Should You Sell in May And Go Away?

The historical average for May returns from 1950-2012 is .14%. From 2001-2012 it is 1.23%.

However the historical returns for the past 3 years is -2.85%.

So if you believe that 2013 will be similar to the past 3 years then it would probably be a good idea to lighten the load now.

But the upside momentum is still up so the trend is your friend as long as we're still above 1596-97 in SPX.
