It’s possible we could have another contested election result and won’t know a winner for a while. What happened to the market last time that happened?

The 2000 race between George W. Bush and Al Gore took 5 weeks to sort out. During that time between election day and New Year’s Day, the market dropped 7.8%.  If you plug that into today’s market numbers, it would be a drop over 2000 points. 

We’re going to take you back in time:  Do you remember anything special that happened around this time (10/22) in 1986? President Ronald Reagan signed a major tax reform bill into law.  Among other things, it lowered the top income tax rate from 50% to 28%. Unfortunately, it was not permanent. Since then, Congress has raised the top rate to 37% … and it looks like more tax hikes may be on the way. So, I’m guessing this might be a good time to consider having a tax strategy for our retirement?
