Today I got an excellent email from Matt, who asked:
“What effect did the Eclipse have on any market? You are not too accurate in your analysis. What percentage do you think you really are in forecasting any market?”
His question Illustrates one of the biggest misconceptions about eclipses– the notion that we should be able to see their impact as the eclipses take place.
Actually, the key thing to understand about eclipses is that their effects are NOT limited to the date of the eclipse itself; this event sets up a resonant field which persists in it influence for at least 6 months, sometimes longer, and we look for specific triggers during that time frame as keys to market turning points.
Overall, this latest solar eclipse is expected to have an essentially bullish effect, but its impact is currently skewed a bit by the Mercury cycle, so the short-term market trends can be very misleading.
You’ll find more details & specific month-by-month forecasts in the new report on “The Solar Eclipse of November 2011: Its Impact on the Markets” .
