Maria is a market blogger and a financial astrologer who had studied astrology as a hobby for nine years prior to discovering a passion for the markets in 2008. That summer she timed the September 29th crash within a day. Primary market influences are Jesse Livermore and IBD’s Bill O’Neil; thus, she has tailored a financial astrology methodology to fit a growth methodology with an intermediate time-frame. She posts regularly at mariarinehart.com and her work has also been published on TraderPlanet. You can follow her market updates on Twitter.
