As we suggested here 11 days ago December typically starts out weak. And it has. But despite the recent worrisome headlines about the Fed, inflation and Omicron stocks typically begin the yearend rally right here around mid-month.

So with market seasonality reasserting itself these past few months the prospects look good for the rally to resume.
