As you might expect, September is also the worst month for the Dow and Nasdaq.
With a potentially terrible September only days away, what should you do?
Pro trader Steve Grasso recommends looking at single stocks - but not just single stocks that are currently performing well.
Grasso says, look at stocks that have an inverse relationship with the S&P - that is scour the market for stocks that historically make gains in September.
Unlike the S&P, "Seasonally September for Amazon has been very good," says Grasso. "That’s the way I'd play it. But, considering the valuations I’d make my bests with calls to limit upside risk."
