A Moment of Time

Two circular diagrams showing the division of the day and of the
week, from a Carolingian manuscript (Clm 14456 fol. 71r) of St.
Emmeram Abbey. The day is divided into 24 hours, and each hour
into 4 puncta, 10 minuta and 40 momenta. Similarly, the week is
divided into seven days, and each day into 96 puncta, 240 minuta
and 960 momenta.
A moment (momentum) was a medieval unit of time. The movement of a shadow on a sundial covered 40 moments in a solar hour. An hour in this case means one twelfth of the period between sunrise and sunset (see planetary hours). The length of a solar hour depended on the length of the day, which in turn varied with the season, so the length of a moment in modern seconds was not fixed, but on average, a moment corresponds to 90 seconds: A day was divided into 24 hours(of unequal lengths, twelve hours of the day and the night each), and an hour was divided into four puncta (quarter-hours), ten minuta and 40 momenta. The unit was used by medieval computists before the introduction of the mechanical clock and the base 60 system in the late 13th century. The unit would not have been used in everyday life. For our medieval counterparts the main marker of the passage of time was the call to prayer at intervals throughout the day.

The earliest reference we have to the moment is from the 8th century writings of the Venerable Bede. Bede describes the system as 1 hour = 4 points = 10 minutes = 15 parts = 40 moments. Bede was referenced four centuries later by Bartholomeus Anglicus in his early encyclopedia De Proprietatibus Rerum (On the Properties of Things). Centuries after Bede's description, the moment was further divided into 60 ostents, although no such divisions could ever have been used in observation with equipment in use at the time.

Cosmic Cluster Days | December 2016 - January 2017

The basic assumption here is that heliocentric and geocentric angles between planets are related to financial market movements. A signal is triggered when the composite line of all aspects breaks above or below the Average Cosmic Noise Channel

Upcoming Cosmic Cluster Days (CCDs) are: Nov 25 (Fri), Nov 26 (Sat), Nov 27 (Sun), Dec 14 (Wed), Dec 23 (Fri), Dec 29 (Thu), Jan 09 (Mon), Jan 11 (Wed), Jan 12 (Thu), Jan 25 (Wed), Feb 08 (Wed). Previous CCDs are HERE

SoLunar Map | December 2016 - January 2017

This chart depicts the solunar bias for short-term movements of stock indices two months ahead. The markets are certainly influenced also by other planetary forces - especially longer-term - but a 3-5 day short-term rhythm and pattern is governed by the solunar forces (= 4 highs and 4 lows per lunar month). The solunar forces are a composite of Sun-Moon angles, orbital eccentricities, declinations and some long-term cycles. A Low in the SoLunar Map frequently is a High in the stock market and vice versa. Inversions occur, and if so, they should occur only once every 4 lunar months around a New Moon (max +/- 7 days). The solunar rhythm is frequently disturbed by (1.) the FED, and (2.) by sudden solar activity, altering the geomagnetic field, and hence the mass mood. This can result in the skip and/or inversion of pivots in the SoLunar Map. An increasing number of sunspots and flares have usually a negative influence on the stock market some 48 hours later, and vice versa (Ap values > 10 are usually short-term negative). A rising blue line in the SoLunar Map means the bias for the market is side-ways-to-up, and vice versa. Highs and lows in the SoLunar Map also may coincide with the start and termination of complex, side-ways correction patterns like zig-zags, triangles or flags. 

Upcoming SoLunar turn-days are: Nov 25 (Fri), Nov 29 (Tue), Dec 03 (Sat), Dec 06 (Tue), Dec 10 (Sat), Dec 14 (Wed), Dec 18 (Sun), Dec 21 (Wed), Dec 25 (Sun), Dec 29 (Thu), Jan 01 (Sun), Jan 05 (Thu), Jan 08 (Sun), Jan 12 (Thu), Jan 16 (Mon), Jan 20 (Fri), Jan 23 (Mon), Jan 27 (Fri), Jan 31 (Tue), Feb 04 (Sat).

Bradley Indices | Geocentric + Heliocentric | 2017


The above Bradley Indices were created by combining all geocentric and heliocentric planetary aspects and declinations in numerical values for each day. Sometimes the changes in trend in these indices will fit incredibly with the market behavior. The direction of the indices aren't as important as the concrete trend change. Find more information on the Bradley Indices in Donald Bradley's original "Stock Market Prediction" and HERE.

Top 0.1% Of American Households Hold Same Wealth As Bottom 90%

The US has a serious inequality problem according to a huge study by Credit Suisse: The top 0.1% of households now hold about the same amount of wealth as the bottom 90%. The Gini coefficient is a measurement of the income distribution within a country that aims to show the gap between the rich and the poor. The number ranges from zero to one, with zero representing perfect equality (everyone has the same income) and one representing perfect inequality (one person earns the entire country’s income and everyone else has nothing). A higher Gini coefficient means greater inequality. Developed-market economies such as those in Germany, France, and Sweden tend to have a higher GDP per capita and lower Gini coefficients. On the flip side, emerging-market economies in countries like Russia, Brazil, and South Africa tend to have a lower GDP per capita but a higher Gini coefficient.

The US, however, is a big outlier. Its GDP per capita is on par with developed European countries like Switzerland and Norway, but its Gini coefficient is in the same tier as Russia’s and China’s. On a global scale just 0.7% of the world's adult population owns almost half of the world's wealth, while the bottom 73% have less than $10,000 each. The 3.5 billion adults with wealth below $10,000 account for 2.4% of global wealth. In contrast, the 33 million millionaires comprise less than 1% of the adult population, but own 46% of household wealth. The past year saw a slight increase in the number of US dollar millionaires and high net worth individuals, with Japan the main beneficiary due to appreciation of the yen. 

The top tiers of the wealth pyramid – covering individuals with net worth above $100,000 – comprised 5% of all adults at the turn of the century. The proportion rose rapidly until the financial crisis, but has remained quite stable since that time. It currently comprises 8.2% of the global total, exactly the same as in mid-2015. The US, home to 41% of the world's millionaires, dominates the wealth league tables, while the UK had a terrible year in dollar terms. Britain lost by far the greatest number of ultra-high-net-worth individuals – those with more than $50 million – down 700 to 4,700. The UK also lost the most amount of millionaires, down by 422,000 to 2,225,000 people. Because the data is denominated in dollars, the pound's 18% collapse after the vote to leave the European Union will have driven a lot of the change.

SPX vs Declination of Mercury + Venus | Parallel of Declination

A parallel aspect is formed between two planets with the same declination or distance north or
south of the ecliptic. If the planets are both North or both South of the ecliptic, the parallel
aspect is read as a conjunction. If they are the same declination but one is North and one is South,
then the contra-parallel is read as a 180 degree opposition.
On Nov 24 (Thu) Mercury and Venus will be parallel of declination at -25 degrees south (circled in red).
This usually entails a change in trend (+/- 1 CD).

Share Prices from 1509 to 2016 | Tide in the Affairs of Men

There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.

William Shakespeare | Julius Caesar: Act 4, Scene 3, 218 – 224.

SuperMoon on Nov 14 | Closest and Largest in 86 Years

On November 14 (Mon) the Full Moon will be closer to Earth than it’s been since January 26, 1948. And the Moon won’t come this close again until November 25, 2034. That makes the upcoming Full Moon the closest and largest Supermoon in a period of 86 years. A Supermoon is the coincidence of a Full Moon or a New Moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical term is the Perigee-Syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.
