As a preview to our Q 4 2010 Newsletter, Donald completed an extensive research project today and with amazement we decided to preview the results we found.
Our goal was to determine the historical pattern (not that history predicts the future, but it often rhymes) of the capital markets after a mid-term election. In our Q4 2010 Newsletter we will expand on our findings.
The reason I am jumping the gun a bit and reporting our findings are they were so surprising to us. Donald’s research went back over the last 17 mid-term elections and I expanded his research to include the two prior mid-term elections, for a total of 19 mid-term election years.
So here is the question:
In the year following mid-term elections, since 1934 (19 years total since mid-terms come only every 4 years), as far back as we can comfortably measure with accuracy, of those 19 years, in how many years did the capital markets have a negative return?
PLEASE VOTE, AS WE WILL GIVE THE ANSWER, ALONG WITH OTHER FINDINGS IN THE Q 4 2010 Newsletter!
Have A Great Day!
