Financial Astrology - January 4, 2015

The markets were moving down during the low volume, slow Christmas week.  The move down leaves us lower than Dec 5th, which I thought would be the high. As it turns out it may have been close.  

For the SP500, Cycle-wise we are in the 12th week of a Primary  1  cycle (aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks) starting at the Oct 15th low.

The long discussed 6th instance of the Uranus / Pluto waxing square was exact on Monday, Dec 15th and will be in orb until the 7th and last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The two planets will be very close for the next 3 months. Perhaps we will see the dramatic moves in the markets we have expected as a number of planets make aspects to the Uranus, Pluto square.

This coming month, January, will witness a number of astrological aspects which could be explosive both for the markets and world events in general. This period of time, that the Uranus Pluto square has been active, has put a spotlight on ideological extremism. This has been seen in the fanaticism of ISIL and warring factions of political parties in many countries.

We won't have long to wait as the Sun will translate the Uranus / Pluto square on January 3, 2015 +- a couple of TD's (trading days). This time period may generate some world event as there is another astrological event on the weekend as well. If there is no significant event early next week there is another such time frame, and probably stronger, later in the month. This first quarter should be very telling for the rest of the year. Any time we have Pluto involved in an aspect we should consider "debt" as being an issue.

As a general statement going forward. For the past couple of years I have been forecasting troughs and crests in the general market indices. There has been no mention of market crashes or more dire events. The strength of the market has been impressive although it may have been manipulated up in the US and other markets, ex. Japan.

For 2015 and the first quarter of 2016 we'll be looking to call a more severe market turn and possible crash. More precise time frames are reserved for subscribers.

There are a number of longer term market cycles that could hit in 2015. Two we've discussed before are the 4 year cycle and the 6 year cycle. There are a number of longer term cycles as well which are covered in the market letter.

Historically we are entering the strong period of the year for the markets but, the first quarter of 2015 has many astrological events which may appear extreme and negative for the markets. It will be interesting to see how the central banks of the world react if there is a strong move in the market, either up or down.

Turn on your speakers.

Gold put in a trough on Nov 7th. This would put us in the 9th week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week) during this coming week, Dec 22 may have been the nominal 6 week low but we have had poor progress out of the trough if Dec 22 was indeed the low.

Gold is still sitting on the downward sloping trend line (light blue) and leaves Gold almost on the 45 day simple moving average (sma). The high for the day touched the 15 day sma.

If this recent action is to turn out positive for Gold it has to start moving up with some conviction almost immediately. Perhaps some extreme event will get precious metals moving up. Watch precious metals early in the week for a move (up or down) as both the Sun and Pluto, which have an effect on Gold are in aspect over the weekend.

Silver also appears to be in the 9th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 on
Nov 7th. looks like the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) trough. Like Gold, Silver needs to move up with some conviction or it is in danger of a sharp move down.

This week should start the 17th week of the Primary cycle. I expect a period of sideways consolidation looking for crude to settle in a range around $50.00-55.00 .

The questions are how long will it take demand to clear built up inventories of crude world wide and how much will continuing weak demand in 2015 effect crude inventories in 2015. I'm also expecting an increase in war like activity in the first quarter of 2015. If this affects any crude producing countries we could see an abrupt change in crude prices.

Astrologically there are aspects this weekend which could affect crude and also around Jan 15-21st.
