Monday was the 7th day in a row that the DJI closed higher. This triggered a study from the Quantifinder that looked at performance after 7-day win streaks in the Dow Industrials since 1980. I’ve updated the stats table below.
There is not much of an edge over the 1st few days. But once you get out a little further, the stats appear solidly bullish. The 16-19 day returns show a very high win %. Momentum tends to carry, and this study is just a simple example of that concept. Traders may want to keep it in mind as one factor when determining their intermediate-term market bias.
