This will be a very short report due to participation in the ISAR 2014 conference taking place in Phoenix, Arizona now. Off record, this is a great conference with incredible energy on Native American land. About 400-500 people present, from 23 countries.
Please note that the pre-publications specials for the Forecast 2015 book continue for one more month. Sign up now to make sure you receive the next year's copy as soon as they are printed (see Announcements above, or go to www.mmacycles.com).
Review and Preview :
This was the week that Jupiter made a fire trine aspect to Uranus, which is why ISAR chose this week for its conference.
Last week witnessed some world indices making new multi-year highs, and others formed secondary highs. Just as suddenly as those highs formed, they reversed on Thursday, only to recover sharply again on Friday. It was a very "Uranian" week (sharp rallies, sharp declines), that left last Friday's all-time highs in the U.S. equity markets intact, and new multi-year highs in the Japanese Nikkei market exactly on the Jupiter-Uranus trine day of September 25.
Gold held its yearly low, but tested it on Thursday, September 25 when it fell to 1206.60. On the same day, Silver dropped to a new multiyear low of 1727. Both markets recovered into Friday. The culprit was again the strength in the U.S. Dollar, as the Euro currency fell to a new multi-year low below 1.2700 on Friday.
Best Trades of the Past Week :
The best new trades of the week in the weekly report were in Crude Oil, which advised, "Aggressive traders are flat and may buy 90.50 +/- .25, with a stop-loss on a close below 90.00". The low last week was 90.58 and it closed at 93.54.
Although it is too early to tell how these will work out, the best new trade in the daily report may have been in SLV, the Silver ETF, which on Wednesday advised, " Aggressive short-term traders are short, after covering 1/3 for profit Monday. Let's cover remainder and go long at 16.85-16.92 if offered, with a stop-loss on a close below 16.60". The low that day was 16.82 and it closed the week at 16.90. Or it was in T-Notes, which advised, "Position traders may buy in daily support (124/11-124/12) with a stop-loss on a close below xxx. Aggressive traders may also buy in daily support, but with a stop-loss on a close below xxx". The low was 124/09 and the close was 124/14. Again, it's too early to tell how this will work out.

Short-Term Geocosmics :
Since time is limited to write this week, I will just repeat last week's comments, with the addendum that our attention will now shift to the lunar eclipse of October 8. That eclipse will make a T-square with the Uranus-Pluto waxing square, so nothing is settled. The markets are still prone to large price swings and sudden whipsaws, even this week, as the time band for its influence begins shortly. Plus, this Friday, October 3, will be the release of the monthly jobs reports.
And now, last week's comments..
The week begins with the cosmic fog of Mars square Neptune on Sunday, September 21. Mars is always in a hurry, and Neptune is not sure where it wants to go. At least Mars is in Sagittarius, so it knows it wants to go somewhere, and fast. It just needs a plan to go with its wishes. Financial markets may do some zig-zag motion this week. It may fake as if it is going down (or up), and then whiplash itself back to where it originally wanted to go. As traders, we have to be careful of these kinds of fake outs.
The next day the Sun enters Libra. Autumn starts its new season here in the northern hemisphere. In astrology, we call that the autumnal equinox, which provides an important chart for understanding the next three months. These next three months promise to be very intense - and dangerous. Pluto turns direct on the same day, so this season will be Plutonian, which is to say, intense and dangerous. We have already seen signs of Pluto, god of the underworld, rearing its ugly head by decapitating noted journalists via the ISIS group. Pluto, with Uranus square, remains a dangerous terrorist-activity period. In fact, it will last through March 2015, with highlights around November 11 and March 11 when Mars conjuncts first Pluto, and then Uranus. This is not a time to take risks in dangerous places.
But Pluto also rules debt, deficits, and defaults. and taxes. The Fed meetings last week seemed to suggest that the economy is growing in strength, but yet the Fed doesn't want to let interest rates return to "normal", as if they or anyone really understands what is or will be "normal" ever again following this 2008-2105 Cardinal Climax. Nevertheless, they did use that word "normal" in their projections - with no time line attached to it. There was vague mention that "normal" could return in 2017. I would say it returns after 2020-2022, but the peak of this abnormal period will pass after March 2015. It's what happens between November and March that has me concerned, because that's the last two (of seven) passages of Uranus square Pluto. With Pluto and Uranus changing directions in September and December, they don't go far apart from that exact mathematical square to one another.
I am sure everyone is numb by now after the last seven years of tribulation of this Cardinal Climax. The lighter fare, however, may be present this week in the form of Jupiter trine Uranus, from Leo to Sagittarius on September 25. This is truly a welcome aspect. Trines usually are welcome, because they often bring rewards. The stock market and U.S. Dollar are certainly examples of this as of late. This may be even more pronounced, however, because Mars is in Jupiter's home sign of Sagittarius through October 26, which gives the impetus for equities (and personal net worth) to continue their climb to new records.
Yet this is the week Jupiter will trine Uranus, which has principles of irrational exuberance to it, as well as reversal potentials. Will Uranus act like a reversal now, or will it just explode beyond all levels of resistance (or support). Uranus doesn't like either support or resistance zones. It likes to violate all boundaries and enter levels never seen before. Mars in Sagittarius can propel that. But if it does reverse, Mars in Sagittarius could support that too, as prices can reverse with a force also not expected. As stated before, this is a time to make huge profits, or suffer huge losses. For us, it is starting out quite good. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.
Longer-Term Thoughts :
will return later.
To be continued (next week).
What's Next ??? Now that the 2008-2015 Cardinal Climax will wind down in early 2015, what is the next great challenge awaiting humanity ?.

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 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 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.
No guarantee as to the accuracy of this report is being made here.

Reader should understand that futures and options trading are considered high risk.Valeur des terres Robert Loquet - Conseiller général
