September To Be "Nasty"?
If you are familiar with my blog, you probably know I advocate using the 200-day moving average as a buy/sell signal. Bad things tend to happen when the market is below its 200-day moving average. David Mcalvany compares today's markets to 1987 - low volume and high volatility. The big drop in 1987 came just after the market had sunk below its 200-day moving average (in October). Currently the markets are above their 200-day moving average, but I do not expect that to continue during September/October. When that happens, it could be a good sign to take some money off the table, if you haven't done so, by that time.
What would it take for you to reduce your equity portfolio?
