2018: The Weakest Year in the Presidential Election Cycle Has Begun

By Dimitri Speck The Vote Buying Mirror Our readers are probably aware of the influence the US election cycle has on the stock market. After Donald Trump was elected president, a particularly strong rally in stock prices ensued. Contrary to what many market participants seem to believe, trends in the stock market depend only to a negligible extent on whether a Republican or a Democrat wins the presidency. The market was e.g. just as strong under Democratic president Bill Clinton as it was under Republican president Ronald Reagan. The mid terms specter. From a statistical perspective, the decisive factor for the market trend is not the party allegiance of the president, but rather the year of the presidency. In this context we speak of the presidential cycle, which has a distinct pattern over its four year duration. The following chart depicts this election cycle, i.e., the average four-year pattern of … Continue reading

The Financial Road Map for 2018

By Nomi Prins This post The Financial Road Map for 2018 appeared first on Daily Reckoning. In last year’s roadmap, I forecast that 2017 would end with gold prices up and the dollar index down, both of which happened. I underestimated the number of Fed hikes by one hike, but globally, average short-term rates have remained around zero. That will be a core pattern throughout 2018. Central banks may tweak a few rates here and there, announce some tapering due to “economic growth”, or deflect attention to fiscal policy, but the entire financial and capital markets system rests on the strategies, co-dependencies and cheap money policies of central banks. The bond markets will feel the heat of any tightening shift or fears of one, while the stock market will continue to push ahead on the reality of cheap money supply until debt problems tug at the equity markets and take … Continue reading
