Suffering from Octoberphobia? We have the cure.
Octoberphobia, n. the fear of major stock market declines in the month of October
Suffering from Octoberphobia? We have the cure. Our Tactical Seasonal Switching Strategy and our Best Six Months Seasonal MACD Buy Signal. We are NOT issuing the Buy Signal at this time. We are only preparing you for when it does arrive. October is the last month of our “Worst Six Months” of the year May-October. Our technical MACD Buy Signal can come any time on or after October 1.
Our Best Six Months Switching Strategy – as many know as only “Sell In May” – continues to beat the market with evidence-based results. As featured in the Stock Trader’s Almanac the Best Six Months November to April has gained 7.5% for the DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA)since 1950 while the worst months gain a paltry 0.6%.
Using our MACD technical triggers exponentially improves those returns to 9.1% v. -0.8%. Our MACD signals unleash the power of compounding, nearly tripling the results of a hypothetical initial one-time $10,000 investment in the Best Six Months in 1950 from $1.07 million to $2.98 million and the minor gain of $1,461 turns into a loss of -$5,862.
The usual Octoberphobia decline is likely to set up a perfect Best Six Months Buy Signal for new highs at yearend 2019 and beyond.
