Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.
The next 1/2 year Forecast Dates are available for purchase. Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up. I've changed the format a little by including more Video. This weeks post will be a little shorter as I'm writing the November subscribers report.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise June 27 was the last Primary cycle trough1 that puts us entering the 19th week. I was looking for a possible 50 week low to coincide with that June 27th Primary trough. The sharp move up after the June 27th Primary low seems to confirm this was the 50 week trough as well.

The next estimated Primary cycle ( aka nominal 18 week cycle)  low was estimated to be  October 24 +- 3 weeks with a range of October 3rd to November 14th. As we get closer I use the upcoming Astros to try and get a more exact reading on when the Primary cycle trough will occur. As I mentioned some weeks ago on a previous post the cycles, as they get closer to the US Election, cycles that are due may expand into the Election date. The Election date is November 8th. We will need a range around that date and look for Astrological transits or events that have a history of moves near Primary cycle troughs. These will be included in the November Subscribers report. On October 22 the Sun enters Scorpio and will be there until November 21. The market, with the Sun in Scorpio, is often volatile with a history of big moves in both directions during this period. For US stock indices the period when the Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Aquarius can coincide with a change in trend. This year that would be November 6th, 7th, 8th.

I've mentioned Election day, November 8th +- as a possible low but this could mark a high and the start of a more severe slide. We could also see a bounce into the election period then down. It will be very important in assessing the trend as we approach the November 8th period. I'm watching price action as we get closer. Currently I'm looking for a low near November 8th but it could be choppy on the way.

For those who have been reading this blog for awhile I've been looking for some large deceit or lies being exposed. This maybe what is coming out of Wiki leaks and Assange but it hasn't made it to the Main Stream Media. There have been many little lies exposed. The internet outage on October 21 is certainly an indication of how secure the internet is and how vulnerable to attack. As someone said "Build a FireWall before a wall."

The month of November 2016 will be influenced by Neptune. There are 5 transits to Neptune and it will be turning Direct. This should color the period with Neptune issues.

Neptune stands for Socialism, left-wing political idea. It is linked with mobs, secret police, sedation, fraud, swindling, illicit undertakings, bogus companies, loss, lies and deceit. The exact dates of transits are reserved for subscribers.

In addition there is a 12 year cycle hitting near the end of the month. This synodic cycle relates to the growth of international terrorism and political power. It also has evidence of an impact on the economy. In brief, the attainment of power of all kinds.

One area of note. Saturn will be at 14 degrees, 41 minutes in Sagittarius on November 3rd. This is conjunct the Fixed Star Sarin. Fixed Stars are treated as if they stand still. They do move but very slowly. Saturn moves slowly as well. It takes approx. 29 years for one trip around the Sun. The last time Saturn was in this position was
September 5, 1987. A few days before the market crash of '87. This is far from definite but look for a possible severe move down around November 3rd - 8th or shortly thereafter. We'll know better as we get closer in time.

In mundane astrology the star names can also be significant. On March 20, 1995 there was a sarin attack on the Tokyo subway, killing at least a dozen people, severely injuring fifty and causing temporary vision problems for nearly a thousand others. Transiting Jupiter was conjunct this fixed star Sarin. Note I am not forecasting the same event.

Mars entered Capricorn on Sept 27th where it is exalted. One more piece of a move from mutable signs to Cardinal signs. Here Mars, male energy, is the initiator of action in the worldly environment and is kept in check by Saturn the ruler of Capricorn. Mars leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on November 9th, the day after the US Election. Planets changing signs often occur near the markets changing trend.

We saw a number of earthquakes over 6.0 in October. With a number of  Neptune transits in November we may be seeing more.

Following is a daily chart of the SP500. The grey line is an adjusted Bradley indicator. It's purpose is to find a change in trend. This is not straight forward to read and the details with video are in section 9 of the subscribers report.

Note the next V shaped bottom of that indicator is right on October 24th, 2016. It has no polarity by itself. This suggests there will be a move but not the direction of the move.

With the latest news out of the US and the election with the FBI reviewing additional eMails it seems to fit with a period of time when Neptune is active. Lies, deceit and confusion. For longer term readers, this may be the surprise I was looking for.

Following is our normal daily chart for the SP500. Price is now below both the 15 and 45 day sma's and the 15 day is below the 45 day. A usual setup leading into a Primary cycle low.



In addition there is a Mars waning square to Uranus and Venus conjunct Saturn on Saturday October 29th.  Mars waning square to Uranus is a powerful aspect but needs a wide orb +- 1.5 weeks. Venus conjunct Saturn has a strong correlation to Primary cycle turns. I think these will wait closer to the November 8th date.

Following is a chart of the planetary average longitude. The horizontal blue lines are based on the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which are converted to price. The levels this calculates typically are excellent points to place sell or buy stops. I often use them with Fibonacci retracement levels as well. Price started down Oct. 24th and appeared to be speeding up with the US election news on  Oct. 24th. Note my comments on Saturn position further up n this post.



Two charts we have not shown for awhile are the weekly charts of the DJIA with the 40 week and 18 cycles. The cycles are the vertical blue lines. Both are due to turn down.

40 week


18week


Harmonics
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 Nov 4th then Nov. 23rd.  They are often at short changes in trend.



Rumors from the FED that Yellen wants a "high-pressure economy" meaning increased inflation with no rate cuts. There were also rumors of the FED buying stock directly. They should review Japan again.

And for the election crowd.

Gold
I was looking at May 31 as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

Gold appears to be trying to move up. We have hit a couple of the dates identified in the subscribers report with more to come. A review of the daily chart shows the 15 and 45 day sma are pointed down with the 15 day flat and price below both. The Gold Primary cycle is due for a trough. It is currently entering the 21st week. Beyond the nominal 18 week cycle there is a 13 1/2 month cycle that is due for a trough then up.

It is possible October 7th was the Primary low but unconfirmed. Price hasn't made a big move up. I'm looking for a trough in Gold between November 2 -9 or near November 24, 25 both +- 3 td's. When the trough is in we may be looking at a significant rise in precious metals.



The following weekly chart for Gold has the 13.5 month cycle shown as the blue vertical lines. It has been close to both highs and lows and we are close now.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term. I'm looking for a more substantial move up later in November.



Crude
Feb 11 was the start of the previous Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough hit again on August 3rd where we have another Primary Cycle trough (PB).

We have had a Major cycle (aka 6 week cycle) crest (MT) and a Major cycle trough (MB) and are going up into the second Major cycle of the Primary cycle.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. The price of crude is subject to the vagaries of the OPEC group and the actions of it's individual members. We had been looking for a retest of the August lows but now may have put in the crest of this Primary cycle on October 19th. Many markets will be influenced by the US leading into the November 8th election. With the multiple Neptune aspects crude could be volatile in November.

Crude may be headed down here or it could put in one more Major cycle (6 week) high and then down.

Following is a daily chart of crude shows the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent moves down in crude have been stopped at the up sloping green line, the Sun price line. Pluto, the black line often acts as support or resistance.

Following is a chart of the planetary average longitude. The horizontal blue lines are based on the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which are converted to price. The levels this calculates typically are excellent points to place sell or buy stops. I often use them with Fibonacci retracement levels as well. Price went up Oct 14 and just touched the 2151 line (blue) and fell back intra-day to close at the low of the day. The index has gone sideways since.



Other transits over the next couple of weeks point to a volatile period in the markets.

Another chart is the daily SP500 with the Sun and Pluto price lines. Green is the Sun and black is Pluto. Notice, the SP500 was stopped at the Pluto price line (black line) on October 13th, edged up over the Sun price line and on Friday touched the Pluto price line and moved up close to the Sun price line. I'd like to see price move through the Pluto price line (currently at 2129) with good volume.



Harmonics
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 Nov 4th then Nov. 23rd.  They are often at short changes in trend as seen on the August 1 date which was followed by two strong moves down.

Gold
I was looking at May 31 as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

Gold appears headed down into it's Primary trough. We have hit a couple of the dates identified in the subscribers report with more to come. A review of the daily chart shows the 15 and 45 day sma are pointed down with the 15 below the 45 and price below both. The Gold Primary cycle is due for a trough. It is currently entering the 20th week.

It is possible October 7th was the Primary low but unconfirmed. Price hasn't made a big move up. I think we will go down next week. This could also wait for a trough until the US Election time period.

The US elections could start interfering with the normal length of cycles if it gets to the end of October without hitting it's trough. Note, Gold has been going sideways for the last 12 days.

When we get in situations like this, Gold due for a trough but weakening if the US$ continues up I don't buy Gold or gold stocks, I put in resting buy orders at critical levels. They are triggered when price reaches that level. There are other strategies that could be employed using options.



The following weekly chart for Gold has the 13.5 month cycle shown as the blue vertical lines. It has been close to both highs and lows and we are close now.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term. I'm looking for a more substantial move up later in November. We should go down first.



Crude
Feb 11 was the start of the previous Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough hit again on August 3rd where we have another Primary Cycle trough (PB).

We have had a Major cycle (aka 6 week cycle) crest (MT) and a Major cycle trough (MB) and are going up into the second Major cycle of the Primary cycle.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. The price of crude is subject to the vagaries of the OPEC group and the actions of it's individual members. We had been looking for a retest of the August lows but now may have put in the crest of this Primary cycle on October 19th. Many markets will be influenced by the US leading into the November 8th election. The month of October's Astrological aspects should see increasing geo-political stress.

This is an unusual situation when crude price is increasing while Gold is falling and the US$ makes gains. This will not go on for a long time.

The following weekly chart of crude has a 16 week (red) and 24 week (blue) cycles. Where they land together red + blue = green. They hit on October 10th and that was a big range day for crude.

The green cycle has been at both highs and lows in crude and sometimes very sharp moves. I'm looking for crude to fall back from here.

This is a weekly chart. The red square on the chart is the Jupiter quincunx (150 degrees)  Neptune aspect


Following is a daily chart of crude with the 24 week (black) and the 12 week (red) cycles. Again pointing to a move down.

I've mentioned Election day, October 8th as a possible low but now wondering if this marks the start of a more severe slide.

With the USA elections, this Primary cycle may extend to be close to the election date, November 8th. For those who have been reading this blog for awhile I've been looking for some large deceit or lies being exposed. This maybe what is coming out of Wiki leaks and Assange but it hasn't made it to the Main Stream Media

Here Mars, male energy, is the initiator of action in the worldly environment and is kept in check by Saturn the ruler of Capricorn. Mars leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on November 9th, the day after the US Election.

Before the US Election there are a number of other Astrological transits and events like a perigee Full Moon, aka Supermoon this week and a very strong Astrological aspect this week.

There have been a number of Heliocentric Astrological last week and now we have the Sun opposing Uranus. This may cause increased geophysical disturbances, including earthquakes and volcano's.

Following is a daily chart of the SP500. The blue line is the heliocentric Bradley indicator. It's purpose is to find a change in trend. This is not straight forward to read and the details with video are in section 9 of the subscribers report.

Note the next V shaped bottom of that indicator is right on October 24th, 2016. It has no polarity by itself. This suggests there will be a move but not the direction of the move.

Other transits over the next couple of weeks point to a volatile period in the markets.

Another chart is the daily SP500 with the Sun and Pluto price lines. Green is the Sun and black is Pluto. Notice, the SP500 was stopped at the Sun price line (green line) during the day and fell back close to the Sun price line at the close. The previous day price peaked below the Pluto line (black) but closed over the Pluto line. Watch this early next week to see if either the Sun or Pluto will provide support or resistance.


Harmonics
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 Oct. 21st then November 4th. They are often at short changes in trend as seen on the August 1 date which was followed by two strong moves down.

Financial Astrology - October 10, 2016

 - Our second half 2016 forecast dates are available
                      - 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

Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.
The next 1/2 year Forecast Dates are available for purchase. Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up. I've changed the format a little by including more Video.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise June 27 was the last Primary cycle trough1 that puts us entering the 15th week. I was looking for a possible 50 week low to coincide with that June 27th Primary trough. The sharp move up after the June 27th Primary low seems to confirm this was the 50 week trough as well.

The next estimated Primary cycle ( aka nominal 18 week cycle)  low is estimated to be  October 24 +- 3 weeks with a range of October 3rd to November 14th. As we get closer I use the upcoming Astros to try and get a more exact reading on when the Primary cycle trough will occur. There are 2 areas where the Astrological aspects have a history of Primary cycle turns, in this case a trough. These are included in the October Subscribers report.

With the USA elections, this Primary cycle may extend to be close to the election date, November 8th, disregarding what the FED says.

One area of note. Saturn will be at 14 degrees, 41 minutes in Sagittarius on November 3rd. This is conjunct the Fixed Star Sarin. Fixed Stars are treated as if they stand still. They do move but very slowly. Saturn moves slowly as well. It takes approx. 29 years for one trip around the Sun. The last time Saturn was in this position was September 5, 1987. A few days before the market crash of '87.

Looking back another 29 years it was Nov 20, 1957 and there was a small dip in the markets. The same thing happened on October 8, 1928. So, no guarantee but the days around Nov. 3rd through the election period are worth watching. When looking at these old dates we must understand that the planet in question has moved but so have all other planets and points.

One of the items in the September Subscribers Report was that we were about to enter a period of change. This will be slow at first and change into October and beyond. Friday, September 9th was the start with Jupiter entering Libra. Jupiter is about the judicial and religious worlds. It is about the justice system, prominent judges and barristers and the nation's wealth and bankers. The sign of Libra is about justice , it's sign looks like the scales of justice. Libra will bring more use of intuition and intelligence and also justice. Problems come in when firm decisions must be made. Libra is indecisive. We should also watch for the negative effects of Jupiter which are over-doing things, a laissez-faire attitude, failure to honour commitments particularly at the legal and financial level.

I think we'll be coming back to the "nation's wealth" issue.

Mars enters Capricorn on Sept 27th where it is exalted. One more piece of a move from mutable signs to Cardinal signs. Here Mars, male energy, is the initiator of action in the worldly environment and is kept in check by Saturn the ruler of Capricorn.

I'm still looking for some secret to be exposed or deceit. Maybe it's Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. Maybe something else.

There are a number of other Astrological transits and events like a perigee Full Moon, aka Supermoon this month.

Looking at heliocentric planets (Sun centered) the Earth is in hard aspect to Pluto, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. This is unusual over one week and could be pointing to a period of increased geophysical disturbances, including earthquakes and volcano's.

Saturn is often associated with violent weather and it is transiting over the Ascendant of the USA formation chart. I should have mentioned this last week.

Following is the daily chart of the SP500. I've left off any video's as I have a strong Canadian cold . and I am quite hoarse.

The blue line is the heliocentric Bradley indicator. This is not straight forward to read and the details with video are in section 9 of the subscribers report. I think we are going down next week.

Note the next V shaped bottom of that indicator is right on October 24th, 2016. It has no polarity by itself. This suggests there will be a move but not the direction of the move.



Following is a chart of the planetary average longitude. The horizontal blue lines are based on the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which are converted to price. The levels this calculates typically are excellent points to place sell or buy stops. I often use them with Fibonacci retracement levels as well. Price has been bouncing around between 2151 and 2166.



To depart from our normal analysis I am going to look at a chart is the USA. This is for Astrologers in the group but should be of interest to all readers.

I'm using a chart for the USA called Sagittarius Rising aka the Sibly chart. If you know the symbols Sagittarius is the red arrow on the left side of the chart. Saturn, the planet right above is about to cross over the Ascendant.

This chart has an inside wheel and an outside wheel. The inside wheel shows where the planets were when the USA came into being in 1776. The outer wheel is where the planets are now. Note the date of Oct 16, 2016.



This weekend Saturn will square the True North Node. This is still in orb on Oct 16. Saturn, restriction and discipline is in the sign of the law, religion and banks. Watch for these themes. This could represent a change in direction for the country as a whole or one of it's leaders. This could also stand for a change in international commerce, messaging (email?), the law and lawyers. Possible a change in opinion of a large group of people.

I'm going to add another wheel. This is the Solar Directed Arc and is put in the middle wheel and the transits in the outer wheel.



Note we still have the Saturn square True North Node but we now have the planet Saturn in Sagittarius opposing the position of Saturn in the Solar Directed Arc wheel. Here Saturn is in Gemini. Both are changeable Mutable signs, often found near sharp moves in the market.

Saturn in the Solar directed chart is in the 7th house. This has to do with open enemies, foreign nations and their attitude toward war and international disputes.

Watch the dates from October 8 through October 17th very closely. I've already mentioned we may see a pickup in geophysical activity and there is also a Perigee Full Moon on October 16th which emphasizes that along with violent weather.

This may be important for the USA or could affect a person or persons in power. Other transits over the next couple of weeks point to a volatile period in the markets.

This is also very close to the Saturn on the Fixed Star Sarin above.

In mundane astrology the star names can also be significant. On March 20, 1995 there was a sarin attack on the Tokyo subway, killing at least a dozen people, severely injuring fifty and causing temporary vision problems for nearly a thousand others. Transiting Jupiter was conjunct this fixed star Sarin. Note I am not forecasting the same event.

Gold
I was looking at May 31 as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

Gold appears headed down into it's Primary trough. We have hit a couple of the dates identified in the subscribers report with more to come. A review of the daily chart shows the 15 and 45 day sma are pointed down with the 15 below the 45 and price below both. With the weakness elsewhere the US$ has increased but is over extended and should pullback soon.. Nevertheless the Gold Primary cycle is due for a trough.

The US elections could start interfering with the normal length of cycles if they get close to the end of October without hitting it's trough.

When we get in situations like this, Gold due for a trough but weakening if the US$ continues up I don't buy Gold or gold stocks, I put in resting buy orders at critical levels. They are triggered when price reaches that level. There are other strategies that could be employed using options.




The following daily chart for Gold has the 30 td (trading days) shown as the red vertical lines. It has been close to both highs and lows. This looks close to a reversal up.



The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.



Crude
Feb 11 was the start of the previous Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough hit again on August 3rd where we have another Primary Cycle trough (PB).

We have had a Major cycle (aka 6 week cycle) crest (MT) and a Major cycle trough (MB) and are going up into the second Major cycle of the Primary cycle.



I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. The price of crude is subject to the vagaries of the OPEC group and the actions of it's individual members. We had been looking for a retest of the August lows but now headed up. Many markets will be influenced by the US leading into the November 8th election. The month of October's Astrological aspects should see increasing geo-political stress.

This is an unusual situation when crude price is increasing while Gold is falling and the US$ makes gains. This will not go on for a long time.

The following weekly chart of crude has a 16 week (red) and 24 week (blue) cycles. Where they land together red + blue = green.

The green cycle has been at both highs and lows in crude and sometimes very sharp moves. Watch this the week of October 10th particularly Oct 10 and Oct 17th.

I'm looking for Gold to go up and for crude to fall back on a sharp move.
