EOM Q&A: Seasonality  6.20.17

Yesterday, we studied the current market action to apply what we learned from previous tops to help with our investing and trading decisions. 

Today, I wrap up this series and focus on (five-year) seasonality charts-extremely underutilized by most investors/traders. 

First, seasonality with market leader $COMPQ.

Key Points…

1.    January and June have been the weakest months

2.    May and November have been the strongest months

Next the $SPX.


Key Points…

1.  August and September have been the weakest months
2.  April, May and June have been the strongest months

Last but not least $INDU.

Key Points…
1.  August and September have been the weakest months
2.  February, April, May and November have been the weakest months

Action Points…
1.  Past activity does not predict future performance
2.  Always know the strongest weakest months (different time frames) of everything you trade-before trading
3. Since over 80% of securities trade in the direction of the SPX, always know the strongest weakest months (different timeframes) of the major indexes
4.  Have cash on hand going into the weakest time periods for opportunities

Tomorrow, I introduce a new group of monthly paying, higher-dividend Closed-End Funds. 

Enjoy your day!
