September is known for being the worst month for the stock market. The top 3 indexes, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), S&P500, and Nasdaq Composite are also following a trend of falling the worst during this month.
Many unknown factors may influence this market madness during September. One of those factors may have to do with mutual funds selling their positions, even at a loss, to reduce the size of their capital gains income.
