Which month in the stock market is the maximum profit to invest
“Sell and move away in May” – This is an old saying about the investment in the stock market. It is traditionally believed that in the summer months, the stock market remains depressed between May and October and in the winter there is a rapid growth in the market from November to April. According to the proverb, in the spring, the stock should be sold right before the start of summer and in the fall, they should buy again before the price increases. It is also called “Halloween indicators”. There is a great deal of truth behind this saying. A 2002 research paper concluded that 36 of the 37 developed and emerging markets in the world found this pattern correct.
This pattern was particularly strong in Europe. It was reported in the research paper that this pattern continues in Britain in the year 1694. This effect on the stock market may be due to the seasonal fluctuations of optimism among investors. There are some more proverbs to advise on investment in a particular month. For instance, according to “January Effect”, the price of shares increases in the first month of the year. According to “Santa Claus Rally”, investors also become optimistic in the Christmas holiday season and the stock market climbs. So is it better to buy any one month of the year than all other months?
In fact, people do not sell shares in May. Researchers from the USA and Canada found that in the spring investors become bulls and they take precautionary measures. In this study, the flow of money was seen in different categories of mutual funds. It was found that in the summer months, people also buy risk shares, but in the last months of the year, they are not ready to take more risk. Selling stocks at risk is more likely to buy safe stocks. This spring of spring is seen in the financial media even in the spring season. In a paper printed in 2014, two Japanese researchers used text mining techniques to analyze the mood of newspaper articles printed from 1986 to 2010. They found that newspapers are more optimistic in the first six months of the year, whereas, in the last six months, they become pessimistic.
According to the weather, this cycle of mood swings can originate in the weather itself. According to some economists, the behavior of investors changes from temperature rise, the decrease of day length and light level, and according to that the market also changes. Lisa Kramer is a professor of finance at the University of Toronto. They studied human behavior and investment. Kramer found that the effects of weather on people’s investment habits are influenced. He points to the Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) on how long winter, cold and dark days make people pessimistic towards the investment. “People do not always know that their mood has an impact on the investment, but they are getting evidence.”
In 2003, the same writers from USA and Canada had ascertained that seasonal investment behavior is also related to prioritizing different types of investments. Researchers have found that “SAD effects” is important in the seasonal cycle of earnings from stocks and even enough, compared to the countries that settled on various latitudes and the changes in sunlight according to the weather there. The lowest profit was in September. Then he slowly grew up and reached the top of the end of December. After that, it started to fall again and in the spring and summer, it disappeared altogether. In the countries of the Southern Hemisphere (Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa), the pattern of earnings from the stock market was seen at the difference of six months from the northern hemisphere, which reflects the weather there. Most importantly, the “Winter SAD effect” was more apparent in the countries that were closer to the poles and where the winters were small in the winter. Kramer says, “It helps us to understand why there is so much fluctuation in the market. This makes us one step behind taking decisions based on emotions.”
Nevertheless, taking more precautions about investment is not always a good thing. Permanent investments such as government bonds have little benefit from long-term risks. Where there is a risk, there is a high probability of earning. More vigilance actually leads people to take a bigger risk to avoid small losses. If (in winter) investors get more alert and profit for the vigilant investors is generally lower then why does the market grow in the winter? According to the authors, this happens because the vigilant investors decrease their prices when the risks are sold in the fall season. People willing to take risks at the lower level make purchases at that time. Since these investments are at a lower cost, so when the market rises after the winter, there is a lot of profit on these. But keep in mind that there are many other conditions here too.
Do not make the stereotypes:
The impact of the season on profits, but it is a piece of investment puzzle. Firstly, “Sell” in May is just one of the many seasonal cycles that affect the efficiency of the share. There are many other effects like Jan Effect, Holiday Effect, and Turn-Off-the-Month Effect. All these affect the small-cap shares (shares of companies whose market capitalization is less than $ 2 billion). Second and foremost, the weather is just one of the many factors affecting the market. Earnings from the stock market in any year can be contrary to seasonal patterns. People interested in investing in the market should seek help from a qualified financial adviser instead of looking at the thermometer. Professor Mark Ma, an accounting professor at the American University of Washington DC, says, “The weather is influenced by the stock market, but why does this happen, there are mixed reasons or evidence.” Mark Ma acknowledges the SAD effect, but it also shows that in places like Singapore where the temperature remains the same throughout the year (around 32 degrees), this effect has also been observed.
Other factors of fluctuation:
It also points to the January effect that the earnings from the stock market are higher in January because tax year has ended in December. If people earn more then they will have to pay a higher tax. But if they already sell the stock, their taxable total income decreases and they avoid tax. Mother thinks there is no fixed way for investment and profit and people should not rely on seasonal patterns. After all, there are many factors together, especially at a place like a stock market, which can not be estimated.
Haran Segram, assistant professor of finance at the University of New York, says, “It is good to take care of the weather, but you should also pay attention to other evidence, such as the possibility of development in a company or the performance of the past few years. “Instead of investing in a particular month, I’m going to believe the fundamentals of the stock, like cash flows, risk and growth prospects.” All experts who spoke for this article, all said that take care of the weather, but most importantly, take less risk. It may be that you have fewer profits in small rounds, but thinking that a lot of work will be done in the long run. Gradually increase the money and let it grow year after year.
Segram agrees with this. Do not take your investment decisions on the grounds of disappointment in the months of winter, how you feel. Karmer says, “People have an emotional relationship with money, they see it as a means of happiness in the future.” But people do not take decisions in terms of money. I tell my students that it is enduring Of the game. ” “Make regular investments for retirement savings,” she says, “this is the best way to succeed.” When we show more cleverness than the market, they often do themselves. “
