Presidential elections every four years have a profound impact on the economy and the stock market. After a president wins the election the first two years are spent pushing through as much policy as possible.
Frequently the market, economy, and country experience bear markets, recessions, and war. Since , the post-election year has posted the lowest average gain for the Dow Jones Industrials at 4. Seasonality has been on track since September The catalyst for 's decline was persistent European debt concerns. These sovereign financial troubles continue to pressure markets.
Slowing growth in emerging markets, a historically weak post-election year track record, the expiration of tax cuts, and unemployment benefits at yearend is likely to make for an exciting three-ring circus in D. Markets do not like uncertainty. Unless a full-blown bear market occurs in or the market slogs along into the New Year, market gains will be harder to come by in than they have since the March bottom.
A more likely scenario is that seasonal and economic softness gives way as the presidential election approaches and some resolution in Europe coincides with at least the hint of an easing move from the Bernanke Fed. If things look good for Obama, October is likely to be stronger. If Romney wins, expect a bigger move in November. Markets are likely to come under pressure as whoever the president is will have tall orders to remedy the economy, the deficit, and the dysfunctional government.
The easy economic data and corporate results comparisons of the past few years will be gone. Central banking will remain accommodative, but there is little more they can do. After the yearend rally and positive , I am concerned that the next major bear market will occur in the period.
From our nearly 50 years of research these are the ones that continue work. I begin with the long term, multi-year secular bull and bear market patterns. Then I delve deep into the nuances and details of the four-year presidential election stock market cycle, the perennial seasonal pattern before I drill down into the prevailing monthly, weekly and daily patterns.
Whether you are day trading, trend trading or investing for the long haul the Little Book provides insight, guidance and confidence when you are making buy and sell decisions. The best time of the year to go long stocks is October and the best time to sell is April. The saying "sell in May and go away" has become quite well known. But I am amazed at how few fail to realize, and capitalize on, the flip side of this phenomenon. You can't sell in May if you don't buy in October. Investing in the Dow Jones Industrial Average between November 1st and April 30th each year and then switching into fixed income for the other six months has produced reliable returns with reduced risk since Our Best Months Switching Strategy will not make you an instant millionaire, as other strategies claim they can do.
What it will do is steadily build wealth over time with half the risk or less of a "buy and hold" approach. Treasuries offer a combination of decent returns with limited risk. In the Commodity Trader's Almanac, a detailed study of year Treasury bonds covers their seasonal tendency to advance during summer months as well as a correlating ETF trade. Additional Worst Month possibilities include precious metals and the companies that mine them.
Gold's seasonal price tendencies are also covered in the Commodity Trader's Almanac. The quarterly and annual operations of institutions and the seasonal behavior of society and individuals have created a Best and Worst six months of the year. Our Best Six Months Switching Strategy revolves around the fact that most of the markets gains occur from November to April while the market is usually flat to down from May to October. There is and ebb and flow of cash and trading volumes that is clearly influenced by the perennial activities of institutions individuals and society.
Market seasonality is a reflection of cultural behavior. In the old days, farming was the big driver, making August the best market month-now it's one of the worst. This matches the summer vacation behavior where traders and investors prefer the golf course, beach, or poolside to the trading floor or computer screen. Institutions' efforts to beef up their numbers help drive the market higher in the fourth quarter as does holiday shopping and an influx of year-end bonus money. Then there's the New Year, which tends to bring a positive new-leaf mentality to forecasts and predictions and the anticipation of strong fourth- and first-quarter earnings.
After that, trading volume tends to decline throughout the summer and then in September there's back-to-school, back-to-work, and end-of-third-quarter portfolio window dressing that has caused stocks to sell off in September, making it the worst month of the year on average. History never repeats exactly, but is sure does rhyme. The collective human memory is short and the forces of greed and fear are unrelentingly powerful.
As George Santayana famously said, "Those who fail to remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? For investors looking to beat the buy-and-hold philosophy, The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will provide simple, actionable ideas that have stood the test of time and consistently outperformed the market.
