Professor Weston's Treatise on 'Forecasting the NYSE'

W.D. Gann is said to have maintained a copy of Professor Weston’s “Forecasting the NYSE” locked in his office safe. Approximately a century later we now have evidence to determine the value of the main insight in this paper.

Main Concept in Professor Weston’s Paper

Professor Weston’s paper indicates that the market may reach significant highs and lows upon the occurrence of significant planetary aspects between Jupiter and Saturn.

Conjunctions and Oppositions Between Jupiter and Saturn

Conjunctions and oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn each take place approximately every 20 years.  Therefore, there are only a handful of examples of each aspect taking place over the past hundred years to see how well they performed.

However, based on the historical aspects that took place, it appears that:

  1. Conjunctions between Jupiter and Saturn historically coincided with significant highs in various securities
  2. The onset of oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn historically coincided with a downturn in the price of various securities.

See the graphs below for a depiction of the performance of various securities relative to the historical occurrence of conjunction and opposition aspects between Jupiter and Saturn.

Other Research Related to Conjunctions Between Jupiter and Saturn

In his book "Gann's Greatest Secret," Al Larson (i.e., "Hans Hannula") wrote that to a large extent Gann "was simply looking for the Jupiter/Saturn cycle in stocks." Anyone familiar with Gann's work knows that he considered far more than one planetary pair, but it appears that this one in particular held special importance for Gann.

Also, a recent research paper by Robert Novy-Marx in the Journal of Financial Economics stated, “the aspect of Jupiter and Saturn also appears to influence investor sentiment, explaining more than 10% of the variation in the Baker-Wurgler [investor] sentiment index.” The white paper’s researches concluded that “Standard predictive regressions fail to reject the hypothesis that…the conjunctions of the planets are significantly related to anomaly performance. These results are striking and surprising.”

The Next Conjunction Between Jupiter and Saturn

The next conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn will take place in 2020 with the aspect becoming exact on December 21, 2020. The date the aspect will become exact also happens to be the day of the winter solstice.

Alignment of the Planets on July 4, 2020

What’s especially interesting about the next conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in 2020 is that it will occur at approximately the same time that all the planets, except Neptune, are aligned together on the same side of the Sun.

Taking Into Account Differences in Planetary Declination

The video below provides an overview of how the difference in declinations between two planets in aspect with each other could impact the strength of a planetary aspect.

Conclusion

Based on this analysis, if Professor Weston’s astro indicator continues to work, it’s possible we could see a long-term market top in 2020.
