As you’ve probably heard by now, 2011 will be a banner year for investors. It’s an absolute lock, according to the venerable Super Bowl Indicator.
According to this theory, when the winner of the Super Bowl is a team from the old NFL the stock market soars. When the winner is from the old AFL, the market drops. Over the years, the SBI has been right about 80 percent of the time.
Fortunately for investors, this year’s game features two old school NFL teams — the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.
But if you’re looking for a maximum market bounce, cheer for the Steelers.
