Is there a decennial pattern in equity returns?
Does the number in which a year ends play a role as far as stock market performance goes? Take a look at the charts below (courtesy of The Big Picture blog via The Chart Store) for a bit of pop analysis.
The first chart shows the average annual performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since inception for years ending in 0, 1, 2, etc., whereas the second chart indicates the performance of each of the zero years. Voodoo? Perhaps, but nevertheless interesting.
