There will be no column next week, due to preparation for the MMTA final Course taking place August 25-28
Review and Preview :
Stock markets continued their torrid rally that began August 7-8 into the early part of last week. USA stock indices, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P, made new all-time highs on Tuesday, August 26, as Venus formed a square to the Mars-Saturn conjunction, a very powerful configuration that affects many financial markets. However, the rate of ascent in these stock indices seemed to pause as the week drew to a close. They didn't fall, but they didn't advance either, which is typical of Neptune aspects. On Friday, August 29, the Sun moved into opposition to Neptune. In the field of Financial Astrology, Neptune can correlate with a euphoric attitude about markets, but it is not so energetic anymore. If markets are rising as Neptune transits unfold, the pattern is more akin to what market analysts call a "distribution top".
Gold and Silver came back a little too after plunging to new monthly lows the prior week. Once again, the promise of higher prices seemed in the cards early Thursday as Gold tested 1300 and Silver 2000. But Friday's close, Gold was back below 1290 and Silver about 19.50.
The star of the week was Crude Oil. The prior week it had bottomed at 92.50. On Friday, August 29, it closed near 96.00. This is not too surprising either, as Neptune co-rules Crude Oil.
Best Trades of the Past Week :
The best trade of the week in the weekly report was in the Sept S&P (E-Mini), which advised , "Aggressive traders are also long and (may) cover all and go short in weekly resistance (2001-2006.25) with a stop-loss on a close above 2021". The longs were established back on the week of the low (Aug 7) in the low 1900's. The high last week was 2003.75.
The best trade in the daily report was also in the Sept S&P (E-Mini), which advised on Wednesday, " Aggressive traders are flat and may go long at 1990-1995, with a stop-loss on a close below 1980". The low was 1993.50. Then on Friday, the advice was, " Aggressive traders are long with a stop-loss on a close below 1989. Cover all and go short on a rally to 2000-2002 with a stop-loss on a close above xxx". The high on Friday was 2003.75 and the last trade was at 1999.75.

Short-Term Geocosmics :
The confluence of several important geocosmic signatures was August 29, which covered a time band extending August 25 through September 3. On that midpoint was the opposition of the Sun and Neptune, one of those "irrational exuberance" combinations. Now let's see what happens next week as Mars enters the last third of Scorpio. This is a sector of the zodiac that contains the Sun and Mercury (in Taurus) in a powerful square to Pluto (in Aquarius) in the New York Stock Exchange chart, known as the "Buttonwood chart". Based on geocosmic studies alone, Mars passing through this sector, forming a potent T-square, often coincides with a brief but very sharp drop in stock indices. For instance, it would not be surprising to see the DJIA down 200-300 points at some point this week from last week's high, maybe all in one day.
Everything may get exaggerated next week compared to this past week. On September 5, heliocentric Mercury will enter Sagittarius, another combination correlating with very sharp price moves, especially in precious metals and oftentimes currencies too.
As we look around the world, we might contemplate what this all means. Mars nearing the tail of the Scorpion (through September 12) is always a dangerous combination. Those who feel they have been pushed to their limits are apt to strike back like a snake that feels its territory has been trespassed. Heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius may be indicative of a "foot in mouth" disease, where people say things too bluntly that offends others. Words can sting the first two weeks of September and lead to behaviors that could later be regretted. If you've been stung by the actions of others lately, calm down and think through carefully how best to respond. You may feel like quitting the play, or getting even with others. But to act upon that impulsively could be costly to the very goals you have set for yourself. There is another saying that applies to these types of geocosmic situations : don't bite your nose to spite your face. Stand strong, but bottom your lip, or your words may come back to haunt you.
How will this affect financial markets ? I am not certain, but I suspect adding fuel to a fire will make prices move very quickly and sharply this week, and possibly into the following week.
Longer-Term Thoughts :
will return in September, after the completion of the MMTA Academy courses.
To be continued (next week).
MMA's weekly and daily reports have been extremely accurate and profitable over the past several weeks, especially in equity indices, crude oil, and precious metals. If you are an active short-term trader, or even if you are an investor who likes to keep up with our current thoughts on financial markets, you may be interested in our Weekly or Daily Market reports. It is the only way I keep in touch with traders on a daily or weekly basis. These weekly reports give in-depth analysis of the DJIA, S&P and NASDAQ futures, Euro currency (cash and futures), Dollar/Yen cash and Yen futures, Euro-Yen cash, T-Notes, Crude Oil, Soybeans, Gold and Silver.

Both reports provide trading strategies and recommendations for position traders as well as for shorter-term aggressive traders. Subscription to the daily report also includes the weekly report. For more information, or call our offices at 1-248-626-3034. These reports are extremely valuable to those who trade ETF's (Exchange Traded Funds). And since early December, these reports have been extremely profitable. As subscriber and trader R.B. of Albuquerque, NM writes, "You have been on an incredible run for a while ; I have never seen anything like it". Well, when everything lines up just right...
The seventh and final Course in the 2-year the MMTA (Merriman Market Timing Academy) training program took place August 25-28, 2014, at the Michigan State University's Management Educational Center (MEC) in Troy, Michigan. The title of this course was "Putting It All Together: Developing Trading Plans and Optimizing Market Entry and Exit for Position and Aggressive Short-Term Traders." This course developed each part of the various investment and trading plans, using the market timing, technical, price objective, and trend indicator tools of the MMTA methodology. Special attention was given to the various buy and sell strategies for both position and aggressive traders, once the market entered the time band for a cycle, geocosmic critical reversal zone and/or solar-lunar reversal date. The markets used for examples of long-term and short-term trading plans were the DJIA, Gold, and Silver. The cost of this course is $3600, and it will be available online in about 4 weeks.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at email@example.com. 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.

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.
