October: Why the bad reputation?

Yes, two famous crashes… but actually the statistics show the month is 'normal'.

Summary: The month of October features in 9 of the worst 16 one day falls in the US share market. But the month marked the start of only one of the worst 11 market crashes in the US. October’s average return makes it the seventh most profitable month. In Australia, October is on average a down month, with November even worse.

Key take-out: From 1985 to 2012, October was a winning month for the Australian share market overall, with 18 wins compared to 10 losses.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
