Equinox Forecast with Larry Pesavento

I had an opportunity to share my equinox forecast during a great interview yesterday with Larry Pesavento on his “Trade What You See” radio show on TFNN.

As with any major pivot point in the markets, a calendar-based equinox forecast is not just about a specific date (although that’s certainly important).

As we look ahead with this equinox forecast, we’re much more concerned about the specific astrological alignments that can trigger significant market movements.

In this case, that’s the upcoming Cardinal Ingress just a few days from now – the movement of the Sun into the zodiacal sign of Libra.

What W. D. Gann Saw In An Equinox Forecast

This key passage into Libra is the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere, marking the first day of Spring.

It’s an event that W. D. Gann paid a lot of attention to. He knew just how significant it can be in triggering key turning points in the overall market environment. It also impacts specific trade set-ups as well.

In fact, Gann gave special attention to all four Cardinal Ingresses each year – not only in his published forecasts and work for his private clients, but also in his own chart work and personal assessments of emerging market trends.

His remarkable insights can be applied to any equinox effectively. They are also useful whenever there’s a solstice, at the start of Winter or Summer.

A Particularly Powerful Example

In this particular case, the upcoming equinox looks like it will be a particularly powerful turning point in the market action.

That likelihood is due to the fact that the equinox isn’t acting alone. It’s combined with other planetary influences. It needs to be taken into context.

When we focus on the broader picture, we can gain valuable insights.

We can also develop more effective trading strategies, and get more rewarding results in the markets, too!

Here’s the replay of the complete interview with Larry Pesavento:

 

Larry Pesavento Talks Astrology

Larry Pesavento is a remarkable guy.

He’s a top-performing commodities trader and market analyst.

He’s also a trainer of traders.

And a few decades ago, Larry Pesavento wrote a couple of extraordinary books detailing his explorations into the application of astrology in trading.

But even though he’s incredibly knowledgeable in astro-trading, he doesn’t claim to be an astrologer.

In fact, he emphatically denies it!

Larry Pesavento On The Radio

So I was particularly delighted when Larry Pesavento invited me too be his guest on his syndicated radio program, Trade What You See.

I joined him there last Monday, on April 9.

And thanks to the magic of the internet, I’ve been able to get a copy of that interview – along with the video feed that accompanied it.

Here’s the segment of Larry’s show that includes the interview:

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).

In the meantime, here’s the recording of yesterday’s interview on the Traders Network show:

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!

A New Look at the Venus Stock Market Trading Top

During my interview with Michael Yorba on his Traders Network radio show yesterday, we had a chance to talk about the role that Venus has been playing in defining price levels for this week’s stock market trading top.

In our previous conversation I had identified Venus-based price resistance as potentially stopping the advance in the S&P 500 at 1903.35, based on the work I had done using techniques developed by W. D. Gann to analyze the Venus/Pluto waxing square on May 14. (You’ll find more details on that forecast on my May 8 Blog Post.)

As it turned out, however, the exact time for the stock market trading top was at 10:44 Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, May 13, with the S&P turning at 1902.17 instead.

S&P 500 Stock Market Trading at Venus Top
A look at the one-minute price bars for the S&P 500 shows the way that planetary price action can influence stock market trading opportunities. The trading top came at 10:44 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

When Michael and I discussed this yesterday, he was quick to praise the accuracy of my forecast, and I talked about the role that the upcoming Mars station is already playing in speeding up some of the planetary phenomena that we’re looking at as potential movers of the price action in stock market trading right now.

After the radio interview, however, I did some more thinking about what had happened in the markets earlier in the week.

Why had the resistance point been hit on Tuesday instead of Wednesday?

And why was the top at 1902 instead of 1903? I was a little puzzled.

Then it dawned on me.

Venus moves pretty fast, so on May 13 it wasn’t yet in a position that corresponded with 1903 in the S&P!

I took a look at the horoscope for the actual trading top, and calculated the S&P price level that corresponded with the position of Venus when the stock market trading top occurred:

Venus Position at Trading Top
The red arrow here points to the position of Venus at the precise time that the action in stock market trading with the S&P 500 hit its high of 1902.17 (the exact Venus location corresponded to 1902.05).

Obviously, 1902.05 is a lot closer to 1902.17 than 1903.35 is– so close, in fact, that it unequivocally confirms the role Venus has been playing in articulating active price resistance this week.

But what was Venus doing that made the market turn on May 13 instead of May 14?

The 90-degree dial for the stock market trading top answered that question fast:

Venus Trading Top 90-degree Dial
The position of Venus (at the red pointer) on the 90-degree dial for the moment of the trading top in stock market trading on May 13, 2014 shows its activation of the Mars/Zeus midpoint (indicating decision action and a technical turning point) and the Jupiter/Kronos midpoint (growth to the highest possible level) – a combination that clearly signals the potential for a trading top at that time, with Venus defining the exact price level.

This unique combination of midpoint structures provides a startling definition of a trading top. And these specific planetary signals also gave us a dramatic reminder of just how important it is for us to use transneptunian factors like Zeus and Kronos in our astro-trading forecasts!

The bottom line here is this– not all of our forecasts are correct, but when they miss the mark (even very slightly), it’s sometimes worth the extra effort to take another look to see what we can learn in retrospect.

That’s how the art and science of astro-trading keep moving ahead!
