Election Year Stock Gains

Psycho - Shower Scene

Great infographic on historic stock market trends during election years.

Just take this with a grain of salt, though. Remember, the market likes to do the opposite of whatever you think is going to happen.. so if everyone thinks the market can't crash just because it's an election year, think again.

except for Coolidge and Carter administration it appears from the charts that the markets actually came down or were on a downward trend at the time presidential elections came through, this is different than the title of this article

Just at a quick glance, I count 15 positive election years compared to 4 negative election years. WRONG. INCORRECT.
