You may view a video of Raymond Merriman, taken from a lecture given to traders of the ICE exchange last October 2010, where I discuss the long-term cycles in the U.S. Dollar and U.S. stock market.
Due to travel plans to fly back to America now, this will be an abbreviated weekly column.
I would like to thank all of my hosts, subscribers, and associates in Switzerland, Slovenia, Germany, Netherlands, and France for the wonderful and insightful time over these past two months in your countries. Thank you all so much. I am forever grateful.
The Market Week in Review :
Happy birthday, America! Financial markets in the USA will be closed on Monday, July 4, in celebration of its Independence Day 235 years ago.
Short-Term Geocosmics :
The solar eclipse on Friday, July 1, was right in the middle of the Sun's translation to Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, forming a grand square in early cardinal signs. Stock markets around the world rallied sharply into this eclipse and solar translation period, while precious metals and U.S. Treasuries fell sharply. Now we watch to see if this grand square will correlate with reversals into the opposite direction of these past few days.
Just as the Sun in the nurturing and patriotic sign of Cancer completes its grand square to these heavy outer planets on July 2, Venus will enter the same family and parental-oriented sign of Cancer on July 3 and form the same cardinal grand square to the same revolutionary-versus-traditional-minded far out planets in our solar system, July 7-13. In a perfectly balanced and interconnected relationship between the cosmic and human activity as suggested by Saturn in Libra, one would anticipate an opposite reaction under the Venus translation transit as witnessed under the solar transit. But Uranus is involved, which tends to not go along with such obvious expectations. Instead of reversals, Uranus-inspired planetary patterns are oftentimes breakouts, like mavericks, in the direction of the new movement.
Cycle studies could support that bullish viewpoint too since we are in the time band for the 50-week cycle trough. That is, the week ending June 17 was 50 weeks since the 50-week cycle low of July 2, 2010. And the lowest price since early May's three-year high occurred on the lunar eclipse of June 15. Of course, in a perfectly interconnected "Saturn-in-Libra balanced cosmic scale", that too would suggest a peak in prices forming right now, under the solar eclipse, in direct opposition to the possibly longer-term cycle trough that formed on the lunar eclipse two weeks ago.
As Financial Astrologers, we are expected (perhaps unrealistically) to know what will happen, or at least have an opinion, which we all do. But like Ben Bernanke stated last year at this same time, just as the 50-week cycle low was forming and only a few days before his (the Fed's) decision to commence the second round of quantitative easing by purchasing $600B of U.S. Treasuries through June 30, 2011, the indicators right now are very mixed and "unusually uncertain". The signals generated by Financial Astrology would argue for a top and reversal back down, sans Uranus. The technical and cyclical picture, however, may be read as extremely bullish, especially given that first the Sun between June 21 and July 2, and then Venus July 3-13 traverse through the early degrees of Cancer, right over the USA's three benefics : Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun. And if the "Great Asset Reset" is now beginning, where investors move their monies from U.S. government-backed securities, notes, and bonds at 3% or less return, for the more attractive returns offered on high quality corporate bonds of financially stable private sector firms, the foundation could be set for another run on the stock market into late 2011 through early 2012, when Jupiter returns to the Aries-Taurus cusp where highs tend to happen nearby. Money has to move somewhere, and there is still a lot of it floating around with restless Uranus in Aries and its never-ending quest for... . profits. This would spell trouble for governments and banks that depend on the guaranteed security of U.S. Treasuries (well, at least until August 2). But it could be a bonanza of new funds being re-directed into well-capitalized companies that produce both basic needs and new forms of technology (Uranus in Aries) that lead the way to transforming the uses of energy - especially renewable energy, a perfect phrase for the forthcoming Uranus in Aries, square Pluto in Capricorn. Think of it as new age waste and removal, and/or transformation of the banking system. They are ruled by the same planetary principles in force right now through 2015.Enjoy your holiday! .

If you are an active short-term trader, you may be interested in our Weekly or even Daily Market reports with short-term trading recommendations (see a sample there, of the weekly). It is the only way I keep in touch with traders on a daily or even weekly basis. These reports give in-depth analysis of the DJIA, S&P and NASDAQ futures, Euro currency (cash and futures), Swiss Franc, Dollar/Yen cash and Yen futures, T-Notes, Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, Gold and Silver. The daily reports cover all stock indices listed above, as well as futures in Euro, T-Notes, Soybeans, Gold and Silver. Subscription to the daily report also includes the weekly report. For more information, or call our offices at 1-248-626-3034. In fact, since September 2011, both the daily and weekly reports have been extremely accurate and profitable for both position traders and short-term aggressive traders. Position traders in stocks indices, for instance, were put long back in November 2010 when the DJIA traded slightly below 11,000. They have remained long through the entire rally since then (over 1200 points, and over 12%). These reports are extremely valuable to those who trade ETF's (Exchange Traded Funds). In the words of one of our subscribers : " I recently subscribed to your weekly report and am finding it to be excellent and a very useful companion to the MMA Cycles Report. I can't imagine now managing my investments without them ".
The final Volume 5 : there are few things in life that give me as much fulfillment as getting into the heart of writing a good book. There is always a point when you realize you are treading new ground and coming up with valuable insights that make the entire effort all come together. And so it is now that I come to the final stages of completing the final 5th volume of "The Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing" series. This will complete the project that started in 1996. The previous 4 volumes have been on "when" to buy and sell, or how to forecast a future cycle low or high. This last volume addresses the subject of "where" to buy and sell, or at what price to buy and sell. It is the art and science of "forecasting price targets". It is the missing link to the first four volumes. It details the mathematical formulas and technical studies used to enhance timing of entry and exit in any market, but especially stock indices. The book is on target to be out in September 2011, as stated earlier. If you have one of the first four volumes, or if you subscribe to any MMA subscription report, you have received a special pre-publication offer in early May (or call us to place your order if you want to make sure you are on the list). We should point out that Volumes 2 and 3 will probably be sold out before this new volume comes out. There are less than 15 copies of each available. We will allow them to remain out of print for a while before reprinting. If you have purchased one of the volumes, or if you are a subscriber to our market reports, and did not receive a letter from us in early May regarding a pre-publication special price, then please call us for that offer, which will be in effect only until July 1. At that time we will announce a different pre-publication price to the public.

I am oftentimes asked for recommendations of a money manager who uses my methods, since I won't manage other people's money. The thing is, almost all money managers I know use their own systems. But many subscribe to my services and share my thoughts about the future of the economy, various financial markets, and how to position one's portfolio along these lines. One money manager who subscribes to our services that I would suggest for those looking to structure a longer-term portfolio, such as a retirement account, is Duke O'Neill of Boulder, Colorado. He can be reached at email@example.com, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ted is a legend in financial futures and has a seat on the CME. Both are very knowledgeable of the tools I use, of the way I am looking at markets, and yet each makes their own decisions as to exactly when to enter and exit any market. They will be more than happy to assist you.
To the above list, I would also like to recommend long-term MMA subscriber Erwin Brunner of Zurich, Switzerland. Mr. Brunner is the founder of BrunnerInvest AG. One of his five funds was awarded the "Best in-house fund of funds " in the world recently. Mr. Brunner is a former director of the Swiss Banking Corporation (today it is known as UBS), and a general director of Rothschild Bank in Zurich. As an independent wealth manager for high net worth individuals and institutional clients only, he places his clients into the funds of the best performing fund managers in the world, via his own research and experience. For high net worth readers interested in Mr. Brunner's funds, please contact him through www.brunnerinvest.ch.
The newly revised The Sun, The Moon, and Silver Book : Secrets of a Silver Trader, is now out. This is a book that you will use as a reference guide for...many, many years. It identifies all the key Sun-Moon combinations that have a higher (and lower) than expected probability of correlating with 4% or greater reversals in COMEX Silver. It also identifies "Big Range Days " - those days in which the range of Silver is most likely to be 3.5% or more of the price of Silver, which is a great tool for day traders. This book fulfills the dream of all traders: high probability winning trade possibilities, with minimal market exposure. It is that "extra edge ". And Silver is a great market to trade now. The cost is $125.00. For ordering on line.
Disclaimer and statement of purpose : The purpose of this column is not to predict the future movement of various financial markets. However, that is the purpose of the MMA (Merriman Market Analyst) subscription services. This column is not a subscription service. It is a free service, except in those cases where a fee may be assessed to cover the cost of translating this column from English into a non-English language. This weekly report is written with the intent to educate the reader on the relationship between astrological factors and collective human activities as they are happening. In this regard, this report will oftentimes report what happened in various stock and financial markets throughout the world in the past week, and discuss that movement in light of the geocosmic signatures that were in effect. It will then identify the geocosmic factors that will be in effect in the next week, or even month, or even years, and the author’s understanding of how these signatures will likely affect human activity in the times to come. The author (Merriman) will do this from a perspective of a cycle’s analyst looking at the military, political, economic, and even financial markets of the world. It is possible that some forecasts will be made based on these factors. However, the primary goal is to both educate and alert the reader as to the psychological climate we are in, from an astrological perspective. The hope is that it will help the reader understand these psychological dynamics that underlie (or coincide with) the news events and hence financial markets of the day.
