Stock Market SEASONAL TREND and ELECTION CYCLE

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020 Nov 24, 2020 - 10:43 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

Stock market seasonal trend is usually for a weak October followed by strong November and December, which this year is being disrupted by the election. So where the election cycle is concerned the first few months of a new presidency tends to be subdued, following which the bull market settles in and continues it's business as usual. So we could be heading for a subdued 5 to 6 months.


What happens when an Incumbent Republican President loses ?

Answer - Little movement in price for the remainder of the year. Given that Biden looks like he is heading for a win then that suggests to expect sideways price action into the end of the year, which means we are unlikely to see a surge to new all time highs.

What happens when an Incumbent Republican President Wins ?

Answer - A strong bull run. So if Trump pulls off another election miracle and wins then the Dow should soar to a new all time high by the end of December.

If there is no clear Winner on November 3rd?

Stock markets going to drop like a stone, how much? Easily 10%. The worst outcome, though I see as a very low probability event.

Stock Market Implications for US Presidential Election

The stock market's impact on the US Presidential election in terms of percent swing is pretty straightforward.

Q1. Are the stocks in a bull market ?

A: Yes, Add 1% swing in Trumps favour

Q2 - What is the deviation from 1st September when the election campaign proper began?

A: 26581 divided by 28,646 = 7.8% divided by 2 = 3.9%. Capped at 1.5%. Where in my update of a week ago on 23rd October it was 0.55%.

So basically the stock market trend of the past week acts to work against Trumps electoral chances for if he had little chance of winning a week ago, then the 7% drop during the past week has all but ended his electoral chances. Of course if the stock market had risen by 7% then that would have put Trump and Biden near neck and neck, but that is not what happened.

Whilst there will be some variance with Monday and Tuesday's trading, I doubt it's going to change the outcome now for what is likely to come to pass given that so much of the electorate has already voted early.

This analysis is an excerpt from my latest in-depth analysis that concludes in a detailed trend forecast for the stock market into January 2021.
