A group of leading economists has claimed to have found a correlation between solar flares and the fluctuations of the global stock market. According to their research, the intense bursts of radiation from the sun can affect the mood and behavior of investors, causing them to make irrational decisions and panic sell or buy.
The economists have suggested that traders should monitor the solar activity and adjust their strategies accordingly. They also warned that a major solar storm could trigger a global financial crisis, unless adequate measures are taken to protect the communication and power systems.
The findings have been met with skepticism and ridicule by some experts, who dismissed them as pseudoscience and coincidence. They argued that there are many other factors that influence the stock market, such as politics, news, and human psychology.
