The hypothesis to be tested:
Solar Wind effects traders psychology in real time.
Goes X-ray satellite 1minute data plot provided by th SWPC
Forex intraday data (the only financial market that trades really 24H a day)
The Forex chart can be customized: is is advisable to use 5 minutes candlesticks to display a chart with roughly the same amount of data and the same time frame of the X-Ray plot provided by the SWPC
Both Forex data and Satellite data are displayed in Universal Time
In the chart below there is an example of what we are looking for: a pattern, a correlation between traders' behavior and Solar Wind.
This is a new and very complex field of research: a rigorous statistical is advisable. I have been studying this kind of things for years, although I have not reached yet a real conclusive and rigorous model I am more and more convinced that this is a really promising field of study for both academic researchers and traders. My studies have been possible thanks to the NOAA which publish its space weather* data free of charge, without it I could not study these things. For this reason I have decided to share my findings and help people to make additional research (sharing knowledge make us all better): I think that all this should remain, open, interactive and free and help people to improve our knowledge of human behavior. In my Solar Wind Monitor webpage there are some links to scientific literature to start with. From time to time I publish my latest findings and observations on my blog and on this website. Hopefully in this page our readers will find useful tools to start their own research. Any thoughts, finding and ideas could be shared with our community using our Facebook Fan Page.
The real-time refreshable charts:
*The Geostationary Satellite system, operated by the United States National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), supports weather forecasting, severe storm tracking, and meteorology research. Spacecraft and ground-based elements of the system work together to provide a continuous stream of environmental data. The National Weather Service (NWS) uses the GOES system for its United States weather monitoring and forecasting operations, and scientific researchers use the data to better understand land, atmosphere, ocean, and climate interactions.
I thank you the NESDIS (and of course the US tax payers who fund it) for the wealth of data made available to the public: posting for free my charts and update through my blog when I spot some interesting correlation between these data and financial markets data is my way to say thank you. Sharing knowledge make us all better!
