Why April could be a great month for investors by Paul Summers

According to research conducted by Stephen Eckett and featured in the latest version of Harriman’s Stock Market Almanac, next month tends to be one of the best for equity investors. Indeed, it’s only beaten in terms of historical performance by December — arguably due to what has become known as the Santa rally.
