Where is the Stock Market Going in 2011?

J Peter Lynch

Talk about the Million Dollar Question wouldn’t we all like to know the answer to this question? Unfortunately, as we all know – no one knows the answer to this question. But we can look at history and find some fairly interesting data (from the Stock Traders Almanac -, while not perfect, certainly has a far above average accuracy.

The Dow Industrial Average [DJIA] managed its best month of January since 1997 with a return of 2.7%, while the S&P 500 [SPX] fared nearly as well with gains of 2.3%.

There is an old stock market saying, first coined by legendary market historian Yale Hirsch, "As January goes, so goes the year,"

The average return, based upon data since 1970, for the rest of the year after an up January is 12.2% for the S&P 500. Following down January returns the S&P 500 has averaged 11-mo returns of -2.1% until the end of the year.

Does this mean that the market will be up over 12% for 2011? There is no way to know.

But it is certainly interesting to look back at history and see that a positive January certainly bodes well for a positive stock market in 2011.
