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

09/26  0740:  Expo has been a consuming creative effort over the last month.  It is now in workable condition.  After the initial insight in 1988, and a preliminary addition in the early 90's, further expansion with the TAO work, ema's and ama's have now been combined into an accurate oscillator.  There will eventually be a separate page(s) for Expo. The track record starts with 5/16/16 NYSE model.  No history.  Just solid theory...

09/23  0740:  Introducing Exposit:  EXPonential OscillatorS  In Trading.  Theoretically, Exposit is a new technical timing tool,

applicable to all markets in all time frames.  Focusing this am is to post an Expo, for the NYSE index.  Equities today: random early, lower close.

09/22  0740:  The 2 primary Osc models have been on buys.  So there was a mea culpa.  Closer to posting the Osc, as well as to sell signals. 

09/21  0740:  Equities hopefully will rally further post-FED.  Very likely to be short by 1400 today.

09/20  0740:  The Osc models remain short term trendless--no position likely throughout the day, into the 9/21 FED.

09/19  1400:  The Osc models are now mixed--the shorter term, long, and the longer term, short.  Remaining flat into 9/20; meandering is most likely.

09/16  1330:  This equity rally will probably V peak (inverted) on 9/21-22 (SP 2180).

1000:  The OSC models remain on a buy, probably into 9/19.  Today, another exit possible.

0930:  My computer system seemed to install updates successfully, then glitched.  Now, probably resolved.

09/15 0600:  Will be gone all day to court for the murder accomplice hearings.  The OSC models indicate an equity rally of 1-3%, unknown duration.  Any equity rally intact at 1030 will sustain it.  All of the primary SP sectors (XLF,XLK,XLV,XLP,XLY) are primed to rally.  So are almost all of the major Global sectors (EWA,EWC,EWG,EWJ,EWS,EWU...near lower daily 2.0 BBs or support ma's.  Soon, a sustained TZA position will be entered.

09/14 0740:  Overnight, improving. Positions ok.  Today, irregularly higher into the US equity close.

09/13 0740:  Over the next few days, higher equity lows, and lower highs, resolving in a 10-20% breakdown, continuing lower into 2017.

09/12 0740:  2 days of irregularities, rumors and gyrations = choppy.

09/09 0740:  Historically unprecedented Global CB policies...a volatile (debt leveraged) experiment...sometimes there are now...

09/08 0740:  Adding an anti-grind model component.  Today, ECB gave the FED rate rise room.  9/8-9-12+ lower.  9/12&19 weeks, sharply lower.

09/07 0740:  My models perform worst in a grinding higher environment = the last 2 months.  Incur the losses (or no gain) and keep applying them...

09/06 0740:  Today, a higher equity open, weaker than 9/2, then more rapidly declining.  At the cliff's edge...

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 PPRC 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

SPX Daily  8/19/16 1500:   Trend change lower Imminent.


     This SP 500 chart has the extended (5wks) feature of essentially unchanged, with the lowest 5wk range in memory.  To state the obvious, this will change.  Likely, a 10+% equity slide soon.

     The 9/1 Solar Eclipse is one major factor, replete with hard aspects.  For the SE USA, a major hurricane landfall is almost likely, added to the Louisiana disastrous flooding (the Lunar Cap ingress with both Jupiter & Neptune).  The Eclipse will coincide with multiple, major global "events".

     In the SPX chart below, the BBs are almost maximally narrowed (trend likely to initiate).  A lower BB breakout (2157) is probable, then extending to/beyond 2135, the 64ema/49ama pair.  The 169ema near 2077 is relatively important support, only temporarily recently broken post Brexit, and is a primary target for the next few weeks.  The 9/25 MACD is prepped to plunge.  Increased Volatility for the 8/22 week+.

       Evolving all week:  1) Equity EMA Oscillators  2) ETF Technical charts  3)  Astro TAO charts

8/10: Astro is reliable longer term (mths-yrs) for equities (real-time for people).  Equities only partially represent the current global human condition (TAO 10). TAO 10 weakens into Sep/Oct 2016: the psychological and local equity lows.

    Transit Aspect Oscillator TAO, an astro scientific index.  Transit aspects as they affect global psychology, mundane events, and economics.  There is a Global financial/political traumatic restructuring in progress.  Global equities peaked 2015-16:    Global GDPs decelerating (negative starting Q3 2016??).  Deflation dominant.  US/German Bonds stable.

    9/19:  Beginning Monday 9/19, a New x3 Oscillator and Daily Index charts (both technical), updated at least weekly. 

    8/17:  Equities: Eclipse 9/1.  8/15 high, then Sep/Oct 10-20+% lower.  A Clinton election rally into Jan 2017.

             This Solar Eclipse will have major, negative global impacts, with many hard (2nd/4th/8th harmonic) aspects.
