[5/6/12 Note: I had previously identified Gold's natal chart as 12/21/74. However, this is not the harmonic chart that I had used when I generated the chart below. The 1974 natal chart does not produce good harmonics for gold. So I have removed the section in this post regarding the natal chart. The chart below is actually based on a reverse-engeneering of harmonic cycles from gold's historic turn dates, with pentagram points at about 10°, 82°, 154°, 226°, and 298° from 0° Aries. This is about a 35.5° rotation of Silver's harmonics.]

I made this chart some time ago explaining gold's movements [based on the harmonic above] but for some reason got distracted and did not post it. Only the heliocentric orientation was used in this analysis.

2011 Gold Futures


  1. Thanks for keeping this blog going Platy
    As always, very interesting

  2. great work! tnx for posting. one of Cowan's students remarked that Saturn has an important effect on gold trends - I'm going to check it out and will post if I find anything interesting.

  3. Adding helio Saturn intervals (45:00, 22:30, 11:15, 5:37, 2:50, 1:25 and additions of these such as 33:45, 16:52, 8:27, 4:15) to a high or low often coincide with highs and lows in gold. Recent highs and lows as follows:
    2/9/2005 low to 5/12/2006 high = 16:50 degs
    5/12/2006 high to 6/14/2006 low = 1:12 degs
    6/14/2006 low to 3/17/2008 high = 23:03 degs
    3/17/08 high to 11/13/2008 low = 8:27 degs
    11/13/2008 low to 9/6/2011 high = 34:35 degs

    9/6/2011 high to 12/29/11 low = 3:43 degs (not an exact interval - is it close enough?)
    If this analysis holds, then the next interval would be 4:15 degs which was 2/14/2012 (closer to a rebound high than a low), 5:37 on 3/28/12 which is looking like a rebound high as well) and next would be + 8:27 degs on June 24, 2012. The last major high to low (3/17/2008 to 11/13/2008) was +8:27 degs - perhaps we're looking at 6/24/2012 for the final low in gold for this wave.

    1. I'm confused about what you're doing here Buffee... What are the Saturn intervals measured from? What is the basis for the intervals you are using?

  4. I'm measuring helio degs of Saturn from high to low and see subdivisons of 45 degs as significant turning points.

    1. Ah, ok I see now. Interesting... thanks Buffee!

  5. apologies - rechecked this cycle. Here are the correct cits for gold:
    2/28/12 High (5:37 from 9/6/11 high)
    4/10/12 ? (7:02 from 9/6/11 high)
    5/24/12 LOW? (8:27 from 9/6/11 high)

    1. Thanks for the diligence Buffee!

  6. Is this supposed to be a ST or IT top in S&P general markets?
    3/28/2012 - Cowan PTVs Nailed Today's SP500 Sell-Off

    Looking at a daily, we've had at most a few tiny down days recently, but no "selloff"?
    Maybe it's assumed since it's EOQ, that the top is in.

    I'm assuming it's not Mr. Cowan who updates that site, but one of his fans.

    1. Good questions... I can't answer them. I have not studied PTV. But I do believe that is Cowan's site.

  7. 1.5 is a common, but not the only integer multiple that the market often obeys.

    The most important factor is Time and that can be identified by the cycle that is driving the market upwards - when that tops out it might coicide with a key multiple of PTV in question, it might not.

    I would say Cowan's admin staff update the site on his behalf, although it would add more weight if it were the man himself.
    I would def recommend his courses as multiple of the PTV's can be seen on the major turning points of the markets - the key is knowing what type of structure is unfolding, once you know that ( which Is not easy to know in advance) you can use PTV's to forward project market highs and lows within a tiny % error.
    The way I am starting to use them is identify the dominate market cycle in play at present and it's harmonics and then look for supporting PTV values - rather than using the PTV as the main tool.
    Cycles have fixed lengths, PTV's can vary in size according to the cycle it's following, which is why sometimes a PTV will be 0.5 of the preceding PTV and sometimes 2 x etc.
    The PTV is a wonderful market tool, but I personally think it needs to be used in conjunction with cycles and then you have Gann's law of vibration. to me Ganns "Wheat" trade of 1908/09 seems logical using the cycles as the dominate force and backed up by the 2x1, 1x1, 1x2 gann lines etc.
    I'm only new to this though so I might be off field in my thinking.
