Seasonal Cycles and Elemental Influences on Stocks
It was well worth the two weeks taken to prepare fresh PowerPoint slides for my ‘new’ sharing session. I’d a wonderful session yesterday (3 October 2015, Saturday) sharing fresh observations with a different group of audience with a focused objective. 17 people attended the closed-door workshop session on “Seasonal Cycles and Elemental Influences on Stocks.” I organised the workshop to share EON insights to fellow investment course mates. All had one common goal in mind – to understand the seasonal influences to allow them to better their investment decisions. It was a private workshop session and I apologise I did not open the invite to others especially if you’re also a financial investor.
I started the session by introducing various cyclic ‘barometer’ techniques some experts used to identify seasonal stocks and market trends. These techniques are handy and some people might find them practical for today’s investment trends. However, there might be other people finding these as ‘not effective’ today because of changes in behavioural investing attitude and emotional attachment in making quick short-term profits. Less people are embracing the investing thoughts that they’re shareholders, business or venture partners contributing to the company’s growth. Many investment techniques introduced decades back have to be adapted for today’s investment choices, thanks to social media and Internet. Investors can read up on a company’s latest business and financial information (positive or negative news) any time and take action regardless of time zone differences.
I showed special seasonal calendar charts (for U.S. and International markets) with potential entries and exits for different industry sectors. I told the class I was excited when I first got the calendar (through paid subscription services) as there are entry and exit dates listed. After applying my own Elements of Numbers (EON) method to correlate the industries to the seasons, I noted the seasonal calendars were not ‘exclusively special’ after all. Many of my FEN students can easily identify the periodic influences (year, month, and day), and its elements and numbers present. They could then apply their EON knowledge to their financial investment decisions.
I’d posted the “Numerological Predictive Observations 2015” article on 1, January 2015 and told the class this year is a volatile year because of the FIRE elemental influences present. In EON, we can sum up the numbers 2015 as 2+0+1+5 = 8 (Fire). Like the flickering glow of the candle that brightens and darkening parts of the room, or the wave-like (up and down) effects of fire burning, the volatility of stocks prices are strong and present. I’d identified oil as an industry sector that might be affected this year as I associated them as ‘liquid or fluid metal on earth or ground’. There are tendency signs oil prices might rebound any time but on a gradual growth in 2016. Could we see potential peaks (at US$200 per barrel as some oil analysts predicted?) at the later part of 2016 and/or in 2017? Click on the below sample image I’ve attached here for larger view. I’ve listed sample industry sectors like metals, gold, and automobile for 2016.
I also told the class the yearly energies do not ‘enter’ on 1st January and ‘exits’ on 31st December of the year. As the periodic energies are transient and constantly moving, we might be influenced by the following year’s energies around the last quarter of the current year. In simple words, it means we could see signs of 2016 energies influencing us now since we’re at the last quarter of 2015.
You might have read about China stocking up gold, China stock market crisis, Volkswagen and Apple stocks on downtrends, the Glencore issues, and oil prices still at mood swing up and down volatile levels.
Many people assume these events are coincidental. It is not coincidental when you analyse from EON perspectives. There are indicative signs suggesting the industries in key focus (for good or for worse) during that year. After explaining the underlying fundamentals of the year 2015/2016 energies, I shared sample industry sectors we can ‘consider’ for investing with appropriate due diligence. These include industries involved in biotechnology, gynaecology and dental health care, herbal and skincare, agriculture, education, pharmaceutical, technologies, jewelleries, e-commerce and courier services, automobile, and others. While the mentioned industries might be in key focus, we should also not neglect the supporting industries. For example, graphics or memory chip manufacturing companies would financially benefit when their customer’s smartphone and tablet product sales and manufacturing output increases. Here’s another example, companies specialising in providing over-the-air (OTA) software and hardware solutions on automobiles might benefit financially too. In recent months, we see increasing trend for automobile manufacturing companies (like Tesla and GM) providing OTA updates to reduce cost, human resources, and supply chain constraints. These companies can now update software or add new features any time and then send it over-the-air to customer’s cars immediately.
We need to be cautious when investing in stocks, just like the ‘Yin and Yang’ elemental influences. On the positive side, we might see positive news creating upswing growth in the industries associated to the elements of 2016. On the negative side, there might be regular pockets of downswing patterns contributed by short-selling and institutional manipulations.
I’ve also discussed about ‘Behavioural Finance’ that might affect a person’s decision in clicking on the BUY or SELL button. I taught the class how to identify their personal behavioural traits and characters using the Elements of Numbers (EON) method. For example, a person with Birth Root 1 might often use TA (Technical Analysis) to analyse a company’s stocks. A person with Birth Root 4 might often use FA (Fundamental Analysis) to analyse the stocks. All in, I shared and explained the 9 different behavioural numbers that might influence a person’s behavioural finance. I also told the class they should not assume the traits I have mentioned (which they’ve copied down too) are absolutes as we’re only focusing on the root number. There are many other surrounding numbers present in a person’s EON chart. These could influence their behavioural beliefs and habits. There are possibilities the person might prefer using FA or TA (or both methods) to analyse stocks too.
I also showcased some stock investment software that I used to help in my investment decision. These include software displaying optimism-like charts (high/low optimism = sell/buy), and Fourier prediction charts signalling up or down forecast trends on the following trade days. We did case studies on some U.S. and SG stocks and looked at the predictive charts displayed. I sensed excitement in class. They could now use the affordable software tool to help their investment decisions.
I showed a sample Rhythmic Cycle slide of Apple, Inc. I’d shown similar Rhythmic Cycle chart some years back in my previous EON Workshops (conducted before 2013) and in FEN Level 2 (Advanced) course modules (conducted from 2014). I told the class how I’d made the pre-2014 observations there might be potential changes (new product or management) in Apple in 2014/2015 period. You might want to check on my article “CorporatEON Profiling” posted on 11, August 2013.
Many experts have warned about impending financial crisis in 2015. They might be right since no one is 100% accurate in every investment forecast. I then explained the effects of the yearly vibes for 2014, 2015, and 2016. I told the class next year 2016 is a ‘completion’ year and there might be a possibility of financial crisis. We have seen symptoms surfacing in recent months and it might accelerated any time from now (as the incoming 2016 energies are present now) to next 3 or 6 months. There are signs suggesting the impending financial crisis (if it happens) might be furious but short-termed. This could imply the potential impact might not be as bad (especially for those who took preventive measures ahead) as the previous financial crisis in 2007/2008 or 1997/1998 periods. No matter what, many ignorant investors would still be hurt financially. Besides, there are tendency signs suggesting 2017 is a restart or reboot year. Now that I’ve provided basic knowledge on the yearly influence and personal behavioural finance characteristics, I hope the 17 participants (including many other fellow investment course mates who could not attend) could maximise profits whether there is a major financial crisis or not. In many ways, they can take actions to sell or buy and take profits at opportune times. Buy when there’s fear, sell when there’s greed.
Yesterday’s workshop was my first session to educate users on applying the EON method to identify tendency clues to better a person’s financial investment decision. Once you have understood the seasonal cycles and elemental influences that might affect a specific stock, you can include extra ‘checklist’ layer to identify potential stocks based on the EON methods.
From casual feedback after the class, I’m glad I’ve achieve my intent in sharing the session, and I’m glad the investment course mates have benefited too. Over lunch, Wang suggested we conduct a similar session for the public in early November. As a financial investor himself, he is concerned about the financial crisis and wanted others to know too after we analysed the monthly energies of 2016 from my FEON+ software that provided extra clues. I’m OK with his suggestion since I’ve completed the training slides and could share more insights with you at the next session. You might want to send Wang an email (Wang@EON-Inspire.com) to preregister your interest for the workshop. We will announce the workshop details once we have confirmed the details and created the Eventbrite link.
Until then, I wish all my investment course mates happier and profitable times ahead.
