If you track the markets, then you know the Standard & Poor's 500 Index has been on a merry-go-round since Aug. 4.
Since that date , the S&P 500 has been stuck in a 10% trading range – between about 1,100 and 1,200. In other words, the index goes down 100 points, then goes up 100 points – in a sort of déjà vu cycle that gets repeated over and over.
Indeed, the S&P has made that frustrating round trip a mind-numbing six times in the past eight weeks.
It's enough to drive any investor out of stocks and to the sidelines. It's understandable if you're considering an early exit yourself.
