Election realities

What type of effect do election cycles really have on the economy? Take a look.

Do elections create volatility?
Over the last 50 years, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has experienced significant swings from the year of an election to the year following it, regardless of the victorious party. Roll over the chart below to highlight market results by each four-year term.


Historical data of the DJIA chart above reflects annualized average returns and is inflation-adjusted based on Consumer Price Index and each data point represents the month-end closing value and does not include reinvestment of dividends.

Are recessions partisan?
Recessions can put retirement plans to the test. However, recessions are a natural part of the economic cycle, with six occurring over the last 50 years. History has shown that recessions are independent and not correlated with any one party being in power.
