For those already skeptical of Wall Street trading practices, this news will bring little solace -- unless you're into astrology, that is.

According to MarketPlace, reports Wall Street & Technology, "at least 300 traders are currently paying $237 each year to subscribe to financial astrologer Karen Starich’s newsletter, while a couple thousand more subscribe to Arch Crawford’s astrology-based financial forecasts."

On balance, of all the vagaries to factor into market moving decisions, we'll opt for Saturn squaring on Neptune compared to, say, greed-driven culture of risk any day.
