Memorial Week Seasonally Strong

Memorial week has some seasonal tendencies of which traders should be aware. I’ll be going in to some of these in this weekend’s subscriber letter, but below is a study that takes a broad look at the week as a whole. You’ll note that the study goes back to 1983. The reason it doesn’t go back further is that before 1983 the market did not exhibit a seasonally strong tendency during Memorial week.

Despite last year being down the circled stats are all impressive. An average gain of nearly 1.2% for the 4-day week along with a profit factor of 5 is very good. I’ll be discussing this and other Memorial week tendencies in this weekend’s letter. If you would like to view it you may sign up for a free trial here.
