NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- As if it hasn't been tough enough already, markets are about to move into what is typically the worst time of the year for stock investing: late summer and early fall.
Wall Street is also in the midst of what is typically the worst quarter of the year: the third. And those who follow the four-year cycle of the presidency will tell you that the second year of a presidential term of office, like 2006, is the worst of the four.
Ok so now add on top of that the violence in the Mideast; oil prices at record highs; worries about the economy and rising interest rates. I guess I picked the wrong time to start looking at stocks! Lol
