Weekly Financial Forecast For Week Starting 22th August 2011

In terms of astrological placement, following major positions are expected to play out this week:

Monday 22nd August: Moon will be in Taurus
Tuesday 23rd August: Moon will be in Taurus
Wednesday 24th August: Moon will be in Gemni
Thursday 25th August: Moon will be in Gemini
Friday 26th August: Moon will be in Cancer

Hope readers managed to make some profit out of the retrograde Mercury and subsequent fall on the bourses. Mercury will be retrograde until 27th August and keep the markets extremely volatile. Please note that on 28th August 2011, Jupiter will be retrograde in Aries and banking stocks will start witnessing upsides. Of course these upsides cannot reverse the losses already caused but will provide some relief. Gold has been rallying relentlessly against a falling dollar and global equities. Gold prices will start correcting a bit during the retrograde motion of Jupiter.

Monday and Tuesday will possibly mark some upsides aided by short-covering on all major indices. Wednesday and Thursday will be volatile and the market patterns will be opposite to each other. If Wednesday marks some upside, Thursday those gains will be reversed or vice versa. Friday will be calmer regardless of whether markets go up or down.
