Summertime Slump is part of that, but looking, my SS sales are down 77%, vs 2018 or 2017, just for a comparison. Maybe it's not just AS?

Thank goodness my SS and other stocks compare to Adobe are better than last year.

In my case, sales on Adobe are always in waves... days of nothing and then huge wave of sales... some kind of rotation and right now I`m looking for that wave on horizon...

For me, Adobe is performing really good this year, with April my BME, almost double from what I usually earn, this month also very good, second best month this year. Completely different from what was last year which was disaster. As if someone clicked on some kind of switch and sales suddenly star to come in again.

Same here. Most months show a good improvement over the same month in the previous year. But to be fair, that has been the case for most years bar one. They have always out performed SS for me.

Spoke too soon... volume and value seem to have gone off the edge of a cliff this week. Looks like I'm heading deep into that trough of the wave that was mentioned. Excellent start of the month though, but that looks like it is soon to be balanced out a bit.

Didn't think it was... although sales today would say it is... everywhere! Best part way through the day here and I normally wake up to more earnings than I have now. About as busy as a quiet Sunday. It's almost like a switch has been flicked somewhere. Most odd.

after a sale of 33 dollar yesterday i was sure 100% the day would have been a disaster and as always i was spot on...ss is so predictable it looks like having a salary fixed every monty...the rest unfortunately is not predictable but level of sales are far from ss. so better capped or not? at this point t least i know i have a fixed amount every month. not bad.

But it is summer in the US, so lots of people go on holiday (vacation). IIRC summers are usually slow. Then sales start to pick back up for the winter holidays right around Sept.

From what I know, it is summer all over the Northern Hemisphere but vacations don't always affect sales that much, at least not for everyone.
My AS sales were way down before summer started. Now it is worse than DP.

But it's winter in the southern hemisphere so no one goes on holiday :D

Right, it's not a holiday but kids are out of school, people are out of college, families start taking vacations, businesses, many in the US, have a slower production schedule. USA isn't the end all for stock but a good percentage. It seems like June - Sept. is slower than some other periods. But of course we also have the after the holidays January, start of the year slump as well.

It's more like, there are some times when sales are good and more times when they aren't, but people want to think the good periods are the usual and the low is the unusual.

Things could be the opposite. = Most of the time we don't get much and sometimes we get good sales.  :(

Same here, extremely slow this month, even after taking into account the 4th July etc. Hopefully there'll be an upturn soo.

My download *numbers* are steady the last few weeks.  But my download revenue is way way down below 50% of average.  2-3 weeks ago something happened and my steady revenue per download over many months dropped massively.
