Has August become the Most Volatile month?

Historically, September was the most volatile month (for the Stock Market in the North America).

However, this August, 2017 also seems pretty volatile. Does all credit goes to Mr. Trump? or this is the regular summer time sell off? Apparently, this is for both (gut feeling and as I understand and as I see on Bloomberg)

Anyway, Today's performance, for my ETFs of interest. Mostly down.

Is it a matter of worry? Investment when it is for long term, day to day craziness usually useless and should be ignored (theory and practical history) for the most part though long term trend formation might need to be kept checked. Many will use this volatile period to enter into the stock market; while some day traders might be making money on this volatility. probably, some day traders lost money because of this volatility.

For long term investors, such incidents really should not cause much worry (as I do understand, as I did study, according to historical performance, and according to my experience).
