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.
Stocks fell on Friday after the second U.S. case of the deadly coronavirus was confirmed, stoking concerns over the sickness' impact on the global economy. - Fred Imbert, "Dow Drops 250 Points After a Second US Coronavirus is Confirmed", www.cnbc.com, January 24, 2020.
Oil is on track for its worst week since May as the coronavirus outbreak continues to pressure prices. A slowdown in China's economy would impact demand because China is the world's largest crude oil importer. China is also the second-largest oil consumer, behind the United States. On Friday, U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures fell 2.8%, or $1.53, to $54.06, the lowest level since Nov. 1. - Pippa Stevens, "Crude Oil Drops the Most Since May on Fears Coronavirus Will Hit Growth", www.cnbc.com, January 24, 2020.
It was a mixed week for Global equity markets, with new all-time highs being recorded in Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil and the U.S. (the S&P and NASDAQ made new all-time highs, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average did not). However, after Wednesday, many of these indices started to retreat and downside momentum increased substantially on Friday when the U.S. announced a second case of the coronavirus outbreak, which was first identified in China on December 31, 2019. The Chinese Shanghai Composite was hit especially hard last week. After soaring to 3127 on January 14 (just one day past MMA's three-star critical reversal date of January 10-13), the Shanghai Composite plummeted to 2935 on Thursday, January 23, its lowest mark since December 13. Several Chinese cities have cancelled New Year's celebrations that were to begin this week.
There are, of course, astrological correlates to this deadly health illness that is spreading rapidly. First, we are still in orb of the long-term, 32-27-year Saturn/Pluto synodic cycle that was exact on January 12, 2020, at 22° Capricorn. One of the correlates to a strong Pluto signature is a "threat to life" event, which can be a natural or human-made catastrophe. As reported the past two weeks, the assassination of Iranian General Soleimani on January 3, and the Iranian response on American bases January 8, fell into this category. So does this Coronavirus outbreak, which has so far infected over 800 people and caused the Chinese government to quarantine 40 million others.
The second geocosmic factor is Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces, squared by Mars in Sagittarius. Both Neptune and Pisces pertain to viruses, maladies, epidemics, and general overall weakness, especially of the immune system. When Neptune is prominent, there is danger of infections and contagion. But there is another element to Neptune that bears considering. Often it correlates with states of hysteria and irrational fears or exuberance based on a lack of information or even misinformation. This possibility increases with Mars in the sign of exaggeration, which is Sagittarius. It will be interesting to see if this threat continues to grow past next week, when the aspects to Neptune are phased out. Or, will this be a prolonged threat to human life that lasts for several months, a possibility that could fit the dynamics of Saturn and Pluto ?.
In the meantime, the outbreak is having a chilling effect on world stock markets as the selloff gains momentum. Crude Oil prices were also being decimated as prices briefly fell below $54/barrel on Friday, their lowest level since October. Just two weeks ago, Crude Oil had soared to 65.65, its highest price since April 25. Crude Oil falls in the astrological domain of Jupiter and Neptune and the signs they rule, which are Sagittarius and Pisces.
The fear (Saturn/Pluto) and possible hysteria (Neptune) factors have led investors to seek safety in Gold again. On Friday, Gold was back to 1575 intraday, its highest mark since its 6-year high of 1613 on January 8. It is interesting to note that both Gold and Crude Oil made long-term cycle highs on January 8, in the midst of the Saturn/Pluto tensions between the U.S. and Iran. But on January 24, as the virus outbreak and the global alarm quickly spread, investors bought Gold but sold Crude Oil. It's a tale of two markets.
and longer term thoughts :
The current slew of geocosmic signatures ends January 28. That is also the day that the 12-day orb (trading days) associated with Uranus turning direct on January 10 ends too. As noted to subscribers of MMA market reports, Uranus direct is one of the strongest geocosmic correlates to the end of intermediate or longer-term cycles in U.S. stocks, within an orb of 12 trading days. Could that high of January 17 be the primary or even longer-term cycle crest ? It is possible, based solely on this geocosmic indicator, for January 17 was only five trading days later than the Uranus station.
We are now in a tight time band between January 23 and January 28 that includes the new moon in Aquarius square its ruler, Uranus (January 23-24), followed by the square of Mars in Sagittarius to Venus and Neptune in Pisces, January 26-28. These are reversal signatures for many financial markets. They also correlate with the health scare related to the coronavirus outbreak. But these same signatures can also relate to other more benign social experiences, for Venus, Neptune, and Pisces each have romantic and infatuation qualities associated with them. Thus, this is a favorable period to meet attractive new people. It might be wise to avoid kissing them at this time, however. Since Neptune and Pisces are masters of disguise, it might even be acceptable to wear a mask.
There no major geocosmic signatures after this week until Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces and Mars enters Capricorn on February 16. The first implies another bout of decision-making with a lack of sufficient information. It can also pertain to rumors or outright lies and deception.
In between now and then, the transit of Mars through Sagittarius will be interesting to observe. It will activate the charts of President Donald Trump, the U.S., and Iran in a "grand square" configuration with one another, January 28-February 10. During much of this period, transiting Mars will also make harmonious aspects to the chart of the New York Stock Exchange. It may be another case where "bad news" is good for the stock market.
Try to enjoy the magical quality part of Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces this week. Muster up the courage and romance (Mars) to invite a special someone (Venus) to share an enchanted evening with you.
Longer-Term thoughts :
To be continued (next week).

Note 2 : SPECIAL ANNUAL REPORTS ON JAPANESE, CHINESE AND GERMAN STOCK INDICES FROM MMA. This year's English edition of the Forecast 2020 Book is 250 pages, our largest ever. We think readers will be pleased with additional analysis on the three synodic cycles that will be in effect in 2020, something that has not happened in over 130 years. The correlation of these cycles to mundane, political, and economic events is fascinating, especially the research on the longest of these planetary cycles beginning this year: the 32-37 year Saturn/Pluto conjunction. It is unlikely you will find a more complete examination and explanation of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction taking place on January 12, 2020, than you will find in Forecast 2020, except via the work of Claude Weiss at www.astrodata.com.
In addition to the English edition of Forecast 2020, Raymond Merriman has written three special 9-page yearly market reports/forecasts for the Japanese Nikkei, Chinese Shanghai Composite, and the German DAX stock indices. Each of these is translated and printed in its respective Japanese, Chinese, and German book editions of Forecast 2020.
Many of our English readers and global investors may find these reports to be of special interest too. Therefore, we will make each of these reports available for purchase for $30 a piece. They are written in English and analyze each of these markets from the perspective of their long- and intermediate-term cycles, as well as citing their correlations to planetary cycles in effect in 2020, such as the history of the three major synodic cycles that will unfold next year.
If you are interested in ordering either of these three special reports on the 2020 outlook for the Nikkei, Shanghai Composite, or German DAX, please visit our Special Annual Report shop.

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 email@example.com, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.Valeur des terres Robert Loquet - Conseiller général
