We warned last month that August had a miserable reputation for being unfriendly. Fortunately, the month was not unfriendly, but then it was not friendly either. The market had posted a return of 10.57% as August started and finished at 10.55% for the year. The return was not harmful, but was not beneficial either. However, we will take a drop of only 0.02% for the month and be thankful the month is over.
