This blog post will be a brief summary of 2016.

The World in 2016 - Difficult Economic Times

The world will be experiencing tough economic times for most of 2016.
Jupiter and Saturn are the business planets of the Zodiac, involved with buying and selling of goods and they will be active this coming year.

On January 7, 2016 Jupiter turns retrograde and moves to form a square aspect with Saturn on March 23. This is the 2nd of a 3 pass. This is the waning square of the Synodic cycle between Jupiter and Saturn. That same week Mercury turns Retrograde on January 5 often signaling a change in trend in the world's financial indices. These two planets turning retrograde in the same week should see a change in trend in the markets.

The Jupiter-Saturn square aspect will be a prominent feature this year. The third and final Jupiter-Saturn square, the business planets, should result in slower business activity and lower profits. The last square is May 26, 2016.

On March 26, 2016 Saturn turns retrograde and moves to form a square aspect with Neptune on June 17, 2016. The third and final Saturn-Neptune square aspect is September 10, 2016. This aspect is often present near times when there is a change in trend for interest rates or inflation. It can also be a period of sickness, suffering, depression and money valuation problems. This could be a change in the world's reserve currency or issues around it. A large increase in precious metals is also possible as it is a money valuation issue. This 36 year aspect has been associated with political changes, reforms and development of socialism.

Saturn will be in Sagittarius , a mutable sign, all year. Many of the largest stock market losses have occurred while Saturn is in a mutable sign. Watch the times when aturn is in close aspect to other planets.

Jupiter is square Pluto November 24, 2016 and opposition Uranus December 26.
Throughout 2016 Uranus and Pluto remain within orb of a square aspect. Uranus rules technology and technology stocks. Pluto rules computers, crime, computer hackers and cyber crime. This aspect would fit with computer security and the rise of serious cyber attacks.

There are 3 Mars conjunctions in 2016. Mars is conjunct Saturn August 24, 2016; Mars is conjunct Pluto on October 19; and Mars is conjunct Neptune on January 1, 2017.

Jupiter square Saturn, Saturn square Neptune, Uranus square Pluto and the 3 Mars conjunctions should be the major influences on world affairs during 2016.


There are many other aspects and Astrological events like eclipses (the Solar eclipse of March 9th is particularly strong with potential big news with both Saturn and Pluto making angles to this important eclipse) with many aspects and retrogrades. These will be dealt with as we move ahead in time.

The 1st half of 2016 forecast dates are complete. This is included with the subscription along with a monthly Astrological report and ALERTS during the year pointing to time periods where there are good trading opportunities.

Financial Astrology December 21, 2015

 - Our first half 2016 forecast dates will be available Dec 20th
                      - Subscriptions include the forecast dates and a monthly Market letter with                          eMail alerts for imminent trading opportunities

M E R R Y  C H R I S T M A S  to all.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 17th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the red line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Dec 7, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 17th week, with a dramatic move down on Dec 17th and 18th, it appears we had the Primary cycle crest  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

Note in the bottom right corner of the following chart is the forecasted time frame for the Primary cycle low. We should expect a Primary cycle low within a few weeks. If we reverse up from here then the low of Dec 14 would be the Primary cycle low. I'm looking for further lows although we may get a bounce first.

When we hit the trough for the Primary cycle I expect a left translated cycle and moves further down in the New Year.

We have mentioned a number of longer term cycles in previous blog posts and below.



From last weeks blog:
"Dec 14th has the Sun squaring Jupiter which often has a powerful effect on US indices, both up and down. Since we are in the 16th week of the Primary cycle watch for a potential Primary cycle trough.

Before last week I was looking for Dec 14 to be a high and then down but with last weeks move down we may see the Primary cycle trough near the Dec 14th date. It has a history of 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle turns."

So the SP500 did go down into December 14th. At this point this could be the trough of the Primary cycle although I suspect we'll go down further next week but may have a bounce first. I'm looking at the 1990 area. The most significant Astrological event is Uranus turning direct on Christmas day. This is also a Full Moon. The Uranus direct event could come into effect a week before or after the exact day. Think sudden unusual unplanned events.

We still have Uranus and Pluto in a long term aspect so an explosive event may be imminent. I would also expect the markets to be volatile over the next few weeks as well.

The following clears up some outstanding ALERTS sent to subscribers.

Alerts sent Dec 6, 2015
Gold
This Gold trade is still active and I'm long but a daily close below the Dec 3rd low and I'll close the trade. If Gold continues in sideways consolidation past this week I'll also close the trade. I had expected a Primary cycle low in this time frame and a move up.

SP500
I was looking for a high in the SP500 which did not go above the Nov 3rd high. We got that high on Dec 16th so I'm trading with a bearish outlook.

Alert sent Dec 17, 2015
SP500
This was a one day trade for Dec 18th where I was looking for a sharp drop. The indices did go down and I closed the trade on Dec 18th, afternoon.

Attacks from religious terrorists and general strife and discord should continue into December 2015 and again in mid-April 2016 when Mars turns stationary in religious Sagittarius (a mutable sign) and makes difficult aspects, conjunct Saturn and square Neptune. This is not a direct forecast, but points to a period of time where these events are more probable to occur.

Other than Uranus turning direct on Dec 25 there are no major transits over the next week. This signature is active for about a week before and a week after the exact date. Remember Uranus is still in square to Pluto and getting closer. Other long term transits mention last week are still in orb. They are Saturn square Neptune and Jupiter square Saturn. All things considered I'll be trading with a bearish outlook. The next two weeks are typically a quieter time in the markets but with Uranus involved we could get dramatic moves. We also have some of the longer term cycles coming due like the Kitchin cycle we have included for a few months (see below).

There are many other Astrological aspects and events in 2016 but these are the longer term aspects affecting the first half of 2016 as seen on the following chart which has been in previous posts for many weeks.



Simply the placement of planets in signs during the course of a year can have a dramatic effect.

For example, many of the U.S. largest stocks markets losses have occurred while
Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 20, 2017.
And Neptune continues to transit through Pisces (a mutable sign), the sign it rules. Neptune rules crude and water amongst other things.

The week of Dec 21 could be another hot spot with hard transits to the ISIS formation chart. This will also be a test if the date and time for the ISIS formation chart are correct.

Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules the law, religion, philosophy and science. With the square to Neptune is a good signal for a religious message that gets perverted.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan 2016 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb.

Other long term cycle due, including the 6.5 - 7 year.

The following weekly chart shows the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages and the fact price broke through both averages but moved down through the averages this past week. Also the 21 and 34 week moving averages are still pointing down or flat.  This was looking like a 4-Year low but now we've broken down through the averages, it may be a retest of the lows or moving to a deeper low. There are a number of powerful heliocentric aspects on Jan 29, 2016 +- a couple of weeks. One of these is the heliocentric Saturn / Neptune square.

The question is, do we have a significant low in front of us. At this point I think yes and it could be the December '15 - January '16 time frame.


The 1st half 2016 forecast dates will be available tomorrow or Monday latest.

The following chart shows the 2nd half 2015 forecast dates. These dates were forecast in May 2015 with no changes. Not bad. The red arrows point to the date. The direction of the arrows has no meaning, they are just pointing to the date.




Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th.

We are in the timeframe for a primary cycle low (nominal 18 week cycle) although Gold is currently in a sideways consolidation. This makes it difficult to pick the Primary trough. We are either in week 1 or week 3 of a new Primary or in week 22 of an older Primary.

As mentioned above, if I do not see at least a move out of the consolidation area the outstanding long trade will be cancelled.

I had bought Dec 2nd spike low. Even with a move up in Gold the move should be limited at this time.



I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year possibly at the end of the next primary cycle which may also be a 17 month cycle low. The move should be up. Subscribers have the potential dates. On the following daily chart we are in the area where the heliocentric Venus and Jupiter price lines cross. We often get sharp moves from this setup.



Crude
This coming week of Dec 21st we should be entering the 17th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

Crude has gone down since November 26th where we had Saturn square Neptune. We are watching closely for any aspect involving Jupiter and Neptune for turns in crude.

I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. As mentioned Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules and is most powerful here.

It is difficult to forecast Crude here with all the geopolitical events, OPEC and our climate change friends. I'll be changing focus to NatGas in the next few weeks. NatGas is very local so we'll look at NatGas prices in North America. I'll start this in the new year.

We should start looking for potential Primary cycle lows over the next few weeks, although crude prices may have further to go down with the current Astrological aspects and therefore may have a longer Primary cycle.

Looking at heliocentric aspects there is  a very interesting date on January 29th, 2016 +- a few.

Financial Astrology - December 14, 2015

 - Our first half 2016 forecast dates will be available Dec 20th
                      - 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
SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 16th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the red line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Dec 7, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 16th week, with a dramatic move down on Dec 11, it appears we had the Primary cycle crest  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

Note in the bottom right corner of the following chart is the forecasted time frame for the Primary cycle low. We should expect a Primary cycle low within a few weeks. When we hit a trough I expect a left translated cycle and moves further down in the New Year.
This coming week much depends on the FED announcement and the markets reaction to it.

We have mentioned a number of longer term cycles in previous blog posts and below.



From last weeks blog post we said:
"The main aspects that have a history in Primary cycle turns for the SP500 between now and the FED meeting announcement on Dec 16, 2015 are:

Dec 6               Mars waning square Pluto
Dec 10             Mars opposition Uranus
Dec 14             Sun waxing square Jupiter."

Dec 7, the first trading day after Dec 6th was down and started a multi-day move down.

Dec 10th was one day off the Dec 11 move down. Dec 11 was a New Moon in a Sagittarius, a mutable sign which often adds volatility to the markets and large price swings. This New Moon was also sextile Mars and trine Uranus bringing these powerful energies into the New Moon. Mars and Uranus were in opposition.

Dec 14th has the Sun squaring Jupiter which often has a powerful effect on US indices, both up and down. Since we are in the 16th week of the Primary cycle watch for a potential Primary cycle trough within 10 td's of Dec 14th.
The Sun squaring Jupiter it has a history of 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle turns.

Much will depend on the FED's meeting and announcement on raising interest rates and when. They may be announced but delayed. Whatever options comes out of the FED meeting on Dec 16th I believe we will be going down into Jan or starting early Jan '16.

Another option is we get a high near Dec 22, 23 where we have a number of transits to the ISIS formation group, then down.

The transits are volatile and military and may make for a difficult Christmas period.

Shorting is the only thing I would do with the US market indices but at this point I'll watch.

The only thing I'm long right now is Gold as it looks like it just put in it's Primary cycle trough. Remember the Saturn / Neptune square "is often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates and money valuation problems in general". Gold going up or down is a money valuation issue. So is a change in interest rates.

The FED increasing interest rates will of course be a negative for Gold and other world currencies.

With Mars, Uranus and Pluto in aspect an explosive event may be imminent. I would also expect the markets to be volatile over the next few weeks as well.

Attacks from religious terrorists and general strife and discord should continue into December 2015 and again in mid-April 2016 when Mars turns stationary in religious Sagittarius (a mutable sign) and makes difficult aspects, conjunct Saturn and square Neptune. This is not a direct forecast, but points to a period of time where these events are more probable to occur.

The main Astrological aspects affecting the 1st half of 2016 are:
Uranus square Pluto; the square  will not get to an exact position but continues to get close and may be emphasized around Jan 25, 2016. It's effect should be felt and seen most of the first half of 2016. This is a 32-37 year cycle and has correlation to capitalist economic cycles and will be in a downward phase until January 2020. There are many reasons 2020 should be a turn around or significant year. We will start analysis of the important events leading into 2020 in the next few subscriber reports.

Saturn waning square to Neptune will be in effect for most of 2016 but it's effects should lessen after September 2016. This transit has much to do with socialism and it's development. This is also a transit of deceit, illusion and delusion. This can be depressing and it's effects can appear as no one is in control.

Jupiter waning square Saturn will get to the second exact square of a 3 pass in late March 2016. What we have had on the longer term charts for some time " 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."  The first and last passages are August 3rd, 2015 and May 26, 2016. The lows in August and September 2015 may have been it. These two planets have long been known as the business planets and have a 20 year cycle length. It has been suggested every 3rd cycle equates to the Kondratieff cycle, that is 20 * 3 = 60 years. I'm not sure of the latter but I am sure there is a 240 year cycle with Jupiter and Saturn that is exact in 2020. More of this important event in future posts where we will discuss the Jupiter / Saturn conjunctions changing signs.

Taking all 3 of the transits together 2016 should be another difficult year as we work through many challenges which may result in changes in government, economic models and technology.

There are many other Astrological aspects and events in 2016 but these are the longer term aspects affecting the first half of 2016 as seen on the following chart which has been in previous posts for many weeks.



Simply the placement of planets in signs during the course of a year can have a dramatic effect.

For example, many of the U.S. largest stocks markets losses have occurred while
Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Saturn will be in Sagittarius until Dec 20, 2017.
And Neptune continues to transit through Pisces (a mutable sign), the sign it rules. Neptune rules crude and water amongst other things.

Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules the law, religion, philosophy and science. With the square to Neptune is a good signal for a religious message that gets perverted.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan 2016 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb.

The question is, do we have a significant low in front of us. At this point I think yes and it could be the December '15 - January '16 time frame.


Neptune is prominent particularly in the second half of November 2015. We've mentioned watching Jupiter and Neptune aspects and events for swings in crude. High and low. We've also noted Neptune often brings illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehood.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms. Lack of water, or a problem with water, is going to be a major problem in the not too distant future.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes.

DJIA               May 19, 2015
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014
SP500             May 20, 2015

One of our subscribers forwarded a report from another Astrologer, which amongst other things made the case for sharp market moves when the Moon is in Virgo (a mutable sign) and Saturn is in a mutable sign. Astrological events occurring in mutable signs can result in quick changes to financial markets, violent weather and geophysical events.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th.

We are entering either the 2nd week of the nominal 18 week cycle or the 21st week of an older primary. It appears Gold put in a Primary cycle trough on Dec 3rd in which case we would be heading up in the first week of a new Primary cycle. This is too early to confirm but we were late in the existing Primary cycle and just made a strong, but two day move on Dec 3rd and 4th.

I had brought up the possibility of a spike low in the subscribers letter, during the week, before we start a new Primary. We got the spike low on Dec 2nd, which I bought.



The pending FED decision will have an impact on the price of Gold. This could delay or mute what is normally a bullish move at the start of a new Primary cycle.

On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through four Venus price lines. Gold went below the Jupiter price line (blue) regained the Venus price line and Friday touched the Jupiter price line (blue). I'd like to see Gold follow a Venus price line up or jump to the next higher Venus price line currently near 1097.

As mentioned the FED does not want to see Gold prices rising and we may have to wait for Wednesday's announcement.

I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year possibly at the end of the next primary cycle which may also be a 17 month cycle low. The move should be up. Subscribers have the potential dates.



Crude
This coming week of Dec 14th we should be entering the 16th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

"In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune (Nov 26th) and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn on Nov 29th. "

Crude has gone straight down since late November.

I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. If they ever left. As mentioned Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules and is most powerful here.

Looking out at the major transits in 2016 I'll be looking for a bottom in crude in 2016. I've mentioned to look at dates near aspects to Jupiter and Neptune, the two planets that rule crude. Subscribers have a list of those dates to the end of the year.

It is difficult to forecast Crude here with all the geopolitical events, OPEC and our climate change friends. I'll be changing focus to NatGas in the next few weeks. NatGas is very local so we'll look at NatGas prices in North America.

We should start looking for potential Primary cycle lows over the next few weeks, although crude prices may have further to go down with the current Astrological aspects and therefore may have a longer Primary cycle.

Looking at heliocentric aspects there is  a very interesting date on January 29th, 2016 +- a few.

 - Our second half 2015 forecast dates are now available.

                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses
SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 15th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the red line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Dec 7, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 15th week, with a dramatic move up, it appears we had either the 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle top  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

From last weeks subscriber letter:
"I am also looking for a pullback the week of Nov 30th possibly as a result of some action near Nov 29th, +- a couple of TD's, where the Sun will square Neptune and conjunct Saturn."

We got the pullback I was waiting for but, the SP500 went up on Friday.

For Gold from last weeks subscriber letter.
"I believe we are close to a Primary cycle trough and expect Gold to rise next week, the week of Nov 30, 2015. Although we are looking for a short rise here, Gold has the potential to spike low for a final low for this Primary cycle. If I see a spike low forming I'll buy Gold for a short term move up after the spike low."

We got the spike low on Dec 2nd and it looks like Gold put in the Primary cycle low on Dec 3rd. This is not confirmed but we should be trending up from here. Note my previous comments that this Primary cycle surge maybe shorter than usual. Normally we would be looking at 2 - 4 weeks of a bullish move at the beginning of a new Primary cycle. The last thing the FED wants is an increasing price in Gold. The move up in Gold may be shorter than normal.

For subscribers, that closes out the last two alerts for the SP500 and Gold.



The main aspects that have a history in Primary cycle turns for the SP500 between now and the FED meeting announcement on Dec 16, 2015 are:

Dec 6               Mars waning square Pluto
Dec 10             Mars opposition Uranus
Dec 14             Sun waxing square Jupiter.

One of these dates +- 2 td's should mark a turn in the SP500. Dec 14th +- with the Sun waxing square Jupiter is high on my list for a turn. This is mainly due to the Sun / Jupiter square although it's also close to the FED announcement date but it would be difficult seeing the FED change there announcement (.25%) at this point.

"We are in the period where confusion and deceit should be prevalent. with Neptune turning direct in Pisces, the sign that it rules, and the long forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. Not a good environment for Mars in Libra. Watch for adroit politicians here and lies.

Mentioning deceit and illusion / delusion we should bring up the Sykes-Picot Agreement of May 16, 1916. Use Google or Bing to get the historic details of this agreement. On reading some of the posts on the Net on this subject emphasizes the benefit of having historical hard copy books available. History is easily changed on the Internet.

Remember the Saturn / Neptune square "is often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates and money valuation problems in general". Gold going up is a money valuation issue. So is a change in interest rates.

Following is an excerpt from the monthly subscribers letter. It has been there for many months.

Also from last week"
"In short, religious strife will continue and probably spread from the mid-East. There may be a rise in religious terrorists or kidnappings and this could be as early as the fall of 2015. These problems could first arise in Europe (Spain?) but the US is vulnerable as well. These actions and general environment could effect the US and world economies by mid 2016. South America should be included as well."

Attacks from religious terrorists and general strife and discord should continue into December 2015 and again in mid-April 2016 when Mars turns stationary in religious Sagittarius and makes difficult aspects, conjunct Saturn and square Neptune. Strife , discord, explosions and terrorists may be on the menu the week of Dec 7th with Mars translating the Uranus  / Pluto square. This is not a direct forecast, but points to a period of time where these events are more probable to occur.

The week of Dec 21 could be another hot spot with hard transits to the ISIS formation chart. This will also be a test if the date and time for the ISIS formation chart are correct.

Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules the law, religion, philosophy and science. With the square to Neptune is a good signal for a religious message that gets perverted.

With Mars, Uranus and Pluto in aspect an explosive event may be imminent. I would also expect the markets to be volatile over the next few weeks as well.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan '16 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb.

The following weekly chart shows the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages and the fact price broke through both averages but have moved above the averages this past week. Also the 21 and 34 week moving averages are still pointing down or flat.  This is looking like a 4-Year low.

The question is, do we have a significant low in front of us. At this point I think yes and it could be the December '15 - January '16 time frame.



Neptune is prominent particularly in the second half of November 2015. We've mentioned watching Jupiter and Neptune aspects and events for swings in crude. High and low. We've also noted Neptune often brings illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehood. Maybe that's why we had the climate change conference.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms. Lack of water, or a problem with water, is going to be a major problem in the not too distant future.

From now through to February 2016 Uranus and Pluto move closer together to the square which we wrote much about in 2014 and early in 2015. For new subscribers or anyone, use the search facility on the blog. Search for "Uranus square Pluto". We should mention Mercury will go retrograde in January 2016 and add energy to the Uranus / Pluto square near the end of January.

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. Saturn changed signs into Sagittarius on Sept 17th and will be there until Dec 20, 2017.

One of our subscribers forwarded a report from another Astrologer, which amongst other things made the case for sharp market moves when the Moon is in Virgo (a mutable sign) and Saturn is in a mutable sign.

On the following chart 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 the August low be it?  The Saturn square Neptune aspect (light green squares) on the following chart are often found near changes in inflation, interest rates or money valuation problems in general


The Saturn waning square to Neptune and Jupiter waning square Saturn are becoming the most prominent aspects going forward. They are both 3 passes as seen on the chart. The last Saturn/Neptune exact square is in August 2016 but it's effects will be passed that date as well. It is confusing and depressing with no one in apparent control.

The 1st half of 2016 forecast dates will soon be available. Following is  chart of the SP500 with the 2nd half of 2015 noted as arrows. The arrows just point to the date. Whether it points up or down is irrelevant. The 2nd half 2015 forecast dates were completed in May 2015. Not bad.




Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th.

We are entering either the 19/20th week of the nominal 18 week cycle or it is quite possible Gold put in a Primary cycle trough on Dec 3rd in which case we would be heading up in the first week of a new Primary cycle. This is too early to confirm but we were late in the existing Primary cycle and just made a strong, but two day move. 

I had brought up the possibility of a spike low in the subscribers letter, during the week, before we start a new Primary. We got the spike low on Dec 2nd, which I bought.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through four Venus price lines. Gold went below the Jupiter price line (blue) and has regained the Venus price line. I'd like to see Gold follow this Venus price line up or jump to the next higher Venus price line currently near 1084.

As mentioned the FED does not want to see Gold prices rising.

I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year possibly at the end of the next primary cycle which may also be a 17 month cycle low. The move should be up. Subscribers have the potential dates.



Crude
This coming week of Dec 7th we should be entering the 15th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune (Nov 26th) and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn on Nov 29th.

I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. If they ever left. As mentioned Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules and is most powerful here.

Looking out at the major transits in 2016 I'll be looking for a bottom in crude in 2016. I've mentioned to look at dates near aspects to Jupiter and Neptune, the two planets that rule crude. Subscribers have a list of those dates to the end of the year.

It is difficult to forecast Crude here with all the geopolitical events, OPEC and our climate change friends. I'll be changing focus to NatGas in the next few weeks. NatGas is very local so we'll look at NatGas prices in North America.

Climate change has become a political cause celeb, where we hear politicians with great authority claim this is what is happening. We don't hear from the many climatologists, scientists, PHD's etc who do not agree. Their voices are not heard. It's never a good sign when only one side of an argument is heard.
