A quick highlight from the Market Recap includes this positive quote:
"The best news from the first quarter was that the stock market was positive in January. This is a welcome sign as “since World War II, if the market is up in January, it has continued to rise in the remaining 11 months of the year more than 85% of the time, and the average gain is about 11.5 %. As the old saying, ‘as goes January, so goes the year.” 1
