In Summary

Seasonal and Calendar Influences on the Stock Market

The best days to purchase stocks have generally been the first two to three days and the last one or two days of each month. Stocks also have tended to perform well on the days before most holidays.

The period of November to April has been the best period in which to own stocks. The period of May to October has historically produced stock market returns that have been below rates of return of short-term income investments.
