    Post-election economy?


    What is the general consensus on the economy post election?

    I say steep fall no matter who gets in.

    Well what i am referring to is after slow and steady gains on the DOW and TSX what do you think will happen after the election is over?

    I think after either candidate gets in it will go down, and keep going down as the market confidence will lower when more changes are made or when investors take their money out due to new conditions.

    Bro, I'm not your average American, the economy doesn't mean jack sh*t to me, I'm making more money every year and will continue doing so, for 21 having made $25,000+ after tax, I really don't give a sh*t about the economy.

    It can be bad and everyone can complain about how bad the economy is and I'll still make the same, if not more, I'm very resourceful, If I need money, I'll make it happen.

    For me, things are just gonna get better, for everyone else, who knows......probably worse, a lot of the fault, actually the majority, is because of the average American, they're f**king it up for themselves.

    ah, why America is slowly falling......


    Anyhow, I think the economy will SUCK for awhile as whoever gets in starts to fiddle around. but with proper work, It should start to do a "permanent" rebuild for about 40 years.

    Gas prices will go back up for sure.... I am paying 1.90's for gas atm.

    I just think we should have a revolution, and clean out the garbage and people who cant function as a part of an interdependent community, and restart.

    The worst is still ahead. Energy, defense, oil and several other large industries will fall tomorrow if Obama seals it up. I don't think we'll see the bottom of the bucket until maybe July of next year. August, maybe.

    Gun and ammo sales are about to increase. If you are in the market for either, buy now bc demand is about to go way up.

    Gas prices will probably rise in the next 2 weeks... they always drop during the month of an election

    The market is going to bounce around for at least another 9-12 months before stabilizing.

    There is still a large amount of insecurity among the US, the housing market is still it the toilet, and the economy has yet to find bottom.

    Im thinkin now is an excellent time to invest in GOLD, the dollar will be further inflated. Since none of the 700B bail-out money went to people and nothing was accomplished besides bank ceo bonuses, another bailout is being proposed for another 500B to actually help this time and im sure it wont be dropped on congress with talks of martial law and before a holiday. The dollar will be so over inflated and unpopular among international buyers there may also be a new currency.

    So if you have american dollars dump them into gold or risk them being worthless. Let me see if i can dig up a vid or article for this point.

    Obama supports giving 1B to isreal, recognises iran as a threat (war possibly) and keep bases in the middle east i dont see how this economic problem can be fixed.

    Some analysts are saying 4-10 years before or at bottom.
    The Fed reserve has to go and so does the IRS and homeland security, what a waste of money.
