Note : The purpose of this column is to provide educational insights into the tenets of geocosmic studies as they correspond to economic, political, and socio-psychological matters, as one of several tools that in turn may assist in the practice of financial market timing. This column is not intended, nor should it be used, as an advisory service for trading financial markets, without use of other financial market analysis tools. MMA subscription reports provide that type of advisory service, with specific recommendations for trading.

Review and Preview :

Former White House chief economic advisor Gary Cohn lashed out at some of his former colleagues, charging in an interview that the U.S. is losing the trade war as administration officials pursue a strategy that hasn't worked. Cohn specifically pointed his finger at Peter Navarro, who serves as director of the National Trade Council, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for drawing the country into a misdirected tariff battle. "Tariffs don't work. If anything, they hurt the economy because if you're a typical American worker, you have a finite amount of income to spend", the former Goldman Sachs executive told Freakonomics Radio in an interview broadcast Wednesday. "If you have to spend more on the necessity products that you need to live, you have less to spend on the services that you want to buy". - Jeff Cox, "Gary Cohn Lashes Out at Former White house Colleagues : Living in Chaos", https://www.cnbc.com, March 17, 2019.

British lawmakers unexpectedly ruled out a no-deal exit from the European Union, throwing Prime Minister Teresa May's Brexit strategy into further confusion on Wednesday. - Stephen Fidler and Jason Douglas, "U.K. Lawmakers Say No Deal, No Brexit", Wall Street Journal, March 14, 2019.

It was another week highlighting the mutable and quickly changing activities of Mercury retrograde, "the Trickster". It is in Pisces. no less, the sign associated with the dynamics of confusion, rumors, gossip, and the blame-game. This is not a time to believe what you read or hear. It is a time that requires one to trust their own intuition and inner voice, and if unclear, just stand aside and relax. By all means, avoid stressful confrontations. Mercury retrograde in Pisces does not fare well in situations that cause the stress level to escalate.

Equity markets around the world enjoyed a mostly positive week. In European indices, new highs for 2019 were recorded in the German DAX, Zurich SMI, and the Amsterdam AEX. The London FTSE came close, and all ended higher for the week following pullbacks into March 7-11.

In Asia and the Pacific Rim, it was a mixed story. The big gainer was India's Nifty Index, which was up strongly all week. The other indices were all down into March 8-13, but by Friday they were mostly up again, but not above the highs of early March.

In the Americas, all the major indices we track made new highs for the year, except the Argentine Merval Index, which was down hard all week.

In other markets, Crude Oil marched to a new high for 2019 on Friday, March 15. Metals behaved rather peculiarly, but certainly consistent with geocosmic indicators for the week. That is, both Gold and Silver rallied smartly off their lows of March 7, the prior week. But those sharp rallies ended on Wednesday, March 13, when both metals suddenly turned down sharply. This sudden and unexpected turn is typical of Mercury retrograde, and more so when the Moon is in Gemini, Mercury's ruling sign. That is a very "jittery" combination. Live Cattle, our choice for a "big move up market" with Uranus in Taurus, also had an interesting two weeks. On March 1, it rose to a new multi-month high of 130.45. It then fell back to 126.32 on March 12. But by Friday, March 15, it was back onto another rally. Live Cattle analysis will be featured in this week's MMA Cycles Report (see below), for those interested.

Short-Term Geocosmics and longer term thoughts :

This is another "shift" week from the cosmic perspective. First of all, March 16-17 is the midpoint of Mercury retrograde (March 5-28). Any market that did not complete a cycle high or low nearby to the retrograde date is a candidate to reverse within 2 trading days of the retrograde's midpoint, which is now.

Second, March 20 is both the Vernal equinox (start of Spring) and a full moon. Changing seasons, and transitioning from the last sign of the zodiac (Pisces) to the first sign (Aries), is always considered a powerful shift in the study of Mundane Astrology. Occurring on a full Moon is even more powerful. Technically, the first Sunday after the full Moon in Aries marks the Easter holiday for Christians. But for some reason, that isn't happening this year. It's going to happen on Sunday following the next full Moon on April 21. Someone missed the calendar marker. Nevertheless, the Sun moving from Pisces to Aries is like going from a deep sleep or meditation to being very active, even aggressive and warlike. In Pisces, we want to contemplate how it all "feels". In Aries, we want to take action. Yet, with Mercury still retrograde in Pisces through March 28, not everyone is ready to take action. There is still a number of leaders who want to "talk it over" more until they "feel" better about what they must do, if they can just figure out what that is. It's not easy under these conditions.

The urge to initiate action, however, is likely to be powerful this weekend. On March 20, Mars will form a harmonious trine with Pluto, and the next day, March 21, Venus will form a challenging square aspect to Mars. Mars rules Aries. Mars, like Aries, wants action. But in square aspect to Venus (planet of agreements and compromises), and with Mercury still retrograde in Pisces, it is doubtful that any new action will go smoothly. The "blame-game" is apt to be in full bloom this spring season.

In terms of equity markets, we note that transiting Mars will be conjunct to the Sun and Mercury in the NYSE founding chart (May 17, 1792), and square its Pluto in late Taurus. This transit will be operative March 18-27, and often coincides with a sharp decline from a crest that happens just before then. In other words, this continues to be a market best suited for short-term, aggressive traders. Position trading will be highlighted again after next week. Thus, one must remember this week that "patience is a virtue" in communications, but probably a liability in short-term trading.

Longer-Term thoughts and Geocosmics :

             April 26, 2019 7 P.M. : Boulder, Colorado".Forecasts for Financial Markets and USA Economy and Political climate : an evening with Ray Merriman. With Jupiter and Neptune in their ruling signs and square to one another, the principle of exaggeration in hopes and fears is present in all walks of life, including the economy, stock market and other financial markets, and politics. This combination only happens every 166-167 years, and this time is quite important because it is followed by the Capricorn Stellium in 2020. In this presentation, Ray will discuss the cosmic set up in 2019 and the "edge of the cliff" ahead in 2020, and what you can do to protect yourself and help others through what could be a turbulent period, but one with excellent investment possibilities as well. The location of this talk will be Room 9235 at the Naropa Nalanda Campus in Boulder, Colorado, 6287 Arapahoe Road, at the intersection of 63 rd and Arapahoe. The cost is $45 if registered before April 1, and $55 afterwards. Sponsored by ROMA, the Rocky Mountain Astrological Association. For registration, contact Patti Simmers at 720-989-8822, or via email at patti.simmers@comcast.net. Attendance will be limited to 80 persons. Sign up early.

             June 8-16, 2019 : "Geocosmic Correlations to Trading Cycles", Beijing, China. A two-weekend intensive Market Trading workshop/retreat with Raymond Merriman. This 32-hour class intensive workshop will focus on the primary cycle and its phases - the half-primary, major, and trading cycles - and how to determine when they are due. Then, we will identify geocosmic signatures - Levels 1, 2, and 3 - as the basis for calculating CRDs (Critical Reversal Dates), to narrow the time band down for an important cycle reversal. Within that time, we will identify and discuss specific technical and charting tools that will further enhance the timing of a major market reversal, and the price target range to look for. In this analysis, we will also explore the use of 60- 30-, and 5-minutes charts for even more accurate entry and exit points. With these tools, we will then construct a daily and/or weekly trading plan, as used in MMA Daily and Weekly Reports, using current market situations. The workshop will take place on the weekends of June 8-9 and June 15-16. During the week, participants will have the option of taking tours with other MMA students to exciting areas of China. The cost for this unique and valuable trading retreat is $4000 (discounts will be available to subscribers of MMA Reports). For further information, please contact MMA at customerservice@mmacycles.com or call 1-248-626-3034 or 1-800-MMA-3349.

             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 dukeoneil1@gmail.com, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at ted.fisher@comcast.net. 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.

             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 ( www.goldswitzerland.com). 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.
