Update April 21, 2013



The US indexes finally started to decline as of April 11. Please note the decline might be over by the full moon and moon eclipse of April 25. Please allow an orb of 3 trading days.
As said before, April 25 (plus of minus 3 trading days) is a strong candidate for a cycle end and a new primary cycle might begin. This will mean the US indexes will have only 2 weeks of decline, which is a bit short.
Please find below the astrological events for April 2013. Please note the cluster of moon events around April 25.

Update April 11, 2013

The US indexes are still making new highs after the expected turn date March 29th (+/- 3 trading days). The S&P500, Nasdaq and Dow Jones put new highs yesterday and this is not what I like to see. The CAC40, FTSE100 and DAX topped around March 15, the day that Mars entered its home sign and cardinal sign of Aries.

So the question is: are we still in the primary cycle that started November 16th 2012 or has a new primary cycle started somewhere. Some cycle analysts are in doubt whether a new cycle started on February 26 or not. I am not convinced that this is the case, and would like to stay with my view that we are still in the primary cycle that started November 16th 2012. For the European markets you could say that a new cycle has started. For the US indexes, I don’t think so. And as I use to say: when in doubt, look at the FTSE. This index shows behavior that is somewhere between the US and European markets. In the FTSE, I see even less proof of a cycle bottom on February 27 than in the US indexes. Another argument is that the European indexes lost a lot of the gains they made between March 26 and April 15th.

So what now? As long as the European indexes remain under their level of April 2/3, I think we are still at the end and declining part of the current cycle that started on November 16th 2012. For the DAX, this level is at 7953 and for the CAC40 this is 3810. Now the US indexes should make a high and start to drop VERY SOON if my view is still valid.
