Seasonal ETF Trading Strategies With the stock market up big in 2013 and most participants are speculating on a pullback in the next week or two, Chris says he is on the other side of that bet. Being a technical trader he focuses on patterns, statistics and probabilities to power his ETF trading strategies. So with 37 years of stats the seasonality chart of the S&P 500 index paints a clear picture of what is likely to happen in December.

If you do not know how to read a seasonality chart, Chris will explain it as its very simple. Simply put, it shows what the index has done on average through each month over the past 37 years. December typically has the strongest up trend and probability of happening any other time of the year.
