With the Galactic Trader Software
For thousand of years people have been relying on astrology to forecast TIME. What is little known is that the PLANETS in our solar system along with the SUN and the MOON can also be employed to forecast PRICES of stocks, commodities, currencies, bonds and futures. Better - all this can be achieved with an amazing degree of accuracy. Actually from a TRADER’S POINT OF VIEW it is easier to learn trading astrological PRICE as opposed to trading astrological TIME. You will see this for yourself as you follow me along these lines.
Trading with Astrology
Why could it be easier to trade on price than on time ?
Take for example ANY ASPECT between TWO PLANETS and consider its implications for time.
Is it bullish or bearish ?
For which markets or commodities ?
How long and strong will it effect a market ?
Three questions - many possible answers. To answer these questions a financial astrologer will come up with a SET of RULES of INTERPRETATIONS that he has established through study, research and experience. While this task is certainly not an easy one for a skilled astrologer, it becomes even more difficult for a trader with little background in astrology.
Take on the other hand the same aspect and apply it to price. By applying simple mathematics, anyone can immediately TRANSFER ANY PLANET to the PRICE of a commodity or stock.
In fact W. D. Gann believed that this process of planet to price conversion takes place in the SUBCONSCIOUS MINDS of the masses and that is why sometimes a market will reach a target and sometimes it will fail. The reason is hidden support and resistance as defined by the movements of the planets in our solar system. In this respect the planets also act as magnets and consistently attract price to them and repel price from them.
Converting Cosmic Energies to Price
The circle has 360 degrees and serves as a map to record the position of the Stars, Planets, the Sun and the Moon as measured along the ECLIPTIC. The ecliptic is the apparent path of the Sun across the celestial sphere inclined at an angle of 23.5 degrees to the equator. The inclination of the ecliptic is responsible for the four seasons.
Astrologers use the Greek word “Zodiac” which translates into “Wheel of Life” or “Animal Wheel” as another term for "the circle". The Zodiac is divided into 12 divisions (“Signs”), each comprising 30 degrees. The starting point of the Zodiac is the vernal equinox (March 20 or 21, beginning of Spring). At this point the ecliptic crosses the equator. On this day night and day are equal in length.
Thus if a planets stands for example at 69 degree of the Zodiac (9 degree of Gemini as Gemini is the third 30 degree division of the Zodiac) it will give support or resist to an index or stock at a price of 69, but also at a price of 429 (69+360), 789 (69+360+360) and 1149 (69+360+360+360), ….and so on. This is the basic idea behind a very powerful concept.
You might now wonder whether there are particular planets that provide support or resist to a particular market. The answer is no. Every planet can provide support or resist to a market, however important support/resist will only come from planets that are in aspect to each other. An aspect exists if two planets stand in a certain harmonic relation to each other such as conjunction (0 or 360 degree), an opposition (180 degrees), a trine (120degrees), a square (90 degrees) or a sextile (60 degrees. Also the 30 and 150 degree relations are important as they complete the family of 30 degree aspects.
W. D. Gann's Law of Vibration
It is known that W. D. Gann would draw planetary price lines on his price charts. This is evidenced by his famous Soybean chart (courtesy of Myles Wilson Walker).
The line starting at point "1" is the Jupiter planetary price line and the line starting and going through the points labeled "7" is the Mars planetary price line. A planetary price line is simply the conversion of the movement of a planet to a price chart.
While the conversion of planets to price can be done mathematically once the position of the planets is known – this in turn is a task completed by any astrology program – it is very helpful for the trader to get a graphical representation of the movements of the planets in relation to the price chart of a commodity, stock, futures contract or stock index. If you do not want to draw the lines yourself as W. D. Gann did it in the above example – I recommend using a software to complete the task.
Making the Law Visible with Galactic Trader
There are only a few financial software programs around that can draw planetary price lines and the best and most sophisticated one – in my opinion – is the program Galactic Trader – which was developed by Jeanne Long, and is available from PAS Astro-Soft in Jacksonville, Florida.
W. D. Gann has noted that sometimes a particular planet will provide continued resist or support to a market as it is activated by other planets in aspect to it. A good example of this is the recent price action in the S&P 500 and the planet Mars.
Below I have provided an S&P chart for the period of April to December 2003. The red thick Mars Line is providing resist as it is activated by aspects from other planets on October 16 (Mercury), November 3 (Sun), November 7 (Neptune), November 14 (Venus), December 3 (Venus) and December 15 (Uranus), 2003.
The thin red lines represent the thick red lines moved by exactly 90 points. 90 divides the circle of 360 by 4. Thus we speak of cosmic Mars energies of the 4th harmonic.
Galactic Trader settings in the above chart:
MARS -1 G 90 N
MARS -1 G 90 Y
Knowing the hidden planetary forces would have provided the trader with good reasons to sell and buy the market repeatedly at the Mars line. As you see there is not only one Mars line in effect, but also a second one. The one coming down is the first one MIRRORED across the East-West axis.
Any planet can be MIRRORED along the East-West Axis by simply subtracting its positional degree from 360. This is pure mathematics.
21 becomes 339, 50 becomes 310, 179 becomes 181 and so on. Thus as the non mirrored planetary lines are moving up - along with the movements of the planets, the mirrored planetary lines will move down.
The concept of mirroring perfectly reflects the philosophy of “as above, so below” and its importance cannot be overstated when calculating planetary price lines.
In the Galactic Trader program any planetary line can simply be mirrored by choosing a “Y” instead of a “N” in the edit features of each planetary price line. Further more an aspect research feature will list the most important planetary aspects for a given day.
Planets can be converted to price by taking their position in the Zodiac and applying simple algebra. W. D. Gann used to manually draw the position of the planets on his price charts. Today a software program like Galactic Trader can do that cumbersome task for you and thus make the hidden energies of the planets visible. The concept ”as above so below” can be shown on price charts by mirroring planetary lines.
The energy of the planets will be strongest when planets are in aspect to each other. In this case the energy of the planets will first attract price and later repel price. This process is part of a natural law. W. D. Gann used to refer to this process as the “law of vibration”.
The discovery of how planets attract and repel price enabled W. D. Gann to consistently buy the low and sell the high of the day and gave him a sound idea of where price would trade in the future.
By consistently applying planetary energies to forecasting future prices I have recently made the same discovery. This breakthrough discovery has enabled me to consistently forecast the high and low prices of the day in the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 index during the last month and before and to correctly forecast the direction of the S&P 500 for 12 trading days in a row. The probability of achieving this result is "0.5 to the power of 12" to "1" or less than 1 to 100.
I also offer a mentoring program that will show traders all they need to know to achieve similar results and to get a clear edge on the market.
If you are a trader and if you are not interested in learning geometry and astrology, you can still get a clear edge on the market by subscribing to the Rosecast market letter.
