I totally agree that correlation is not causation. Even so, I found this interesting:
The Dow Jones Chart with the middle of a five day period at the start of the eclipse over the United States does correlate with the expected fall then rise of the index due to a suspected ‘eclipse effect’; (Aug 17 1030EDT (just before effect start) = 21,905, Aug 18 1000EDT = 21,675, (weekend period 19-20), Aug21 1030EDT (effect at max, almost at the eclipse start) = 21,617, Aug22 1000EDT (effect over) = 21,812, Aug23 1030EDT = 21843.
This is absurd.
Do you not realise what else has been going on? Trump's prevarications over Charlottesville, the resignation/dismissal of his business councils, his comments about closing down government if necessary to build his ridiculous wall, and so forth?
