SP500

The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse.
We are now starting the 10th week and looking for a pullback into the nominal 9.5 week cycle low. This has been an unusual time with the general market indices seemingly unstoppable. Whether it is central bank money or money from some other source we need to know the time periods where a correction is more probable. We try and look at Cycles and Astro events that have a history of being 65% - 72 % correct. We will continue with this approach.

Note this last Primary cycle low on August 21 was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicates a possible, I emphasize possible, change in trend near Nov 6, 7, and 17.

November 24 is also a Martin Armstrong turn date. Look for surprise events. The rules for reading the Bradley indicator are in Section 9 of the subscribers’ report.



We should stay aware the trends in the major US indices remain up and that is the way they should be played.

This week we have the Sun in waning trine to Neptune on Nov. 3rd. This aspect has a correlation to longer term transits, 50 week and greater.

On Nov. 4th Venus is in opposition to Uranus. This aspect has a history of moves in the Primary cycle or greater cycle. This aspect most often occurs near a trough.

The next very significant aspect is Saturn trine Uranus on Nov. 11, 2017. This aspect is often seen at troughs and often seen at Primary and greater cycles. This aspect has been covered a number of times. It covers a period of right-wing and conservative processes, It is associated with capitalism. This cycle also a strong association with the middle east including Israel and Egypt. Look for events in this area.

The following chart of the daily SP500 shows the Venus latitude as a green wavy line. Note I put green vertical lines at the center of each wave up. Note; the market tends to turn down shortly after the mid-point of the Venus latitude.



The red squared boxes are an attempt at forecasting which is being tested.

The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The 5 month cycle was September 4. The 5-month cycle often is at the start of a slide down but not sliding yet. This looks like the 5 month cycle came in early, around August 21, the Solar eclipse,  and continued up.



Following is daily chart of the DJIA. The blue vertical lines are an 18 td (trading day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows and has been pretty consistent.

The two horizontal lines are the price lines for Uranus (purple) and Pluto (dark blue). Price lines are the longitude of the planet converted to price. Notice how they have acted as both support and resistance and at times just followed these two lines right, on the chart.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 24 degrees on the following daily chart. The blue vertical lines are 24 cd’s (calendar days).

The next hits are Nov 1st. then Nov. 17th.

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

These price lines can act as support / resistance. It has been at highs and lows. Note also when they cross often gets a reaction in price on a short-term basis. Also note, near the top of the chart is a light blue line. This is the Neptune Price Line. Note how it has been strong resistance to price but has broken through. It should act as strong support when the market turns down.

Also watch around November 10th where the Saturn and Uranus Price Lines cross.



In summary with the aspects in front of us I’m looking for a surprise event to turn the markets. This may not happen until late November. 

Gold

Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th. July 10th was the last Primary cycle low and we are now 16 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. The Primary cycle has an average length of 18 weeks but has a range from 15 to 22 weeks.

The 15 day sma is below the 45 day sma and price is below both. This appears to be moving down into the Primary cycle low.

Note on the Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold had stopped moving down around 23.16% Fibonacci  retracement and then moved down again last week.

Also note the low on Oct. 27th is close to the Oct 6 low and if you look back this area has been support and resistance. I wanted to see this area hold. If it does not hold then I’m looking at the 38.2 % retracement around 1248. If it goes into the box, between 38.2% and 50% this is a common area for Primary cycle lows.



On Oct 22 we have heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius. It will be there until Nov. 2nd when heliocentric Mercury moves into Capricorn. This usually marks a period that is volatile for precious metals. It can go up or down. Down into this period may be the Primary cycle low then we would be up. The following daily chart of Gold shows heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius. They are the blue x’s on the chart. The vertical blue lines are an 89 td cycle, 89 being a Fibonacci number.



The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.



The 4th quarter of 2017 may still see a rising Gold price.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on October 30th and the next November 27th.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. It has hit one of the main Mars Price lines (darker red) and may get support here. Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 27 harmonic. If you count each line from one darker red line to the next you will find there are 15 of them. 15 * 24 degrees = 360 degrees.



The following daily chart of Gold shows the days Mars is entering a new sign (red squares). Look at this using +- 3 td’s (trading days). The next date is December 8th. I suspect this will be after the Primary cycle low.



Crude

We were looking at June 21st as being the trough of the last Primary cycle.  The move out of that date was the start of a Primary cycle. We are entering either the 19th week of the Primary that started on June 21 or we started a new Primary cycle on October 6th and we are now in the 3rd week of a new Primary cycle. The latter is my current view.

The last 2 days crude broke through the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement.

The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (blue). Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See it again on Sept 14. The next blue line is in the $55 + near the top of the chart.

The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.

There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st.  Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude and NatGas. November 3rd will be the powerful Sun trine Neptune and December 2nd Jupiter trine Neptune.

Watch the red Fibonacci retracement lines and the blue planetary averages.

Also watch the 15 and 45 day sma. Both are pointed up with price rising above both.



On the following daily chart of crude note the green lines sloping up. This is the price line for the Sun/Earth. The blue lines moving horizontal is the Pluto priceline (blue).

Note how price often follows the Sun price line up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto price line. We often get big range days when the two lines cross, like Friday.

SP500

The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse.
We are now starting the 9th week and looking for a pullback into the nominal 9.5 week cycle low. This has been an unusual time with the general market indices seemingly unstoppable. Whether it is central bank money or money from some other source we need to know the time periods where a correction will start. We look at cycles and Astro events that have a history of being 65% - 72 % correct. We will continue with this approach.

Note this last Primary cycle low on August 21 was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicates a possible I emphasize possible, change in trend near Oct. 23, Nov. 7,  Nov 24. November 24 is also a Martin Armstrong turn date. Look for surprise events. The rules for reading the Bradley indicator are in Section 9 of the subscribers’ report.


We should stay aware the trends in the major US indices remain up and that is the way they should be played.

Friday October 20, 2017 is the 30 year anniversary of the 1987 crash on October 20, 1987. Looking another 30 years back we have October 22, 1957 where we had a significant low. Another 30 years back and we are at October 21, 1927 and a low.

To see similar market moves look back to the high in the SP500 at October 11, 2007 and the move down March 6, 2009.

This week we have Mars entering Libra on October 22 joining Venus and the Sun there. The Sun won’t continue there very long as it exits Libra on October 23 for Scorpio. Planets changing signs can indicate a change in the market indices, so watch closely. There is another short term cycle due on October 22 as well.

The next significant aspects for the week are the Sun conjunct Jupiter on Oct. 26, Venus squared Pluto on Oct 27th and the Sun quintile Pluto on Oct. 28th.

The next very significant aspect is the Sun trine Neptune on Nov. 3rd, Saturn trine Uranus on 
Nov. 11, 2017.

The very slow moving aspect, Uranus semi-square Neptune is still in orb. It was exact on Oct 7 and reflects the on-going illusion and confusion in the markets and elsewhere.

The following chart of the daily SP500 shows the Venus latitude as a green wavy line. Note I put green vertical lines at the center of each wave up. Also note the market tends to turn down shortly after the mid-point of the Venus latitude.



The square red boxes are an attempt at forecasting which is being tested.

Transiting Saturn square the USA Neptune in the Sagittarius rising chart.
The effect of Saturn square Neptune can be deflationaryWe haven’t seen this yet.With the buildup of credit in the economy aspects could bring on defaults, cash shortages putting stress on the credit markets. Saturn / Uranus is coming up in November.

From a Mundane Astrology perspective, it covers socialism, and left wing political ideas. It is associated with mobs, secret plots, fraud, swindling, bogus companies, loss and liquidation. This same aspect was near exact during the election period

From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Saturn / Neptune
Habit, things of long duration, sickness, chronic conditions.

The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The 5 month cycle was September 4. The 5-month cycle often is at the start of a slide down but not sliding yet. This looks like the 5 month cycle came in early and continued up.



The following chart is the 50 week cycle. The pink vertical lines are the 50 week cycle. The red squares show the Sun conjunct the North Node. The blue squares are Saturn turning direct. Both signatures have a history with the 50 week cycle. If this is the 50 week it is very shallow.



I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 24 degrees on the following daily chart. The blue vertical lines are 24 cd’s (calendar days).

The next hits are Nov 1st. then Nov. 17th.

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

These price lines can act as support / resistance. It has been at highs and lows. Note also when they cross often gets a reaction in price on a short-term basis. Also note, near the top of the chart is a light blue line. This is the Neptune PriceLine. Note how it has been strong resistance to price but has broken through. It should act as strong support when the market turns down.



In summary with the aspects in front of us I’m looking for a surprise event to turn the markets. This may not happen until late November. 

Gold

Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th. July 10th was the last Primary cycle low and we are now 15 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. The Primary cycle has an average length of 18 weeks but has a range from 15 to 22 weeks.

The 15 day sma is below the 45 day sma and price is below both. This appears to be moving down into the Primary cycle low.

Coming up on Oct 22 we have heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius. It will be there until Nov. 2nd when heliocentric Mercury moves into Capricorn. This usually marks a period that is volatile for precious metals. It can go up or down. Down into this period may be the Primary cycle low then we would be up.

Note on the Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold had stopped moving down around 23.16% fibonacci retracement and then moved down again last week.



The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.



The following chart shows the 39 td cycle. It is the blue vertical line The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement around 1281 may offer some support but I’m looking for a short move down then up after the Primary cycle low.



The 4th quarter of 2017 may still see a rising Gold price.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on October 2nd. and the next October 30th.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. It has been acting as support for the past few weeks. I’m looking to move down through the Mars price line, then the Primary low than up.


Mars will also be entering Libra, a Cardinal Air sign. There may be more interest in an increases im diplomacy

Crude

We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the last Primary cycle.  The move out of that date was the start of a Primary cycle. We are entering the 18h week.and should be watching for the Primary cycle low. It is possible October 6 was that low but too close to call yet.

The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See again on Sept 14. Crude moved down sharply on Friday October 6th. Crude should be a buy around 46.00. Crude may find support at that blue line sp watch closely next week.

Crude has now hit the Fib retracement at 23.6%. Like Gold we may head down here and watch to see if the average longitude acts as support.



The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.

If we break down, any move close to 46.00 should be a buy.

There were a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st.  Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude and NatGas.

Watch the red Fibonacci retracement lines and the blue planetary averages.

Also watch the 15 and 45 day sma. The 15 day appears to be rolling over perhaps both preparing for a trip down to their Primary cycle troughs.

On the following daily chart of crude note the green lines sloping up. This is the price line for the Sun/Earth. The blue lines moving horizontal is the Pluto priceline.



Note how price often follows the Sun price line up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto price line.

Financial Astrology October 16, 2017

There will be no post this week thanks to the lack of an Internet connection.

Thank you Bell Canada for your lack of service. Bell's response to the problem was nonexistent.

I'll try for a small post during the week.

October 18th may be the day the Shanghai exchange starts selling Crude which is payable with physical Gold which is also available at the Shanghai exchange. This maybe the start of testing as I'm not aware there has been any up to now.

It looks like there was a serious internet problem last week and may still be a problem depending on where you live.

The main stream media seems silent on the problems.

SP500

The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse. The energy of the eclipse of this ellipse is still being felt. First from Harvey, Irma and then an 8.1 then a 7.1 earthquake in Mexico. Now possible volcanic activity in Bali.

We are now 7th week along and looking for a pullback into the nominal 6 week cycle low. This could extend into a nominal 9 ½ week sub-cycle but I think not. I’m looking for the market to pull back next week. but I’m not looking for a crash. 

Note this last Primary cycle low was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicates a possible change in trend near October 9-23 . Look for surprise events. The rules for reading the Bradley indicator are in Section 9 of the subscribers report.



On Monday October 9th there is a Sun square Pluto aspect. The indices often go down after this aspect. October 9 is also 34 tds (trading days and a Fibonacci number.) from the August 21 Primary trough.

There are a number of different types of Astrology. The two main types are Vedic and Western Astrology. We mainly use Western / Mundane Astrology on this blog but occasionally will use Vedic Astrology. In Vedic Astrology the financial markets often go down when Venus moves through Vedic Virgo. That starts Monday October 9th as well.

Jupiter will be entering Scorpio this week, a fixed water sign. Jupiter, known as the grand benefict can also indicate that which is overdone, particularly in the intense sign of Scorpio. In mundane astrology Scorpio relates to financial relations with foreign countries, crime and public safety. This may manifest in the religious or judicial world. The national or state religion and  priests. The justice system, prominent judges, barristers and national inquiries. Jupiter in Scorpio would also refer to a nation’s wealth, banks and bankers. Watch for these in the coming weeks. Jupiter spends approx. 1 year in a sign.

The longer term aspects we have been mentioning are still in orb.
Jupiter in opposition to Uranus on September 28.

Mars in opposition to Neptune on September 24.

There is also a third aspect on October 7th, Uranus semi-square Neptune. This is the 172 year cycle. I don’t usually cover semi-squares but this aspect is between two long orbit planets. These two planets have been close to a semi-square for a number of months.

I had also mentioned that this timeframe may affect Israel and possibly other countries. North Korea is still active and may be for some time. Watch October 7 - 11 for actions that may have longer term consequences.

From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Uranus / Neptune
Suddenly incapacitated, unconsciousness, Checkmated, Crisis, Revolution, Dead Persons.

In addition to the above there is a potent transit between transiting Saturn square the USA natal Neptune. Hard aspects to the USA's Neptune and Mars often coincide with financial disruption. Saturn will square the USA Neptune and oppose it's natal Mars 3 times in 2017. January, July and October.

The effect of Saturn square Neptune can be deflationary. With the buildup of credit in the economy aspects could bring on defaults, cash shortages putting stress on the credit markets. Saturn / Uranus is coming up in November.

From a Mundane Astrology perspective, it covers socialism, and left wing political ideas. It is associated with mobs, secret plots, fraud, swindling, bogus companies, loss and liquidation. This same aspect was near exact during the election period



From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Saturn / Neptune
Habit, things of long duration, sickness, chronic conditions.


The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The 5 month cycle was September 4. The 5-month cycle often is at the start of a slide down but not sliding yet. This looks to be inverted.



The Pluto Direct signature on Sept 28 has a history of occurring close to 50 week cycles.


The following chart is the 50 week cycle. The pink vertical lines are the 50 week cycle. The red squares show the Sun conjunct the North Node. The blue squares are Saturn turning direct. Both signatures have a history with the 50 week cycle.



I had mentioned a math based approach on the Gold section on last weeks blog. It had forecast a low on September 26 +- 1 td (trading days).

I’ve tried one more and it is forecasting a change in trend for the SP500. The date is October 9 again +- 1 td.

I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 24 degrees on the following daily chart. The blue vertical lines are 24 cd’s (calendar days).

The next hits are Oct 16 then Nov 1st.

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

These price lines can act as support / resistance. It has been at highs and lows. Note also when they cross often gets a reaction in price on a short-term basis. Also note, near the top of the chart is a light blue line. This is the Neptune PriceLine. Note how it has been strong resistance to price but has broken through.



In summary with the aspects in front of us I’m looking for a surprise event to turn the markets within the next two weeks. No matter what the foretasted price movement is, the reality is the major US indices are in weekly uptrends. The indices have to start moving down. For example the SP500 below 2485.

Gold

Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th. July 10th was the Primary cycle low and we are now 13 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. The Primary cycle has an average length of 18 weeks but has a range from 15 to 22 weeks.

Sept 8th was the nominal 9 ½  week crest and may be the Primary cycle crest as well. We now wait for a further pullback or reversal up. A key timeframe may be around October 15-17. Gold may also have put in a trough on Friday. Watch Gold closely next week.

With the Shanghai exchanges covering both Gold and Crude this will reduce the number of US dollars used in trading these items. The  Jupiter / Uranus opposition and also Pluto turning Direct last week are still in orb and could affect Gold in a positive way. The latter has a  history of turns in Gold. Both need +- a few trading days.

Note on the first Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold had stopped moving down around 23.16% fibonacci retracement and then moved down again last week..

I’m looking for Gold to put in a trough and then move up approx.  weeks. Then down to the Primary cycle low.



The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.



The following chart shows the 39 td cycle. It is the blue vertical line.The 61.8% Fibobanni retracement around 1281 may offer resistance going back up.



I was looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year but this may be delayed. The 4th quarter of 2017 may still see a rising Gold price.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on October 2nd. and the next October 30th.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Note that price peeked below the Mars price line but closed almost on it. We often see support / resistance at the Mars price lines.



Oct 16, 17 are two other dates to watch for a turn in Gold. This is 15 weeks along.

Crude

We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the Primary cycle.  The move out of that date  looks like the start of a Primary cycle. We are entering the 15th week.

The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See again on Sept 14. Crude moved down sharply on Friday October 6th. Crude should be a buy around 46.00.

Crude has now hit the Fib retracement at 23.6%. Like Gold we may head down here and watch to see if the average longitude acts as support.

The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.

If we break down, any move close to 46.00 should be a buy.

There were a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st.  Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude and NatGas.

From last week:
“Watch the period around September 28 where Jupiter aspects both Neptune and Uranus. Venus opposes Neptune in the same time frame.”

Also from last week:
“September 24 could mark a turn in crude where we have Mars opposing Neptune. In fact the next two weeks will have multiple aspects to Neptune and Uranus. It may be volatile.”

So the turn so far was Sept 28th. Watch the red Fibonacci retracement lines and the blue planetary averages.

Also watch the 15 and 45 dat sma. Both appear to be rolling over perhaps both preparing for a trip down to their Primary cycle troughs.



On the following daily chart of crude note the green lines sloping up. This is the price line for the Sun/Earth. The blue lines moving horizontal is the Pluto priceline.

Note how price often follows the Sun priceline up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto priceline.

From last week:
“I suspect we will break down through the Pluto priceline”.

And Friday Oct 6 crude moved sharply down through the Pluto price line.
