Section 1 - The Taylor Effect

The Taylor Effect - Nominated in 2000 for a Nobel Prize in Economics:

        The financial market's expansion and contraction is qualitatively in direct correlation to the increases and decreases in gravitational fluctuations experienced at the human level.
        The increases in market price are in direct response to decreases in gravitational forces; the decreases in market price are in direct response to the increases in gravitational forces.

Section 2 - The Discovery

1. What about the random walk theory? Isn't it common knowledge that you can't predict the stock market?
The random walk theory was a "theory". The Taylor Effect is fact. Markets are predictable.

The key word here is "theory." I produced empirical evidence which correlates the stock market with gravitational fluctuations. Market predictions are no longer a theory. The market's future was hard to forecast before my discovery. Now it's predictable.

2. Why is A Random Walk Down Wall Street no longer appropriate?
Malkiel's book is over 30 years old and wrong. I now applied the correct science.

Over thirty years ago Burton Malkiel wrote a best seller titled, A Random Walk Down Wall Street. He observed the apparently random behavior of the American stock markets.

Malkiel did not prove the markets were random, he simply deduced that because he could not discern a pattern, the behavior must be random.

Malkiel's mistake falls under the category of "fallacies of irrelevant evidence." It is an example of argumentum ad ignoratium, or "the appeal to ignorance."  If no one can prove the random walk theory incorrect; therefore it must be correct.

His conclusions also exemplify the argumentum ad verecundiam, or "the appeal to prestige." The fact that learned voices sing does not make their song the truth.

3. Will scientists and 'Wall Street' take you seriously?
Those who use The Taylor Effect and experience the results will. Others won't. Remember, many of the greatest scientists in the world already believe and endorse my findings.

I think it would be important for anyone, professional or individual, to take my discovery seriously. Why would anyone want to be left behind? Then again, there will always be those scientists who refuse to accept it at all.

4. Will it still work if everyone uses it?
Don't worry. There is no chance everyone would believe or use my discovery.

Some will use it to their advantage while others will stick to their old paradigm. History has proven that discoveries which cause paradigm-shifts take a long time to be accepted.

My hope is the Federal Reserve gets the picture in a hurry. I believe if anyone could help manage fiscal matters better, they could by knowing market movements well in advance. We'll see!

5. How do you answer some academics who suggest your discovery is incorrect?
I understand. New paradigms are hard to accept. The earth is round, and we can fly!

Today, we have a new paradigm. The stock market is predictable when you apply The Taylor Effect through modern technology.

6. Your novel has both fiction and reality. Is the discovery real?
Yes, the discovery is real. The story is based on my experiences, but more fun.

The ancient Egyptian box may be fictional, but the discovery is real. The stock market is predictable.

Data rich empirical evidence supports the validity of The Taylor Effect. Gravitational fluctuations do cause masses of humans to feel simultaneously bullish or bearish about the stock market.

7. Is this astrology?
No. None of my studies and none of my documentation involve astrology.

I studied astrophysics, geophysics and fluid dynamics to find answers which guided my conclusions which I present in Paradigm.

8. How do you measure gravity?
Gravity can only be measured one second at a time. I measure the "effects" of gravity.

Oceans and all bodies of water suffer the effects of gravity directly, just as human beings do. We observe these effects in tidal movement which can be measured as far into the future as we care to go. Using these tidal fluctuations is a very effective method to predict gravitational increases and decreases into the future or back to the past.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) produces astronomical measurement algorithms which predict precise tidal fluctuations.

9. Why do gravitational fluctuations cause market changes?
In Paradigm I compare high gravity effects to a "chicken cooking in a pressure cooker."

I addressed this question by suggesting a response to high gravitational conditions as similar to "a chicken cooking in a pressure cooker."

For now, all I am presenting in my essay and book Paradigm is a simple message:
"The financial market's expansion and contraction is qualitatively in direct correlation to the increases and decreases in gravitational fluctuations experienced at the human level."

"The increases in market price are in direct response to decreases in gravitational forces; the decreases in market price are in direct response to the increases in gravitational forces."

10. Does the stock market move up and down the same as the tides?
No. The tides have nothing to do with the stock market or any other financial market.

Remember, gravitational fluctuations affect human behavior. After all, we are made up of over 75% water. Market price fluctuations correlate with changes in the gravitational forces that also create tidal fluctuations in the oceans and seas - as well as people.

11. Does the moon move stock markets?
No, stock market price action correlates with gravitational fluctuations.

Human behavior related to stock market price action correlates with the gravitational fluctuations derived by astrophysics, geophysics and fluid dynamics.

12. Does gravity affect anything other than financial markets?
I believe so. However, my primary focus for 8 years has been on financial markets.

I did some preliminary analysis in a geophysics study concerning geyser frequencies and found these frequencies to correlate with gravitational fluctuations.

Other areas I researched included: criminal behavior; live births; automobile accidents; administration of cancer drugs; individual physical performance; and, retail sales performance. I compared these statistics to gravitational fluctuations and in every case the studies showed correlation and good utility.

13. What are aerospace system identification programs?
They are part of our forecasting program originally made by NASA for space projects.

In Paradigm, Alex Shepard creates stock market forecasting software. He includes aerospace system identification technology.

In reality, I hired world-renowned aerospace scientists to help me write the program which I use today to produce stock market forecasts. It's called Xyber9 (sy-ber-nine).

Xyber9 is a very sophisticated program and it does include aerospace system identification programs to improve accuracy and reduce extraneous data noise.

14. Is your discovery a leading indicator?
Yes. The Taylor Effect is the only leading indicator that forecasts stock market trends.

Other indicators are "lagging" indicators because they rely on statistical analysis of historical data to predict future events.

15. What is a "Phase Inversion?"
Market price can move exactly opposite the trends, but are still predicable.

Long term yearly trends do not invert, nor do mid-term monthly trends. It is only the short term trends that invert. These inversions do not affect the monthly trends or the yearly trends and normally will not affect your investments. Only day traders could be affected by phase inversions.

16. What's next for your Xyber9 stock market trend forecast program?
Xyber9 forecasts will be available to the general public.

I plan to gift a copy of the programs to the Federal Reserve, and two other organizations.

Section 3 - Uses & Applications for The Taylor Effect

1. Will the Paradigm novel help me profit from your discovery?
Yes. This exciting mystery teaches you the basics and how to use the discovery.

Paradigm makes it easy to understand the science behind my discovery. Readers share the excitement with the story's characters - Alex and Nicholas - as they work their way through understanding, developing and trading my discovery.

2. Is it true, nobody can time the market?
Absolutely not! The truth is, all financial professionals try to, but can't. The Taylor Effect is the scientific breakthrough which enables us to effectively forecast market trends.

All financial professionals try to time the market with every decision they make.

Buy, hold and sell recommendations are market timing recommendations. When a company downgrades, upgrades or suggests a neutral position for a stock, they are timing the market.

When a financial advisor suggests allocating 60% to bonds and the rest in a diversified portfolio, they believe it's time you did so. When a financial advisor suggests buying a stock because their firm feels it's a good price, he or she is timing the market.

Clearly, using The Taylor Effect is an efficient way to time the market.

3. How can we take advantage of The Taylor Effect?
Read the book Paradigm and visit our website at

Simply read the book Paradigm, and you'll have a general understanding of why and how The Taylor Effect works. At the back of the book is an Essay and Technical Appendix. They explain in detailed scientific language exactly how the discovery works.

4. Can the discovery benefit individuals?
Yes, anyone can use the market forecasts for their own personal advantage.

Readers can learn to use The Taylor Effect at our website:

5. Do mutual funds use your discovery?
Yes, a Luxemburg corporation will use it in their new fund being created in London.

Release of the discovery is so new I don't believe others have had much opportunity to incorporate it into their trading strategies.

6. Won't your novel upset Wall Street?
No. At first, only a small percentage of people will believe my discovery.

Eventually I can conceive of an environment where The Taylor Effect will become a required tool for the financially informed.

Accurate market trend forecasts were not available until now. Today, investment advisors and individual investors will have an incredible advantage they never had before. Once scientists and financial engineers understand the logic and implications which my discovery presents, I believe they will see its value.

Maybe even the Federal Reserve will take a look!

7. Does The Taylor Effect displace economics as we know it today?
No, it gives economists a better tool to help them complete their picture.

Until The Taylor Effect, no one knew for sure which way, and for how long, the market would move. Now we have the ability to know the direction and duration of the market in advance.

8. Do economics and fundamentals still have a role in market analysis?
Absolutely, my discovery only reveals market direction and duration.

What's missing is the amplitude of the market move. Economists and market analysts help determine how deep or how high the market will move.

9. How far ahead can you predict?
Decades. NOAA produces tidal undulation predictions far into the future and past.

In Paradigm, I give the reader a yearly direction for the stock market to the year 2020. In actuality I can produce accurate predictions up to 100 years in advance.

Monthly forecasts can be predicted for the same time periods as yearly forecasts. But weekly forecasts are different. Reports, politics and news announcements create additional shocks to weekly market trends.

Consequently, I make weekly forecasts four times a month. It allows our Xyber9 program to accommodate for noise and adapt to changing market conditions.

10. What about the 'Buy and Hold' theory?
Now there's a better way. Use my discovery and avoid the "downs." Buy low, sell high.

Use my discovery and avoid the "downs." Past history has shown that if you buy and hold over a long period of time, the stock market will produce a relative return.

My contention is, not everyone has the privilege or the time and staying power to sit through down market periods and watch their hard earned dollars turned into losses while they wait for the market to turn up. Many investors lost enormous amounts of money in the 2000 bust. Many had to go back to work because the markets robbed them of their savings.

I can tell you when down trends are expected so you can stand aside, or invest in bonds during the down trends. Let the brokers buy and hold with their own money, while you insure your future.

11. What about diversification?
I would think that the indexes could provide excellent diversification.

The Dow and the S&P 500 have stocks representing each market sector. In my estimation, these indexes provide diversification and are simple to access.

12. What do you mean by "tax free" investing?
I use my IRA's with my investments to enhance returns, tax free.
First, I do not give tax or legal advice, please seek professional counsel for your situation.

Second, I'll share one of my personal investment strategies. IRA savings earn tax free returns until you withdraw any portion of the investment. You can simply invest your IRA accounts using the forecasts suggested by the Xyber9 program.

I have another strategy that is quite simple. I use S&P 500 futures contracts within my IRA account as a hedge against down trends. When I expect a down market trend, I sell futures contracts to act as a hedge against my stock market securities holdings.

This creates a market neutral position for my account during the down trend. At the end of the down trend, I close my futures short position for a gain.

Since I don't remove any profits from the IRA futures account, I've continued to create a tax free advantage. I calculate the profit from the futures contract and buy more shares of the S&P 500 (SPY named spyders) at the new lower price.

13. Can you forecast currency trends?
Yes. Our program forecasts currency trends as precisely as stock market indexes.

The dollar normally moves opposite the stock market.

With Federal Reserve intervention, the dollar suffers some lead and lag periods compared to stock market highs and lows. Our Xyber9 program reacts to anomalies produced by the Fed's interference with interest rate decisions, and produces very accurate forecasts.

14. Can you forecast the bond market?
Yes. Bond price tend to move opposite the stock market.

Since we know the direction of the stock market, we can forecast the bond price direction.

Section 4 - The Author

1. Your discovery could be considered invaluable. Why are you giving it away?
I would like to win the Nobel Prize; to do so, others need to understand my discovery.

I was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2000. World renowned scholars say it's a breakthrough worthy of the prize which I would like to win. For this to happen, others must know and understand my discovery.

2. If it's so good, why aren't you rich?
I am. I beat the DOW by 31%, the NASDAQ by 82.5%, the S&P by 40% since Jan. 2000.

I was financially successful long before I began my work to develop The Taylor Effect. And, I apply the discovery to my investments so my wealth continues to grow daily.

As a legacy, I trust there could be some brilliant revelations developed from my discovery.

3. What got you interested in all of this?
It was a paper by J. M. Hurst about unknown drivers that might influence market cycles.

In 1987 I read a paper written by J. M. Hurst, a retired aerospace physicist. He spent some 20,000 hours analyzing economic time-series using tools from his career in research and development.

Hurst theorized the existence of an unknown exogenous or external factor that was actually driving market cycles. He called it "X motivation."

Hurst said, ". . . we must admit the possibility that something causes millions of investors operating from widely differing locations, making countless buy and sell decisions, at varying points in time, to behave more or less alike  --  and to do so consistently and persistently!  How can this be?"

He went on, "The answer to this is not known, although reasonable theories can be formulated. If such an exogenous driver can influence some physical and mental functions, might they not influence others -- perhaps causing masses of humans to feel simultaneously bullish or bearish in the market, for example?"

Hurst's "X motivation" is what I now know today to be gravity. As Einstein noted, "gravity and electromagnetic radiation are the two major forces known in the universe."

4. Is this book about Robert Taylor?
Yes. The story is fiction, but the science is a true story about my discovery.

Every thought process and action Nicholas and Alex went through while producing the software programs and trading theories were processes I experienced.

I visited many of the places they visit and went through the same experiences they did. Although, I have to admit, Nicholas and Alex are younger, taller and probably a lot more fun to visit with.

5. Do you use your own program?
Yes. We finalized the Xyber9 forecasting program in 1996 and I've used it ever since.

I knew the market would reach high points in January of 2000 followed by lows in 2002. I knew the market would regain highs in 2004 so I was able to make profitable investment decisions with each trend.

6. Have you lost money in the market?
Yes, before I completed my research and during some testing of trading applications.

It wasn't until the last couple of years that I finally discovered the most obvious details concerning longer term trend applications. After all, Edison went through a lot of light bulbs before he made one work. And, Alfred Nobel blew up many things before he discovered how to control nitroglycerine with his invention of dynamite.

7. Has a lack of formal education in the scientific arena caused you a problem?
No and I don't think that it hurt da Vinci, Galileo, the Wright brothers, Franklin, or Marconi much either.

Formal education does not seem to be a prerequisite for successful discovery. A few examples include: Edison, da Vinci, Galileo, Franklin, Marconi, Henry Ford, the Wright brothers and Bill Gates.

I've always been able to hire the best minds in the world to help solve problems. My decision not to earn additional degrees in science may have helped me to think outside the box and facilitate my discovery.

8. What are you future plans?
I am finishing a sequel to Paradigm and I have three more books to write.

9. What is the Paradigm mystery story?
An exciting suspense about two brothers who discover an ancient Egyptian box, and make a fortune. Then the owners find out!

Paradigm is a fictional story about a box which measures gravity and accurately predicts the stock market. Very old papers in the box confirm fortunes made over centuries. The brothers use this knowledge to trade the market and produce a fortune in just a few months.

Owners of the box are after them. One brother is killed while the other is left to track down the killers. He and his wife race through Europe chasing leads found in London, Paris, Venice, and the Vatican itself.
