Is it just me or are the markets choppy as hell this month? This is the kind of trading I was bracing for over the summer. Perhaps I got spoiled by the fact that there was some direction each day in the summer. Down 200, Up 150, Down 300 ... some moves with a little conviction. Now it's a joke and the volume is lousy. Is this typical September behavior? I thought Sept was the month people come back to the markets. Maybe a lot of folks have been shaken out or are just sitting back and waiting until after we bomb Saddam.
