Seasonality: October through December

October has started out in a most volatile fashion. But it’s “Sell in May and go away,” which also means that November begins the converse...the best six month period for the market historically. 

So let’s look at the market the last three months of the year, some of the following courtesy of the 2014 edition of “Stock Trader’s Almanac,” put out by Jeffrey A. Hirsch & Yale Hirsch. Other data is from my own extensive data base as well as Yahoo Finance.

Oct. 0.7%
Nov. 1.5%
Dec. 1.7%

The average monthly returns for the Nasdaq, 1971-April 2013, are:

Oct. 0.5%
Nov. 1.5%
