Financial Astrology - January 21, 2019


UNDER CONSTRUCTION

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

Summary

SP500. It is possible the recent low was the 4 year low on December 24, 2018 or it is still forming. I’m now thinking of the 4 year being in front of us, perhaps near year end. See the chart below.

This does look like the Primary cycle low (18 week) on Dec 24.

If the current volatility continues watch for a cycle turn near February 11, 2019. This is the 33 week cycle.

See further down for the Jupiter square Neptune on January 13th.

Gold On the Gold chart we are in the 20th week of the Primary cycle started on Aug 6, 2018. If so, we should watch for a pull back for the Primary cycle low. Gold may be the trade of 2019.

Crude's  Crude started up on Dec 24. This should be the Primary cycle trough and we are entering the 3rd week.

SP500
The last Primary cycle trough started on June 28, 2018. We could and did have a secondary pull back, then a waterfall down move. The Primary cycle trough was on Dec 24th. We are currently in the 4th week of a new Primary cycle.

The Price moving averages, the 15 day sma is above price and price is above the 45 day sma.

The 15 day sma is curling up.

The recent move down was timing the 18-week Primary cycle and a 2 year cycle. The longer term cycles (2 year) can distort the shorter term cycles (18 week). As noted above we may be seeing the 4 year cycle low later in the year.

September 21 seems to be the crest of the last Primary cycle and may be the cycle high for the 4 year cycle.

The following dates may have significant moves or start of a move. The following aspects are for a reverse in trend or large range day.

Jan 13             Jupiter square Neptune
                        Vulnerable to deception and fraud. Things that get overdone.
                        On the other hand can be Lucky, shortage of money
                        Credits and downgrades`
                        Due to retrograde motion this signature will be with us most of the year.

Jan 20             Venus Sesquisquare Uranus
                        Unstable displays of feelings.
                       
Jan 20             Venus square Neptune
                        Unstable feelings, blind spots.

Jan 21             Lunar eclipse
                        This Lunar eclipse is in Aquarius / Leo. Looking back to the previous Lunar                          eclipse on July 27. 2018 it was also on the Uranus / Leo axis. That was a period                          where the issue of children being separated from their parents. These issues                                          may appear again near the upcoming eclipse around Jan 21, 2019. Social justice                                    may be a recurring theme near the eclipse date.
                       
                        This is a powerful Fire / Air Lunar eclipse, it’s a SuperMoon and is directly                          overhead in Washington DC.
                        The Moon placement is almost conjunct the Uranian point “Vulcanus” . Vulcanus                         Is a Transneptunian Planet which stands for great power and potential. There                          maybe geophysical events. Vulcanus is close to volcanoes.
                       

                        This powerful Lunar eclipse is also a Supermoon meaning the Moon                                                     approx.. coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth                         in its elliptical orbit.

Jan 25             Mars trine Jupiter
                        Confidence and energy.

                        Like Mars square Saturn this signature effects Gold as well.
                       
Jupiter square Neptune will be with us for most of the year. Due to retrograde motion Jupiter will square Neptune 3 times. This combination can point to an increase in spending, inflation and potential debt problems and bankruptcies. This could be on and off all year. Neptune alone is about illusion and delusion. Jupiter can be very favorable but tends to overdoing things.

What will probably not be favorable will be Venus conjuncting both Saturn and Pluto in the week of February 18th.

Dates are a minimum +- 7 tds unless otherwise noted. On longer timed aspects a time frame will be included.




I was  looking for a turn near Jan 14 or Jan 18 but this did not occur.

Jan 18 may still result in a turn. See the Bradley Indicator at the end of this section.
If the current volatility continues watch for a cycle turn near February 11, 2019. This is the 33 week cycle.

The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. This is the basis of what we have been forecasting on.

Following is the 24 Harmonic chart we have shown for many months.

The Jan 2 date was a big range day. It is trying to move through the Jupiter Price line (blue)



The next hits are Feb 20, 2019 and April 10, 2019.

The 4 Year cycle



The above chart shows the 4 year (red). The last 4 year cycle trough was Feb 2016. The next 4 year cycle should be Dec 2019 +- 10 months. See the chart.

From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.”

See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS. There was a significant earthquake in Alaska 4 weeks ago. Geophysical activity has been picking up.

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan, Hawaii, Philippines, others.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines). The 15 year is due now or took place April – June 2018. The 45 year due in Sept 2019. This is another example of a longer-term cycle possibly distorting shorter term cycles. Bear in mind they need a broad orb.



Although we do not have enough data the 45 year cycle pointing to Sept 2022 this could also be the 90 year cycle. We do not have enough data to make the 90 year call. For a 90 year cycle I’m looking at 1842 – 1932 and then 2022.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows 2 Envelope channels. Red is the centered 
20 week envelope channel. Blue is the centered 40 week envelope channel. The dark blue squares are the Sun / Neptune square which is often a short term change in trend.

We have had this noted it was due for a sell.  Also note the dark blue squares. They are the dates of the Mars square Uranus transit.



We are entering the difficult time mentioned over the last few months.

The red averages are based on the 20 week so they are shifted 10 weeks or a ½ cycle.

I brought up Iran on the last couple of posts. I’ll come back to those charts on any potential signs of conflict. It is getting close. Watch the news for problems with Iran.


Other

Other cycles and Astrological events are the 20 year cycle and heliocentric Jupiter in Sagittarius.

The vertical black lines are the 20 year cycle. Note the lows. It is due again near March 2022 but it needs a wide orb.

The blue x’s show when heliocentric Jupiter is in Sagittarius. This, most often, has the market moving up. The next chart shows both these items. The aspect Heliocentric Jupiter in Sagittarius came from MMA and Timing Solutions.



2019 Eclipses

See the previous blog post for more details on the eclipses.

Date                Eclipse                                   Saros Cycle               Sign

Jan 6, 2019     Solar Partial                            122                              15Cp25
Jan 21, 2019   Total Lunar                              134                              00Le51
July 2, 2019     Solar Total                               127                              10Cn37

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 red line is the Bradley Indicator.




Gold

Gold is 101 td (trading days) or 21 weeks away from the Primary cycle bottom on Aug 16, 2018.

This could be near the end of the 3nd 6 week cycle. The Primary cycle is approx. 18 weeks long and we are at the 21st week. We should see a Primary cycle trough in January 2019.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length.

I’m looking for a crest in Gold in January 2019 (we may have just had it, and note heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius, just ended on January 17.

Gold has been forming a Cup and Handle pattern as follows.



This would be a more definitive formation if it was rising when entering the pattern.

Gold may be the best performing commodity in the first half of 2019. Look for a pull back before precious metals moves higher.

I’m expecting a pull back and then up.



The following chart shows two daily envelope channels. We may see a pullback near Jan 8. The vertical red lines are a 20 day cycle.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last being Dec 3, 2018. The next is Jan 28,t 2019. Note that price is moving up in the Mars price line (red).

The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold had been moving up and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the red Mars price line as a positive sign for a move up in Gold. Gold may follow the red, Mars price line up. Watch closely.

The small blue x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold when Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius. That is where heliocentric Mercury is right now until Jan 16, 2019. That maybe where we get a pullback or turn.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 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 chart shows when Mars enters a new sign.(red squares). It often affects Gold. Mars is in Aries and changes signs into Taurus on Feb 14, 2019.
This is just about 18 weeks so we may see a Primary cycle trough close to this date. Watch for geophysical activity around this timeframe.



Crude

Oil is recovering from a strong move down. The low on Dec 24 may be the Primary cycle low and may turn out to be a larger cycle low.

Price  broak through the 45 day sma and the 15 day is curling up.

On Jan 13 we have Jupiter square Neptune. Both are co-rulers of Pisces which rules crude amongst other things. As mentioned, this square will be seen off and on during 2019. Among other things this square can indicate a period where things get overdone including the price of crude.



This puts us entering week 4.

On the next chart note how price often follows the Sun price line up (green line) and often stops and reverses at the Sun price line or the Pluto price line (blue). We often get big range days.  The red vertical lines are the 40 cd (calendar day) lines. Crude price often bounce on a Pluto price line (blue) as well.

Watch the green Sun price line and see if crude follows that price line up.



And finally, a weekly chart of crude showing a 17 / 34 month cycle. Red vertical lines. The 17 month cycle chart is shown below. Note the Fibonacci retracement at 23.6% or 59.41.

From late December through the first Eclipse in Jan 5, 2019 watch for a geophysical event close to any earthquakes or volcanos.

See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS. There was a significant earthquake in Alaska 4 weeks ago. Geophysical activity has been picking up.

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan, Hawaii, Philippines, others.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines).

Gold

Gold is 100 td (trading days) or 20 weeks away from the Primary cycle bottom on Aug 16, 2018.

This could be near the end of the 3nd 6 week cycle. The Primary cycle is approx. 18 weeks long and we are at the 20th week. We should see a Primary cycle trough in January 2019.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length.

I’m looking for a crest in Gold in January 2019 (we may have just had it, and note heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius, often favorable for precious metals.

Gold may be the best performing commodity in the first half of 2019. Look for a pull back before precious metals moves higher.

For those who use chart patterns Gold is currently at the handle of a “Cup and Handle” configuration. Google it if unsure.

Price is now  above the 15 sma and the 45 day sma. Both have turned up and looking positive but I’m expecting a pull back and then up.



The following chart shows two daily envelope channels. We may see a pullback near Jan 8. The vertical red lines are a 20 day cycle.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last being Dec 3, 2018. The next is Jan 28,t 2019. Note that price is moving up in the Mars price line (red).

The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold had been moving up and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the red Mars price line as a positive sign for a move up in Gold. Gold may follow the red, Mars price line up. Watch closely.

The small blue x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold when Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius. That is where heliocentric Mercury is right now until Jan 16, 2019. That maybe where we get a pullback or turn.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 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.




Crude

Oil is recovering from a strong move down. The low on Dec 24 may be the Primary cycle low and may turn out to be a larger cycle low.

Price is trying to break through the 45 day sma and the 15 day is curling up. I’m looking for a minor reversal before it continues.

On Jan 13 we have Jupiter square Neptune. Both are co-rulers of Pisces which rules crude amongst other things.



This puts us entering week 3.

On the next chart note how price often follows the Sun price line up (green line) and often stops and reverses at the Sun price line or the Pluto price line (blue). We often get big range days.  The red vertical lines are the 40 cd (calendar day) lines. Crude price often bounce on a Pluto price line (blue) as well.

Watch the green Sun price line and see if crude follows that price line up.



And finally, a weekly chart of crude showing a 17 / 34 month cycle. Red vertical lines. The 17 month cycle chart is shown below.

Financial Astrology - January 7, 2019


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

Summary

SP500. It is possible the recent low was the 4 year low on December 24, 2018 or it is still forming. This would also be the Primary cycle low (18 week). The low and end of the previous 4 year cycle was February 11, 2016.

If the current volatility continues watch for a cycle turn near February 11, 2019. This is the 33 week cycle.

Last week: “Starting Jan 2, 2019 Mars will cross 0 degrees of declination from South to North. Mars will be more active than usual including planets that aspect Mars and I expect more violence, war like activity or threats. Watch for earthquake or volcanic activity. We must wait on this call until we see further price action”.
There were a number of volcanos with one generating a tsunami.

Gold On the Gold chart we are in the 18th week if the Primary cycle started on Aug 6, 2018. If so we should watch for a pull back for the Primary cycle low. Gold may be the trade of 2019.

Crude's  Has been weak and will probably see continued losses into the 1st quarter of 2019.

SP500
The last Primary cycle trough started on June 28, 2018. We could and did have a secondary pull back, then a waterfall down move so the Primary cycle trough is not firm yet. Currently it is at the 18 week cycle. It may have put in the cycle low on Dec 24, 2018.

The Price moving averages, the 15 day sma is below price and price is below the 45 day sma. Both the 15 and 45 sma’s are pointed down, not good.

The recent move down was timing the 18-week Primary cycle and a 2 year cycle. The longer term cycles (2 year) can distort the shorter term cycles (18 week). As noted above we may be seeing the 4 year cycle low.

September 21 seems to be the crest of the last Primary cycle and may be the cycle high for the 4 year cycle.

The following dates may have significant moves or start of a move. The following aspects are for a reverse in trend or large range day. Volatile week.

Jan 5               Solar Eclipse.
                        See the eclipse section of this report

Jan 6               Uranus Direct
                        Has a history of Primary cycle change.
                        May have a reversal in prices.

Jan 13             Jupiter square Neptune
                        Vulnerable to deception and fraud.
                        On the other hand can be Lucky, shortage of money
                        Credits and downgrades`

January 2019 may not be too comfortable.

Dates are a minimum +- 7 tds unless otherwise noted. On longer timed aspects a time frame will be included.



From last week, Gaps have been filled.

I’m looking for a turn near Jan 7 or Jan 14 or Jan 18. All +- 3 td’s.

If the current volatility continues watch for a cycle turn near February 11, 2019. This is the 33 week cycle.

The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. This is the basis of what we have been forecasting on.

Following is the 24 Harmonic chart we have shown for many months.

The Jan 2 date was a big range day. It is trying to move through the Jupiter Price line (blue)



The next hits are Feb 20, 2019 and April 10, 2019.

The 9 month cycle



The above chart shows the 9 month or 39 week cycle (blue vertical lines). It is due on early February 2019. +- 10 td.s. The 20 week cycle was added as well (red vertical lines).

The next 40 week cycle is early February 2019.

From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.”

From late December through the first Eclipse in Jan 5, 2019 watch for geophysical event.

See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS. There was a significant earthquake in Alaska 3 weeks ago. Geophysical activity has been picking up.

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan, Hawaii, Philippines, others.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines). The 15 year is due now or took place April – June 2018. The 45 year due in Sept 2019. This is another example of a longer-term cycle possibly distorting shorter term cycles. Bear in mind they need a broad orb.



The following daily chart of the SP500 shows 2 Envelope channels. Red is the centered 
20 week envelope channel. Blue is the centered 40 week envelope channel. The dark blue squares are the Sun / Neptune square which is often a short term change in trend.

We have had this noted it was due for a sell.  Also note the dark blue squares. They are the dates of the Mars square Uranus transit.



We are entering the difficult time mentioned over the last few months.

The red averages are based on the 20 week so they are shifted 10 weeks or a ½ cycle.

I brought up Iran on the last couple of posts. I’ll come back to those charts on any potential signs of conflict. It is getting close. Watch the news for problems with Iran.

4 Year
As noted above the 4 year cycle may have just put in it’s trough.

The Primary cycle top on Sept 21, 2018 at 2929 may have been the crest for the 4 year cycle. This is not confirmed.

Other

Another very long term cycle, the 90 year, is potentially around 2022 +- a lot. More time is needed to confirm this cycle. The ½ cycle to the 90, the 45 year ties into the 90 and is due in the same time frame.

2019 Eclipses

I will use this list and include details on the current eclipse. The first one is Jan 6, 2019, Saros cycle 122.

Each eclipse is a member of a Saros cycle. I will go into details later.

Basically, the Saros cycle shows an 18 year cycle which repeats backwards in time. These are not exact but highlight the same themes. We are looking for similar themes.

For Saros cycle 122 that means the following years will have similar themes. The third previous cycle is 18 * 3 = 54, which is 1964/1965. The exact eclipse date is Dec 4, 1964. The third eclipse in a Saros cycle will shadow the same area on Earth.

I am concentrating on the 54th year which is 1964 / 1965.

2001
            Some of the themes in 2001 are:
  • Ariel Sharon wins election in Israel (Feb. 6). Right-wing leader chosen overwhelmingly as nation's fifth prime minister in just over five years during worst Israeli-Palestinian violence in years. Background: Middle East.
  • The long-simmering resentment of Macedonia's ethnic Albanians erupts into violence in March. The rebels seek greater autonomy within Macedonia. After six months of fighting, a peace agreement is signed (Aug. 13). British-led NATO forces enter the country and disarm the guerrillas. Background: Macedonia and the Balkans.
  • U.S. spy plane and Chinese jet collide (April 2); Sino-American relations deteriorate during a standoff. The 24 crew members of the U.S. plane were detained for 11 days and released after the U.S. issued a formal statement of regret.
  • Former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic is delivered to UN tribunal in The Hague to await war-crime trial (June 29).
  • Without U.S., 178 nations reach agreement on climate accord, which rescues, though dilutes, 1997 Kyoto Protocol (July 23).
  • In response to Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, U.S. and British forces launch bombing campaign on Taliban government and al-Qaeda terrorist camps in Afghanistan (Oct. 7). Bombings continue on a daily basis. Background: Afghanistan.
  • Irish Republican Army announces that it has begun to dismantle its weapons arsenal, marking a dramatic leap forward in Northern Ireland peace process (Oct. 23). Background: Northern Ireland Primer.
  • At a UN-sponsored summit in Bonn, Germany, Afghani factions meet to create a post-Taliban government (Nov. 27). Hamid Karzai is selected as head of the transitional government (Dec. 5). Background: Who's Who in Afghanistan.
  • Taliban regime in Afghanistan collapses after two months of bombing by American warplanes and fighting by Northern Alliance ground troops (Dec. 9).
  • Israel condemns the Palestinian Authority as a "terror-supporting entity" and severs ties with leader Yasir Arafat following mounting violence against Israelis (Dec. 3). The Israeli Army beOklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeighexecuted (June 11).
  • gins bombing Palestinian areas. Background: Middle East.
  • Terrorists attack United States. Hijackers ram jetliners into twin towers of New York City's World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A fourth hijacked plane crashes 80 mi outside of Pittsburgh (Sept. 11). Toll of dead and injured in thousands. Within days, Islamic militant Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaeda terrorist network are identified as the parties behind the attacks.
  • Anthrax scare rivets nation, as anthrax-laced letters are sent to various media and government officials. Several postal workers die after handling the letters (throughout October).
1983
            Some of the themes in 1983 are:
1965

Some of the themes in 1964/1965 are:
-          The Civil Rights Act of 1964
-          The first US combat troops arrive in Vietnam
-          Brezhnev becomes the 1st secretary of the Communist Party
-          China detonates it’s first Atomic bomb.
-          Malcom X shot to death. Riots
-          France withdraws its Atlantic fleet from NATO.
-          There are others but this should get the idea across.

Look for the same themes in 2019. Here is the chart



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 red line is the Bradley Indicator.




Gold

Gold is 96 td (trading days) or 19 weeks away from the Primary cycle bottom on Aug 16, 2018. This could be near the end of the 3nd 6 week cycle. The Primary cycle is approx. 18 weeks long and we are at the19th week. We should see a Primary cycle trough in January 2019.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length.

I’m looking for a crest in Gold in January 2019 and note heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius, often favorable for precious metals.

Gold may be the best performing commodity in the first half of 2019. Look for a pull back before precious metals moves higher.


Price is now  above the 15 sma and the 45 day sma. Both have turned up and looking positive.



The following chart shows two daily envelope channels. We may see a pullback near Jan 8. The vertical red lines are a 20 day cycle.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last being Dec 3, 2018. The next is Jan 28,t 2019. Note that price is moving up in the Mars price line (red).

The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold had been moving up and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the red Mars price line as a positive sign for a move up in Gold. Gold may follow the red, Mars price line up. Watch closely.

The small blue x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold when Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 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 chart shows when Mars enters a new sign.(red squares). It often affects Gold. Mars is moving into Aries on Dec 31. This is just about 18 weeks so we may see a Primary cycle trough close to this date.



Crude

Oil  put in a top on Oct. 3rd, 2018. I’m looking at some longer term cycles and technicals to get a handle on future direction.

Price is now down to the low on June 21, 2017 . This can be very telling for crude. Watch this for a possible bear market starting in crude.

June 18 was the date Neptune turned Retrograde and has been moving backwards until November 24th when Neptune turns Direct.

There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune. Both are co-rulers of crude. Coming up there is Jupiter squared Neptune on Jan 13, 2019.

This aspect, Jupiter square Neptune are both in their sign of rulership. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Neptune rules Pisces. Planets in their own sign are stronger than normal.

So crude may be affected by this square in a positive way or Neptune, the trickster, manifests and there is some confusion or dishonesty.

My understanding is the Saudis want to raise prices and the US is expanding it’s shale output, hoping to keep prices lower.



This puts us at week 2.

On the next chart note how price often follows the Sun price line up (green line) and often stops and reverses at the Sun price line or the Pluto price line (blue). We often get big range days.  The red vertical lines are the 40 cd (calendar day) lines. Crude price often bounce on a Pluto price line (blue) as well.

Watch the green Sun price line and see if crude follows that price line up.



And finally, a weekly chart of crude showing a 17 / 34 month cycle. Red vertical lines. The 17 month cycle chart is shown below.
