Moon cycles? Can they affect financial markets? Full moons are an often cited time for rallies in the metals markets. Below are some times of day that may have some effect on the metals or equity indexes. It's a new indicator and still experimental but if any one would like to join the fun and help me look for correlations please join in. They may be especially useful to futures or day traders as possible times for intra-day or pre-market ramps and selloffs. I can't reveal at this time how they are calculated. I will be updating them monthly.

New format:
It may be best to begin looking for the turns 1.25 hours before the time listed for major turns and .5 hours in advance of the minor. The actual times listed are also important and it may be shown over time that the window can be narrowed. Though they often mark intra-day reversals they may only be corrections or even accelaration in the trend.

Add one hour to the minor times for this month.
The major turns are correct.
