Here’s a crazy stat to bring up if you’re talking markets this weekend.  When the S&P 500 closed down on May 29th, it marked the seventh straight month where we saw a down day on the last trading day of the month.  Going back to 1928, that’s tied for the longest streak of end-of-month declines ever!  Remarkably, this same 7-month down streak occurred very recently back in November 2013 (which was a great year for the market).  We’ll be watching on June 30th to see if the S&P closes in the red that day.  If it does, it will mark eight straight months with a down day to end the month — and a new record will be made.
