Today's trading session definitely confirmed it for me.

No sleep til 6400 for the FTSE100
Report unitedbiscuits November 19, 2018 9:07 PM GMT
That's 10% lower than today.

No santa rally this year!

The FTSE lost 4.8% in December.

Even the normally more reliable December options expiry week saw the FTSE lose .75%

If the market follows last year, all of the gains to date will be wiped out and more by the end of the year followed by a big rally in the first 3 months of next year but politics will continue to intervene.

Tory win: end of Jan ftse 7500, no overall maj: 6800, Labour Majority: 5000.

The santa rally has been a no-show so far this December:

FTSE 100 up 0.1%

S&P 500 is doing better up 0.9%

Monday sees the start of options expiry week (expiry: Friday) which as mentioned above can be the week that kicks the rally off.

Closing prices Friday were:

FTSE 100 : 7353

S&P 500 : 3171

Futures are already pointing to a strong opening for the FTSE on Monday
Report Gin December 15, 2019 2:35 PM GMT
Apologies. Closing prices should be:

FTSE 100 : 7353.44

S&P 500 : 3168.80

It took 2 trading days to get the ftse above 7500 and the 250 is flying again today. Who said that a certain Brexit would be a disaster? The fear of Corbyn was a black cloud and the US China talks are another. Plenty of upside still. My fairly modest portfolio is up £5000 already and the trust funds will revalue tomorrow.

Close on Friday:

FTSE 100:  7582.48

S & P 500: 3221.22

So options expiry week saw gains of 3.15% for the FTSE and 1.65% for the S&P 500. Not bad.
Report Gin December 23, 2019 10:01 AM GMT
Presumably, the bigger gain for the FTSE was partly caused by a Corbyn relief rally.

I was expecting a bigger fall this morning after the Iran situation developed. I can see 500 points off the FTSE this week.
