Show Notes

Segment 1`: Seasonal Investing 101
Segment begins at 00:54

Wise King Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” It’s true that everything in nature moves according to cycles. Subsequently, certain market patterns tend to hold throughout the seasons. On today’s broadcast, economist Jerry Robinson reviews several of the calendar-based investing strategies and their historical performances.

  • Six Month Switching Strategy:  Average returns have ranged from 7.5% to 12.2% using this strategy, also known as ‘sell in May and go away’
  • Santa Claus Rally Strategy: Stock prices have risen an average of 1.3% (since 1950) during a 7-day period; namely, the last five trading days in December and the first two trading days in January
  • January Barometer Strategy: ‘As goes January, so goes the year’ has had an 86.8% accuracy ratio since 1950

Segment 2: Make Way for China
Segment begins at 30:08

Bitcoin soared above $10,000 on Friday, thanks to China’s announcement that they intend to lead the way in blockchain technology. As China continues its heady ascent in the 21st century, Washington is borrowing $1 trillion per year to finance its out-of-control spending while cutting taxes for the wealthy. The result: The U.S. just reported a mere 1.9% annualized growth rate in its latest Q3 GDP print. In this segment, Jerry briefly discusses the cold reality of the U.S. economy.
