Sunspots

The long term performance of equities and commodities both correlate with solar sunspot cycles, with secular bull markets typically ending around solar cycle peaks. The period from solar minimum to solar maximum is historically one of positive returns. Solar minima are associated with panics, crashes or bottoms.

    Very interesting discussion on possible causes of the solar cycle. The links to papers in the comments are also good.

      Thanks Kerry. Norwegian Jan reckons there are 3 main cycles that regulate the sunspot-cycle and that a fourier spectrum reveals them: the ~10 year (half) synodic Jupiter-Saturn cycle, the ~11 year Venus-Earth-Jupiter, and the ~12 year Jupiter cycle.
