Impact of US presidential elections on the market

Statistics of recent years proves that US presidential elections boosted S&P500 index.

If you look at history of the past 45 years, Democrats had controlled White House 20 years sharply. During this period, S&P500 had been growing over 75% of this time, as the US dollar had been strengthening over 9 years. When Republican President was ruling, S&P500 had been growing over 72% of this time, and US dollar had been strengthening 8 years. Many traders made the right choice and could increase their capital significantly.

If the Democratic candidate wins at the coming US presidential election, we may expect continuation of the uptrend in the stock market. In this regard, there is nothing surprising about a a rapid growth of stock market after the first TV debate on Monday, 26 September, where Hillary Clinton won. Thus, victory of Democrats in the person of Hillary Clinton makes growth of the stock market and US dollar exchange rate highly probable.

Based on results of the debates, depending on the winning candidate, you can earn on CFD on shares and indexes and currency pairs.

According to experts, the closer the election day is, the more volatile market is getting. Time will tell us what will happen in real life.

In the meantime, investors around the world are analyzing the situation, making their predictions and earn, because US influence on the global economy is too significant for market players to ignore it.
