What is "December Low Indicator" and has it been consistent?  What are the top performing  NASDAQ months? The STA has long been a standard of statistics and in-depth analysis (an understatement) of data galore on the patterns of the U.S. Stock Market, and a sure way to get lost in the sea of data for a compelling dive into applicable historical patterns.  And for the past few years STA has partnered with the Probabilities Fund to apply much of this data to real live trading.  This is an episode you don't want to miss.  Jeff is the son of the founding publisher of what is now the 54th Edition, and they just keep getting better.  Hope you enjoy it
