Transit Aspect Oscillator  A Global (personal) Psychological and Economic Indicator

       TAO 9 Applications:

        To the best of my knowledge, from Donald Bradley's efforts in the 1960's to the present time, there has not been a published astronomical oscillator correlating real-time with global stock indexes as the TAO 9 does. The study of the mathematical nature of the TAO  and its correlations with multiple realms of human activities has the potential to become a new field of scientific endeavor.
       The three TAO values (short, intermediate, and long term) and trends have statistical reliability and significance, and, therefore, probable predictive value  relative to global stock prices.  The creation of the TAO oscillators has been a 30 year project.   
       The rise and fall of global psychological optimism and pessimism correlate with the rise and fall of global wealth, as measured by stock prices. When the TAO 9 is below zero and falling, fear and pessimism dominate, manifesting in stock market declines.  When the TAO 9 is above zero and rising, happiness and optimism dominate, synchronistic, statistically, with rising stock market prices.  
      SOMC combines the TAO 9's intrinsic value with 25+ years of  technical market analysis and developing technical trading systems to time the price movements of the stock and commodity markets effectively.
      The graph of the aspectarian (that assigns positive and negative numbers to every degree of planetary pair angular separation) is not shown.  This graph (not shown) happens to validate some traditional astrological tenets on the nature of aspects. The TAO 9, however, is strictly astronomical and mathematical.  SOMC uses both the TAO 9 and relatively simple mechanical models to time and trade  intermediate and long term.

NOTES...                                                                                                                                              Previous notes on Trading Notes Hx

12/08 0720:  Mea culpa.  The errors nudged me to refine the Expo 0.  Expo 1 was an initial, and inadequate attempt.  ASAP I will post a slightly revised Expo 0 (the reversal warning), with its Filter value (the trigger).  Also, ideally, a Sector synopsis 5/16-present for Expo 0 with filter for:  1) Equities NYA, NASX, DJT, IWM, QQQ, SPY, XLF, XLV, VEU, VGK, XIV    2) XIV alone    3) Bonds  TLT, HYG, LQD trio    4) Currency FXE, UUP duo 5) Gold GLD    6) Oil USO.  It's been an unexpected, quixotic, grueling, and now close to rewarding adventure.  12/7 typified exhaustion, especially for XIV.  So until the equity ETFs normalize short, the XIV Expo XVF signal (short 12/7) will be used, and gradually lengthened into XF, then Expo 0.

Also an entire 18 ETF portfolio performance from 5/16-present...a fair amount of work. 

12/07 0710:  12/06, the likely intraday equity highs.  Most of the equity ETFs remain short, some reversed long, 2 never sold = mixed, with a bias lower.  By end Dec, the Expo Oscillator table will be completed, and a 2nd Expo value table begun.  For now, the Expo's are Long FXE, GLD, IEF, and Short Equities, UUP, USO, probably into late Dec.

12/06 0705:  Today, a higher/neutral open, then trending lower.  Simplifying Expo 0 vs Expo 1.  By end Dec, completed.

12/05 0750:  Resolving the Expo 0 vs 1 dilemma.  For today, higher early, sustainable into the close.  12/6 more probable for lower.

12/02 0740:  NFP neutral. Equity Expo's remain in a continuing decline into/through 12/9+.

12/01 0740:  10min XIV is still long, hence the futures rally.  Sustained <43.25 will trip short.  Today, higher early, then declining into lower close.

11/30 0750:  Expo being tested today into NFP by adversity.  New Expo trends solidify one by one.  ADP strong.  FED raise definite. 

11/29 0740:  Trend reversals are upon 4 sectors: new Shorts   Equities, USD    new Longs  Euro, US/German Bonds.  (Gold mixed at present, but has a bias Long).  Expo 0's have reversed.  Expo 1's very close.  All at extremes.  1 of 2 outcomes: a 2-3wk correction, or an extended reversal.  Only time will tell, and the Expo's will move with the markets.  The reversals imply a weak NFP, and that the FED rate rise is factored in.

11/28  0730:  A battle of the Expo's is on.  I am transitioning from Expo 0 to Expo 1.  The additional E1 component was needed from day 1, and took time to format.  As with the TAO's, there are an infinite number of Expo's. The work has been simplifying those down to 7, unique yet reliable Expos.

Today (and this whole week) is becoming very likely for the initial equity trend change.  Also coming soon are the NFP and FED...

11/25  0730:  Expo has an additional new fundamental component (final??) now that data entry/format is almost completed.  Bottom line, NYSE came close to, but has not yet, signaled a sell.  The Expo NYSE values posted will be changed this am.  Also a new Expo graph will be posted by 11/28.  While I upgrade today into 11/28, today the old Expo is being used, and both NYSE, IWM and XIV very fast remain short.  Lower closes likely.

11/23  0700:  The bullish bias into Thxgiving won.  More Expos reversed over 11/21-22.  More possible today, but generally quiet.

11/22  0700:  NYSE: most reliable is not always.  The other US indexes are long. Today, likely higher open, and still short into a lower close.

11/21  0720:  NYSE is in the minority of equity ETF/Indexes short.  NYSE, however, is the most reliable.  The chart technicals are mixed, with IWM still in an exhaustion sell island.  All MAs are compressing.  The red TAO above is forecasting a 2+/-wk decline, then a year end rally to new highs.  The experience from the 5/16 initiation of Expo is to use the NYSE as the basis signal.  Hence, until it reverses long, all equity rallies can be sold.

11/18  0730:  The ETF reversal influx is upon us.  NYSE needs only a little nudge.  And, today, of all days, I am attending a funeral service.  Leaving about 1000, and away 'til post close.  If NYSE hasn't reversed at 0930, I'll post the 1430 criteria. Today, equities eroding to a lower close.

11/17  0740:  Many of the 19 ETF Expos (equity) will likely reverse short today. The NYSE price is posted above. After the open I am away until 1300.

The Expo being used is only a best guess 1st version.  Over time, refinements will be introduced.  For now, enjoy...

11/16  0750:  IWM completed an ideal 2 day island exhaustion gap 11/15 = a reversal sell.  Other indexes to decline now.  Major.

11/15  0750:  The NYSE Expo is near 300, a level which usually stalls or reverses the price rise. The IWM:SPY ratio is weakening pre-market.  It remains likely that NYSE Expo will reverse 11/16-17.  The 16 Expo's and 8 Expo VF's (very fast) formatting and data loading continues...  The astro TAO chart above has correlated well with equities since 5/16.  As soon as possible, I'll post TAO with at least a month lead time.

11/14  0750:  If NYSE>10550 x2, Expo stays long.  Today, early highs; holding Expo very fast short into later am.  NYSE close slightly lower.

11/11  0750:  If NYSE>10580 x2 (0930,1430), Expo stays long.  Equities today, greater selling later, into 11/14.  Loading more Expos,...soon.

TAO 9 :   Brief TAO 9 summary and TAO 8 Graph

    The TAO 8 correlated with the SP 500, 1/1/1980 through 08/31/2014 PPMC is p < .0001, >1:10,000 against chance.    

          Pearson Product-Moment Correlation for TAO 8 and SP 500:   n=3602,   r=+0.48, p < .0001, which means that the TAO 8 correlated positively with the SP 500, both rising and falling, greater than 1:10,000 against chance.  This strength of correlation implies a causal mechanism, which is yet unknown.  As a comparison, to be very sure that the long sought after Higgs boson had been found, scientists used a 1:10,000 confidence level: p <.0001.  Current modern physics has no viable mechanism for explaining the TAO 8 results.  That is for future generations.

    TAO 9 Transiting Aspect Oscillator is a compilation of four fundamental primary concepts and functions:

1)  An Aspectarian based upon the weighted harmonics of the numbers 2 and 3, which gives positive/negative values to the transiting angular separation of each planetary pair

2)  The selection of 25 specific transiting planetary pairs used in the TAO 8 calculations

3)  Mathematical summations of those Aspectarian values (both exponential and unique astro averages) to generate the Quick TAO, Slow TAO and TAO 9

4)  Zeroing those summations over the selected time frames to create scientifically applicable oscillators


     The TAO 9 is a 100% mathematical, quantitative, zeroed oscillator that can be compared to real world, real time realms of human life.  The TAO 8 happens to highly correlate with the Global equities markets, and other financial, social and political measures.   The TAO 8 is a Directional Astronomical Indicator.

     As TAO 9 rises, Global Psychology tends to rise and equities/assets tend to gain value reliably (1:10,000 against chance).  When the TAO 9 falls, Global Psychology declines, pessimism emerges, and equities/assets tend to fall in value.


TAO 8: 1/ 1/ 1997 to 3/ 31/ 2014    Vertical is yearly/quarterly.

                TAO 8, red. Quick TAO, blue. Slow TAO, orange.  SP 500, black. SP 500, BLS Inflation Adjusted, light black and the lowest equity cycle on the graph.

8/ 11/ 14:   The TAO 8 is a zeroed oscillator, now falling from its highest peak, yet for all of early 2014 favors optimism. All declines have been brief and bought.  The Russell 2000, frequently a trend leader, has shown the greatest weakness.  And now with the steepening TAO 8 decline will come increased pessimism, depressing events, social unrest, political instability and asset vulnerability.  The 2015 season will favor selling equity rallies.

The TAO 9: An astro economic indicator, similar to but distinct from the Bradley model

     1)  100% objective, mathematical, astronomic and scientific Transiting Aspect Oscillator

     2)  A real-time, directional astro indicator, now with more than 1:10,000 significance

             a) TAO 9 high/rising brings optimism, raises equities, asset values and stability

             b) TAO 9 low/falling activates pessimism, erodes assets and adds social instability

11/16 0600:    At present, using these posted NYSE values/signals is the most reliable guide.


     Expo signals vary from days to weeks: average currently 10 days, based on 0930&1430 (x2 daily) data input.

     Expo Fast uses the most dynamic component of Expo.  Expo Very Fast uses x8 hourly data input. The x8 EVF rules are not set yet.
     There is no "track record" other than what is posted. The theoretical framework is sound.  Expo is a new invention at work, in progress, real time.

SPY 11/04/16  1500 Close, 121min chart.

     "Comey one, Comey all..." and enjoy the sharp, sustained rally.  Expo will Reverse Long today, with 0930 being likely.  This 121min chart (4 data/day) was ready to rally when the FBI FIBbed and Flubbed.  SPY rises to beyond 216.50 (upper 2.0 BB) and $SPX exceeds 2170, by end Nov and probably much sooner.  A 5-10% rally, unleveraged, likely new highs for all indexes.
