Mish’s Daily: January – NASDAQ Has the Best Odds of Gains BUT
Written by Michele ‘Mish’ Schneider
“January provides us with a wealth of information that gets our year off to a good start financially and emotionally.
The data is specifically chosen to begin in 2009 because that is the bottom of the most significant bear market prior to the 2022 bear market, and 2009 represents the beginning of an era of distinctly different execution of monetary policy by the Federal Reserve.
There’s clearly one index that stands out.
As you can see in the chart, QQQ is the best performer based on the percentage of times its January is positive. However, a 60%-win rate over the last 15 years isn’t very impressive, and the other 3 stock indexes have actually been down more often than up over the 15-year period.
So, one clear conclusion is that if you want to be long an index, QQQ has the best odds in January.” Geoff Bysshe President MarketGauge.com.
However, we are all about the Russell’s.
Granddad Russell 2000 has been a stronger performer in January in the last 5 years.
We have started January 2024 thus far, weaker, but the real test will be 2-fold.
First, IWM holds 180. Secondly, how IWM performs versus the 6-month high and low set in January.
