Gann Date Expectations

We’re on the eve of a vital W. D. Gann date.

That means it’s time to assess the market outlook.

December 21 marks the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere.

As a “quartering day” in the year it’s a key Gann date.

Gann Date: The Winter Solstice
Venus provides some powerful triggering effects on the December 21 Solstice Gann Date.

This year’s event has special significance, however.

That’s thanks to Venus aligning in a square to Uranus and an opposition to Vulcanus at the
same time.

The Venus Gann Date Effects

Venus brings money, cultural affairs, alliances and women’s  issues into focus, with big implications for the markets and geopolitics:

Confused or deceptive communications [Mercury/Neptune]

Severe limits to growth and expansion [Jupiter/Admetos]

More conservative policies and ideals [Saturn/Poseidon]

Forceful actions & crack-downs by State authorities [Mars/Kronos]

Explosive disruptions and upheavals [Uranus/Vulcanus]

The solstice sets the stage for the coming months, so we can look for these themes to be emphasized as we move into 2020.

Larry Pesavento’s Perspective

The Gann Date also came up when I joined Larry Pesavento on his TFNN shows yesterday.

We discussed it as a potential market reversal point.

Stocks Approach Gann Date
Shown here as of Wednesday’s close the S&P 500 index has been tracking a Mars line as it moves toward the solstice Gann Date and a possible encounter with resistance. We expect the Pluto line to provide a moderating influence at about 3223.50.

We also looked at the current trading pattern for the S&P 500, with an eye toward Mars and Pluto.

Both planets are helping to structure the market action right now.

Farewell To A Friend

During our conversation yesterday Larry and I also shared stories about Jeanne Long.

Jeanne died Monday after some years of declining health.

She made major contributions to Gann studies.

And to financial astrology

And to astro-trading.

She was truly a beautiful soul.

I’ll miss her deeply.

Knowledge You Need For Astro-Trading Success

There’s a certain amount of knowledge you need to have if you’re going to be successful in the markets.

That’s especially true of astro-trading.

If you’re going to get involved in the markets, and actually make money, you need to know how the markets work.

That’s true no matter what kind of trading techniques you use.

In astro-trading, though, there’s also knowledge you need to have about astrology.

And that’s more than just sun-sign astrology.

Like whether you’re a Scorpio or a Capricorn or an Aquarius.

Real astrology goes a lot deeper than that.

The astrology knowledge you need for success in the markets is deeper, too.

But you have to start somewhere.

Getting The Knowledge You Need

Let’s be honest.

Astrology is a huge subject.

There’s really no end to all the stuff you can learn about it.

And getting the knowledge you need for success is a lot like eating an elephant.

You do it one bite at a time.

If you keep biting, and keep chewing, you’ll eventually digest it.

And that’s when you’ll really start to see the payoff!

But the fact is, it’s always been hard to get reliable information about astro-trading.

There are lots of conflicting ideas and opinions.

For many years, if you wanted to master astrological trading you really had to work at it.

It was the same whether you wanted to trade stocks, commodities, or futures.

You had to gather information from a lot of different sources.

You had to study hard.

And in many cases, you could waste a lot of time and energy. You could burn yourself out, running down rabbit trails that led to nowhere.

I Decided To Make A Change

When I was learning, I faced the same kind of challenges.

Mastering financial astrology took me years and years of hard work.

But when I got it figured out, I decided to direct my energies toward helping others learn what I had learned.

I wanted to make it easier for you to get the knowledge you need to succeed.

So 18 years ago I started putting together a Basic Stock Market Astrology Course.

It began as a live classroom experience.

The recordings from that class became a home-study program.

Hundreds of people around the world used it get an introduction to market astrology.

And during the years since it was first released, that course has gone through a lot of improvements.

The most recent version, which sold for $2,395, included 31 CDs, a bonus DVD, and a 250-workbook.

As production costs increased, that edition eventually became too expensive to distribute. It went out of print a few years ago.

A Big Announcement

But now, I’m pleased to announce, there’s a brand-new version of this powerful astro-trading training program available at last!

It’s Basic Stock Market Astrology 3.0.

It features a huge amount of information. After all, its goal is to go the extra mile in making sure you get the knowledge you need for astro-trading success.

For more details on the course, take a look at this video:


 

As you may have gathered, there’s a lot to this over-the-top Basic Stock Market Astrology 3.0 course.

knowledge you need in this course outline

Transneptunian Zodiac Connections

Transneptunian zodiac connections don’t get a lot of attention.

We use the transneptunian planets in our market forecasting work.

We turn to them as we uncover active planetary price lines in trading charts.

But transneptunian factors are rarely understood.

Even some highly-experienced professional astrologers don’t give them much recognition.

And almost nobody understands their connection to the signs of the zodiac.

What’s A Transnepstunian Planet, Anyway?

The transneptunian planets were postulated before they were discovered.

They were first theorized by the German astrologer Alfred Witte. It was just after World War I.

Witte was a brilliant astrologer and mathematician.

He intimately understood connections between planetary cycles and real-world events.

But Witte saw  something missing.

Some events happened without obvious astrological correlations.

That seemed especially true in war.

Hence Witte’s flash of inspiration.

Alfred Witte’s Big Idea

He concluded that there must be more planets orbiting the Sun.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune had companions.

They just hadn’t been discovered yet.

But these hypothetical planets were making their influence felt. They were triggering real events.

Their effects were mainly evident in combination with other planetary influences.

So Witte went to work. He calculated their apparent orbits. He added them to his horoscopes.

And they worked.

The transneptunian factors that Witte and his students theorized really helped explain events.

They helped in individual horoscopes. But they were really powerful in mundane charts. Those are horoscopes associated with nations and global events.

Transneptunians are potent factors in financial astrology.

And since Witte’s day – about 100 years later – we found Kuiper Belt objects.

They’re in the zone where Witte predicted we’d find the transneptunians.

The Transneptunian Zodiac Connection

But their connection to signs of the zodiac is obscure.

That’s why I was intrigued when one of my students asked me about that connection.

She’s an astro-trader, refining her approach to the markets.

Our regular telephone sessions review her progress.

And she asked the question.

“How do transneptunians relate to the signs of the zodiac?”

I decided to record my answer.

It took me 45 minutes. But it’s the most direct and concise discussion you’ll find anywhere.

Hear It For Yourself

Transneptunian Zodiac
Transneptunian Zodiac Connections

That’s why I decided to make that recording available.

It’s been edited slightly. The audio quality has been cleaned up a little.

But in the audio, you’ll get the facts. You’ll hear details and nuances about transneptunian connects that aren’t available elsewhere.

And best of all, it’s available now as an instant MP3 download.

Fearless Forecast 2017

A market forecast for 2017?

About a month ago I got just such a request from Timer Digest.

They wanted to know my forecast for the coming year, in terms of what I was anticipating for action in the stock market.

Using The Dow As A Measurement

They wanted things spelled out with specific numbers for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. While I don’t necessarily agree that it’s the best market measurement to use, I went along with the plan.

Here’s what I told Timer Digest:

The General Trend Forecast

We’re anticipating a bullish year in 2017.

We expect to see congested trading from the first of the year through mid-February, followed by an aggressive rally into mid-May.

A well-defined trading range should dominate the summer months, with repeated tests of a stubborn resistance zone.

By late August a fairly sharp sell-off should come into play, lasting until late October.

We anticipate steady bullishness at the end of the year to set new record highs by the close of 2017.

Specific Targets In The Dow

We have a DJIA target of 20605 at the end of the first quarter, 2017.

By mid-year we expect to see the DJIA trading at 22788.

Our target closing price for the DJIA at the end of 2017 is 23823.

A Shameless Plug For Financial Astrology

We base our 2017 forecast on cycles studies and our assessment of the planetary dynamics throughout the year, especially the lunar nodal cycle and the solar eclipses in February and August.

We expect the August solar eclipse to have a particularly strong impact on raw materials and infrastructure concerns, creating short-term market disruption followed by fresh opportunities.

Tim Bost Forecast Cover Timer Digest
The market forecast and trading service at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com and editor Tim Bost were the subject of a special feature in Timer Digest on March 9, 2015

In Retrospect

Right now, as we look ahead to the actual trading results we’ll be getting in 2017, I’m wondering if perhaps I didn’t stick my neck out a little too far with this forecast.

After all, those Dow numbers do seem pretty incredible.

Even so, I’m sticking by my forecast. If the cycle work I’ve done is even close to being correct, an insanely bullish trend is well within the realm of possibility, especially during the first half of the year.

We’ll just have to see what happens.

Sneak Peek At Webinar Today

When we get together at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time this afternoon for a special live webinar, we’ll be opening up some doors that are usually locked shut so you can get a special sneak peek inside our astro-trading lab.

You’ll discover what my latest research has been revealing, and what our members and students have been sharing about their own challenges and successes in astro-trading. 

It’s a rare opportunity to get an insider’s glimpse at some work in progress.

That means there may be some unanswered questions, but also an unusual opportunity to see a brand-new program in its earliest stages of development.

You Could Be a Key Member of Our R&D Team


And if you decide to connect with me for this live event online, you’ll also learn about how you can become a part of our research and development team yourself – if you’re interested in getting in on the ground floor of the latest breakthroughs in financial astrology!

giphy

The whole plan for this webinar is going to be pretty spontaneous and a little bit experimental, too – I am currently trying out different webinar services to see what can give us the best ways of staying connected. 

That means that things could get a little glitchy technically – but if you’re willing to bear with me, I think you’ll be pretty excited by the information we’ll be discussing. 

To make matters easy for this event, there’s no pre-registration required  – just go online at 4:00 p.m. Eastern (1:00 p.m. Pacific) this afternoon (Wednesday, April 29) and connect with the event using this link:

Oil Prices Today & Tomorrow

So what’s really going on?

Have we seen a true bottom in oil prices today, or is the current upward movement just a sign of a dead-cat bounce?

That’s the topic of a feature article in the current issue of FinancialCyclesWeekly newsletter – it not only talks about the situation in oil prices today, but also reviews the potential for oil trends during the coming months.

Trade ETFs To Play Oil Prices Today

Although Crude Oil Futures grab most of the headlines when it comes to news about oil, remember that you can also get into the trading opportunities offered by oil prices today by getting into oil-based ETFs.

The ETFs don’t offer the same kind of leverage that futures contracts provide, but if you choose your ETF wisely you can still get a lot of bang for your buck, especially if you see that oil prices today are trending strongly.

USO Tracks Oil Prices Today
This trading chart for the USO ETF closely follows the current trend in Crude Oil, since the price of the ETF each day is based on what happens to oil prices today in the futures markets.

For example, United States Oil Fund Limited Partnership (USO) trades on the New York Stock Exchange as an ETF, providing good liquidity and a low barrier to entry for small-scale speculators looking for a play in the oil market, since it closely tracks the trading action in Crude Oil Futures.

The trading chart above shows the way that geocentric Mars and Admetos in the ninth harmonic work together to structure support and resistance in the market action in oil prices today, as reflected in the trading for USO.

Bring On The Transneptunians!

It’s interesting to note the role of the Transneptunian Admetos here.

Many financial astrologers associate the planet Neptune with the oil industry.

They aren’t wrong in doing so, but at times this astrological signature can limit their thinking.

If the observation of planetary factors ends there, it can actually become an obstacle to developing an assessment of oil prices today and a forecast for future trends.

Admetos is connected with raw materials in general, and can be a critical factor in assessing supply-and-demand questions. So when we look at it along with Mars, we can get a pretty good picture of some of the key forces behind oil prices today.

What Do Midpoints Say About Oil Prices Today?

The Mars/Admetos midpoint also figures prominently in the First-Trade horoscope for USO. It’s easy to see its importance on the 90° dial.

Oil Prices Today - USO FT Dial
If we want to figure out what’s going to be happening to oil prices today and in the future, a very good place to start is with the 90-degree dial for USO.

The First-Trade 90° dial for USO shown here reveals the potentially dramatic effect that we may see with Neptune’s retrograde station coming up on June 12, 2015.

The red arrow on the right side of the dial is the position of the Neptune station, which will trigger Moon/Venus, Mars/Admetos, Neptune/Kronos, and Jupiter/Node midpoints in the USO First-Trade horoscope.

This midpoint zone is extremely sensitive, and needs to be watched closely in forecasting oil prices today or at any future time.

By the way, this same midpoint zone has been repeatedly impacted by eclipses in recent years, including the solar eclipse on January 15, 2010, the solar eclipse on June 1, 2011, the lunar eclipse on October 18, 2013, and the lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014.

During the coming years we’ll also be watching the solar eclipse on September 1, 2016 and the lunar eclipse on July 16, 2019 and potential triggers for the oil market as well.

Giving Away $55,515 To Astrology Students

Earlier today I was reviewing all the work we’ve been doing here to get our new class on How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope started.

Registration for the class runs through Thursday, October 2, and the orientaton session for new students will be on Friday, October 3.

Getting to the point where we are today, with students actually able to sign up for the class, is the result of several months of pretty strenuous work.

There have been over 50 videos to shoot and edit, and MP3 audios for each of those videos to get posted on a special website.

The website itself has been a big chore, with more than 175 active pages all linked to each other in order to deliver the course content to the astrology students who register for the How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope class.

And on top of all that, I’ve decided that we’re going to give away more than $55,000 worth of bonus goodies, not only to provide a more comprehensive level of support for our astrology students, but also to make it as absolutely enticing as possible for you to join us for the class.

That give-away has already started – I share some of the details in this (admittedly pretty clunky) video:


Whether you’re a seasoned astrological professional, a newbie among astrology students, or are simply interested in improving your financial future without really connecting to astrology in any way, I know you’ll get a lot out of this course.

But of course you won’t get the benefits if you don’t join the class – which is exactly why I’m trying to make it as irresistible as possible by providing over $3,700 in bonuses for you (more than $55,000 in all).

Stock Market Trading – Blowing Out the NYSE Birthday Candles

The New York Stock Exchange will be 222 years old on Saturday, May 17, and to help celebrate the occasion I’ll be traveling to Nova Southeastern University in the Fort Lauderdale area to lead a financial astrology weekend for the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

During this two-day event I’ll be discussing in-depth market analysis methods for using astrology in stock market trading, looking at individual natal horoscopes to identify the best personal trading strategies, and conducting an intensive workshop designed to demonstrate the state-of-the-art research and assessment techniques we use here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com to help our Gold-Plus Elite members get such strong and consistent results in their personal stock market trading.

The Saturday morning session on “The NYSE at 222” will begin at 10:30 a.m. During that session we’ll explore:

Timing the horoscope for the New York Stock Exchange

Charts for the reorganization and reincorporation of the NYSE

Horoscopes for winning and losing years

Trading in the electronic age

And a lot more.

In “Have You Got the Right Chart for Success in the Markets?” – our session on Saturday afternoon — we’ll encounter the key factors in the natal horoscope that indicate an aptitude for stock market trading, and that signal the potential for success with money in general.

Then on Sunday I’ll be providing a behind-the-scenes look at the analysis and research that go into the in-depth articles, coaching sessions, and one-on-one support we provide for our Gold-Plus Elite members. This is critical information and cutting-edge techniques that you need to know if you want to take a do-it-yourself approach to astro-trading in today’s challenging stock market trading environment.

It all adds up to a great weekend event that can make a huge difference in your personal performance in the markets. It’s the perfect complement to The Basic Stock Market Astrology Home Study Course and other instructional materials that we provide.

Whether you’re an active astro-trader or are just thinking about using astrology with your stock market trading, you’ll get a lot from these presentations, as well as the shared time together between the program sessions.

Although this weekend of events is being sponsored by the local chapter of the NCGR, it’s open to non-members as well. The cost is just $45 for all day on Saturday ($40 for NCGR members) and $90 for the Sunday Intensive. Send an email to Mimi Alonzo at MysticMimi@gmail.com to get pre-registration information.

My Grand Cross Conversation with Arch Crawford

I got a phone call yesterday afternoon from Arch Crawford.

He’s probably the world’s most widely-known financial astrologer, and through his many years of newsletter writing as well as his frequent appearances on TV and radio and at investment conferences, he’s done a wonderful job of introducing the benefits of astro-trading to a global audience.

His monthly newsletter, Crawford Perspectives, offers “quintessential market timing by planetary timing and technical analysis” — it’s well worth checking out. You’ll find it at: http://www.crawfordperspectives.com/

Arch and I have been colleagues and great friends for years, but it had been about 8 months since the last time we’d had a chance to chat at length, so we had a little catching up to do when he called.

After getting connected on personal matters like health and family circumstances, we of course turned to our common interests of astrology and the markets.

Arch had a birthday last week, and I had taken a few minutes away from my W. D. Gann studies then to send him a message wishing him a “pleasant solar return.”

That got his attention.

“How is it possible to have a ‘pleasant solar return’ with THESE kind of planetary aspects?” he wanted to know, referring, of course, to the super-stressful Cardinal Grand Cross that’s now underway.

“I’m not sure how,” I confessed. “Unless it’s just surviving what’s going on right now, and then living to tell the tale. That may be enough of a celebration.”

He chuckled.

“Actually,” he said, “this is pretty serious stuff. The way the Grand Cross hits my personal chart isn’t good at all, and I’m really worried about the impact on the U.S. horoscope.”

The opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange at 9:30 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, April 23, comes just 9 minutes before the square between transiting Mars and Pluto, which brings the Grand Cross pattern into its tightest alignment. The chart for the Opening Bell is shown here in the outer wheel; the inner wheel is one of the popular USA horoscopes. Note the connections between the Grand Cross and the square between Saturn and the Sun/Poseidon conjunction in the USA chart, as well as the conjunctions between transiting Venus and the USA Vulcanus and between transiting Hades and the USA Venus.

Note the connections between the Grand Cross and the square between Saturn and the Sun/Poseidon conjunction in the USA chart, as well as the conjunctions between transiting Venus and the USA Vulcanus and between transiting Hades and the USA Venus.

As experienced astrologers know, there’s a lot of disagreement in the astrological community about the correct birth chart for the U.S.A. Most of the arguments, however, are about the best time of day to use for that horoscope– there seems to be general agreement that July 4, 1776 was an important date in U.S. history, even among those who argue that a different date entirely should be used as the true inception date for the country.

Arch and I didn’t get into any of that controversy. We both agreed that the trigger of the Grand Cross, with transiting Jupiter conjoining the natal Sun and transiting Mars conjoining natal Saturn in any chart for July 4, 1776, could prove to be more than enough to trigger some big challenges for the country as a whole.

While the precision of this alignment seems to be unprecedented in modern history, have been some Jupiter/Uranus waxing squares over the past couple of centuries who effects are worth studying as a clue to what we might have facing us in the coming months. You’ll find a detailed analysis in the e-book on The Stock Market Collision Course at http://bit.ly/ATsmcc.

And what about the markets? Arch Crawford said that he’s currently looking at three time frames that have a high potential for a major pull-back in the equities markets: from now until the early Summer; during the month of October, 2014; and then in January, 2015.

While I agreed with that general outlook, I told him that I’m looking for the Grand Cross pattern this week to light the fuse for some intensified selling action in the equities markets, with prices declining into the solar eclipse on April 29.

Whether or not that will be a major crash remains to be seen, however. I think a more likely scenario is a correction instead of a crash, with the potential for a rebound as we move into May.

And, as I reminded Arch, he and I have both been at this market forecasting game long enough to recognize one thing: if we ever feel absolutely certain about what’s coming up in the markets, then it’s a pretty good signal that we’re wrong.

He laughed and agreed with me. Essentially, we are our own strongest contrary indicators.

He also reminded me of the famous quote from Walt Kelly’s Pogo comic strip (Arch and I are both old enough to remember reading Pogo in the Sunday funnies): “We have met the enemy, and he is us!”

Here’s a Replay from Tuesday’s Special Webinar, When We Discussed “How You Can Profit from the Stock Market Collision Course”

As most of you know by now, we had some pretty big problems with our live webinar Tuesday night.

The webinar itself went great– but lots and lots of people who had registered ahead of time were locked out of this super-charged event!

It was a real pain in the butt for everyone involved, but mainly for the AWeber company, who provides the email processing service that’s hooked up to our webinar registration process.

On Monday night, their computers were attacked by hackers in a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) assault, which flooded their servers with millions and millions of bogus incoming messages all at once. It completely shut down their ability to provide service for their customers– including us, and everybody who was trying to get into the webinar.

Fortunately, though, we did get the session recorded. You can watch the entire webinar here:

By the way, you should definitely get a copy of the new report that’s mentioned in the webinar.
