                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses

We will be sending ALERTS to subscribers with specific dates when there are imminent trading opportunities forming. The last one is posted below this post. There was a second ALERT sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th covering most of the critical dates in September

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 8th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

The big move down during the week of Aug 17th makes it difficult to determine where we are in the nominal 18 week cycle. We know we are in the 8th week but was the low on Aug 24th the trough for the first nominal 6 week cycle of the 18 week cycle. Quite possible, but with such violent action we could see a 1/2 Primary cycle. I'm expecting a further pullback.

Pullback or not this cycle is still very bearish. It stared on July 7th and put in a crest on July 20th. This is very left translated and very bearish.

Two weeks ago we made the point, the Sun was about to begin it's translation of a T-square beginning on Aug 21 with the Sun in waning square to Saturn. In this case Saturn was the focal point of a T-square between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Jupiter and Neptune may point to confusion but remember Saturn is still in Scorpio, debt and other peoples money and continues in mutual reception with Pluto, making both stronger. We may be hearing more news of debt problems or confusion surrounding debt or financing This configuration could also be pointing to violent weather. Saturn leaves Scorpio this month and goes into Sagittarius. This is better stated, karmic Saturn enters spiritual Sagittarius this month. Saturn will lose some strength as it will no longer be in mutual reception with Pluto.

The Sun's translation of this powerful T-square continued with the Sun conjunct Jupiter on August 26 and then Sun opposition Neptune on August 31st. Aug 31 or Sept 1 should be a time period for deception, trickery, lies and fakes. I'm looking at the next period of time to continue being volatile. At this point, I look at next week as being very volatile with the possibility of more sharp down moves although this may be later in the month.

 There is also a perigee Full Moon on August 29th. Beyond the markets the perigee (closest pass to Earth) Full Moon can be a time of severe weather, earthquakes / volcanoes and general violent actions. This  Full Moon is very close to the Jupiter / Neptune opposition. Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules. It rules water and crude among other things. This Full Moon emphasizes water. The forming hurricane or other storm may be the cause of a great deal of water damage via flooding.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines. We'll come back to this chart when the markets settle down.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October low. More details for subscribers.



Violent events continue.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.
DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on May 26th
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015  50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
RUT               Jun 23, 2015
COMPQX      July 20, 2015

Another chart is the following daily chart of the SP500 with a fan indicator. The dark blue fan line is 45 degrees. The starting point is the low at March 6, 2009. The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2126. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time. This is another bearish indicator.



And I've been waiting for this weekly chart of the SP500 with the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages to turn for some time. Another bearish indicator. The last time price broke this far below the moving averages it was October 2011 which many have picked as the 4 year cycle low. Is this the next 4 year cycle low forming? It's quite possible.



Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn was in mutable signs, the colored x's. As mentioned above Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this month.



In Summary
The expected down turn started and was more severe than anticipated. Such a move in a few days should result in volatile environment, for some time. This should be a great environment for those who enjoy short term trading, like me. {^_^}. The dates where the Sun will again translate the T-square mentioned above are prime candidates for volatility. Again they are Aug 26th and Aug 31st. All dates are +- 2 td's unless otherwise noted. The perigee Full Moon on August 29th is also very close to the forming Jupiter / Neptune opposition.

An Alert has been sent to subscribers with specific dates when big moves are most likely to occur in September.

4 year  6.5-7 year
See the following weekly chart of the DJIA. The red squares are the Jupiter Saturn waning square, 3 pass. The green squares are the Saturn Neptune square. They overlap and could be pointing to a period of dramatic change. Other items noted on the chart are Saturn in Sagittarius, the time frame for the 3.3 year Kitchin cycle trough and the next Primary cycle trough. I look to the periods of overlap to determine more major market moves. I bring this up since I think there will be a stronger down move late in 2015 or early 2016.




Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th.

We are either in the first nominal 6 week cycle or just put in the trough for the first 6 week cycle on Aug 27 or we are still in the first cycle which will turn out to be a 1/2 Primary cycle crest.

I'm looking at this as still being in the first nominal 6 week cycle. We may have further to go down.
With the currency wars heating up Gold should eventually benefit. This may not be until  the next 18 week cycle trough, that is late 2015 / early 2016. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. I'm expecting a pullback.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold started moving up when it hit the 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical line). It moved up sharply but has since turned down. The next 27 cd cycle is Sept 2nd.




Crude
This coming week of Aug 31st we should be entering the 24th week or the first of a nominal 18 week cycle which started Mar 18, 2015.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. We are very late in the older nominal 18 week cycle at 24 weeks. This currently looks like a nominal 18 week cycle low on Aug 24th. We will need to see further price action next week.



As seen on the following chart crude dropped away from the Neptune price line (green) and bounced off the Jupiter price line (orange), the day crude appeared to put in a trough.

The lines are 45 degrees apart. 45 degrees is (360 / 8) = 45 or also known as the 8th harmonic.

Keep in mind there has been some war news with Saudi Arabia sending ground troops into Yemen. Problems with Saudi crude operations, plants or ports could change the price for crude very quickly.



Another chart we have not shown for awhile is the weekly crude chart with the 16 week (red) and 24 week (blue) cycles. Where they meet the cycle line is green and is typically found at crests but sometimes inverts to a trough. The next green line is early November. 2015 close to a Neptune direct signature.

The 2nd half 2015 dates and subscription to the monthly letter (starting in July) are available for purchase.


Monday, August 24, 2015

We could be witnessing the start of the 4 year or 7 year cycle down move to a trough as mentioned a number of times in our market letter.

I'll send out another ALERT tonight to subscribers.

The last ALERT to subscribers was sent out August 17th follows.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I'm looking for a turn Aug 21, 2015 +- 2 tds.

This looks like the possible start of a more significant downtrend in the major market indices.

On Aug 21 the Sun will square Saturn which will energies the T square formation that Saturn is in with Jupiter and Neptune.

In fact Jupiter and Neptune are forming an opposition and Saturn is squaring both these planets. This puts Saturn as the focal planet and it is still in Scorpio (debt and other peoples money) and it is still in mutual reception with Pluto, making both quite powerful.

This is a pretty good Astrological definition of a bubble bursting. Jupiter and Neptune being the bubble and Saturn the sharp object that bursts the bubble.

This T square will be hit by the Sun on Aug 26 (Sun conjunct Jupiter) and Aug 31st (Sun opposition Neptune) as well so if we don't get a reaction near Aug 21 we should watch one of the other two dates.

It is possible this move down could go down into late September close to the Solar and Lunar eclipses. The exact Jupiter opposition to Neptune date is Sept 17 the same day Saturn enters Sagittarius.

The Aug 21 date could also affect Gold in a positive way and the whole period while the T-Square forms may be important for crude.


Regards

From last weeks blog post
"I'm looking for a move higher next week which could reverse down as soon as
Aug 21st. +- 2 tds:

From two weeks ago blog post:
"Later in the week there is a significant negative aspect which may affect the USA directly."

We made the point, the Sun was about to begin it's translation of a T-square beginning on Aug 21 with the Sun in waning square to Saturn. In this case Saturn is the focal point of a T-square between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Jupiter and Neptune may point to confusion but remember Saturn is still in Scorpio, debt and other peoples money and continues in mutual reception with Pluto, making both stronger. We may be hearing more news of debt problems or confusion surrounding debt or financing This configuration could also be pointing to violent weather.

The Sun's translation of this powerful T-square continues with the Sun conjunct Jupiter on August 26 and the Sun opposition Neptune on August 31st. The move down has been so strong I'm looking at the next period to be very volatile. With Neptune involved we could see confusions and deception. After such a strong move, immediate aspects will probably mark periods of volatility. As we get closer I'll send ALERTs to subscribers if we have a firm idea of direction. At this point, look at next week as being very volatile.

There appears to be further serious problems in September. The dates will be in the subscribers September letter.

There is also a perigee Full Moon on August 29th. Beyond the markets the perigee (closest pass to Earth) Full Moon can be a time of severe weather, earthquakes / volcanoes and general violent actions. This  Full Moon is very close to the Jupiter / Neptune opposition. We may see another drastic slide near this date.

Cycle wise this weeks sharp down move really confuses the cycle outlook. A new nominal 18 week cycle started July 7th with the trough at week 21. What now looks like the high for the cycle was on July 29th.

Now in week 7 we are either headed down to a nominal 6 week cycle low or a 1/2 Primary bottom in the 8-9th weeks. Since we have broken below the start of the 18 week cycle which was July 7th, this 18 week cycle should stay below the July 7th value at 2081 until the next cycle trough which would be 11-15 weeks along. The fact the high came so early in the cycle on July 29th makes this cycle very left translated and therefore very negative.

This is so bearish that we may need to reconsider the July 7th date as the low for the nominal 18 week cycle. We are leaving it there for now, just a note it may need to be changed.

The fact I'm looking for a slow forming top for the whole 6 year move means we may start seeing more left translated cycles or at least cresting in the middle of the cycle rather than being right translated. Also we may have already seen the top on May 20th at 2134.71 for the SP500.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough. It's due, as is the 4 year cycle.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen away from the thick blue price line and is now three price lines below it near 1978.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October low on Sept 17th. This and other items should make mid September very important. More details for subscribers.



The coming aspects could also indicate earthquake activity or severe weather. Violent events continue.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.

DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th

Following is a daily chart of the SP500 with a fan indicator. The dark blue fan line is 45 degrees. The starting point is the low at March 6, 2009. The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2122. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time. This is another bearish indicator.



And I've been waiting for this weekly chart of the SP500 with the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages to turn for some time. Another bearish indicator.



Saturn will be moving into Sagittarius in September. This is better stated that karmic Saturn will enter spiritual Sagittarius.

Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn was in mutable signs, the colored x's



In Summary
The expected down turn started and was more severe than anticipated. Such a move in a few days should result in volatile environment, up and down, for some time. This should be a great environment for those who enjoy short term trading, like me. {^_^}.

The dates where the Sun will again translate the T-square mentioned above are prime candidates for volatility. Again they are Aug 26th and Aug 31st. All dates are +- 2 td's unless otherwise noted. The perigee Full Moon on August 29th is also very close to the forming Jupiter / Neptune opposition. I'll send out alerts to subscribers when trading opportunities appear.

With the strength of the move down this week we can't discount a longer term cycle forming.

4 year  6.5-7 year
See the following weekly chart of the DJIA. The red squares are the Jupiter Saturn waning square, 3 pass. The green squares are the Saturn Neptune square. They overlap and could be pointing to a period of dramatic change. Other items noted on the chart are Saturn in Sagittarius, the time frame for the 3.3 year Kitchin cycle trough and the next Primary cycle trough. I look to the periods of overlap to determine more major market moves. I bring this up since I think there will be a stronger down move late in 2015 or early 2016.



Synodic Cycles
VIDEO

Based on the work of the French Astrologer, Barbault, the Jupiter Neptune cycle is related to the economies of the European eastern bloc and particularly with France. Watch for news out of Europe over the next few weeks, probably negative news, dealing with their economies or the influx of migrants from the mid-East and northern Africa.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th and we are entering the 5th week.

We are in the first nominal 6 week cycle of a new nominal 18 week cycle. As mentioned many times we often get a pullback in the 2nd or 3rd weeks before the cycle moves up. We got a small pullback Aug 13, 14, 17. With the currency wars heating up Gold should benefit. This may wait until the next 18 week cycle trough, that is late 2015 / early 2016. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. I'm expecting a pullback. Since heliocentric Mercury is about to enter Sagittarius Gold may go up or hold it's value until heliocentric Mercury exits Sagittarius on Sept 3rd. I suspect Gold will go down before then.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold started moving up when it hit the 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical line). It moved up sharply when the Venus price line crossed the Jupiter price line as it has so many times. Nevertheless I'm looking for a pullback. Note the 9 day CCI at the bottom of the chart. Not positive short term.




Crude
This coming week of Aug 24th we should be entering the 23rd week of a Primary cycle which started Mar 18, 2015.

I'm watching the dates around any Neptune or Jupiter aspects and there is a big one in September. The T-square mentioned above includes Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune and the Sun will be translating all 3 from now to the end of the month. Although Saturn may be emphasized the influence of Jupiter and Neptune should be felt. Beyond the price of crude this may see a period of confusion or delusion over this period. Crude also tends to have a change in trend, either a crest or a trough when geocentric Mars is in Leo. Mars entered Leo on August 8th and will be there until Sept 24th. Watch for a change in trend during this period.

Crude put in a "W" bottom, marked PB (Primary bottom) and DB ( double bottom).



As seen on the following chart crude dropped away from the Neptune price line (green) and now continues with lower lows.

The lines are 45 degrees apart. 45 degrees is (360 / 8) = 45 or also known as the 8th harmonic.

We are getting late in the nominal 18 week cycle in crude. Watch price closely as it approaches any of the price lines or dates mentioned above.



Another chart we have not shown for awhile is the weekly crude chart with the 16 week (red) and 24 week (blue) cycles. Where they meet the cycle line is green and is typically found at crests but sometimes inverts to a trough. The next green line is early November. 2015 close to a Neptune direct signature.
