From what I hear, August is usually not optimal for trading because the majority of the significant players are not active during this month. It seems like a good time to take it easy, refine your skills, and not to expect too much.
August 2006 was volatile due to the Lebanon War.
August 2007 and 2008 were not slow either to financial crisis!
August 2009 and 2011 were also good.
All good trading months if i recall correctly.. not sure about august 2010..
Sometimes the market just gets lazy regardless of month, and when that month happens to be august..
