The most recent news story making headlines is Bank of America/Merrill Lynch’s prediction of a “scary summer,” and even recommending that investors move some of their earnings into cash.

It’s rare to see a big bank like this making such a prediction, which may give some investors cause for concern. This summer, according to their chief investment strategist, “investors can expect mediocre returns, volatile trading, correlation breakdowns and flash crashes.”
