Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.
We are entering the summer period where interest and action in the markets and financials in general usually dissipates somewhat. We will continue with the weekly blog posts but the posts will be shorter than usual with a couple of weekends off. I will get back to a normal post in late August.
The biggest astrological event was Solar eclipse and the aspects around it, on July 2, 2019. Solar eclipses often coincide with significant earthquakes. In this case there were significant earthquakes in California and west coast of Canada. The following dates are all +- 3 td’s.
July 14 Sun opposition Pluto
May be pointing to a change in trend for the SP500.
July 15 Saturn parallel Pluto
If the planets are both North or both South of the ecliptic, the parallel aspect is read as a conjunction. If they are the same declination but one is North and one is South, then the contra-parallel is read as a 180 degree opposition.
Saturn is the planet of security, protectionism, tradition, convention, conservative (rear vision) thinking, economy, cost cutting, lower prices, business slowdowns, recession, poverty, farmers, mining, coal, the weather, storms, floods, droughts, disease, fear, suffering and me-first.
Pluto is the planet of drastic situations, cooperation, coercion, groups, gangs, crowds, mobs, human rights groups, human welfare workers, dictators, criminals, crime networks, insidious crimes, subtle cunning, inversion and misinformation.
There will be a number of aspects involving Venus From July 16 through the end of the month. Among other things aspects to Venus may involve a countries currency.
We are entering the 6th week of a new Primary cycle which started on June 3, 2019. In the current situation I am looking for a crest of the 6 week cycle and then a move down to the either the 6 week or 9 week cycle trough.
I am also looking for the Sun opposition Pluto on July 14 and Saturn parallel Pluto on July 15 as the triggers. The Primary cycle is approx. 18 weeks. and can have 3-6 week sub cycles or 2-9 week cycles. Both of these aspects are +- 5 td’s (trading days). If the SP500 has not started down by July 22 I will sit and watch for awhile.
Jupiter square Neptune which we have mentioned numerous times may be the real problem as these planets in aspect can be quite inflationary. This may be pointing to serious financial problems late 2019 or early on 2020.
The Jupiter / Neptune square is still in scope and the effects are still being felt.
Gold I am now looking for Gold to trend down although this may not be immediate. The Sun opposition Pluto is often favorable for Gold.
Gold is in the 7th week of the new 18 week Primary cycle. This would be another reason for Gold to go down here and is past due for a 6 week cycle trough. This could go to a 9 week cycle trough.
Crude's Crude started up on Dec 24, 2018. We are either entering the 24th week of the Primary cycle or we started a new Primary cycle on June 5 and we are 6 weeks along..
We may have had the Primary Cycle trough for crude oil on June 5. This needs more confirmation. Crude may be quite volatile over the summer months and into the late summer (i.e. Sept 21, 2019).
We are currently entering a new Primary cycle starting on June 3, 2019. We are 6 weeks along.
I’m looking at this as a Primary cycle trough and going up in a new Primary. The new Primary started on June 3 and we are 6 weeks along. Remember the Jupiter square Neptune where lies are covered up and general untruths are spoken. It is still in orb.
The Primary cycle is approx.18 weeks and is typically composed of 3- 6 week sub-cycles or 2-9 week sub-cycles or a combo of both.
The 15 day sma is red, the 45 day sma is blue and the light blue is the 200 day sma. Note; the normal Fibonacci retracement levels are 23.6%, 38.2%, 50.0 %, and 61.8%.
One can also use extended retracements which typically use the square roots of one of the above. So, I also use SqrRoot(61.8) = 78.6 and SqrRoot(78.6) = 88.6.
The green vertical lines are a 27 CD (calendar day) cycle next due July 11, 2019.
The above daily chart shows upcoming medium term cycles at the bottom of the chart.
Light blue is the 40-week
Red is the 20-week
Light green 10-week
Brown is the 5 week
Whenever we get longer term aspects we should look at other planets in transit that may hit the longer term aspect.
When looking at any Astro analysis for 2019 we should remember the effect of Jupiter square Neptune and Saturn conjunct Pluto. These aspects will be with us all year and beyond.
All dates +- 3 td’s (trading days) at a minimum.
From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.” “Late June through early July may see more geophysical activity.”
See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS. Geophysical activity has been picking up.
The red averages are based on the 20 week so they are shifted 10 weeks or a ½ cycle. This is known as a centered moving average.
The Bradley Indicator
This stock index forecasting tool was designed by astrologer Donald Bradley and published in 1947 in a booklet titled "Stock Market Prediction".
On the cover this tool is called the Planetary Barometer and inside the booklet it is called a Siderograph. Now it is simply called "the Bradley". The
Bradley is meant to forecast major and minor turning-points (where a trend will reverse) in either the Dow Jones Industrial Average or SP500 indexes. Bradley's work was obviously on the DJIA.
It does not forecast or anticipate whether that turning-point will be a high or a low. It has no polarity. The Bradley may turn up while the DJIA turns down. The amplitude of the Bradley swing is also not important. It only finds periods where trend changes occur.
It should be understood Astrologers in decades gone by who had no computers, spreadsheets, or databases to analyze data typically worked with much smaller data sets than we do today. This maybe why the Bradley worked so well when it first came out in 1947 but now is somewhat unreliable. Now, it goes through periods where it works fairly well but then can stop operating for months at a time. Originally it was for geocentric astrology (Earth centered) but there are now heliocentric models (Sun centered) and others.
In Bradley's own words:
"At no time must the reader gain the impression that a siderograph, as such, is a prediction of what the stock market will actually do. Nevertheless, observation proves that basic reversals in collective attitudes, clearly predicted by the line, are inevitably mirrored in stock averages"
So if the Bradley only identifies trend changes, what are trend changes?
- a rising market changes to a falling market
- a rising market changes to sideways
- a sideways market starts going up
- a sideways market starts going down
- a market going down changes to a rising market
- a falling market starts going sideways
The indicator is pointing to a change in trend for the SP500.
Gold found support at 1273, in fact it found support there 3 times. We have now moved up and Gold should be in the 7th week of a new Primary cycle which started on May 22. Like any new Primary cycle there may be a pullback in the 2nd or 3rd week. I’m also looking for the 7 week cycle trough although it could wait for the 9 week cycle trough.
I’ve had a bullish view but the US$ has to retreat. Bitcoin has been on the rise
The following chart shows two daily envelope channels. The vertical red lines are a 20 day cycle.
The following chart shows when Mars enters a new sign (red squares). It often affects Gold. Mars changes signs into Virgo.
Watch August 16, 2019 for a change in trend.
Watch for geophysical activity around this timeframe.
With the problems involving Iran and crude, transport prices may be going up.
I’m expecting crude to go up if problems persist between Iran and the US. Notice price broke through the 15 and 45 day sma.
We need more confirmation of this being a new Primary cycle.
I am expecting crude and possibly marijuana stocks to be affected by the Jupiter / Neptune square.
Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude.
Beyond affecting crude these two planets have to do with illusions and delusions. Thus marijuana stocks.
This puts us entering week 24 of the old Primary cycle or we have just started a new Primary cycle on June 5 and we are in the 6th week.
Following is a chart for crude with the 17 month crude cycle shown as the red vertical lines. The next 17 month cycle date is May 11, 2020
