The S&P500 gained 68 points last week. I was expecting a higher market too. However, the daily forecast was slightly off.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of February 12, 2024, to February 16, 2024.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Feb 08 – Feb 11 is Saturn. Saturn rules the 7th house and occupies the 8th house in the sign Pisces. Saturn is a naturally malefic planet. Its presence in a Thrik house makes it more malefic. But it makes a sextile aspect with Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury. It may therefore produce less negative results to cause the market to trade slightly lower.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Feb 12 – Feb 16 is the Mercury. Mercury rules the 2nd house and occupies the 6th house in the sign Capricorn. It makes a trine aspect with Jupiter and a sextile aspect with Saturn. It may therefore produce neutral to slightly positive results to cause the market to remain flat.
Transits during this week: Jupiter and Uranus continue to transit through Taurus during this week. No planet is retrograde now which is a positive feature. Rahu is transiting in Aries and Ketu in Libra. Mercury moves into Aquarius to join the Sun. Venus continues to transit in Capricorn, but Mars moves on to Aquarius on Tuesday. Saturn and Neptune are moving in the sign Pisces. The moon moves in Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. The Moon moves through the 3rd Tithi of the bright half to the 8th Tithi of the bright half. The moon gives poor results in these Tithis, although it does like these signs. During the week, Jupiter makes a square aspect with Mars. 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: Lower; Thursday: Flat; Friday: Flat.
