Past shutdowns offer little in way of predictable market direction


We didn't start the fire. Today's government shutdown is the 17th in the last 100 years, with 16 of those occurring since 1976.

Compiling the returns of the S&P 500 (SPY) during those other episodes, Raymond James' Jeff Saut finds little to base a market call on - the median return is negative 0.1% and returns are positive 47% of the time.
