It was the calmest three weeks ever for stocks. You would never know it by reading the headlines, but the S&P 500 was in the midst of the calmest three-week period ever. In fact, during the past 15 trading sessions, ending 8/9/17, it had closed between 0.3% and -0.3% every single time. That has never happened in the history of the S&P 500 and the previous record was 10 back in 1969. The S&P 500 was down 1.45% yesterday. (LPL Research)
