written by reader US Presidential elections

By Anonymous Questions, August 19, 2016

Isn’t it true that the stock market always
drops before the US Presidential elections due to the uncertainty of
the outcome?
And isn’t it equally true that it always bounces back up again once
the result in known?
And doesn’t it mean that there is profit in it for the stock market

With that scenario in mind, which is the best of the three possible

1. Stick with your stocks, ignore the bumpy ride. Things will get back
to normal post November 8.
2. Take your profit and offset your loses by selling your shares now,
and buy back again after the election when the new White House
resident is declared.
3. Sell your shares now, but buy back a couple of days BEFORE the
elections when the shares would have fallen almost to their low point
in anticipation of the rise after November 8.

Interesting quandary!
