No matter what side of the aisle you are on, the presidential election affects us all in more ways than most expect.  One question we get quite often is “What happens if Trump/Hillary win?”.  Unfortunately, we don’t know what will happen and while we can attempt to predict what might happen if Hillary or Trump wins, we thought it would be more impactful to give a historical perspective on the market during election years.




















So while these are just historical averages we can see the presidential elections seem to have an impact on the market.  What will happen on that fateful day in November is yet to be seen.  Will these averages ring true? or will Brexit and a contemptuous election take center stage?
