The financial astrologer Arch Crawford, who for told the major stock crash of 1987, warned earlier this week that the current Saturn Nepture opposition plus last night's lunar eclipse could herald a stock exchange crash.
Rational pragmatists laughed - then on tuesday $600 Billion was wiped off the value of the US stockmarket.
Crawford is also warning that the 'Mars/Uranus Cycle', which runs from August 13, 2006, to March 27, 2007, has corresponded with every stock market crash in the past 100 years. He says the worst may yet be to come.
The 'Mexican Peso Crisis' in December 1994, the stock exchange crash of 1929, the bankruptcy of the Soviet Union, and the fall of the Berlin Wall all happened at the same time as a conjunction of Saturn & Neptune.
Meanwhile today despite a slight improvement on the FTSE a trader said: "The market's very nervy. It's on thin ice. There's no sign yet of any confidence returning. Every time Wall Street ticks up it doesn't last very long."
Sell, Sell, Sell!
