    very unpatriotic to close red on such a big consumer iToy holiday, everybody would be bummed out and nervous to spend $BILLIONS, don't ya think?

    The weekend before Memorial Day will mark the unofficial beginning of summer. The markets have historically been relatively flat going into the “summer doldrums.” However, the DOW has been up ~50% of the time in the weeks that follow the holiday while the S&P and NASDAQ have been up ~60% of the time. Let’s break it down even further.
