    ok heres my 2 cents….today is saturday and as my wife is getting dresed and we are fixing to go out dancing and have a few shots of tequila out here in texas ..its better i pen down a few lines now than later ….LOL ….in my humble opinion if we do bottom out and technicals confirm the same on the weekly chart by the next cit of the 4th of oct . we should then begin to head back up ….going thru the month of october astrowise i do not see any negative aspects to stop the market from going up to form a double top except for a venus square jupiter on oct 16 which could be a down day on the way up…..The negative aspects begin oct 25-nov 3 . i have nov 1st as a cit . heres some imp aspects between oct 25-nov 3 ….oct 25..sun conjunct saturn ….10/28/2012 mars in opposition to jupiter which happens to be on a sunday new moon 10/29/2012 .venus in opposition to uranus on 11/1/2012 and venus square plutoon 11/3/20122 . nov 1 is the cit ….this should be the double top and then we fall hard nov 12could be a minor cause theres a newmoon and solar eclipse on nov 12 ……one more cit for nov is 11/27/2012 reason being 11/26/2012 sun trine uranus and venus conjunct saturn ..11/27/2012 mars conjunct pluto …11/28/2012 full moon .lunar eclipse ….so cit 11/27/2012 …..ok time to go my wife is ready …..cheers and lets take one week at a time remember confirmation rather than anticipation todays aspects all weather related …raining out here …but that aint going to stop me from dancing …LOL…cheers

    So where did all this interseting dialogue land? do we still believe SPX is going down until the 4th to our red circle target or do we only think Monday will down and then after that we aren’t sure?
    Tks.

      Testy I believe Anthony has already highlighted what he thinks which others disagree with. That’s the nature of this market. Anthony is right just wait for target and manage your risk

    • quynhunguyen
      September 29, 2012

      LOL, we confused testy. Mostly bears here for now, except me, but I’d join them once my stops hit. It really comes down to risk management for me. Let’s say if my stop is 1%, that means I can be wrong 4 times & just need to catch that one 5% move to make it all up, so you could be more wrong than right, but still make money (provided you honor the stops).

    • ZigZag
      September 30, 2012

      Hi Testy,

      We just need to be patient and wait for these things to play out. Nothing is going to hit exact every time and you can see on this INDU chart there were times I had to do a lot of fishing 😉

      http://tinyurl.com/9mlpto3

      Maybe the 4th won’t work this time and we have to wait for the 9th instead. Like Anthony said, we just have to manage our risk.

    Guys, just found some new info, sorry if you already know….
    According to stock traders almanac, 1st trading day of OCT down 4 of last 6, and Mondays have been down 9 of last 11, so far, Mondays is the worst day of the year

    • platypusfoot
      September 29, 2012

      Thanks Michael! Makes for a nice bottoming tail on the weekly eh?

  4. Karen
    September 29, 2012

    The other possible count is that the low on the 20th was wave (1), then we could have 5 waves down for (3) into Monday, wave (4) into the 3/4th then we get wave (5) down into the 5/8th…??? I guess it depends on the kind of low we get on the 5/8th….

    • Michael
      September 29, 2012

      With non farm payroll on Friday 5th, that could well send the market down until the sun jupiter trine

      • platypusfoot
        September 29, 2012

        Or up?

  5. Anthony
    September 29, 2012

    The key to this whole thing though is your risk.

    It doesnt matter whether 1st Oct is the low or 04/05 Oct is the low.

    The reason is that we got in higher anyway. We also think that 01 Oct low is at 141 ish and the low on 04/05 Oct is at 140ish. Roughly 10 SPX pts.

    So if i take profit on 1st at the low ive made money. I then buy on 1st, If we dip into 04/05 Oct my stop will be below 140 and i wait for the rebound into 10/11 Oct, I make money. You just have to weather a bit of drawdown. Either way.You make money.

    The bigger picture is whether 10/11 October is a higher high, which in my opinion it will not be.

    • Michael
      September 29, 2012

      I like your game plan Anthony ! Very pragmatic and well thought out. May the market be kind to us all.

    September 29, 2012

    Platy, I am seeing a BIG red flag on Silver around October 12th….big reversal and big range day….do you think Silver could see a big pullback around that time?? The market may top out at that time as well…???

    • platypusfoot
      September 29, 2012

      Could be! Silver likes to double top so even if we get a top this week it could go up again into the 12th.

      What is the cause of your red flag?

      • Karen
        September 29, 2012

        Some data on Merriman’s site….

        • platypusfoot
          September 29, 2012

          Thanks, Merriman’s great!

  7. Karen
    September 29, 2012

    Looks like we have a Sun Jupiter trine on the 9th, so looks like there is a possibility that we could make a new high somewhere between the 9-15th, looking more like around the 10/11th. Merriman confirms a possibility… “And finally we have a somewhat important planetary station arising on October 4, when Jupiter turns retrograde. It is still possible that stock markets advance once more to a new cycle high within a week of this occurrence.” I will not take this lightly…he has a lot of great insight…

    This week looks like there is a turn on Monday, and then the next turn on Thursday or Friday….I am not sure if we turn down on thursday into the following week, or if we turn down on thursday then back up on Friday…so be careful of the possibility.

    But it looks as if we could turn down on Thurs or Friday, and then turn up around the 8th with a potential big move up on the 9th and/or 10th…

    After that we could zig zag down into the 21-23rd….

    Anthony, Platy and ZZ, does any of this follow your info?? I know you guys have different ideas of turns, up and down, but just to double check that we could get an exaggerated move up instead of down around the 9th….???

    Sun/Jupiter trines are very positive….the market can run up a week or two into this aspect…

    • Michael
      September 29, 2012

      Karen, are you saying we’re turning up mon-wed ?
      Thanks

      • Karen
        September 29, 2012

        That is what I am seeing….we could hit a trough sometime on Monday, the next turn doesn’t come until Thurs and/or Friday according to my info….

    • Anthony
      September 29, 2012

      Hi Karen

      thanks for the great info. I think that we are forming a wave 5 down of a larger wave 1 so the rise next week into 4-5 Oct is our wave 2 high which i think will sell off into November.

      HOWEVER, there is some deliberation amongst us. Platy thinks that we will head to a new high based/doublt top based on her astro and is looking to load up long.

      So on this subject we are a little bit in disagreement which ofcourse opens things up for us all.

      Anthony

      • Karen
        September 29, 2012

        I wish I could show you my chart, but I will describe it as best I can…I am seeing we could have done an abc down to form wave A low on the 20th, then a B wave high on the 20th, then we could be in the 5th wave of C if we see a lower low than we saw on the 26th. It could be 5 waves down (that’s how Daneric is counting it), but it could also be an ABC…which is corrective of the move up….??? I guess we will see pretty soon…

        I just want us to remember this is a Jupiter trine Sun….Jupiter is expansion, luck, money, exaggeration…trines are positive…and it’s aspect is with a positive planet the Sun….I don’t want to go against Jupiter….

    • platypusfoot
      September 29, 2012

      Thanks Karen, looks like that fits well with ZZ’s expectation for a top on the 9th. I’m learning so much from you guys!

    • quynhunguyen
      September 29, 2012

      Thanks for sharing Karen. Looks like my projection lines up with yours. I think the dollar will get creamed the next 2 weeks, thus driving everything to higher highs (sucking everyone in), then they’ll take it down through early Nov., lining up with ZZ’s map. Glad I’m not alone.

      • Anthony
        September 29, 2012

        Maybe Quy re $

        On the other hand it looks like a big bear flag doesnt it.

        When something looks like it is, it usually isnt. In other words that dollar low could well be in.

        • jamesmarkii
          September 29, 2012

          He fails to realize that the big $$$ has been loading up on USD longs the last 2 weeks. You dont make big $$$ by being Wrong.

          • Anthony
            September 29, 2012

            Thats right Jimbo, weve seen many times the dollar making pre-emptive moves. To me its clear, this is bearish equities.

            • platypusfoot
              September 29, 2012

              Let’s see how Oct. 9 plays out, then we’ll talk. 😀

          • quynhunguyen
            September 29, 2012

            Like I mentioned before, this is what makes up markets (bulls & bears), nothing personal. I could careless if I’m right, just want to make money. Trust me, the moment I realize the market’s going downhill, my stops would trigger & I would go short without hesitation. By the way, I didn’t really see much volume on the dollar rise, where there was volume on the metals reversal Wed., but all could just be a fake. We’ll find out Mon. I believe. Mon. could be a down open, then reversal up, that’s my guess. I’m bullish, but will switch once it turns on me. I just hope the bears don’t get too bearish waiting for the bottom that may not come, thus missing the big move up (unless they too are willing to switch early enough).

            • platypusfoot
              September 29, 2012

              I’m with you Q. I just think we need to go a bit lower first.

              • quynhunguyen
                September 29, 2012

                Hurray, good to know Platy, my problem is if it does get that low, then my analysis is shot, but hopefully yours would still save me 🙂

  8. gannman
    September 29, 2012

    if you look above at the chart posted by anthony the red circle is the target……. to the left of that circle is a gap up….. in my humble opinion anthony is right and that gap might get filled ……

    • platypusfoot
      September 29, 2012

      Exactly my thinking Gannman, great comments here as always!

      • quynhunguyen
        September 29, 2012

        Be careful with the SPY chart, because of the rebalancing, it doesn’t exactly mirror SPX. SPX chart does NOT have that gap, so just because the gap is on SPY, it may not mean much. I see the last breakout point on SPX at around 1430, that’s why I think SPX didn’t get lower than 1430 last Thurs. I still think it should not get below last Thurs. low of 1430 anytime soon.

        • Michael
          September 29, 2012

          No big deal, once spy reaches it’s target, jump out of spx no ? Easy 🙂

          • Anthony
            September 29, 2012

            Yes that is correct Michael

            Use the SPY on another chart window as your guide for the SPX or anything highly correlated for that matter.

        • platypusfoot
          September 29, 2012

          SPX had a previous break out of consolidation at 1405. That is my target.

          • Michael
            September 29, 2012

            Platy, do you think your target will be reached by OCT 2-4 ?, pretty steep

  9. gannman
    September 29, 2012

    mars in sag….oct 6 thru nov 16……which provides foundation for a double top…mars in sag ..everything on speed ..

  10. gannman
    September 29, 2012

    in my humble opinion…we should continue heading down early during the week and then begin a reversal upward cit. . oct 5 . Remember you have jobless claims numbers on oct 4 and employment situation oct 5.. theres no way those numbers can be bad as we head in to elections also be mindful that mars will be trine to uranus oct 15 and sun trine jupiter oct 9 with venus trine pluto ….so one week at a time and be willing to change with the trend ….as the trend is your friend …..cheers

    • testy99
      September 29, 2012

      Hi,
      Do you have a level in mind for the low early next week gannman?
      I think Anthony is looking for about 1415-1420 SPX cash or at least he was late last week
      tks in advance.

  11. quynhunguyen
    September 29, 2012

    Somehow it doesn’t make sense to me how silver could top Mon, yet SPY could form a low. They’re normally in sync. I think there’s a scenario that could accommodate both bulls & bears, that is SPY forms a higher low Mon (143.6), then go up to new high, along with the metals ’til 10/9, when all will go down ’til 11/8 per ZZ’s map. I think Anthony even mentioned a possibility we go up to new high after this Mon. low. That’s why I’m not sure why one would try to short the market now just to get another point or 2 in SPY, the risk/reward doesn’t make sense to me.

    • platypusfoot
      September 29, 2012

      Good points Q…. I’m very cautious on metals because I see a good possibility of silver hitting 38 before reversing. But if it hits (or gets very close) I’m getting in there. My last silver call was 4 days off so it could take a few days to top.

      I’m not too worried about missing the equities short but I’ll take any trade that has a good set up so if I see a good opportunity I’ll grab it. Like I said before, I’m more interested in going long at the bottom. I see a high probability of SPY hitting ~141 next week.

      Thanks for your great input. 🙂

      Gannman, your post mentions nothing of the negative aspects happening this weekend and it’s effect on Monday’s trading lol . But not to worry it’ll prob just be another boring session with little 2pt scalps here and there 🙂

      I don’t study astrology that way so I’m sorry I can’t give an opinion. I’m sure Gannman and Karen could give you a better response. I have Oct 2-5 as a very important time period.

  14. Michael
    September 29, 2012

    Hi Platy/Karen

    Just looking at my basic astro software for nxt few days, I notice
    Sun sq Uranus – 29th
    Sun sq Pluto – 29th
    Fullmoon – 30th

    From my basic astro knowledge this doesn’t look very positive Monday opening does it ? I know the beginning of the month tends to be bullish but the look like strong negative aspects

  25. curiousmind3861
    September 28, 2012

    CIT team, great call on the Dollar bottom. Looks like it bottomed this morning. I am speculating here whether history will repeat itself. Last year on Oct 3, the market was down huge before the great reversal. Due to the proximity of ZZ’s call for bottom on Oct 4 this year, I am wondering whether we will see the capitulating down (maybe a little under 1400 to run all the stops) before the great reversal again. Sort of like the top on Sep 25, it was up 50 dow points before reversing to minus 100 dow points. I think that will give the power for the next move up to make a higher high, even if it is only marginally.
    All speculation, good for giggles only!

    • Mek
      September 28, 2012

      Yes, but last year Oct 3-4 was a major low preceding a multi-month uptrend…this year oct 9 is a temporary high before multi-month downtrend….at least that is how i am interpretting the info on this site. 🙂

      • curiousmind3861
        September 28, 2012

        Thanks for the info. Next week is going to be an interesting week!! 🙂

  26. Karen
    September 28, 2012

    It’s possible we see a low on Monday….could be trading in an abc down for wave 5, we could be currently heading down in wave c….2:19 eastern time….so if that is the case, we could see a low on Monday….which is the next turn date…

    I have noticed that ZZ’s turn dates sometimes have the biggest moves….so could we see a big move up on the 3/4th??

    His next turn is on Oct 9th…so could that day have a big move down?? We usually need to see a topping pattern before we get a big move down, so possibly we top before the 9th??? Just speculating….

      September 28, 2012

      I haven’t entered my short yet. I like to have my stops in break even or with profit. If you want me to recommend a stop for those already in I’d say 1451? but I’m not really good at that which is why I try to look for the extremes to enter. Anthony is a better person to ask.

    Yes, symmetry hits around Oct 4th, and I’m sticking to my guns that it’s a low until proven otherwise. I’m more interested on seeing how Oct 9th is going to look.

    do you think we missed the low of 142 & its heading up now?

    • platypusfoot
      September 28, 2012

      • platypusfoot

        Around 1415. I’m holding out for closer to 1405 but we’ll see when we get there.

              it’s certainly doing a good job of gap filling. I think people like me are a bit concerned that the full/new? moon this weekend is not going to help us with the down ticks. At least it hasn’t since the Spain announcement at noon. 🙂

    ZZ, I am wondering if you have a chart that gives some perspective on the drop during the Sept 2012-March 2013 time period?

    For example, the June-Sept 2012 rise looks HUGE on the close-up chart but compared to your Oct2011-Sept 2012 chart the rise since June is a little blip.

    Thank you.

      Hi Mek,

      It can vary on how big the actual price move will be. I never know on price and I mainly use it for time. There was one correlation that I was following in 2008 and the crash was tiny on that one compared to what actually happened.

    I agree with curiousmind, china stimulus equals more money in china equals more demand for global goods and commodities equals markets move higher

    • curiousmind3861
      September 27, 2012

      But the effect of easing is only temporary IMO, if the world economy keeps getting worse, as it seems to be with the economic data that has been coming out, if the demand is not there, there is a limit to how many ghost cities China can build if the income doesn’t catch up with inflation. Doing CPR on a dead horse is futile….

    Guys, i’d be very careful about shorting this market, don’t forget its Evergreen Friday tomorrow: spx up 8 in a row until last week when $SPX lost 0.01%.

    Also with talk of china stimulus overnight, could it be possible that the cycle has inverted ?

    Keeping in mind that I spend most of my time looking at the Nasdaq, and the Nasdaq does not necessarily peak or bottom on the same days as the S&P, it looks to me like Nasdaq is trying to form a head & shoulders. But I think it will be a fake-out. So I will be looking for a drop tomorrow back to the neckline area to load up. (Around NDX 2770-2790.) Failing that area could mean a drop down to as low as 2750 but not much lower.

    Also, full moon this weekend.

    ZZ, I thought it was trend down into Oct 3-4 and up into Oct 9-10. That leaves 3 more days of down…

      Hi Mek,

      Yes, our call has been for a low late August with a peak on the 25th, and then a low around Oct 4th. Next peak is still scheduled for sometime around Oct 9th.

      Most things I read say it’s up ti’ll the election.

        Yes i have read two schools of thought about the election.

        1. Stock market UP = Obama win & Bernake can keep his job

        2. Stock market DOWN = Romney win

        All news media currently writing off Romney and predicting another Obama term, so based on that you could be right about down into November…

        Steer clear of sandwiches until then.

    just to make a comment on your correlation graph dates. Seems to me that the Sep 18 top was 2 days early (Sep 14) and the Sep 25 peak was also 2 days early (sep 21).

    What do you make of this?

    thanks

    • ZigZag
      September 27, 2012

      Hi Steve,

      The correlation is a rough guide and can be off on the exact day. It had May 8th as a peak, but we actually started falling on May 1st. This is why I’d rather trade on my cycles first and then check to see if they’re close to what the correlation has.

      LOL, that is funny. Another reason I’m going against the calls here. Oil, gold, SPX have formed swing lows today, plus the dollar has formed a swing high. Unless they reverse before the close, the dollar is about to plummet & all risk assets will fly upward. Got my stops in though, just in case.

  66. quynhunguyen
    September 27, 2012

  67. ratandrea
    September 27, 2012

    I never expect it to break down in this bull market; although, sometimes I am pleasantly surprised. If the “bounce”(from reading road map by chart) is suppose to happen tomorrow, does that mean we close lower today? I know dates can be off by a few days or so, so maybe today was the bounce? Thanks.

  68. ratandrea
    September 27, 2012

    I’m a bit confused by this as well. I know it’s not about price but a change in trend, right? I’m also wondering what that entails i.e. the price opens lower and goes lower, or it opens and goes lower (if the trend has been higher), and if the trend has been lower then does S&P open higher and trend higher, or open lower and trend higher? I’m just trying to get a handle on exactly what a “trend” is. For reference, I am just using S&P as an example. I’m assuming these can be short, medium, and long term trends (diff. definitions to these as well I presume), so how do you know which trend is changing?

    • platypusfoot
      September 27, 2012

      It means we should be looking for a change in trend on the CIT date, and has nothing to do with opening price. Since we have been trending down from the 25th, we should be looking for a bottom tomorrow and then a rise into Oct. 5.

      I agree with Anthony’s outlook but would really like to hear what ZigZag has to say about this.

    • ZigZag
      September 27, 2012

      I’m still thinking Oct 4th will be some sort of low before the Oct 9th peak. We already know that the 25th high was the correct call, so I have to believe the 4th will be correct too. There’s always going to be a bounce and it usually doesn’t go in a straight line.

      I am seeing tomorrow as having some significance and it could be the next peak.

      If we close above the 25th high then it’s possible the 4th is a bust and we have to watch somewhere around the 9th.

    The Nasdaq is giving us some important clues to watch. If my analysis is right, then 2743 must hold on /nq, and we’re not that far from there as the Nasdaq is showing relative weakness and has already tested the breakout area. So it looks unlikely to me that the S&P will make it all the way down to its breakout area of 1410 like I thought it would. 1420-1425 may be a more reasonable bottom.

      And I think Anthony will be right by his map, meaning decline over by tomorrow (astro, full moon, quarter end window dressing plus already a down week to begin with hence more selling to finish it up and dolllar rise over and breather next week) and starting from Monday UP starts.

    Hi Anthony,

    I replied to your comment on my blog but figured I would post my response here as well to make sure you saw it.

    HI Anthony, thanks for stopping by. It is common for my average loss to be larger than my average winner, but the spread is not usually this great. We have had some unique market conditions lately that punished us with our loose stops, but the action could have easily worked in our favor as well. We average a profit factor around 2.0 for all systems, so I don’t see any necessary changes to be make.

    Yes, I use an adaptive stop, actually each system has a second way of exiting for a loss rather than getting stopped out, but with the short history of this blog I do not have any examples of this yet.

    The larger losses occurred during a transition area with my filters, going from bearish to bullish. It isn’t always this rough of a transition, but there were some very large moves in just 2 days that did most of the damage to the portfolio. We were also up 80% in just a couple of months, while the portfolio is designed to return 100-200% annually, so statistically we just got a little ahead of ourselves.

    Some interesting stuff you do over on your blog. Do you track your trades or have a posted portfolio?

    Anthony & ZZ – Looking at our projected election dip, do you think it’s possible that Bernanke will do anything to keep market up, so Obama could win & Bernanke could be reappointed by Obama, since Romney mentioned he wouldn’t reappoint Bernanke. Could that invert our projection ?

    Again , I question to platy: If the sp500 breaks the 1400 level-13.000 dow, in october or nov12? the significance of the Jupiter-Ceres fo the date of 31 ago12 change?

    On the other hand, in one chart, zig-zag one? shows a big decline to 1300, level wuich was tested in jun12.

    2. Is possible that the Jupiter-Mars opp in mid ag12 has been reiforced, with the Jupiter-Ceres and not make a support?

    All my cycle analysis depends on your vision of the Jupiter-Ceres interpretation, on 31st of agoust. If it is broken the support, would change your vision?

    My scenario is top in sep12-oct12? in DOW, 10-15% correction until mid. oct-nov? rebound and a significant drop into 2013, bottom around may13 and may be a doble one into jul-ago13-sep13?

    Thanks a lot, i appreciate your elaboration.

    Thanks ”

    Correct. About 10pts

    For resistance support bring up a chart of SPY (cash) have that on 1 screen or add some alerts when the price hits these SPY targets this will give you a decent indication of when to enter. Ill post these levels tonight, need to head out for the day.

    Hi CIT Team,

    First time poster here. I just recently stumbled upon your blog and lucky I did. That Sep 25 top call was exceptional. Congrats! I just need some help to navigate through the info on this site. Where can I see the roadmap of ZZ,Anthony and Platy? Are they posted somewhere on this site? I was only able to pick up bits and pieces in the comment section. Please correct me if the info is wrong.

    1) USD to bottom on Sep 29
    2) Top in SEP 25, and stocks go lower into election
    3) another ST low on Oct 4, and ST top Oct 11-12
    BTW, what does “top in Oct 11-12, correlation date is Oct 9” mean? I think I read it somewhere in the comments. I am sorry for all these newbie questions. Just want to get a hang on all the precious info given here.

    Also is there a roadmap for gold and silver also? It seems that Anthony and Platy are both expecting a correction ST, but in the longer term, what are your opinions?

    • platypusfoot
      September 26, 2012

      Welcome Curiousmind!

      My roadmap is in my head. I’m trying to get it on paper but November/December is giving me some trouble. In the near term, I think we should bottom somewhere in the August price range and then shoot up to higher highs. (This differs from ZigZag’s roadmap which has a lower high in October.)

      I think the metals need to come down more from here but when this correction is finished they should take off again in a hurry. If we get a good signal on a bottom for this correction we’ll let you know.

      • Anthony
        September 26, 2012

        Nicely put Platy

      • curiousmind3861
        September 26, 2012

        Thanks for your reply. So is the consensus here that, we go lower into Oct 4 probably to 1400, then bounce hard into Oct 11-12 (may or may not be higher than 1475), so what happens after this high, major down till Dec before another major rally? sideway chop?

        • Anthony
          September 26, 2012

          Hi Curious, welcome!

          At the moment we are discussing this. We have 2 different dates for highs in early October. ZigZag is showing a 04/05 October low, I am showing a 04/05 October high. At the moment we are monitoring support levels to give us a clue as to the true low. The general consensus in the meantime is that we are still down with the potential of a small bounce.

          We should be lower into elections to late November.

          Thanks
          Anthony

    Just wanted to congratulate you on your 9/25 call this week! Wish I had jumped in to short, however, just wanted to sit and observe this call through…lost too much to take any chances at this point. However, feeling more comfortable learning from the pros and more about the astro cycles.

He crouches
    down so that he cannot be seen. His sharp eyes and smell pick up the herd of
    animals just a short distance from him.
    He waits patiently for the animals to come within striking distance. The target animal
    is picked and it is just a matter of waiting for the right moment.
    Suddenly, without warning, the Lion strikes.
    He catches the unsuspecting animal by surprise.
    It is done in an instant, and the Lion has dinner…………..when the moment is right take the trade ……………

There’s a bunch of planetary aspects on either side of oct 5 (cit) if we continue going down in to oct 5 then be mindful we should turn around and head back up in to the mars trine uranus aspect of the 15th .anyways the reversal will be of at least 4% . looking at the weekly spy chart this is week 2 going down , we should find support head back up to make a double top before a bigger drop in to the november . please use your own technicals …..This is just my two cents ….Thanks a million everyone for all your input and time .

      Occasionally GLD, UUP.

      S&P500 $10 mini contract but i would no way recommend this for all its highly leveraged. 😉

    Dont know why everyone keep mentioning a charged website. I dont recall one website i been to once they started charging, their calls were good. It normally gets worst and worst lol. Not saying this site will be like that, but most charged site I see is.

    As well, being a pay site, lot of responsibilities and headache. With Anthony sleeping schedule, dont see how he is going to be able to answer our questions during normal trading hour. As well, ZZ loves fishing away from everything. Platy may be the only one around most of the time during trading hour where quick decision needs to be made assuming she is around. Oh, and all three can have different opinion at times, hard to make decision base on too many opinions, not saying that is a bad thing, but imagine two of the different opinion individual arent around to answer questions during trading hour.

    I may pay for the site if it does more products than SPY/SPX though. Like VIX/VXX
    my 2 cents.

    Anyways, if you guys do decide on making this pay site, good luck for sure. 🙂

      Hi investbb, as much as I like fishing, I’ve always been here 24/7

      I’m not a day trader, so I probably won’t be much help if someone needs a quick decision during the day. Swing and trend trading is my speciality and patience
      (I call it fishing) is what I preach. VIX/VXX are not cycle friendly, but if you bought today at my cycle peak then you’re already ahead of the game. I think all the three of us have been pretty darn close in our opinion of what is happening. Each of us have something unique to bring to the table and I’d much rather have that than trading on one persons view. You get all three of us for the cost of one 🙂

    This is what I wrote the other day…

    “Anthony, I have the same turn dates coming up as you 24th, 26th, 27th, and then the 1st. The astro’s this coming week are favorable to higher prices in the beginning of the week, and then lower later. The full moon on the 29th is negative. Charts I am looking at suggest that if we are up on Monday, possibly to SPY 137 area, then we could be down into the 25/26th, up into the 27th, then back down and capitulating on the 28th, then turning up on the 1st…”

    Thought the bounce on Monday would be higher, but not so…but technicals, EW and astro’s agree with above, which is exactly what Anthony said today…we could be in a wave 3 of C currently, so I am expecting the possibility of a wave 4 up, then wave 5 of C down — could be on Friday….

      Hi Karen. Love it when you Astro gurus confirm the geometry, super powerful stuff. Thanks for sticking around and offering your input.

      RoadMap is suggesting a low into the end of the week very early next week price targets for downside 140.5-140.7 or 141.5-141.7. Put these support levels in a separate window and monitor them for the other indices.

      Rebound target 145-145.50

      Changed my mind booked profit will re-enter at these higher prices.

      Roadmap – http://dl.dropbox.com/u/68546753/RoadMap1.png
      S/R & Time – https://dl.dropbox.com/u/61944563/SPY%20GEOM.png

      At the moment this is the opposite to ZigZags roadmap he has a high on 04 Oct and we all know what his track record has been like :s

      • ZigZag
        September 26, 2012

        I agree with your roadmap Anthony, I think Oct 4th will be a low and then a peak sometime around that Oct 9th date.

    I may add an /es (S&P futures) short on a bounce to 1445 or so.

    Somewhere around Oct 4th is the next low on the correlation. I’ll be looking at my shorter term charts tonight to see if I can find anything for us.

        September 26, 2012

        Hi Platy,

        I agree with you here, we may get a little bounce back here but we should head lower in the coming days and I think a target of 1420 to 1430 on the S&P is on the cards. Let’s see how it unfolds 🙂

  130. apanalis

    platy, and another question, 28oct12 new opp. Jupiter-Mars. Any implications?

    • platypusfoot
      September 26, 2012

      Possibly. I will be watching closely. But it is at 18°. So a lesser planet (Mars) and a lesser harmonic than the Aug 31 Jupiter-Ceres, so I think Aug 31 will hold.

      The Oct 28 opposition is more important to metals than it is to equities because it occurs at major harmonics for metals.

  131. cycleanalysis

      Hi Cycle,

      • cycleanalysis
        September 26, 2012

    September 26, 2012

    ZZ: Another good call again on Sep 25th, Do you think we still have a higher high to make a bullish diveigence before Oct 9? or 9/14 is the highest top in 2012 already ?Thanks

    • ZigZag
      September 26, 2012

      Thanks Steven.

      I wasn’t sure on that 9/14 cycle, but now in hindsight and looking at what happened today, I think that is likely our top date. On the chart that I posted this morning http://tinyurl.com/btq274m the next date on the green line hits on Oct 9th. The correlation has a peak on Oct 9th and I prefer to see the market heading up to that date, similar to the correlation.

    1 Question for Platy: If Mars-Jupiter in dif. conjuntions -that I ignore- from march09 (bottom) have been tops 24apr10, 1 may11 and 12-17 ago12 (tops), we ignore if 17 ago13 will be a bottom or a top ( i bet a bottom), how can we know if the Jupiter-Ceres of 30 ago12 is a bottom? It´s no doubt? 100%safely?

    2Have you seen another in the recent past signal similar to this Jupiter-Ceres. Is somenthing can avoid it influnece in the next future?

    Is very important for me, because disrupts my cycle scenario.

    You are very kind

    • platypusfoot
      September 26, 2012

      Jupiter-Ceres is a bottom because on the day of the conjunction the markets made a low, not a high. Also because after the event we have moved up. Nothing is 100% safe, but I’d go with pretty high odds.

      I don’t see anything that is likely to reverse the Jupiter-Ceres low anytime soon.

      Hi Phantom,

      My thinking is we’ll see a major dip towards the election and then a seasonal bounce into the new year. I think we have one more major selloff early next year before a sustainable new bull starts. If I’m wrong about this election dip, I still think we see a major decline soon after or early next year.

    Looking at the geometry on the SPY there is downward sloping channel resistance at 146.6. A break through of this resistance should lead to further upside to 147.5-147.7. I have a buy order at 146.6 and an order to take the cash at 147.6.

    Today could be the day weve been waiting for to go short if we meet upside price targets.

    • IHS
      September 25, 2012

      I’ve just read that if the SPY hit the 147.6, you were going to take the cash. Now, weren’t you excpecting something higher than the september 14th high? Thank you for your great work!!!

      • Anthony
        September 26, 2012

        Hi IHS

        It was always my idea that we would head above 1500 in early October, that hasnt happened. I had a position above the downwards sloping channel in case we broke up out of the channel, that hasnt happened infact we have met resistance at the channel. So at the moment im just trading on the geometry in front of me.

        Yeah he attributed the March top to heliocentric Uranus 18° but the March top was actually geocentric Uranus 18°, and heliocentric Uranus 18° was a bottom. I caught them both correctly. Still, the guy is a genius and the book will completely change how you look at the markets.

    With regards to Gold just closed my positions in NUGT will get in to DUST once i get a confirmation with a morning star candle stick or bullish engulfing candlestick pattern which i rely on in trading and has worked for me . Astrowise most powerful and bullish for gold is when geocentric mars transits thru scorpio every two years. In 2012 this happens august 23-oct6 . Meaning it would be wise to buy Gold within two weeks of its entrance in to scorpio on august 23 and then gold would form an important crest sept18 -oct 5 .sorry for the late post wasnt around here when i took the trade in august ………..keep up the good work ……….

Apparently it can signal a major low or high. also noticed that the historic high in gold 1/21/1980 was geo Mars 15* virgo. fwiw. Another cycle that is useful is the Jupiter-Saturn 180* cycle.

      So a correction in gold after Oct 4-6 is due, how long will it last until it finds its bottom? Do you have a price target for the low? Thanks.

    I’ve learned to trade the charts not the news.

    ZZ, you were looking for a high on Sep 25th, are you still looking for that or do you think it will be a low? Does you system show actual tops and bottoms or is it like Anthony’s where it can temporarily reverse?

    Thanks,

      Hi Rezito, I’m still looking at it as a top until proven otherwise. The correlation can be off by a few days, so I watch my cycles to see if the dates agree. It’s pretty rare to have them invert on me and I prefer to see price make a big move in the direction of the date.

        ZZ, looking at that chart I would take it as 24/25 being a low (low to low), with Oct 11/12 being a high (high to high). Is that how you see it?

        Hi Chris,

        If the 25th is a bust then you’re probably correct. Correlation hits on the 9th and that’s close enough to that Oct 11-12 date. I’m still thinking the Oct date could be a lower high though. We’ll know for sure pretty soon..

    SPY found support as per the chart posted, dollar hit downward sloping channel resistance.

      Anthony – Just saw where you had “chart update” above, saying next major resistance is 147. Does that mean u don’t think it’ll get to 149 by 9/26 as originally projected ?

      • Anthony
        September 25, 2012

        Quy

        There is big resistance overhead the S&P500 cant get through the 1465 level. All eyes are on the dollar and that mid upwards sloping channel on the SPY chart at 147. My preference is we go higher, inflation assets should give us another boost.

        The charts tell me that the SPY just hit support. I cant ignore that.

    I am not convinced now that market will drop, looking at today’s action…we may hit 1500 range first before making any pull back…no technical just gut feeling…read the article below on why market will not go down until election…

    Are we going to buy long today and sell tomorrow? or short today? market is in range and can’t make decision! still wondering why in last two brief pull back S&P never reached to 1440 level?

    What is the plan guys? if market is going higher from here then do you see tomorrow is huge rally? reach to 1500?

    • platypusfoot
      September 25, 2012

      Hi Stockboom, I have no plans to do anything until tomorrow at least and maybe not for a few days. I don’t like trading when a stock is range bound. If I see a good shorting opportunity in the next couple days I’ll let you know but my big plan is to get long on the drop later this week (if it happens). Keep in mind that I’m more conservative than Anthony so I’ll pass on trades he might take.

      • Stockboom
        September 25, 2012

        Thanks platy,

        But market is holding solid, and I am suspecting that we may have 25 point jump on S&P tomorrow to retest 1484…then it will be shorting opportunity…and that is why I am little nervous on which way to trade…

        But all good, will wait for your move.

        Cheers

    Hi Pindar, I’m not sure yet. I’d wait a bit and see what happens after 25th.

    Platy, this answer has been forgotten in the others commentaries.

    Check out, please:

    Thanks, platy I understand your explanationes, look what happened in 2011 with mars-jupiter, I think Jupiter-Ceres made a bottom for a short term. Is possible?. In JUL11 we saw new hihgs in Nasdaq, not in DOW, SP500, for example, before a big drop.

    This is what I am expecting, a drop in DOW 12-15% first in octuber, 2-5 oct/ 17 oct, a big rebound 23/11 and go down next 2013 to the 13 years cycle, in may13? or Jupitar mars cycle in ago13? about -30-35%.

    Thanks a lot.

      The 2011 S&P top was May 2, a geocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunction. The Aug 31 2012 Jupiter-Ceres conjunction is a major bottom, even if it doesn’t look like it on the charts. This means that 1400 is very strong support. I believe we will see S&P above 1600 in 2013.

    NDX…may prove important…

    my focus is on swing trades utilizing NDX instruments…just went through my daily check down…one of my daily trend charts signaled a sell today…it had been on a buy signal since mid July…one of my weekly trend charts is very, very close to signaling a sell…it has been on a buy signal since June…unable to post charts at this time…good luck with your trading…

    Hi Pindar, I think we’re essentially range bound at the moment. I don’t intent to take another trade until we get down below all this consolidation.

  169. platypusfoot
    September 24, 2012

    It looks like we should see a scary drop early this week. It is possible we go as low as 1400-1410 to re-test the September breakout levels but if it gets that low it should find strong support and reverse quickly.

    I would not rule out one more trip higher first. That would put us on track for Anthony’s low today and Zig Zag’s 9/25 high.

    if i read ZZ”s map correctly, it is saying a low ~ Sep 30 (as opposed to 04/05 October in the article above)

    • Anthony
      September 24, 2012

      ZZ’s map shows a 04 Oct low.

      My roadmap is slightly different from ZZ and is shown in the post above.
