Making History - Chicago Special Report | RJO Futures

Chicago is in a place no one alive can remember being. Anticipating game one of a World Series which includes our beloved Chicago Cubs!

There is so much history between now and 1945 when they were last invited to the party. Even more since they won the title of World Champions in 1908. Statistics show that the market is effected by the outcome of the Super Bowl. Is it the same for the World Series? Oddly enough, a pattern has emerged. Between 1935 and 2008, past performance shows that fourth quarter market results were greater when the National League took the crown. 4.2% better as compared to 2.8% for the American League. Between 1951 and 2011, the American League won 33 titles and the National League won 27 titles. When the National League were the victors, the S&P rose 15.13%, compared to only 10.82% when the American League ended up on top. There were NO World Series in 1905 and 1995. Curiously enough, the Dow shot up between 33 and 38% those two years.

Now that you know the market favors the National League to win it all…shouldn’t you?  GO CUBS GO!
