    Default The stock market--Democrats vs. Republicans

    The Market out under Democrats out perform Republicans when measured at the 200 day mark. The difference is quite telling.

    See what happens to the value of your dollar in some of those artificial market conditions. Sorry but didn't find a graph which broke it down by president.

    looks like the rate of change is pretty constant since 1950- around $2 every 5 years.

    R's- Ike, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush 1, Bush 2

    D's- Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton, Obama

    Doesn't seem to matter much who the President is. Congress has a lot more to do with it, in my opinion.

    Who do you blame when it goes to hell? The POTUS of course.

    This Congress has done little else, but show up for the paycheck. The last Congress the same. The Congress before that marginally better.

    With The Fed Reserve pumping some 60 billion a month in freshly minted dollars into buying bad investments from banks via QE3, where else would expect Wall St to put that money?

    Afterall, the Fed is being backed by our largest Debt Holder, your Social Security!

    Zeus, Paul, Franco - just how much stock do you own - do you have even the faintest recollection of why
    markets performed as they did under various regimes?

    Most people try to have a minimal grasp of a subject prior to expounding .

    My economic acumen is quite limited, Marvin. Especially when compared to an investor such as yourself. That is why I have Merrill Lynch manage the lion's share of my investments, which, I am equally sure, is just "fooling around" money for one such as yourself. The rest I manage myself. It has been an extraordinary year for me, fortunately.

    The graph worked. 1920-1940's very strong dollar. Market dropped and buying power increased 30%. However, I wish it was this black and black but there are many other variables.
