Every Once In A While I Bat 1000

In last week’s newsletter, the one for January 24, 2010, I said that it “seems highly unlikely that we will see anything other than a net loss for equities in the week ahead,” and that in fact turned out to be the case for all the major market averages.

On Monday, when I had called for a “bullish trading day,” the S+P was up by 0.46%. On Tuesday, with my forecast for “a fairly strong resumption of bearishness,’ the average dropped by 0.42%.

On Wednesday I was looking for an up day with a breather from Tuesday’s trading negativity due to “a little bit of moderation in the markets, with the Venus/Mars opposition and the waning heliocentric Mars/Poseidon square bringing some positive encouragement to the trading floor.” That day, in keeping with my forecast, the S+P was up 0.49%.

My forecast for Thursday was for more selling pressure, with restrictive astrological factors that “should be powerful enough to bring some serious moderation in any optimism that remains in the markets, at least for the time being.” Right in line with that prediction, the S+P lost 1.18% for the day.

On Friday, finally, we saw another big loss, with the S+P 500 dropping 0.98% for the day to finish up the week with an overall 1.64% loss. I had noted in my forecast that “The decay in bullishness should be more than evident on Friday,” with an “extremely bearish spin to the close of the trading week.”

In short, my forecast in last week’s letter was extremely accurate, not only for the week as a whole but also for each individual trading day.

While I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always bat 1000 with my forecasts, I certainly do enjoy seeing that kind of performance. Of course all the usual caveats apply about even such spot-on past performance not guaranteeing future results, but I think this is a good example of the extra edge that astro-traders can have when they add accurate astrological insights to their market analysis.


The Lasting Power of Eclipses

“I understand that eclipses are important in financial astrology, but with just a few eclipses happening each year, why should make such a big deal about them?”

That’s a question I’ve been asked before, and I’ve gotten it again recently with the publication of my new monograph on “The Solar Eclipse of January 2010: Its Impact on the Markets”.

This annular eclipse is coming up on January 15, but why should anybody care about it after that date?

The fact is, solar eclipses do have a big potential impact on market behavior and on the headlines we read in the newspapers. That’s especially true in the days nearest the date of the eclipse itself. But solar eclipses also have a lot of influence on other events as well, including events that take place months or even years after the date of the solar eclipse.

There are certainly major geomagnetic forces at work when we get a solar eclipse, but the exact mechanism of the influence that comes from a solar eclipse is still something of a mystery. So the real issue is not so much one of knowing exactly how eclipses work to have such an important impact, but instead one of figuring out what sort of events are the most likely to occur following the eclipse, and then determining the specific dates that bring the strongest potentials for activation of the energy that has coalesced around the time of the eclipse.

That’s where my new monograph on “The Solar Eclipse of January 2010: Its Impact on the Markets” comes in to play.

This new report definitely includes some clear forecasting sections, but the forecasts it features go far beyond the eclipse time itself on January 15, 2010. And there’s a lot more included that will make this a valuable document for many months to come, including:

* A complete analysis of eclipse charts and eclipse paths

* Studies of 11 historic eclipses that specifically relate to the January 15 eclipse

* More than 150 specific dates when paricular eclipse activations can occur

* In-depth analysis of the six most important times when the eclipse energy culminates

* 60 astrological charts, market charts, and illustrations

* A detailed market forecast inlduing profitable trading strategies

* A review of the amazing track record of eclipse-based astro-trading

* A detailed look at the impact of the solar eclipse on the U.S. dollar

* The specific geographic locations most strongly impacted by the January 15 solar eclipse

* Six potentially profitable stocks to consider trading just after this eclipse for short-term profit

* A review of Gold and an in-depth consideration of one specific commodity that will be of maximum interest to traders during the six-month period following the eclipse

* A month-by-month projection of the eclipse’s effects on the market

* And much, much more!

I know that sounds like a lot, and it is. In fact, this eclipse report is 93 pages long, so there’s plenty of information to absorb and put to work to make your own trading more financially successful.
