Year’s Best 3-Month Span About to Start

November, December and January constitute the year’s seasonally strongest 3-month period for the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrials and the Nasdaq Composite. This seasonal strength is created by a combination of the annual, semiannual and quarterly operations of institutions and the habitual behavior of retail investors and consumers, notes Jeff Hirsch, editor, Stock Trader’s Almanac and Almanac Investor newsletter.

The November-January 3-month span has produced a gain of 4.3% for the S&P 500 and DJIA since 1949. October-December runs a close second at 4.1% for the S&P and 3.9 for DJIA. Since 1971 Nasdaq has gained a whopping 6.3% November-January with December-February in second at 5.0% and October-December in third at 4.4%.

These charts also highlight the Best and Worst Months of the year with the Best running from October/November to April/May/June and the Worst from May/June/July to September/October. Stocks have been firming up since we issued our Seasonal MACD Buy Signal to subscribers on October 8 and look poised for a solid yearend rally that continues into early 2022.
