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 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 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.
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.
