An old Wall Street adage says, “As January goes, so goes the year”. This was the inspiration for our Dow Jones Industrial Average Fractal Forecast, for which you can now see the following 2016 forecast results. Our fractal model takes the January Barometer to a higher level of detail in that it shows forecasted highs and lows for the coming year.
The traditional January Barometer has been shown to be accurate, based on data since 1950, about 75% of the time, in forecasting the trend for the year. January 2016 showed a clear down trend, with the DJIA closing down 5.5% for the month. However, occasionally the model inverts and this is what happened for most of 2016.

     The 2017 DJIA Fractal Forecast is showing a wild roller coaster year which, following big ups and big downs, will likely end the year nearly unchanged. One interesting point is that the regular model is showing the lowest low for about August 7, on which there will be a Lunar Eclipse. Given there are only two Lunar Eclipses in a year, this is rather amazing that the Fractal Model seems to be in near perfect synch with the major planetary events months in advance.
