Kasture Steve Fellows

Correlations between solar lunar sign combinations and 4% or greater swings in


XLY are presented. The correlations to 3.5% or greater Big Range Days between
solar lunar combinations are also documented. The MMA studies within the Far
for the Galactic Trader software program are the primary tools used to generate
these studies.

SOLAR-LUNAR REVERSALS IN XLY

This study begins with the ETF XLY first trade date December 22, 1998. We will
utilize the 15 years of daily data available for the study utilizing the moons signs to
focus upon short term changes in trend. In The Ultimate Book On Stock Market
Timing Vol. 4 Solar / Lunar Correlations To Short-Term Trading Reversals by
Raymond Merriman the DJIA is analyzed from November 10, 1942 May 13, 2002.
Our work is patterned around similar studies utilizing XLY data from December 22,
1998 through December 31, 2013.
Our goal is to determine the correlations between solar lunar sign combinations and
4% or greater swings in XLY. The correlations to 3.5% or greater Big Range Days
between solar lunar combinations will also be studied. The MMA studies within the
Far for the Galactic Trader software program are to be the primary tools used to
generate these correlations.
XLY is an ETF that is designed to closely match the returns and characteristics of the
S&P Consumer Discretionary Select Sector index (index ticker; IXY). The nature of
XLY, representing a cyclical component of the broader stock market, lends itself as a
leading indicator and, on occasions, a divergent indicator at cycle trend changes.
We continue our research by applying the MMA Solar Lunar studies to the ETF XLY.
RM very good!
In these studies Weighted Value scores above 100 will imply the signature has a
higher than average correlation to a 4% or greater reversal. Anything above 120 is
worth considering, and above 150 is considered critical. Anything above 200 is
considered to be an extreme critical level. One would look for greater price swings
than usual to commence during these periods. Anything below 100 means the
signature has a less than average correlation to a 4 % or greater reversal. Anything
below 83 is worth considering, and below 66.7 is considered critical. Any value
below 50 is considered to be at an extreme critical level of non-volatility. It suggests
the market will mostly trade within a small trading range, or trend without many
significant corrections during the time in which this signature is in effect.
In the study of 4% or greater reversals, the FAR program isolates those that were
crests from those that were troughs. Each of these is then examined to see if certain
solar lunar combinations occurred much more or much less frequently than the
norm. Crest signatures and Trough signatures can be identified.
To be considered specifically a Crest signature, there had to be at least twice as
many instances of crests than troughs, and a weighted value of greater than 150,
preferably, greater than 200.

To be considered specifically a Trough signature, there had to be at least twice as


many instances of troughs than crests, and a weighted value of greater than 150,
preferably, greater than 200.
Each sign will also contain a study of Big Range Days. A breakdown of all the days
in which XLY had a range of at least 3.5% of the value of the low of that day are
examined. Those combinations that result in unusually large scores are noted as
high probability Big Range Days for day trade considerations. RM excellent intro.
XLY Base Line & Big Range Days

XLY Crests & Troughs

The baseline group for XLY shows 3774 trading days in effect between December
22, 1998 through December 31, 2013. Of these , 417 contained a high or low from
which prices reversed at least 4%. The rate of frequency of a 4% or greater reversal
was 11% or approximately once every 9 trading days (approximately once every 2
weeks).
The only sun sign that stands out with a weighted value score of over 120 is
Scorpio. The Sun in Scorpio had a weighted value of (126.00 *). The weighted values
of Sagittarius and Capricorn were (71.27 #) and (77.64 #) respectively, below the
worth noting level of 83 for low volatility.
The highest weighted values for moon signs are Libra and Aries with scores of
(133.85 *) and (121.21 *) respectively. The moon signs least likely to correlate with
4% reversals in XLY would be Leo and Virgo with scores of (76.96 #) and (75.48 #)
respectively.
From the results of Mercury we can see that 4 % or greater reversals have a greater
probability of occurrence when Mercury is in sign of Taurus ( 127.81*), Libra
( 141.58*) or Aquarius ( 141.31*). RM = this is interesting and different than DJIA
study I think. Thats useful!
From the results of Venus we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have a
greater probability of occurrence when Venus is in Aries ( 131.99*).
In the study of crests the following combinations had a weighted value score of over
120: Sun in Scorpio (120.62*), Moon in Aries ( 146.96*) and Libra ( 163.34**),
Mercury in Taurus ( 121.36*), Gemini (133.48*), Libra ( 155.82**) and Aquarius
( 144.69*), Venus in Aries ( 146.44*) and Pisces ( 120.91*).
In the study of troughs the following combinations had a weighted value score of
over 120: Sun in Scorpio ( 131.37*) and Pisces ( 121.57*), Moon in Cancer
( 138.86*) and Sagittarius ( 150.48**), Mercury in Taurus ( 134.26*), Libra ( 127.34*)
and Aquarius ( 137.92*), Venus had no weighted values above 120 for troughs.
The study of volatility known as Big Range Days are days in which the range of
XLY was at least 3.5% of the value of the low of the day. The following combinations
had a weighted value score of over 120: Sun in Libra ( 178.15**), Scorpio ( 124.21*)
and Pisces ( 149.99**), Moon in Capricorn ( 125.40*), Mercury in Libra ( 250.06***)
and Aquarius ( 145.44*), Venus in Aries ( 184.77**), Scorpio ( 127.46*) and
Sagittarius (148.00*). We would like to draw attention, also to Mars as it transits the
consecutive signs of Scorpio (172.15**), Sagittarius ( 133.20*), Capricorn
(172.15**) and Aquarius ( 145.66*) with reference to Big Range Days.

Sun in Aries Base Line & Big Range Days

Sun in Aries Crests & Troughs

SUN IN ARIES

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Aries 315 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Aries have a greater probability of occurrence when
Mercury is in Taurus ( 129.56*).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Aries have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is in Pisces ( 133.02*) and a low probability of occurrence with Venus in
Aquarius (44.82###), Taurus (71.16#) or Gemini (86.90).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Aries have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Aries (182.3 **), and Sagittarius (
164.0 **). Both are fire signs and their weighted value is above the critical 150.0
level. The Moon in Libra (128.47 *), Scorpio (128.47*) and Aquarius (123.11 *) are
worth noting, above 120.0 level.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Aries we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Taurus (35.21###), Virgo ( 41.8 ###), less than 50
- extreme critical importance, Capricorn ( 67.89 ##), and Pisces ( 67.89 ##) both
very close to 67 critical importance.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Scorpio
(3 ), in Aquarius ( 3), in Aries ( 3), and in Libra ( 2 ) contained the most instances
from which 4 % or greater declines commenced. The weighted value of the Moon in
Scorpio (256.7 ***) did not have any trough under that signature, so we can
conclude that the Moon in Scorpio is clearly crest signature. The Moon in Aquarius
weighted value (246.0***) had 3 crests and no troughs whatsoever. Here again we
can conclude that the Moon in Aquarius is also crest signature. The Moon in Aries
has weighted value (218.75 ***) with 3 crests and 2 troughs. The Moon in Aries
cannot be crest signature because it did not contained twice as many crests and
troughs. It is interesting to note that we had no crests in XLY when the Moon was in
Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon in
Sagittarius was present 4 times, and we did not have any crest with the Moon in
Sagittarius. The weighted value of trough with the Sun in Aries and the Moon in
9

Sagittarius is (328.13 ***), more than required 150 level. So it certainly becomes a
trough signature. The Moon in Aries (145.83 *) had 2 troughs and 3 crests. It is
interesting to note that there were no troughs with the Moon in Taurus, in Scorpio,
and Aquarius.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Aries is when the Moon is also in Libra
(256.7 ***) full Moon, Aquarius (164.0 **), and Leo (151.44**). All have weighted
value more than 150. Gemini (135.78 *), and Pisces (135.78 *) are also worth
noting. All air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius ) have weighted values more than
120. Therefore we can conclude that when the Sun is in Aries the probability of a
big range days is greater when the Moon is also in air signs.
The low volatility days are Cancer ( 67.89 #), Capricorn ( 67.89 #), and Aries
(72.92 #). Volatility is low, and weighted value is below required 83.

SUN IN TAURUS

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Taurus 329 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see no significance with 4 % or
greater reversals occurred when the Sun was in Taurus.
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Aries have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is in Pisces ( 241.82 ***) and a low probability of occurrence with Venus in
Capricorn (48.36###).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Taurus have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Libra ( 250.89***), Aries
(200.24***), Taurus (143.30*), and Capricorn (133.42 *). The Moon in Libra and Aries
has a weighted value above the extreme critical 200 level. The Moon in Taurus and
Capricorn are worth noting their weighted value is above the 120 level.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon signs with the Sun in
Aries we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Leo (32.24 ###), Cancer (33.35 ###), Gemini
(40.3 ###), Virgo (71.65 #), and Scorpio ( 77.38 #). Three consecutive signs
Gemini, Cancer, and Leo have weighted value below extreme critical importance
level. We expect no 4 % reversals during that time. Virgo and Scorpio are below 83
level. We expect low volume.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Libra
had 6 crests and had a weighted value (384.81***). Aries had 4 crests with
weighted value (238.81 ***). Both cases contained the most instances from which 4
% or greater declines commenced. The Moon in Libra had 6 crests versus 1 trough.
The Moon in Aries had 4 crests and 2 troughs. Both contained at least twice as
many crests than troughs, their weighted value more than 150. Both are certainly
the crest signatures. It is interesting to note that there were no instances of crests
when the Moon was in Gemini, in Cancer, and in Capricorn while the Sun was in
Taurus. We can assume that XLY does not tend to form a crest from which prices fall
at least 4 % during that time.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon in
Capricorn was present 4 times. Its weighted value is (302.57 ***), much more
required 150 level. We had no crest with the Moon in Capricorn. It fulfills required
14

ratio 2:1, or troughs to crests. The Moon in Capricorn with the Sun in Taurus has a
strong correlation to trough. The Moon in Taurus was present 3 times, whereas it
correlated with the crest only once. Also the weighted value of the Taurus Moon is
(243.70 ***), more that required 150. So the Moon in Taurus with the Sun in Taurus,
or new moon, has a strong correlation to trough. It is interesting to note that we had
no instances of troughs with the Moon in Leo, Virgo, and Sagittarius while the Sun
was in Taurus.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days, when the Sun is in Taurus, is when the Moon is also in
Aquarius with weighted score (320.42 ***), and Pisces with weighted score (427.23
***). Both signs have extremely high weighted score, much more than required 150
level. Therefore we can conclude that when the Sun is in Taurus, the probability of
big range days is greater when the Moon is also in two consecutive signs Aquarius
and Pisces.

SUN IN GEMINI

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Gemini 321 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Gemini have a greater probability of occurrence when
Mercury is in Taurus ( 162.31 **) and a low probability of occurrence with Mercury in
Cancer (63.32##).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Gemini have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is in Aries (146.97 *) and Cancer (128.90*) and a low probability of
occurrence with Venus in Taurus (70.53#) and Leo ( 74.80#).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Gemini have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Libra (219.46 ***). The weighted
value of that solar-lunar combination is much higher than required 150 level. The
Moon in Gemini, the New Moon, had the weighted value 146.97 *, very close to
required level of 150. We can see that air signs have a high correlation to 4 % or
greater reversals.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Gemini we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Scorpio ( 32.87 ### ). The weighted value of that
solar-lunar combination is below the very critical 50 level. The Moon in Taurus
( 60.99 ##), the Moon in Pisces ( 63.34 ## ), and the Moon in Sagittarius ( 65.87
##) had a weighted value below the critical 67 level. All these signs had a lower
than expected correlation to 4 % or greater reversals while the Sun was in Gemini.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Libra
was present 6 times, in Aquarius 3 times, and in Gemini 3 times as well, in most
instances from which 4 % or greater decline commenced. In the case of Libra the
weighted value of the crest was extremely high 305.70 *** and we had 2 troughs
versus 6 crests. Therefore the Moon in Libra with the Sun in Gemini is clearly a crest
combination. Weighted value of the Moon in Aquarius is 176.4 **. We had 3 crests
and no troughs whatsoever. That solar-lunar combination also becomes a crest
signature. Weighted value of the Moon in Gemini is 163.82 **. It had 3 crests and 2
troughs, so the ratio of crests versus troughs was not quite 2:1 as required. We can
add that all abovementioned solar-lunar combinations belong to air trinity which is

19

quite remarkable. Also there were no crests with the Moon in Aries, Scorpio, and
Sagittarius with the Sun in Gemini.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Aries 3 times, and in Sagittarius 2 times. The Moon in both cases was in a fire signs.
The weighted value of the Moon in Aries is 191.11 **, and the weighted value of the
Moon in Sagittarius is 142.65 **. Both solar-lunar combinations had no crests.
Therefore we can conclude that both solar-lunar combinations have a trough
correlation.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days, when the Sun is in Gemini, is when the Moon is also in Virgo
( 316.24***), Cancer ( 176.43 **), Pisces (176.43 **), Capricorn ( 169.89 **), Gemini
(163.82 **) and Libra (152.90**). Three of these signs are mutable, the same as the
Sun sign. The other two are cardinal. It is interesting to note that the other 6 Moon
signs had no historical instances of reversal. Therefore we can conclude that Big
Range Days are more probable when the Sun is in Gemini and the Moon is in
mutable signs except Sagittarius. Also when the Moon transits through cardinal
signs Cancer and Capricorn it can be a very reliable reversal.

SUN IN CANCER

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Cancer 322 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Cancer have a greater probability of occurrence when
Mercury also is in Gemini ( 191.38**) and a low probability of occurrence with
Mercury in Cancer (82.62#) and Leo (79.13#).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Cancer have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus also is in Cancer ( 126.14 *), and in Leo ( 120.64 *) and a low probability of
occurrence with Venus in Gemini ( 77.54#) and Virgo ( 56.19#).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Cancer have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Cancer ( 180.10 **), Capricorn
( 186.53 **), and Pisces ( 124.32*). The Moon in Cancer and Capricorn is above the
critical 150 level in each case. The Moon in Pisces is above worth noting 120 level.
The Moon in Cancer, or New Moon, and the Moon in Capricorn, or Full Moon, is both
cardinal signs.
Low Probability Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Gemini we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Leo (34.78 ###), Taurus (56.19 ##), Virgo (64.52
##), and Sagittarius (69.68 #). The weighted value of the Moon in Leo is below 50 extreme critical importance level. The weighted value of the Moon in Taurus and the
Moon in Virgo are below 67 critical importance level. The weighted value of the
Moon in Sagittarius is below worth considering 83 level. Here we have interesting
positions of the Moon contributing to low probability reversals 2 fixed signs
(Taurus and Leo) and 2 mutable signs (Virgo and Sagittarius), and another position
of the Moon 2 fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius), and 2 earth signs (Taurus and Virgo).
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Cancer
was present 3 times, in Capricorn 3 times, in Aquarius 2 times, and in Pisces also 2
times (135.24 *). The Moon in Cancer, the New Moon has a weighted value (195.98
**). The Moon in Capricorn, the Full Moon, has a weighted value (202.98 ***). Both
have a weighted value around extreme critical 200 level. At the same time both
solar-lunar combinations have equal amount of troughs and crests and because of
that they did not fulfill our 2:1 criterion. The weighted value of the Moon in Aquarius
is (140.25 *), and we had 2 crests versus 1 trough but it was slightly below our
24

required 150 level. The Moon in Pisces has a weighted value (135.24 *), also slightly
below 150 level. We can conclude the Sun in Cancer while the Moon is in Aquarius
has a potential correlation of a crest signature.
Trough Correlations: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Cancer 3 times, in Capricorn 3 times, in Sagittarius 2 times, and in Aries 2 times.
The weighted value of the Moon in Cancer is (166.55 **). The weighted value of the
Moon in Capricorn is (172.50 **). We already discussed these solar-lunar
combinations and came to conclusion that there is no strong correlation to crests or
to troughs. The weighted value of the Moon in Sagittarius and the Moon in Pisces is
(128.80 *), less than required 150 level. The Moon in Sagittarius had 2 troughs and
no crests.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Cancer, is when the Moon is also in
Capricorn (143.75**), Virgo (149.07**), and Pisces ( 143.75**). All signs have
weighted value around 150 level. The Moon in Scorpio had a weighted value
(125.78*), and the Moon in Gemini had a weighted value (121.92*) both above the
worth noting level.

SUN IN LEO

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Leo 335 trading days during
the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that there is no significance
to 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Leo when Mercury also is in Cancer,
Leo or Virgo.
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Leo have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is an evening star in Libra (120.71*), and in Virgo (119.17*). With the Sun in
Leo, Venus as a morning star, would have low probabilities of 4% or greater
reversals with Venus in Gemini (71.5 #) and Venus in Cancer (62.0 ##).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Leo have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Sagittarius (150.86 **), Aries (124.87
*), Leo ( 124.87 *), and Gemini ( 120.71 *).The weighted value of the Moon in
Sagittarius is above the critical level of 150. The weighted value of the Moon in
Aries, Leo, and Gemini is above worth noting 120 level. Considering that the Sun
is in fire sign of Leo we can conclude that the Moon in all fire signs plays important
role in reversals.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Leo we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. There were no
reversals when the Sun was in Leo, and the Moon was in Virgo. Weighted value of
the Moon in Taurus was (64.73 ##), below critical importance 67 level. Weighted
value of the Moon in Capricorn is (72.49 #), below worth considering 83 level. We
can conclude that the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Earth signs have lower than
usual probability of reversals.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Aries
was 2 times, in Gemini 2 times, in Sagittarius 4 times, in Aquarius 3 times, and in
Pisces 2 times. The weighted value of the Moon in Sagittarius is (262.75 ***) above
200 extreme critical importance. Considering that it was 4 crests and one trough
that solar-lunar combination becomes most reliable crest correlation. The weighted
value of the Moon in Aquarius is (184.77 **). That solar-lunar combination has 3
crests versus 1 trough. We can conclude that the Sun in Leo while the Moon is in
Aquarius is very reliable crest correlation. The weighted value of the Moon in Pisces
is (145.91 **). It is very close to required 150 level. That solar-lunar combination has
29

2 crests versus 1 trough, so most likely it can be reliable crest correlation. The
weighted value of the Moon in Aries is (135.85 *). It is above worth considering
120 level but we had 2 crests versus 2 troughs. The Moon in Gemini has the
weighted value (131.32 *), it is above the worth noting level of 120 but that solarlunar combination also does not have required ratio of crests and troughs. It has 2
crests versus 2 troughs.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Cancer 2 times, in Leo 3 times, in Libra 3 times, and in Capricorn 2 times. The
weighted value of the Moon in Leo, the New Moon, is (173.28 **). It has 3 troughs
versus 1 crest. The Moon in Libra also had a high weighted value (157.03 **). It has
3 troughs and no crests, thereby it fulfills 1:2 ratio. Therefore we can conclude that
the Moon in Leo and the Moon in Libra are trough correlations. The Moon in Cancer
with the weighted value (145.65 *), and the Moon in Capricorn with the weighted
value (134.00 *) both are below the required 150 level. The Moon in Cancer has 2
troughs versus 1 crest, and the Moon in Capricorn had 2 troughs as well and no
crests. Probably in time Leo-Cancer and Leo-Capricorn solar-lunar combinations will
be upgraded to reliable trough correlations.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days, when the Sun is in Leo, is when the Moon is also in Sagittarius
(152.31 **), and Capricorn (304.58 ***). The weighted value score of the Moon in
Sagittarius is above the critical 150 level. The Moon Capricorn is above 200
extreme critical importance. The Moon in Libra has the weighted value
(142.79
*), and the Moon in Scorpio (121.81*) which is above worth noting 120 level. It is
Interesting to note that all volatile days are in consecutive order from Libra to
Capricorn.

SUN IN VIRGO

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Virgo 312 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Virgo have a greater probability of occurrence when
Mercury is in Libra (139.29 *) and a low probability of occurrence with Mercury in
Virgo (68.41#).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Virgo have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is also in Virgo (123.80 *).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Virgo have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces. The
Moon in Pisces has the weighted value (154.77**), above 150 critical importance
level, thus we can conclude that it is a very reliable reversal. The weighted value of
the Moon in Sagittarius is (138.65 *), and the Moon in Capricorn is (123.80 *). Both
solar-lunar combinations have better than average probability of coinciding with a
reversal.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Gemini we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Aries, Taurus, and Leo. The weighted value of the
Moon in Aries is (39.43###), which is below extreme critical importance. The
weighted value of the Moon in Taurus is (61.95 ##), which is below our critical
importance, and the weighted value of the Moon in Leo is (69.39 #) below of worth
considering level.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in
Sagittarius and the Moon in Pisces was 3 times in each sign, the Moon in Virgo and
the Moon in Libra was 2 times in each sign. The weighted value of the Moon in
Sagittarius is (187.20 **). It has 3 instances of crests versus 1 trough; it is a very
reliable reversal. The weighted value of the Moon in Pisces is (167.14 **). In that
case there were 3 crests and 2 troughs, so it did not quite fulfill the 2:1 ratio
requirement. The weighted value of the Moon in Virgo was (120.00 *), and the
weighted value of the Moon in Libra is (135.65*). In both instances there were 2
crests and 1 trough; both they have better than average probability of coinciding
with reversal.

34

Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Gemini 2 times, in Cancer 2 times, in Capricorn 2 times, and in Pisces 2 times as
well. The weighted value of the Moon in Gemini is (150.00 **), the weighted value of
the Moon in Cancer is (162.50 **). In both instances there were 2 troughs versus 1
crest; thus both solar-lunar combinations become very reliable reversals. The
weighted value of the Moon in Capricorn is (139.29 *) which is above worth
considering level but there were 2 troughs versus 2 crests. The weighted value of
the Moon in Pisces is (139.29 *). In that instance there were 2 troughs versus 3
crests. Therefore we can conclude that the Moon in Capricorn and the Moon in
Pisces have a better than average probability of reversal but not necessarily with a
trough or crest. It is interesting to note that during 15 years of study there were no
instances of a trough when the Sun was in Virgo and the Moon was in Aries.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Virgo is when the Moon is also in Aries
(223.91 ***), in Taurus (175.95 **), in Cancer (273.65 ***), in Libra (142.84 *), and in
Aquarius (121.68 *). The weighted value of the Moon in Cancer and the Moon in
Aries is above extreme critical importance. The weighted value of the Moon in
Taurus and the Moon in Libra is above the worth considering level. Note: 3 cardinal
signs are more active and volatile.

SUN IN LIBRA

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Libra 322 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Virgo have a greater probability of occurrence when
Mercury also is in Libra (126.28 *) and a low probability of occurrence with Mercury
in Virgo (63.49##) and Scorpio (73.06#).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that it is no 4 % or
greater reversals when the Sun is in Libra while the Venus is in Leo (45.89 ###), in
Virgo (111.15), in Scorpio (107.41), and in Sagittarius (68.83 #).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Libra have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Libra (137.66 *), and in Scorpio
(152.89 **). The weighted value of the Moon in Scorpio is above critical importance,
therefore the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Scorpio is very reliable solar-lunar
reversal combination. The Moon in Libra has weighted value above worth
considering level, thus it has better than average probability to coincide with
reversal.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Libra we can conclude there is one particular Moon sign corresponding to low
probability of 4 % or greater reversals. Moon in Virgo (34.35###).
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Aries
was 2 times, the Moon in Gemini 2 times, the Moon in Libra 3 times, the Moon in
Scorpio 3 times, and the Moon in Capricorn 2 times. The Moon in Libra, the New
Moon has a weighted value (223.66 ***). There are 3 crests versus 1 trough. We can
conclude that the Moon in Libra is the most reliable solar-lunar correlation. The
weighted value of the Moon in Scorpio is (198.81**). There are 3 crests versus 2
troughs. The weighted value of the Moon in Capricorn is (137.59 *), the weighted
value of the Moon in Aries is (132.50 *), and the Moon in Gemini is (127.77 *). In all
three instances there are 2 crests versus 1 trough. Therefore we can conclude that
all three abovementioned solar-lunar combinations have better than average
probability of coinciding with reversals. It is interesting to note that the Sun is in
cardinal sign of Libra, and three cardinal played important role in reversals.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Taurus 3 times, in Aquarius 3 times, and in Pisces 3 times as well. The weighted
39

value of the Moon in Taurus is (158.67 **), the weighted value of the Moon in
Aquarius is (164.34 **), and the weighted value of the Moon in Pisces is (158.67 **).
Since all three Moon positions are above critical importance level and all have a
ratio of at least 2:1 troughs versus crests we can conclude that these solar-lunar
combinations are very reliable reversals.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is Libra, is when the Moon is also in Aries
(125.58 *), in Cancer (237.25 ***), in Libra (141.28 *), in Scorpio (188.31 **), and in
Capricorn (130.41 *). The weighted value of the Moon in Cancer is above extreme
critical importance level. The weighted value of the Moon in Scorpio is above critical
importance level. It is interesting to note that both Moon positions are in water
signs. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries, in Libra, and in Capricorn is above
worth considering level. It is necessary to note that among all Moon positions
cardinal signs are playing important role.

SUN IN SCORPIO

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Scorpio 316 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that there is no significant 4
% or greater reversals when the Sun is in Scorpio and Mercury is also in Libra
(114.26), in Scorpio (103.14), and in Sagittarius (85.51).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Scorpio and Venus is in Capricorn (139.65 *). Venus in
Virgo (115.8), Libra (67.59 #) Scorpio (112.5), and Sagittarius (97.53) had a low
probability of occurrence of reversal.
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Scorpio have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Aries (128.21 *), in Taurus (163.17 **),
in Cancer (138.07 *), and in Virgo (153.94 **). The weighted value of the Moon in
Taurus, the Full Moon, is above the critical level of 150. The weighted value of the
Moon in Virgo, also earth sign, is also above critical importance. The weighted value
of the Moon in Aries, and the Moon in Cancer, both cardinal signs, is above the
worth noting level of 120. All the earth signs have a higher than expected
correlation to 4% or greater reversals when the Sun is in Scorpio. Cardinal signs of
the Moon have better than average probability of coinciding with reversals.

45

Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Scorpio we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Leo (57.51 ##), in Aquarius (49.58 ###), and in
Pisces (28.59 ###). The weighted value of the Moon in Pisces and the weighted
value of the Moon in Aquarius is below the extreme critical importance level of 50.
The weighted value of the Moon in Leo is below critical importance level of 67. Thus
we can conclude that the time when the Moon transits trough consecutive signs of
Aquarius and Pisces 4% reversals are less likely. The same is true when the Moon is
in Leo while the Sun is in Scorpio.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Aries
was 4 times, in Gemini 3 times, in Cancer 4 times, in Scorpio 2 times, and in
Capricorn 2 times. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries was (214.99 ***), it had
4 crests versus 1 trough. The weighted value of the Moon in Cancer was (231.53
***), it had 4 crests versus 1 trough. Both Moon positions in cardinal signs fit both
our criteria of special solar-lunar situation. Therefore we can conclude that the Sun
in Scorpio while the Moon is in Aries and the Moon is in Cancer are the most reliable
crest correlations. The weighted value of the Moon in Gemini was (150.52**) but it
had 3 crests versus 2 troughs. Probably in time that solar-lunar combination will
become a crest correlation. The weighted value of the Moon in Capricorn was
(130.80*). That solar-lunar combination has 2 crests versus 1 trough. The weighted
value of the Moon in Scorpio is (130.80*) which is slightly above our required worth
noting level. The ratio of that solar-lunar combination is 2:1.Therefore we can
conclude that the Moon in Scorpio while the Sun is also in Scorpio, or the New Moon,
has better that average probability of coinciding with a reversal. It is interesting to
note that there was no crest with the Moon in Pisces while the Sun was in Scorpio.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Taurus 4 times, in Virgo 4 times, and in Libra 4 times as well. The weighted value of
the Moon in Taurus is (249.78***), it has 4 troughs versus 1 crest. We can conclude
that the Moon in Taurus, the Full Moon, is the most reliable trough correlation. The
Moon in Virgo has the weighted value (196.25**). The ratio of that solar-lunar
correlation is 4:2. The weighted value of the Moon in Libra is (183.17**). That solarlunar combination also has 4 troughs and no crests. We can conclude that the Moon
in Virgo and the Moon in Libra, two consecutive signs, are trough correlations.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Scorpio, occurred when the Moon was also
in Aries (130.24*), in Taurus (165.76**), in Leo (145.87*), in Virgo (130.24*), and in
Aquarius (125.75*). The weighted value of the Moon in Taurus is above the critical
importance level. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries, in Leo, in Virgo, and in
Aquarius is worth considering. It is interesting to note that all fixed signs including
the Sun in Scorpio played important role in Big Range Days.

SUN IN SAGITTARIUS

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Sagittarius 305 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Sagittarius have a greater probability of occurrence
when Mercury also is in Sagittarius (129.24*). Mercury in Scorpio (92.07) and
Mercury in Capricorn (21.56###) did not produce a reversal.
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Sagittarius have a greater probability of occurrence
when Venus is also in Libra (173.30**) and in Aquarius (305.00***). Venus in Scorpio
(48.42###) and Venus in Capricorn (88.97) did not have an influence on reversals.
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the highest probability of occurrence
when the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon also is in Aries (293.27***), in Taurus
(146.63*), Leo (152.50**), Libra (211.85***), and Sagittarius (158.85**). The Moon
in Aries and in Libra, both Cardinal signs, have the weighted value score above
extreme critical importance. They are instances of the most reliable reversal. The
Moon in Leo and the Moon in Sagittarius, the New Moon, have weighted value above
critical importance. Leo and Sagittarius are both fire signs.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Sagittarius we can conclude that 4% or greater reversals have the lowest probability
of occurrence when the Moon is also in Gemini (47.11###), Cancer (47.11###),
Capricorn (48.92###), and Pisces (43.86###). All solar-lunar combinations have
the weighted value below extreme critical importance level, thus confirming that
above-mentioned solar-lunar combinations are less likely to produce a trading
reversal.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests with the Sun in Sagittarius, we can
see that the Moon is in Aries 4 times, and in Leo 3 times. Leo and Aries are fire
signs. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries is (390.99***). There are 4 crests
versus 2 troughs. The weighted value of the Moon in Leo is (305.00***).
It has 3 crests and no troughs. Both solar-lunar combinations fulfill both
requirements. Therefore we can conclude that the Sun in Sagittarius with the Moon
in fire signs of Aries and Leo is crest correlation.

50

Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs with the Sun in Sagittarius, we can
see that the Moon was in Aries 2 times, Taurus 2 times, Libra 3 times, and in
Sagittarius 2 times. The weighted value of the Moon in Libra is (317.71***). It has 3
troughs versus 1 crest. The weighted value of the Moon in Sagittarius, the New
Moon, is (211.85***). Ratio of troughs to crests is 2:1. Therefore we can conclude
that when the Sun is in Sagittarius while the Moon is in Libra or in Sagittarius there
are the most reliable troughs occurring. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries is
(195.55**). There are 2 troughs versus 4 crests. We already mentioned that Sun in
Sagittarius and the Moon in Aries is in fact a crest signature. The weighted value of
the Moon in Taurus is (195.55**). There are 2 troughs versus 1 crest. That solarlunar combination fulfills our requirement; it is a trough correlation. It is interesting
to note that there were no troughs when the Moon was in Leo, Virgo, Aquarius, and
Pisces.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Sagittarius, is when the Moon is also in Leo
(152.50**), Scorpio (221.06***), and Capricorn (244.35***). It appears that the Sun
in Sagittarius and the Moon in Leo, both fire signs; the Sun in Sagittarius and the
Moon in Scorpio, fire and water signs, the market is more unstable than usual.

SUN IN CAPRICORN

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Capricorn 280 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Capricorn have a greater probability of occurrence
when Mercury also is in Aquarius (244.19***). When Mercury was in Sagittarius
(70.77#), and in Capricorn (75.76#) there was no reversal.
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4 % or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Capricorn have a greater probability of occurrence
when Venus is also in Sagittarius (131.44*), and Pisces (291.70***). There was low
probability of reversal when Venus was in Scorpio (36.49###), Capricorn (77.77#),
and Aquarius (47.30###).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4 % or greater reversals when the Sun is in Capricorn have a greater
probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The
weighted value of the Moon in Libra is (253.58***). That is above extreme critical
importance 200 level. Therefore that solar-lunar combination is the most reliable
reversal. The weighted value of the Moon in Sagittarius is (194.48**), and the
weighted value of the Moon in Aquarius is (152.17**). Both solar-lunar combinations
have weighted value above critical importance level. Therefore we can conclude
that they are very reliable reversals. It is interesting to note that Libra and Aquarius
are both air signs.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Capricorn we can conclude that 4 % or greater reversals have the least probability
of occurrence when the Moon is in Aries, Gemini, Cancer, and Virgo. The weighted
value of the Moon in Virgo is (43.24###), below critical importance. Therefore we
can conclude that the Sun in Capricorn while the Moon is in Virgo has extremely low
volatility. The weighted value of the Moon in Aries is (53.07##), in Gemini is
(61.45##), and in Cancer is (53.07##), below critical importance 67 level.
Therefore we can consider all the above-mentioned Moon positions as a time band
when 4% reversals are less likely than normal.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Taurus is
2 times, and the Moon in Libra is 5 times. The weighted value of the Moon in Taurus
is (194.48**), which is very close to extreme critical importance. The weighted value
of the Moon in Libra is (507.29***). Both solar-lunar correlations have crests only
and no troughs, thus fulfilling both our requirements. Therefore we can conclude
55

that the Moon in Taurus and the Moon in Libra while the Sun is in Capricorn are crest
correlations. Interesting to note that there was no crests when the Moon was in
Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Gemini once, in Sagittarius 3 times, in Capricorn 2 times, and in Aquarius 2 times.
The weighted value of the Moon in Sagittarius is (291.67***), in Capricorn, the New
Moon, is (202.94***), and in Aquarius is also (202.94***). All three solar-lunar
combinations are above extreme critical importance. The Moon in Sagittarius had 3
troughs versus 1 crest. The Moon in Capricorn had 2 troughs and no crests, and the
Moon in Aquarius had 2 troughs versus 1 crest. We can conclude that the Moon in
consecutive signs Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius, while the Sun is in Capricorn
are trough correlations. The Moon in Gemini had a weighted value (122.76*), which
is considered worth noting but in that instance we had only 1 trough and no
crests. May be in time it will become trough correlation.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Capricorn occurred when the Moon was
also in Gemini, Virgo and Capricorn. The weighted value score of these solar-lunar
combinations was (122.76*), (172.87**), and (202.94***) respectively. Virgo and
Capricorn are both Earth signs, and Capricorn Moon is a New Moon.

SUN IN AQUARIUS

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Aquarius 305 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4% or greater reversals
when the Sun is in Aquarius have a greater probability of occurrence when Mercury
is in Capricorn (139.13*).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4% or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Aquarius have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus also is in Aries (196.77**) and a low probability of occurrence with Venus in
Sagittarius (37.89###), Capricorn (104.67), Aquarius (44.07###), and Pisces
(118.55).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4% or greater reversals when the Sun is in Aquarius have the highest
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Taurus (134.20*), Cancer
(157.38**), Virgo (218.58***), Sagittarius (255.07***), and Aquarius (145.72*). The
weighted value of the Moon in Virgo and the Moon in Sagittarius is above our 200
extreme critical importance level. Virgo and Sagittarius are mutable signs. Therefore
we can conclude that when the Moon is in mutable signs of Virgo and Sagittarius
while the Sun is in Aquarius there is a possibility of the most reliable reversal. The
weighted value of the Moon in Cancer is above the critical importance level; thus
very reliable reversals are likely to occur. The Moon in Taurus and the Moon in
Aquarius, both fixed signs, has the weighted value above our worth considering
level with better than average probability of coinciding with reversal. It is necessary
to note that the Moon in Aquarius is a New Moon.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Aquarius have the lowest probability of occurrence when the Moon is in Aries
(33.97###), and Gemini (37.89###). The weighted value of the Moon in Aries and
Gemini is below our extreme critical importance level. Therefore we can conclude
that when the Moon is Aries or Gemini while the Sun is also in Aquarius the
probability of a 4% reversal is less likely to occur.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon is in Taurus
2 times, in Virgo 4 times, in Sagittarius 2 times, and in Aquarius 3 times. The Moon
in Sagittarius did not have required 150 weighted value level, just 141.20*. Also
there were not right crests and troughs ratio. The weighted value of the Moon in
60

Virgo is (282.41***) which is above extreme critical importance .There are 4


instances of crests and 2 instances of troughs, so it fulfills the required ratio 2:1.
The weighted value of the Moon in Aquarius, the New Moon, is (211.81***). There
are 3 instances of crest and 1 trough. Thus again both our requirements are fulfilled.
The Moon in Taurus has the weighted value (173.30**). There are 2 crests versus 1
trough. Once again both our requirements are fulfilled. Therefore we can conclude
that the most reliable crest correlations correspond to the Moon in Virgo while the
Sun is in Aquarius, and to the New Moon, or when both Sun and Moon are in
Aquarius. First Quarter Moon or the Moon in Taurus with Aquarius Sun can be a crest
correlation.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon is in
Cancer 3 times, in Virgo 2 times, and in Sagittarius 5 times. The weighted value of
the Moon in Sagittarius is (376.51***). That combination has required amount
troughs versus crests 5:2, and its weighted value is extremely high, therefore we
can conclude that the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Sagittarius are correlated to
troughs. The weighted value of the Moon in Cancer is (244.00***), and it has 3
troughs versus 1 crest; therefore it also qualifies to be a troughs correlation. The
Moon in Virgo has a weighted value 150.48. It has 2 troughs versus 4 crests. That
solar-lunar combination has a very high weighted value, especially for crests.
Therefore most likely the Moon in Virgo while the Sun is in Aquarius is rather
reversal signature than specifically trough or crest correlation.
High Probability Big Range Days for Day Trading: The most consistent big
range volatility days when the Sun is in Aquarius, is when the Moon is in Cancer
(183.00**), Virgo (282.41***), Scorpio (127.08*), and Sagittarius (169.44**).

SUN IN PISCES

The baseline of our study shows that Sun was in Pisces 312 trading days
during the study.
From the results of the Mercury signs we can see that 4% or greater reversals
when the Sun is in Pisces have a greater probability of occurrence when Mercury
also is in Aquarius 165.44** and a low probability of occurrence with Mercury in
Pisces (79.88#) and Mercury in Aries (33.19###).
From the results of the Venus signs we can conclude that 4% or greater
reversals when the Sun is in Pisces have a greater probability of occurrence when
Venus is also in Aquarius (120.00*) and in Aries (150.76**) and a low probability of
occurrence with Venus in Capricorn (33.91###) and Pisces (45.22###).
High Probability Reversals: From the results of the Moon signs we can
conclude that 4% or greater reversals when the Sun is in Pisces have the higher
probability of occurrence when the Moon is also in Aries (134.48*), in Gemini
(173.33**), in Cancer (144.44*), and in Leo (130.00*). The weighted value of the
Moon in Gemini, or First Quarter, is above the required 150 level. The Moon in Aries,
in Cancer, and in Leo is above our worth noting 120 level. Therefore we can
conclude that the Moon in Gemini is very reliable reversal.
Low Probabilities Reversals: from the results of the Moon sign with the Sun in
Pisces we can conclude that 4% or greater reversals have the lowest probability of
occurrence when the Moon is in Virgo (33.91###) and in Libra (27.86###). The
weighted value of the Moon in two consecutive signs of Virgo, Full Moon, and Libra
are below extreme critical importance level of 50. Therefore we can conclude that
the Moon in Virgo and the Moon in Libra, when the Sun is in Pisces, probability of a
4% reversal is less likely to occur.
Crest Correlations: In the table of crests we can see that the Moon in Aries
was 3 times, in Taurus 2 times, in Gemini 3 times, in Leo 2 times, and in Pisces 2
times. The weighted value of the Moon in Gemini is (182.46**), above critical
importance 150 level. There were 3 crests versus 3 troughs, so that requirement
was not fulfilled. The Moon in Aries has the weighted value (169.88**) but amount
of crests and troughs is 3:2. The weighted value of the Moon in Leo is (136.89*). In
that instance there were 2 troughs and 2 troughs. The weighted value of the Moon
in Taurus is (126.36*), above of our worth noting level, also there is 2 crests
versus 1 trough. The Moon in Pisces has the weighted value (131.41*), above worth
noting level. There are also 2 crests versus 1 trough. We can conclude that there is
no strong correlation to crest among all solar-lunar combinations. The Moon in
65

Gemini, the Moon in Aries, and the Moon in Leo while the Sun is in Pisces are rather
reversal correlations. The Moon in Taurus and the Moon in Pisces, the New Moon, are
worth noting.
Trough Correlation: In the table of troughs we can see that the Moon was in
Gemini 3 times, in Cancer 4 times, in Leo 2 times, and in Scorpio 2 times. The
weighted value of the Moon in Cancer is (220.13***). There were 4 troughs versus 1
crest, so it qualifies both requirements for trough correlation. The weighted value of
the Moon in Scorpio is (129.14*) which is slightly higher than worth noting level.
There were 2 troughs and 1 crest. Therefore the Moon in Scorpio while the Sun is in
Pisces has better than average probability of coinciding with reversals. The
weighted value of the Moon in Gemini (First Quarter) is (169.88**), which fits one of
our requirements for reversal but the amount of troughs and crests was equal 3
troughs versus 3 crests. Therefore the Moon in Gemini while the Sun is Pisces is a
very strong reversal correlation. The Moon in Leo also should be considered as
reversal correlation; its weighted value is (123.76*), and there were 2 troughs
versus 2 crests. After consideration of various solar-lunar correlations we can
conclude that the Moon in Cancer while the Sun is in Pisces is the most reliable
trough correlation.
We view this work as an extension to the original study outlined in the book
previously mentioned, The Ultimate Book On Stock Market Timing Vol. 4 Solar /
Lunar Correlations To Short-Term Trading Reversals by Raymond Merriman. The
original work covered the DJIA, NASDAQ and Nikkei over a 60 year period.
This study would add 11 additional years, with data from December 22, 1998
- December 31, 2013 as the ETF XLY closely approximates the broader US stock
markets.
It is our intent to analyze this current study in tandem with Rays original
work. It will be interesting to note the similarities evident within the current market
environment.
