How to Mimic the Turn Dates for Gann's 1929 Annual Stock Forecast

Question

  • How might I use your tools to identify the planets (and weights) that would mimic the turn dates for Gann's 1929 Annual Stock Forecast?

Answer

  • Without us knowing the specific weights Gann used, there would be a significant amount of judgment involved in re-creating Gann's 1929 forecast.
  • However, Excel's Solver could be used to approximate Gann's forecast as closely as possible.
  • Next month's "New Technique" will include an overview of how to use Excel's Solver and the Create Your Own Siderograph tool to approximate Gann's forecast including a summary of which set of weights leads to the highest correlation with Gann's forecast.

Interpretation of Correlations in the Advanced Astro Dashboards

Question

  • When a correlation is identified for a planetary aspect - what is the correlation of?
    For example: for a Mercury/Pluto Trine, the correlation is +2.4%.

Answer

  • For the Advanced Astro Dashboards, the correlation listed for a planetary aspect refers to the actual historical correlation between the planetary aspect and the security's historical price movement.
  • The idea is that we want to identify whether the security has historically tended to increase or decrease as each planetary aspect has taken place historically.
  • For example, if a security has historically tended to increase in price upon the occurrence of a certain aspect, it would have a positive weight.  In contrast, a planetary aspect would have a negative weight if the security has historically tended to decrease in price upon the occurrence of the aspect.
  • The Advanced Astro Indicator for a security is based on the combined set of weights generated by this process.
  • Everything else being equal, the Advanced Astro Indicator will increase as planetary aspects take place that have positive weights, and it will decrease as planetary aspects take place that have negative weights.

How Can I Analyze Other Securities' Historical Performance Around New Moons and Full Moons

Question

  • Thanks for the great content on how many securities have historically tended to generate higher returns around a new moon and lower returns around a full moon.
  • Where do I get a copy of that tool in Excel?
  • I would like to test this strategy for various securities I trade to see which ones are the most susceptible to the New Moon 507 day period.

Answer

  • A link to download the Excel file is now located in the Conclusion section at the bottom of this page:
  • There is a section at the top of each tab with text in red and yellow highlighting that explains what is included on each tab.
  • The file also includes some additional attributes regarding Moon metrics that I didn't mention, such as the differential in security price performance based on the distance between the Moon and the Earth. For example, Silver has tended to perform well when the Moon is closer to the Earth, and the NASDAQ 100 e-Mini has tended to perform better when the moon is farther away (see below).
