The stock markets are all on a downward slide after China caught a dose of the panics about their economic situation and, according to commentators, made the situation worse by imposing a brake on their markets.
The Shanghai SSE Composite Index, 19 December 1990, does have a dead-halt Solar Arc Saturn square Pluto around now. That will ease as the months go by. They also have the mild but bubble-bursting tr Neptune opposition Solar Arc Jupiter all year and the disruptive, high-tension tr Uranus square Saturn from mid 2016 on and off into 2017.
The Hang Seng Index (HK) has a completely-blocked Solar Arc Pluto square Mars now; and a devastating tr Pluto conjunct the Solar Arc Neptune as well which returns later in the year; plus tr Uranus square the Solar Arc Sun from late February – so much the same confusion and jolting as Shanghai for this year. Though once the Solar Arc Pluto squares move on it should ease up considerably.
The Hang Seng looks mighty relieved to see April 2017 when an uplifting tr Uranus opposition Jupiter will turn the corner into better times.
The New York Stock Exchange, 17 May 1792 7.52am New York, has an undermining Solar Arc Mars opposition its Neptune, exactly now. That should start to ease as the months go on. Tr Uranus will oppose the NY SE Jupiter from this May which might bring some confidence back. Though generally it’ll be an unsettled year with tr Uranus sextile Pluto following immediately behind.
The Dow Jones, 26 May 1896 9.11 am New York, has an uncomfortably discouraging set of influences for the year ahead with tr Saturn opposition Pluto Neptune through till late October; and a high-tension Solar Arc Uranus square Neptune, exact in 6 months’ time. Plus an uncertain tr Neptune conjunct Solar Arc Neptune from mid February till the New Year 2017.
The FTSE First Trade, 3 January 1984 10am, London, has an upsetting Solar Arc Uranus conjunct its Moon for the next six to eight months. And it is still labouring under the wet blanket of Solar Arc Sun square Saturn which has been running for the past seven months and will be in effect for another five months. There’s another dampener ahead from tr Saturn conjunct Jupiter Neptune in early 2017. Though again there may be more cheer further into 2017 with tr Uranus trine Jupiter which should get confidence back up.
None of it looks terminal, just very edgy and not buoyant.
