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. (http://youtu.be/qS4w3yDWWdY)
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 http://www.investingsuccess.ca 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.
Has the bloodletting ended for Potash Corp ? Let’s take a look at some astrology to help answer this question.
Potash Corp has a first trade date of November 2, 1989. In the first trade chart, Sun is in Scorpio and is within orb of being conjunct to Mercury and Pluto. Sun is also 120 degrees trine to Jupiter. The ruler of the Sun’s sign -Scorpio is Mars and some would also say Pluto.
Looking at my daily price chart I see that the share price reached an interim swing high in mid-to-late May at the $45 level. At that time. repressive Saturn was hovering around the natal Sun position and the North Node was coming into orb of being conjunct natal Sun too. A pair of nasty house guests to be sure. The trigger point seems to have been Mercury making a 0 degree aspect to “key” planet Jupiter. As a result, price started to trend down and on July 30 price took a major body slam with news that a potash pricing cartel had fallen into disarray in Belarus. POT share price fell swiftly to the $30 level. Why the harsh emotional reaction? As price was swooning, aggressive Mars was passing key planet Jupiter and Sun was at a 90 degree hard aspect to both natal Sun and transiting Saturn. Since this price slam, POT has been treading water in a sideways channel pattern on the daily chart.
Fast forward to here and now and we see that Saturn is separating away from the natal Sun position, transiting Sun has passed the natal Sun position, Mercury is about to begin separating away from the natal Sun position and even North Node is starting to ease away from the natal Sun location. All good news to be sure. I am watching the sideways channel and a move over $34.50 (Canadian prices) will signal a move up and out of the channel formation. The next 0 degree aspect to the natal Sun position will come from Mars – but that is many months from now, so it looks like the coast is clear so to speak. The only questions are – how do large institutional investors view POT in particular and the crop nutrient sector in general? This will determine where POT prices go from here.
In a recent blog post, I showed a chart with Saturn lines overlaid. This blog focuses on the Jupiter lines which have been calculated by use of the Universal Clock. These lines have been overlaid on a 2012 chart of the Dow Futures (daily nearest data)
As with the Saturn lines, note how the lower-most line just catches the June lows. The middle line catches the mid-March top and the early May top. Note how the recent market performance is hugging the middle line on the chart. The upper Jupiter line catches the September highs.
Again, if you use astrology in your trading all this will come as no surprise. If you are new to the use of astrology in your trading, these Jupiter lines will give you reason to pause and contemplate the power of Nature….
