Show Notes For This Episode

 

Could the US elections be the market mover that investors have been fretting over, or is that just political noise clouding the bigger financial picture? It’s time to talk about the upcoming election and what it could mean for investors over the next two years. We’re not just skimming the surface; we are diving into the data to see how investments have historically fared during the electoral tides, from Truman’s post-war boom to the unpredictability of Trump’s term.

No one can predict what’s going to happen in 2024, but the past may hold the insights you need to navigate future market uncertainties. We’ll juggle the tough questions about how to stay grounded when the political and economic spheres collide, especially during the frenzy of election cycles. The episode will hopefully highlight the importance of a steadfast investment plan through the ups-and-downs of the market, debunking the myth that one party’s control spells doom or bloom for your portfolio.
