Is there any proof to say that some months outperform others simply because of the time of year?Study:
- 1993 - 2018
- Recorded average monthly returns
- Recorded average standard deviation of monthly returns
We find that the average monthly returns all hover around zero, and because the variance around the actual return number is so great, there is no statistical significance of any sustained positive or negative returns associated with any month.
