Full Description


In 2013-2014, Raymond Merriman launched MMTA – Merriman Market Timing Academy. It was a two-year program, conducted in seven courses. The first year contained four courses of 20-25 hours of instruction taught over a 3-day period for each course between March-October 2013. The second year consisted of three courses of 25-30 hours of instruction taught over a four-day period for each course, April-September 2014.

The cost of the entire two-year program was $20,000/person. The courses took place on site and in person at the Michigan State University Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan. It started with 40 students from all over the world – Australia, India, China, Sweden, South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, Canada. and the U.S. It was an intensive program, and by the end of two years, half of the original class survived. There were 20 graduates, or MMTA apprentices. Several have gone on to become market analysts in their own right. Several are analysts of various markets for the MMA Cycles report and the MMTA International Cycles Reports. To all who graduated, it was a life-changing and personally rewarding experience.

In January 2021, the second version of the Merriman Market Timing Academy will commence.

Who will benefit from this training:

The MMTA program is a two-year course. The purpose is to teach one the methodology of analyzing financial markets, and to train students in market timing skills, according to the studies developed by Raymond Merriman since 1980. Graduates of this course will receive certificates of completion, which will be recognized by others in the field as a solid grounding as a market analyst specializing in the art of market timing. Several graduates of the first MMTA program are now paid analysts for various MMA and ICR reports published monthly by MMA. Others have gone on to start their own market letters or work as analysts for other financial firms. Several have simply used the learning to manage their own – or the family’s – trading and investment accounts.

The MMTA program is most beneficial for those who wish to become excellent analysts and/or market timers. A certificate of completion will be granted to all of those who wish to be recognized as MMTA graduates. Taking exams at the end of each course, plus a final exam at the completion of all courses, is required. Also required will be research studies conducted and presented, which may do solely or with one or two other fellow students wishing to become MMTA graduates

However, one may take the course for his/her own benefit. It is not necessary to take exams or do research projects if one does not wish a certificate of completion. One may also choose to only take some or even only one of the courses.

Each class will be recorded. All students will have access to review the video recording of the classes at any time.


MMTA 2 will take place on the following dates in 2021-2022. The entire MMTA2 program is two years long. The program is broken up into 8 individual courses.
