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.

7 - 21 0810: Revised Equity ExpO Ts and USO all reversed short 7-20.  Bonds, FXE and Gold remain long. Enjoy...

7 - 19 0750: The ExpO Ts remain mixed: Tech, XLV, VEU, VGK on buys; the rest on sells.  Final work on them to be completed this week.

7 - 18 0800: Lower, lower, lower...

7 - 17 0700: Last week equities reversed higher.  A calm before the Eclipse storm.  This week, and today, early highs, closing lower.

7 - 14 0800: The current equity futures rally will exhaust quickly.  Selling rallies into a lower close.  The budget, et.al., and Eclipse clocks tick...

7 - 13 0750: The waiting game.  Overnight was ok.  Today, equities higher early, weakening soon into lower close.

7 - 12 0730: Yellen put.  Early exits.  Then?  Still will likely be short into 7-14.

7 - 11 0730: Parallel 7/10, but weaker earlier.  USA Reality check soon: Congressional logjams, earnings, indictments,...the totality of the Eclipse.

7 - 10 0800: Equity highs early, into a lower close, and very likely lower week/month, into Oct.  Australian BC's Chris Uhlmann: Yes!

7 -, 7  0740:  A digestion day, with equity weakness later.  Ideally, short into 7/10.  The ExpO trends extend the recent declines.

7 - 6  0750:  Today, equities (much) lower. This Bear will take few prisoners.  Away for bridge until ~1300. 

7 - 5  0750:  Equity highs early, closing lower.  And, Expo T Fast.  It's been 9+mths of work, and "you have potential" is materializing...

7 - 3  0700:  Projecting equity highs by 1100am.  Likely global crisis by the total solar eclipse, Aug 21.

6 - 30 0500:  Away unexpectedly for a funeral all day, out of state.  No statement today.

6 - 29 0730:  Equities remain vulnerable.  As with 6-28: "...decline trend to resume".   LQD to reverse higher soon.

6 - 28 0750:  Stop on open probable.  From 0330, VIX dive.  For now, waiting for the equity decline trend to resume.

6 - 27 0730:  Expo T reversals starting to appear.  Equities: the counter-trend rally is done.  Today, TZA and UVXY likely early, ??hold into 6/28.

6 - 26 0800:  Equities reversed higher during the last 2 weeks.  Today, highs early, then weakening.

6 - 13 through 23:  Aplus hosting issues (non-functional).

6 - 12 0730: Today, lower bias.  6-13, accelerating.  At a critical juncture.  6-14 FED.  This week is full of data impacts.  Redoing Expo T, ETF and  ETVF, probable final version for awhile.  It's taken 8 months to work the Expo Ts this far.  There are infinite variations.  Refinements now work well.

6 - 9  0750:  Today (hints from 6-8), equity highs (minimal) 1st 1-2hrs, then declining, maybe sharply. Bond lows early, then resuming longer rally.

6 - 8  0700:  Of all the am's to play bridge...Buffett and Gates understand...  Comey = a volatile financial markets day, More ~1300 when returning.

6 - 7  0750:  Today, irregular and quiet.  As in the May posting: "Markets seem to be ok with Pence as chief."  However, instability is more likely...

02/17 0700: An illusion (delusion):  DJT policies can ever be funded, much less work.  Awaiting the arrival of the tidal waves of health system, budget, tax, immigration and foreign policy dysfunction.

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

$NYA   04/05/17  1500 Daily.

     The 3/3 chart analysis: "3/1 was probably the IWM high for a long time...".

Same with $NYA. The month since has seen gradual erosion.  Now the chart is primed for the sharper phase.  The 9/25 MACD will go negative, and the longer 16/36 will follow.  The negative WMA trends will accelerate.  The immediate drop is to 11200.  Projection: <9300 =  >20% decline by year end.

5 - 16   NYSE       ExpO T (ET),   ExpO T Fast (ETF),   ExpO T Slow (ETS)       5/16/16 - 5/16/17

      ET, ETF and ETS are unique oscillators.  As of the 5-16 close, ET Fast  prior thrusts below Zero were 3-6 to 3-14-17, similar to 7-25 to 8-4-16.  There are now 3 lower highs, and 2 lower lows with another (<-100) projected into Jun.

      5 - 17  The Forecast:  Accelerating equity declines, with both ET and ETS ending below Zero (into Oct).

Equity values will likely drop 20+%.  The statistical odds favor using Inverse equity ETFs as investments/hedges.

      ExpO T is a composite of Exponential Oscillators and EO Sums.  It is zeroed, with a range of +1200 to -1200.
