jabat many planets go retrograde later in the year. needless to say these are very interesting times in an 8 yr period venus will go retrograde 5 x (note the fib) venus rules love and money and retrograde periods are not favorable for stock prices. frankly , i think the 1st 1/2 of the year sets the stage for the inflation that will rear its head into the 2nd 1/2 of the year and beyond. maybe thats why so many regular participants are not posting. anyway whats interesting 8yrs ago(2012) venus was in the exact place as it will be when it goes retrograde this year. so a fractal may a great way to guide through that upcoming period. i still use the 70s as a fractal for todays market. the 70s was more condensed then todays action, so on a daily basis i have not been able to navigate using that as my compass. no doubt venus is a powerful indicator for finances. what i see is the fed is going to try to keep the governments and banks from imploding they are going to provide liquidity= they are going to print the resources to keep the system afloat. which is going to debase the currency. at present the synthetic short position in the dollar (coined by r russell back when) is providing great strength in the dollar exacerbating the problem trump needs a weak dollar for the usa.
i feel like i tend to be verbose. so i will end it there. also mars goes retrograde. which i believe will lead to conflict in the middle east
now what i was going to say is 1496 breaks into the next higher price cycle a couple of closes above there and gold is indicating higher prices after a 5 wave wave advance , if that is what we get then a 3 wave correction is in store. and that should occur while venus goes retrograde
