There is also a business questionnaire to aid the astrologer in focusing on the client's needs and in gathering data.
    The book is very well-written in an easy and alluring style. I found myself gliding effortlessly from page to page. The advice is extraordinary in the sense that it is both practical and still taps into the author's depth in mythology and psychology. Georgia opens up by connecting the fear of growth to Saturn and to Maslow's need hierarchy. Chapter 5 relates the mythological signatures of the planets to the roles that they play in the business world. My feeling when I reached the last page - it was not long enough. I was left with the feeling that Georgia has a lot more to teach us. So we look forward to her next book.

    Detecting High Profit Day Trades In The Futures Markets
    by John T. Jackson. Two Book Set ($69.95 plus shipping)
    J. T. Jackson has merged insider knowledge of floor-trader target price points... with a readily accessible measure of the market's "pent-up energy"... to create an extraordinarily powerful Master Plan Day Trade Strategy. A Day Trade Battle Plan that not only sets you up with the highest probability, high profit day trades out there... but, also lets you sit at home and KNOW which "floor trader price points" will hold (and which won't). And he's brought it all together under one roof in this fascinating new book. Mr. Jackson's original concepts of Zone Analysis has become a Day Trader's tool of value. Based on yesterday's close and today's open, it is now possible to obtain mathematical probabilities of support and resistance areas holding or failing. Based on Statistical Percentages, the 10-year backtest of ALL American Commodity Futures makes this a must if you are a Day Trader.
    The original book was published in 1994. It introduced the creation of distinct time-price zones for each trading day in a market. Data were derived for six periods during each trading day, which permits the application of statistical determinations of Zone Pattern Probabilities. The elements observed are the dynamics of price-level support or resistance and the frequency at which the respective levels are reached. For a detailed explanation of combining zones and probability, close-open patterns, the probability distribution table, and trade selection and placement, refer to the original publication.
    The 2002 update contains descriptions of new areas of interest and expanded uses for the results of Zone Pattern Probability Analysis. This update contains new Probability Tables for 21 domestic markets and 10 major global markets, and covers Zones and Multiple Time Frame Analysis

    By Danton Long
    Mr. Long explains how W. D. Gann traded and forecast future prices on specific dates. The Price Point System is based on W. D. Gann's rather obscure wheel of 24. If you already use Gann's time counts, but find them often off by several days or points, these books are for you. They explain the correct points from which to start your calculations to give the exact future price and date.
    The Basic Price Point System: Gives correct Price Points for all markets. Improves your entry and exit from market positions using Price Points. Use Price Points with simple technical tools or combine them with your own trading system. 123 pages. (was $79.00) $60.00

    The Basics
    By Raymond A. Merriman
    This book is a comprehensive and easily understandable guide on how to apply the study of cycles to enhance trading and investing in financial markets. There is an old saying that "timing is everything" in markets, and knowledge of cycles provides the most useful of all market timing tools. However, market cycles provides more than just a consistent interval of time between two highs or lows. They unfold in well-defined patterns. These patterns enable the trader to know the phasing of any given cycle, and when the market is offering a great, or average, or not-so-great risk/reward possibility. Furthermore, cycles sometimes fall outside the "normal" time band for their expected high or low due to a phenomenon known as "distortion." These patterns, and times of "distortion," can be forecasted as "distortion." These patterns, and times of "distortion," can be forecasted by applying the principles of cycles which are clearly explained and illustrated in this unique book. Raymond Merriman is a professional market analyst and trader. He is the editor of MMA Cycles Report, a market advisory service used by financial institutions, banks, large and small traders, throughout the world since 1981. $37.50

    In the Disciplined Trader, Mark Douglas, an expert on the dynamics of trading, shows why most traders are unprepared for the different - often alien - strategies in the trading environment. The book is divided into four parts: an overview of the psychological requirements; a definition of the problems and challenges; basic insights into what behavior may need to be changed, and how to build a framework for accomplishing this goal; and how to develop specific trading skills based on a clear, objective perspective on market action. $34.95

    By Mark Douglas
    How to Create a State of Mind That Eliminates the Fear, Stress, & Anxiety From Your Trading It is not often that I can confidently recommend a book. "Trading in the Zone" by Mark Douglas is the exception. The subtitle sums up the essence of the book. Some of you may know that after 22 years in the markets I am fully aware of the fact that trading of stocks and commodities is not only a technical but also a mental exercise. This book addresses the psychological attitude that is an absolute must to become a competent and consistent trader. Mark Douglas' previous best seller "The Disciplined Trader" established him as a leader in the field of trading psychology. This new book builds on that specialized foundation, taking the trader by the hand through 7 chapters. From the basic explanation of why we do what we do to defining the problems and finally showing what action you need to take in order to set you on the path to confident trading at a mental level, this book is a winner. "Trading in the Zone" takes off from where "The Disciplined Trader" ended. The book is published by Mark Douglas himself and may appear expensive, but, in fact, it is cheap if you take your trading seriously and want to be here for the long run. $150.00
