Transneptunian One-Two Punch

The transneptunian one-two punch is making its presence felt.

But it’s understandable if you weren’t fully aware of what’s really going on.

Here’s the story.

Stocks put in a strong showing today. The rally was based on the potential for a US-China trade agreement.

At least that’s what the mainstream financial media would have you believe.

But for the most part they ignore the astrological dynamics behind the scenes. That’s where the real action is.

From the astro-trading perspective, we’re viewing things a little bit differently.

Transneptunian One-Two Punch
When Hades and Kronos slug it out, we can feel the impact in the markets!

The surge in stock prices coincided perfectly with the big Transneptunian One-Two Punch that we’ve been forecasting.

The Transneptunian One-Two Punch

What’s that all about?

Two transneptunians, Hades and Kronos, are now in the midst of back-to-back retrograde stations.

That’s an extremely powerful event.

We’ve been expecting it to have a big impact on the markets. Not just on stocks, but precious metals, bonds, futures, currencies and more.

We explored all the dynamics of this powerful event – including proven back-testing results – during our live training webinar a few days ago.

This advanced training session was all about The Transneptunian One-Two Punch.

It was an 88-minute event packed with valuable information you can use in your own trading right now.

We had a big crowd and great participation – it was a highly energized training event!

It truly set the stage for today’s big close to the trading week – and for the more challenging market action that lies just ahead.

Stock Market Crash Forecast From A Gold Bug

A big stock market crash is on the way.

In fact, according to a pro-gold research organization, it’s due right now!

It’s Time For The Stock Market Crash – All Three Major US Indices Have Broken Record Highs

That’s the compelling headline for a recent blog post at Palisade Research.

The post argues that the simultaneous record highs set by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 Index, and the NASDAQ Composite Index is a strong indicator that a major top is in.

And if a top is in, of course, a big stock market crash is on the way!

stock market crash because of record highs

Palisade Research illustrated the blog post with this dramatic chart. It not only shows the price lines for the Dow, the S&P, and the NASDAQ. It also shows the HUI Index, which is the NYSE Arca Gold BUGS Index. (Palisade Research has an unabashed bullish bias on precious metals.)

According to Palisade Research, “The last time the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), and NASDAQ closed simultaneously at record highs, each index tumbled for the next 2.5 years: -40.33%, 25.04%, and -75.04%, respectively.”

If History Really Repeats Itself, Just How Bad Will The Stock Market Crash Be?

The classic warning in the markets, of course, is that “past performance is no guarantee of future results.”

That’s true when we want to make optimistic assumptions about our trading prospects. It’s true when we seek to justify big positions on the basis of our back-testing and the big successes we may have experienced in the past.

But it’s also true of doom and gloom predictions, too!

Even so, Palisade Research doesn’t hesitate to extrapolate the likelihood of a major plunge based on what happened after the most recent stock market crash and its predecessor 14 years ago:

“In fact,” the blog post notes, “if the market were to correct in a similar way as we saw in 2002 and 2009, we can expect the S&P 500, DJIA, and NASDAQ to drop -64.65%, -60.72%, -75.80%, respectively.”

So will get a giant stock market crash in the weeks ahead?

Time will tell. It’s been almost 2 years since we mentioned a possible stock market crash.

But our analysis definitely shows the potential for consolidation, if not an outright correction.

And with the current eclipse cycle getting underway, this is definitely a time for stock market bulls to be extremely cautious!

Michael Phelps – What Are Gold Medals Worth?

Michael Phelps has been winning gold medals. But how much are they really worth?

After all, the Olympic swimmer has got a bunch of them!

He has broken record after record, setting an incredibly high standard that others can only aspire to meet.

From the astrological perspective he’s a sun-sign Cancer, which is a water sign (of course!). His goal-oriented Sagittarius Moon keeps him focused on one achievement after another.

What he does in the pool transcends mere swimming. It’s not even just about racing or competition.

He has modeled self-discipline at a truly amazing level, taking athletic training to extremes (both phyisically and mentally) that can only be described as insanely obsessive.

His name has become virtually synonymous with the Olympic games themselves.

Michael Phelps is scheduled to swim one last time tonight in Rio as an Olympian when he joins Team USA for a relay event.

In all likelihood, it will give him one more shot at winning yet another gold medal.

And after that, he’s retiring.

At least that’s what he says he’s going to do – he said the same thing after the 2012 Olympics in London.

Michael Phelps
Michael Phelps is extremely good at collecting gold medals

But, of course, he’s back this year, turning in more dazzling performances in the pool. . . and grabbing more gold along the way.

And who really knows what the 2020 Olympics will bring? A lot can happen between now and then.

But What About The Medals Phelps Has?

If they were to go on the auction block, what would they bring?

Would just the fact that Michael Phelps won them add to their value?

And what about the intrinsic metallic value of the medals themselves?

The gold medals that Michael Phelps has won are, after all, only gold plated. (You were thinking they were maybe solid gold?)

There’s some really interesting math involved when you try to figure it all out.

An article in today’s Washington Post offers some useful perspectives:

Solar Eclipse Insights You Need

We’ve got an important solar eclipse coming up on September 13. So we’re definitely going to be looking for an impact in the markets.

A Powerful Solar Eclipse

This is a partial solar eclipse.

But it’s still going to be pretty powerful.

It’s a part of Saros Series 125. The first solar eclipse in that long sequence took place back in the year 1060.

And in fact there are some pretty amazing connections from 1060 to the circumstances we’re confronting today around the time of this latest eclipse.

The eclipse on September 13 also has a big impact on Donald Trump’s natal horoscope.

While the Trump connection may be entertaining (and maybe even politically important, too), it’s really the potential impact that the eclipse brings to the markets that’s most important to us as astro-traders.

A Detailed Study

That’s why I’ve put a couple of months into researching the eclipse effects on major markets around the globe. I’ve also looked at precious metals, currencies, vital commodities, and key organizations that can impact the world economy.

I’ve also reviewed the lunar returns to the solar eclipse horoscope, studied upcoming eclipse activation points, and identified special trading situations based on the anticipated effects of the solar eclipse.

I also turned to mundane astrologer Jim Cummins, to get his unique insights into the potential eclipse effects in the geopolitical realm. While I may not always agree with his politics, Jim’s observations are always work reading.

The result is a 128-page e-book which has just been released by Harmonic Research Associates.

The new e-book Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015

It’s called Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015.

You’ll definitely want to grab a copy – it’s not only relevant as we get ready for the eclipse this weekend; it also has plenty of specific eclipse trading information you’ll be profiting from for months to come!

A New Buy Signal For Gold

tance, adinastro-tradingPrices for the yellow metal advanced nicely during the closing days of the trading week, triggering a new buy signal for gold in astro-trading.

At FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, we had been on a sell signal since early February, and the  move we captured with that bearish position helped us earn a ranking in the Top 5 Gold Timers in the current issue of Timer Digest.

The new buy signal for gold now aligns us with many other timers in this market – but the proof will ultimately be revealed in the market for the precious metal during the coming months.

What’s The Astrology Behind A Buy Signal For Gold?

We watch many planetary factors in our market timing, but over and over again I’ve found that interactions of the Sun and Kronos help determine significant levels of support and resistance for Gold.

Once again, we’re seeing Kronos come into play to trigger a buy signal for gold.

On Thursday, the yellow metal made a big move up and closed just above an eighth-harmonic Kronos planetary price line that had been providing significant resistance all year.

On Friday Gold traded through that line even more emphatically, pushing to an even higher close.

Gold Buy Signal Kronos
The current buy signal for gold comes from the metal’s successful penetration of price resistance provided by an eighth-harmonic planetary price line for the transneptunian Kronos.

While this latest price action aligned with Kronos is impressive, it’s also helpful to put it into perspective by looking at previous occasions when Kronos and the Sun figured prominently in defining the trading action for Gold.

For example, an article published in FinancialCyclesWeekly in September 2014 offers some insights that are still relevant today. It reveals why Kronos and the Sun are such powerful factors in trading Gold successfully, whether we are seeing a downturn in the precious metal or whether the planets are giving us a new buy signal for Gold.

Another Emerald Tablet Trade for Gold

In the book Mercury, Money and the Markets: Profitable Planetary Cycles for Short-Term Astro-Trading, there’s a description of the Emerald Tablet trading technique for Gold, as well as a complete list of dates between 2012 and 2050 when this trade set-up can occur for the yellow metal.

It’s a simple technique, and one that every astro-trader in precious metals needs to know about.

As the book explains, this unique approach to Gold involves an observation of the trading range on the date of a Sun/Mercury inferior conjunction, and then watching for price excursions beyond that range to set up potential profits on the date of the next Sun/Mercury superior conjunction, when Gold is likely to return to (or at least overlap) the previous trading range.

For example, this phenomenon last occurred between February and April this year, with Gold closing at 1303.60 on April 25 in a return to the 1299.90 – 1321.50 trading range established in mid-February: We are now nearing the completion of another such cycle, with the Sun/Mercury superior conjunction on August 8 likely to see Gold touching the trading range that was established on June 19:

We’ll discuss these charts and review coming price trends during the webinar tonight:

Astro-Trading Silver at the Summer Solstice

When I was interviewed by Michael Yorba on his Traders Network radio show yesterday, we had a great chance to discuss this weekend’s Summer Solstice and it potential impact on the markets.

The Summer Solstice will arrive at 6:51 a.m. EDT on Saturday morning, June 21st.

This event is carrying some extra weight this year because of the recent activations of the 90-degree cardinal point at the beginning of Cancer by Venus and Mercury. These events have already shown their importance in moving the markets; the Summer Solstice is the Sun’s activation of that same 90-degree point in the cardinal axis. That’s just one of the reasons that W. D. Gann gave it so much attention.

To get an idea about the potential impact of the Summer Solstice on stock market trading, be sure to check out this chart for the historic effect on the S&P 500. As you can see, our back-testing of this index during this annual event gives us good reason to consider adding some short positions to the Financial Cycles Model Portfolio at this time.

But not all markets are likely to decline at the Summer Solstice. Take a look at what happened to Silver when this event took place last year:

Silver Summer Solstice 2013
Silver responded emphatically to the Summer Solstice in 2013, with the precious metal climbing by nearly 13% in the month of trading just after this key planetary event.

Needless to say, if you’re interested in trading precious metals, be sure to your homework thoroughly! Even though we got a big bounce in Silver at the Summer Solstice last year, and even though the Summer Solstice coming within three trading days of an isolated low in Silver about 76% of the time, this event only triggers a trend reversal to the upside about 29% of the time. So a rally in Silver (or in any other precious metals) is not a foregone conclusion following the Summer Solstice this year.

You’ll get more details about the Summer Solstice activation of the 90-degree cardinal point and its creation of a major zodiac pressure point for the markets in this recording of the complete 10-minute interview with Michael Yorba during yesterday’s show on the Traders Network:

By the way, during this interview I mentioned to Michael that I’m currently working on some new planetary cycle research to help fine-turn our understanding of the trading top that’s just ahead of us in the equities markets. This new report on “How To Time The Next Market Top” will be available in about a week; CLICK HERE if you’d like to get on the list for early-bird notification as soon as it’s available.

What’s Happening with Gold Trading Astrology?

With the situation in Iraq spiraling downward so precipitously and lots of uncertainty hitting the markets for Crude Oil, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see Gold getting some extra attention.

The yellow metal typically climbs in price whenever there’s some kind of geopolitical crisis brewing.

But in this case, we need to be paying attention to Gold trading astrology, too. It looks like Gold is getting some help from the Sun/Kronos combination that has had such a profound effect on the price of the precious metal in recent years.

In particular, we got a Sun/Kronos parallel last week as Gold was moving into rally mode; that parallel of declination will be coming into play toward the end of the month, as we get ready for the Sun/Kronos conjunction on June 29.

My expectation is that the Sun/Kronos conjunction then will give us the trigger we need for a substantial rally in Gold as we move into July and August.

If that’s the case, then the response we’ve seen in the last week with the Sun/Kronos parallel is just a preview of coming attractions!

By the way, you can see a chart for Gold that features the Sun/Kronos dynamics on the FinancialCyclesWeekly.com website. Check it out at:

Unanswered Questions as the Planets Impact Stock Market Trading Movements

Wow!

I always enjoy the opportunity to chat with Michael Yorba when he invites me to be a guest on his Traders Network radio show– we discuss the upcoming prospects for stock market trading, and he does a really great job of asking questions that bring the planetary connections with market movements into an understandable perspective.

But during our time on the air together just before the closing bell on Wall Street yesterday, the conversation was not only lively– it took us into a lot of interrelated topics that ultimately provided a great overview of the big-picture situation in the markets today.

As Michael put it during the interview, “A lot of people are yawning at the markets now, but I’m not so sure that this is one of those yawning moments. It could be the start of something big.”

We touched on the impact of Mercury and Neptune on current conditions in stock market trading, on crude oil and precious metals, on the geopolitical troubles that have been brewing (and which have been described so incisively by our friend and colleague Jim Cummins in his articles for FinancialCyclesWeekly.com), on the prospects for increasing market volatility as we look at the VIX during the coming weeks, and a whole lot more.

In fact, we actually ran out of time during the interview, and Michael had to sign off with an unanswered question still dangling– about today’s potent combination of Friday the 13th and the Full Moon.

I’ll be putting up a new blog post on that subject within the next couple of hours, so be sure to check back then (or Subscribe To This Blog to get email notifications whenever a new post is added).

Planetary Shifts and Stock Market Trading

Mercury goes into retrograde motion today, and on Monday Neptune will do the same.

This combination of planets changing direction creates a strong possibility for a change in trend direction for stock market trading, currencies, and precious metals as well.

That’s what I discussed with Michael Yorba when I was a guest on his Traders Network radio program earlier this week. We also had a chance to talk about some of the emotional and psychological implications of the planetary stations we’re confronting now– an important consideration for informed astro-traders who want to make money in the markets!
