How Financial Markets are Affected in Election Years

You can’t help but notice it’s an election year, and often an election year comes with serious concern that the financial markets will go haywire. So, is this worry justified?

In this video, Kevin summarizes the data of the last 90 years to uncover how the financial markets were affected during each presidential election year as well as what happened in the subsequent year. He discusses if the markets reacted differently based on which party won the election, if there are any patterns of market behavior and if you need to adjust your investment strategy in response to the election cycle.
