Weekly Review and Outlook
And so we ended the month of January 2022 with a down month. It’s not a rosy picture to start the year, but it is what it is. Just before the year started, I wrote a post on 2022 being a difficult year for the stock market.
And based on seasonal statistics, there is a good 70% probability the S&P500 would drop between 4th January to 8th February. These statistics played out nicely.
