Financial astrology. Yep, it exists. Traders and investors have been using the science behind the stars to predict pricesand market movement for centuries. But is there really a correlation between the planets and your profits? Surprisingly, yes. Certain planets have been known to negatively affect how markets perform, giving investors an upper hand on when to get in (and out) of an asset. So, how do you start making out-of-this-world investments? Learn from Susan Gidel!

With decades of experience as a journalist and marketing executive working for trading publications, Susan’s life revolved around the market. After years of working with successful investors and stock traders, she started to see patterns in price movement that conveniently coincided with astrological changes. She dug in deeper, finding that the stars, moons, planets, and signs affect not only the tides but traders too.

Even if you’re an astrological skeptic, Susan brings some surprising stats about stocks, index funds, and the signs. But that’s not all; Susan has reason to believe that a big recession could be headed our way and that real estate investors must pivot their investing strategy to a new type of property. Don’t know what the signs are signaling? Stick around to find out!
