In a recent post we looked at the improving trend of market performance
ahead of Presidents’ Day weekend. However, the two days after still display

0.12% but with an average loss of –0.23%. DJIA also has more gains than losses
on the Tuesday after, but NASDAQ is a net loser down 18 of 31 years with and
average loss of –0.49% and a median loss of –0.11%.
Wednesday is all red for all three major averages.
