About MarketCycle Wealth Management

aust-bio-photoMarketCycle Wealth Management was developed by Dr. Stephen Aust after decades of intense systems analysis and testing. He developed one of the very first Relative Strength Analysis programs in the 1980s (it is still in active use across the globe) and then gradually and methodically developed MarketCycle’s lower-risk, holistic, proprietary investing system. He feels that being an Investment Advisor is one of the few activities that improves with time… the older one gets, the better one gets.

Besides his doctorate (and seeing patients for 25 years) and obtaining certain financial designations, Stephen has passed the examination for the highest level Series-65 financial license.  MarketCycle Wealth Management is a Registered Investment Advisory and unlike brokers and insurance sales people, we have, by law, a fiduciary responsibility to always put our client’s interests first and to adhere to the highest standard of professional competence.  Stephen is also a member of the National Ethics Association. To be a member one must have a clean past and current history as well as no ethics violations.

Stephen Aust has a great love of the outdoors, spent years breeding and working with horses and is the author of the highly rated book: Classical Equitation Simplified. He strives to find a balance in (and to enjoy) all aspects of life. In addition, he is a self described fitness and ‘health-nut’ and spends several hours each day quietly meditating in order to clear his mind of clutter.

Having been raised in Kentucky, he has incorporated the old Kentucky saying into how he manages MarketCycle Wealth Management:  “There is no education in the second kick of a mule.”  This means that if a person doesn’t learn from the first kick, then s/he isn’t going to learn.

Mission Statement

“Our goal is, quite simply, to take the fear out of investing.”


MarketCycle Wealth Management will always give a portion of our profits to charity.


“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
– Michelangelo
