October can be a scary month for US stocks

While creating my newest chart (displaying the daily price change of the S&P 500 back to 1950), I noticed that 8 out of the 22 worst days occurred in October (including the infamous 20% drop in 1987). Fear not! October has 5 out of the 15 best days. Afterall what comes down, must go up.
