    The major U.S. indices closed higher today on optimism ahead of the conclusion of tonight’s President Election. According to Bloomberg, today’s stock rally was the most on a Presidential Election Day in 24 years.

    If Obama wins and Democrats DON'T get a big swing in Congress, I expect the market to take off tomorrow. A lot of people want some change but not unrestrained Democrats pushing tax and spend.

    Sell the rally.

    Now that Obama has been elected, let's see what happens tomorrow.

    I think the rule of thumb is that the stocks will close the month about 2-3% higher and then another 1-2% to close out the year.

    So yesterday's optimism about the potential of the election has turned into today's pessimism about the actual result?

    I have to think that, given the ovbviosu direction of the polls, an Obama presidency has already been "priced into" stocks at this point. The idea that we should be treating daily swings --up or down-- in a volatile market as some sort of referendum on the election is a little silly.

    We are entering a recession. Corporate earnings are falling. Stocks are declining.

    That's what happens in a recession.

    Nonsense.

    Obama > $, his magic will lift the economy just as his presence will cool global warming.

    Buy the rumor, sell the news.

    The bottom line is that absolutely nothing has changed in the fundamentals. We will be making new lows in the next couple of months.

    Worst first day stock performance following an election in history.

    bit, you've been all over the forum today but not come back to your own thread here. What are your thoughts? I'm hearing that the market rallied yesterday on obviously unfounded rumors that McCain could steal the election. Today's realization that our economic system under Obama could be in for a world of hurt seems to have caused a huge selloff. Dow down 5.05% since Obama elected.

    The market continues to slide.

    What happened to the rally caused by Obama euphoria?

    Who do you think would be hit hardest by increase in corporate tax?

    You are def. right. If GW could of gotten a 3rd term the market would be skyrocketing.

    there was a market rally and it was because of optimism. maybe it was optimism of an early bed time, or maybe it was optimism of stability. but it happened...

    as for every other day since then that doesn't prove Obama was the wrong choice. it just proves we are in a volitile market, reflecting an economy in crisis.
