Investment advice for the wary

Filed under: Survival Strategies — theotheri @ 1:19 pm

“October is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks.  Others are July, January, April, September, November, May, March, June, December, August and February.”      Mark Twain

This advice, of course, only applies to months in the future.  Months that are not dangerous can be identified by comparing the opening and closing values of your favourite index, such as the Dow Jones Average.  Months where closing values are greater than opening values are good months to invest.

This advice works 100% of the time.  Unfortunately, it can be applied only to months in which you are in full possession of both opening and closing values.
