One of the dominant rhythms in common stock prices is a cycle of approximately four years in length.

Examples of lows in this cycle are 1974, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, and 1998.

This study was first published in 1985 and is updated here. When this cycle first came under scrutiny, analysts attributed the phenomenon to the four years in the presidential cycle. They theorized that the government stimulated the economy through the Federal Reserve at election time to provide the illusion of prosperity and ensure the re-election of the incumbent. However, closer analysis reveals that the cycle also exists in countries where elections held every six or eight years.

(A x B / (A – B) = Synodic Cycle

(where A and B are the sidereal periods of the two planets involved)

And yet, local media people continue to describe bull and bear markets in terms of their own economies and local events. They do not see that there is some larger force at work, known as the principle of commonality. In addition, the cycle existed well before the establishment of the Fed in 1913.

Some Wall Street veterans contend that the Rothschilds were the first to discover and use the cycle for profitable trading. Earlier in the last century, a New York investment group reportedly employed a mathematician to uncover the Rothschild’s secret. More recently, Veryl L. Dunbar wrote about a 3.84-year cycle in the June 30,1952 issue of Barrons.

There is a planetary correlation to this cycle. In order to determine the length of a synodic planetary period in longitude (the length of time that elapses from the conjunction of two bodies to their next conjunction), substitute the sidereal periods in the following formula:

(A x B / (A – B) = Synodic Cycle

(where A and B are the sidereal periods of the two planets involved)

Substitution of the sidereal periods of the planet Mars and the asteroid Vesta into this formula gives a cycle of 3.90 years, very close to Dunbar’s 3.84 years. As an aside, I have found that Vesta is usually prominent in the natal horoscopes of professional stock traders.

The graph shows the average tendency for the Dow to move in percentage terms as Mars and Vesta make a complete cycle. A move from 1.0 to 1.02 represents a move of 2 percent. When the study was first run in 1985, there was a tendency for the market to top at the 90-degree aspect and to bottom at the 240-degree angle. Since that time, there have been four more completed cycles. Both the high and the low points in the cycle seem to have drifted back by about 15 degrees in the last 15 years. However, in updating the study, I adhered to the original decision rule that derived in 1985.
