The S&P500 gained 33 points last week. I was also expecting a slightly higher market. The daily forecast was off this time.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of December 25, 2023, to December 29, 2023.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Dec 25 – 28 is the Mercury. Mercury rules the 10th house and occupies the 2nd house in the sign Capricorn. It is retrograde and Jupiter aspects it from the sixth house. It may therefore produce good results to cause the market to trade slightly higher.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Dec 29 – 30 is the Ketu. Ketu occupies the 11th house in the sign Libra. It is a malefic planet and is not under the influence of any benefic planet. It may therefore cause the market to trade slightly 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 and moves into Sagittarius. 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 Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. The Moon moves through the 14th Tithi of the bright half to the 4th Tithi of the dark half. The moon gives mixed results in these Tithis and these signs. During the week, the Moon makes a trine aspect with the Venus and Neptune, while Jupiter aspects Sun. Combining the transit and CVD techniques, the following is my estimate of the daily behavior of the stock market.
Monday: Closed; Tuesday: Slightly lower; Wednesday: Lower; Thursday: Higher; Friday: Slightly lower.
