Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. For the ninefold analysis, the fast
moving planets like Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Moon can also
influence the outcome of the world markets. However, these
influences, although usually insignificant, are difficult to
account for as the analysis then becomes too complex to make
market predictions. Therefore, should it become necessary
to account for the influence of fast moving planets the timely
advanced updates whenever appropriate will be provided.
