S&P500 lost 5 points last week. I was also expecting a FLAT market.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of January 02, 2023, to January 06, 2023.
Mercury is the compressed Dasha planet for the period Jan 01 – 05. Mercury occupies the 4th house in the sign Capricorn. It has the company of a benefic planet, Venus. Therefore, during this period, the indexes may go higher.
The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Jan 06 is Ketu. Ketu occupies the 2nd house in the sign Scorpio. It has a weak aspect of weak Jupiter. The market may therefore move lower during this day.
Transits during this week: Sun and Mercury transit through Capricorn during this week. Venus enters Aquarius. Rahu transits Taurus and Ketu Scorpio. Mars is retrograde in Gemini. The Moon moves in Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer. Other planets make many more favorable than unfavorable aspects during the week. This setup can cause the stock market to go higher on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and lower on Friday. The market is closed on Monday.
