  1. "....if you want to see the stock market go up for the balance of 2012 you should cheer for the New York Giants to beat the New England Patriots in tonight's Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis."

    "It might be hard to believe, but this wacky indicator has been accurate 37 out of the 45 years the Super Bowl has been played. That's a record of 82.2 percent accuracy since the very first Super Bowl in 1967."

  7. You might also want to consider this fact however:

    SPY start of 2008 (according to Yahoo data) : 148.53
    SPY end of 2008 (according to Yahoo data) : 90.24

    Correlation, causations, schmausation....

    Fact: Major cities with more country radio stations have more suicides. What conclusion do you derive from that fact??? Obviously, country music kills people. :)

    Since the Super Bowl/market correlation should go back to the mean, it is more likely that the market will go down, me thinks, but I only play a statistician online....

    So many 'records' broken yesterday.

    As 90% of them are totally meaningless here are some more for the 'record books' -

    Most consecutive Super Bowls in history, effortlessly beating last year's record

    Brady: Most cumulative super bowl passes (he sets a new one there every time he throws)

    Manning: Another new record (who would have guessed!) as he threw the most passes ever for a Giant's QB in a 2012 super bowl (this record has a good chance of never being beaten or even equaled).

    Giants: A new franchine record! Most Super Bowls ever!

    Halftime: Yes, you guessed it, another new record was set: First ever half time show in 2012 plus the most cumulative half time shows of the 21st century (this one I think will be beaten next year)

    And on and on the records keep coming and tumbling.

    I'd love to know how many offical NFL records there are, probably in excess of 10,000. Knowing US sports they probably have a 'new record' for the total amount of records set :)
