The Stock Market, The Calendar, And You by Jay Kaeppel
What’s more important — what you buy
or when you buy it?
Seasonality in the market
has long been a welldocumented
A detailed look
at the stock market will
lead you to conclude
that there are certain
times when it is more advantageous to be
in the stock market than other times.
Seasonality offers a viable approach to
investing and trading, and in this article I
want to focus on this aspect. I will illustrate
how combining four basic seasonal
tendencies can maximize returns.
One advantage of employing a seasonal
system is that it will leave you in cash and
earning interest risk-free much of the time,
rather than leaving you fully exposed in
the stock market. In addition, you will
only be invested on those days with a
historical tendency to show advances.
