Over the last twenty-one years, June has a mixed record. DJIA, S&P 500 and Russell 1000 have all posted average losses while NASDAQ and Russell 2000 have recorded average gains of 0.9%. All five indexes start the month well with NASDAQ and Russell 2000 taking an early lead, but that strength has quickly faded with a mild slide that lasts until around mid-month. A three day rally then ensues before all five indexes really roll over and briskly head lower. The last three days of the month are positive on average with NASDAQ and Russell 2000 charging higher to finish the month higher, but DJIA, S&P 500 and Russell 1000 come up short of full-month gains.
