DJIA rises from 20,453 to 20,547, gaining 0.46% in 1 week.
We wish to explain the sharp rebounds of 2 trading days (1 in Hong Kong, and 1 in both HK & NY).
The rebounds are engineered by an active Mercury (which is in anti-clockwise motion).
Mercury is a Singer. Even without Neptune (Musician), Mercury sings sweetly (& stocks rise) in the absence of a strong Jupiter. This is very true when Mercury moves in retrograde motion (i.e. Mercury moving backwards - in anti-clockwise direction), and the rise is significant.
The data below are copied from The Swiss Ephemeris.
On Wed 12 Apr 2017 backward moving Mercury (R = Retrograde motion) is made active by Opposition Moon. Exact Opposition is @GMT 07:40 (or in Hong Kong afternoon). Hong Kong stocks rally in the afternoon (look at the up-arrow on the Hang Seng Index Price Chart). This is a short term positive aspect (influence aroused by Moon is short term), so NY investors do not feel the positive influence on Wed 12 Apr 2017.
On Thu 20 Apr 2017 backward moving Mercury (R = Retrograde motion) is made active by Conjunction Sun. Exact Conjunction is @GMT 05:55 (or in Hong Kong afternoon). Hong Kong stocks rally. Stocks in NY also rally (look at the up-arrow on the DJIA Price Chart). This is a medium term positive aspect (influence aroused by Sun is medium term), so both Hong Kong investors and NY investors feel the positive influence on Thu 20 Apr 2017.
Having ascertained that Mercury is a Singer of Melodies, we can apply the knowledge to forecast stock market trend in first half of May 2017.
The Red Rectangle on the Mars-centered Ephemeris indicates the period of bullish influence. Lower down is the enlarged portion of the bullish period, for easy reading.
We observe the following:
[a] Mercury (wavy path in dotted red line) moves like an elongated “S” round Giant Outer planet Uranus (broken straight red line). Uranus strengthens the voice of the Singer.
[b] Configuration of [a] is positioned at 450 behind Mars. This makes an agitated Mars which emits positive influence (to erase negative influence) so Mercury (Singer) is protected.
[c] Mars is further stimulated by Neptune posited at 900 behind Mars. Neptune is a Musician. He now joins the Singer to produce sweet music.
450 and 900 are hard angles to bring out bullish Mars influence. A strong Mars protects the Singer & Musician, and we can hear Melodies in first half of May 2017.
This corroborates the opinion of my last blog:
“A rising stock market from end Apr 2017 (for about 3 weeks) is expected”.
