Skirt Length Theory

Skirt Length Theory

A theory of investing stating that market trends follow the length of women's skirts. That is, when women wear short skirts, there is or will be a bull market because of high consumer confidence. On the other hand, when they wear long skirts, there is or will be a bear market because consumer confidence is low. There is little evidence that the skirt length theory is true.
