Aug 09 – Aug 13, 2021

S&P500 gained 41 points last week. I was expecting a lower market. 

Here is the expected breakdown of the week of  August 09, 2021 – August 13, 2021.

The compressed Vimshottri Dasha planet for the period  August 08 – August 9 is Mars. Mars occupies the sign Leo and has the company of Venus and the aspect of Saturn. It may therefore produce a negative effect on the stock market and may push the indexes to go lower.

The compressed Vimshottri Dasha planet for the period  August 10 – August 13 is Rahu. Rahu occupies the sign Gemini in the 8th house. It may therefore produce a neutral effect on the stock market and may push the indexes to remain volatile but end flat.

Transits during this week:  Venus and Mars transit Virgo. Venus is thus fallen and Mars is in the sign of its enemy, Mercury. Mercury transit enters its own sign, Virgo. Retrograde Jupiter comes back to Aquarius. Sun and retrograde Saturn stay in their own signs.  Moon transits Virgo and Libra. This setup can cause the stock market to stay flat or go moderately higher. 

Overall, during the current week, the stock market may remain flat or slightly lower.
