Investing with the Moon


Since 1950, investing in S&P 500 stocks during “lunar green periods” has consistently outperformed the “lunar red periods” (note: the Green Periods start about 3 days after Full Moon):

long term

Below we track the performance of these lunar red and green periods since the start of this blog.
We base it on the most basic strategy: buying stocks at the end of red period and selling them at the end of green period. Daily Nasdaq closing prices are used.
Over the last seven years (summer 2009 – winter 2016) the Nasdaq has gained a total of 2679 points in our lunar green periods, versus a gain of 895 points in the lunar red periods (when more weakness is expected). So, it continues to work well.
