Simple Moon Phases Strategy

Simple Moon Phases Strategy

This strategy is very basic and needs some filters to improve results. It was created to test the Moon Phase theory compared to just a buy and hold strategy and it did not beat the buy and hold. However, if you flip the entry and exit signals to the opposite signals it performs a lot worse, so there might be some validity to the Moon Phases having an effect on the markets. I might try to add some filters and increase hold times with trailing stops in a separate version.

WARNING: This strategy uses hard-coded dates from 1/1/2015 until 12/31/2021 only! Any dates outside of that range need to be added manually in the code or it will not work. I may or may not update this so please don't be upset if it stops working after 12/31/2021.

Feel free to use any part of this code and please let me know if you can improve on this strategy.
