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 wellness, 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.

SOMC Purposes:   08/28/18

1)  Publish statistically sound Planetary cycles studies, whether positive or negative correlations

2)  Utilize 30yrs of Astro and Trading experience

3)  Demonstrate ExpO Z and ExpO XX as effective trading tools



10/8-9-10-11  0700:  Sustained global equity Bear activity.

10/4  0700:  10-4.   Maybe it is "over & out" from today, for equities
9/26  1400:  Volatility:  "Times, they are a changin..."

9/25       Volatility almost non-existent...

9/13 1400:  UVXY (VIX) is basing = equities to decline, ~Feb 2018 and then some.  An "Event" (Minsky) is due.

9/7 0750: Job cuts trending higher, NFP -50k revisions.  US begins Bear  8/30.  VEU, VGK, VWO Bear from 6/22.

9/6 0900: Year 2022: Up for auction: DJT's 1st orange jump suit, signed, but faded. Tried to wash it; wouldn't come clean.

9/4  0730:  suggesting ~July 1998 (currency) & ~Sep 1929 (extended leverage, debt, trade with tighter FED)

8/30      IT has to start sometime, aka Aug 1929.  The unraveling begins: both political and economic, globally.
8/28      VEU, VGK & VWO are continuing Bears (6/22/18).  & Coming soon to a major index near you,...

8/14      Equities at risk now for several 5% declines into Dec.

8/8   0900:  Global currencies & equities destabilizing.  Eclipse on DJT and Jup/Sat waning 45 aspect, among others.
7/31      "All the President's Men."    Madoff: "I'm surprised I got away with it so long."    Manafort, ?...

1 - 30 0700:  The eventual 2020-2022+ Depression seems like a vacuous vapor at present  It is on the horizon, however.

1 - 26:  USD usually requires 2+ weeks to form its base, then rally (into a bull...).


The TAO:      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 social stability

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

01/23/17:    The W.H.O. ICD-10 Dx Manual:  The US Pres = 5 major Personality disorders: 1) Narcissistic, 2) Histrionic,

                     3) Emotionally Unstable, 4) Paranoid and 5) Dissocial  6) Impulsive              DJT is a global risk.           "Con Don". 

                     DJT's  Dx's are entrenched for life.  For DJT, all "perceived" threats become "real", and are attacked.  Early dementia probable.

Preface to Exponential Oscillator Charts

            Daily charts use bi-daily data.           Hourly use ct 0830, 0930, 1030, 1130, 1230, 1330, 1430, 1455.

      98+% of ExpO C values range between +/- 500. 

      The zero line identifies trends, and trends continue until a reversal ~+/- 100 is sustained.   When ExpO C exceeds ~+/- 200 then another guideline is to use the average of the previous 2 pivots for a reversal value.

ExpO Z >< +/- 300  are extreme values and short term reversals are expected.

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

                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.
