The S&P, the Natural Year, and Pluto
      Chaos Clinic for 4/23/2021

This chart shows the S&P futures since mid March. After a dip into a 3/26 low,
The S&P has rallied sharply. The rally is very strong, as evidenced by the rainbow
of EXMAs, of 1.5, 3, 6, 12, and 24 days.

The spring equinox is considered the start of the natural year. Early futures
traders; such as WD Gann, used it as the start of an important trading cycle.
This was especially true in the grains, since spring was planting time. One
simple way to use the natural year is to try to trade only near the equinoxes
and solstices, looking for seasonal swings.

Because of Moon cycles, this seasonal low may be offset from the exact equinox. In the S&P
this year, the actual low was 6 days after the equinox. The 3/26 low was a spike low,
foreshadowing the strength of the rally.

The Full Moon occurred over the weekend on Sunday 3/28/2021. One common trading practice is to
look for swings from Full Moon to New Moon to Full Moon, etc. This Moon cycle is not
perfect, but shows up well enough that it keeps being rediscovered. This chart
shows one such Moon cycle. The second full Moon is on Monday. 4/26/2021.

These natural cycles interact with the natal chart of a market. The S&P futures started
trading 4/21/1982. The dip into 4/21/2021 is the "birthday dip" of the S&P.
This interaction of natural and natal cycles is the basis of my XGO forecasts and the
WinXGO program.

One of the more interesting interactions currently is between heliocentric Pluto and natal
Pluto. They currently form a perfect square. This exact aspect makes the Pluto electric
field flux lines useful support and resistance vibration levels. This is shown by the
white horizontal lines. The aspects used are the 8th harmonic. This use is again based on
the seasonal cycle, which gives 4, and the midpoints, which gives eight. Our human holidays
tend to follow the seasonal cycle and its midpoints. So it is natural to observe
the cycles in markets.

and the chat room comments from this Chaos Clinic. Most recent comment is on top.

4/23/2021 1:58:34 PM MT qq:: Also the XTides2Plus seem to support this topish view
4/23/2021 1:57:50 PM MT qq:: From Cobra market blog: Need see more bars, still 50% chances of double top here.
4/23/2021 1:52:41 PM MT qq:: Bought 1 SPY put shortly after the peak to hold till Monday.
4/23/2021 11:59:14 AM MT qq:: Love that one with all creat Al
4/23/2021 10:40:54 AM MT Al****:: In parting, I'd like to suggest an exercise. Get up every morning and watch the Sun rise. Connect with all creation, and tell yourself "I am one with all creation." And give thanks that you have another day. Then do something with it.
4/23/2021 10:36:10 AM MT Al****:: OK, getting dull, so I'm going to call it quits. I had a nice long on since early AM and cashed it in for 30 points. May be more but at the end of a long week I'll take it. Thanks for coming. See you next week. Take some coures.
4/23/2021 10:22:23 AM MT Al****:: where computers do well is not being emotional, needing sleep, or getting impatient
4/23/2021 10:18:25 AM MT Al****:: most trading is already computerized
amazingly it makes the astro physics work better because the algos basically follow the energy flow
I've watched AI for decades, even build several neural networks
and studied Larry Pesavento's Tomahawk forecasting system, whcih he shared in case I could improve it
They all just find energy patterns and forecast them, but without any model of the underlyhing physics
they work superbly on large data sets like images with constrains, like faces
They do not do well with chaotic systems

my preference is RI - Real Intelligence
4/23/2021 10:06:56 AM MT TG****:: Artificial Intelligence, all algos all the time, that is.
4/23/2021 9:54:29 AM MT TG****:: Al, would it all (the energy events) still work if AI took over virtually all of the trading decisions.
4/23/2021 9:50:23 AM MT Al****:: note on chart 3 on the SPKISS page that the bars turned white even before the normal session
4/23/2021 9:42:19 AM MT Al****:: note on the Secret->esnat72 chart that the pivot was almost on top of the magenta vibration early. The Flash Boy computers bought the pivot and pushed prices above R1. May pull back to it.
4/23/2021 9:27:02 AM MT Al****:: then the natural time about 9:40 added energy
it's all an incredibly complex set of energy events
4/23/2021 9:22:23 AM MT Al****:: the low near 8:30 was the Exchange passing Jupiter within a few minutes
then the Moon T180 timeline just after the outcry open kicked in the afterburner
4/23/2021 9:16:16 AM MT kwc:: Super work Al!!
4/23/2021 9:00:17 AM MT TG****:: 15/20 turn up on the 8:54 was on the 24 hour chart. the dip into that timing and turn up was not so apparent on the 8:15 to 16:15 spliced
4/23/2021 8:58:11 AM MT TG****:: Al, the 24 hour chart showed a distinct tide time at 8:54 (precise inflection point in the raw data). 15/20 crossed up shortly thereafter. the green swan lifted it off, too.
4/23/2021 8:49:41 AM MT Al****:: note that the red -Tide correctly forecast this rally
this is fascinating because the MoonTides are computed without using any market data. They are a calculation of the interaction of the physical system with the natal chart of the S&P. They can be computed for any time in the future. I compute them twice a year. I have to compute them due to jumping back and forth between normal and daylight time. But for that, I would just compute them once for a century and call it good
4/23/2021 8:10:01 AM MT kwc:: It's uncanny how well it works now with these settings.
4/23/2021 8:08:24 AM MT kwc:: I now use an 8 day look-back in my software settings thanks to you. Astrophysics, Yay!!
4/23/2021 8:05:22 AM MT Al****:: see MoonTides And Black Swan, linked on the right side of ListOfCharts page
4/23/2021 8:02:45 AM MT Al****:: and on the Chaos Clinic page note the green swan electric field flux line
4/23/2021 8:00:39 AM MT Al****:: also note on Secret->esnat72 the 1-2-3-4 now in 5 pattern
4/23/2021 7:59:27 AM MT Al****:: you are welcome - it is all in the Market Aztrophysics
4/23/2021 7:56:48 AM MT kwc:: Thanks Al
4/23/2021 7:07:58 AM MT Al****:: today note on the SPSunMoon chart the vertical yellow Moon timelines. Today the T+180 is near the outcry open and the T+270 is near the close.
This is a "two Moon day." they are often volatile and one way or move from Moon-Noon-Moon.
4/23/2021 6:51:21 AM MT Al****:: Good Morning visitors. Welcome to the Chaos Clinic. The written Chaos Clinic is on the AUX page.

This site has a lot of charts,
so you may find it useful to have several of them available within your
browser. If you have a tabbed browser, you can open separate charts
in separate tabs by right clicking on any link, and selecting "open in new tab"
from the menu. The main list of site pages is at
Recommended pages to watch are SPKISS, MTRainbow, and Chat.
For astro stuff, add SPSunMoon, Wheel, and Chaos Clinic.
A special set of Dr. Al's research charts are on the Secret page.

Comments in the chat room are announced by a
"duck call" noise. This noise also occurs when the sofware detects a
resonant hex pattern on the Wheel page. MoonTide trading tutorials
are on the right side of the ListOfCharts page. One should
read Trading the MoonTide Tutorial and Keep it Simple as a minimum.

Many subcribers do not strictly trade the MoonTides, but use the charts on this
site as input to their own trading strategies. For example, the bottom chart on the SPKiss page is good starting point for swing traders.

Also on this site is the Certified Chaos Trader's Room. That room is open
to graduates of my 4 main courses. See -> Courses for details.
