The month of January supplies us with two interesting indicators;
the “first five days” early warning system and the full-month
barometer (which I’ll cover next week).

Employing the S&P 500, since 1950 the market has risen over
the first five days of the year 35 times. In 30 of these the market
has then proceeded to post full-year gains. [The record is more
mixed, 11 up / 10 down, in the 21 years where the market
declined the first five days.]

A sampling

S&P 500 Total return 1st 5 days / Jan.

1995 +37.4% .. +0.3%
1996 +23.1 . +0.4
1997 +33.4 . +1.0
1998 +28.6 . -1.5
1999 +21.0 . +3.7
2000 .. -9.1 .. -1.9
2001 . -11.9 . -1.8
2002 . -22.1 . +1.1
2003 +28.7 . +3.4
2004 +10.9 . +1.8
2005 ..+4.9 -2.1

Source: “Stock Trader’s Almanac / 2006.” *Note: I have listed
the total return figures for the S&P 500 above, including
dividends. “Stock Trader’s Almanac” only uses the gross figure
for the index without including dividends.

Have a healthy and prosperous new year.

Wall Street History returns next week with more data.
