  1. Up 4 days to start a year for only the 9th time since 1960

    The market rally continued and the week ended with a flurry as the Dow gained another 221-points on Friday. It's only the 9th time since 1960 that the indices started the year with 4 consecutive gains. That's usually a good sign for the market for the year, although 1987 was one of those years and of course we saw a major market crash that year, but surprising 1987 did end with a small gain despite that crash because the first half of the year was so strong.
