Trading Calendar – February

The following chart shows the average month-to-date percentage change in the S&P 500 Index by trading day during February from 1990 through 2019. Day 0 represents the January close. It shows that the index during February tends to be about neutral, with the first half of the month positive and the second half negative. We have not used data for trading day 20, because most Februarys do not have 20 trading days. Also, sample size is at most only 30 for specific trading days, so these results are only mildly suggestive rather than predictive. For 1990-2019, 19 Februarys have been winners and 11 have been losers.
