Lunar cycles in stock and commodity markets have been observed since the days of traders like W.D. Gann, and were probably used by many others secretly. Is there an accepted scientific explanation for it? Not really, but I have posted some thoughts and hypotheses in the blog over the years, e.g. here.

For investors who want to work or experiment with lunar cycles in their own trading we have developed a convenient software program:


LunaticTrader 1.0 calculates all moon phases and lunar cycles which are relevant in the stock market and displays them in monthly and daily charts. It helps you to anticipate the market action in the day(s) and weeks ahead, and it takes no more than a few minutes of your time. Includes tutorials for use of the program.

The free trial shows you the lunar cycles since 1900. Registration will unlock all the cycles charts until the year 2100.

Registered users receive:

  • lifetime license for the software (password sent by email).
  • bonus ebook with tips and strategies for using the Lunar cycles.
  • free upgrades and customer support.

The software is designed to work on Windows PC (Win 98, XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8, Win 10, Win 11).

  1. Hi Danny, how do you measure the “good moon phase” performace vs. “bad moon phase” performance? Do you enter the close before the green period begins and exit the close of the last “green phase” day? Or different? – Thanks.

    1. Hi. For the purpose of the tracking page, kept at , we use daily closing prices. Sometimes the change from green to red (or red to green) period falls during market trading hours. Then we use 12 noon NY time as the cut-off. So if a green period ends on a given day at 1 pm then that day’s close will be used as end price for the given green period. If the green period ends at 11 am then the close of the previous day is used and today is considered the first day of the new red period.

      1. Hi Vorfahrt, I have been working with Lunatic Trader for a while. It’s been a constant experiment and sometimes I am in sync with my stocks other times no so much. I am all alone with my tests and studies. if you like we could join efforts and ideas if you are interested on LT. Send me an email and we can chat. Thanks!

      2. Realistic expectations are very important. Some people watch the lunar cycles here, and after a few good months they try it. Then they write me to ask why it is not working the next month. One should not expect more than 60% accuracy, because that’s the long term historic average for the lunar cycle. It is always better to start using it after a mediocre or bad period. See:

      3. Hi Danny, I am very satisfied with LT. Will always push you for next version to add new features. LT has proven itself for over 2 years now with my strategies. My latest test in all March 2019 produced 70% accuracy under strict conditions and beyond that over more +% if I lax the rules. I learned how to expand and use the software to forecast stocks. Current test is putting a 90 day forecast to the test. Not all stocks are ideal for LT and trying to unlock those particular conditions. All I can say is Thank you Danny!

      4. Thanks for the thumbs up, Daniel. Adding new features is not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes less is more. I am always testing and working on different ideas, but I wouldn’t add them in the program without years of forward testing. I will add the LT wave to the program when time permits, because the wave has done well in tests.

      5. Thank you Danny! I do understand. Hope you keep me 1st on buyers list for LT v.2.0

  2. Please see following image, I would like to know on whether software can generate blue line or not.
    Do you have any suggestions?
    Thank you very much for any suggestions (^v^)

      1. “Just did it?”

        Danny, the scan you are showing as clean is lunatic trader.exe and the scan date is 2 years old.

        The version you are offering to download is lunatictrader1.exe and I just tried it. Yes, it shows 4 viri.

      2. …how did that get cut off…

        But it might be good to try with different scanners. Some have high false positives and others have low finds. If only 1 out of 2 or 3 find the same viri, it is probably a false positive.

        * Kaspersky thinks the file is clean.
        * Microsoft is working on it…

        Or, is there any way you can confirm the SHA on the drop box file is the same as your original? Maybe someone altered the version on the server?

      3. High reputation virus scanners like Kaspersky, Symantec, Defender, AVG,.. all find the file clean. Am I going to bother to correct false positives at services like “Jiangmin”? No.
