A Long-Term Look At Fed Days

Below is a long term chart of market performance on scheduled Fed days. I didn’t include non-scheduled meetings. Those are generally surprise rate cuts that are aimed at boosting the market. They’re inherently bullish yet unpredictable since the meetings aren’t scheduled. Therefore there is no point in including them in this study.

Over the last 27 years there’s been a persistent upside edge. The average Fed day has ourperformed the average day by about 7.5 times.
