Kris’ note: If you know the Moon guides the tides…
And solar flares millions of miles away can affect electricity grids on Earth…
If you know – according to NASA – that “a solar eclipse can have a noticeable impact on the structure and dynamics of Earth’s upper atmosphere – the ionosphere…”
And all of this is scientifically proven. It’s not “old wives’ tales” or other superstitions…
So, if all of this is true, is it so unbelievable to think the actions and reactions of other heavenly bodies can, in their own way, affect life and action on Earth?
We’ll admit that when we first came across the work of Mason Sexton, we were skeptical.
It just didn’t seem credible. What’s more, ever since entering the financial publishing industry in 2005, we have always been told to be skeptical.
We encourage you to be skeptical too. Don’t believe anything from anyone until they prove it to you beyond all of your reasonable doubt.
You should interrogate the ideas presented to you and assess the evidence for them.
And so, having done exactly that these past 10 months… and having seen Mason’s results in a non-trending market… we have zero doubts about the soundness of his analysis.
As ever, you should make up your own mind. We introduce ideas to you because we believe in them. But it’s still up to you to decide for yourself.
But we point out this has been a non-trending market because that’s important to be aware of when analyzing Mason’s results.
He’s produced results that can’t possibly be a matter of luck.
He hasn’t backed the “leading horse” in a race that is nearly over… or touted bull market stocks in a bull market… or bear market disaster stocks in a bear market.
This year, the market has switched, turned, trended, and then reversed seemingly on a dime. And each time, Mason has used his methodology – a methodology that uses non-standard indicators and signals – to play the market.
These non-standard indicators (put simply) can be based on numbering patterns, celestial or astrological movements, and even based on Bible passages.
A person reading such things should be skeptical. It is only natural to be so. But skepticism is fine only up to a point. If proof emerges that the method works, the reader must surely lower their skepticism and admit to its accuracy.
It has a track record with a 60.5% win rate on closed trades. That’s 23 winners from 38 trades. And during a time when the overall market hasn’t trended one way or the other.
In today’s Daily Cut, we share a guest essay from Mason Sexton. He doesn’t go into the detail of what is behind his research. We’ve done that, in part, for him.
But be clear. What you will read below – his background, his predictions, his track record, and feedback from those who follow his analysis – is all based on the methods we have touched on today.
Next week, Mason is hosting an event where he’ll go into detail on his methods. He’ll show you how you can join the others who continue to profit from his trade recommendations… And put his next big prediction on your radar so you can prepare. Go here to sign up.
Then read on. Judge for yourself. And most of all, we encourage you to listen more to what Mason has to say.
Before we get to Mason, a quick rundown of today’s market action.
The S&P 500 closed up 1.6% to end the day at 4,415.24… the Nasdaq gained 2.1%, to close at 13,798.11.
For individual stocks, Microsoft closed up 2.5% to $369.67… Apple ended higher by 2.3% at $186.40… and Tesla ended the day at $214.65, a 2.2% gain.
In commodities, West Texas Intermediate crude oil trades at $77.26… gold is $1,940.40 per troy ounce… and bitcoin is $37,365.46.
And now, over to Mason Sexton…
I remember it to this day…
In my Long-Term Forecast 1985-1992, published in early 1985, I predicted that “in 1987, the stock market will enjoy its biggest rally in history.” The Dow Jones opened the year at 1,908 points. At the peak, two months before the crash, it was at 2,722 points.
People often forget the tremendous stock market rally of 1987. They only remember the crash. As it happens, I predicted that, too.
In an interview I had on August 14, 1987, I told CNN (emphasis added):
What we think will happen is that we’ll get an important top somewhere around August 24 or 25.
If I had to guess the final top, it would be the first or second week of October. When I say, the final top, that would precede a correction of 15% to 20% ‘minimum’ in the [Dow].
On August 20 of that year, I repeated my warning. When I was interviewed by the New York Post, I said:
We are seeing a top in the stock market in a generational sense.
As it happens, the Dow Jones topped out at 2,722 precisely on August 25 of that year. It was the all-time high for 1987. And it was a level that the Dow would not see again until two years later in August of 1989.
I’m sure many of us remember what happened next…
On Monday, October 19, the Dow Jones collapsed by 508 points, or 22.6%. It was, and remains to this day, the worst one-day drop for the index in percentage terms. Black Monday had arrived.
Of course, it’s one thing to make a prediction. It’s something else to follow through and tell people exactly what to do.
That’s what I did.
On October 2, 1987, I advised clients of my Harmonic Research newsletter “to sell all stocks.” Six days later on FNN (the precursor to CNBC), I advised investors to “Buy puts on the S&P index… short IBM, GM, PA, XON, and CHV.”
I don’t retell this story to bring up bad memories for those of us who were around for the crash.
But we must understand what’s at stake…
Investors who were prepared for the crash could have made a fortune. In fact, I later had a client brag about how her traders had turned $100,000 into $13 million over a few weeks by following my research.
But for those who were blindsided by the crash, it was devastating…
Four Decades of Market Forecasting
My name is Mason Sexton. For the better part of four decades, I have made a career for myself forecasting the precise movements of the markets.
I began my career on Wall Street after graduating from Harvard Business School in 1972. I spent three years in the Corporate Finance Department of Morgan Stanley. I did a stint with Salomon Brothers in M&A. Then, I headed the Sales and Research Department of Mabon Nugent & Company.
In March of 1984, I founded Harmonic Research, a bi-monthly newsletter for institutional clients that specialized in making uncanny, specific predictions for the market. The story above was based on my research with Harmonic.
Earlier this year, I came forward and launched New Paradigm Research. My goal was to share my unique forecasts and trade recommendations with everyday investors.
And we’ve been off to a phenomenal start…
Predicting the Top
In May of this year, I told my readers that:
Ninety days from the May 1 high puts us into late July. That would imply a trend change could well be underway by then. And it is highly likely that the first “warning signs” would begin to appear earlier that month. This suggests the beginning of a possible severe correction ahead that should be evident by no later than mid-July, 2023.
Were we to pick a precise date, we would select July 12 as the most likely “kickoff” for this decline. At first, there will be much “rationalizing” of the downturn. But by July 17–18, the coming correction will be more difficult to ignore. And by the end of that month, it will be impossible to ignore.
When that research was published in late May, it must have seemed contrarian, even a bit crazy. Not anymore…
The broader indices did peak in mid-July. Interestingly, the Nasdaq peaked precisely on July 18. As we write, The Dow Jones has declined by as much as 9%. The S&P fell by as much as 10%. And the Nasdaq is off by as much as 12%.
The most popular stocks of 2023 have fared even worse since the July trend change.
Nvidia (NVDA): -17.3%
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD): -26.24%
Tesla (TSLA): -32.3%
It’s also not a coincidence that some of the biggest losers since the July peak have been among our favorites to short, which we have done successfully, and repeatedly, in recent months. And our readers have had consistent opportunities to profit.
What you do is IMPOSSIBLE. I am just glad that nobody ever told you that. I have profited greatly from your recommendations. In just two months, this is beyond believable. I pray that you live long and prosper!!!

Mason, you are far better than AI. I started last month following your suggestions gingerly and most or all seemed to hit it on the nose. Recently, I have been betting more heavily on your suggestions.
In the last month, I have benefitted from your research to the extent of about $30,000 in a portfolio of just $180,000. You have me for life. I can’t wait for each missive from you.
– Ted B.
I share all this simply to show you that incredible returns are possible even in the most unforgiving of markets. But you must have an insight into what’s coming down the line.
That’s why I’m hosting a special event on Tuesday, November 14, at 8 p.m. ET. During the event, I will share my next prediction. I’ll also detail precisely when I believe it will start, and what investors can do to prepare.
If you are at all curious, then I would ask you to join me on that date: Tuesday, November 14, at 8 p.m. ET. You can reserve your seat with one click right here.
