trading summer months

Hi there,

I am wondering is it true that trading in the summer months are more difficult?

I am finding ends are not really meeting, I am trading the emini s&p, the volume seems to be there but it doesn't seem to be the same. Maybe that's why people are taking summers off, I am thinking the same as well next year.
Maybe you can shed some light.
In general, day trading is more profitable when the volatility is higher. Volatility is usually higher when there's higher volume. Given that the volatility over the summer months is lower it goes to say that day trading will be less profitable ("more difficult") over the summer months. Hope that helps.
thanks for your reply
I would agree it is less profitable
I never do check it, but VIX is very sluggish since beginning of june
