Friday is the last trading day of January. The first day of the month is well known for having a seasonal bullish tendency. Interestingly, I have noted this tendency has not been prevalent over the last few years. This can be seen in the equity curve below.
As you can see, 1st day of month profits peaked 4 years ago. Leading up to that, the 1st day of the month had spent years as bullish. It is curious to see that this edge has not persisted during such a strong bull market, and it will be interesting to see if it re-asserts itself going forward.
