Weekly Financial Forecast For Week Starting 29th August 2011

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

Monday 29th August: Moon will be in Leo
Tuesday 30th August: Moon will be in Virgo
Wednesday 31st August: Moon will be in Virgo
Thursday 1st September: Moon will be in Libra
Friday 2nd September: Moon will be in Libra

Over this weekend, Mercury completes the segment of retrograde motion. VIX levels will calm down. 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.

With the week ending at Libra, some ups and downs might be seen but the end result will be a modest rise/fall overall. Traders using options should try to build a spread rather than take naked straddle positions on options
