Seasonal Greetings

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

That’s if past is prologue for equity traders and investors.   Since 1950,  the S&P500 has averaged a 1.61 percent return in December, three times the overall monthly average return.   Furthermore,  the S&P500 has generated a positive return in December almost 75 percent of years since 1928.

We put together the first chart and our friends over at The Chart Store constructed the other four.  They have a longer times series and do some incredible work.
