Since it’s inception in 1933 the MLB All Star game has been canceled twice. First, 1945, cause, WWII. Second, 2020, cause COVID-19 pandemic. In 1946, the year following the cancellation the winning team was the American League. In 2021, the year following the Covid-19 pandemic, the winning team was also the American League.
June through November of 1946 the stock market fell 21.4%. What happened? Most market crashes are preceded by periods of growth and inflation and 1946 wasn’t an exception. Pent-up demand after World War II caused a spike in inflation.
If it wasn’t for the American League winning I wouldn’t normally be concerned, but I’m almost 100% certain this is a real indicator.
