As I recall, statistically Fridays are bullish, as are pre-holiday days. Mondays are bearish.

I only do the "Whee!" end of it. You will have to find someone who feels grumpier than I usually do, to provide you with the "Bah!" end of it.

Well, Friday put my portfolio up to a new high. But, I'm a bit ambivalent about it. As Paul Revere and his noble Raiders once said...Kicks just keep getting harder to find, I guess...

I've heard statisticians have learned that 20% of the stock market's gains come on Fridays.

Is there any one day of the week that is more likely to be good for buyers?
