Astro-Trading the S&P

While many trading tools and strategies can improve our chances of success with the S&P, applying astrological insights to the market gives us a unique perspective-- and the proven results that only come with the astro-trading advantage.  

 

In my own experience as a trader and researcher, and in my work as a teacher and astro-trading coach, I've found that there are three basic approaches which can help us identify potentially profitable astro-trading opportunities in the S&P: 

 

1. Examining the impact of single planets on trends and reversal points. 

2. Reviewing planetary combinations to develop effective hypotheses for back-testing and active trading. 

3. Discovering connections between planetary price lines and key levels of support and resistance in trading. 

 

Although each approach has its own particular nuances and variations, a brief review will help illustrate their value for astro-traders in identifying high-value trading opportunities. 

 

Single Planet Influences 

 

The planet Neptune recently entered Pisces, where it will continue to make a slow passage through this zodiac sign until 2025. Because Neptune moves so slowly, taking about 171 years to complete a single trip through the full span of the zodiac, we face real restrictions when we try to back-test its influence on the markets. Even so, we recently witnessed a quick visit of Neptune to Pisces between April 4 and August 4, 2011, giving us a chance to observe its potential correspondences with market trends.

The S&P had been in an aggressive uptrend prior to this move by Neptune, but it didn't take long for a shift in market dynamics. The S&P declined into mid-April, rallied into early May, and sold off into late June. This was followed by a double-top in July and a steep decline into August 9. Overall the S&P lost about 10 percent of its value during Neptune's stay in Pisces in 2011, as illustrated by this astro-trading chart from FinancialCyclesWeekly.com. 

 

Planetary Combinations 

 

When we examine the interactions of pairs of planets, we can often gain surprising insights into market dynamics. During 2011 the S&P responded particularly strongly to eighth-harmonic interactions of Mars and Jupiter. Their significance for astro-trading the S&P was quite remarkable.

The trading high for the year came on May 2, with a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in effect. There was a 45º angle between the two planets on July 22, marking an important trading top. And on October 4 the S&P hit its low for the year, with Mars and Jupiter in a 90º alignment. 

 

Planetary Price Lines 

 

The ability to translate planetary positions and relationships into planetary price lines on a market chart gives us one of the most powerful tools of astro-trading. Planetary price lines provide astrologically-based levels of support and resistance that can be combined with conventional technical indicators to refine trading strategies.  

 

The theory and mathematics behind planetary price lines are detailed in the books The Universal Clock, available from P.A.S. Inc., and inGann Secrets Revealed, available from Amazon.com. Detailed instructions on the practical application of planetary price lines in trading are in the DVD program Profitable Trading with Planetary Timing, available from HarmonicResearchAssociates.com.  

 

Trading the S&P provides an endless stream of opportunities for profits-- and an endless supply of sobering reminders that the market always knows more than we do. But with the astro-trading advantage, we can learn the hidden lessons of the market and open the door to more consistent profits!
