Review and Preview :

"The Dow index is about 90 points away from hitting 20,000 points and investors have been betting every day for the index to break this elusive number. But uncertainty around Trump's policies and disappointment around Wednesday's press conference has had investors cautious". CNBC news, Friday morning, January 13,

We are now exiting the orb of the first of three Jupiter/Uranus oppositions that will take place this year, as discussed in our Special Stock Market Report of December 18. With an orb of 12 trading days, the Jupiter/Uranus opposition has historically the highest correlation to primary or greater cycles in the U.S. stock indices (i.e. the Dow Jones Industrial Average) of all geocosmic signatures analyzed since 1928, as reported in The Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing, Volume 3 : Geocosmic Correlations to Trading Cycles. Sometimes this aspect occurs in a 3-phase passage series, due to the retrograde of Jupiter, and sometimes it is a single passage event. In this instance, it will be a 3-passage series, occurring December 26, 2016, March 2, and September 27, 2017. Given the 12-trading day orb, the first passage on December 26 ended its reign of influence on January 12. The highest mark in the DJIA, so far, has been 19,999 on Monday, January 6. However, another passage will occur shortly, on March 2, 2017. That one is apt to even more important because it occurs just two calendar days before Venus turns retrograde, on March 2.

The stock market, however, is not the only financial market that may have formed a primary cycle (high or low) during the orb of 12 trading days surrounding December 26. The Euro and Swiss Franc currencies fell to multi-month lows on January 3. The same day, the U.S. Dollar surged to a 103.82, its highest level since December 31, 2002. Crude oil made a multi-month high then as well. Soybeans made their low a day later, on Jan 4. Treasuries and Gold made possible primary cycle lows before the aspect, on December 15-16, but didn't start their robust rallies until the aspect passed.

Short-Term Geocosmics & longer-term THOUGHTS :

The only major geocosmic signature arising this week is the war-like Mars/Saturn square of Thursday, January 19, just one day before Donald Trump is to be inaugurated as the next USA president. This is an important Mars/Saturn square because it occurs at 23° Pisces and Sagittarius, forming a grand square to the USA Mars/Neptune. It also falls in the same degrees as Iran's Mars/Neptune square, and close to Donald Trump's Sun/Moon opposition (lunar eclipse) at 21-22° of Gemini and Sagittarius. The concern is that protests against Mr. Trump may turn violent, as his opponents are still having a hard time accepting the fact that he won the electoral college, and hence the election, despite a deficit of 2.8 million popular votes to Hillary Clinton.

It is interesting being here in Europe at this time, where many of the people I have spoken with in Germany and Netherlands believe that Trump is a puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Many view Putin as highly intelligent and clever - more so than Trump. They see Putin as the puppet master, or in some cases, a chess master. However, many Trump supporters (especially in America), seem to think the opposite - that it is Trump who is the more intelligent one (with his alleged IQ of 171, according to one report) and Putin will follow Trump's lead, as if Trump is the puppet master and Putin the puppet.

We shall learn much in the first 100 days of the new administration, for we are not only in the midst of the first two Jupiter/Uranus oppositions, but also in the heart of a cardinal T-square involving Jupiter, Pluto, and Uranus, December through March. These are geocosmic patterns of surprises, the unpredictable, and they often correspond to wild moves in financial markets. On top of that, another powerful geocosmic signature of reversals in stock indices takes place March 4 when Venus turns retrograde in approximately the same degree of the zodiac as on March 6, 2009, when the 75-year stock market cycle bottomed, and the current bull market began.

Get ready for some exciting days ahead.

             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. 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.
