The Financial Markets Seven Year Cycle - Shemitah Study

Date: Thursday, February 26, 2015 11:06 AM EDT

seven-year-cycle--shemitah-studyFirst a heads up, this post allows readers to do their own research and make up their own mind.  We at do not hold a biblical view on the markets, but each of you is free to do as they wish.

NOTE: With this subject it is nearly impossible to get agreement between biblical scholars.

What is the biblical Shemitah Cycle:

1) Biblical reference, Hebrew calendar.
2) 7 year cycle
3) The 7th year is a year of rest (or drop of activity)
4) A more serious 7th year of rest is the 7th year at the end of seven 7 years cycle (ie the 49 year).
5) The year of rest (ie 7th year) maybe a minor, medium or major adjustment. No one knows!
6) 2015 is the 7th year of a Shemitah cycle, and also the end of 7 previous Shemitah cycles (ie the last year of 49 years or 7 Shemitah cycles inclusive). Some call this a Jubilee year.

Below is the most recent 7 year cycle. Not showing the full 7x7. But you get the idea!

Below we have 200 years of Dow Jones Industrials (monthly line chart). Also below we have from wikipedia a list of economic crisis from 1800s. Match the crisis up with the chart and research 200 years of 7 year cycles. You will see that some dips are minor, some are medium and some a major. What the next dip will be is any one guess??
