How do you think the market is going to react to the presidential campaign and elections this year?

Asked by Yuri Katz, Los Angeles, CA Sun Feb 5, 2012

Do you even think there's any connection at all?

Well, based on the Case-Shiller Index, the market crashed during the last campaign, boomed in 2004 and 2000, was up slightly in 1996, was level in 1992, and boomed in 1988.

I think there's no connection at all.

Markets dislike uncertainty. A close election will create that sentiment. That said, I think the economy is about to pick up, including employment, which will likely favor Obama.

I sincerely believe that people WANT to believe;
this is the way of America.
We always want to think that the grass is greener, and that the new guy will do a better job.

It also gives the nay-sayers something to keep them busy.
