The best was 2015, where the market gained 12.32%. There is a similar picture to be seen in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100, both indices were able to gain 70% of the time. The S&P managed to gain 1.33% on average, making it the 4th best month. The Nasdaq also gaining 2.26% and making it the 4th best month.
