S&P 500 Rises 1% Each Of The Last 4 Days, Something Done Only 3 Times Since WWII

The S&P 500 started with the best November ever with a 7.4% gain in the first four days and joined an elite performance club.

Four Days of 1%: The S&P 500 gained over 1% in each of the first four days of November.

This was something that had only been accomplished three other times since World War II, according to LPL Financial's Ryan Detrick.

All three of those occasions saw strong six month and 12-month performance for the S&P 500 afterwards:

  • On June 1, 1970, the S&P 500 saw a 12.3% gain over four days. The six- and 12-month performance after were 10.4% and 28%, respectively.
  • On Oct. 14, 1974, the S&P 500 saw a 12.2% gain over four days. The six- and 12-month performance after were 18.6% and 23%, respectively.
  • On Oct. 11, 1982, the S&P 500 saw a 10.2% gain over four days. The six- and 12-month performance after were 14.8% and 26%, respectively.
