Once again this post is a little shorter as we work on the May subscribers report.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise I’m looking at March 27th as the Primary cycle trough and April 13th as a double bottom.

This puts us entering the 9th week of a new Primary cycle. We got a 7 week pullback which should mark the first nominal 6 week cycle trough. The other possibility would be a ½ Primary cycle (9 week) which would be 1 to 2 weeks out.

We had a descending triangle (green) on the chart. As often happens price crashed through the upper line of the triangle, in effect gapping twice. Those gap areas may act as support. Note price moved down and bounced close to where the arms of the descending triangle met.

It should be noted Primary cycles (18 weeks) most often start with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle.  The 2nd most common start is a 1/2 Primary or 9 week sub-cycles. The nominal range for the Primary cycle is 13 to 21 weeks. The recent highs were on March 1st closing at 2,396 in the SP500 then a high om May 25th at 2,418.71, a new All Time High.

I’m expecting volatility with both ups and downs but moving forward I’m looking for a low probably mid-June after reviewing the Astrological aspects.



Recently we have had the 45 year aspect Saturn waning trine Uranus on May 19, the Venus opposition Jupiter on May 19 and Venus square Pluto on May 25th. The 45 year aspect requires a wide orb but the other two have a strong affiliation with cycle turns within 6-8 days. I’m expecting a high at any date and then a move down either next week or mid-June.

Note the 15 (red) sma and 45 day (blue) sma are both above price. Also note on May 25 and 26th price was stopped at the Saturn (black) price line.

Another cycle that has been at highs and lows is the 40 trading day cycle (td). Next due May 24th +- 3 tds.



Other Astros coming up this week are:

May 29 Mars opposition Saturn (US markets are closed).
            Can effect a change in trend given a broad orb +- 11 td’s.

June 1 Venus trine Saturn

June 3 Venus conjunct Uranus

June 3 Venus trine North Node

Later this month we will have Jupiter turning direct and Neptune turning retrograde. These are within 5 td’s of each other and could be signaling a powerful change in trend. These are the two co-rulers of crude. We could see a change in trend in crude at the same time.

The following chart of the SP500 includes the heliocentric Bradley indicator (blue line). There were three possible change in trend dates, which may have been the 6 week lows. Coming up we have potential turn dates on
May 26th and late May, early June.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 15 degrees on the following daily chart.

The last hit was on May 17th, the big move down.

The next hits are May 31 then. June 15th. Any could be the 6-week low.

I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue

These price lines can act as support / resistance. Also on this chart are blue vertical line which is the 24 cd (calendar day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows.
The date of June 5th is the next 24 cd cycle.



May 12 was the day the general population became aware of the Cyberwar that's been going on for some time. Note the references to May 12th above and the Mars waxing square to Neptune on May 11th.

I brought up the August 21 Solar Eclipse in the May market letter. This should bring significant events in that time frame. In the mean time, I will monitor transits that may hit the location of the Solar Eclipse. An example in this blog is May 15th when the North Node transits over the point of the eclipse. 

The path of this very important Eclipse is seen in the following:



I added the chart of Iran to this post. The center circle is the Chart for Iran when the Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran. The outer circle is the planetary position for May 20, 2017.Note the square between the natal Pluto and transiting Pluto. Also note transiting Mars is trine natal Pluto and transiting Mars is quintile transiting Pluto.There is going to be trouble in Iran in the next few months. July / August may be it.



Gold

We put in a low in Gold on December 15th, 2016 which was the 7.4-year cycle low in Gold

Gold appears to have put in a Primary cycle low on May 9th, but not confirmed. If we look at the older cycle it is 24 weeks along putting more emphasis on the May 9th low which would put us in the 4th week of a new Primary cycle.

Gold most often starts a Primary cycle with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle. Watch Monday +-, the Mars / Saturn opposition often signals a short sharp move both up or down.

Later in the week we have 2 aspects with a history of change in trend for Gold. These are June 3, Venus conjunct Neptune and June 4th Sun square Neptune.

As mentioned many times we often get a pullback 2 to 3 weeks after starting a new Primary cycle.

After the Primary low is in (remember it is not confirmed) I’m looking for precious metals to start moving up. Beyond technical’s and Astrology, countries like China are reducing the rate at which they purchase US treasuries. By May / June watch Gold increase. I am looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year.

Gold like many markets was affected by the Astrological aspects from late March through April. This may push Gold a little lower or add some restraint in the Spring period.

From last week. “Gold may be affected by the Venus and Mercury shadow dates which are May 19 and May 21 respectively”. The trend changed from up to flat.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical lines) which was at May 15th +- 2 td’s. Note the MACD and CCI indicators at the bottom of the chart. CCI appears headed up. The next one is June 12th.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.



Crude

We had May 5th as the Primary cycle low. This puts us in the 4th week pf the new Primary cycle. Remember our rule just covered under Gold above. At the start of a new Primary cycle we often get a pullback 2 – 3 weeks along.

There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, the co-rulers of crude. There have also been aspects to Pluto which rules all things from the ground.

Coming up in June we have Jupiter turning Direct and Neptune turning retrograde within 5 td’s of each other. Both are co-rulers of crude.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitudes of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto converted to price. They should act as good support / resistance areas
.
Note how the move down stopped close to the blue line and bounced off it.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. Crude can also be effected by Pluto as it rules “things from the ground”. Pluto turned retrograde on April 20th, in the middle of the move down.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent move down stopped near the Pluto Price Line On May 4th then had a big range day on May 5th. On May 25 price moved up to the Sun price line then moved down sharply. Almost touching the Pluto price line.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise I’m looking at March 27th as the Primary cycle trough and April 13th as a double bottom.

This puts us entering the 8th week of a new Primary cycle. We should therefore be looking for a pull back into the first nominal 6 week cycle trough. The other possibility would be a ½ Primary cycle (9 week) which would be a couple of weeks out.

We had a descending triangle (green) on the chart. As often happens price crashed through the upper line of the triangle, in effect gapping twice. Those gap areas may act as support.

It should be noted Primary cycles (18 weeks) most often start with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle.  The 2nd most common start is a 1/2 Primary or 9 week sub-cycles. The nominal range for the Primary cycle is 13 to 21 weeks. The recent highs were on March 1st closing at 2,396 in the SP500 then a high om May 16th at 2,405.77, a new All Time High.

To summarize, I’m looking for a pullback in the short term to a nominal 6 week or ½ Primary cycle trough. I’m expecting volatility with both ups and downs but moving forward I’m looking for a low probably mid-June after reviewing the Astrological aspects.



Note the 15 (red) sma is just above price and the 45 day (blue) sma just below price.

Another cycle that has been at highs and lows is the 40 trading day cycle (td). Next due May 24th +- 3 tds.



Other Astros coming up this week are:

May 21 Mercury Shadow Date
Same as Venus last week. It is the day Mercury returns to the position it held when it went retrograde. Look for a move down Monday or Tuesday.

May 19 Saturn waning trine Uranus
Although this is aspect is past exact it can effect things +- for a few months. This aspect has often been at tops from which significant pull back can occur.
This is the 45 year transit mentioned a number of times with more details sent to subscribers. This is a 3 pass and this is the middle aspect.
Saturn / Uranus contacts emphasize the politics of order and are basically conservative and authoritarian.
This covers the flow of investment and production in heavy industry. Note, what Trump is attempting in the USA.
This is an aspect to bring out new ideas, inventions, insights and reforms.
This aspect can also manifest as sudden breakdown of existing structures.  
In this day and age sudden internet attacks change the status quo.
This aspect also has a strong connection with the Middle East and Israel and gypt in particular. When looking at Brexit and recent political actions in the USA with the Trump presidency look no further than the Saturn / Uranus trine.
Being a 45 year event it needs a wide orb, 2-3 months. I’ll watch other aspects to both Saturn and Uranus as possible triggers.

The heaviest day for transits this coming week is May 25th where we have Venus square Pluto and a perigee New Moon. The latter can result violent weather, geophysical events, or like natal Astrology can affect the individual and his / her thinking. This New Moon is in Gemini which is our thinking and communication. Watch what you say and what you communicate.

The following chart of the SP500 includes the heliocentric Bradley indicator (blue line). There were three possible change in trend dates, which may have been the 6 week lows on May 8th, May 12th and May 18th. Coming up we have potential turn dates on
May 22nd, May 26th and late May, early June.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 15 degrees on the following daily chart.

The last hit was on May 17th, the big move down.

The next hits are May 31 then. June 15th. Any could be the 6-week low.

I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue

These price lines can act as support / resistance. Also on this chart are blue vertical line which is the 24 cd (calendar day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows.
The date of May 12 is the next 24 cd cycle.



May 12 was the day the general population became aware of the Cyberwar that's been going on for some time. Note the references to May 12th above and the Mars waxing square to Neptune on 
May 11th.

Note the square between the natal Pluto and transiting Pluto. Also note transiting Mars is trine natal Pluto and transiting Mars is quintile transiting Pluto.

There is going to be trouble in Iran in the next few months. July / August may be it. We'll keep ypu posted.





Gold

We put in a low in Gold on December 15th, 2016 which was the 7.4-year cycle low in Gold

Gold most often starts a Primary cycle with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle. This Primary cycle appears to be in a classic 3 * 6 week pattern. Venus turning retrograde is a good signal for a move in Gold and Gold did move sharply lower at the Venus retrograde. Gold now appears to be rolling over into the last 6th week cycle which should take Gold to a Primary cycle low in May / early June.

Gold may have put in the Primary trough on May 9th but not confirmed. This would put us in the 2nd week of a new Primary cycle. As mentioned many times we often get a pullback 2 to 3 weeks after starting a new Primary cycle. We may be seeing this right now in Gold.

After the Primary low is in (remember it is not confirmed) I’m looking for precious metals to start moving up. Beyond technical’s and Astrology, countries like China are reducing the rate at which they purchase US treasuries. By May / June watch Gold increase. I am looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year.

December 15, 2016 may have been the Gold low we were looking for. This would put us in the 23rd week of the Primary cycle. This looks like the third and last nominal 6 week cycle dropping into it’s low.

Gold like many markets will be affected by the Astrological aspects from late March through April. This may push Gold a little lower or add some restraint in the Spring period.

Gold may be affected by the Venus and Mercury shadow dates which are May 19 and May 21 respectively.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical lines) which is next at May 15th +- 2 td’s. Note the MACD and CCI indicators at the bottom of the chart. CCI appears headed up.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.



Crude

We had May 5th as the Primary cycle low. Remember our rule just covered under Gold above. At the start of a new Primary cycle we often get a pullback 2 – 3 weeks along.

There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, the co-rulers of crude. There have also been aspects to Pluto which rules all things from the ground.

Coming up in June we have Jupiter turning Direct and Neptune turning retrograde within 5 td’s of each other. Both are co-rulers of crude.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitudes of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto converted to price. They should act as good support / resistance areas
.
Note how the move down stopped close to the blue line and bounced off it.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. Crude can also be effected by Pluto as it rules “things from the ground”. Pluto turned retrograde on
April 20th, in the middle of the move down.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent move down stopped near the Pluto Price Line On May 4th then had a big range day on May 5th. It is now up to the next Pluto price line and I’m watching for a break through or will it find resistance? We may see price move up the green Price Lines (Sun) and then follow it up.

The nominal range for the Primary cycle is 13 to 21 weeks. The recent highs were on March 1st closing at 2,396 in the SP500 then a high om May 9th at 2,403.87, a new All Time High.

To summarize, I’m looking for a pullback in the short term to a nominal 6 week or ½ Primary cycle trough. I’m expecting volatility with both ups and downs but moving forward I’m looking for a low probably mid-June after reviewing the Astrological aspects.



Note the 15 (red) and 45 day (blue) sma’s. Price dropped below the 15 and 45 day sma’s on March 27 then again in mid-April.

This coming week has some powerful aspects, see below.

One we haven’t shown for some time is the Full moon to New moon. As noted on the chart:

-          buy 3 days before the Full Moon

-          Sell 3 days after the New Moon

This is not 100%. I’ve found it works best in a non-trending, sideways market.


Another cycle that has been at highs and lows is the 40 trading day cycle *td). Next due May 24th +- 3 tds.


Other Astros coming up this week are:

May 15 North Node on the position of the August 21 Solar Eclpise
Watch for events that could lead to open hostilities or a strong geophysical event.

May 18 Venus Shadow Date
            This is the day Venus returns to the position it help when it went retrograde.
            This often marks a change in trend.

May 19 Saturn waning trine Uranus
This is the 45 year transit mentioned a number of times with more details sent to subscribers. This is a 3 pass and this is the middle aspect.
Saturn / Uranus contacts emphasize the politics of order and are basically conservative and authoritarian.

Being a 45 year event it needs a wide orb, 2-3 months. I’ll watch other aspects to both Saturn and Uranus as possible triggers.

May 19 Venus opposition Jupiter
Same day as the 45 year event above. If the markets are still going up then this should be a good opportunity to short within 4 -5 days.

May 21 Mercury Shadow Date
Same as Venus, it is the day Mercury returns to the position it held when it went retrograde.


The following chart of the SP500 includes the heliocentric Bradley indicator (blue line). There are three possible change in trend dates, which maybe the 6 week lows on May 8th, May 12th 
and May 18th.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 15 degrees on the following daily chart.

The last hit was on May 2nd.

The next hits are May 17 then May 31. Any could be the 6-week low.

I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue

These price lines can act as support / resistance. Also on this chart are blue vertical line which is the 24 cd (calendar day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows.
The date of May 12 is the next 24 cd cycle.



I brought up the August 21 Solar Eclipse in the May market letter. This should bring significant events in that time frame. In the mean time, I will monitor transits that may hit the location of the Solar Eclipse. An example in this blog is May 15th when the North Node transits over the point of the eclipse. 

The path of this very important Eclipse is seen in the following:



Gold

Gold most often starts a Primary cycle with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle. This Primary cycle appears to be in a classic 3 * 6 week pattern. Venus turning retrograde is a good signal for a move in Gold and Gold did move sharply lower at the Venus retrograde. Gold now appears to be rolling over into the last 6th week cycle which should take Gold to a Primary cycle low in May / early June.

May 11, 12 and May 19, 22 all +- 2 td’s (trading days).

Gold may have put in the Primary trough on May 9th but not confirmed.

After the Primary low is in I’m looking for precious metals to start moving up. Beyond technical’s and Astrology, countries like China are reducing the rate at which they purchase US treasuries. By May / June watch Gold increase. I am looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year.

December 15, 2016 may have been the Gold low we have been looking for. This puts us in the 22nd week of the Primary cycle. This looks like the third and last nominal 6 week cycle dropping into it’s low.

Gold like many markets will be affected by the Astrological aspects from late March through April. This may push Gold a little lower or add some restraint in the Spring period.

Gold may be affected by the Venus and Mercury shadow dates which are May 19 and May 21 respectively.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical lines) which is next at May 15th +- 2 td’s. Note the MACD and CCI indicators at the bottom of the chart. CCI appears headed up.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.



Crude

We has March 22nd as the Primary cycle low but it appears we were a little early. I’m now looking at the spike low on May 5 as the Primary cycle trough but not confirmed. appeared to be the Primary cycle low for crude, although not confirmed

There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, the co-rulers of crude. There have also been aspects to Pluto which rules all things from the ground.

We will have to watch price action over the next couple of weeks. Remember we had Mars transits to both Jupiter and Neptune this week.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitudes of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto converted to price. They should act as good support / resistance areas and did so for 4 days around May 5th the spike low.

Note how the move down stopped close to the blue line and bounced off it.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. Crude can also be effected by Pluto as it rules “things from the ground”. Pluto turned retrograde on
April 20th, in the middle of the move down.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent move down stopped near the Pluto Price Line On May 4th then had a big range day on May 5th. It is now up to the next Pluto price line and I’m watching for a break through or will it find resistance? We may see price move up the green Price Lines (Sun) and then follow it up.

Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.

(January, 1 2017 - June 30, 2017)
Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up.
Once again this post is a little shorter as we work on the May subscribers report.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise I’m looking at March 27th as the Primary cycle trough and April 13th as a double bottom.

This puts us entering the 6th week of a new Primary cycle. We should therefore be looking for a pull back into the first 6 week cycle trough. The other possibility would be a ½ Primary cycle (9 week).

We had a descending triangle (green) on the chart. As often happens price crashed through the upper line of the triangle, in effect gapping twice. Those gap areas may act as support.

It should be noted Primary cycles (18 weeks) most often start with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle.  The 2nd most common start is a 1/2 Primary or 9 week sub-cycles. The nominal range for the Primary cycle is 13 to 21 weeks. The recent high was on March 1st closing at 2,396 in the SP500. The high om May 5 was 2,399, a new All Time High.

The last 2 months have been unusual and very difficult to forecast.

To summarize, I’m looking for a pullback in the short term to a 6 week or ½ Primary cycle trough. I’m expecting volatility with both ups and downs but moving forward I’m looking for a low mid-year (June / July) but probably June after reviewing the Astrological aspects.



Note the 15 (red) and 45 day (blue) sma’s. Price dropped below the 15 and 45 day sma’s and has now risen above those averages.

This coming week has fewer significant Astros than what we have seen in March and April. Nevertheless, there are some new ones and the longer-term aspects we have mentioned still apply. So far the Cycle charts have not resulted in unusual movement.

One we haven’t shown for some time is the Full moon to New moon. As noted on the chart:

-          buy 3 days before the Full Moon

-          Sell 3 days after the New Moon

This is not 100%. I’ve found it works best in a non-trending, sideways market.



Another cycle that has been at highs and lows is the 40 trading day cycle *td). Next due May 24th +- 3 tds.



Other Astros coming up this week are:

May 9 Sun trine Pluto
This is the trine which occurs approx. 19 days (cd) after Pluto turns retrograde. The market often moves up around the exact date then pulls back.

May 10 Mercury conjunct Uranus in fiery Aries and Full Moon
Watch for events that could lead to open hostilities or a strong geophysical event.
            This aspect together with a Full Moon may result in a sudden unusual event.

May 11 Mars waxing square Neptune
            Often at a crest but in the longer term not that significant.

May 12 Mars waning trine Jupiter
Often powerful. Look for a reversal of the current status. If still going up then start a move down and vice versa. Look at an orb of +- 5 td’s.
There may also have an effect on crude as we have just had Mars aspect both Jupiter and Neptune within one day.

May 15 North Node on the position of the August 21 Solar Eclpise
Watch for events that could lead to open hostilities or a strong geophysical event.

Mars is active by transit. Expect hostilities to increase.
Later in the month we have Venus and Mercury returning to their shadow dates and the 45 year aspect of Saturn trine Uranus. This is in orb most of the month.


The following chart of the SP500 includes the heliocentric Bradley indicator (blue line). There are three possible change in trend dates, which maybe the 6 week lows on May 8th, May 12th and May 18th.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 15 degrees on the following daily chart.

The last hit was on May 2nd.

The next hits are May 17th then May 31. Either could be the 6-week low.

I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue

These price lines can act as support / resistance. Also on this chart are blue vertical line which is the 24 cd (calendar day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows.
The date of May 12 is the next 24 cd cycle.



I brought up the August 21 Solar Eclipse in the May market letter. This should bring significant events in that time frame. In the mean time, I will monitor transits that may hit the location of the Solar Eclipse. An example in this blog is May 15th when the North Node transits over the point of the eclipse. 

The path of this very important Eclipse is seen in the following:


Following is a longer term chart of the DJIA (monthly). The red vertical lines are 180 months. The next one hits in January 2018 +- 4 months.



Gold

We put in a low in Gold on December 15th, 2016 which was the 7.4-year cycle low in Gold

Gold most often starts a Primary cycle with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle. This Primary cycle appears to be in a classic 3 * 6 week pattern. Venus turning retrograde is a good signal for a move in Gold and Gold did move sharply lower at the Venus retrograde. Gold now appears to be rolling over into the last 6th week cycle which should take Gold to a Primary cycle low in May.

May 11, 12 and May 19,22 all +- 2 td’s (trading days).

After the Primary low is in I’m looking for precious metals to start moving up. Beyond technical’s and Astrology, countries like China are reducing the rate at which they purchase US treasuries. By May / June watch Gold increase. At the same the central banks of the world are expanding and the money is going into world markets. I am looking at precious metals being the trade of the year.

December 15, 2016 may have been the Gold low we have been looking for. This puts us in the 21st week of the Primary cycle. This looks like the third and last nominal 6 week cycle dropping into it’s low.

Gold like many markets will be affected by the Astrological aspects from late March through April. This may push Gold a little lower or add some restraint in the Spring period.

Gold may be affected by the Venus and Mercury shadow dates which are May 19 and May 21 respectively.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical lines) which is next at May 15th +- 2 td’s. Note the MACD and CCI indicators at the bottom of the chart. CCI appears headed up.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.



Crude
March 22nd appeared to be the Primary cycle low for crude, although not confirmed. The dramatic move down last week may result in a Primary low being formed now. This would out us in week 23 of an older Primary cycle which started November 14, 2016.

If this is a new cycle which started on March 22nd and the crest was April 12th this would be a very left translated cycle and would be very bearish for crude.

We will have to watch price action over the next couple of weeks. Remember we had Mars transits to both Jupiter and Neptune coming up this week. Hostilities over crude? Maybe.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitudes of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto converted to price. They should act as good support / resistance areas.

Note how the move down stopped close to the blue line and may bounce off it.


I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. Crude can also be affected by Pluto as it rules “things from the ground”. Pluto turned retrograde on April 20th, in the middle of the move down.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent move down stopped near the Pluto Price Line On May 4th then had a big range day on May 5th. We may see price move up the green Price Lines (Sun).
