The 4 years USA Presidential Cycle Trading strategy

The 4 years USA Presidential Cycle Trading strategy

Hello everyone,
Here is a well-known strategy, and very effective.
We buy a US index in the 3rd year of the presidential cycle, and sell the following year.
Actually, indices (such as Dow Jones, S&P500) raise because periods of presidential campaigns, whose promises make indices to grow.

I had to adapt some dates with the symbols ” >= ” , because there are days when September 30 for example is not a business day.
The strategy is profitable nearly each time.
The test was launched since 1982, but actually by launching the strategy in 1932, it is almost always positive (just 2 short years with low losses ).
