"Sell In May" Search Hits New High. Highest since May 2007

Every May the "Sell In May" term spikes in Google Trends.

It has now hit an all time high, and the highest its been in since May 2007.

May 2007 was close to the pre-crisis high point in the S&P500 index.  It would have turned into a good 'sell' signal' as market was down the rest of the year.

Interestingly one of the lowest points in the last eight years was in May 2008.  Neither May 2007 nor May 2008 would have been good times to invest in the S&P index ETFs.
