Socionomic theory proposes that social mood manifests across the spectrum of social behavior, from the movements of stock market indexes to the leaders we elect to the songs we choose to hear and even to changes in the social propensity toward peace or war. This case study tracks a real-time socionomic analysis of the Russian Trading System Index and Russia's military resurgence from 2007 to 2016. It illustrates the utility of the theory for anticipating the character of social actions that express swings in social mood.
