Markets continued on course through the summer doldrums, with the Dow Jones industrial average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq each holding practically flat. Despite the broad markets holding steady, there was action in other areas. West Texas Intermediate crude was dropping more than 1% and Bitcoin was down about 3% on Tuesday morning.
While in a broad sense, investors and brokers alike may be abiding by the old market adage of “sell in May and go away,” there is still action happening around the market in the coming days and weeks. The Federal Reserve has a policy meeting next week in which interest rates are expected to remain flat.
