January Effect

Tendency of the stock 

Market

 to rise between December 31 and the end of the first week in January. The 

January Effect

 occurs because many investors choose to 

Sell

 some of their stock 

Right

 before the end of the year in 

Order

 to 

Claim

 a 

Capital

 loss for 

Tax

 purposes. Once the 

Tax

 calendar rolls over to a new year on January 1st these same investors quickly reinvest their 

Money

 in the market, causing stock prices to rise. Although the 

January Effect

 has been observed numerous times throughout history, it is difficult for investors to 

Profit

 from it since the 

Market

 as a whole expects it to happen and therefore adjusts 

ITS

 prices accordingly.
