1. The market (SPX) traded as expected so far we pulled back to the 1300-10 support level, although he perversion these days is as a regular hour trader you might miss the most crucial part of trading. As the Venus Saturn square ends today we rather can expect a relief rally in the second part of the week thereby the weekend factor may be rather negative again with the Full Moon ahead on the 15th in Capricorn close to the USA native Pluto position. That matches perfectly the debt ceiling talks drama due the next days but around the 19th we can expect some sort of break through as heliocentric Mercury will enter Sagittarius which stands for an optimistic time frame but usually indicates Currency strength hence Dollar weakness and rising Gold implicating that the debt ceiling resolution will rather be a last minute thing.

That is one of the factors which makes me believe we are still not done with the top as we also have unfinished counts on TDM weekly charts, who suggest we need to make moderate new highs for the DOW and SPX before the shit hits the….
