Transit Aspect Oscillator  A Global (personal) Psychological and Economic Indicator

       TAO 9 Applications:

        To the best of my knowledge, from Donald Bradley's efforts in the 1960's to the present time, there has not been a published astronomical oscillator correlating real-time with global stock indexes as the TAO 9 does. The study of the mathematical nature of the TAO  and its correlations with multiple realms of human activities has the potential to become a new field of scientific endeavor.
       The three TAO values (short, intermediate, and long term) and trends have statistical reliability and significance, and, therefore, probable predictive value  relative to global stock prices.  The creation of the TAO oscillators has been a 30 year project.   
       The rise and fall of global psychological optimism and pessimism correlate with the rise and fall of global wealth, as measured by stock prices. When the TAO 9 is below zero and falling, fear and pessimism dominate, manifesting in stock market declines.  When the TAO 9 is above zero and rising, happiness and optimism dominate, synchronistic, statistically, with rising stock market prices.  
      SOMC combines the TAO 9's intrinsic value with 25+ years of  technical market analysis and developing technical trading systems to time the price movements of the stock and commodity markets effectively.
      The graph of the aspectarian (that assigns positive and negative numbers to every degree of planetary pair angular separation) is not shown.  This graph (not shown) happens to validate some traditional astrological tenets on the nature of aspects. The TAO 9, however, is strictly astronomical and mathematical.  SOMC uses both the TAO 9 and relatively simple mechanical models to time and trade  intermediate and long term.

NOTES...   2017                                                                                                                          Previous notes on Trading Notes Hx

01/13 0730: 1/12, most equity Expo Ts reversed short.  The ama's began to reverse.  Today, minimal highs early, lower close into 1/17.

01/12 0730: Remember 11/08 2100 to 11/09 0200?  Equity Reality = ER visit.  ETFast is essentially short.  Expo Ts close behind.

01/11 0730: Today, equities weakening.  Setting up, day by day, for the sharp decline into March.

01/10 0730: Little movement expected today.  Gradual progress on all Expo Ts.  The goal: Expo Osc page complete by 1/31.

01/09 0730: Since SPY Expo T has been long from 1/4, then I posted wrong from 1/4.  To be corrected ASAP.  Today, given the futures and the new daily technical chart, holding SPXS is the best option.  The overnight high of 2275 is most likely the high for today, and the start of the anticipated sharp and substantial equity decline.  

01/06 0740: NFP neutral.  Today, again, equities weak.  Expo T for NYSE, SPY,  FXE, IWM finished.  NYSE Expo T and Technical today.

01/05 0800: Away this am.  Status quo.  Today, equities working lower.

01/04 0800: SPY is now near the Expo T sell value = SPXS entry probable early.  This am I will post the Expo T NYSE & SPY values.  Then, as time permits, posting  Expo and Technical charts.  Today opens the 2nd rally day, and equity reversal short is near.

01/03 0800: The new Expo T values for NYSE and SPY will be posted by end 1/4.  SPXL and SPXS will be the primary ETFs.

                       The primary 2017 goal: Reliability.   The returns then naturally occur.

                       Today: the Equity Expo Ts are almost all short = selling 1-2 day rallies, unless there is a long reversal.


12/30 1500:  Exiting into 2017 for new NYSE/SPY Expo T signals.

           0800:  Little change today.  Holding into 1/3/17.  Expos vs. Seasonals goes on.

12/29 0800:  In Lake Geneva, WI.  Equity Expos almost all short now, and in holding short mode.  12/29-30: gradually extending lower.

12/28 0700:  No change.  After 1000, may be away for the day.

12/27 0750:  Equity Expos , most short, some long.  Seasonals long.  Equities meander, for awhile...

12/23 0750:  More equity Expos selling, and probably winning the battle against seasonal positives.

12/22 0720:  Equity Expo models remain mixed, with a bias short.  Today, into 12/23, expected quiet.

12/21 0710:  A time when equity seasonals are bullish, countered by most Expos being bearish.  For now, going nowhere fast...

TAO 9 :   Brief TAO 9 summary and TAO 8 Graph

    The TAO 8 correlated with the SP 500, 1/1/1980 through 08/31/2014 PPMC is p < .0001, >1:10,000 against chance.    

          Pearson Product-Moment Correlation for TAO 8 and SP 500:   n=3602,   r=+0.48, p < .0001, which means that the TAO 8 correlated positively with the SP 500, both rising and falling, greater than 1:10,000 against chance.  This strength of correlation implies a causal mechanism, which is yet unknown.  As a comparison, to be very sure that the long sought after Higgs boson had been found, scientists used a 1:10,000 confidence level: p <.0001.  Current modern physics has no viable mechanism for explaining the TAO 8 results.  That is for future generations.

    TAO 9 Transiting Aspect Oscillator is a compilation of four fundamental primary concepts and functions:

1)  An Aspectarian based upon the weighted harmonics of the numbers 2 and 3, which gives positive/negative values to the transiting angular separation of each planetary pair

2)  The selection of 25 specific transiting planetary pairs used in the TAO 8 calculations

3)  Mathematical summations of those Aspectarian values (both exponential and unique astro averages) to generate the Quick TAO, Slow TAO and TAO 9

4)  Zeroing those summations over the selected time frames to create scientifically applicable oscillators


     The TAO 9 is a 100% mathematical, quantitative, zeroed oscillator that can be compared to real world, real time realms of human life.  The TAO 8 happens to highly correlate with the Global equities markets, and other financial, social and political measures.   The TAO 8 is a Directional Astronomical Indicator.

     As TAO 9 rises, Global Psychology tends to rise and equities/assets tend to gain value reliably (1:10,000 against chance).  When the TAO 9 falls, Global Psychology declines, pessimism emerges, and equities/assets tend to fall in value.


TAO 8: 1/ 1/ 1997 to 3/ 31/ 2014    Vertical is yearly/quarterly.

                TAO 8, red. Quick TAO, blue. Slow TAO, orange.  SP 500, black. SP 500, BLS Inflation Adjusted, light black and the lowest equity cycle on the graph.

8/ 11/ 14:   The TAO 8 is a zeroed oscillator, now falling from its highest peak, yet for all of early 2014 favors optimism. All declines have been brief and bought.  The Russell 2000, frequently a trend leader, has shown the greatest weakness.  And now with the steepening TAO 8 decline will come increased pessimism, depressing events, social unrest, political instability and asset vulnerability.  The 2015 season will favor selling equity rallies.

The TAO 9: An astro economic indicator, similar to but distinct from the Bradley model

     1)  100% objective, mathematical, astronomic and scientific Transiting Aspect Oscillator

     2)  A real-time, directional astro indicator, now with more than 1:10,000 significance

             a) TAO 9 high/rising brings optimism, raises equities, asset values and stability

             b) TAO 9 low/falling activates pessimism, erodes assets and adds social instability

11/18  NYSE    TAO     TAO +/-    ME/MA       NYSE  with 3 Primary Astro Oscillators

     TAO (the Red TAO on the graph) is the most primary and reliable TAO variation, with greater than 1:10,000 significance back through 1900.  It is a zeroed planetary transit aspect oscillator, reflecting global psychology.  When above 0, more optimism (risk taking), and when below, greater pessimism.  TAO +/- (Orange) shows the general, long term Optimism/Pessimism factor.  ME/MA (Blue) is the dynamic (but less reliable)  Mercury/Mars component of this TAO.  NYSE (Black) is the standard index.  The TAO has been advanced 7 days. 

    11/18: Assessment.  2wks of NYSE <5% decline, then a sustained year end rally 5-10+%, into early 2017.

SPY 01/06/17  Daily  1500 Close.

     SPY is positioned similarly with early Sep 2016: 1) No new highs for 3 weeks.

2) Lower MACD lows at/below 2.0  3) Narrow BBs (16,1.0).  The 1/6 breakout above the upper 1.0 BB is therefore suspect.  Ergo, a sharp 10% decline into March 2017 is anticipated, pausing near 224.00, then breaking the Nov 4 lows.


01/06   NYSE          Expo T,   Expo T Fast,   Expo T Slow         5/16/16 - 01/05/17

     Expo T is a composite of Exponential Oscillators and EO Sums.  It is zeroed, with a range of +1000 to -1000.

Expo T will be applied to the 18 ETFs followed (initially).  It can be adjusted numerically for all markets and time frames.        Expo T can be utilized a number of different ways.  Primarily, certain %s off high/lows indicate reversals.         


01/13 0730  Expo T:   Short  NYSE 01/12 @0900,   11195            01/13  If @1430 NYSE  <11380,   then long  ET

                                        Short  SPY   01/12 @0900,  226.00           01/13  If @1430  SPY   <228.80,  then long  ET


01/09 0900:                 ET = Expo T         ETF = Expo T  Fast         ETVF = Expo T  Very Fast


     Expo T signals vary from days to weeks: average currently 9 days, based on 0930&1430 (x2 daily) data input.

     Expo Fast uses the most dynamic component of Expo.  Expo Very Fast uses hourly data input (x8/day). The EVF rules are not set yet.
There is no "track record" other than what is posted. The theoretical framework is sound.  Expo is a new invention at work, in progress, real time.
