The Chart Is Worse than the Bite

September 26, 2013 | About:

I SPY a 5-Day Losing Streak.



Media spokesmen love to spout statistics. They were quick to let traders know that the market experienced its first five-day losing streak of 2013.

The short-term chart of the SPY (S&P 500 ETF) makes things appear pretty drastic. Not shown was the fact that it went ex-dividend for $0.838 per share on Sept. 20.

The nominal loss drops to just (-1.84%) in total return on an adjusted basis. That is equivalent to a $10 stock going down about 18 cents over a full week of trading.
