Spiraldates.com spiral calendar scores for November 2012 show several high peaks (potential market highs or lows) on November 4th and 7th, straddling US Election Day, on the 16th, and a huge one on the 25th that is the Sunday
before after the Thanksgiving holiday. In addition to the peaks, the spiraldates scores are at a sustained high level almost all month indicating a large confluence of spirals. There are only 3 days that score below 2 and none that score zero. In addition we have two eclipses, a total solar eclipse on Nov 13th and a penumbral lunar eclipse on November 28th.
So what does all this mean? As always, market conditions immediately prior to a turning point will determine whether we should expect a high or a low. The market turned down sharply on November 4th 2008 when President Obama was elected, despite the fact that the race was quite predictable. If the market rallies between now and the election, we may see a similar effect this year.
Spiraldates.com spiral calendar scores for October 2012 showed a large peak on the 9th,10th, and 11th and a second smaller peak on the 26th-27th. These matched the lows for the month fairly well although the possible large decline we expected might occur didn’t happen yet.
