Kronos Helps Push Stocks Lower

Kronos did its bit this week.

We had been looking to this transneptunian planet to amplify the impact of the Spring Equinox.

The equinox, of course, as we’ve often pointed out, is a key event in W. D. Gann’s reckoning. Over the years, it has proven quite reliable in signaling market turns.

As we approached this key date, we alerted our members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com to be cautious.

An End To The Trump Rally

And, as we pointed out in a recent post, Gann was certainly proven right earlier this week. Stock prices plunged, right on schedule.

It brought an abrupt end to the Trump Rally. But the plunge in prices didn’t stop with the equinox effect.

Kronos made sure of that!

We highlighted the Kronos potential in this week’s newsletter. It was published prior to the equinox, by the way.

Kronos FCW 3-19-17

Kronos in the March 19 newsletter.

Here’s what we shared with our readers then:

As we move into the trading week just ahead, we not only have the key Gann signal of the equinox on March 20, but also a direct station by the transneptunian factor Kronos on March 23. This powerful outer planet phenomenon could reinforce the equinox impact, especially if we see a correction getting underway.

Kronos is associated with great heights, both literally and metaphorically. It’s the best of the best, the top of the skyscraper, and the person in charge. It’s also connected with trading tops. So when Kronos changes direction, we need to be alert for potential changes in market direction. too. While Kronos direct stations can often interrupt a rally with a brief period of declining prices or trading congestion, they don’t necessarily bring extreme bearishness.

In this case, however, the Kronos direct station may be especially disruptive. The station activates both the Aries/Mercury and Aries/Zeus midpoints. There are thus likely to be far-reaching communications that trigger wars or other hostilities, in spite of efforts by some leaders to mend fences and promote harmony and community (Jupiter/Cupido).

The Kronos trigger of the Chiron/Uranus midpoint is also significant. It suggests that while market disruption can be challenging, chaos can also offer potentially profitable opportunities to savvy astro-traders!

Kronos Effects In and Out of the Markets

The triggering of hostilities was evident, of course – not only in the streets of London, but also in the halls of Congress.

But for astro-traders, the Kronos station was even more interesting.

As this chart for the S&P 500 shows, stocks had been trying to push higher on Thursday. Following a mid-day sell-off, the index was still in positive territory for the day. A second price surge was underway, but trading was getting a little congested.

That’s when the Kronos station hit, about an hour and a half before the closing bell. It not only put an end to the renewed bullishness; it drove prices even lower. The index finished the day with a net loss, followed by another down day on Friday.

A Transneptunian Webinar

The timing of this planetary station couldn’t have been better.

Following Thursday’s market close, I had just enough time to grab a screen shot of the day’s trading action. I added it to my slides for a webinar that was starting an hour after the closing bell.

As it turned out, there were a total of 112 slides for this presentation. It was pretty massive!

The webinar provided detailed information about all eight transneptunian factors. It highlighted specific trading and market analysis strategies to enhance trading with transneptunian timing.

We also got great questions and comments from the webinar participants.

It all added up to an incredibly enriching advanced astro-trading training session.

We recorded the entire webinar session on “How You Can Win With Transneptunian Market Timing” – including the questions and answers at the end.

The video of the event is a full 110 minutes. It’s packed with detailed information, trading charts, and a whole lot more.

It also includes a give-away of a free 161-page trading publication (you get the download link along with the webinar recording).

If you’re interested in the power of the transneptunians in astro-trading – or even if you’re just looking for an extra edge in your market timing – I highly recommend that you check out this in-depth training.

 

Gann Gets The Equinox Right Again!

Gann got it right again.

As I’ve been reminding my students and our members here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, W. D. Gann identified the equinox as a particularly sensitive time for the markets.

We talked about it at length during our March 1 webinar for our Gold-Plus Elite members – they’re the group of astro-traders who get regular guidance about current trading strategies.

We meet for regular forecast webinars, and share a weekly conference call to discuss the specific stock picks and market timing for optimum trading results.

Staying Tuned In To Gann

I’ve been making sure that this group has been tuned in to the important Gann date.

Gann Equinox

W. D. Gann and the Equinox Featured in FinancialCyclesWeekly

We also ran a cover story in the FinancialCyclesWeekly newsletter on March 12. It focuses specifically on W. D. Gann and the importance of the upcoming equinox.

“Keep your powder dry!” we advised our readers.

“Our back-testing of the past 34 years of market history shows this equinox typically triggering a short-term pull-back or consolidation in the S&P, followed by an aggressive rally,” we noted. “This year, however, we may see a sharper decline in stock prices just after the equinox.”

The Equinox Results

The equinox was yesterday, on March 20.

And, just as we expected, the selling pressure in the market started then – right on schedule.

The sell-off accelerated today, just in case there was any question about the validity of Gann’s approach.

How much did it sell off?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 237.85 points, off 1.14% for the day.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index lost 29.45, for a decline today of 1.24%.

It was clearly a big enough drop to command attention. It also called the Trump Rally into question.

And with a Kronos station coming up later this week, there may be even more selling ahead.

Once again, we’re all reminded of just how important Gann and his innovative insights are for us in our astro-trading today!

Transneptunian Zodiac Connections

Transneptunian zodiac connections don’t get a lot of attention.

We use the transneptunian planets in our market forecasting work.

We turn to them as we uncover active planetary price lines in trading charts.

But transneptunian factors are rarely understood.

Even some highly-experienced professional astrologers don’t give them much recognition.

And almost nobody understands their connection to the signs of the zodiac.

What’s A Transnepstunian Planet, Anyway?

The transneptunian planets were postulated before they were discovered.

They were first theorized by the German astrologer Alfred Witte. It was just after World War I.

Witte was a brilliant astrologer and mathematician.

He intimately understood connections between planetary cycles and real-world events.

But Witte saw  something missing.

Some events happened without obvious astrological correlations.

That seemed especially true in war.

Hence Witte’s flash of inspiration.

Alfred Witte’s Big Idea

He concluded that there must be more planets orbiting the Sun.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune had companions.

They just hadn’t been discovered yet.

But these hypothetical planets were making their influence felt. They were triggering real events.

Their effects were mainly evident in combination with other planetary influences.

So Witte went to work. He calculated their apparent orbits. He added them to his horoscopes.

And they worked.

The transneptunian factors that Witte and his students theorized really helped explain events.

They helped in individual horoscopes. But they were really powerful in mundane charts. Those are horoscopes associated with nations and global events.

Transneptunians are potent factors in financial astrology.

And since Witte’s day – about 100 years later – we found Kuiper Belt objects.

They’re in the zone where Witte predicted we’d find the transneptunians.

The Transneptunian Zodiac Connection

But their connection to signs of the zodiac is obscure.

That’s why I was intrigued when one of my students asked me about that connection.

She’s an astro-trader, refining her approach to the markets.

Our regular telephone sessions review her progress.

And she asked the question.

“How do transneptunians relate to the signs of the zodiac?”

I decided to record my answer.

It took me 45 minutes. But it’s the most direct and concise discussion you’ll find anywhere.

That’s why I decided to make that recording available.

It’s been edited slightly. The audio quality has been cleaned up a little.

But in the audio, you’ll get the facts. You’ll hear details and nuances about transneptunian connects that aren’t available elsewhere.

And best of all, it’s available now as an instant MP3 download.

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.
