Quite simply "buy on the rumour, sell on the news". The earnings releases are the news, the rumour being the all the earnings forecasts that are put out by the various market analysts, financial journalists and bloggers.

Just looking at the chart, is the market in each October UP? Looks that way.

Tend to agree!

In a bull market (even a cyclical one) expectations can get revised upwards during earnigns season (Hey! These guys ARE profitible).

In a bear market, the opposite happens. Do the same study for 1998-2001 (non Nasdaq) or Nazz 2000-02; Or any large cap index from 1966-80
