Also having trouble during the summer. Eventhough manage to make money during these boring months, my summer income is less than 10% of the total income for the year, (judging by last 3 years) Money could be made just have to be extremely selective and can not afford to over trade. Interesting posts regarding multi day trading. With low volatility, seems like a good idea to hold stocks for days or even a week. Not as much risk with this strategy now, as few months ago, when vix was in the 30's.
