Ketu and Stock market
Ketu and Stock market
We like it or not, planets do influence every affair of this earth. Stock market is no different from this. Planets influence the minds of traders and investors at large. Here I will analyze Ketu’s position in fire signs. When Ketu (or south node) passes through the fiery signs, there will be either a crash in stock market or flat market. Fiery signs in zodiac are Aries (Mesha), Leo (DImha) and Sagittarius (Dhanu). Historically if we see, when Ketu was transiting in Leo around 2008, we witnessed a sub-prime crisis started from US and it had a ripple effect throughout the world. Before that when Ketu was travelling in Sagittarius, there was an internet buble, which saw many IT companies wiped out. It is not necessarily only Ketu is the reason for the crashes but all the planets have their say in the affairs. Astrology is a multi-dimensional science with 12 signs and 9 planets, but Ketu plays a major role in fiery signs. At this time greed plays a major role and everyone wants to make a killing in the market. The over enthusiasm in the minds of traders and investors will open the gateway for disaster.
There is a saying in astrology scriptures: “Shanivat Rahu and Kujavat Ketu” – that means Rahu behaves like Shani or Saturn and Ketu behaves like Kuja or Mars. So obviously Ketu in Fiery signs gives that explosive touch. Another thing is Ketu is a headless entity. Ketu will make whole environment pessimistic and in fire sign, it will be accentuated.
Market moves in business cycles of bullish and bearish trends. When Ketu moves in fire signs, it will coincide with the bearish trends. Currently Ketu is in fiery sign, Aries. Once Ketu moves out of Aries, then we can see the revival in the trend. It entered Aries around December 2012 and will be here till July 2014. It is interesting to note here that, after December 2012 stock market never moved anyways with clear confidence. It is moving in a sideways with a broad range. Actually we cannot say that market has moved upwards. Market is sustaining because of few sectors like IT, Pharma. If these sectors were not performed well, we would have seen market had crashed long back. Stock market shows real picture of the economy. When most of the sectors move in tandem, then we can say that we have growing economy. But at present, the real picture is not showing that, we have few sectors only moving up. If these sectors lose their strength, then market will be in trouble.
Also, currently there are many events taking place around the world. Ukraine unrest, China’s troubles etc. With regards to India, stock market is digesting the fact that BJP is going to form the next government. Narendra Modi is going very strong. We have to see if Modi wave can stop the Ketu’s negative influence. If BJP fails to form the government, then we will definitely see the blood bath in the market. But looks like BJP will be able to form the government. So it can give boost to the market.
