America Falls Into Recession and Stocks Tank in 2016

Optimism in the stock market by Wall Street took a big hit in 2015. The average year-end 2016 target for the S&P 500 for the 10 strategists surveyed by MarketWatch is actually lower than the average of their original 2015 targets. At this time last year, the strategists had pegged the S&P 500 ending 2015 at an average of 2,201. It closed at 2,061 today, December 31, (for a 0.1% gain year to date). For the end of 2016, those same analysts have an average target of 2,193.

 

For astrologers new to financial astrology, the S&P 500 Index (the Standard & Poor’s 500) is an American stock market index based on the total market capitalization of 500 large companies having common stock listed on both the NYSE or NASDAQ. The S&P 500 index components and their weightings are determined by S&P Dow Jones Indices. It differs from other U.S. stock market indices, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or the NASDAQ Composite index, because of its diverse constituency and weighting methodology. It is one of the most commonly followed equity indices, and many consider it one of the best representations of the U.S. stock market, and a bellwether for the U.S. economy.

Standard & Poor’s introduced its first stock index in 1923. The S&P 500 index in its present form began on March 4, 1957.

Using the Star Trax Millennium v7.1 Natal Charts Rating Module, using the Lavoie astro-blackbox model, based on the market research findings of Lt. Colonel David Williams we can determine which astrological events will exert the greatest downward pressure and impact on the S&P 500 Index horoscope to determine the possible time periods when a major sell-off or correction may occur.

Below is the list of the major mundane astrological events for 2016:

Solar Eclipse: March 8th 2016 at 18 Pisces
Jupiter 90° Saturn: March 23rd 2016 at 16 Virgo/Sagittarius
Lunar Eclipse: March 23rd at 3 Libra
Lunar Eclipse: August 18th at 25 Aquarius
Mars 0° Saturn: August 24th 2016 at 9 Sagittarius
Solar Eclipse: September 1st at 9 Virgo
Lunar Eclipse: September 16th at 24 Pisces
Jupiter 90° Pluto: November 24th at 15 Libra/Capricorn
Jupiter 180° Uranus: December 12th at 20 Libra/Aries

As we enter 2016, not a single Wall Street stock strategist to date is calling for a bear market, or 20% drop of the S&P 500 Index. According to Wall Street pundits the bull market will turn seven in March 2016 and stocks — which have tripled in value (with the assistance of FED Quantitative Easing programs), since March 2009 — will keep chugging higher. The S&P 500 Index according these pundits will post returns that eclipse its long-term average gain of 10%.

However, the astrological mundane portents augur that the S&P 500 Index will come under tremendous pressure where we can expect a compression of the price-to-earnings ratios that will serve as the big market driver by the spring of 2016.

Also, secular trends indicate the U.S. will fall into a recession due to repercussions of gross malinvestments made from 2012-15, high corporate debt, failing profit margins, a dramatic decline in merger-and-acquisition activity, a dramatic drop in IPO’s, rising production cost, contracting price-to earnings, along with the cessation of corporate stock-buy-backs, and slowing and recession like growth due to fiscal-policy paralysis by the FED.

2016 Prediction

Therefore, I predict in 2016 we will witness the end of the so-called U.S. economic expansion that has been more than 70 months old, the second longest in history, with the S&P 500 Index dropping 36% or greater. Based on the astrological blackbox timing scenario we may witness a “last-hurrah” coming upside blow-off that will kill the bear investors and fatten the bull investors for the next four months and possibly nine months.
