Michael Munkasey Database

Michael Munkasey's work has long been an invaluable asset to the astrological community.

In May 2008, Mr. Munkasey received the Marion D. March Regulus Award for Discovery and Innovation and Research - an award that recognizes those who have developed new tools or concepts to advance the study and practice of astrology.

With great sadness, we have been informed that the cost to continue updates to his database - at an exorbitant amount of approximately $1,300 per month - has resulted in a decision to end to his updates.

The AMEX was purchased by the NYSE last October, and as of March 2, 2009, they have been integrating their web actions and information into the NYSE web site. AMEX data used to be free, but as of March 2, 2009 it charges $300 per month for access to this formerly free data. The NYSE cut off its free data over a year ago and (now charging $500 a month), and the NASDAQ cut off their free data about three years ago (now charging $500 per month).

His work was very, very much appreciated. It will be a tremendous loss for all the financial astrologers of the world.

Michael Munkasey's Company Data will still be able to be purchased on our website, but only with updates through March 2009.
