August is known for its heat and, for market participants, this August is expected to be extra-hot. Last Thursday marked the 11th straight day that SPX closed inside a 1% trading range, the first time this has ever happened. Regression to the mean tells us that a big surge in volatility is coming. Seasonality tells us that the month should end higher than it begins (which matches our Lindsay view of a Three Peaks and Domed House pattern).
