This should give you a chart looking like this:
What is the difference between Egyptian and Ptolemy Terms? As the name mentions, Egyptian Terms were determined by the Egyptian sages and are older than Ptolemy Terms. Ptolemy modified them probably because of astronomical measurements. His terms were adopted by medivial astrologers and are still in use in modern times. The final dicision which one to choose is up to you. I took Egyptian Terms simply because they fit better to current market conditions.
Next I look for situations where Moon moves thru terms of duads which are ruled by the same planet as when Moon is moving thru either Classic Duads or Egyptian Terms at the same time. The first situation on this chart is at 19. Feb. in the evening. Moon moves thru a term of duads ruled by Mercury. At the same time Moon is moving thru terms also ruled by Mercury. Then, later on 20th Feb. Moon moves thru a term of duad ruled by Mercury and at the same time is moving thru a Duad ruled by Mercury. In below screen shot I highlighted these situations.
I assume that the market of the smallest period (which is "Terms of Duads") will behave the same like on one of the larger periods with the same ruler in play. If it is strong trending in "Terms of Duads" it will also be strong trending in either "Classic Duads" or "Egyptian Terms". If it is choppy on the small frame, it will be choppy on the larger frame, too. Note the opening price at the start of "Terms of Duads" as well as the closing price at the end of it. If price has fallen consider bearish trading ideas only as long as the larger period lasts, and vice-verse, choose only bullish ideas if price increased during the shorter frame.
You can see that I don't need to dig deep thru the history of charts to figure out these opportunities. However, for this method yields a wide field of empirical results I'd encourage you to take time and experiment with these terms, duads and their terms on your own. Also try other planetary orbs like Mercury, Ascendant, ...
Please allow me to mention one person who has developed a highly sophisticated trading system based on terms, duads and their rulers. It's Jonathan Pearl. He is a financial astrologer. To find him thru the net you might google for "Pearl Quicktrader".
