Mercurial May in the Markets; April in Review

April in review: April’s bearish planetary aspects resulted in roughly a 7% decline in the Nasdaq and 4.5% decline in the S & P. The technology sector made the biggest downturn. Individual tech and bio-tech stocks were the hardest hit compared to the overall indices. Expectations are for the technology sector, (ruled by Uranus), to lead the way lower in the overall market during the Spring/Summer season.

The decline began on April 3rd and culminated on the April 15 total lunar eclipse as expected and forecast in my daily and weekly updates. The great “cardinal cross,” the very rare planetary configuration with Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto all at 13 degrees in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn definitely had a strong effect in the mundane world, exacerbated the tensions in the Ukraine, brought extreme weather conditions, and other calamities. Since the stock markets’ decline occurred ahead of the configuration during the week of April 21st, and culminated on the total lunar eclipse at the correct planetary price level and support level for the “cardinal cross” (See planetary price chart for June NQ, Nasdaq 100 index futures), this was a set up for a rebound after April 15th. Fortunately, the saving grace during the month of April or the P.P.T. (plunge protection team), lol, were positive trines involving Venus in Pisces, Jupiter in Cancer, and Saturn in Scorpio.

There is another “energy shift” now in May since Venus entered Aries on Friday, May 2nd. This points to another strong confrontation between opposing forces in the world, as Venus in Aries forms an opposition to Mars in Libra on May 11th. The configuration during the period from May 11th – 18th, is very stressful and is another “cardinal cross” like the one that occurred during the week of April 21st. The only difference is that it occurs during about a one week time frame with the faster moving Venus leading the way. Venus will oppose Mars, square Pluto, conjunct Uranus, and square Jupiter from on May 11th – 18th. The peak of this configuration will probably be on the Full Moon and Venus/Pluto square on May 14th or on May 15th on the Venus/Uranus conjunction. Watch these dates carefully.

This is another very significant period in the mundane world when confrontations of a very serious nature may take place, i.e. military escalations, and when the financial markets can get seriously rocked once again with a spike in volatility.

Here is the link for the “Planetary price chart of the month” for the June NQ futures (Nasdaq 100 futures), defining accurate planetary support and resistance. As you can clearly see from this chart, the April 15th low at 3405 at the Mars/Uranus planetary support level is key moving forward this Spring season. A break below 3434 – 3405 would trigger more selling by the hedge funds, a run to the hills, and points to the beginning of a greater correction in the overall market. https://www.astroadvisor.com/astro-trading/planetary-price-chart-of-the-month-june-nq-nasdaq-100/

Wishing you the very best of trading success in the month of May!

The Next Stock and Commodity Market Turn Dates Ahead: Week of April 28th

For week of April 28th: The advance in equities from the bottom on the Total Lunar Eclipse on April 15th, culminated on last week’s “cardinal cross” then a top completed and turn back down began again on Friday. Key planetary resistance for the E-Mini S & P is at 1868 – 1876 and support is now at 1840 – 1832 this week.  A break down below 1832 is needed to show more weakness again in the daily time frame.

If the E-Mini remains weak on Monday and continues to decline into the Solar Eclipse, this would be another set up for a rebound again on Tuesday. However, a rebound may be short lived during the week. It’s going to choppy at times especially on the big range days on Wednesday’s fomc announcement and when non-farms payrolls is released before the open at 05:30AM, pacific on Friday.

My outlook and expectation is for a significant correction in the stock indices during this Spring season. Another very stressful planetary configuration, same as the one last week except in the exactness of the orb between the planets, will occur once again during the period from May 10th – 18th. Good trading to you!

Commentary on Gold:  June Gold completed a bottom at 1272 – 1268 planetary support indicated in last Thursday’s daily report. A rebound back up began again on Thursday. Gold will be in a strong position to advance if price remains above 1299 – 1292 this week. On the upside, 1328 – 1335 planetary resistance is likely to remain strong if it is tested this week.

If Gold advances into the Solar Eclipse, this is likely to time another short term move back down on Tuesday.  If this is the case, it will probably be short lived. It’s going to be a very wild ride on Wednesday and Friday with strong price swings in both directions. Good trading to you!

The Next Stock and Commodity Market Turn Dates Ahead: Week of March 24th

For week of  March 24th: Mercury conjuncts Neptune over the weekend on Saturday the 22nd. This leads to Mercury trine Jupiter and sextile Pluto on Wednesday and Thursday. This week’s key reversal days or turning points are likely to be on Monday and Wednesday. Good trading to you!

Commentary on Gold: April Gold pulled back last week to complete a low on the Spring Equinox on Thursday. A minor rebound back up began again on Thursday’s Equinox off the 1321 level. Key planetary resistance now at 1342 – 1346 this week. A break out above 1346 is still needed to show more strength for a continuation to higher planetary price targets this week.

The Next Stock and Commodity Market Turn Dates Ahead: Week of March 17th

For week of  March 17th: On Monday, Mercury changes signs and enters Pisces. On Tuesday, Venus sextiles Uranus. On Wednesday, the fomc makes another announcement. The Spring Equinox is on Thursday when the Sun enters Aries at 09:57AM, pacific. The most important key turn date of the week is on Thursday’s Equinox, the day after the fomc announcement. This week’s key reversal days or turning points in all markets are likely to be on Tuesday and Thursday.

Also see previous post and planetary price chart for S & P weekly. Another turn down has begun again off this longer term planetary resistance area at 1880 – 1990. This is probably just the beginning of something big as both Mars and Saturn retrograde at the same time leading to the eclipse cycle and cardinal cross in the month April. Stay tuned.  Good trading to you!

Commentary on Gold: The bull trend in Gold continues since I called the bottom in December, (See Golden opportunity planetary price chart of the month for Gold in December’s post), https://www.astroadvisor.com/astro-trading/golden-opportunity-planetary-price-chart-for-feb-gold . Key planetary support now at 1364 – 1362 for the strength to continue. Next near term upside planetary price target at approximately the 1430 – 1450 range. Thursday’s key turn date of the week should have a significant impact on Gold. Good trading to you!

The Next Stock and Commodity Market Turn Dates Ahead: Week of March 10th

For week of  March 10th: Last Monday’s Mars and Saturn retrograde timed a big one day reversal, before a snapback rally on Tuesday and last week. The S & P is now testing important longer term planetary resistance for the Uranus/Pluto cycle at 1880 – 1900. A very significant correction is likely to come this Spring as long as resistance continues to hold at the 1880 – 1900 level moving forward.

On Monday evening, Mercury completes a square to Saturn. On Thursday, the Sun trines Saturn and Mercury trines Mars on Friday. This week’s key reversal days or turning points in all markets are likely to be on Tuesday and Friday. Good trading to you!

Commentary on Gold: April Gold has been unable to break through the 1355.50 planetary resistance level indicated in last week’s Daily Gold market timing report, https://www.astroadvisor.com/astrology-trading-services/daily-gold-astro-timer. This is key resistance this week. Key planetary support is now at 1328 – 1326 this week. A break below 1326 is needed to show more weakness again.
