Trading Calendar – January

The following chart shows the average month-to-date percentage change in the S&P 500 Index by trading day during January from 1990 through 2020. Day 0 represents the December close. It shows that the index during January tends to start positively but fade. We have not used data for trading day 22, because most Januarys do not have 22 trading days. Also, sample size is at most only 31 for specific trading days (only 15 for day 21), so results are only mildly suggestive rather than predictive. For 1990-2019, 19 Januarys have been winners and 12 losers.
