1.) 9:30am (chart below shows a point at 9:34am, to demonstrate a swing at the opening; click on the image to view full size)
PREDICTION: “opens higher or a brief rally”
ACTUAL: Quick drop at the opening (till 9:34am), immediately followed by an up swing (till 9:44am) for a 50% rebound.
COMMENT: Timing was correct; the prediction of a quick move at the opening was correct, but the direction of the initial move at 9:30am was wrong.
- SIDE NOTE: As mentioned in the original prediction post (https://tolstunka.com/2011/09/29/september-30-2011-dji-intraday/), the expected direction(s) was/were based on my observations of the market’s reaction to the similar aspect(s) in the previous 3-4 days. As astro influences change daily, passing short-term influences (e.g., Lunar aspects, exactness of the aspect(s), etc.) can tip the scale, so to speak, by adding more support to either “positive” or “negative” aspects. Subjectively, this can be experienced as more optimistic or pessimistic energy (manifesting as up/down moves in the market); the energy waves may even cancel each other. However, the timing of the aspects formed among planets and by planets to the four major horoscope points (AC, IC, DC & MC) appears to be closely related to the reversal points.
PREDICTION: “possible down movement, but not too sharp (not super strong influence)”
ACTUAL: A sharp reversal point (at 10:24am), followed by down movement.
COMMENT: Timing was correct; the direction was as predicted; although the actual reversal happened at 10:24am, two min later than predicted.
PREDICTION: “upward movement”
ACTUAL: A tiny reversal point = more so an attempt at reversal = a sharp drop has stopped, followed by a tiny up movement.
COMMENT: Timing was correct; the direction was as predicted; although the upward move was tiny.
PREDICTION: “quick drop; then, it either changes direction and recovers, or, at least I expect to see a small upward move right after the drop.”
ACTUAL: Both were reversal points, followed by up movements (tiny at 1:24pm, stronger at 1:30pm).
COMMENT: Timing was correct; the direction was as predicted for the upward move at 1:30pm. However the move at 1:24pm was in the opposite direction than expected—instead, there was a small drop from 1:20 to 1:24pm.
5.) 2:05pm (chart shows 2:04pm, as it wasn’t possible to select an odd time point, i.e., 2:05pm)
PREDICTION: “probably up”
ACTUAL: A reversal point, followed by a long down movement.
COMMENT: Timing was correct; however, the direction was as the opposite than expected.
6.) 2:45pm (chart shows 2:44pm, as it wasn’t possible to select an odd time point, i.e., 2:45pm)
PREDICTION: “probably up”
ACTUAL: A sharp reversal point (at 2:42pm), followed by a down movement.
COMMENT: Timing was close, but not exact, as the reversal began 3 min earlier at 2:42pm; also, the direction was the opposite than expected.
PREDICTION: “cld be a quick movement at the end of the day, probably down (or a reversal in direction, whatever it is)”
ACTUAL: A sharp reversal point, followed by a quick drop.
COMMENT: Timing was correct; the direction was as predicted.

Thanks for your thoughts on this interesting topic. I am pleased to have
located your blog ,as it will definitely help in my future investing
choices. I’ll definitely visit again in the future. Also, do you have a newsletter for your blog? I did not notice where to sign up on the site.
Glad you found it helpful. 🙂 My personal interest is astrology rather than investing. I’ve been making some market predictions to illustrate various planetary aspects/transits mostly because financial data are freely available and generate greater interest (i.e., traffic to the blog). Am considering overhauling the blog to make it primarily focus on astro-investing (or have a separate section/site for that). And yes, I should probably add feeds, widgets, newsletter, etc. 🙂
