Review and Preview :

It is simply amazing how fast the news changes these days. It is hard to believe that last week the world was on edge about Greece and Iran. This week, that is old news and the buzz is about Donald Trump and his admission that being a third party candidate is a real possibility. Where did you first read about that ?.

Last week it looked like many of the world's stock indices were about to blow off to new multi-year and all-time highs. Two did - the Zurich SMI index and the USA NASDAQ. This week, they all look like they are about to fall to new multi-month lows, and a new bear market may be starting. Welcome to middle of the Venus/Uranus/Saturn triple change of direction. We are in it now, and this last week was perfect reflection of what it portends. Everything appeared one way last week, and the opposite way this week.

Not only that, but Venus and Uranus turning retrograde this weekend have already begun to strike. Last week's column stated, "When Uranus is activated with Venus, personal libidos shake too. It is a fascinating time to be attracted to new people. It may not be so fascinating for those already in established long-term relationships. Long-term partnerships (romantic or political) may be strained. The new flirt may be exciting and intriguing, but it isn't good for the security of the established partnership. It takes such a long-time to build trust, and such a short time to ruin it". Did I mention (in scores of columns previously) that Uranus also rules computers ?. Last week, the dating site for married people who like to cheat, AshleyMadison, got hacked. The hackers threatened to expose the names of all the men - like, 37 million users are involved. Now, that's a lot of cheating going on, caught by another group of cheaters known as hackers, which is part of a large international cheating problem going on today. The bigger problem is not the cheaters of the "Life is Short Have an Affair" website, but the ever increasing breach of internet security by these real cheaters of the world - the dark night thieves that found their destiny during the three-year transit of Uranus square Pluto, June 2012 through March 2015. They are coming out of the woodwork, destroying lives and businesses, like termites on steroids. Uranus rules computers. Pluto rules loss of... everything. But with Pluto, there is an incubation period before the real damage becomes known. That incubation period is over, and both businesses and individuals are now reaping the havoc that these new age destroyers of progress are unleashing. This, perhaps more than anything, is what may cause a serious downturn in the world economy. And it is not just lone wolf individual hackers. It is also nation states that are hacking the computers of other nation states. Innovation is hard work. It is so much easier to steal the innovation of others, especially if you know you will not have to suffer consequences.

But let's return to the markets as they are today, even though they will not be that in the future. Almost all world equity markets rallied strongly into early last week. And almost all fell hard into the end of the week. In the USA, for example, the NASDAQ (which is ruled by Uranus) made a new all-time high on Monday, July 20. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also rallied sharply into that day. But by Friday, all were down sharply, with the DJIA on the verge of falling to its lowest level in nearly six months.

Gold and Silver got clobbered too, with Gold plunging to 1072 on Friday, its lowest level since February 2010. Silver, however, fell to 1433, which is still above its 1415 low of December 1, 2014. Crude Oil fell hard too, down to 46.72 on Friday, its lowest mark since March when it bottomed at 42.03, as the 7 th and final Uranus/Pluto square unfolded. And yet, immediately after the COMEX futures market closed on Friday, Gold started a torrid $30 rally. How thoughtful of traders to wait until the major markets closed to buy the yellow metal back. But you know what ? It fits perfectly with our special report sent out to subscribers one week ago, and the update given to our daily subscribers on Friday, July 24. We will discuss in greater detail what this means - and what strategies traders are advised to deploy on Monday -for our weekly subscribers of Gold and Silver, as well as stocks, which gets released this Saturday.

Short-Term Geocosmics :  

There is not much to add to last week's column, which described the market climate in effect right now. Big changes are brewing as Mars squares Uranus while Venus turns retrograde on Saturday, July 25. The next day, July 26, Uranus turns retrograde. On August 1-2, Saturn will turn retrograde, and on August 3, Jupiter and Saturn will form a square to one another. There is also a blue moon next Friday, July 31.

The big changes are in the mundane, geopolitical world, central banking policies, and financial markets. Big eruptions are also possible with Mother Nature, for Uranus with Saturn rules earthquakes and electrical failures, as well as startling computer hacks. On the positive side, this is a time of great excitement and surprising revelations or news events. However, it is not a time of stability, so if things don't go well, just wait an hour or so and they could suddenly change. Of course, it goes the opposite of that too. Don't get complacent when things go well, and don't get upset if things seem to not go well. Things are not what they seem right now. Don't get used to it. You can't. Just be flexible. The more rigid you are, the more it hurts. The more adaptable you are, the more you will be able to see new opportunities you never thought possible.

As Deepak Chopra chants in one of his mediation recordings: "Every decision you make is a choice between a complaint and a miracle". Choose the miracle.

Longer-Term Thoughts and mundane astrology :

Our childish moment is passing. America has real problems. Vanity is indeed the totality of the Trump business model these days, getting paid for his self-image, seeking credit for non-achievements. Maybe it's time for something different in the Whiter House. Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., "The Phenomenal Trump", Wall Street Journal, July 22, 2015.

But Mr. Trump hasn't ruled out taking his White House run independent.. "I will have to see how I am being treated by the Republicans", Mr. Trump said in the interview. "Absolutely, if they are not fair, that would be a factor". Reid J. Epstein, "Trump Is With the GOP, for Now", Wall Street Journal, July 24, 2015.

By publicly rebuking the billionaire businessman for his inflammatory comments, the party (Republican) may convince Trump to launch a third party candidacy. That's a potential nightmare for the GOP establishment. MJ Lee, "GOP Nightmare : An Independent Donald Trump", CNN, July 24, 2015.

It looks as if our column last week may have started a firestorm by suggesting that Donald Trump (and Bernie Sanders) could launch third (and fourth) party bids for the White House in 2016, as Saturn will be back in Sagittarius shortly. Specifically, the column stated, "It's a recipe currently for the creation of new political parties, which will probably come about when Saturn (government and politics) returns to Sagittarius ("more is good"), after mid-September. Imagine the 2016 USA presidential race involving Hillary versus Jeb, running against the two new parties headed by Bernie and the Donald. No one gets a majority". And with that, the major news services began questioning The Donald about his intentions - and he agrees it is possible.

The next question, of course, is : does he have a chance ?. According to various sources on the internet, Donald Trump's birth certificate says he was born under a full Moon on June 14, 1946, 10:54 AM, in Queen's New York. If this is correct, Hillary and Jeb and Bernie can all relax. To me, it does not appear to be the chart of the next president, although he has Mars in Leo, the most common placement of USA presidents according to the studies conducted by Michael O'Reilly of But so does Hillary Clinton, who is a Scorpio. Jeb Bush does not. However, Jeb Bush is an Aquarian, which is the most populous sun sign of USA presidents. Plus the Moon is in Aquarius on Election Day, which favors Aquarians in general that day.

However, in the horoscope of Donald Trump, transiting Saturn is near the bottom of his chart, with his natal Moon. This is not the chart of someone who is the most popular person in the country at that time. If per chance he does win, expect a war shortly afterwards, for the Sun position of his natal full Moon falls very close in a hard aspect to America's Mars. His natal full Moon will also be hit by the transit of Saturn in early 2017. He may be good for business and the USA economy, as his natal Mercury (business) falls in conjunction with America's Venus, Jupiter and Sun (all benefics and planets of success). But that might just describe the fact that he has enjoyed great financial success personally in the USA. It does not mean he will be the president, unless the USA is entering a war, and the voters feel he would be the best Commander in Chief. I, however, am not sure that this combination means that he would be an effective Commander in Chief. He may be able to create and engage in a war, but I am not certain he - or any candidate - would win a war, since the USA's progressed Mars is now retrograde until about 2080. That retrograde Mars began in - guess what ? - 2008-2009, if we use July 2, 1776 as the real date of the vote for the Declaration of Independence. The USA is more on a peace (or surrender) mission as of 2008 than a war dance, for better or worse. The Donald just doesn't fit this paradigm.

Now Bernie Sanders, on the other hand... well, that is for another column. They all are. The candidates will be covered in the Forecast 2016 Book, and also at the ISAR 2016 Symposium in Los Angeles, California in October 2016 (, which promises to be the most exciting astrological forecasting gathering ever. Mark the dates : October 13-17, 2016.

To be continued (next week).

             The MMA Catalogue of products and services for 2015 is now out!!! You can download it in PDF. The ordering page is the last page of the catalogue. This is especially useful for those outside of the USA, since we do not mail these out by mail unless requested.

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

             It is with great pleasure that I announce the addition of Egon von Greyerz to MMA Investment Retreat faculty of presenters. I met Egon last week in Girona, Spain, at a special gathering attended by MMTA Graduates Nitin Bhandari (India), Philipp Beyer (Germany), Henry Canciglia (USA) and myself. Egon is an expert on Gold. He owns Matterhorn Asset Management, a Swiss Asset Management company specializing in wealth preservation, located in Zurich ( He was also the person who initiated the "Save Our Swiss Gold" Act in Switzerland late last year, which would have required the Swiss National Bank to back up their assets with 20% Gold holdings. The initiative failed, but his reasons for initiating this effort are still valid. Egon is very interested in MMA cycles' work, and will share his outlook on Gold and the world debt. This is a real treat!

             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.
