Historically Thanksgiving week has shown some very strong tendencies. The last time I showed the table below on the blog was in 2010. I decided to update it this year.
Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving don’t seem to carry a sizable edge. Monday’s total return was actually negative until 2008 when it posted a gain of over 6%. Wednesday and Friday surrounding Thanksgiving have shown strong upside tendencies and the Monday after has shown a downside edge.
