These are my very preliminary and basic notes on how stock markets are predicted using Vedic Astrology. These are derived from the bible of Mundane Astrology that is Brihat Samhita. Brihat Samhita describes the matter/material associated with planets and then the movement of planets through various signs and nakshatras affects the demand and supply and price movement in commodities and stock market. There are not a lot of learning matter available for Vedic Astrology and I am in process of getting a book called Vyapar Ratna which is supposed to contain specifics on movement in commodities markets. Some information is also derived from Muhurta Chintamani that talks about when we can/should spend/invest/loan money. I apologize that there are no examples, charts or other details in this article as I am still learning. I will try to share information as and when I get it.
The tools that are very important are – panchanga and an astrology chart for the morning time for stock market. We need to note the nakshatra, rashi and position of other planets. Rest is driven by the knowledge of astrology.
Traders and Timing
Depending on the Moon transit, traders should keep away from trading if Moon is in transit through their 2nd house (धनहानि), 8th (अनिष्ट) or 12th house(व्यय)
Mechanism for prediction
Create a chart for morning time at the opening bell for the stock market
Improvement in the sector
In its own sign, friendly sign or exalted
Retrograde? (should we not put money in the area if the planet is retrograde?)
Decline in sector
The governing planet is combust.
Exact conjunct causing ग्रह युद्ध.
Malefic aspects from Saturn, Mars, Rahu
Aspects from other planets
Aspect from Sun or Sun in the house governed by a planet – indicates favour or impediment from government depending on the nature or Sun in the horoscope.
Moon’s effect causes upward/downward movement, the direction depends on other effects/aspects.
Mercury is similar effect, associated with rumours and indecisiveness if Mercury has negative aspects. Mars indicates high volume trading and fluctuations.
Venus’ effect indicates steady and dull market in the area that it aspects
Jupiter – expansion in the industry and growth. Overproduction, glut, increase supply, reduce cost
Saturn: good aspect will steady the market and long term growth; bad aspect will case long term depression. Commodity prices will grow because of short supply – general frustration due to such price rise.
Conjunctions and aspects of Rahu/Ketu are generally bad.
