Electoral College Solar Eclipse Looms Large

When I joined Larry Pesavento on his Trade What You See program on TFNN on Wednesday, we spent a lot of time talking about the upcoming Electoral College Solar Eclipse.

The big cosmic event is set for December 14 – which is the same day that the electors will be meeting in state capitols throughout the United States, to certify the votes for U.S. President.

That’s all taking place against the background of ongoing disputes about the election outcome,

Disputes and disagreements so volatile, in fact, that they’re provoking outright acts of violence against politicians, pollsters, parties, and innocent by-standers as well.

The eclipse effects won’t be limited to politics, of course, even though we can look for it to intensify partisan confrontations considerably.

We can also expect to see the soar eclipse make an impact in global affairs, economic trends, social dynamics, and the markets, too. They will all emphasize the enormous role that mental power will be playing in moving events forward during the coming weeks and months.

We’ll be taking a look at all those factors during our special live training session on Saturday, December 5.

We’re doing this special session to make sure you can be fully prepared for the big solar eclipse effects well ahead of time. And because it’s a live online session, we’ll be able to take all the time we need to get specific answers to your questions and concerns.

Enrollment is limited, but if you act fast you can still register at a 90% tuition discount. You won’t want to miss it!

Trading Turn Just Ahead

The Spring Equinox is coming up fast, giving us an opportunity for an important trading turn.

It’s big enough to impact all the markets.

The equinox marks the passage of the Sun into Aries.

It’s the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere, and the start of Autumn south of the equator.

It was a favorite timing indicator for trading turn calculation by W. D. Gann, the pioneering astro-trader.

Gann also marked the date prominently on his trading squares and wheels as he pondered the market action with his unique price and time tools.

Setting Up A Trading Turn

This year’s Spring Equinox is on March 20 – that’s less than a week away.

It’s going to be especially powerful. That’s why we’re looking for to trigger a significant trading turn.

Why is this one more powerful than usual?

It’s because the astrological events surrounding the equinox create a piling-on effect.

This year the Spring Equinox comes on the same day as a Full Moon.

In fact, those two events are less than four hours apart.

And on top of that, we’ll be getting lots of extra action in planetary declination on the same day.

The Sun will be parallel the current two-eclipse midpoint.

The Sun will be parallel the January eclipse antiscion.

The Sun will be parallel the eclipse point from the solar eclipse last August.

And the Sun will also be parallel the eclipse antiscion from that same August solar eclipse.

Since some of that planetary action will be precise in the hours following the closing bell on March 20, we may actually see the trading turn hitting on March 21 instead.

But whether a trading turn comes on March 20 or on March 21, the current uptrend suggests a shift to the downside.

That gives a reason to believe that a trading turn next week will mark a short-term trading top.

Double Retrograde Discussion with Larry Pesavento

When Larry Pesavento interviewed me this morning, we had a chance to talk about the impact of the recent double retrograde phenomenon.

We also took a look at the upcoming trends in the equities markets.

We even got in a bird’s eye view of the cryptocurrency markets.

Interview Recording

Here’s the entire interview, featuring the double retrograde impact and a whole lot more. It was broadcast earlier today on tfnn.com internet TV:

Double Retrograde Effect

The first of the trading charts that we shared with Larry during our conversation this morning dealt specifically with the double retrograde alignment. That’s what has coincided so sharply with the market action overall.

Solstice Energies

As we’ve noted repeatedly during the past few weeks, the Winter Solstice has the potential for triggering a short-term rally in stock prices.

Astro-Cycle Projection Dates

We found further confirmation for short-term swing action to the upside when we looked at this astro-cycle trading chart.

Solar Eclipse Webinar

We think that the solar eclipse coming up on January 5 is going to have an unexpectedly strong effect on the globe as a whole. That’s why I’m doing a special free webinar on the eclipse on December 28.

Eclipse Effects Still Coming On Strong

Eclipse effects can be amazingly long-lasting.

The last of the summer eclipses was a week ago.

It was the partial solar eclipse on August 11.

Eclipse Effects Still To Come

It may seem like that was the end of the story.

But the biggest impacts of the entire eclipse series – two solar eclipses and one lunar eclipse – are still to come!

Whether you’re setting up trading strategies or just trying to keep up with world events, there’s a lot to prepare for.

That’s why we put together not one, but two special eclipse reports to review all the dimensions of these extraordinary events.

Despots & Decisions

Eclipse Effects - Despots Decisions

In the first one, Despots & Decisions, we drilled into the impact of the partial solar eclipse in July. We took a special look at the eclipse effects on leaders around the globe.

Each of these key people is experiencing the eclipse effects in some very different ways!

I guess we could say it’s just a case of Different Strokes for Different Folks – but when some of these folks have nuclear weapons and huge standing armies, it’s not quite so simple!

Irresistible Force

Eclipse Effects - Irresistible Force

In our second report, Irresistible Force, the focus was mainly on the impact of the partial solar eclipse in August.

What was noteworthy about that most recent solar eclipse was the Saros series it was a part of.

Prior to this August event, there had only been five previous eclipses in that series – and all of them took place at at times when we have stock market data for back-testing!

That’s a remarkable event as far as studying eclipse effects goes. So we took a deep-dive look into all those previous solar eclipses.

Double Eclipse Bundle

As I was saying, there’s a lot to prepare for during the coming months. And there are a lot of resources in these two in-depth reports.

Eclipse Effects - Double Eclipse Bundle

That’s why I’m glad my publisher has combined the e-book versions of these two publications into a special offer of a Double Eclipse Bundle.

You can get both e-books as an instant download – and save about 60 percent off the regular price of buying them individually.

It’s something you’ll definitely want to get your hands on. These are vital tools for getting the full advantage out of the eclipse effects that are still ahead!

Be sure to take a look to get the full advantage of the opportunities ahead.

Getting Ready For The Solar Eclipse

It’s almost time for the next big solar eclipse.

As usual, I’ve been working on an in-depth analysis of its potential – both for the markets and for the broader arena of geopolitical concerns.

The results are now in print!

Our new book, Surprising Alliances: Eclipse Effects In Markets & Geopolitics, is now in print.

Solar Eclipse Questions From Michael Yorba

I had a great chat yesterday with Michael Yorba, who had me on his new radio show to answer solar eclipse questions.

Michael has been the host of several important financial radio and TV shows in the past.

Tim Bost - Guest on CEO MoneyI’m always glad when he calls me to request an interview. His questions are always insightful, and he’s a big fan of astro-trading.

Michael’s current program is called CEO Money.

It’s featured on iHeartRadio originating in Dallas, Texas on 1190 AM Talk Radio.

Our conversation about the most pressing solar eclipse questions was featured on two of the show’s four segments yesterday.

Solar Eclipse Questions – Part 1

During the final segment of the program, the first solar eclipse questions focused on the eclipse impact on world leaders.

Mervyn Price, Michael’s co-host on the program, also got into the conversation. He wanted to know about the potential for profits in a variety of markets.

There was also a discussion about BitCoin and the future of cryptocurrencies. That’s an exciting new field that we’re going to be hearing a lot more about!

Solar Eclipse Questions – Part 2

During the interview we did get to discuss my new book – The Big One: The Great American Eclipse and Its Impact On The Markets. It’s been selling briskly on Amazon.com.

New Book Answers Key Solar Eclipse Questions

Solar Eclipse Questions are answered in The Big One

This new publication is 142 pages packed with information about the eclipse. You’ll also find over 85 useful charts, maps and illustration.

It not only provides comprehensive details about the eclipse that’s coming up in a few days. It also reviews the previous eclipses that relate to this current one – including the big eclipse of 1918 and the solar eclipse in 1811 that was followed by massive earthquakes in the United States.

And The Big One covers dozens of specific markets and trading opportunities, based on the effects of the eclipse that’s just ahead.

Best of all, you’ll find a month-by-month forecast for the markets in the months following the August 21 solar eclipse, along with specific dates of eclipse activations.

Dow Target A Near Miss

Okay. We’ve just finished the first quarter of the trading year, and our Dow target wasn’t hit precisely.

But we came pretty darn close!

What Dow Target?

What does all this mean? What target am I talking about, anyway?

It all started with a request I got in late November from Timer Digest newsletter.

They regularly track market timers, including the trading signals that we publish in FinancialCyclesWeekly.

And, as I noted in a blog post a few months ago, they wanted an overall forecast for 2017.

Their request was for a specific Dow target for the end of March, for the end of June, and for the end of the year on December 31st..

So here’s what I came up with.

I was looking for a bullish quarter for stocks.

That certainly has proven to be the case.

But I was trying to figure this out in late November, remember.

At that time (November 28) the Dow Jones Industrial Average stood at 19097.90.

So I did some back-testing.

I looked at cycles of the true lunar node.

I assessed upcoming astrological events.

I took a particular look at upcoming solar eclipse patterns.

Not Just Trump

While many of colleagues and fellow forecasters focused on the election of Donald Trump, I didn’t give it much attention.

Trump's New York Battle
Donald Trump’s billionaire status translated into Wall Street enthusiasm after the election.

At that time, of course, a Trump Rally was already underway.

The Dow had already climbed nearly 5 percent since the presidential election. And it was a pretty good bet it would continue into the new year.

At least until after the presidential inauguration on January 20.

But again, I wasn’t giving that factor much attention as I calculated my Dow target.

I was looking at the astrology instead – that’s mainly what astro-traders do!

So What Exactly Was The Dow Target?

As I’ve reported here before, my target for the end of March, 2017 was 20605.00.

Dow Target March 2017
Our Dow Target for the end of March 2017 was very close to the actual closing price on March 31.

And, as I noted shortly after the forecast made it into print in Timer Digest, I found myself “wondering if perhaps I didn’t stick my neck out a little too far with this forecast.”

As it turned out, though, my Dow target was a little too conservative.

My projection was for 20606.00. The Dow finished up at the end of March at 20663.22.

My Dow target was off by 0.28%.

We’ll see how things turn out for the rest of the year.

Crude Oil Plunge Continues

Crude Oil prices continued their sharp decline today.

When I last checked, crude oil was trading at $48.43 a barrel. That’s a day-to-day decline of about 1.72% – on top of the sharp pullback the commodity has seen during the past couple of trading sessions.

Crude Oil Down
Crude Oil dropped by more than 9 percent on March 8 and 9 to close below $50 a barrel.

The price decline has created some consternation for active crude oil traders. That’s been especially true, of course, for those with big long positions.

Distress Among Crude Oil Traders

I had an opportunity to get some first-hand feedback on this surprising market during the course of the trading day yesterday.

Crude Oil Price Drop VideoAnd, as I summarized in a brief YouTube video, one of the dominant reactions is surprise.

Surprise that the price decline is happening at all.

Surprise that it’s happening so quickly.

And surprise at the ripple effect it’s been having, in ancillary sectors like exploration equipment and oil pipelines.

Of course surprise is one of the big emotional components that can drive important action in the markets. But even so, I’m not so sure that it’s fully justified in this case.

Solar Eclipse Market Forecast

At least the drop in oil prices shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone who read our new e-book, Courage and Clarity in a Time of Turmoil, which was published last month.

This comprehensive 135-page publication covers a lot of territory. It includes a detailed analysis of eclipse activation dates and the resulting anticipated market trends through next October.

It also features a specific forecast for Crude Oil during the months ahead.

We based that forecast on the eclipse activation of the NYMEX Crude Oil horoscope, using the 90-degree dial as a frame of reference.

The NYMEX Crude 90-Degree Dial

NYMEX Crude Oil Feb17 Eclipse
February 2017 solar eclipse activation of the NYMEX Crude Oil horoscope.

The 90-degree dial is simply a representation of the traditional horoscope that allows us to see fourth-harmonic and eighth-harmonic alignments more clearly.

In this case we’re using the NYMEX Crude First-Trade chart, and have turned the red pointer to the position of the February solar eclipse.

That pointer triggers the Mecury/Saturn and Hades/Kronos midpoints in the chart, providing us with a clear signal that a pull-back in oil is in the works.

 

 

Sweden? You’re Kidding!

The “fake news” is about terrorist attacks in Sweden.

It’s getting lots of attention.

It’s bouncing around FaceBook.

It’s on other social media.

It’s on alt-right talk shows.

It’s even been mocked.

You’ll see pundits making fun of it.

In the New York Times. 

In the Washington Post.

And on late-night TV.

But strangely, it may not be all fake.

What’s Really Happening In Sweden?

This Scandinavian country’s history is fascinating.

It relates strongly to the current solar eclipse.

That eclipse is just around the corner.

It’s on February 26.

But its history goes back to 1512.

The whole story is a little complicated.

You might get bogged down in the details.

But it sets the stage for what’s happening now.

Courage Required At This Solar Eclipse

Courage.

That’s what’s needed now, perhaps more than anything else.

Courage at a personal level and in our social interactions.

But not just courage in the sense of “sticking up for myself” in the face of opposition.

If we add some clarity to our courage, it gets better. We are likely to discover that the essence of being courageous right now lies in “sticking up for US” instead.

It’s not about defending ego-driven beliefs.

It’s not about “us versus them.” It’s “us plus us.”

The Courage To Stick Up For Us

Sticking up for us is about recognizing we’re all in this together.

It doesn’t matter what our differences seem to be.

They may be social or economic.

Cultural, religious or racial.

We’re here to help each other out, in whatever way we can.

Doing that takes real courageousness.

it’s courage in the literal sense – an opening of the heart.

It’s a willingness to trust ourselves, and to trust each other.

A Time of Turmoil

Courage is especially important now.

Right now we’re in the midst of a time of turmoil.

There’s increasing emphasis being placed on what separates us.

The focus is on what pulls us apart and turns us into enemies.

Social media, political pundits and the popular press are selling fear.

They know that seeing your neighbors as a threat can make you do irrational things.

Crazy stuff like supporting questionable political candidates. Or buying stuff you don’t really want or need.

The fact is, we’re all susceptible to that kind of demagoguery.

Unless, of course, we choose to respond to fear with love.

With opening our hearts. With embracing our need to courageous enough to stick up for us.

Courage At A Solar Eclipse

The big solar eclipse coming up on February 26 is likely to add fuel to the fire.

It’s likely to add extra tension and extra stress to an already chaotic time.

But if we’re prepared for the eclipse, if we’re prepared with courage and clarity, it can offer us an opportunity for life-changing positive transformation.

Courage Clarity Time Turmoil E-Book
