How Did The Market Perform Under Bush

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Aaron Copland, Sep 2, 2008.

  1. When Bush came into office in Jan 2000 the Dow was @ 11700 today the Dow is @ 11600.
  2. Uh, Bush began his reign in 2001.
  3. Markets were up from 2003 to 2007 and it is because of Bush and Regan. Anything before and after that period is Clinton's fault.
    Man, I'm speaking like a true conservative.

  5. Why does everybody on ET think everything was some sort of conspiracy drummed up by those with any kin d of power :confused:

    Now thats a stupid thing to say. We were in the midst of a crazy run in tech that was over pumped and stimulated. At some point it had to crash. The crash happened just after Bush took over then you got a nice buy op in 2003. Now we're toppy again and have to work off the 30 years of never ending bull market with a bracketed basing market for a decade or so. If Barak is in or Macain and the market moves back up to test the highs or moves lower to the 2003 lows do we blame that on Bush as well or the president that is current?

    I think Bush and his family are responsible for the 1000% increase in SPX over the last 30 years that they have been so involved in national politics. They are also responsible for the increase in the Nasdaq from 300 (Bush 1st) to 5000+ (Bush 2nd) when he took over.

    See how dumb that sounds.:D
