January and Q1 is Seasonally Strong for Automated Trading System Portfolios

There hasn’t been a losing January in most of the new (and many of the old) portfolios since 2009 and the last three years have been STRONG in January! Distributions and allocations can occur in the New Year and it can be an ideal market for retail traders to ride the trends.

While Q4 has been one of the more challenging quarters, one thing I have noticed in trading, is that when we see unusual market conditions, resolution and normalcy can occur on the new month, quarter, or year. We get all three this coming Monday!
