Touch Down! Market Watchers Hope to Score Financial Advice From the Super Bowl Outcome

Super Bowl Indicator has predicted stock market trends almost 80 per cent of the time

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/13 -- Investors and football fans will be tuning in to the Super Bowl this Sunday, hoping the "Super Bowl Indicator" continues its uncanny ability to predict bearish and bullish stock market trends for the year ahead.

The Super Bowl Indicator (SBI), a calculation for stock market performance based on the winning team, has been regarded as a way to predict a bear or bull market. The formula: when the team representing the National Football Conference (NFC) wins the Super Bowl, the market goes up. When an American Football Conference (AFC) franchise wins, the market goes down. Based on movements in the S&P 500 Index, the Super Bowl indicator has being correct just under 80 per cent of the time.

Jack Ablin, Chief Investment Officer, BMO Harris Private Bank, notes the Super Bowl Indicator worked according to plan in 2012. "It held up remarkably well; the New York Giants won the Super Bowl and the S&P gained 13 per cent. 2013 is shaping up to be a strong year too, we had the best January on record since 1994 and the NFC team - the San Francisco 49ers - are favoured by more than 4.5 points. The Super Bowl indicator is lining up for another good year in the market," he said.
