Historically, the worst month on the S&P (since 1928) is September. The second worst month is May.

But, you may not believe this one, historically July is the best month of the entire year, next being December then April.

Both June and August are slightly above average returns.

The only months that, on average, were negative are September, May and February.

From best to worst:
July
December
April
January
June/July (tie)
November/March (tie)
October
February
May
September


The thing about the "summer doldrums" though, volume usually dries up so they can push the market up easier (or down) if they wish. They usually do push it up and then they crash it in September before they push it up again over the winter.
