The S&P500 lost 14 points last week. I was expecting a higher market. My daily forecast was also off this week. Perhaps, I underestimated the combustion of Venus.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of August 14, 2023, to August 18, 2023.
Saturn is the compressed Dasha planet for the period of August 10 – 14 in the monthly chart. Saturn rules the 9th house and occupies the 10th house in the sign Aries. It makes an opposite aspect with Mars. The indexes may go slightly lower during these days.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for August 15 – 18 is Mercury. Mercury rules the 4th house and occupies the 3rd house in the sign Leo. It makes a square aspect with Jupiter and a conjunction with Moon. It may therefore produce only slightly bad results to cause the market to go slightly lower.
Transits during this week: Jupiter and Uranus continue to transit through Taurus during this week. Mercury and Mars are in Virgo and Saturn is retrograde in Pisces. Sun is strong in Leo and Venus is moving backward in the same sign. Venus continues to be combust. Rahu moves in Aries and Ketu in Libra. The moon moves in Cancer, Leo, and Virgo. The Moon moves through the 14th of the dark half to the 2nd Tithis of the bright half. The moon gives poor results in these Tithis. The conjunction of the Moon and Venus in Leo is positive for the market, but the combustion of Venus is negative. Combining the transit and CVD techniques, the following is my estimate of the daily behavior of the stock market.
Monday: Flat; Tuesday: Flat; Wednesday: Lower; Thursday: Flat; Friday: Lower.
