The FAANG stocks (Facebook FB, Amazon AMZN, Apple AAPL, Netflix NFLX, Google GOOG) are the leading technology stocks in the leading index of the US stock exchange.

In this article we will review how the 5_Layer forecast model predicted the long-term period of one year ahead. We will also review how this model was successful in predicting the last 4 months (first 4 months of 2020) amid the COVID-19 market failures.

We will see that the best way to use these forecasts is to have the long-term 1 year forecasts to see the general  trend for the year ahead and to have updates every 4 to 6 months to see the mid and short upcoming term trend changes.

As Cycles-Trader is not a trading machine nor an algo-trading robot, the forecasts are a powerful decision-making tool, however the exact entry and exist days are the trader's decision, probably by using his favorable technical analysis tools.

We prepared a special package for the FAANG stocks for next 12 months (April 2020 to April 2021). Those who will purchase this package will be granted with a 50% discount on any of the forecasts of the 4 and 6 months for FAANG stocks that will be purchased along the year until April 2021.
