A Santa Claus rally is a seasonal phenomenon that involves a rise in stock prices during the last 5 trading days in December and the first 2 trading days in the following January.

Since 1950, the S&P 500 has gained an average of 1.3% during Santa Claus rally periods. We tested this hypothesis on the Indian and other prominent equity markets.
