Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded
The next 1/2 year Forecast Dates (July - December 2016) are available for purchase. Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up.

For the SP500, cycle-wise June 27 appears to be the Primary cycle trough.  1 that puts us entering the 7th week. February 11 was the trough of the previous Primary cycle. Early in a cycle is often the most bullish part. I was looking for a possible 50 week low to coincide with the Primary trough and the move off the June 27th Primary low seems to confirm this was the 50 week trough as well.

June 27th was identified and an Alert sent out to subscribers on June 23rd. This was Sidereal Uranus crossing zero degrees of Aries. See

With June 27th being the low the next Primary cycle should be October 24th with a range from October 3rd to November 14.

Amongst other things last week we had Mars leaving Scorpio and into Sagittarius. The thought is precious metals typically do not do as well when Mars is in Sagittarius. They moved down on Friday with the large Employment Report. Of course this was filled with seasonality adjustments and was preceded by the GDP report which was quite dismal. From this point on take all government report with a grain of salt as they are being influenced by the coming election.

As we have said in previous posts:
"We may see further surprise events in either the markets, geophysical (earthquakes, volcanoes) violent weather, terrorist event or other unusual happenings.

Things will be heating up in August and September. Dates in which we are looking for more world events are in the subscribers August Monthly Report.

We are about to enter the 7th week of the Primary cycle which means we may see a 6 week cycle pull back. There was a 2 day pullback on August 1st and 2nd but this would be very shallow for a 6 week trough.

Some points on this chart of the Sp500.
- The two blue lines show a broadening top. Markets either bounce off the top line and move down or break through the rising line and then reverse down or follow the top line up.

- The bolder red line is the Geocentric Bradley indicator. Price started to rise from August 2nd. Mars entered Sagittarius on August 2nd. If this continues up, even if they are small moves then there may be a turn around August 10th. +- 2 td's. Subscribers see section 9 for definitions.

- At the bottom of the daily chart Momentum is curling up and Stochastic's have already turned up in the over sold area on the daily chart. The weekly chart shows the SP500 very overbought.

- We will be entering the 7th week of the Primary cycle. The beginning of a Primary cycle (nominal 18 week) is most often a 6 week cycle. This can have a range of 5 - 7 weeks. The second most common cycle to start a new Primary cycle is the 1/2 Primary or 9 weeks. This would have a range of 7.5 to 10.5 weeks. If this is a 1/2 Primary cycle forming the markets may have a ways to go. I'm looking for some type of more serious world event to stop this FED induced rise.  Some of the market cycles we use are from the work of Walter Bressert and Ray Merriman.

On August 13 Venus squares Saturn as it's start of a translation of the Saturn / Neptune square. This is also on the 45 cd (calendar day) cycle (green vertical line) on the above chart. This could effect August 12, 15th. Venus, amongst other things, is money.

From last weeks blog.
Expect more sudden surprise events near the end of July, Mid to the end of August and the end of September and October.

If there was only one word to describe the next month and a half it would be "disruptive".
There are two main aspects coming up, Mars conjunct Saturn and Saturn square Neptune. There are also a number of other transits involving other planets translating the above 2 aspects.

We are also entering the eclipse period. Coming up we have 2 lunar eclipses and 1 Solar eclipse. This should be a very dangerous period. The events could indirectly affect the financial markets. Events could include significant earthquakes, volcanic activity, war, terrorist events. Subscribers have more exact dates over the next month and a half.

This weekend Mercury will translate the forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. We will see if the Saturn / Neptune square is close enough to have an effect. This is before Saturn turns direct so the effect may not be as strong. This may bring these somewhat depressing energies out. Monday morning will open with the effect of the Mercury translation, if any, and the fact that Mars will move out of bounds on Monday, August 8th. This makes Mars more erratic and unpredictable than usual. Remember Mars just entered Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign normally aggressive and impulsive but not dominating. This general reaction may be affected by the fact Mars is going "Out of Bounds". There is a potential war, violence or terrorist event involving Mars later in the month.

Search the blog for definitions you don't understand. If a subscriber search section 9 of the monthly report. There are many other important events occurring in August. Subscribers have the dates. This may be a very difficult period.

Another chart is the daily SP500 with the Sun and Pluto price lines. Green is the Sun and black is Pluto. Notice, the SP500 has been stopped at the Pluto price line (black line). Look back and note this has happened before. Also note price often follows the Sun price line up.  The SP500 dipped on August 2nd just below the Sun price line then moved up and broke through the Pluto price line with the favorable Employment Report in the US. If considering a trade this would be a short term as I'm expecting trouble which may start as early as next week.

With the dovish monetary policy one would expect the US$ to be moving down. This hasn't been the case lately. See the following weekly chart of the US$ index. The purple squares are the Uranus Retrograde dates. Note the US$ often turns close to the Uranus Retrograde dates, both up and down. A turn here would be down in the US$.

Also note the red vertical lines on the right side of the chart. This is the 26 week cycle. This has also been close to short term changes in trend. This 26th week cycle occurs the same week as the Uranus retrograde. Watch for the US$ to move down based on Uranus retrograde and the 26 week cycle.

The US$ got a boost from the fictitious latest Employment Report.

So this week watch August 11th simply because there are often events on the 11th of a month. August 12 has Saturn conjunct the Moon and both square the position of the September 1 Solar Eclipse. It is quite powerful. This next month has a number of strong, long-term transits mixed with 3 eclipses.

I will be sending out a separate report on the eclipses to subscriber next weekend. Elipses can effect a broad period of time.

When Saturn turns direct in August it will be headed for the last exact waning square between Saturn and Neptune. This aspect has created much of the tension, lies and deceit we have seen for the last number of months. The date of the last exact square is September 10 but these longer term transits will color history for many months afterwards and need a broad orb. This time period may expose some long term deceit and there may be an illness or worse for a current world leader.

This transit will be coloring the period of time (all year). Lies and deceit continue. Except me of course.

Saturn square Neptune
-in the middle of a 3 pass, 2 exact hits to come this year
Saturn is about social order, structure and regulations. Neptune can be politically unrealistic and a desire to avoid confrontation. It can be devious, underhanded and use subversive tactics.
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 epidemics, pandemics 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. One wonders in regards to epidemics and sickness, would this be natural illnesses or man-made. If you feel depressed or not at ease this aspect may be the cause. One of these planets may be hitting a planet in your personal horoscope.

Neptune can be the height of spirituality or illusion, delusion and deceit. Saturn is reality, Karmic debt, contraction, depression, sorrow and disappointment. When these planets meet look for political changes and reforms. Self sacrifice may come to the fore. This aspect seems to have a history with the British Royal Family.

One of the cycles associated with eclipses is the Metonic cycle. It is 19 years in length.
If we count back 19 years we have the time period for Princess Diana tragic death. Watch the news and see if something ties into the Royal Family. Perhaps uncovering some issue around the Family or Princess Diana's death.

Another cycle for eclipses is the Saros cycle. This is an 18 year, 11 day, 8 hour cycle. It marks the return of the Sun, Earth and Moon to approx. the same location. It takes 3 successive eclipses to return to the same area on Earth. Eclipses in a Saros cycle takes approx. 18 years so 18 * 3 = 54 years.

If we look at the Sept 1 Solar eclipse it is approx. 54 years from the Cuban Missile Crisis. There are nuclear issues with the U.S./ NATO locating nuclear tactical weapons in Europe on the Russian border. Before this is taken out of context, I am not forecasting nuclear war. This may be a time where nuclear issues come to the fore however.

On the following weekly chart of the DJIA, the red squares are Jupiter square Saturn, now past, and the green squares are Saturn square Neptune. It's between these two events that I have been looking for the Primary cycle low. We got it. After Sept 10 +- we will drop this chart.

I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycle between the Sun and Saturn, which are the brown squares on the following daily chart. The next hits are August 17th and Sept 1. They are often at short changes in trend as seen on the August 1 date which was followed by two strong moves down.

I was looking at March 28th as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

We are now going with May 31 as the Primary cycle low. This puts us entering the 11th week this coming week. We may have put in a 1/2 Primary cycle or 9 week cycle on July 25th.

Gold has followed general Mars transits in Scorpio. Starting with Mars entering Scorpio in early January 2016 Gold went up. The move ended when Mars entered Sagittarius  on March 5th. Gold then went sideways until Mars turned retrograde on April 17th.

On May 27 Mars reentered Scorpio moving backwards.
Mars turned direct on June 29th and will leave Scorpio for Sagittarius once again on August 2nd where Gold has a history of moving down or flat. There are also a couple of aspects which could point to a turn. We expect Gold to be flat to down (sideways consolidation) once we get past August 2nd but this may take a few weeks. Gold appears to be starting a down move.

The red vertical lines are the 14 cd cycle (calendar date) which has been at tops and bottoms for short term trend changes. The next date is August 11th.

On the following daily Gold charts there are the Venus (green), Jupiter (blue). These are the longitude of the planet converted to price. Gold often makes a big move close to when the Venus and Jupiter price lines cross. They crossed on July 29th and Gold had a big day. Gold has now pulled back to the Jupiter price line (blue). Watch for it to break through this area Monday or Tuesday.

Feb 11 was the start of the Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough is still forming. It is too early to confirm it at this point but we could have just seen it on August 2nd. This would put the low in 1st or 25th week of an older Primary (nominal 18 week cycle).  Again, this could be the Primary cycle trough but too early to call at this point.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitude of the planets from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The longitude is converted to price and put on the chart. It has acted as good support / resistance in the past.

Mentioned many times Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of crude. Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules, making it stronger. Jupiter is currently in Virgo the sign of it's detriment.

We are in that area above the next Jupiter Price Line (blue) right now.

The red squares are the 24th harmonic between the Sun and Neptune. Amongst other things this harmonic is for a "short term change in trend". The next date is August 3rd then August 18th. August 3rd may be important for many markets. Watch closely this coming week.  This may be the turn. If not a turn at least a short term correction.
