Hello, There's a quote (maybe by Mark Twain?) that goes something like this:

The worst months to invest money in the stock market are October, January, and May. The others are February, June, November, March, August, April, September, July, and December.

I would love to have the correct quotation, and the source!
Many thanks.

PS- Please copy your reply to me at

I couldn't find it at my favorite source for Twain quotes at http://www.twainquotes.com
so I'm going to email the editor of that website and see if she can verify it.

"October: This is one of the particularly dangerous months to invest in stocks. Other dangerous months are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February."
~Mark Twain

This is the reply I received from the person that manages http://www.twainquotes.com (Barb)

That is indeed a Twain quote. It is from PUDD'NHEAD WILSON
and appears at the beginning of Chapter 13 as a quote from
"Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar".

I believe Niels Bohr said much the same thing!
