Chart of the Day
Today's chart illustrates the Dow's average performance for each calendar month since 1950 (blue columns) and 1980 (gray columns). There are a few takeaways from today's chart. For one, whether measuring from 1950 or 1980 -- the average monthly gains are rather similar. Also, the average year can be divided into both a strong half (November through April) and weak half (May through October). Each one of these semi-annual biases has one calendar month which bucks the trend (February and July). So while the market is currently in the midst of its subpar half of the year, the one calendar month (July) which has tended to buck this trend has arrived.
