Seasonal Effects and Other Anomalies
In this webinar, we will revisit a series of popular anomalies: seasonal, announcement, and momentum. We will comment on statistical significance and the persistence of these effects, proposing useful investment strategies to incorporate this information. We will also investigate the creation of a seasonal trend model composed of the Sell in May (SIM), Turn of the Month (TOM), Federal Open Market Committee pre-announcement drift (FOMC), and the State Dependent Momentum (SDM). Using the total return S&P 500 dataset starting in 1975, we will estimate the parameters of each model on a yearly basis, based on an expanding window and then proceed to form, in a walk forward manner, an optimized combination of the 4 models using the return to risk optimization procedure.
