The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed in the green on Tuesday, marking the fourteenth consecutive time the index rises on the second trading day of the week. Its a good stat to know.
So far this year, Tuesday has been the best day of the week, with an average increase of 0.46 percent. And the second best? Friday, with a gain of 0.33 percent.

On the other hand, Monday has been the only negative day, with the Dow falling in 9 of the last 13 instances. Tuesday also marks the year's 72nd trading session that the Dow avoids a three-day losing streak.
The last time the Dow went this far into the start of a year without a three-day losing streak was 1930. But that streak didn't help much since the index finished the year with a loss of almost 34 percent.
