Every single boilerplate disclaimer out there says past performance does not predict future returns. They then proceed to tell you about their magical formula, their genie in the lamp, their fibonacci retracement, or their fund manager from Harvard who hasn’t blown up his first trading account yet.

One chart shows exactly why weekly price performance matters. This is what happened to anyone who only bought after the market was up for the week.
