Bradley Siderograph

Questions and Answers for Wednesday August 14, 2018

Compatibility with Apple Computers

  • Question: When are you going to have the program (e.g., Bradley Bars Dashboard, Advanced Astro Dashboards, etc.) adapted for Apple users?
  • Answer: I was able to open the latest version of these Dashboards on an Apple computer, and they appear to be working fine just as they do on a PC.  Therefore, if you are using the latest Apple/Microsoft Excel software on your Apple computer, the Dashboards should now be "adapted for Apple users."

Gann's COE and MOF

  • Question: Is this any better than the COE or MOF that Gann used?
  • Answer: There are different ways in which Gann used COE and MOF.  That being said, see below for the correlation between various securities and:
    • Cycle of Eight (COE) - Average longitude of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto
      • Heliocentric (from the Sun's perspective)
      • Geocentric (from the Earth's perspective)
    • Mean of Five (MOF) - Average longitude of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto
      • Heliocentric
      • Geocentric
  • Depending on the security or securities you follow as well as your timeframe, certain data points for Gann's COE and MOF have had a higher correlation than the Bradley Siderograph indicators, and some have had a lower correlation.  You can compare these correlations by clicking on the red buttons below.

Correlations for the Bradley Siderograph Indicators

Length of Time Working with the Bradley Siderograph

  • Question: Just curious, how long have you been following/working on the Bradley model.
  • Answer: I first put together an Excel version of the Bradley Siderograph in 2014, and I followed the Bradley model for a year or two before that.

How to Become a Member

  • Question: How can I become a Member?
  • Answer: The last week in August an offer will be made available to become a Member in the initial launch of the premium Members Only area. This will likely take place on or around August 23rd.

How to Decide Which Bradley Siderograph Indicator to Use

  • Question: There are many variations of Bradley's predictions including Long Terms, Middle Terms, Declinations, and the Bradley Siderograph itself. How do you decide which of these indicators to focus on prospectively with respect to Turn Dates, etc.?
  • Answer:
    • With respect to the Bradley Siderograph and its three underlying elements, overall I tend to focus the most on the Long Terms.
    • This indicator has had a relatively high correlation with certain securities historically. Also, I am more interested in longer-term changes in trend, and among the Bradley Siderograph components the Long Terms are the most closely tied to long term changes in trend.
    • Past performance is no guarantee of future results, correlation is not causation, and it is highly unlikely that any one indicator will always work.  However, if there is a consistent historical pattern of a security changing direction upon the occurrence of a Long Terms Turn Date there could be a connection between the two.

Ingresses of Planets into Signs

  • Question:If I’m correct, the original Bradley model didn’t use ingresses of planets into signs. Do you use this technique ? If so what weight would you give it ?Larry Pesavento addressed this issue, and my observation is sometimes they seem to have really interesting timing (for example ingress of Mars into Sagittarius on January 27, 2018 – two days before selloff).
  • Answer:
    • In his book "Stock Market Prediction," Donald Bradley acknowledged that certain planets exert "strong influences by virtue of sign transits alone."
    • In 2014 I performed an analysis into the impact Jupiter moving through the signs had on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).  I chose Jupiter because it is the largest planet in the solar system, and I chose the DJIA because of the very significant price history (i.e., over 100 years of price data available).
    • Based on my analysis using data through approximately the first half of 2014, the DJIA has frequently experienced weakness in the first 72 days after Jupiter enters Leo.
    • I last edited the Excel file in which I performed this analysis on July 7, 2014.  About a week later Jupiter entered Leo on July 15, 2014.  Here's historical price information for the DJIA for the first 72 days after Jupiter entered Leo:
      • The DJIA declined slightly more than 4% between its 1st and 18th day in Leo in 2014.
      • However, 72 days after entering Leo the DJIA was approximately unchanged at 0.91%.
    • See below for a graph that summarizes the DJIA's historical performance during the first 72 days of Jupiter entering Leo.
