The “NFL Effect” suggests that the outcome of the Super Bowl can foretell market behavior.
Some market statisticians have analyzed the correlation between the behavior of the stock market and the winner of the Super Bowl, and suggest that the DJIA will go up or down depending on whether the winner was from the AFC conference or the NFC conference.
