A Big Bounce in the Markets

In this week’s issue of the FinancialCyclesWeekly.com newsletter, I noted that there was a 57% likelihood of rising prices in the stock market today.

Wow, was that ever on target!

Stock prices surged upward today after the news broke that key central banks had moved to prevent a collapse of the euro, postponing the day of reckoning with the European debt crisis yet again.

Even so, this is a trading phase that can also just as easily produce some price pull-backs, thanks to the effect of retrograde Mercury combining with a solar eclipse.

That was one of the things we focused on during Tuesday’s special webinar for our Gold-Plus Elite members, as we took an in-depth look at the astro-trading potential that lies ahead of us in December.

If you missed attending that session live, you can still get a video recording of it, along with free bonus copies of the PowerPoint slides for that event and the new eclipse report on “The Solar Eclipse of November 2011: Its Impact on the Markets” by clicking here.

 

A 15% ROI – What’s the Catch?

As I was preparing the new monograph on “The Solar Eclipse of November, 2011: Its Impact on the Markets” I spent a little time reviewing the trading results based on the previous eclipse report in our ongoing series.

That’s when I noticed the success of one particular trade.

It was DGSE Companies Inc. (NASDAQ – DGSE), a stock that had been identified as a trading candidate specifically because of the anticipated impact of a solar eclipse.

The trade in DGSE brought in a return of 14.65% – that’s a decent rate, I’d say, especially when you compare it to money tucked away in a savings account or some other “safe” investment.

It’s better than a lot of mutual funds do, too.

But there was just one catch. That market-beating ROI of just under 15% wasn’t a long-range figure– it was based instead on an up-close and personal application of a few basic astro-trading principles.

The net result was that the trade in DGSE brought in this solid return in just 10 trading days!

Of course results like that aren’t guaranteed– they certainly shouldn’t be considered typical!

But the great thing about successful astro-trading is that you don’t have to be right all the time. Instead, you learn to observe, to absorb, and to work with the important planetary factors that give you the biggest bang for your buck. Then just pick the high-performance trading opportunities that are in tune with the cosmic cycles.

That’s pretty much what happens with the publication of each new Eclipse Report.

We identify specific trades based on the eclipse, and review specific trading strategies for those stocks.

After that, it’s all about taking timely action in the markets.

And, from time to time, it’s about getting a 14.65 rate of return in just 10 trading days–

Like with the solar eclipse right now, for example!

 

Reviewing the Impact of the Coming Solar Eclipse

My new monograph on “The Solar Eclipse of November 2011: Its Impact on the Markets” is now in the final editing stages, and is scheduled for publication late in the day on Monday, November 21.

(It’s available for pre-order at a pre-publication discount price through Monday as well.)

With this big eclipse on the way, Michael Yorba and I focused almost exclusively on that important event during our weekly radio discussion yesterday.

Because Michael’s scheduled guest for the final segment of the show had to cancel his appearance since he was a part of the evacuation in Reno, Nevada on Friday, Michael asked me to fill in during for an additional segment. That gave us an opportunity to go into more depth on the upcoming eclipse and effects we can expect to see in the markets.

Mars & Jupiter Line Up to Impact the Equities Markets

I had another great conversation with Michael Yorba on his radio show this afternoon– Michael is an excellent interviewer, and our times together always help bring clarity to the astro-trading strategies that I’m so eager to share with his listeners and our members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com.

We talked about the current market trends, of course, but also got into some specifics about next week’s Mars/Jupiter trine.

The interesting thing about this particular alignment is that the traditional symbolism associated with these two planets suggests a positive outcome, but it’s really a bearish signal for equities. That’s because the positive energy can create a short-term trading top, setting things up for a move to the downside.

That’s why I’m looking for the biggest downward push to come the day after the trine (Thursday) instead of on the date of the aspect itself (Wednesday).

In a nutshell, then, with the possibility of the upcoming week starting with a slightly bullish bias, we’re still likely to see an influx of bearish energy coming in to moderate things somewhat (probably with a less enthusiastic move to the upside), and then an effort to push prices higher before the much stronger negative impact of the Mars/Jupiter trine kicks in to pull prices down more sharply.

Meaningful Beauty

Since the change back to Standard Time a couple of days ago, there have been some subtle shifts in the daily routine.

Sunset comes earlier in the evening, which is why Patty, Amrita and I all found ourselves spontaneously gathering at the same location– the condo’s main balcony overlooking the mouth of the river, where it flows into the Gulf of Mexico.

Sunsets are always wonderful to watch, and as the Sun has moved gradually southward during the past few months, our views of them have become more and more spectacular. So when the three of us got together earlier this evening we were far from disappointed.

A few minutes after we had watched the Sun drop below the water on the western horizon, Patty spotted the Moon rising in the eastern sky.

“Is it full?” she wanted to know.

“Not quite,” I told her. “We’ve got a couple more days. It won’t be completely full until November 10th.”

“It’s really beautiful,” she said. Then she gasped. “What’s that just below the Moon in the sky?”

I looked, and did some quick mental calculations. . . the setting Sun’s in Scorpio, so the Moon would be in late Aries. . . . “That would be Jupiter,” I said.

“Really?” Patty said. “It’s so big and bright! When I first saw it, I thought I was looking at an airplane. But then I realized that it wasn’t moving. So it’s really a planet?”

I nodded, and looked back toward the western sky, where the Sun’s glow was still displaying a light show of pinks and oranges. There was another planet there, shining bright and beautiful. “And that,” I pointed out, “is Venus.”

Patty was clearly thrilled. “That’s what you need to tell people about astrology,” she said. “We see all these beautiful things in the sky, and they’re not only fabulous to look at, but they all have meaning, too. That’s what I think you should be explaining to people.”

“That’s what I try to do,” I said. But sometimes, I thought, just taking some time to watch and absorb the beauty is more than enough!

The Scratch & Dent Sale is Almost Ready

It looks like everything is ready at last for our Scratch & Dent sale on the slightly dinged-up copies of the BASIC STOCK MARKET ASTROLOGY HOME STUDY COURSE.

With just 23 copies available, I’m pretty sure they aren’t going to last long once the sale opens up– and I’ve already gotten some phone calls from people wanted to be put on the waiting list for when they go on sale.

I think we’ll be able to open up the sale sometime late tomorrow afternoon.

If you’d like to be on the Early Bird List for advance notification as soon as the time is set, send me your name & email on this form:

Big Market Moves with the Uranus/Hades Square

I’m still getting lots of questions about the series of Uranus/Hades waning squares (including the one last week and the one coming up in December) and their potential impact on the markets, the economy, and social issues as well.

The action in all those arenas is typically pretty intense after the waning square between the two planets, and because Uranus is involved there’s a high level of uncertainty and unpredictability associated with that astrological line-up.

With the equities markets, the initial response is usually pretty bullish, but a wave of selling soon sets in, bringing prices lower after about a week and ultimately keeping them low about 30 days after the planetary aspect occurs.

That explains why the market action had such a strong upside focus last week, and also why we saw a big price pull-back on October 31 and November 1.

Some notes and charts derived from that research are included in the new monograph on “Uranus & Hades: Obscene Corruption & Speculative Surprises,” which is available as an instant download at the Harmonic Research Associates website. I suggest taking a look at it if you’re interested in more details on the historic patterns that are playing out before our eyes right now.

By the way, that monograph is also currently available as a free bonus with purchase of the MP4 video recording of last week’s webinar on the astro-trading dynamics in November. Lots of good information there, including a specific forecast of yesterday’s reaction rally in stocks.

You can also find that offer at Harmonic Research Associates. It’s available through November 6.
