Bitcoin Support and Resistance

Bitcoin support.

Bitcoin resistance.

Oh no – not another bitcoin post!

Isn’t there anything else going on in the word of astro-trading?

Of course there is.

But the fact is, bitcoin continues to dominate the trading conversation.

And most of the conversation about bitcoin is focused on just how high it can go.

There’s not much market experience or trading savvy in the the conversation, though.

Most of the players and speculators aren’t talking about bitcoin support or bitcoin resistance.

They’re only staring into the stratosphere.

Why Bitcoin Support and Resistance Are So Important

Whether your focus is short-term profit or long-term security, it’s critical to have specific price levels in mind.

You need to establish some expectations of support and resistance zones.

bitcoin support and resistance
Planetary price lines can help establish bitcoin support and resistance zones.

A support zone, by the way, is a price range or a price level that provides a floor for trading activity, an invisible barrier that somehow prevents the price of bitcoin from falling any lower.

A resistance zone does the exact opposite.

It defines an upward limit, an invisible ceiling that keeps rising prices under control.

If bitcoin support or bitcoin resistance get broken with significant trading action that’s either below or above these boundaries, respectively, it delivers an important message to active traders.

So you’ll want to pay attention to those bitcoin support and resistance zones.

If you know what they are, you can make more informed trading decisions.

You can reduce your risk.

And you can also reduce your blood pressure!

Calculating Support and Resistance

As you try to figure out where those critical price levels lie, you can look at trading charts.

You can use your intuition, or just make a blind guess, a shot in the dark.

You may even have a complicated formula that you use to fine-tune your calculations, in an effort to use excruciating precision in setting up your forecasts and expectations.

Or you may want to use astrology.

As I noted in a post a few days ago, there are powerful astrological factors that can work wonders in identifying key bitcoin support and resistance zones.

I talked with Larry Pesavento about them yesterday when I was a guest on his Trade What You See program.

Here’s the video of our discussion during the broadcast:

Planetary Pairs in the Markets

Planetary pairs are one of the keys to effective analysis in astro-trading.

What are planetary pairs?

Basically they’re just two different planets that are used in combination to determine the characteristics of specific market action.

Different planetary pairs can be used with different stocks.

Ideally the planets involved will not only connect with the trading action, but will also relate in some way with the characteristics of the company as well.

But even if you’ve managed to select a good pair, it may not last.

Sometimes the trading energy for a particular stock will shift, and the planetary pairs will no longer describe the trading action accurately.

When that happens it’s up to us as astro-traders to examine other potential combinations of planetary pairs. We begin the search for what’s working now.

Picking The Best Planetary Pairs For Trading

Sometimes that search can be pretty frustrating.

We may look through dozens of planetary pairs, seeking in vain for the precise combination that fits the behavior of the stock we want to trade.

At other times the process of filtering through potential planetary pairs takes almost no time at all.

With a flash of inspiration, the perfect combination seems to appear magically!

But what is it that makes the perfect combination?

Fast and Slow

Ideally, you’re looking for one fast-moving planet and one slower-moving planet.

The faster planet will often help define trading trends, while its slower-moving companion helps structure key zones of support and resistance.

And fast and slow are always comparative.

Mercury is faster than Jupiter, but Jupiter is faster than Pluto.

Generally speaking, though, when you pick a fast planet you’ll be selecting the Sun or the Moon, or Mercury, Venus, or Mars.

For slower-moving planets you’ve got lots of options.

Transneptunians As Slow Planets

The Transneptunian Factors are particularly slow moving, which can make them extremely useful in constructing planetary pairs for market analysis.

We discussed this briefly in our recent webinar on the current Admetos action. Our focus was “The Hidden Transneptunian Transition Just Ahead” – the session provided an in-depth look at some critical factors other financial astrologers have overlooked. The webinar recording is worth downloading and reviewing in detail.

A Free Resource From TradersWorld


As a result of some focused research on the importance of planetary pairs, I wrote an article which has recently been published in Issue #63 of TradersWorld magazine. It takes a detailed look at the importance of this kind of planetary calculation, and why it’s so critical for astro-traders to include it in their work.

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 Round of Eclipse Effects

In the past few days we’ve started to see the residual effects of the April solar eclipse playing out in the markets, especially in relation to the next solar eclipse, which is coming up in October.

The 2-eclipse midpoint is an important stress period in market timing, and that eclipse effect hits a peak this weekend, with a focus on the trading action on Monday, July 28.

That means it’s appropriate to look at the price levels associated with potential resistance in the S&P based on the interactions of these two eclipses.

Here’s what that look like:


We’ll be watching these resistance zones closely during the next couple of weeks, since significant action at any of these price levels could help us more clearly define the price action we need to be keeping an eye on a little later in the year.

Jupiter & Apollon Hit the S&P, the Dollar, and Indonesia, Too!

We’re currently tracking the impact of the big Jupiter/Apollon waning square as it hits the market action around the world.

As this chart shows, it’s been active in defining the stock market trading action for the S&P 500 already:

But the influence of this cosmic event doesn’t stop with the U.S. markets. As you can see, these planets have also help provide support for the Indonesian Composite Index during recent trading on the stock exchange in Jakarta, just prior to the recent run-up. Will it also nail a resistance level when the rally runs out of steam?

The dollar has been impacted, too, as this chart for the U.S. Dollar Index reveals:

A Mercury Direct Stress Test & Stock Market Trading

This has been an eventful day, to say the least.

Mercury returned to direct motion this morning, after being retrograde since June 7.

That seemed to be good news for stock market trading, with all the major market indices breaking through previous resistance today to move to higher levels for the remainder of the trading day

Actually, Mercury resumption of direct motiont was a welcome transition at a lot of levels, especially since the last few days had seen more than their share of chaos, miscommunications, and general weirdness.

A couple of examples–

Yesterday, with Mercury in its final day of retrograde motion, I released my new e-book (what was I thinking when I picked THAT time!?!) on How To Time The Next Market Trading Top.


This is an important new report which is the result of some months of research, back-testing, writing, and editing, so I was really glad to be able to make it available through my publishing company at Harmonic Research Associates.

But Mercury was retrograde so things got screwed up. A lot of people who ordered the instant download of this new publication got a confirmation email, but instead of getting this new report they gold a year-old monograph instead!

Not exactly what I had planned on, and it took us almost 24 hours to get everything straightened out, and to deliver copies of the real item to the people who had requested it.

And then, on a more personal level, there’s the repair work that just getting underway on the building that houses our penthouse condo overlooking the Manatee River here in Florida.

The condo association has contracted to have the exterior stucco repaired and the building repainted. That’s a nifty idea, except for the fact that virtually the entire outside of the seven-story building is going to be jack-hammered, with about six weeks of pounding, scraping and other chaos ahead of us. It’s a massive operation, and since we’re on the top floor, all the scaffolding and pulley systems for moving materials around are going to be installed right outside the window of my home office here, with plenty of turmoil in evidence throughout the month-and-a-half operation.

But here’s the kicker.

We had been told that this whole building repair thing was going to start in mid-August, so Patty and I have been making plans to work around that event as best we can.

That’s why we were especially surprised when we got back from lunch yesterday (June 30, with Mercury still retrograde) to discover that access to the front door of our condo had been blocked by massive construction equipment that the contractors had moved into place during our two-hour absence. They began the renovation work about six weeks ahead of schedule, and spent the rest of the afternoon pounding on the sides of the building, running noisy motors, and generally creating a commotion that’s sure to become the norm for the next month or so, whether we like it or not.

It’s not that I’m complaining, mind you. The building truly needs this work badly, and I’m really looking forward to having the renovation done.

But the bad timing and the botched communications still surprised me — as if I really needed a fresh lesson on the power of Mercury retrograde to mess things up!

And so today, Mercury returned to direct motion.

At last!

As this celestial event took place, was in the office of my cardiologist, getting ready to step onto a treadmill for a stress test, with a tube in my arm and all kinds of wires coming out of my chest.

I wasn’t really thinking too much about Mercury going direct at that moment, but the whole treadmill experience was a lot less challenging than I had anticipated, and the nurse who was working with me seemed impressed with what she observed.

I’ll have to wait until next week to review all the results with my cardiologist– this is my first full stress test since my heart surgery last October, so it’s good that we’ll be looking at the numbers when Mercury is no longer retrograde.

And I’m glad that Mercury had gone direct when I stepped onto the treadmill this morning!


Video Review of S&P Stock Market Trading

As I’ve been putting the finishing touches on the new report on “How To Time The Next Market Trading Top” (it’s scheduled for release on June 30), I’ve had a chance to review our most recent forecast of resistance for the S&P 500 based on planetary factors and harmonic configurations.

The results have been pretty impressive for getting improved returns from your stock market trading, especially since the S&P was up during the trading day today, but still closed below our 1964 resistance point.

I’ve just posted a video that reviews the action, from the date that I first put the forecast together through the market close today:

Hitting Astro-Resistance in Stock Market Trading

For the last couple of trading days I’ve been keeping a close eye on the 1,964 price level in the S&P 500 index.

When I was on Michael Yorba’s radio show last week, I had used my astrological studies and harmonics work to identify two potential areas of resistance for stock market trading in the S&P – at 1,964 and at 2,009.

On Friday and Monday the 1,964 resistance zone held firm, with the index trading as high as 1,963 and change both days– but no higher.

Today, however, the intraday action in the S&P has already moved above the 1,964 level. As I’m writing this the index stands at 1,966.08; earlier today it moved a little bit above 1,968.

Does this mean that the 1,964 resistance level has been broken?

Possibly, but I won’t consider it a sure thing until after the closing bell for trading today.

If the S&P closes the session today above the 1,964 mark, I’ll consider it to be a signal that the resistance is no longer holding.

If that happens, I’ll be looking for another close above 1,964 in tomorrow’s trading to confirm the breakout. If that takes place, we’ll be watching for resistance at 2,009 next.

But my back-testing and astrological studies still seem pretty clear at this point that there’s considerable bearish pressure right now, so I’m anticipating a price pull-back before the end of the day.

If we get a pull-back, and if the S&P closes today at 1,964 or below, it will give us strong confirmation that our astrological was correct, and we’ll be looking for a further move to the downside before the end of the week in our stock market trading, with the possibility of a rebound during the final trading sessions on Thursday or Friday.

By the way, if haven’t put your name on the early-bird list for notification about our new publication on “How To Time The Next Market Trading Top” this is the time to take action! You’ll find the link to the list at:


Stock Market Trading Forecasts & Astrological Observations

I always appreciate our readers who take time to leave comments and suggestions when they connect with the posts on this blog.

There are many times when their comments get right to the point, expressing key concepts that I’ve been grappling with or adding some much-needed clarity and conciseness to our discussions of the role that planetary factors play in stock market trading.

But there are also times when our readers seem to get a little bit confused.

There are some occasions when they may be looking for market forecasts or astro-trading predictions about specific market directions, and then express their frustration that we sometimes look at market astrology in retrospect, rather than devoting all of our attention to dazzling market previews that provide precise price and time information ahead of schedule.

At other times they share complaints that the information we share is too vague or imprecise. For example, when we pointed out that Monday’s Neptune retrograde station coincided with 1951.03 in the S&P, it provoked some disagreement.

On the following trading day, when the S&P hit an intra-day high of 1950.79, we took it as a confirmation that Neptune was making its influence felt in the markets, but some of our readers seemed to think that this 0.24 point discrepancy was a demonstration of the fact that astro-trading techniques don’t work.

The fact that the Neptune station had actually nailed a trading top was confirmed in yesterday’s trading, of course, with equity prices pulling back and the S&P dropping to close at 1943.89. But even so, it didn’t signify an accurate forecast on my part— because I hadn’t specifically forecast a trading top with the Neptune station at all!

While I had repeatedly written and commented about the Neptune station in the weeks leading up to the event, and while I had pointed out that this particular planetary phenomenon has a back-tested track record for general bearishness, I didn’t really present that information as a prediction or market forecast.

Instead, I was trying to encourage our readers and other traders to watch the market reactions to the Neptune station– and that’s exactly what we were doing here when we observed the Neptune station price level in the S&P turning into firm resistance and establishing a trading top.

Don’t get me wrong– I do enjoy making market forecasts based on planetary phenomena, and I’m especially happy when those forecasts turn out to be accurate. But I also find it worthwhile just to step back and observe what’s going on in the markets from time to time, using those opportunities to learn a little more about the amazing correlations between cosmic cycles and the dynamics of stock market trading.

Stock Market Trading at the Neptune Station

Yesterday’s Neptune retrograde station didn’t coincide precisely with an intra-day high in the equities markets, but it did help define a significant top for stock market trading.


Neptune Retrograde Station & the S&P
The price levels in the S&P 500 at the exact time of the Neptune retrograde station on Monday, June 9, were in play at the closing bell on Tuesday, June 10, when the S&P hit its high for the day, confirming the strength of the Neptune station in defining a trading top.

When we were watching the action in the S&P 500 as the Neptune retrograde station reached its precise alignment just 10 minutes before the closing bell, we noted that the price was at 1951.03.

Although that specific price point didn’t have much time to make its influence felt during the few remaining minutes of the trading day on Monday, it proved to be significant as the action in stock market trading unfolded on Tuesday.

The S&P finished the trading day on Tuesday at 1350.79, level than one-fourth of a point away from the Neptune retrograde price level set during the previous trading session.

We’ll have to wait and see, of course, whether or not this will define a trading top on a longer-term basis.

But for the time being, It’s great confirmation of the power of the planets in impacting market action in the real world of astro-trading.
