August and September are typically the slowest months of the year for stocks. In post-election years the SPY averages -1.4% and -0.5% respectively. (Thank you to Stock Trader’s Almanac for those stats)
But 2021 is far from typical and the Fed continues to pumps cold hard cash into the markets. August posted a return of +2.9%.
After a few red days, the bears are emerging from the woodwork. Jim Cramer said, “lower stock prices is what September is all about.”

I’m risk off today as the market is cooling down.
