this revelation put him - in my mind - in with the numerologists and astrologists [do you know there is/was someone publishing market analysis based on astrology?]
Indeed there is. Raz can find almost anything. Old Norm is waiting for you to "tune in".
So put on your tin-foil hat and enjoy!




MARKET WATCH

(April 2014) DJIA Close: 16,323.06.

This monthís letter covers March 31 through May 4.

Aprilís major planetary events can be sorted into four windows.

1. A. 4/06--Uranus 90 U.S. Sun. This is a very negative cycle culmination for U.S. transportation, communications and economic vitality. There may be some sudden disruption of activities. A similar aspect in February 2014 coincided with record airline flight cancellations, disruptions in shipping and the mail. Watch for a major change in trend for U.S. Stocks, T-Bonds & U.S. Dollar.

B. 4/08--Jupiter 180 U.S. Part of Fortune. This is one of those too much of a good thing cycles for the U.S.. It relates to U.S. finances. There may be a push to spend more money or go further into debt. Watch for an important change in trend for U.S. Stocks, T-Bonds & U.S. Dollar.

2. A. 4/13--Jupiter 0 U.S. Sun. This is a very positive cycle for the U.S. transportation, communications and economic vitality. Watch for a major change in trend for U.S. Stocks, T-Bonds & U.S. Dollar.

B. 4/14--Neptune 90 U.S. Ascendant.--This is probably very positive on a short term basis, as the U.S. is deluded into thinking this is a good situation. But longer term, it may later be revealed to have been a major negative. This may involve a government scandal or cover-up involving the Executive Branch.

C. 4/14 AC--Pluto in Capricorn turns Retrograde. Pluto is the ruling planet for Cocoa, Hogs & Bonds. Capricorn is the ruling sign for Coffee. Watch for a major change in trend for Cocoa, Coffee, Hogs, Stocks & Bonds.

D. 4/14 AC--Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra. Libra is the ruling sign for Sugar & Wheat. The Moon is associated with Silver. But, possibly more important is that this Lunar Eclipse coincides within a few hours of Pluto Retrograde. My last recollection of a Lunar Eclipse near an outer planet station point was on June 4, 2012, when there was a Lunar Eclipse within a few hours of Neptune Retrograde, which turned out to be the low day of the year for the Stock Market. The point is that a Lunar Eclipse near an outer planet station point is like adding an extra charge to a keg of dynamite and may bring a change in trend for many markets. There is a good chance that 4/14-15 will be the most powerful change in trend window of the month. Given that this occurs just ahead of the April 20-21 Grand Cardinal Cross and that Pluto is a factor in that configuration, this could trigger the Grand Cross with a domino type effect. A Lunar Eclipse coinciding with a Pluto station point is also a high probability window for seismic activity and natural disasters.

3. A. 4/20--Jupiter in Cancer 90 Uranus in Aries--This is the 90 degree phase of the Jupiter--Uranus cycle, which has a good correlation with the 41 month business cycle. The 90 degree phase is usually a negative influence and therefore has the potential to bring a global economic slowing or recession. Jupiter is the ruling planet for Oats. Cancer is the ruling sign for Silver. Uranus is the ruling planet for Copper. Aries is the ruling sign for Iron & Steel. This is also the first leg of the Grand Cardinal Cross, for which please see the enclosed article. Watch for an important change in trend for these markets at that time.

B. 4/20--Jupiter in Cancer 180 Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter is the ruling planet for Sagittarius and Oats. Cancer is the ruling sign for Silver, Food & Housing. Pluto is the ruling planet for Scorpio, Cocoa, Hogs & Bonds. Capricorn is the ruling sign for Coffee. These two planets are forming a 180 degree opposition angle or aspect which is considered a negative angle. The Jupiter factor with this aspect implies an over-supply or over-expansion, or too much of a good thing. This is the second leg of the Grand Cardinal Cross.

C. 4/21--Uranus in Aries 90 to Pluto in Capricorn. Uranus is the ruling planet for Copper, Computers, Electronics & Technology. Aries has to do with Iron & Steel. Pluto is the ruling planet for Cocoa, Hogs & Bonds. Therefore, watch for a possible problem from a major bank or sovereign debt. Capricorn is the ruling sign for Coffee. Politically, Uranus in Aries can bring revolution or war. When combined with Pluto, this could bring terrorist attacks, mass death and destruction, and major explosions. Seismically, this could coincide with major earthquakes or volcanoes. This is the third leg of the Grand Cardinal Cross.

4. A. 4/29--New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus--The Sun is the ruling body for Corn, Gold and OJ. Taurus is the ruling sign for Cattle and Cotton. Watch for an important change in trend for Cattle, Corn, Cotton, Gold, OJ & Stocks.

B. Jupiter 90 U.S. Saturn. This is a negative cycle for U.S. Debt, Bonds and U.S. Speculative Markets.

C. 4/30--Jupiter Contra-Parallel U.S. Part of Fortune. This is one of those too much of a good thing cycles for the U.S.. It relates to U.S. finances. The may be a push to spend more money or go further into debt. Watch for an important change in trend for U.S. Stocks, T-Bonds & U.S. Dollar.

D. 5/02--Helio Mars enters Scorpio. Scorpio is the ruling sign for Cocoa, Hogs & Bonds. Please see the Martian Markets of the Month New section for more details.

E. 5/03--Jupiter Parallel U.S. Sun. This is a very positive cycle for the U.S. transportation, communications, and economic vitality. Watch for a major change in trend for U.S. Stocks, T-Bonds & U.S. Dollar.
