1997 Forecast Tracking

The success of a money manager is based upon a combination of skills. Naturally his/her ability to forecast markets and/or select stocks is one of the most important. The bottom line of making money is enhanced by superior forecasting technique, but this alone is not sufficient. Also important are information sources, knowledge of market mechanisms, money management, trading technique etc.

I will be tracking the intermediate and long term stock picks/pans of the Astrologers Fund 1997 forecast here. These as well as our sample short term trades are for demonstration purposes only to show the value of financial astrology. Remember: Always check with your licensed financial advisor or broker before acting upon the recommendations of the Astrologers Fund.
