At this time of year, this tends to be kind of flat, but starts moving higher right around August, and spikes right through until October. That’s the time when unusual events start to happen. As you get further into the summer, look for the possibility of taking some money off the table. What could affect it this year, is if the Fed decides to bump up interest rates. Of greater importance is the possibility of some sort of a negative situation happening with the US presidential election. As we get into September/October, that is the time when the market has a history of doing very, very poorly because of uncertainties of what is happening. Uncertainties are caused by negative advertising, so this year look out, as the Supreme Court said super PACs can spend as much money as they want on the election. That means that in September/October things are going to get brutal.

This has very strong seasonality. Normally from around the end of January to the end of May the stock has gone up. Recently the stock has been going sideways, and slightly underperforming the market. We are getting close to the end of May and the technicals are starting to roll over a little. There are better opportunities to invest in other than this one. You want to sell into strength in the next couple of weeks.

This has a double seasonality. It goes up from October to February and possibly as far as April, and goes down from April to October. Currently it is going sideways, and is outside of its seasonal strength, so you don’t want to be in the stock.

He doesn’t do seasonality on this stock. Technically the charts are not looking too good. It is in a downward trend, has been underperforming the market, and its momentum indicators are on the downside. The only hope is that the stock might be trying to bottom out at these levels, but you don’t want to own the stock because it is bottoming out.

(A Top Pick April 12/16. Down 4.72%.) When the technicals come together, that is when you do a trade. In this particular case the technicals did not come into this particular investment, so it would have been better to hold off until the sector started to outperform the market.

(A Top Pick April 12/16. Down 1.84%.) This was actually too early to make the trade, but it turns out the technology sector, just during the last few days, is finally starting to show outperformance relative to the market, so now is the time to start buying this. Also, if you own it, continue to Hold. This particular ETF is very attractive right through to the middle of July.

(A Top Pick April 12/16. Up 2.96%.) This is a classic seasonal play. Historically the energy sector in Canada does well from the 3rd week in January right through until the middle of June. If you own, continue to Hold until around the middle of June.
