S&P 500 Historical Performance On January 2nd - Happy New Year

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

January 2nds offers a mix of data. Wednesday January 2nds in specific are negative, headed pretty much straight down. January 2nds as a whole are positive on a percentage and points basis. Wednesdays in January are positive as are Wednesdays in general. 2nds overall are also positive.

History is likely not a large driver today given "The Cliff". Things will probably remain subject to headline risk through the debt ceiling resolution in a month or two.

Happy New Year and have a good day.
