but statistically the markets finish higher during US election yrs (for the past 40yrs)
(if only i knew this fact, this time last yr)
there are some goods stats and studys to back this up - just google
also the Euro hit major support in June just as everyone said the Euro would collapse
so obviously Euro up and the dollar down / equities up etc etc....
2013 may not be the same though - especially as some have got used to the free ride and upward markets
and the ponzi scheme, that is the stock market - would collapse itself if it did nt take back and replenish the house's pot
