First five trading days of 2013 – same as previous years

A previous post looked at the average FTSE 100 returns on the first five trading years of the year.

The following chart reproduces the chart from that post – showing the average FTSE 100 returns for the first five trading days of the years 1985-2012. The second chart shows the returns for the first five trading days of 2013.

As can be seen, the profile of returns is similar: the first day being the strongest, with returns trailing off after that, and with the 4th and 5th days having negative returns.
