I have a notebook that I keep each day's trading activity logged in. I use one section I call "Just For Knowledge." In that section I keep tidbits of info, stats, etc. I'll post some of the info here on occasion. Hopefully others will share a little also. Here we go again...??? According to Yale Hirsch's Stock Trader's Almanac, since the end of World War II, "in post-election the Dow gained ground when Democrats retained the White House. The Republicans retook the White House thrice (not including the current administration) and the Dow lost ground each time." Democrats: Republicans: Truman +12.9% Eisenhower - 3.8% Johnson +10.9% Nixon -15.2% Clinton +22.7% Reagan - 9.2% Not good considering I largely supportive of republicans.
