As the first full week of September ends and the summer draws to a close, many investors are still looking for answers to questions first asked back in May, notably:
What's behind the recent market volatility?
Can we put BP behind us?
And what effect will President Obama's political agenda have on investments?

BP may be the next shoe to drop if that blowout preventer proves to be functional.
