“Cosmic Causation in Geophysics” - W.D. Gann's Reading List

A reader of this blog recently provided the pdf-softcopy of one of the last three missing titles from W.D. Gann's Reading List: Paul Councel's “Cosmic Causation in Geophysics”. In this 28 page pamphlet of 1945 the author argues that the history of humankind and its future evolution could be plotted by astrological computation: There were “cultural epochs" about 2,160 years long, themselves divisible into recognizable events, and if humans wanted to control the evolution of the earth, and bring it back into cosmic harmony, they would need to follow Mr. Councel's fortean eschatology.

Unlike the title suggests, “Cosmic Causation in Geophysics” has nothing to do with geophysics nor with trading, and is certainly but another incoherent, eclectic and non-relevant trivia in W.D. Gann's long Reading List. Why Mr. Gann advised his students to waste time on such humbug? Didn't he know better?

The Art of Measuring Time

Prague Astronomical Clock (HERE)
For thousands of years, devices have been used to measure and keep track of time. The current sexagesimal system of time measurement dates to approximately 2000 BCE, in Sumer. 

Most of the first clocks were not so much chronometers as exhibitions of the pattern of the cosmos. Clearly the origins of the mechanical clock lie in a complex realm of monumental planetariums. 

The medieval Prague Astronomical Clock at left was installed in 1410 - more than 130 years before Copernicus published ‘On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres’ in 1543. It is the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working (HERE)

China Stock Market Crashes Again

Chinese mainland shares are in the process of mean reversion towards its 200 day moving
average. The Shanghai Composite went as far as 55% above its 200 MA into June of this
year. That was an extremely overbought condition, similar to the peak in 2007.
Credits: ShortSideOfLong
South China Morning Post (Jul 27, 2015) - Monday ended with the SCI300 index of 300 leading Shanghai and Shenzhen stocks off by 8.6% and the SSECI (Shanghai Composite) down 8.5%. That is their biggest one day fall since 2007. The abrupt drop, during the afternoon trading session on the Shanghai stock exchange, appears to signal worried investor sentiment, despite the past month of massive government efforts to prop up the equity markets. Traders said that there was no specific news that triggered the sell-off, and said that the government organized rally had been too quick and too steep to be sustainable. 

The Chinese stock markets have been a roller coaster ride for many investors. A huge rally began in October last year and propelled the market upwards by over 150%. Late June saw a brutal 30% correction, which sparked panic and the suspension of trading in most Chinese shares. That caused the Chinese government to loosen liquidity, cajole some companies into buying back their shares, and cancel many IPOs. It even announced a target, for the indexes to reach 4,500 before support measures would be withdrawn. Amazingly, Monday’s crash still leaves the mainland markets up over the past three weeks. Since the markets’ recent low on July 8, they had climbed by 18% till Friday (July 24).

Planetary Hours

One fundamental principle of cognition is the scission of the Monad into two parts of symbolic opposites: hot and cold, light and dark, hard and soft, raw and cooked, good and evil. The division of the day into planetary hours is based on this way of thinking: the cycle of the day is split into a dark and a light part. The light part is defined by the length of time between sunrise and sunset and the dark part comprises the hours between sunset and sunrise. And since the length of day and night is only equal at the equinoxes, whereby its opposite, the longest day and shortest night or vice versa occurs at the solstices, William Lilly wrote in his Christian Astrology:

1 Planetary Hour = (Sunset - Sunrise) / 12
It is very true, some of the Ancients have Winter and Summer, made the day and night to consist of equal hours. I mean every hour to consist of sixty minutes, equally; but Astrologists do not so, but follow this method, viz. according to the motion of the Sun both  Summer and Winter, so do they vary their hours in length or shortness.” One measures the time between sunrise and sunset and divides it into 12 equal parts. These are the planetary day hours. The same may be done with the night hours, measured from sunset to next day’s sunrise to find out the length of each of the planetary night hours.

Watch rulers of days, hours and signs, especially beginnings of Sun
and Moon hours as well as rise, culmination and set of planets.
You must understand that as there are seven days of the week [...] there are seven Planets [...] We appropriate to each day of the week a several Planet; as to Sunday the Sun, to Monday the Moon, to Tuesday Mars, to Wednesday Mercury, to Thursday Jupiter, to Friday Venus, to Saturday Saturn.” 

This order is known as the “Chaldean Order”, derived from the planets' relative mean speeds which are important in horary astrology (HERE).

Calculation of the planetary hours played a certain role in Renaissance astrology and magic. Astronomical tables published in the late 15th or during the 16th century often included a table of planetary hours with their significations.

SPX vs 4 Lunar Year Cycle + 1 Lunar Year Cycle

The 4 Lunar Year Cycle is repeating and currently modulating the very choppy July-December 2011 correction pattern
(blue shaded areas). Should the May 20, 2015 high (#5 + #1) be exceeded, the next likely time-frames for a major top
would be August 18 (Tue) and September 8 (Tue). The ideal time frames for the major low in this correction pattern (#6
are the second week of July, August 19, the second week of October and November 6 [all dates +/- 5 CD].

Smart Money Went Long USD 5 Billion in S&P 500 Index Futures Last Week = 3rd Highest of Current Bull Market

The indicator is simply the difference in "Smart Money" confidence versus "Dumb Money" Confidence. If the Dumb Money
Confidence is at 100%, then that means that these bad market timers are supremely confident in a market rally. And
history suggests that when these traders are confident, we should be very, very worried that the market is about to
decline. When the Dumb Money Confidence is at 0%, then from a contrary perspective we should be [buying stocks],
expecting these traders to be wrong again and the market to rally. Buying the market the day this indicator flashes
green, and simply holding long for three months, makes money 95% of the time (Jason Goepfert ‏@sentimentrader).

Derivatives | The Unregulated Global Casino for Banks

This is 1 Trillion Dollars.
SHORT STORY: Pick something of value, make bets on the future value of "something", add contract & you have a derivative. Banks make massive profits on derivatives, and when the bubble bursts chances are the tax payer will end up with the bill. This visualizes the total coverage for derivatives (notional). Similar to insurance company's total coverage for all cars. 

LONG STORY: A derivative is a legal bet (contract) that derives its value from another asset, such as the future or current value of oil, government bonds or anything else. Ex- A derivative buys you the option (but not obligation) to buy oil in 6 months for today's price/any agreed price, hoping that oil will cost more in future. (I'll bet you it'll cost more in 6 months). Derivative can also be used as insurance, betting that a loan will or won't default before a given date. So its a big betting system, like a Casino, but instead of betting on cards and roulette, you bet on future values and performance of practically anything that holds value. The system is not regulated what-so-ever, and you can buy a derivative on an existing derivative.

Most large banks try to prevent smaller investors from gaining access to the derivative market on the basis of there being too much risk. The derivatives market has blown a galactic bubble, just like the real estate bubble or stock market bubble (that's going on right now). Since there is literally no economist in the world that knows exactly how the derivative money flows or how the system works, while derivatives are traded in microseconds by computers, we really don't know what will trigger the crash, or when it will happen, but considering the global financial crisis this system is in for tough times, that will be catastrophic for the world financial system since the 9 largest US-banks shown below hold a total of $228.72 trillion in Derivatives - Approximately 3 times the entire world economy (see chart below). No government in world has money for this bailout.
More detailed information on these 9 banks HERE

The unregulated market presents a massive financial risk. The corruption and immorality of the banks makes the situation worse. If you don't want to bank with these banks, but want to have access to free ATM's anywhere - most Credit Unions in USA are in the CO-OP ATM network, where all ATM's are free to any COOP CU member and most support depositing checks. The Credit Unions are like banks, but invest all their profits to give members lower rates and better service. They don't have shareholders to worry about or have derivatives to purchase and sell. Keep an eye out in the news for "derivative crisis", as the crisis is inevitable with current falling value of most real assets. 

9 Biggest US-Banks' Derivative Exposure - $228.72 Trillion

China’s Stock-Bubble Burst

Adam Hamilton (July 10, 2015) - [...] the Chinese stock markets had been the most-interesting financial story of 2015.  Having the world’s second-largest economy, China is immensely important in global markets.  And its stock markets were soaring, as evidenced by China’s flagship benchmark stock index.  It is the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index (SSEC), the local equivalent of the US S&P 500.

By the ends of March, April, and May, the Shanghai Comp had soared 15.9%, 37.3%, and 42.6% year-to-date!  Such gains were astounding, creating the equivalent of trillions of dollars of wealth for Chinese stock investors.  And unlike major stock markets in the West, China’s are dominated by its army of retail investors.  Ordinary Chinese people account for over 5/6ths of all the national stock-market transactions. So China’s soaring stock markets truly were a popular speculative mania. More HERE

The Global Financial Ponzi Scheme

$1,280,000,000,000 = There is only 1.28 trillion dollars worth of U.S. currency floating around out there.
$17,555,165,805,212.27 = 17.5 trillion dollars is the size of the U.S. national debt. It has grown by more than 10 trillion dollars over the past ten years.
$32,000,000,000,000 = 32 trillion dollars  is the total amount of money that the global elite have stashed in offshore banks (that we know about).
$48,611,684,000,000 = 48 trillion dollars is the total exposure that Goldman Sachs has to derivatives contracts.
$59,398,590,000,000 = 59.4 trillion dollars is the total amount of debt (government, 

corporate, consumer, etc.) in the U.S. financial system.  40 years ago, this number was just a little bit above 2 trillion dollars.
$70,088,625,000,000 = 70 trillion dollars is the total exposure that JPMorgan Chase has to derivatives contracts.
$71,830,000,000,000 = 71.8 trillion dollars is the approximate size of the GDP of the entire world.
$75,000,000,000,000 = 75 trillion dollars is approximately the total exposure that German banking giant Deutsche Bank has to derivatives contracts.
$100,000,000,000,000 = 100 trillion dollars is the total amount of government debt in the entire world.  This amount has grown by $30 trillion just since mid-2007.
$223,300,000,000,000 = 223.3 trillion dollars is the approximate size of the total amount of debt in the entire world.
$236,637,271,000,000 = 223.3 trillion dollars is - according to the U.S. government - the total exposure that the top 25 banks in the United States have to derivatives contracts.  But those banks only have total assets of about 9.4 trillion dollars combined.  In other words, the exposure of our largest banks to derivatives outweighs their total assets by a ratio of about 25 to 1.
$710,000,000,000,000 to $1,500,000,000,000,000 = 710 to 1,500 trillion dollars are the estimates of the total notional value of all global derivatives contracts.  At the high end of the range, the ratio of derivatives exposure to global GDP is about 21 to 1. Credits:

Game Over 2015.75 | Martin Armstrong

"Schaeuble wants a Grexit to put the fear of God into the French!" HEREHERE
Martin Armstrong: "This is the start of BIG BANG and as the rest of Western nations
raise taxes, the economy is about to fall off a cliff and they bring economic activity
into a swan-dive. They will, as always, blame the private sector. We can see this
decline coming as long-term bonds crashed from May, liquidity has collapsed, and there
is excess cash in the short-end keeping interest rates low ensuring we will see not
just municipalities decline into a debt crisis like Detroit, but we are staring in the
eyes of death insofar as pensions are concerned. Politicians are good for only (1) lies,
(2) corruption, (3) debt, (4) taxes, and (5) death and war."

Forecasting the NYSE with the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle | J.H. Weston

[...] Diagram A is designed to show the curve of influence produced on stock market prices by the varying angular distances of Jupiter from conjunction or opposition with Saturn. It will be seen that at 0 years and 0°, which is supposed to represent the time of geocentric conjunction and opposition of the planets, the dotted curve, which is our composite price of stock in the 10-year cycle, starts a little below the mean circle; then late in year 1 when distance is about 18° between the planets it goes to maximum height; then drops low in middle of year 3 at 54°; rises to late in year 5 or 90°; drops soon to a little late in the 7th year at 126°; rises slowly to past the 9th year or 162°; lastly, comes to a little below the mean again at 10 years, 180°, same as at beginning. Then at 180° another 10-year cycle starts and repeats this movement, and so on to eternity. It is thus seen, by the dotted curve in this diagram that Jupiter and Saturn cause maximum and minimum prices in the stock market when their geocentric angular distances between each other are about as follows:
Max.    Min.
18°    54°
90°    126°
          162°   180° and 0°
This dotted curve shows positively that the planetary influence is what we call harmonic, meaning a wave-like motion, fixed in angular position like the crystals of a snow flake (hydrogen at low temperature) with 2 minor axis that join at 72°, as illustrated by the central part of diagram A." [pp. 35-36]

General consensus within the astro-financial community traces the primary development of modern financial astrology to around the 1920s, when W.D. Gann mentioned a planet for the first time in a 1921 Forecasting Course and Professor J.H. Weston self published his breakthrough work 'Forecasting the New York Stock Market' (manuscript, no binding, 47 pages). Also in the early 1920s Sepharial produced most of his known 'Arcana' or 'Keys' to the markets, though he stated in his advertisements that these systems had been in development since 1898.

However Professor Weston represents the earliest application of Fourier Sequences to market analysis, by breaking down component cycle waves and combining them to produce a composite model. 

J.H. Weston was a regular contributor to Frederick White's journal 'The Adept' (e.g. HERE) and also one of the first to propose a 'Decennial Cycle' theory, actually with two different versions of the ten year pattern. The first is his computation based on 50 years of data, of a series composed of 14, 20 and 28 months, called the Venus term and based upon the heliocentric system. The second is a sequence which divides the Jupiter-Saturn cycle into 10 irregular parts, but follows the geocentric system. 

Professor Weston was a great influence on W.D. Gann, implied by his manuscript being locked in Gann's safe, and he may have been the one who introduced Gann to Fourier cycle theory, providing Gann with the foundation for his 10 year cycle with its multiples.

SPX vs Retrograde Cycles and Speed of Planets

From the Earth-based geocentric perspective a planet can appear to move backwards through the zodiac, i.e. in an opposite direction to its usual
movement (direct motion). Before a planet changes its direction from either retrograde to direct or vice versa its motion becomes increasingly
slower until it appears to come to a stop. This is called the stationary phase. The planets have different periods of retrograde motion:
Mercury 3 times a year for 3 weeks,
Venus roughly every 18 months for 40 to 44 days,
Mars roughly every 26 months for 60 to 80 days,
Jupiter roughly every 13 months for about 4 months,
Saturn roughly every 12 1/2 months for about 4 1/2 months,
Uranus roughly every 12 months for about 5 months,
Neptune roughly every 12 months for 5 months and 6 days,
Pluto roughly every 12 months for 5 to 6 months.
Shifts from direct to retrograde as well as the minimum and maximum speeds correlate with changes in trend in financial markets.

Greek Referendum Logistics provided by CIA-Goldman Sachs-Bilderberger Clique

"Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything."
The logistics for the Greek referendum on the EU austerity proposal on July 5th are provided by Singular Logic, an US company closely related to the CIA, Pentagon, NATO, the Bilderberger Group and Goldman Sachs. 

With headquarters in Athens, Singular Logic carries out US government contracts with confidentiality duty orders from the Pentagon and the NATO framework. Right now Singular Logic organized this referendum, provided and installed electronic voting machines and will count the ballots and votes tonight on behalf of the Greek Ministry of Interior. SingularLogic was bought only in December 2014 by the US investment firm Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts & Co (KKR) when it became clear that Syriza would take over the government of Greece. Since decades KKR and Goldman Sachs cultivate intimate business relations. In 2004 it was Goldman Sachs helping the Greek government to mask the true extent of its deficit with the help of a derivatives deal that legally circumvented the EU Maastricht deficit rules. Henry R. Kravis, the owner of Singular Logic, participated in the April 2015 Bilderberger meeting in Austria while former CIA Director General David H. Petraeus is chairman of the dubious "KKR Global Institute". Credits: Mathias Broeckers

Eternal Recurrence of the Same

"I am all the names in history."
“What, if some day or night, a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life, as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh … must return to you — all in the same succession and sequence — even this spider and this moonlight between the trees and even this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence is turned over again and again — and you with it, speck of dust!’ Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god, and never have I heard anything more divine!’ If this thought were to gain possession of you, it would change you as you are, or perhaps crush you. The question in each and every thing, “do you want this once more and innumerable times more?” would lie upon your actions as the greatest weight. Or how well disposed would you have to become to yourself and to life to crave nothing more fervently than this ultimate eternal confirmation and seal?” 

Friedrich Nietzsche (1882) - Aphorism § 341 - The Gay Science.
