Una nota de media mañana. Dinamic Hedge tiene un enumerativo post sobre -ciertas- tendencias que se observan en el mercado de acciones de USA.
Mutual Fund Monday: Mondays are considered a favored day for institutional buying. I’m not sure if there is any hard evidence for this, but it is certainly an observable phenomenon in the last couple years. I rarely fade an into Monday rallies.
4-Year Presidential Cycle: This is a long-term seasonality play that could be categorized under market cycles. I pay very close attention to this one. The major premise being that the second year of a presidential cycle can produce a meaningful bottom in the stock market. The fourth quarter of the second year of a presidency typically produces large gains and the third year produces positive gains in all quarters. This is in effect right now.
2-Year Tech Product Cycle: This one can also be categorized as more of a market cycle rather than seasonality. Technology drives productivity. Semiconductors roughly double their computational capacity every 18 months. This continuous advancement of computational capacity drives new innovative product cycles. This relentless product cycle translates into roughly two-year observable market phenomenon where technology stocks create relative highs every two years. Take a look at a chart of the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index SOX, to see what I mean.
