Monthly Forex Seasonality – November 2021: Good for US Stocks, Bad for Gold

Advertisement

November FX Seasonality Overview:

  • The second-to-last month of the year typically invites great returns for US stocks, while leaving gold prices lower and the US Dollar trading sideways.
  • November is actually the best month of the year for the US S&P 500, for both the 5- and 10-year look-back periods.
  • Commodity currencies tend to fare well during November, but the British Pound likewise tends to see some of its best performance during the year.

The beginning of the month warrants a review of the seasonal patterns that have influenced forex markets over the past several years. For November, our focus is on the trailing 5-year and 10-year performances, both of which fully capture trading during the era of quantitative easing and expanding government deficits since the 2008/2009 Global Financial Crisis – not dissimilar from the environment we find ourselves in during the coronavirus pandemic recovery.
