Trading moon phases has become quite popular among traders, believing that there exists a relationship between moon phases and market movements. This strategy is based on an estimate of moon phases with the possibility to use different methods to determine long/short positions based on moon phases .

Note that we assume moon phases are perfectly periodic with a cycle of 29.530588853 days (which is not realistically the case), as such there exists a difference between the detected moon phases by the strategy and the ones you would see. This difference becomes less important when using higher timeframes.

Settings

- New Moon Reference Date: Date of a new moon to be used as starting point for the cycle calculation.
- Buy: Determine the condition to be used to open a long position
- Sell: Determine the condition to be used to open a short position

Description

The strategy can use different buy/sell conditions, these are determined in the Buy/Sell settings drop-down menu.

By default, the strategy goes long on a new moon and short on a full moon . This setup is common since full moons are said to be related to depressed mood. However, it is possible to use inverse conditions.

Users can also go long on higher moons (new moons or full moons occurring at a price that is higher than the previous one when a new/ full moon occurred) and short on lower moons, this would return a trend following strategy, using the inverse conditions (buy lower moons/sell higher moons) would return a contrarian strategy.

The above chart displays the strategy using default conditions.

The above chart displays the strategy of going long on a higher moon and selling on a lower moon.
