2. Not that I'm aware of.
3. This did happen.
4. This also.
5. And this.
6. Good call!
7. Not yet.
8. Not yet but there are early signs.
9. Not been following them.
12. Not far off.
What's that, 5 out of 10? I wouldn't mind a hit-rate like that.

ANd your forecasts, Little beaker...?
The rise of oil to $50+ after August, more than makes up for
some of the misses|
|Bullseye on oil! $50+ predicted|
|I just returned from America. here's my view:
Of the Election's impact on property prices
Kerry will win, and by a larger margin than some have expected
Japan and China, have kept buying US T-Bonds, thereby keeping 10 year rates stable at 4%. This was done in order not to be seen interfering in the US election. Now that the elections is out of the way, they will now stop buying for awhile, and let the Dollar fall, and US rates rise
Higher rates will put pressure on US Real estate prices, and it will soon be clear that the boom is over. As the US media fills up with negative stories about property, the global bullish bias towards property will fade away
Globally, property prices will slide sharply over the winter|

Comments on the upcoming 2004 US Elections
The world will be watching the United States
forthcoming election on November 2, 2004 with
baited breath. The chief contestants appear to
be John Kerry (December 11, 1943 at 7:10am,
Denver, CO) and George W. Bush (July 6, 1946 at
7:26am in New Haven, CT).
John Kerry has Scorpio rising with Sun in the
rising sign. Mars, ruler of the rising sign is
retrograde in the 7th house with exalted Moon in
Taurus. The Sun, being the ruler of the 10th
house is occupying the rising sign in the
constellation of Mercury. The 10th house is
occupied by benevolent Jupiter, occupying the
constellation of Ketu. The planet of democracy,
Saturn, being in the 8th house is retrograde and
aspected by the 8th house ruler Mercury. The
disposition of these planets appear to be very
powerful, creating many raja yogas â" planetary
combinations for power, position and status in life.
The rising sign ruler, Mars, is in mutual aspect
with the Sun, ruler of the 10th house, creating a
powerful raja yoga which has the energy to bring
the highest political position. He has the Moon,
the ruler of the 9th house placed in an exalted
position in the 7th house opposite the Sun, the
ruler of the 10th house, creating another
powerful raja yoga. When the 9th and 10th
house rulers are mutually connected it creates a
highly effective yoga called a dharma/karma yoga
which brings the opportunity to become
successful, gaining significant position and
importance. Moreover, the Moon and the Sun are
called the royal planets, they are prominently
disposed in relation to the rising sign. In addition,
the ruler of the rising sign, Mars, is in conjunction
with the ruler of the 9th house, the Moon, in the
7th house aspecting the rising sign very strongly.
This creates two more powerful yogas, one is
Bhagya yoga, a yoga for good luck and good
fortune and the other is a Sashi/Mangala yoga,
which brings the fulfillment of desires. They are in
Taurus, who's ruler Venus is occupying its own
sign in the 12th house.
His rising sign ruler Mars, which is also the ruler
of the 6th house, is retrograde in the natal chart.
Transiting Mars during the time of election is
placed in Libra associated with debilitated Sun
and Ketu. And Venus, the ruler of Libra, is
debilitated in Virgo aspected by transiting Saturn.
This means that Mars is not favorably placed â" it
is in the 12th from the rising sign indicating the
challenges he is facing in the election with regard
to visible and invisible enemies.
Saturn, the planet of democracy, is placed in the
8th house from his rising sign and it is retrograde.
In the Bhava Chart, Saturn is placed in the 7th
house. At the time of birth Saturn was therefore
creating Sade Sadi from the Moon as well as
Ashtama Shani from the rising sign. This weak
Saturn is aspected from the 2nd house by
Mercury, which is a malefic for this chart. Since
he is passing through Mercury/Mercury the
malefic nature of this Mercury becomes more
visible. However, he has benevolent Jupiter
aspecting its own sign, Sagittarius, where
Mercury is placed bringing some positive influence
to this Mercury which can bring hopefulness for
Mercury to have an impact on the electorate. We
also notice that both Mercury and Jupiter are
occupying the constellations of Ketu which is
occupying Capricorn, ruled by Saturn.
This disposition of the planets with so many raja
yogas is sure indication of the capacity to gain
the highest position in the political field if the
Dasha/Bhukti as well as the transits of the
planets are favorable at the time of election.
Currently, John Kerry is passing through the
major cycle of Mercury which began May 2003
and will continue through May 2020. In this major
dasa of Mercury he is passing through the bhukti
of Mercury until October 2005 and the Antardasa
of Rahu beginning September 15th, 2004 to
January 25, 2005. Mercury is not a benevolent
planet for Scorpio rising and Mercury and Rahu
are not friendly to one another.|
|Book is still out on:
China growth IMO
Nickel (my bet - shortage is looking like a comeback is in the making given current inventories)
Gold (mine - sideways)
My silver bet has gone sour.
My Coal bet is a good'n - though I never really looked into see how to play it.|

Up to Dow-10800, then CRASH to below Dow-8000 by mid-2005|
|even at 50 bucks , historically it's not expensive....... happy to see it stay north of 30 though ;-)|
It may prove easier than you think to get there.
BTW, if the dollar falls, $50+ Oil may not be so bad for the UK|
$50+ oil means the bottom to drop out of the dollar or crisis in Middle East, but at those prices we'll all be on the buses.|
seems to me that,
some Middle East leaders may not want to see Bush re-elected.
I look for Oil prices to start to rise by August,
and up DRAMATICALLY ($50+?) by November|
|ARCH Crawford, astrologer, interviewed on TFNN yesterday...
Was speaking about the importance of June 5-6th, 2004.
Some very negative aspects in the chart of the USA & President Bush.
Thinks there will be a market crash in the second half of 2004:
August '04 to March '05, if I remember correctly
|Here's my guess for 2004 (been meaning to write something).
Gold/Euro ratio is little changed over the last year or so and I don't expect that to change radically this year. In the short-term I would guess down or sideways maybe for the next 8 weeks. It has hade a good run, down to 400 or so - 370ish?
Silver on the other hand I am quite bullish. Silver/Euro ratio is bullish; in fact silver any currency is bullish. Someone on the silver thread an interesting point that Comdex warehouses are empty and "they" have no choice but to let the price rise to get production re-started. Could be. I think the silver correction will be minimal, two weeks tops. Its performance to date has passed my expectations completely and I expect it to continue.
I am also big on Nickel (good supply/demand) and think coal (shift in policy in exporting China) could be quite nice.
The hoopla that follows China can't be ignored, at least while the music is playing. Chinese govn wants to deflate the balloon but I don't think it will bite until Q4?.
|great COAL article, McB!|
