"Creating the Gold Standard
in Market Timing Education"


MMTA is the first and only in-depth online training course based on the principles of financial market timing as developed by Raymond A. Merriman, (CTA), as a result of over 30 years of research and professional trading experience. Much of the material used in these courses comes from Merriman’s published books, including the five volume set titled The Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing, Volumes 1-5, as well as his Sun, Moon and Silver Book: Secrets of a Silver Trader.

Raymond A. Merriman taught these courses live to 21 students over a 2-year period (2013-2014). They consist of 7 courses and 99 classes, as described more fully on this page. After each course is an extensive test, by which the student can evaluate his/her understanding of the material. Each course also contains several quizzes to enhance comprehension. Each course comes with a workbook, and the student may view the online course as often as wished.

The courses presented in this online Academy are well organized, easy to follow, and use examples from many markets, with an emphasis on stock indices, gold, and silver. These unique market-timing techniques, however, can be applied to any market. In addition, the student is mentored on how to integrate market timing techniques with trend analysis studies, price objective theories and calculations, technical analysis, and chart pattern recognition.

Once this original methodology is mastered, each student is trained on how to write a long-term and short-term market report for those who wish to become market analysts themselves. Finally, the course builds up to a climax with well-defined trading plans for position traders and short-term aggressive traders, complete with step-by-step instruction for executing a trade at the optimal time and optimal price, even during the trading day.

There is nothing else like this course available today. If you wish to gain that extra edge that all traders seek, or if you wish to learn the steps on how to become a skilled market timer or financial market analyst specializing in market timing, then these courses will be of immense value.
