« Paul Hickey on CNBC Today at 2 PM ET | Main | Employment Report Stronger Than Expected »


45 total years, but only 32 are counted as up or down . . . ??

Sorry about that. The above chart is now updated. Thanks for pointing it out.

I wonder what the stats are on the 1st week in January (as an indicator)?

I think traders are not positioned for a continuation in trend....(most are hedged for an early correction).

I wonder what the statistics would look like if the natural upward bias of the market was removed. This can be done by subtracting the average annual performance to see if the market perform better or worse than average.

The upward bias of the market could be why it is a better indicator when January is an up month, versus a down month.
