S&P500 gained 15 points last week. I was also expecting a flat/slightly higher market.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of August 08, 2022, to August 12, 2022.
The compressed Vimshottri Dasha planet for the period Aug 07 – 10 is Jupiter. Jupiter rules the 12th and 3rd houses and occupies the 4th house in Aries. It aspects Mercury. Therefore, the indexes may gain during these days.
The compressed dasha for Aug 11 -16 is Saturn. Saturn rules the second house and occupies the 2nd house. It may therefore give slightly good results. The market may move slightly higher during the second part of the week.
Transits during this week: Venus moves into Leo during the last day of the week but is far enough from Sun to be combust. Sun is transiting in Leo, while Mercury moves into Virgo. Mars transits in Taurus. Rahu transits Taurus and Ketu Scorpio. They make a square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. The moon moves in Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius during the week. The moon makes three trine aspects at the beginning of the week but ends in Aquarius, where it conjuncts Saturn. This setup can cause the stock market to go higher in the first half and flat in the second half.
