Fans of market statistics can be extremely curious to get acquainted with the table above.
It shows the dynamics of the S & P-500 index after the 50-day average crosses the 200-day average (death cross) from top to bottom. Considered all cases since 1923. That is what happened at the closing on Friday.
In general, the index dynamics in such cases is worse than average. For example, if for all periods the average S&P-500 for the year grows by 9.8% from 70% of positive outcomes, then after death cross the result is as follows: the average growth in a year by 5.8% from 65% of positive outcomes.
This is not the end of the world, however. As can be seen, for example, from the last 5 cases, only once in 2008 the index fell a year later. But absolutely with such initial data, you need to be more careful about the risk management of your positions and more confidently take the signals to sell, if they are (they each have their own).
