Here Comes Santa Claus…???

Today, on Christmas Eve, the market set a new high for the year. That is always good news, even if it is still down 25% from its high two years ago. Often called a “Santa Claus Rally” (SCR), the market is usually good this time of year and extends through the first two trading days of the New Year. But, does it predict a good year for next year? As it turns out, a good SCR doesn’t necessarily mean a good next year, but a bad SCR usually predicts a bad next year. So stay tuned for the news next week.

More importantly, I do wish you and your family a warm, healthy Holiday Season….and a bull market next year.
