I’m not concerned about a seasonal tendency like a Santa rally. I’m concerned for the aftermath. In normal years there is a holiday euphoria that went missing for the most part this year. While the week directly after Christmas is usually bullish it can be diminished as the euphoria has passed but as I said there wasn’t much euphoria to speak of this year.
Stocks fell sharply on Friday, reversing earlier gains, on the back of a very disappointing U.S. jobs report; Earlier on Friday, gold was down for the sixth consecutive trading day and looked like it would be heading further lower.
