Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.
This will be a short post for the holiday week.
The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse. The standard for the Primary cycle is 18 weeks. We are now starting the 18th week of the SP500 Primary cycle which has a range from 15 to 23 weeks. This has been an unusual time with the general market indices seemingly unstoppable.
I mentioned before the Jupiter trine Neptune and Saturn trine Uranus needed some Earth signs which is more disciplined, status quo and not apt to see rampant changes or inflation.
Before Dec 19 we had 6 planets in Fire signs and 1 in Earth signs. This will start to change Dec 19 with Saturn entering Capricorn. By Jan 11 there will be 5 planets in Earth signs. Does this mean more stability? Not if you look at January and February. In particular there are 2 Super Moons in January and then a powerful Solar Eclipse on Feb 15. More on this powerful earthquake and earthquake’s in general in late January’s post.
Whether it is central bank money, corporate buy-backs or money from some other source we need to know the time periods where a correction is more probable. We look at Cycles and Astro events that have a history of being 65% - 72 % correct. We will continue with this approach.
At the very least we should see a pull back in the markets. Planets in Earth signs should generate more caution and generally more stability in the markets. I’m looking for a slow trend down into early to mid Jan 2018.
Note the last Primary cycle low on August 21 was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped just below the 45 day sma.
The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicates a possible change in trend near Jan 8. The current daily closing high was December 18th at 2,694.97
Beyond currency and money in general 2018 may be known as the Year of the Earthquake. I would include Volcanos as well. Look for the start in the first 2 months of the year.
We should stay aware the trends in the major US indices remain up and that is the way they should be played.
I’m also looking for some type of spreading infection / disease in 2018. I’ll keep an eye on these as they may incubate in an area with no news coverage.
Last week we mentioned on Dec 9 Mars enters Scorpio, the sign that it rules along with Pluto. This has a strong relationship to changes in trend in Gold and it appears an effect on the broader market indices as well. Check the Gold chart. This is looking like the Primary cycle bottom in Gold on December 12th but watch closely for a pull back before a bigger move.
Watch for news from or about France including countries with an influence from France like North Africa.
There is a longer term Market cycle coming due. That is the 9 / 18 month cycle as seen on the following weekly chart. I’m looking for the markets to start a move down between Dec. 18th
and January 10, 2018. January 8, 2018 may be the bottom.
The above combination could be defining problems / restrictions for the general population, particularly the mature population and with the Sun could affect the President or other leaders. This combination could affect a number of years in the future as Saturn is in a sign for approx.. 2 ½ years. Other conditions this may highlight are State funerals, public sorrow and disappointment in general. State assets could be affected as well as industries connected to metals and mining.
The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn has been in Capricorn (red x’s). Notice they have all had significant drops. This chart also has the 15 year cycle which will be coming due in 2018.
Gold is in it’s 2nd week with a Primary low on December 12th. Expect a pullback 2 to 3 weeks along. Also expect Gold to continue up into late January / February 2018.
Dec 12 was close to the Mars entering Scorpio mentioned last week.
The 15 day sma is below the 45 day sma and both are curling down. Price is below both. This is the picture we want to seat a Primary cycle low.
Note on the Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold stopped at the 38.2% retracement.
This will be interesting to see if a Gold rise is affected by BitCoin and other crypto currencies.
The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.
The longer term.7.4 Year cycle is shown in the following weekly chart. Note we are still early in the latest 7.4 year cycle.
The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The next being December 22nd
The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. It has hit one of the main Mars Price lines (darker red) and got support here. Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 harmonic. If you count each line from one darker red line to the next you will find there are 15 of them. 15 * 24 degrees = 360 degrees.Note price went down to Dec 12 where it bounced of a Mars Price Line.
The following daily chart of Gold shows the days Mars is entering a new sign (red squares). Look at this using +- 3 td’s (trading days). The date is December 8th. These can be at highs or lows. This next one will be as Mars enters Scorpio the sign that it rules. Note on the chart, Mars changing signs, to any sign often has a change in trend in Gold price. The blue circles highlight when Mars enters Scorpio.
We were looking at October 6th as being the trough of the last Primary cycle. The move out of that date was the start of a Primary cycle. We are entering either the 11th week of the Primary that started on October 6th
The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto (blue). Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See it again on Sept 14.
The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.
There have been a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st. Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude and NatGas. December 2nd was the Jupiter waning trine Neptune. Watch for a change in trend in crude.
Watch the red Fibonacci retracement lines and the blue planetary averages.
Also watch the 15 and 45 day sma. The 15 day is curling over while the 45 day sma is headed up. And is below price.
