I recently read that they hold Elections in November because that is when the turkeys are picked for Thanksgiving! Technical Analysis says that if the incumbent party is to be re-elected, the market rises into November - so far, not too good for Hilary.

Last week was a definite SOW ( Sign Of Weakness in Wyckoff terms) for the stock market. Breadth was terrible, and the Dollar was stronger - hurting Int'l companies.
