September is historically the worst month of the year for US stocks. It is the only month of the year with a negative return from 1925 to 2019. Looking forward I remain optimistic on the stock market. I am expecting more volatility in the next few weeks but I think the worst of the sell off is over.
After an incredible rally for the last five months US and global stocks took a tumble last week as volatility returned to the market. Despite the recent pullback I remain optimistic on stocks. I do not think this is the beginning of larger decline. I think this is a normal and healthy pullback after a huge rally. These pullbacks are usually good for stocks.
