In Points to Ponder: 2011-2012 I blogged about William Koenig’s investigation of Eric Hadik’s predictions. Based upon these, Bill ‘hit the nail on the head’ in September 2012 by asking, “Would the 11th anniversary of 9/11 be another historical day?” – it was! (11-year cycle proves itself again! – note it’s the period for sunspot activity.) Bill has reprinted his earlier report as follows:
“Eric Hadik (www.insiidetrack.com) has complied an extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19 and 20—including world wars, American wars, Israeli wars, and the births of Hitler and Mohammed.
“Eric has previously shared the significance of the month of April and the incredible number of events that have happened in this month that have impacted the US, Israel and the Jewish people.
“Major wars began in the US in this time frame. Major domestic terror events occurred numerous times on April 19. Mohammed and Hitler were born on the same day—April 20. There have also been major news items about Iran in the month of April from 2006 to 2012 (and 2013’s Boston Marathon bombing, 2015’s nuclear ‘agreement’ with Iran: RB)…”
He then quotes Eric on:
THE NATURAL YEAR
“The sun governs our seasons, which are measured by the solstices and equinoxes. By many accounts, the Natural Year begins with the vernal equinox on March 20/21. This has been true in agrarian (agriculture/ farming-based) societies for thousands of years. It has been true in civilizations that worshipped the sun (and established their calendars accordingly).
“As such, it starts the clock on the ‘opening range’ of each Natural Year. Let me explain. If one were to begin a calendar on the vernal equinox (start of Spring), the first month of that year would end on April 19/20. It is when the northern half of the earth transitions from seasonal ‘death’ to ‘life’. In the old days, it was also when ‘kings went off to war’. (See the biblical account of when David chose not to go off.)
“Everyone that suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) could certainly attest to the psychological aspects of longer days and more sunlight when the shroud of depression lifts and the rays of hope come flooding back into their lives.
“But, let’s apply this to the markets …
“From a trading standpoint, the action in that first 30 days would represent a type of ‘opening range’ that would influence the trading of the rest of the Natural Year. This is similar to how I treat the first week—and month—of the calendar year, the first three trading days of each month and the first day of the week.
“Once that opening range (first 30 days) is complete, you have resistance and support for the entire period—both when the market is trading in that range AND once it has broken out of it.
“You also have an important gauge of trend for that year (if the market is trading above that range, it is in an uptrend on an intra-year basis, etc.).
“Emphasis on the natural year was more significant in W.D. Gann’s time, since the commodity futures markets were almost all agricultural.
“Mid-April was the time when ‘carry-over crop stocks’ were at their lowest and when planting conditions and expectations for the new ‘year’—or growing season—were becoming apparent.
“But, it is not just trading that is impacted … This period—from March 20/21 to April 19/20—marks a very important transition period, linked to various means of measuring time with physical (natural), celestial (astronomy), metaphysical (astrology) and supernatural (Jewish and Christian commemorations) implications.
“April 19/20 acts like a deadline for determining what to expect in the coming (natural) year. It is a time to watch each year for signs of ‘change'”
