The Market's Pre Election Jitters.

6 minutes

If there's one thing that markets hate: it's uncertainty. And nothing can create as much uncertainty as US Presidential Elections.

Look at the current Election. The differences between the two Candidates could not be more stark. On the One hand is the incumbent Donald Trump, President Trump presents positions that on balance are for aggressive trade policies, lower overall taxes, and reduced regulation. While Challenger Joe Biden promises more relaxed trade policy, higher taxes, and a more aggressive role for government in the economy.

Two very different views of the role of government. And right now, it is not certain who is the real front runner. I have seen polls on both sides, although it is probably accurate to say that Vice President Biden holds a very slight lead.

So uncertainty abounds.
