Sheer Lunacy staring at the Heavens
The proposed trading strategy can be summarized as follows: buy an index on
the new moon (if this is a non-trading day, buy on the next trading day), hold till
the full moon (usually 14-15 days), sell the index on the full moon (similarly, if
non-trading day, sell on the next trading day), repeat the investment of the
overall amount on the next moon cycle (usually in 14-16 days), enjoy your profits!
S&P500 Data since 1928. £1,000 invested in 1928 would be £63,894 today but by buying on the New Moon and selling on the Full Moon it would return £1,502,689
