Whoever makes it to the West Wing will account for how the stocks fare in the market. Come November 8, 2016, there will be a new elected President and you can bet that there will be a rise and fall in the stock markets. Ultimately, this will settle as the weeks and month go by. If Trump wins the election, it has been noted by many in the know, that the buying trends will be on an upswing, but the selling may go downhill. With the email controversy raising its head, Clinton faces a series of problems that can have a ripple effect making it quite bearish in the stock market. For the sake of continuity and transparency that the democrats bring to the table, she is a frontrunner.
Predicting what may happen after the election is anyone’s guess, but since the nation is practically split in two, the outcome could actually work in either favor. Given the fact that there are going to be a series of tax cuts as rolled on by Donald, small and medium sized industries may have a cause to celebrate. Midsized players on Wall Street are bound to be happy about this, as will the big ones who may feel the pinch initially, but with limited taxes being endorsed, they may enjoy a monopoly too. With Hillary taxing a certain section of high-earning individuals and corporations, this is a cause for concern to many of the big guns in the space. The point here is that there are bound to be highs and lows that will manifest, but since the objective is to make America greater, the stocks and share market will ultimately settle down.
There has been a general tone where many feel that the Republican vote is good for the market. However, if you look at some of the statistics in the past when Bush was President, it was not a very rosy picture. Ditto with Obama who made a mark but the global crisis made America feel the pinch resulting in discontentment. As it stands, it is anyone’s guess as to who is going to run the most amazing land of the free – there is nothing to state whether either is going to be good or bad. Election time is one-tenth of the battle to run a country or a state, what happens after the person takes office and gets down to business is what takes the world and the country to the next stage.
