3 Bullish Periods to be in the Stock Market each year:
1) February 18th through May 4th
2) October 27th through November 2nd
3) November 17th through January 7th
The rest of the year is spent in cash
For testing purposes we start on December 31st, 1969. Also for testing purposes, when in cash we assume a nominal rate of interest earned of 1% per calendar year.
Note the chart below that shows results of growth beginning with a balance of $1,000 invested using Seasonal Calendar (blue line) versus buying-and-holding Dow Industrials (red line); 12/31/69 to present.
Certainly something to consider with a portion of one's investment capital. One might even consider ITM LEAP Call options for this investment. You could even sell a short term OTM Call option against the long option to limit one's exposure, if it helps you sleep at night.

Am I incorrect in my research that the thread you posted above is Intraday trading?
I am looking at a longer term investing on this seasonal trading. Here we could include all futures, especially grains. Any thoughts on continuing this thread? Back later.
