Solar Volatility « AstroCycle research

Market Volatility

The Volatility indices (VIX and QQV), are the insurance premiums paid by buyers of Calls and Puts to protect or profit from large price swings. The higher this premium, the higher the fear and expectations of large price moves. The markets can actually rise or fall with a rising VIX and vice versa like we saw in the late 1990′s and early 2000′s.

11 year Solar Cycle and Volatility

Volatility and SunSpots

To get a look at sentiment prior to the 1987 crash, we can take advantage of a correlation between SunSpot numbers and the Volatility index. While this linkage in behavior might seem strange, there have been studies correlating weather, harvests and industrial output and recessions with SunSpots. We can see by overlaying recessions over the SunSpot numbers that they match our expectations for high Volatility and Fear preceding these recessions.

Recessions and the 11 year Solar Cycle

Sunspots and Manufacturing since 1875

The Solar cycle correctly predicted ALL recessions except the 1974-75 one which was probably an extension of the 1970 recession that was correctly predicted. The last 5 out of 5 recessions were dead hits or for purist the last 5 out of 6 for an excellent prediction rate of 83% or better. The Solar cycle predicts we will get a recession in 2012-2014 after Volatility has peaked for this cycle. The modern prophet Edgar Cayce had the following to say about Sun Spots, and their relationship to Man, and the data we have uncovered seems to validate his claims.

“When the heavens and the earth came into being, this meant the universe as the inhabitants of the earth know same; yet there are many suns in the universe, – those even about which our sun, our earth, revolve; and all are moving toward some place. Astronomy is considered a science and astrology as foolishness. Who is correct? One holds that because of the position of the earth, the sun, the planets, they are balanced one with another in some manner, some form; yet that they have nothing to do with man’s life or the expanse of life, or the emotions of the physical being in the earth. Then, why and how do the effects of the sun so influence other life in the earth and not affect Man’s life, Man’s emotions? Man alone is given that birthright of free will. He alone may defy his God! How many of you have questioned that in thine own heart, and know that thy disobedience in the earth reflects unto the heavenly hosts and thus influences that activity of God’s command! For YOU – as souls and sons and daughters of God – DEFY the living God! As the sun is made to shed light and heat upon God’s children in the earth, it is then of that composition of which man is made, or of that termed the earth; yet, as ye have seen and know, there is solid matter, there is liquid, there is vapor. All are one in their various stages of consciousness or of activity for what? Man – GODLY MAN! Yet when these become as in defiance to that light which was commanded to march, to show forth the Lord’s glory, His beauty, His mercy, His hope, – yea, His patience, – do ye wonder then that there become reflected upon even the face of the sun those turmoils and strifes that have been and that are the sin of man? How do they affect man? How does a cross word affect thee? How does anger, jealousy, hate, animosity, affect thee AS a son of God? If thou art the father of same, oft ye cherish same. If thou art the recipient of same from others, thy brethren, how does it affect thee? Much as that confusion which is caused upon the earth by that which appears as a sun spot. The disruption of communications of all natures between men is what? Remember the story, the allegory if ye choose to call it such, of the tower of Babel. Yea, ye say ye trust God, and yet want to show Him how to do it! The more ye become aware of thy relationships to the universe and those influences that control same, the greater thy ability to help, to aid, – the greater thy ability to rely upon the God-force within; but STILL greater thy RESPONSIBILITY to thy fellow men. For, as ye do it unto the least, ye do it unto thy Maker, – even as to the sun which reflects those turmoils that arise with thee; even as the earthquake, even as wars and hates, even as the influences in thy life day by day. Then, what are the sun spots? A natural consequence of that turmoil which the sons of God in the earth reflect upon same.” – Edgar Cayce

Octaves in Time « AstroCycle research

The waveform typically shows weakness near the first and second third of the seasonal 1 year chart, with a similar pattern also visible in the first and second third of the Decade, Century charts and even a Millenium timeline. This also yields the familiar Elliott Wave pattern of three drives up broken by two periods of weakness across all time frames as Elliott discovered and Prechter popularized.

Kondratieff Wave « AstroCycle research

After the roaring Twenties took debt to 270% of GDP in an unsustainable way, the collapse of this debt led to the great Depression, WWII, and a distinct distrust of paper assets and debt. Debt levels then returned to a more manageable 150% of GDP before rising again, mostly from the growth of mortgages as the real estate and commodities bubble took hold in the late 1970?s.

Prime Numbers « AstroCycle research

By definition, only Prime Number frequencies are unique, and all others are Harnonic resonance at lower or higher Octaves of the Prime frequencies or interactions with other frequencies. The three year harmonics shows up mostly in Interest Rates sensitive series, with the 2nd harmonic of 6 year very visible, and the 10th harmonic 60 year cycle very important as well.

The US is facing Debt Deflation just like Japan, and unlike BCA Research which believes the difference between Corporate Debt, and Consumer Debt will yield a different outcome we believe the net result will be similar. I doubt very much China and other creditor nations will continue to support the USA for another 10-20 years of Debt Deflation.

Economic Waves « AstroCycle research

There is evidence of a 150 year cycle, a likely cycle since it would be an harmonic resonance of the 309.6 year Princeton model. The Commodities series shows the secular trends between price inflation and deflation have accelerated in the last century. Supporting this low rates forecast is the Federal Debt now over 8.8 trillion, and Household Debt Service at 20 year highs.

Money Dynamics « AstroCycle research

The Federal Reserve was enacted to control the growth of the Money Supply through short term Interest Rates, but since it is composed of Bankers who profit from the expansion, they can be in conflict of interest. Starting in 1925 Debt grew quickly while the Economy had most likely started contracting in 1920 as shown by the drop in Rates before the rise in Debt and Money Supply in 1925.
