The S&P500 lost 46 points last week. I was expecting a higher market.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of February 13, 2022, to February 17, 2023.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Feb 12 – Feb 15 is Jupiter. Jupiter occupies the 12th house in the sign Aries. It rules the 8th house. It may, therefore, give good results. The market may therefore gain slightly during this period.
A new monthly solar return chart begins on February 16 that will remain in effect until March 17, 2023. Jupiter in the sign Aries occupies the 5th house. This is a neutral factor. The key planet, Mars, occupies the 7th house in the Gemini sign, a sign of its enemy Mercury. This is a negative factor. Mars makes no contact with any other malefic planet, which is a plus factor. Jupiter aspects no planet, which is also a neutral factor. This configuration can present some favorable situations. Overall, in my view, this month may be flat for the U.S. stock markets.
Venus is the compressed Dasha planet for the period Feb 16 – 21 in the new monthly chart. Venus occupies the 4th house in the sign Pisces. Therefore, during this period, the indexes may end only slightly higher.
Transits during this week: Mercury and Sun transit through Aquarius during this week. Venus remains in Pisces along with Neptune. Rahu transits Taurus and Ketu Scorpio. The moon moves in Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn. Other planets form more unfavorable aspects than favorable ones during the week. The Moon cycle changes from the downswing to the upswing on February 16. This setup can cause the stock market to go higher on Monday, lower on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and flat on Friday.
