Closing Thoughts

The Seasonality Almanac Dashboard uses close-to-close (CC) performance, so one looking to take these trades has a few options. One could enter positions on the second-last trading day of July and exit at the close of the last trading day or enter at the Open of the last day of July if conditions are favorable. It’s worth considering, with overnight or even intraday trades, even though one has curated a high-probability trade, the market could interfere with its own agenda (that being what is most probable to occur). Most stocks tend to be impacted by larger market moves, so it is an advantage to hedge any trades in some way. Even with this in mind, why trade probability-blind when you can trade hedged, with the Odds!

By taking a quick look at the summary numbers at the bottom of the dashboard, we can see that 75% of stocks in the dashboard that meet our filter criteria have a negative expectation for the last trading day this month. In addition to this, we can also see that over half the stocks are expected to underperform the S&P 500 ETF. This can help set the context for July as well.
