The Month Ahead: Stock Market and Mining Shares

The astrological themes going forward surround around Neptune which rules lies, deceit, secrets, radicalism, illegal activities and fraud.  Mars (war tensions: think Russian naval movements into the Mediterranean) is also implicated, especially early in the month of November surrounding the dates of November 1-4. Gold could see a big move up around Nov 3-4. GDX could rally to around 26.00.

Meanwhile, “one last hurrah” (an expected stock market rally on October 31 into November 1) features the ongoing 27/54 TD top (+/-) along with the beneficent Mercury/Sun trine to Neptune, itself, due October 30-November 1. The E-Wave notation is ‘y’ of Y of “B”, right before “C”, the devastation wave.

All astro-cycles and the E-wave Equality of Waves Principle are pointing to an important bottom on November 18/21. Minimum downside damage should be at least 14% from the August 2016 top near SPX 2193/94. This figure is based on what happened from December 29, 2015 to January 19, 2016.

My TLC (Trend Line Convergence) lows that are due on the SPX are November 3/4, November 10/11, November 14/15 and 16/17. We have another trine due November 5th, Venus trine Uranus, which should negatively influence the stock market beginning November 7th through the 10th or 11th (Mars semi-squares Saturn on the 9th, so the warning is “don’t buy the early move up, instead, sell all rallies”). This looks to be election related with some war tension still on the burner.

Important, immediate astro-aspects are Venus conjunct Saturn, found near important turns and Mars square Uranus, implying war tensions, both occurring on October 29. Bradley turns include Nov 1-3, Nov 13-15, Nov 18, Nov 24-25 and Nov 28-29. The last Bradley turn was due on October 24th, which was a top.  I had a TLC low due October 28, which was also a Lindsay turn.

Option Expiration week sees likely choppy action with the TLC lows of November 14/15 and 16/17. Precious metals stocks look down from the expected high of November 4th to around Options Expiration, November 18/21th.  GDX could go as low as 18.50. 

November 18th sees Mercury square Neptune, followed by Neptune turning stationary/direct on the 19th.  November 18 or 21 could initially be a huge down day, but a reversal looks likely.  SPX 1881 is my expected down side target, but the wild card here is mainly the Presidential Election (with the Middle East tensions too). It is possible we go much lower into the mid 1700’s or even the mid 1600’s for that matter. I just don’t know.

By no means will this coming sell-off become THE “meltdown” everyone thinks is coming (and rightfully so).  The cycles and waves tell me it is just a tad too early for the BIG ONE. Think 2018-2020.

I’m trying to help as many people as I can make money during this coming crisis.  It is during times of turmoil like the one I expect in the next 3 weeks that traders can make the most money.

We are long the SPX via SPXL, SVXY and November 2, 214.50 SPY calls.  We took advantage of the gap up Monday and shorted.  Despite a choppy and difficult week, we managed to make some great returns including buying NUGT just a few minutes before the FBI probe information came out Friday.  We sold for about a 5% profit the same day.

Like a weather forecast, I have to adjust my strategies as I go.  Day by day (and even hour by hour) as I receive new data, those strategies change. Keep this in mind when reading this article. It is not about making the perfect forecast, it is about being ready for the contingencies…if this, than that, etc. A forecast is just a general road map, not set in stone.

A Minor Pull Back Then Higher?

The SPX looks like it is tired right here and due for a minor pull back.  Tuesday October 25th is the expected 8 TD low.  The 4 TD low is due early Wednesday.  The overall pattern begs for a move back to 2130 in the next day or two and then higher into October 28-31.  October 31 is the expected 8 TD top +/-. A break of 2130 would suggest a test of 2113, but still higher into month's end.  Upside targets: SPX 2174/76.

Gold and the miners could move higher into Thursday.  We played the short side Thursday into Monday on GDX via DUST and puts, and exited with a nice profit. We are short the SPX and long volatility.

The patterns and astro-cycles suggest a rough November ahead that could bottom between the 17th and 18th. Mars is implicated in the US chart beginning in about week at the same time Russian warships should be arriving in the eastern Mediterranean. A 10%+ correction is expected on this end. The possibility exists for a 20%+  bear market.

Danger, Will Robinson, Crash Dead Ahead!

When I mean crash, I mean about an 11-14% stock market panic in a few days. The astro is there, the e-wave is there and so are the cycles and chart formation (plus some technical information like the MACD daily below the zero line).

I’ve been talking about a Rising Wedge building for a while now.  I also talked about the expected False Break, which we just had on Thursday when the S&P 500 went down to the 2114 level and then bounced.  It pierced the bottom of the daily Bollinger Bands and closed back above them.  Now we must go back into the wedge itself before turning back down in expected waterfall action in the coming waning days of October. The SPX will likely be up nicely on Tuesday with some follow through into Wednesday in most indexes. I look for either a bearish evening star pattern or bearish Harami to form on the 19th.

The e-wave formation is completing a bearish “B Wave” flag before “Wave C “, the devastating bear wave arrives. Astro-wise we have Mars translating the Uranus/Pluto Square October 19-28, with Jupiter square Mars still in the mix from October 5th. To add to the mix, Mercury opposes Uranus on the 20th bringing back the power of the Sun translation to the Uranus/Pluto square October 7-15.  Quite a mix!

To add to that, we have the Autumn new moon of October 30th, which in the
 past, has lead to a possible panic low around 3 trading days before the new moon +/- (October 25). The moon turns from Leo to Virgo on the 24th as Venus in Sagittarius squares Uranus in Pisces on the 25th!  All these mutable signs in square and opposition and WOW, watch out!  The 24th to the 25th look interesting!

The Lunar Delta factor sees a top on the 20th and low on the 24th.  The Helio Bradley looks for turns on the 18th and then 24th.  We have cosmic tension on the 18/19 and then 25th. Negative days of the sun in Scorpio occur October 24-26th. For the moon as mentioned late Leo into early Virgo (24/25th).

The similarities to the August 18-24, 2015 panic and the expected October 19-25 panic are quite striking. August 29th was the new moon, 5 calendar days after the panic.  The new moon this time is October 30th! Cycle wise, the next 8 TD low is due October 25 and combines with the larger 9 month cycle low from January 20, 2016.

The August 2015 rout was caused by the Chinese stock market and currency devaluation.  Because Mars is involved, this one may be initiated by either a terrorist attack or war tensions. Damaging storms and earthquakes are also possible (Matthew and the Pacific Northwest).

In August 2015, gold had just finished a multi month drop.  Recently, we see gold has plunged from a July top. If all things remain the same, we may see an attempted rally after Monday this week into the time of the expected stock market bottom.  GDX may stall out early on the 24th and drop hard into the 27th.



If I’m right about this plunge, there is a lot of money that can be made on this kind of drop.  There are volatility ETF’s and put options on stock indexes, which may very well make a ton of money come October 25th! We’ll see!
