The Market Week in Review :

Equity markets around the world were mostly up last week following the USA's retreat from a threatened military strike on Syria, as a result of a peace initiative launched by none other than Vladimir Putin of Russia. The first three days of last week saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average post consecutive triple digit gains. This is classical market behavior in a new primary cycle, and also fits with our geocosmic statements made in last week's column as follows : "Next Saturday, September 14 finds Mars trine Uranus and Venus trine Neptune. Trines are generally considered favorable in the study of astrology, so maybe equities (Venus) can continue their rally into this time, +/- 3 trading days".

The fate of Gold and Silver was not so fortunate. Both fell sharply after the Russian peace initiative was launched - and then conditionally accepted by the USA. By the end of last week, Gold was testing 1300. Just two weeks ago, it was peaking at 1434. Silver fell below 2150 late last week. On August 28, it was above 2500. Late Friday, however, both staged impressive reversals. Crude Oil also fell (but not nearly as much as Gold and Silver) on the hopes that Syria will agree to turn over all of its chemical weapons to United Nations representatives, thereby averting a certain and immediate Middle East conflict. This will be very interesting, because the peace broker Putin still insists Assad does not have these chemical weapons, yet Assad agrees to turn them over if the USA will in turn agree to stop threatening him with a military strike, even if it will be an "unbelievably small" strike, according to Secretary of State John Kerry. With the next Uranus-Pluto waxing square passage quickly approaching November 1, one has to wonder how long this "aversion of the inevitable" will last... how long this "red line in the sand", Part II, will be respected.

Judging by the markets of last week, investors are taking this Putin peace initiative seriously and positively. I think most Mundane Astrologers would beg to differ. I wonder what Angela Merkel thinks ?. We should know that soon enough as the German elections take place this week, on September 22. It will also be interesting to watch the Federal Reserve. Everybody is watching the Federal Reserve now, to see if in fact they will announce the start of their own retreat from their monthly bond buying programs of the past three years when the Cardinal Climax of summer 2010 was in full gear. If they do, it could get... turbulent, depending of the size of their unwinding - if they unwind at all.

Best Trades of the Past Week :

The best trade of the week in the weekly subscription report was in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which advised, "Aggressive traders are now long with a stop-loss on a close below 14,640... Let's now cover all and sell short at 15,350 +/- 50, with a stop-loss on a close above the recent high of 15,658". The high of the week was on Friday at 15,380, but it closed at 15,376, so it is too early to tell whether this trade will work out or not.

The best trade in the daily report was in the September E-Mini NASDAQ, which on Wednesday, September 11, advised "... Aggressive traders are flat and may buy daily support (3162-3164) with a stop-loss on a close below 3149". The low was 3159 and it closed the week at 3177. Or, it may have been in the GLD, the Gold ETF, which on Friday, Sept 13, advised traders to "... buy today at 127 +/- .10 if offered, with a stop-loss on a close below 124". The low was 126.21, and after the market closed, it was trading above 128.

Short-Term Geocosmics :  

The favorable trine aspects of September 14 will give way to the hard Venus-Saturn conjunction on September 18, followed by the even harsher stationary direct movement of Pluto on September 20. In between, there is a full moon on September 19. Yet even more potent is the Saturn-North Node (of Moon) conjunction taking place in early Scorpio on September 25.

As with all Saturn transits, the Venus-Saturn conjunction offers a buying opportunity for any market declining into it within two trading days (think metals). It just so happens that that same day - September 18 - Heliocentric Mercury enters Sagittarius, an ingress that Financial Astrologer Jeanne Long identified as a particularly volatile period for Gold and Silver several years ago. We just sent out a special report to our Gold and Silver traders on what to expect then. However, since Ms. Long's report on this geocosmic signature in the 1980's, we have found other markets also make large price swings, including currencies and Soybeans. The full moon of September 19 (one day later) could also activate the Soybean market with a sharp reversal this week. Pluto going stationary direct the next day, September 20, is also a signature of possible reports of damage to crops within one week.

Yet Pluto direct, followed by Saturn conjunct the Lunar North Node on September 25, is a very serious indicator of other problems in the world... like Syria, Russia, and the USA. As stated last week, "The Saturn-Lunar South Node conjunction is approximately an 11-year cycle. The last time in happened was June 6, 2002. World stock markets were falling into their 4-year cycle troughs, in October 2002 in the USA and in March 2003 for the rest of the world. It was also the time the United States was trying to build an international coalition to bring down Saddam Hussein. The allegation then was that Hussein and Iraq were stockpiling chemical weapons of mass destruction. You see these themes repeating over and over again in Mundane Astrology and you wonder : why "they" don't see this". Well, last week, maybe they did see this. Who knows ? Maybe someone in Moscow or Washington D.C. realized the connection between then and now after all.

Longer Term Thoughts :

I have no additional longer-term thoughts for this week. They are included in the above sections.

To be continued (next week).

             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 dukeoneil1@gmail.com, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at ted.fisher@comcast.net. 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 theBest 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 identifiesBig 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 thatextra 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.

No guarantee as to the accuracy of this report is being made here. Any decisions in financial markets are solely the responsibility of the reader, and neither the author nor the publishers assume any responsibility at all for those individual decisions. Reader should understand that futures and options trading are considered high risk.
