What follows a negative performance in the month of August in the S&P 500?
The S&P 500, together with the global financial markets being in turmoil for around one week already (staus as per 27th Aug. 2015 after market close) may end the month of August with a negative performance.
As the crucial months of September and October are upcoming one can also recheck the historical development of the remainder of the year following such a monthly drop in August as can be seen in the chart above.
The outlook may be not as negative as the current situation looks like in the SPX. The outlook reveils some chances, that 2015 may end on a positive note. With a reasonable Risk-Managment one may sail through the stormy winds and end the next months not at the bitter end.
