The Solunar Model Explained

The Solunar Model charts are seasonal charts. A standard seasonal chart averages the prices action of previous years to show a market's tendancy to rise or fall during certain times of the solar calendar year - that is the "Sol" in Solunar.   The Solunar Model differs, in that the years which are averaged are only those where the lunar phase is close to the current year being forecast. The primary component is the nineteen year Metonic cycle, named after the Greek, Meton, who noticed it.  That nineteen year period subdivides into eight and eleven year components, what the Greeks called the ogdoas and hendekas.   The Solunar Model charts work better in some market than others - and they oscillate between periods of irrelevance and uncanny accuracy. In 2012, the Solunar Model for crude oil has been simply amazing. But of course, past performance is no guarantee of future results.
