Seasonal Strategy: April Bounce Helps

Usually at this time of the year, early-April, stock markets would have had a nice seasonal rally. Well, there is nothing usual about the market or the economy this time.

As of today, the new bear market closing lows were on March 23. From their highs DJIA was down 37.1% and S&P 500 was down 33.9%.

Since then the market has rebounded to trim those losses.
Now we look to position for the worst months of the year ahead.
