A theory asserting that if the S&P 500 closes positive
in the month of January, it will be positive for the remainder
of the year. This means
that supposedly if the S&P 500 closes negative
for the month, it will be down
for the remainder of the year as well. This was supported by the Stock Trader's
Almanac, which shows that historically, this has been true 90 percent of the time since 1950.
