Summer's over. Welcome to September. Something you should know: It's the worst month for stocks.
Dan Greenhaus of BTIG explains just how bad it is. Probably worse than you realized.
September is a tough month but how tough seems to go overlooked. As the chart to the left illustrates, September is not just the worst month for equities, its easily the worst month for equities over nearly every time frame (with a particularly negative returns in the back half). September 1931, when the Dow fell nearly 31% in just the one month, is the worst single month since 1915 while the month overall tends to be down nearly 60% of the time. Since 1915, no other month is down even 50% of the time.
