Historically, the Market Performs Well After Midterm Elections
While America—and more than likely, the world—is focused on the U.S. midterm
elections, the U.S. stock market continues to reach all-time highs. At the same time,
trade wars are weighing on sentiment globally.
Regardless of party affiliation, investors may try to gauge what will happen on election night and whether to
make any adjustments accordingly. From a financial perspective, the good news is that historically midterm
elections have not had a major impact on the financial markets or provided reasons for investors to make major
changes to their investment plans. It’s critical to take a step back and let history be our guide.
