Market Extra: This could be a September to remember for investors

August was so sleepy it was hard to keep track of the number of stories written about how extraordinarily quiet it was in the financial markets. Don’t expect September to be so subdued.

As traders and investors shake the sand out of their boots and head back to the grind, the calendar offers plenty of potentially market-moving fodder. Add in the usual jitters that accompany the arrival of September, which has built a reputation as an unpleasant month for bulls.

U.S. stocks are starting September on a weak note. The S&P 500 SPX, +0.00% edged down 0.1% in August, ending a five-month win streak while the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.10% saw a small monthly loss to end a six-month string of gains.
