Dec 18 – 22, 2023

The S&P500 gained 115 points last week. I was also expecting a higher market. The daily forecast was also quite reasonable.

Here is the expected breakdown for the week of  December 18, 2023, to December 22, 2023.

The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Dec 17 – 18 is the Moon. Moon rules the 2nd house and occupies the 9th house in the sign Aquarius. It makes a square aspect with the Sun and Mars, which makes it slightly malefic. It may therefore produce poor results to cause the market to trade slightly lower

A new monthly solar return chart is applicable from December 19 and will stay effective until January 16. The month lord is the Sun, which occupies the 1st house in the sign Sagittarius. This is a neutral feature. Direct Saturn in the sign Pisces occupies the 4th house. Saturn aspects retrograde Jupiter in Taurus. Saturn also makes a sextile aspect with Mercury. This is a positive factor. The other important planet is Jupiter. Retrograde Jupiter occupies the 6th house in the sign Taurus along with retrograde Uranus. Jupiter aspects retrograde Mercury, present in the 2nd house, closely. This is also a positive feature. Moon occupies the Pisces sign in the 4th house but makes a square aspect with the Sun and Mars occupying the 1st house. This is not a welcome feature. Combining all the features, I find that positive influences are predominant in the monthly chart. This month, therefore, looks slightly positive to me.

The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Dec 19 – 20 is the Jupiter. Jupiter rules the 1st house and occupies the 6th house in the sign Taurus. Saturn aspect it from the 4th house, and it aspects Mercury sitting in the 2nd house. It may therefore produce slightly positive results to cause the market to trade slightly higher

Saturn is the compressed  Dasha planet for the period of  Dec 20 21 – Dec 24 in this monthly chart. Saturn occupies the 4th house in the sign Pisces. It makes sextile aspects with Mercury and Jupiter. Since Saturn is a malefic planet, but makes good aspects, the indexes may not be able to go much higher or lower. 

Transits during this week:  Retrograde Jupiter and Retrograde Uranus continue to transit through Taurus during this week. Rahu is transiting in Aries and Ketu in Libra. Mars and the Sun are transiting through Sagittarius, where the Sun partially combusts Mars. Mercury is retrograde now in the sign Capricorn. Venus, the key planet, has now moved into Scorpio, a sign of its disliking. Saturn is no longer retrograde in the sign Pisces. The moon moves in Pisces, Aries, and Taurus. The Moon moves through the 7th Tithi of the bright half to the 11th Tithi of the bright half. The moon gives good results in these Tithis and these signs. During the week, the Moon makes a trine aspect with the Sun and Mars, while Jupiter and Venus are opposite from each other. Combining the transit and CVD techniques, the following is my estimate of the daily behavior of the stock market.

Monday: Slightly lower;   Tuesday: Slightly lower;   Wednesday: Slightly higher;   Thursday: Higher;   Friday: Slightly higher

Overall, the S&P500 may go Slightly higher during this week.
