Hmm, the first year of a Democrat President right after a Republican President. Only four occasions since Eisenhower.

Raw data from Yahoo Finance
S&P500 increased an average of 10.53%, maximum at 23.45% and minimum -11.5%

Prediction for December 31, 2021 S&P500: 4151.73 range from 3324.04 to 4637.03.

I predict that the markets will continue to fluctuate. Last year I made 49.04% in my trading account. Next year I expect to make multiples of that, as I gain confidence and refine my methods.

If anyone is curious I do not attempt to predict or out guess the markets. I try to react as quickly as possible to changing trends, getting on board when an up trend begins and getting stopped out when it ends. Trying to figure out what they are going to do next is a mug's game. There are so many variables the best analysis is no better than a coin flip.
