The anticipated 9-11 style attacks did happen last week. NY stocks responded by falling only mildly (not the expected collapse) – though stocks plunged in Europe.
On Tue 22 Mar 2016, shortly after 8 a.m. local time in Brussels, two brothers (Ibrahim and Khalid el-Bakraoui) blew themselves up in the terror attacks on Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek Metro Station. The bombers were allegedly planning to attack a nuclear power plant.
The positive influence of [Uranus Sesquare Mars] counteracts the negative influence of the attacks.
[Uranus Sesquare Mars] is exact on 18 Mar 2016, and then it begins to disintegrate. Owing to Mars slow orbital speed (slower than normal as viewed from Earth), lingering bullishness remains for several days more.
On Mon 28 Mar 2016, Moon moves to Conjunct Mars, and it will lend support (probably final support) to the New York market.
I am still negative on the stock market, for 2 reasons:
Negative Reason #1
Positive [Uranus Sesquare Mars] has pushed up the market since the 2nd week of Mar 2016. Now it finally disintegrates completely. Disintegration of a significantly positive aspect is bearish on the market.
Negative Reason #2
Solar Chart 2016-04-16 says [Jup AT 90 Uranus] is effective. This aspect is potentially bearish. When Earth moves to the opposite side of Uranus (on 10 Apr 2016), bearish influence of Jup AT will be released in full.
I am therefore moderately bearish on stocks for the coming 2 weeks. I am only moderately bearish because the very detrimental negative scenario is over.
In the past posts, I repeatedly refer to a bearish feature: Insulation (of Earth) from bullish planets Mars and Saturn. It is obviously from the Solar Chart above that Insulation is no more because Earth has moved past Conjunction Jupiter. Earth is now able to interact with Mars and with Saturn without impediment.
Time will come (from mid Apr 2016) when Earth does interact with these planets, and a long term rising phase in stocks will begin.
