Mercury Neptune Astro-Trading

A Mercury Neptune conjunction is just ahead.

It’s not an extremely rare planetary alignment, but it’s still worth watching.

And it’s coming up again in just a few days, on Friday, April 3rd.

Mercury Neptune & S&P

If this Mercury Neptune is true to form, it’s likely to signal a big move upward in stock prices.

That’s why this particular Mercury Neptune set-up was one of the three big astrological events I talked about this morning.

I was the featured guest earlier today on Larry Pesavento’s show on TFNN – Trade What You See.

When we got together on the air, this upcoming planetary event was a big focus.

The Mercury Neptune Meeting Was Just One Topic

Larry and I discussed the likely market impact of the upcoming Mercury Neptune event, of course.

But we talked about the Cupido retrograde station on Thursday, the Jupiter Pluto conjunction on Saturday, the impact of the coronavirus, and more.

You can see the whole interview here:

Intel – A Promising Copycat?

The week-long Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas finished up over the weekend.

Even so, there’s some remaining buzz about the event’s keynote presentation by Brian Krzanich. He’s the CEO of chipmaker Intel Corporation (NASDAQ – INTC).

You can watch the full hour-long presentation by the Intel CEO HERE.

Inside The Intel Bag of Tricks

During his time in the limelight on the CES 2015 stage, Krzanich boasted that Intel will be a global leader in “The Next Consumer Technology Wave” during 2015. He promised big breakthroughs from the company in “Computing Unleashed,” “Intelligence Everywhere,” and “The Wearable Revolution”.

His presentation featured RealSense camera technology, coming advances in 3-D printing, robotics, and games with drones.

And there was the Nixie wearable flying camera.

And the Curie computing module, a multi-purpose device the size of a shirt button. Intel hopes it will be integrated into a variety of wearable applications by the end of this year.

Krzanich closed with a pledge. His company will commit $300 million to promoting workplace diversity by hiring and promoting more women and minorities.

Visionary Innovation or Wishful Thinking?

It was certainly entertaining. But it left many industry pundits shrugging their shoulders. Krzanich was mainly talking about improvements in existing technology instead of breakthrough innovations.

Even so, INTC stock was up 1.1% for the week, with Intel advancing while the broader market lost ground.

Intel Jupiter Apollon Chart
Intel stock has seen some significant upward price moves following fifteenth-harmonic alignments of Jupiter and Apollon. The most recent one was in October; the next one is coming up on January 29.

All this comes just before the company’s next earnings announcement on Thursday, January 15, which we’ll be watching closely to see how the market responds.

Intel Earnings Horoscope
Earnings Announcement times are always significant occasions for stock traders, since they focus attention on the underlying company’s performance and become a basis for forecasting future price movements in the stock. INTC has lagged the previous year’s performance in two of its five most recent quarters, but analysts are expecting positive news this week when the numbers come out for the closing quarter of 2014. Although some of the analysts may be overly optimistic, the astrology for Thursday’s announcement by Intel supports the notion of a positive report, with the transiting Mercury/Venus conjunction aligned with the INTC First-Trade Sun and the transiting Uranus/Pluto waxing square creating a powerful T-square pattern with the INTC First-Trade Mars.

2014 was a strong year overall for Intel. So even a positive report could be considered a disappointment, given the strange logic of Wall Street.

But the astrological factors at work seem favorable, both at the time of the earnings report and for some time afterwards.

So watch Intel. You can read more about the stock in the latest issue of FinancialCyclesWeekly.com newsletter.

INTC may be shaping up as a potential candidate for intermediate-term investment.

So check it out.

Even if the company’s push into “The Next Wave” is more copycat behavior than genuine creativity.

Mars Stations and Stock Market Trading

“Does this stuff really work?”

That’s a question I get a lot from people who haven’t experienced the astro-trading advantage for themselves.

The answer, of course, is Absolutely YES!

But that response doesn’t really tell us much, mainly because the question itself is so limited.

A far better question would be “HOW does this stuff work?” or “What kinds of effects do the planets actually have on the markets?”

The Mars direct station coming up next week is a case in point.

Mars stations are definitely market accelerators, and sometimes they trigger trend reversals. But each Mars station brings its own unique characteristics to the circumstances surrounding stock market trading.

If you take a look at these trading charts for the S&P you’ll see what I mean:

Stock Market Trading - Mars Stations 2007 and 2008
Prices fell in the stock market trading that took place while Mars was retrograde in late 2007 and early 2008. A brief bounce immediately after the Mars direct station on January 30, 2008 was followed with price congestion and a fresh price decline.

 

Mars Stations and S&P 2009-2010
The Mars stations in late 2009 and early 2010 defined a profitable period in stock market trading, with the direct station on March 10, 2010 signaling a break above previous resistance.
Mars station Impact on the S&P in 2012
A rising price trend in stock market trading during much of the time while Mars was retrograde in 2012 culminated with a pull-back just prior to the direct station on April 13, which was following by trading congestion prior to a steep decline.
