Numerology and Sacred Geometry: Wizards of Wall Street: Part 1 of 3
By Asoka Selvarajah, Ph. D.
The rumors are true. Esoteric techniques ARE being used to make big money. Whether it be collapsing stocks on Wall Street, or volatile Commodity Futures, the esoteric traders are out there and growing in number.
During my eleven year career in Investment Banking, my role as Technical Analyst to a number of major firms gave me the opportunity to not only hear about these secret techniques, but actually use them to advise on the investment of huge quantities of money.
What sort of esoteric methods are we talking about? Specifically, Astrology, Numerology and Sacred Geometry. Why are they still secret? Because, in the extremely conservative world of Investment Banking, they are considered highly unorthodox, and hence illegitimate. The very suspicion that such methods are definitely being used by major "responsible" banks would cause a media scandal (and has done so on at least one occasion). Even within the firm, anyone using such techniques tends to keep them secret from their seniors. The fact that such techniques work extremely well, and allow you to forecast and trade the markets in a manner possible in no other way, is not of the slightest interest.
Astrological techniques are generally used to determine future turning points - i.e. tops or bottoms - in the market being studied. However, they can also be used to determine price levels where falling prices are likely to meet support, or rising prices are likely to meet resistance to their ascent. In my own work, I tended to use a clustering approach to determine future turning points in time. In other words, where several different astrological signals all line up to the same day on daily charts, or the same week on longer-term weekly charts, it would signal a high probability turning point. All of these would then be noted in a calender, often years in advance, which could then be consulted on a regular basis to watch for critical time periods.
Astrological natal charts are also very powerful. As with human beings, every stock or commodity is considered to have a specific date of birth. In the case of stocks, for example, this is often the incorporation date. Hence it is possible to draw up a natal chart for a stock, and then analyze what is coming up for that stock in any particular time period, just as you would for a human being.
Remarkable astrological correspondences can be seen around major financial market events. For example, it has been found that the 1929 and 1987 stock market charts look remarkably similar. Actually, this is common knowledge in the financial industry. What is not commonly known is that when moon cycles and Fibonacci numbers are considered, it is possible to demonstrate that the two charts are actually IDENTICAL. Moreover, the 1929 crash and the 1987 crash are separated by an exact number of Fibonacci lunar cycles. The person who discovered this "Spiral Calender" phenomenon, an options trader called Chris Carolyn, put this information to use in the 1989 "mini-crash" and made so much money, he never needs to work again!
