“Most Gann aficionados know that Gann used astrology and that essentially the most profitable merchants use it of their buying and selling, as it’s the hidden undercurrent that runs the markets. J.P. Morgan, the founding father of the Morgan financial institution, was fond of claiming that “anybody could be a millionaire, however to change into a billionaire, you want an astrologer.” He had a personal astrologer, Evageline Adams, who helped him tremendously. I’ve been lucky to buy monetary astrological books from her library.
It’s a little identified indisputable fact that W. D. Gann went to India and studied Indian Sidereal Astrology. In his notebooks we discover sketches of astrological symbols on his charts; and in his memoirs, he discusses his journey to India. Actually, the well-known Gann wheel was first utilized by tea retailers in seventeenth century India. Gann additionally mentioned the significance of utilizing the beginning date of when the primary futures contract for a commodity started buying and selling for predicting the way forward for that commodity. To my data, there are only a few people who use these beginning dates to efficiently time the markets though my expertise in utilizing Indian Sidereal astrology has proven that these charts are invaluable.
Beneath is a short introduction to Indian Sidereal Astrology, an outline of Indian time cycles and the way they can be utilized, and a forecast by way of 2017 for the U.S. stock market based mostly on this method.
The Western Zodiac vs. the Indian Zodiac
Indian astrology is over 5000 years previous and has its basis in historical science. Parashara, an amazing seer or historical scientist, intuited the legal guidelines of area and time answerable for the evolution of human consciousness and recorded his findings in a guide known as the Brihat Hora Sastra.
The primary main distinction between Indian and Western astrology lies within the calculation of the longitude of the planets. Historical Indian astrologers noticed that the equinoxes and solstices moved backward by one diploma each 72 years, an astronomical phenomenon now often called precession. Over time this has resulted in a distinction of barely over 23 levels between the tropical Zodiac, utilized by Western astrologers, and the sidereal Zodiac, utilized by Indian astrologers. In essence, the 2 programs differ of their alternative of a zero level for Aries–the Western system makes use of the place of the spring equinox, whereas the Indian system makes use of a set star. Thus when the Solar is transferring into Aries based on the Western system, it’s nonetheless at 6 levels Pisces within the Indian system. (For an additional dialogue of the variations, please see my article within the Winter 1989 NCGR Journal.)
Planetary Intervals: Past Transits
A dasha is a time frame throughout which one’s life is influenced or ruled by a selected planet. For instance, the shortest interval, the Solar interval, lasts six years, whereas the longest interval, Venus, lasts twenty years. These cycles unfold in a set sequence and comprise 120 years earlier than they repeat. The order of the cycles is:
Ketu (Moon’s South Node): 7 years
Venus: 20 years
Solar: 6 years
Moon: 10 years
Mars: 7 years
Rahu: (North Node) 18 years
Jupiter: 16 years
Saturn: 19 years
Mercury: 17 years.
The place the cycle begins relies on the precise place of the moon on the time of beginning. For instance, when soybeans began buying and selling in 1936, the moon was within the constellation (nakshatra) of Orion, which is dominated by the planet Mars. Thus a sequential unfoldment of cycles started with a seven years Mars interval adopted by Rahu (North Node of Moon), 18 years, Jupiter 16 years, into its present Saturn interval that lasts 20 years and many others. If beans had begun buying and selling a day later, then the cycle would have begun from the following constellation, which is dominated by Rahu, or the North Node of the moon. The variety of levels the moon has transited by way of a nakshatra will decide how a lot time is left within the preliminary cycle. Thus if the moon had been within the remaining diploma of the constellation, the preliminary cycle will start within the final part of the cycle. (Software program is out there for speedy pc calculation of those cycles–see references beneath.)
Inside main cycles are sub-periods or sub-cycles that additionally unfold in a set sequential sample. The sub-cycle begins with planet ruling the foremost cycle after which continues in sequence. For instance, the present Saturn interval for shares began with a Saturn/Saturn interval in 1998, and continued with a Saturn/Mercury interval in August 2001 adopted by a Saturn/Ketu interval in 2004, and many others. The key Saturn cycle will end in 2017 after which the U.S. stock market will go right into a Mercury main interval. To be able to correctly use the Indian time cycles and their smaller intervals, one will need to have the precise time of the beginning of the primary future’s contract of a commodity. Every minute that one is off can result in altering the prediction low or excessive by about Four days. O’Non and Remnick illustrate the significance of the precise time utilizing an analogy from physics:
To launch a rocket ship to the moon, data of the exact angle, time, and placement of the launching on earth are essential. Whether it is launched at a barely totally different time and angle, it is going to miss by 30,00zero to 40,00zero miles.
I’ve needed to journey to the archives of the Chicago Board of Commerce and different main exchanges to confirm the primary tick beginning time and have collected an virtually full set of dates and occasions that I make accessible to contributors in my superior seminars or by way of my residence examine course on Vedic Monetary Astrology (see references beneath). The problem is that a few of this knowledge could be very exhausting to get or was destroyed as was the case for wheat and corn knowledge as a result of Chicago fireplace and New York exchanges merging and never maintaining good knowledge. It takes time to rectify the charts and make them helpful. The simplest technique to perceive the results of a interval is just too take a look at previous examples. As a result of we’ve got 215 12 months of knowledge on the U.S. stock market, and the entire unfoldment of a sequence of cycles is 120 years, we will return to the interval between 1878 and 1897 to check previous analogues.
Utility of the Indian Cycles to the US Inventory Market
What is very thrilling about utilizing dashas or Indian time cycles for market prediction is that it permits one to know the precise date that cycles change, to label them, and to quantify whether or not they’re robust ups, minor ups, robust downs, or sideways. If one research the 215 12 months historical past of the stock market, and is acquainted with the foundations for…predicting and decoding the Indian dasha or time cycle system, the mysterious cycles which appear to manipulate shares would not be a thriller. For instance, by no accident the bull market that started in 1982 coincided with the start of a 16-year Jupiter interval, which started in late August. Generally then, this method predicted the stock market would proceed to increase till 1998, since Jupiter is a “”bullish”” planet and is nicely positioned within the natal chart of the Could 17, 1792 stock market chart. Rises and falls inside the main cycles are defined by sub-periods, or antardasas. These sub-periods can both amplify or diminish the power of the foremost interval.
Inside this 16-year interval, the transits of Jupiter, its retrogradation and features to it are particularly influential since Jupiter assumes the second most essential position within the NYSE chart subsequent to the moon, the chart lord. The Jupiter interval resulted in 1998, when a 19-year Saturn interval assumed the second-most essential position.
A current examine I did of the NYSE will clarify how the dashas might be of use to identify short- time period and intermediate declines or rises. Sure mixtures result in very predictable outcomes. To get each day timing on the stock market, one wants study 4 or 5 ranges of dashas, or cycles, to interrupt the bigger 20- and 2-3-year intervals down into 20- and 3-4- day intervals. Amazingly, the cyclical mixtures which can be unfavorable on the bigger scale stage will typically show unfavorable on the smaller scale.
A comparability of the October-February 1987-88 fourth stage cycles (Jupiter/Mercury/Venus/Rahu and many others.) with the third stage intervals in 1901-1904 (Mercury/Venus/Rahu) reveals that the foremost lows coincide with a repetition of explicit mixtures. This precept will also be prolonged to sections of different cycles in different years. For instance, be aware the next:
Venus/Rahu/Saturn: (8-28-29 to 2-17-30) Declined from excessive of 372.06 on 9-03-29 to a low of 230.07 on 10-29-29. Jupiter/Mercury/Venus/Rahu/Saturn (Dec 4, 1987). Signaled one other main low and decline to 1747 on the Dow after being as excessive as 2051 following the crash.
Jupiter/Mercury/Venus/Venus/Rahu (October 19, 1987) The third stage Venus interval did contribute to the course of the decline together with numerous bearish oppositions, the return to an eclipsed constellation, and the sidereal transit of Uranus into Sagittarius. This one instance signifies how the Venus/Rahu mixture can be utilized to sign a pointy decline if it happens in a selected mixture.
This explicit Venus/Rahu mixture is just one of many mixtures that one can label, and traditionally examine. Different mixtures are bullish, resembling when the sequence unfolds from a Solar interval right into a Moon interval and onto a Mars interval. For instance, the stock market‘s final main Moon Interval went from August 1947-August 1957. Throughout that point the Dow went from 179.74 to 492.32, a achieve of over 200%. Throughout smaller moon cycles inside bigger intervals, such because the Mars/Moon interval from Jan 21, 1964 to August 21, 1964 the market climbed from 776 to 838. And within the Rahu/Moon interval from Jan 31, 1980 to July 31, 1981, the Dow climbed from 875 to 935. Even on the third stage we will normally depend on a rally throughout a moon interval, such because the Jupiter/Mercury/Moon interval from April 4, 1988 to June 13, 1988. We noticed a shock rally that started in late Could and took the Dow from 2000 originally of the interval to virtually 2200 by the tip of the interval.
From the above examples, one can see the worth of with the ability to label and quantify the cycles so as to predict the magnitude of the transfer. As many cycle analysts know, one can typically discover main cycle lows and entry level however nonetheless not have any concept how massive the transfer goes to be. The Indian time cycle evaluation is a real answer to forecasting as a result of it will possibly predict the longer term, not simply counsel it from the previous.
Way forward for the US Inventory Market Primarily based on Indian Cycles into 2017
A 19-year lackluster Saturn interval in 1998-2017 doesn’t have the bullish vitality that we’ve got seen within the Jupiter Interval from 1982-1998. Consequently, the market won’t go straight up nor will it go straight down–and it seems that Venus intervals have the largest proportion losses. As we noticed within the 18 12 months Rahu interval from August 1964 to August 1982, the market can go internet sideways in comparatively slender value bands over a few years.
There’s an approximate excessive into June 9, 2007 adopted by a pointy decline into the week of Oct. 22, 2007 with a decrease low due into in regards to the third week of April 2008. We’re nonetheless watching patterns to translate this into value motion.
There seems to be a restoration rally into late Could 2010, then a pointy fall into Dec. 2010, a restoration towards the highs into Jan. 2013 and a significant decline into 2013 that is without doubt one of the lowest factors in the entire interval, a restoration into August 2015 after which a pointy fall into the tip of the interval, which makes new lows into April 2017. Therefore the intervals to be lengthy shares seem like Feb.-June 2007; April 2008 to Could 2010 and Dec. 2010 to Jan. 2013. We alter these directional indicators utilizing Elliott Wave sample evaluation to foretell value. There seems sufficient upward momentum within the present cycle to take shares a lot larger into the June 2007 cycle excessive.
Gann reminded us that we’ve got to take the whole lot we all know and apply it to our forecasts. Indian Time cycles are one device. In our publication, we mix it with Elliott wave sample evaluation, minor astrological timing from planetary features, and 5 different proprietary cyclical strategies in addition to technical evaluation.
Again in 1990 and 1994, when everybody was bearish about shares, we predicted DOW costs nicely over 7000 into 1998-2000 based mostly on our dasha cycle fashions.
Anybody trying to uncover the mysterious legal guidelines of nature that underlie the commodity and inventory markets will probably be rewarded and intrigued by the depths of Indian astrology. The examine of Indian astrology leads not solely to data of financial legal guidelines, however finally to data of the self. Understanding Indian cycles and transits is as essential for buying and selling efficiently as a great timing system. A mix of the 2 is astoundingly helpful and results in a profound appreciation of the order of pure legislation. Whereas no astrological system ought to be used 100% to time market entries and exits, utilizing each astrological and technical indicators can actually stack the chances in a single’s favor.”
