A spot-on stock market forecast doesn’t happen every day.
The truth is, I don’t even try to make a spot-on stock market forecast every day.
It’s not part of my regular agenda.
Oh sure, I’m in the forecasting business.
It’s part of the contributions I make to astro-trading education, as I watch market patterns and look for active trading opportunities.
I’ve spent much of the past five decades applying astrological tools to predicting future trends, in and out of the markets.
A lot of that work has been pretty accurate.
In fact, my forecasting skill earned me the top honors as the Timer of the Year from Timer Digest in 2017.
But although I’m frequently a guest on financial programs, it’s not always about what’s likely to be coming up next. Forecasting is just part of the picture.
A Sneaky Kind of Event
Even so, there are times when a spot-on stock market forecast just sort of sneaks up on me.
I’ll get engaged in exploring a theory or explaining an idea, and all of a sudden I’ll spot a correlation or a hidden cycle that spontaneously opens up a fresh perception.
That new insight results in a precision forecast – and sometimes that forecast is actually right!
That’s what happened to me a few weeks ago, on Friday, October 16.
I was a guest that day on Larry Pesavento’s Trade What You See program on TFNN.
We talked about the upcoming presidential election., and the chances for Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
We also discussed the latest trends in the S&P 500.
My main focus was the potential impact of the Mercury retrograde period that had just gotten underway a few days before our conversation.
I noted that the direct station at the end of the retrograde period was likely to be a particularly sensitive time, both in and out of the markets.
I also observed that when Mercury went direct, it would be making a powerful square to Saturn.
That observation led me to examine the previous times Saturn had been at the same position in the zodiac since the first of the year.
As it turned out, Saturn had been at 26Capricorn 22 on February 12 and August 23.
On February 12 the S&P 500 closed its trading day at 3379.45.
August 23 was a Sunday, with the markets closed for the day. During the previous trading session, on Friday, August 21, the S&P hit an intra-day low of 3379.31.
The Saturn Coincidence That Led To A Spot-On Stock Market Forecast
This interesting coincidence – and its clear correlation to Saturn positions – prompted me to suggest that we would see the S&P trading at 3379 once again, at the time of the Mercury direct station on November 3.
The Truth Is, I Was Really Sticking My Neck Out
Let’s put that forecast into perspective. When I was talking with Larry, just a few minutes after the opening bell on October 16, the S&P was trading at a much higher level.
In fact, the high on the previous trading day had been 3499.09.
So the S&P would have to drop by about 3.4% in order to hit my forecast target.
But the astrology looked pretty good, so I stuck with my forecast.

What Was The Ultimate Result?
So did this end up being a spot-on stock market forecast?
Almost – just 25 minutes shy of the closing bell on the projected trading day.
Actually, I think that was close enough!
The Mercury station came just a few hours into the trading day on Tuesday, November 3, at 12:50 p.m. Eastern time.
During the previous trading day, on Monday, November 2, the S&P 500 hit a low of 3279.74 – a full 100 points lower than our projected price target of 3379.
Then, on November 3, the S&P gapped higher to start the trading day.
During the course of the trading day, it hit a high price of 3389.49. It closed at 3369.02.
And, at 3:35 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3, it traded at exactly 3379.20. That was 2 hours and 45 minutes after the precise Mercury direct station alignment.
In other words, it was a spot-on stock market forecast – thanks to the power of the astro-trading advantage!
