The GPS-Mantic-trading algorithm roots contemporary astro-trading in ancient earth bound geomantic practice (divination from the configuration of a handful of earth or random dots), whilst updating the celestial sphere to include the complex movements of man-made Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites.

Trades will be judged by complex, age-old geomantic derivations of the physical and technical parameters of the four GPS satellites positioned at the trading moment in the sky above the computer running the trading software (using either a local GPS receiver or an online tracking resource). GPS-Mantic-trading submits trading flows to ancient earth-coded practice, inviting parallels between heavenly satellite perturbations and the fluctuations of the Stock Market.
