As overviewed in my blog at "The Turning Point", the next wave down in the Grand Supercycle bear market is likely to be apocalyptic, something I may have foreseen. As projected by Robert Prechter in his January Elliott Wave Theorist, a 90%+ drop in stock prices should unfold in the months ahead:
The initial breakdown has already started with the DJIA plunging around five percent last week in reaction to President Obama picking a fight against the financial Ponzi scheme Wall Street has been engaged in for so very long.
Now, as indicated by Chris Carolan, a "point of recognition" may occur. In this context, note that we have just entered a Puetz eclipse crash window:
Several years back, a cycle watcher named Steve Puetz attempted to see if eclipses and market crashes were somehow related. He studied eight of the greatest crashes in financial history, from the Holland Tulip Mania of 1637 to the Nikkei of 1990. He found that market crashes tend to occur near full moons, and that the greatest number of crashes start after the first full moon after a solar eclipse, when that full moon is also a lunar eclipse. Puetz found that all eight crashes occurred six days before to three days after a full moon that occurred within six weeks of a solar eclipse. The odds of that being a coincidence, Puetz calculated, are less than 1 in 127,000.
Puetz was not saying that so-called "Puetz windows" always lead to crashes, but that if a crash is going to occur, a Puetz window would be the likely time frame in which it would happen. Puetz windows tend to occur every year or two, while crashes are rare events. (SOURCE)
He....concludes that a full moon in general and a lunar (eclipse) full moon close to solar eclipses, in particular, seem to be the triggering device that allows for the rapid transformation of investor psychology from manic greed to paranoia (SOURCE).
The first full moon in the wake of the January 15th solar eclipse that marked the peak in mass mood will occur on January 30th. Thus, a Puetz eclipse crash window is in effect from January 25th to February 2nd during which there may be "rapid transformation of investor psychology from manic greed to paranoia".
As for the evident lunacy of man, this simply reflects how cycles of mass human e-motion (energy in motion) are related to the motion of the universe around us. This is akin to the breathing of the Creator. To disbelieve in God and Creation is to not believe in life, consciousness and your very own existence IMHO. Undoing such extraordinary popular delusions is a crucial part of the "correction" now underway. There is relevant truth to the ancient adage, "As Above, So Below", regardless of the self-important lies most people choose to believe in the modern age.
