                      - Subscriptions include the forecast dates and a monthly Market letter with                          eMail alerts for imminent trading opportunities
                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses

We will be sending ALERTS to subscribers with specific dates when there are imminent trading opportunities forming. There was a second ALERT sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and another on Sept 9th covering the critical dates in September

For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 11th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

An ALERT was sent out to subscribers on Aug 17th regarding the big move down from Aug 18th to 24th. A similar ALERT has been sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and Sept 9th covering key dates for September. The first date of the last ALERT has been hit. it was Sept. 17, 2015. There are eventful dates next week as well.

As this primary cycle started on July 7 and at this point made a crest on July 20th it is a very left translated and therefore quite bearish. I don't expect the high will be taken out during this nominal 18 week cycle. I'm expecting September to be very volatile and most likely we will see another sharp move.

The Sun entering Libra, a Cardinal sign often results in short term trend reversals and / or very volatile markets and big range days. The Sun enters Libra on Sept 23rd. There is another date that is on the last subscriber ALERT which may influence when the markets may test the recent lows.

Pluto energies should also be highlighted. Pluto is about transformation and degeneration. It is about extremes and the use or mis-use of power, including nuclear energy. In Capricorn this can stand for the people rebelling against the establishment or the "powers that be" using their power to control the people. Such control is often accomplished through fear. The Sun trines Pluto on Sept 5th. This is the trine that always occurs approx. 20 days before Pluto turns direct. Pluto turns direct this month.

Due to retrograde / direct motion (Pluto turns Direct and Mercury turning Retrograde) Mercury (the messenger) will square Pluto twice within 2 weeks, a very rare occurrence. It should be noted while Pluto energies take more of a center stage it will be opposing the Sun in the U.S. national chart. This is the first time Pluto has opposed the US Sun ever. Pluto moves very slowly. The Pluto / US Sun opposition has been going on since early February 2014. It should be noted, some countries that have experienced this aspect have gone through periods of massive change. This can best be described as a period of creative destruction where things are broken down in order to build up a new more functional and effective base. If you live in the U.S. this period will continue for a number of months, well into 2016. Movements like "Black Lives Mater" are a symptom of this energy. Perhaps the US market gyrations are symptom of this Pluto transit as well.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough. Due to the influence of other long term cycles I'm looking at December 2015 / January 2016 as a period of time for the 7 year cycle low.

On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle. Also note, after the sharp move down in August the bounce seems to be running out of steam and may be headed further down due to the FED meeting non-event. Look at both the Momentum indicator.

On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines. We'll come back to this chart when the markets settle down.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October 15, 2014 low. More details for subscribers.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.

DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on May 26th
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015  50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
RUT               Jun 23, 2015
COMPQX      July 20, 2015

Another chart is the following daily chart of the SP500 with a fan indicator. The dark blue fan line is 45 degrees. The starting point is the low at March 6, 2009. The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2126. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time. This is another bearish indicator.

Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn was in mutable signs, the colored x's. As mentioned above Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this month.

And one more showing the geocentric Jupiter / Saturn square (red squares) including the following note (Every pass of the waning square between Jupiter and Saturn that has been a 3 pass has resulted in a longer term cycle unfolding between the first and last passages). Could this forming low be it?  There is more useful information on this chart, reserved for subscribers.

In Summary
So subscribers had the September 17th date well in advance. In fact, subscribers get a 6 month list of potential turn dates when they register. If they look back at this list I had September 16th as the CIT date (Change In Trend). This list of dates was done in May of 2015. This is the power of Astrology. One can forecast important dates months or even years in advance. This list also had August 18th, the start of the severe move down.

There were a number of reasons I picked September 17th. Following is a list of some.
Mercury turned retrograde
Saturn entered Sagittarius
Jupiter opposed Neptune
Sept 17th was Fibonacci 233 td's from the October 15, 2014 low.

Most individual transits between two planets only forecast a change in trend and not the direction. The Astrologer forecasts the direction by taking into account all the other planetary positions and events, with an emphasis on the slower moving planets.

We will have an a number of trend changing aspects this month. Bear in mind the short term trend is down and the medium to longer term trend is up. Subscribers have dates where bigger moves are expected. Expect volatility and keep in mind the comments made above about Pluto and the United States natal Sun. There could be a surprise coming up, not necessarily related to the markets but may have an indirect effect.
There is a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse coming up on September 27th. Look for geophysical upsets, violent weather or Solar storms.

Saturn and Pluto energies will be active as will Mercury which often acts as a trigger. During the Mercury retrograde period buying and selling, communications and negotiations are highlighted. Buying and selling means the markets. This is a period where you should be careful signing agreements or any contractual commitments. Mercury retrograde can mark a period where don't work out as planned. This does not mean not to go ahead with anything, just be extra careful on what you are doing. Ray Merriman of MMA has a saying for Mercury retrograde periods "Take profits too soon". Good advice.

Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 8th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. We may have put in the nominal 6 week cycle trough on Sept 11th. If so Gold should be bullish here. The Fed's non action may have helped Gold.

With the currency wars heating up Gold should benefit. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. Gold often puts in a low while Jupiter moves through Virgo. Jupiter entered Virgo on August 11th and will be there until Sept 9, 2016.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.

On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold advanced to the heliocentric Venus price line (green). The Venus and Jupiter price lines cross on Monday. Watch Gold closely Monday for a move.

This coming week of Sept 21st we should be entering the 5th week of  a new nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. The Sun opposed Neptune on August 31. This is looking like the crest for the first nominal 6 week cycle of the Primary cycle. This would have the cycle quite left translated and therefore bearish. I expect bigger moves in crude in late November.

The following weekly chart for Crude shows the 16 week (red lines) and 24 week (blue lines). The green lines are when the red and blue lines converge. There is often a change in trend or big moves. The next occurrence is November 9th which is about a week away from Neptune turning direct. Neptune rules Crude.

Other items in the subscription letter, more specifics on the SP500, Gold and Crude also US$, NatGas, Coffee reserved for subscribers. At $99.00 for a 6 month subscription, can you afford not to have it?

The 2nd half 2015 dates and subscription to the monthly letter (starting in July) are available for purchase.
