    Wall Street Already Betting On Who Wins in November

    With just 100 days left until the U.S. presidential election, investors are beginning to make bigger bets on which candidate will carry the day.

    One analysis concludes that last week's sharp three-day market surge can only mean that Wall Street is banking on a victory from Republican Mitt Romney.'

    The thought of four years of Romney as President makes me sick.

    Four more years of Obama will likely kill me.

    I think I will vote for Camacho.

    An interesting conclusion that neglects one small fact. Both parties are trying to mae a claim the economy will increase with their leadership. Boehner seems to be backing off the ideas that crashing the economy will ensure a republican win by disgracing Obama. This is probably because of the damage done to their reputation last year by their attempts to do that. It would seem that now both parties are going to try and claim economic growth as their influence. Hence the actual purpose of the article. The economy is coming around due to the potential for romney to be president.

    presently that doesn't mean shit. Since both parties are going to look to improve the economy so they can claim it as their victory it is quite probably the economy will see some improvement as we go into the end of the election. Also, the back to school and fall holiday shopping season is coming up and due to a more hopeful outlook it will probably mean people are going to loosen up their spending which they have been holding back on for the past few years. You add in a few other factors and it is actually a good bet to presently invest and drive up prices in the stock market as it will probably go up. So yeah it makes sense to bet on the next few months as being a time to invest and see your money grow.

    This doesn't mean much aside from a temporary confidence in the market that will benefit those people who can get in and out quick and make money on the present upswing that can be anticipated. You push the economy up, encourage the little guys to take risks which further ups the stocks, then before the wave breaks you get the fuck out and leave the people who stay in too long holding the bag. Fuck, this is like standard stock market manipulation 101. The big money in the stock market is not in long term investments, but rather in riding the waves. It is far more likely the market people are creating a wave in the middle of election confidence in both candidates. It has nothing to do with anything other than a prediction they can manufacture an upswing to make money in IMO.

    Given the reality they can make money on the up and the down market volatility is actually profitable for them. The only thing that cuts their profits is market stagnation. Do yourself a favor, figure out where the upswing is coming, figure out when they plan to break the wave. Invest in the upswing, get out before the crash when it is easy to sell, and don't worry about missing some of the upswing. Put the money into making money on the backside while the stock is falling. If you are good at this you too can make money doing nothing but moving money around. Just beware that as the little guy you are behind the curve and they will try to stick you with the payments.

    This has nothing to do with the president, and everything to do with how to make money.

    Yeah, great movie, and unfortunately too true.

    Camacho was the highest IQ person on the planet in that story till Not Sure showed up, lol.

    I'd take him any day over Mittens and Hussein.
