This Political Arrangement is the Worst for Markets

(New York)

The market had a relief rally right after the election results came in. Yesterday wasn't so good. The big question on everyone's mind is where the market is headed from here. Looking historically, the current political arrangement (split Congress, Republican presidency) is the worst for markets. The S&P 500 has had the lowest returns in the current political set up, though it has only occurred four times since 1900.

FINSUM : The market's outlook for 2019 appears fairly bleak to flat for us. The main reason why is that there won't be another major tax package, and the great earnings of this year will make 2019 comparisons look weak. Growth is also likely to slow.
