SOLON’S TRADING THOUGHTS
As anticipated last week, the rally heading into Labor Day Weekend ended with the holiday itself. The market sold off hard today on the many concerns surrounding it, not least which being the nuclear threat of North Korea, Hurricane Irma, among others. Tis the season for volatility, and volatility can spike at a moment’s notice with anything being the catalyst. Make sure to hedge when volatility is low and puts are cheap.
