The Week in Charts: What Pullback?

If you’re a long-term investor who only checks his statements once a month, and today is the day for your monthly review, you’d be excused for taking a quick glance at your statement and surmising it had been a pretty tame month. After all, in the past 30 days, the $SPY is essentially flat.

Ignorance is bliss.
