The Small Cap Index (small-cap 600) was up every day this week, five consecutive higher closes. For long-term investors, this is meaningless, for traders it might not be the best time to get overly aggressive, perhaps, slow down for the next 5 days.
In the last five years, it has happened 21 times, and the average final return five-day return has been +0.13%.
Totals and average return for lowest return, highest return, and final return in the next 5-days.
Obviously, there is no edge in trying to short, but there is a slight edge in slowing down. The Small-cap index has only been up 6 consecutive days 13 times in the last 5-years, and only 5 times up seven days in a row.
