A webcast presentation originally held on February 22, 2017 as part of the CMT Association’s Educational Web Series.

The investment industry follows a calendar that is influenced by habitual human and cultural behavior. Recurring events such as tax deadlines, holidays, options and futures contract expirations, the opening and closing bell, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual portfolio adjustments and restructurings all have an influence on traders and investors.

Markets, sectors, and individual stocks have all shown a tendency to post annual highs and lows around the same time every year. This cycle is known as market seasonality. Sector seasonality can be a valuable tool for improving trading and investing results. In this presentation, Dmitri will show that sector seasonality undeniably exists and how I think it can assist you in identifying opportune times to trade.
