Researchers link solar storms to market lows

Numerous studies have shown that solar storms affect our mood, which can in turn affect our behavior. One 1994 report in the British Journal of Psychiatry cited by Krivelyova and Robotti shows a 36.2 percent increase in hospital admissions for depression during the storms. A 1992 paper published in the RussianAviakosm Ekolog Med shows that during solar storms, pilots experience increased stress and a sharp decline in flying skills. A Russian study from 1998, based on data from Moscow’s ambulance corps, found that suicides and mental disorders, along with cardiovascular incidents—which are often stress related—spike during periods of increased geomagnetic activity.
