Historically . . .

By: Hard Way



. . . a divided federal government has been good for the market.  The theory is that nothing like big taxes or spending programs can be agreed on, so gridlock seems to remove uncertainty in the short term.

The first of the last two years of the President's term has also been good for the market, probably related to the divided government that typically happens in a mid-term election.
