    Anyone trade seasonality ?
    Maybe it's more related to commodity trading ?
     
  2. Someone posted a heatmap years ago that proved very accurate. Im sure the very smart traders incorporate it into their trading.

    If you really want to dig into it, seasonalgo and MRCI (both paid services) are the best sources for ideas. I papertraded some Seasonalgo seasonals about 2 years ago and was moderately "profitable." I think the ags/meats/softs make more sense than financial contracts (currencies/indicies/bonds).

    Except for day trading, I always check seasonal before anything else. But I would never trade only on a seasonal pattern, only on fundamentals or only on a chart indicator.

    Seasonal analysis is really overlooked. The average of the past 20 years, display on a chart will not tell anyone when to buy and when to sell. Sorry for adept of the "KISS" in trading (Gurus love that), it is just way more complicated.
    I also agree on the commodity side and I will add all kind of indices.
