Planetary Alignments Which Predicted the 1929, 1987 and 2008 Stock Market Crashes are Predicting a Market Collapse Before March 2013
Of all the tools one might use to predict a stock market crash in 2013 — planetary alignments and solar particles are not the first options that spring to mind for people but market analyst Arch Crawford has applied his arcane “astro indicators” for 35 years with surprising success.
You see, Crawford has forecast market crashes before. His astro indicators helped him predict the stock market crash of 1987, as well as the crash following the 9/11 attacks and the crash of 2008. Now Crawford is speaking up as something just hit his radar again.
One of Crawford’s most reliable indicators crossed a threshold on July 18. That means he sees another major stock market crash hitting at some point before March 2013. Between the 18th of July and the end of February 2013, Crawford believes the markets worldwide will crash.
It’s easy to write off Crawford and his unusual methodology, but he doesn’t use his astro indicators exclusively; he’s also an accomplished technical analyst.
He worked as a technical analyst early in his career at Merrill Lynch, which is when he noticed a correlation between some astrological models he’d been studying and his technical charts.
Eventually Crawford evolved a method for predicting market behavior based on both technical analysis and astro indicators. The more they agree, the more confident he is in his predictions.
Hulbert Financial Digest ranked his Crawford Perspectives the best stock market-timer for the period between October 1, 2007 and October 31, 2009. Timer Digest has placed him first in 1987, 1994 and 2008, and second in 2002.
Today, as Crawford looks at his array of indicators, many point to a 2013 stock market crash, although it could happen before then.
Just looking at the stock charts, Crawford said he sees “long-term cycles beginning to kick in to the down side” — there are a couple astro indicators that tell Crawford we’re headed for market trouble.
“The Mars-Uranus crash portion of the Mars-Uranus cycle has just become active on July 18th, and that means that — well, for the last hundred years every crash that has taken place in the market has taken place in the same 40% of that cycle,” Crawford said.
1. 1929 Stock Market Crash
During 1929-1932 there were several difficult planetary alignments which pointed to stock market crashes.
2. 1987 Stock Market Crash
On August 24th, planets were in the tightest five-body “conjunction,” or same ecliptic longitude, in at least 800 years. “It doesn’t get any better than this,” he reasoned. Therefore, “A severe decline will follow” — he told subscribers. Turns out, August 24th was the top. From that alignment high to the October 20th low, the Dow fell 33% — a difficult planetary alignment preceded a difficult stock market.
3. 2001 Stock Market Crash
September 4, 2001 — he wrote that when Mars hits the solar eclipse point on September 7th or September 8th the markets would crash shortly afterwards.
4. 2008 Stock Market Crash
His research showed a Mars-Uranus “crash cycle” beginning August 6, 2008 and ending in late March 2009. So beginning several months before August 6th, he repeatedly told subscribers — Neither Wall Street nor our Government will be able to hold markets up against the deluge!
Further, on September 2nd he told subscribers that the worst part of the crash would occur on October 10th, plus or minus three trading days. He repeated this forecast on October 2nd. His headline was: “Market Crash – Dead Ahead” — turns out, October 10th had the largest number of new lows on the NYSE ever, at 1203.
Another of his key indicators, the number of solar electrons (particles generated by sunspots), has been warning of trouble for most of 2012.
“There have been very rare occasions when they’ve been over 10-to-the-third [1,000] per cubic centimeter for any period of time,” Crawford said. “Well, they’ve been over 10-to-the-third for most of this year and have been as high as 10-to-the-fifth, which is 100 times stronger.”
One of the only other times Crawford saw such major spikes in the solar electrons was in the days before the 1987 stock market crash. A gradual decline in the Dow Jones over several days turned ugly on October 19, when the index lost 508 points — a drop of 22.61%.
“The highest number of electrons for the longest period of time that I’ve ever seen on record prior to this year was the week of the crash of 1987,” Crawford said. He added that the number of electrons “went over 10-to-the-third per cubic centimeter about a week before the crash, and the market was dropping every day.”
Crawford may have an unusual methodology, but he’s not alone in his predictions — other market visionaries also anticipate a 2013 stock market crash.
