The Finger of God


The Yod aspect pattern is a configuration of three planets creating a long isosceles triangle, called the Finger of God (two 150 degree angles = quincunx, and one 60 degree angle = sextile). Yod is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, meaning the Finger of Yahweh. It has kabbalistic and mystical significance regarding the name of God, his omnipresence and men's humility. The apex of the Yod pattern is always pointing to something important. Right now (Jan 31, 2013) a very rare heliocentric Yod is formed by Earth, Mars and Pluto (1 degree orb):  

EAR = 131.34 degrees (11°LEO 20'43'')
MAR = 340.51 degrees (10°PSC 30'37'')
PLU = 279.45 degrees (09°CAP 27'04'') 


Mars, God of War, master of energy, action, and desire. Pluto, God of the Underworld, master of subconscious forces, transformation, renewal and rebirth. Out of their water signs both are pointing to Earth, this lonely planet of God's most wondrous creatures in the fire sign of Leo. Last time this pattern adorned our solar system with the same precision was June 13, 1876. Next time will be May 3, 2079. Astrologers usually associate the Yod pattern with the arrival at a fork in the road and having to proceed in one direction rather than another without knowing where it will lead to.

S&P500 Seasonality - January Indicators

Jeffrey A. Hirsch: The recent Santa Claus Rally (SCR), the First Five Days (FFD), and the January Barometer (JB) were all positive. Since 1950, all three indicators have been positive 27 times and full-year gains followed 25 times. 

The chart shows the 1-Year Seasonal pattern of the S&P 500 when the SCR, FFD, and JB were all positive since 1950.

Where is the Key to the Gold Vault?

The Emperor's New Clothes
Gold-plated tungsten has turned up all over the world, and a top German gold expert found fake gold bars imprinted with official U.S. markings. This added to the reasons why many Germans also lost confidence in the Fed (HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE). The notion rapidly spread when the Fed refused to allow German officials to inspect the 1.536 metric tons of German gold stored in the U.S. since the Cold War.   

In January 2013 the German Bundesbank demanded that the U.S. kindly return the modest amount of 300 tons. It should be moved out of the New York Fed, and repatriated back to Frankfurt, where currently only 31% of Germany's gold is deposited. The rest is supposed to be in New York, Paris and London
. Fine so far. Now the news is that it will take the Fed seven years to procure Germany's 300 tons of gold. Right on. Yes, this is the same Fed that, in its own words, holds some "216 million troy ounces of gold" or some 6720 tons, in its vault 80 feet below Manhattan's ground level. Will the Fed ever pay any  interests? Of course not. Consider it a tribute to Wall Street's Global Empire.


Pimco CEO Bill Gross comments: "When the Fed writes $85 billion of checks to buy Treasuries and mortgages every month, they really have nothing in the “bank” to back them. Supposedly they own a few billion dollars of “gold certificates” that represent a fairy-tale claim on Ft. Knox’s secret stash, but there’s essentially nothing there but trust ... Amazing!"

Cycles of War

Credits: Martin Armstrong
Jean-Claude Juncker, Grand Duke Henri's Prime Minister of Luxembourg and resigning President of the Euro Group, made some very extraordinary statements in his New Year's Speech on January 7th: He advised his audience (eighty journalists among them) to take a look back at 1913, the last year of real peace in Europe before World War I and the end of the Cold War in 1989:

D'Joer 2013 kéint e Virkrisejoer ginn wéi d'Joer 1913, wou all Mënsch u Fridde gegleeft huet, ier de Krich koum. D'Joer 2013 huet onendlech vill Parallele mam Joer 1913 [translation: The year 2013 could become the year before the war, just like 1913, when everybody believed in peace until the war started ... 2013 has countless parallels with 1913.] 

Alas, a Prime Minister warns his fellow countrymen of a possible war in 2014, and close to nothing gets published by the domestic mainstream media, and not a single word outside of Luxembourg. Too strange indeed. Usually they liked to parrot every syllable of Mr. Juncker.

When cycle analyst Charles Nenner told the Fox Business network in March 2011 that major war would shake the globe by 2012, Fox-hosts sat in stunned silence. No questions, no comments. Since then NATO had  unleashed the so called 'Arab Spring', France invaded and destabilized half a dozen of African and Arabian countries and China seems to be at the brink of war with Japan. Marc Faber points out: "If the global economy doesn’t recover, usually people go to war."  Let's raid. Jim Rogers remarked: "Trade wars always lead to wars. Nobody wins trade wars, except generals who end up fighting the physical wars ... A continuation of bailouts in Europe could ultimately spark another world war."


China’s future 18 overseas military bases (HERE)
Martin Armstrong recently declared: "The Great Depression took place because of the Sovereign Debt Crisis ... The civil unrest emerging from the collapse of government safety nets is headed this way and should start in 2014." HERE he outlined: "Yes, the Cycles of War are due to turn up in 2014. But this will most likely begin with the rise of internal separatism and civil unrest. True this model pinpointed World War I, World War II, Vietnam all spot on. This time, it is primarily focused in the West/Middle East rather than Asia ...War has been a fairly regular pastime of mankind, but it ALWAYS is linked to economics." 

Raymond Wheeler, a historian at the University of Kansas, uncovered the fact that international battles wax and wane at nearly regular intervals of about 11 years, and Buryl Payne found that the start of battles occurred mostly during the ascent, or decent, of sunspot activity every 11 years. 

Exactly 90 years ago Oswald Spengler explained: "A power can be overthrown only by another power, not by a principle, and only one power that can confront money is left. Money is overthrown and abolished by blood ... Through money, democracy becomes its own destroyer, after money has destroyed intellect." Next comes the rule of force, the power of blood and the ways of war. Spengler felt that Western Man is a proud but tragic figure, for, while he strives and creates, he secretly knows the actual goal will never be met.

Decennial Cycle and Presidential Cycle in 2013


Michael Riesner and Marc Müller: Technical Outlook 2013 - Since 1900 the US market has marked an important long-term bottom in the first 4 years of EACH decade, without exception (see table of Lance Roberts at left) ... The last major low in the S&P 500 we saw in March 2009, which obviously belongs to the last decade. So either we see in the current decade the first failure of this pattern in more than 100 years or we will see another bear market and subsequent bottom in the next 2 years, which would then fit to both, the presidential and the decennial cycle. In this context it is very interesting that if we combine both cycles and look into the past, we are getting again a consistent picture of having a high probability for seeing a new bear market in the next 24 months. Since 1941 we had 7 presidential election cycles where the post-election and mid-term year fell into the first 4 years of a decade. In 5 out of 7 cycles (72% probability) we saw significant bear markets and more importantly, they were among the most painful bear markets of the last century! 
Conclusion: Our preferred scenario for 2013 is that we see an important March top in equities, followed by a distributive summer top building phase before seeing significant weakness from a potential August top developing into Q4. ... From a potential top of around 1550 to 1570 we could see the market correcting to 1180/1100. From a secular perspective this potential new bear market could bring us a very important long-term low for equities in 2014.

S&P500 vs 20, 45 and 60 Year Cycles = Daily Correlations 88% - 92%

"The Great Time Cycles are most important because they record the periods of extreme high or low prices. The cycles are 90-Years, 82 to 84 Years, 60 Years, 45 Years, and 20 Years.

"The digits 1 to 9 when added together total 45. 45 is the most important angle. Therefore 45 years in time is a very important cycle. One-half of 45 is 22 ½ years or 270 months. One-fourth of 45 is 11 ½ years or 135 months, which is three times 45.

"This is the greatest and most important cycle of all, which repeats every 60 years or at the end of the third 20-Year Cycle. You will see the importance of this by referring to the war period from 1861 to 1869 and the panic following 1869: also 60 years later – 1921 to 1929 – the greatest bull market in history and the greatest panic in history followed. This proves the accuracy and value of this great time period."

"One of the most important Time Cycle is the 20-Year Cycle or 240 months. Most stocks and the averages work closer to this cycle than to any other."

Mass Pressure Chart 2013

Several years ago the Mass Pressure Chart was hyped and sold as W.D. Gann's ultimate secret. Daniel T. Ferrera, a pundit on the matter, admits: "I have talked to many Gann experts about the Mass Pressure Chart and most have no clue as to what it may be. I have never seen an actual original Mass Pressure Chart from W.D. Gann and I do not know of anyone else who has come across one."

However, it seems the Mass Pressure Chart is but a selective or incomplete Decennial Pattern: Each value of this equally weighted composite is derived from 6 past price values of the DJIA exactly 80, 60, 40, 30, 20, and 10 years back. The Mass Pressure Chart and the Decennial Pattern oftentimes look very much the same, and have identical turning-points.

SPX vs George Bayer's Rule #6 - Mars @ 16(AQU)35

MARS IN GEOCENTRIC LONGITUDE PLUS 330 DEGREES
Here is a rule that does not occur very often. Whenever it can be used, grand results are obtained. We use the position of Mars in geocentric longitude and the value to be used is 16 degrees 35’. The signs which we have to use change from year to year backwards. In simpler words, we add to a value once established 330 degrees. As stated above the Laws of Nature are very intricate and hard to explain, but when looked up on charts and in the ephemerides you can grasp what I mean.

Decennial Pattern for 2013

Larry R. Williams: The Right Stock at the Right Time, p. 11
In his book Tides and the Affairs of Men (1939), Edgar Lawrence Smith presented the idea of a ten-year stock market cycle. Smith's theory resulted from combining two other theories, Wesley Mitchell's 40-month cycle theory and the theory of seasonality. Combining these two periods, Smith theorized that there must be a ten-year, or 120-month, cycle. 

This would result from ten 12-month, annual cycles and three 40-month cycles coinciding every 10 years. When Smith investigated prices more closely, he found that indeed there appeared to be a price pattern in the stock market that had similar characteristics every ten years. This pattern has since been called the decennial pattern.

Smith used the final digit of each year's date to identify the year in his calculations. He termed the years 1881, 1891, 1901, etc., as the first years; 1882, 1892, etc. are the second; and so forth. 

"The 10-year cycle continues to repeat over and over, but the greatest advances and declines occur at the end of the 20-year and 30-year cycles, and again at the end of the 50-year and 60-year cycles, which are stronger than the others.

SPX vs George Bayer's Rule #4A - Mercury 80 Years Ago

We use the geocentric ephemeris, concentrate only on Mercury as it passes through the Zodiac. We mark each day when this planet enters a new sign 80 years ago, i.e. when it arrives at 0 degrees. We also mark those days in which Mercury turns retrograde or direct ... These dates are to be carried over ... exactly 80 years further according to the Sun’s motion and not according to Mercury’s motion ... Each and every one of these positions gave 80 years later tops and bottoms not of a few points but of from 50 to 200 points in hides.
