The Spring Equinox is coming up fast, giving us an opportunity for an important trading turn.
It’s big enough to impact all the markets.
The equinox marks the passage of the Sun into Aries.
It’s the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere, and the start of Autumn south of the equator.
It was a favorite timing indicator for trading turn calculation by W. D. Gann, the pioneering astro-trader.
Gann also marked the date prominently on his trading squares and wheels as he pondered the market action with his unique price and time tools.
Setting Up A Trading Turn
This year’s Spring Equinox is on March 20 – that’s less than a week away.
It’s going to be especially powerful. That’s why we’re looking for to trigger a significant trading turn.
Why is this one more powerful than usual?
It’s because the astrological events surrounding the equinox create a piling-on effect.
This year the Spring Equinox comes on the same day as a Full Moon.
In fact, those two events are less than four hours apart.
And on top of that, we’ll be getting lots of extra action in planetary declination on the same day.
The Sun will be parallel the current two-eclipse midpoint.
The Sun will be parallel the January eclipse antiscion.
The Sun will be parallel the eclipse point from the solar eclipse last August.
And the Sun will also be parallel the eclipse antiscion from that same August solar eclipse.
Since some of that planetary action will be precise in the hours following the closing bell on March 20, we may actually see the trading turn hitting on March 21 instead.
But whether a trading turn comes on March 20 or on March 21, the current uptrend suggests a shift to the downside.
That gives a reason to believe that a trading turn next week will mark a short-term trading top.
