Alibaba (Nasdaq:BABA)

In early October I offered up a preliminary look at internet commerce giant Alibaba. At that time I postulated that Pluto inverse quantum price lines (CS=1/8) would be a good tool to use.

Now that I have more price data to work with, I have refined this notion and I now advise that Neptune quantum lines are the ones to use. On the following chart I have sketched in the Neptune lines. I have indicated the price levels where some of these  lines reside. On your price charts at home you can use a ruler and a pencil to extend these lines several months forward. I have also overlaid Mars quantum lines.

If you are using Market Analyst software, I will be happy to email you the template workbook for this Alibaba chart complete with harmonics so you don’t have to waste time calculating harmonics.

Cycles of Venus

To the ancient Babylonians, the planet Venus was called Ishtar – the Goddess of War. Venus was further revered by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and even the Mayan civilization who were said to have launched attacks on their enemies only at certain times of the Venus cycle.

The Venus cycle is 584 days in length as viewed from our geocentric position here on Earth. A typical Venus cycle starts at what is called Inferior Conjunction – when Venus is between Earth and the Sun as the following diagram illustrates.

Venus Inferior

After Inferior Conjunction, Venus is then visible in the morning eastern sky as the Morning Star for 263 days. For any of you familiar with the rituals of the Freemasons, you will recognize this reference to the Morning Star. Venus then goes through a period called Superior Conjunction (where Sun is between Earth and Venus) as the following diagram illustrates.

Venus Superior

During the 50 days of superior Conjunction, Venus is not visible to the unaided human eye.

Once it does become visible again, it appears to us as an object in the western evening sky as the Evening Star for 263 days.

It then approaches Inferior Conjunction and a new cycle starts again.

To address the question of whether or not Venus impacts human emotion, consider the following:

Harmonic Lines that Intersect

W.D. Gann had many tools in his arsenal. One of the most powerful was what he called Planetary Transit Lines. This technique was made possible when he devised the Wheel of 24 which allowed him to connect price and planetary orbital time. Jeanne Long in her writings in the 1980s took Gann’s work and refined it a bit more into the Universal Clock. In 2012, Italian mathematician Fabio Oreste took matters one step further in his book Quantum Trading.  Oreste applied some basic quantum physics to the concept of Planetary Transit Lines. I am sure Einstein would be doing the happy jig if he were alive to day to see how quantum science extends to the financial markets.

Long story short – what one should be alert for are times when Planetary Lines intersect. These intersections all too often represent points of  trend change. Sometimes the trend change is big, sometimes small. In order to benefit from these intersecting lines you need to be comfortable using stochastics or one of the oscillator indicators. If the technical indicators are suggesting an overbought or oversold market and if there is a harmonic line cross apparent in the very near future you are then in the unique position of being able to capture a piece of the trend change either through an options spread or an outright buy or sell trade.

I recently posted a couple videos on my AstrologicalTrader YouTube channel which I encourage you to look at. (

I will wrap up this short blog piece with a chart of Corn futures on which I have overlaid Jupiter, Neptune and Mars harmonic lines. I have indicated on the chart the various intersection points. Take a look at them, take a look at what price did within a couple days of the intersection and I think you will see why they are such a powerful tool.

Now that I have the very efficient software program Market Analyst, I can quickly perform the overlay of harmonic lines. In each edition of my weekly astrology E-Alert (see for details) I make it a point to profile various stocks, commodities and indices in the context of harmonic lines.

What will make you sit back in contemplative silence is when you start to see how often times these harmonic intersections also occur just as various astrological phenomena are occurring. We do not control the Universe. In fact, the Universe controls us and our emotions which in turn then influence the financial markets. W.D. Gann tried to explain this many years ago and now Fabio Oreste in his book Quantum Trading is reminding us of such yet again.

ASX 200 and Uranus Harmonics

Harmonic lines as calculated using the Oreste methodology can be used to get a better handle on the ASX200 Index in Australia.

In the calculations, I have set CS=2.

I find that the Uranus harmonics are particularly powerful at having aligned to past swing highs and lows. Hence, if following the ASX200, I advise continuing to watch the Uranus harmonics (and sub-harmonics).

The following chart ( not the greatest…) was extracted from a website that I found. I have overlaid the various Uranus harmonics and sub-harmonics on it. Notice, if you will, how well these lines have caught past swing pivot points.

The next target for the ASX 200 is the 5788 level which is a full harmonic. Recent comments from the team at Helix Trader in Australia point to a developing rising wedge pattern. These comments should be taken seriously as rising wedges can turn ugly in a hurry. A likely turning point for this wedge pattern is the 5788 Uranus harmonic.

Gold – At a Critical Harmonic Level

Overlaying a Gold chart with Gann lines and Harmonic lines can provide one with a unique perspective on price action. In March 2014 Gold peaked at $1392. From this high, one can project Gann lines downwards. From the early June low at $1241, one can likewise project Gann lines upwards. Using the Oreste method which I detail in my subscriber newsletter, one can overlay the Gold chart with Saturn and Neptune harmonics. Notice that Saturn and Neptune harmonics have bracketed the trading range year to date. Right now, the area of interest is the Uranus and Pluto harmonics at the $1272-3 level. This is where price currently finds itself. Two harmonics acting in concert should provide a good support level. But, if price wants to blow through this support, the situation for Gold is going to turn ugly as we will be headed for a test of the June lows and the Saturn / Neptune harmonics.

Gold Astro Update – July 20, 2014

In my most recent edition of the E-Alert ( , I provided subscribers with an update on Gold. The following chart is what I included in my write-up. The lines projected from the March 2014 high are of course the Gann lines. The colored bands on the chart are the heliocentric and geocentric harmonic lines. The geo and helio harmonics for these outer planets are so close mathematically that I decided to simply create a band of price to include them both.

I offered a longer explanation in the E-Alert which I will not include here. I trust you can draw your own conclusions from this chart as to the situation with Gold and where support and resistance levels are.
