Review and Preview :
Another cosmic transition is upon us.
Two important ingresses end - and begin - this week. Mars will leave Scorpio for Sagittarius, and heliocentric Mercury will end its trek through Sagittarius and start anew in Capricorn. Neither of these passages correlated with strong up moves in precious metals in this last instance, which has been their primary historical correspondence over the past 40 years in well over 70% of instances studied. The lack of correlation this time points out the importance of understanding the field of financial astrology from a qualitative viewpoint, and not solely quantitative or statistical.
Mars in Scorpio did indeed behave on the world stage as one might expect, given the dynamics of both the planet and the sign. That is, the last six weeks witnessed the qualities of aggression and bombast, combined with gruesome and gory details of such things as beheadings and promises of revenge. It was not a pretty six weeks of Mars in Scorpio, as world tensions and unrest over renewed terrorist activities have increased. A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll on September 9 reports that "The percentage of Americans who believe the United States is less safe is at its highest point since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks".
So the world is less safe and terrorism/war threats are on the rise as we start a new war against ISIS. These were similar to key factors in the past during Mars-in-Scorpio passages that resulted is sharply rising Gold prices. But not this time. Why? Probably because the Dollar has become king of currencies again and the Euro currency is falling hard, due to the European Central Bank's decision to start up their own brand of quantitative easing the prior week. As a result, the Euro fell hard - and may continue falling lower and lower. It is now conceivable that the Euro could fall to par with the U.S. Dollar in the next 1-2 years. And as stated last week, "It is also true that when the Dollar rises against other currencies, commodities tend to fall. Thus, precious metals and foods also came down hard last week". Both precious metals and grains continued to fall last week to new multi-month lows.
This "failure" of Mars-in-Scorpio to correlate with bullish activity this time around in the Gold market was covered in a special report sent out to MMA subscribers on August 21, which stated, "The 1281 level has now been broken on the overnight markets. The "Mars at 13° Scorpio" did not hold it. The Venus-Jupiter conjunction of August 18 did not hold. ... For whatever reasons (and really, there are a few reasons, such as the rising U.S. Dollar), this is a case where Mars in Scorpio is clearly not unfolding in a bullish manner as it has so often in the past". That's the thing about geocosmic studies (financial astrology) that people don't usually understand : it is qualitative more than quantitative, but it yields enough favorable quantitative results to make to make it the most consistent tool for market timing purposes. Unfortunately it is not a 100% correlation to a market top or bottom. But then, what is more accurate ? Nothing that I have found after more than 30 years of studies.
The end of Mars in Scorpio and heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius is not proving to be advantageous for equities either. After posting new yearly and even all-time highs the first week of September, within three trading days of our August 29 three-star critical reversal date, most world stock indices have struggled. Most were down last week, with the exception of the Japanese Nikkei and Chinese Shanghai indices, which soared to their highest level since January.
But next week is a new day. Mars enters Sagittarius. This promises large price moves, for Mars is always in a race to be first or best (strongest or meanest), and Sagittarius likes things big. So look for big rallies or big busts (or both) in financial markets over the next six weeks.
Best Trades of the Past Week :
The best new trade of the week in the weekly report was in the Euro currency, which advised, "Aggressive traders were flat and may... buy weekly support (below 1.2859) with a stop-loss on a close below 1.2800". The low was 1.2858 and the close was around 1.2945.
The best new trade in the daily report was also in the September Euro currency, which advised, "Aggressive traders are flat and may buy daily support (1.2869-1.2873) with a stop-loss on a close below 1.2830". The low was 1.2860.
At the end of the week, traders were advised, "Let's exit now, and even go short at 1.2925 +/- .0010 with a stop-loss on a close above 1.3020". The close last week was 1.2949.

Short-Term Geocosmics :
The main cosmic development this week is Mars ingressing into Sagittarius, September 13-October 26. After that it moves into Capricorn (October 26-December 4). I mention both signs because in a study I conducted on Crude Oil several years ago (and reported in The Mountain Astrologer (www.mountainastrologer.com), Mars in Sagittarius-Capricorn had the greatest correlation to large price swings. It turns out it also has a high correlation to military tensions in the Middle East, and threats to Israel from her neighbors. With Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, and square Uranus on November 11, this particular transit of Mars through Sagittarius-Capricorn might be especially dangerous for that region.
On a qualitative level, Mars in Sagittarius combines two fiery and dynamic principles. This stands to be a very active period filled with many important events, or promises/threats of large events. When positive, it is very speculative and bullish for equities. You get the high volume of market trades with Mars in fire, and you get large price activity with the influence of Sagittarius. Given that Uranus is also in a fire sign (Aries), records in financial markets and sporting events may be witnessed.
In fact, a major fire trine aspect between Jupiter (in Leo) and Uranus (in Aries) takes place on September 25, and Mars will make it grand trine lasting into the first ten days of October. If the world can avoid imploding or exploding, this could be a dynamic boost to world equity markets. All that fire energy, involving all these macho planets, could result in something quite spectacular. This column focuses mostly upon financial markets, but it may also coincide with "shock and awe" regarding military displays, such as the USA and its coalition coming down hard on ISIS. Or perhaps it is Russia coming down hard on Ukraine. Or somebody coming down hard on someone else in a gigantic display of firepower and pyrotechnics.
Whatever it is, the desire to act may be "over the top". This brings us to the not-so-positive possibilities for market reaction. As bullish as this combination is on its own without implosion or explosion, it has to be stated that implosion/explosion is a real possibility. If markets start to fall, these same principles can suddenly reverse from overconfidence and bravado to hysteria and panic. If markets rise, it could be spectacular. If markets fall, it can be equally spectacular. And if they rise sharply at first, they could then reverse and fall just as sharply, perhaps after or during the next eclipse set, which takes place October 8 (lunar) and October 23 (solar). The October 8 lunar eclipse is powerful because it sets off the Uranus-Pluto waxing square, making it an even more potent cardinal T-square.
There is a lot of money to be made trading in financial markets these next few weeks. Of course, that means there is a lot of risk of loss too. Keep in mind that financial astrology principles also pertain to mundane and social realms as well. There is an equal amount of opportunity and risk in one's work setting as well as one's personal relationships. You have a choice : either have a lot of fun and good will with people you like, or speak your mind without thinking diplomatically and find out how fast a friendship can turn into enemy fire.
Longer-Term Thoughts :
will return in September, after the completion of the MMTA Academy courses.

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