Review and Preview :

Due to Monday's printing deadline for the Forecast 2016 Book, this week's column will be brief. It will include the introduction to next year's Forecasts.

In financial markets last week, the biggest news was the continued strength of the U.S. Dollar, which is also highlighted in the Forecast 2016 Book . The Dollar rallied to 100.20 on Friday, November 27, where it is re-testing the yearly high of 100.39 made on March 13 as the seventh and final Uranus/Pluto waxing square was unfolding. That was its highest level since April 2003. Due to the retrograde of Uranus, these two planets are returning within one-degree of that square aspect in December-January.

As the Dollar rallies, Gold and Silver continue to fall. Both made new 5-6 year lows last week, with Silver dropping to 1385 on Monday, November 23, and Gold testing 1050 on Friday, November 27.

World equity markets continued their rallies last week, with many reaching their highest levels since early August. However, as we enter December this week, market watchers will intensely focus on what the Federal Reserve Board will do with their short-term rates. It seems almost a given that they will announce a rate hike this month, and Friday's payroll report (December 4) will likely be the catalyst for that decision. Once again, the Moon is in Virgo, near to Jupiter and the Moon's North Node. Virgo rules jobs, and Jupiter with the Moon in Virgo suggests a good number again.

Short-Term Geocosmics :  

The current time band of geocosmic signatures will end on Sunday, November 29, with the Sun conjunct Saturn and both square to Neptune. In other words, the Sun is translating the first passage of the very important Saturn/Neptune waning square. This is a signature highlighting the conflict between illusion and reality. There is a wish to do something good in the world, but there is either a lack of understanding of how to do it (i.e. pure incompetence), or an over-reliance on abstract thought at the expense of simple practicality and common sense. Yet, this could end up being the start of solving some very important problems confronting the world. Neptune has the vision of what could be, and Saturn has the ability to bring it down into workable reality. It is a challenge, but the process to make life on earth workable begins with vision combined with realism. The most important ingredient to make it work, however, is the most difficult to attain: trust. With Neptune, success only happens when you are able to be both trustworthy, and trusting of others. Otherwise, distrust leads to paranoia and a sense (or reality) of betrayal. In classical Saturn/Neptune dynamics, everything that took time to build comes crumbling down once distrust arises.

We notice that stock markets have been slowly building back up since their bottom on August 24. Now, we find out if that slow building process was real or an illusion. Stock markets often gain ground slowly, like in steps up, but then they give it all back, as in elevators going down. That why traders like to shot markets - they make more money in less time, and the mantra for all successful traders is to identify situation of "maximum profit potential with minimal risk exposure."

Longer-Term Thoughts and mundane astrology :

... will resume next week. For this week, we share with you the opening page of Forecast 2016 below. The book goes into print this Monday and will be ready for distribution in two weeks.


•  Astrological

Saturn/Neptune waning square (36-year cycle)

Jupiter/Saturn waning square (20-year cycle)

Jupiter/Neptune opposition (13-year cycle, exact in September 2015)

•  Bottom in interest rates

•  Bottom in inflation

•  Bottom in Crude Oil

•  Demand for Water (and seawater desalinization plants)

•  Drought (food prices go up drastically)

•  Damaging Floods (increases need for supplies to rebuild damaged areas)

•  Three years of increasing war threats/possibilities (USA and Iran involved)

•  Bottom +/- 1 year in Gold's long-term cycle; Silver's low could be in

•  High in U.S. Dollar, January 2017 +/- 6 months

•  U.S. Dollar cycle forecasts a Republican president if 16-year cycle makes new high January 2016 +/- 6 months; geocosmics do not necessarily concur

These are the key bullet points for Forecast 2016. They are based on the history of the most important long-term geocosmic signatures in effect in 2016 - what happened previously during the time these planets were in the same, or similar, aspects. They also take into account the astrological meanings - the dynamics and themes - related to the planets, the type of aspect in effect, and the signs involved. This section of the column will resume after the completion of Forecast 2016, which is due December 1.

Forecast 2015 was perhaps the most accurate year for the annual Forecast Book ever. We expect the accuracy to increase even more in 2016-2018 because the geocosmic patterns that will be preset have such a high correlation to long cycles in human activity, including war and drought.

             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!

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.
