    Default Obama's Election and Wall Street

    I heard last week that Wall Street ALWAYS rallies the day after the election of a new POTUS and this year it should be no different.

    With eighty minutes left in today's trading, the Dow is down 325 points.

    On Wall Street, this year is just like any other?

    I'm in the process of trying to figure out what investments would be good for an Obama Administration.

    When is any year on Wall Street like any other?

    The point is that investors don't like questions. The election of the President brings resolve, spurring confidence.

    Somehow I don't think that I can buy stocks in ACORN.

    By the way, your avatar grosses me out.

    I know it is more fun to speculate and just say stuff that you think is true based on your insight and experience but why not use the internet to search the topic. I quickly found this article http://www.nuwireinvestor.com/articl...act-52223.aspx

    Which among other things says:
    While major companies may see their bottom lines fluctuate leading up to and immediately after Election Day, the U.S. stock market can quickly become schizophrenic when it comes to picking our country's new commander in chief. And the last several weeks have indeed seen the Dow Jones move wildly, with swings of hundreds of points in either direction—mostly down.

    Looking back at the past 25 presidential election years, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased some 68 percent of the time, or 17 of those presidential election years, according to Money Morning, an investment news website. With the unexpected events wreaking havoc on our economy, 2008 will most likely not join that group.

    What both financial experts and everyday Americans alike can look forward to, however, will be the month of January 2009. January will not only officially kick off four years of either President Obama or President McCain, but it will also be a market barometer for the financial year. When the stock market posts a gain in the month of January, it goes on to end the year with a gain 91 percent of the time, according to Money Morning.
    I am sure there are many more views on this by more experts on this topic if you care to look.
