Jeffrey Hirsch is a leading expert on seasonal trading and market timing. In his Stock Trader's Almanac, he looks at October's historic trading patterns and what this portends for the month ahead.
Our outlook for the full year remains clearly bullish, more in line with the best cast scenario of our Annual Forecast made last December. S&P 500 is already up 17.7% so far this year, observes Jeffrey Hirsch, seasonal trading expert and editor of Stock Trader's Almanac.
Following our “Best Months” Seasonal MACD Buy Signal on November 5, 2020 we ran our screens and LeMaitre Vascular (LMAT) was added to our portfolio at $37.29, recalls Jeffrey Hirsch, seasonal timing expert and editor of Stock Trader's Almanac.
Just before the market had its historic November to remember — with the small cap rally that pushed the Russell 2000 index of small cap stocks up a record breaking 18.3% — Avid Technology (AVID) rose to the top of our fundamental and technical screens, explains Jeffrey Hirsch, seasonal timing expert and editor of Stock Trader's Almanac.

Jeff Hirsch is still bullish for full-year 2021. But he expects seasonal weakness and other factors to keep a lid on stocks during the worst six months, May-October. Bullish monetary and fiscal forces should hold up support near the early spring lows. Then the bull should reemerge pushing the market to finish the year in the range of his base and best-case Annual Forecast scenarios around S&P 4200-4300 or more.

January Barometer 2021 is negative with the S&P 500 down 1.1%. This diminishes Jeff Hirsch's near-term outlook as every down January since 1950 was followed by a new or continuing bear market, a 10% correction or a flat year. But market behavior remains on track with historical seasonal patterns. The Santa Claus Rally and the First Five Days were both positive. So, Mr. Hirsch's January Indicator Trifecta is two for three. Join him for an update on his 2021 outlook in the wake of another down January.
