Elections & The Market
Ed’s Edge – Season 1, Episode 5
2020 has been an unprecedented year in many ways, including the amount of questions we have received from our clients regarding how the market may react to the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election. In today’s episode, we focus on trying to find some answers to those questions.
It is quite apparent that the political climate in the U.S. is incredibly polarized right now. That makes it difficult to answer these questions using economic forecasts, cable news, or current market conditions. As such, we have attempted to use historical data from past elections to help our listeners find some insight as to how to potentially navigate this one.
Our Chief Investment Officer, John Smith, joins us today to shed some light on the current state of the markets along with possible market movements resulting from the 2020 election.
