As we approach Christmas Day, many traders and investors are anticipating a "Santa Claus rally" in the stock market...and with good reason.
According to a recent Forbes article, the S&P 500 has scored a December gain in 17 of the past 20 years.
The Dow Jones has done so in 65 of the past 100 years.
Although it obviously does not happen every year, the stock market undeniably has a history of positive returns in (the latter half of) December.
As technical momentum traders, we never place much weight purely in seasonal market trends because we focus on the performance of leading stocks and broad market volume patterns instead.
Nevertheless, be sure to check out this new stock pick video that uses our online stock screener to show you a few potential breakout stocks to buy in the coming days ($DDD, $QTWW, $THRM, and $IQNT).
