Stock Market Plummets During Moon's Worst Phase

The moon was at its worst phase when the stock market plummeted last Thursday (May 6). Coincidence or something more?

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The stock market’s recent $1 trillion nosedive happened on the worst month, day, hour, and phase of the moon.

According to lunar behavior expert Jeff Warren of moonscope.com, it’s probably no coincidence that the erratic flash crash last Thursday (May 6) went down on the last quarter of the moon, which is “the worst phase of the month.”

Moreover, he says the hour between 1:30 and 2:30 PM – the time of the plummet – was the most tiring hour of the day in terms of lunar phases and definitely NOT prime time for doing business.

Warren says May is the most mellow month for the moon, when work and personal affairs seem to slow down.

Though the lunar shakeout may not have directly caused the major stock market crash, Warren says it’s interesting to note exactly what the moon was doing at the time.

Judging by upcoming phases, he thinks the market should soar again the week of May 21-26.
