Stock Trader's Almanac: How Presidential Elections Affect the Stock Market

Discussion in 'Economics' started by HeSaidSheSaid, Nov 13, 2019.

  1. from Stock trader's Almanac, since 1833, the Dow Jones industrial average has gained
    •an average of 10.4% in the year before a presidential election,
    • and nearly 6%, on average, in the election year.
    •By contrast, the first and second years of a president’s term see average gains of 2.5% and 4.2%, respectively.

    long term bond is disengaging from short term bond. bond traders considered themselves smarter than stock traders, then if that is true, we're not going to have recession any time soon even we re having a full moon right now (gravitational pull is not going to make traders go berserk).

    So basically the market is immune to any drops.

    Zero risk all reward all the time.
