Point of Interest - Notice how all the gains are made within the last few days and first six days of the month. This makes sense as institutions (pensions & mutual funds) and individuals (with monthly / semi-monthly paychecks and monthly 401K contributions) tend to transfer funds at the end and beginning of the month.

Note 1: All data is believed to be from reliable sources.
Note 2: Past performance is in no way a guarantee of future results.
