The Bottom Line

Focus this week is on the mid-term U.S. Congressional elections on Tuesday. Current polls suggest that the Republicans will win more seats and will regain control over the House of Representatives. Current polls also show a close race for 35 Senate seats with control of the Senate hanging in the balance. Close races in the Senate and House suggest that final results may not be available for another two weeks after the election until contested results are finalized. History shows that volatility in U.S. equity indices increases, but net price change during the two week period is limited After the two week period, broadly based U.S. equity indices have a history of moving significantly higher regardless of final results until at least the end of the year. Strength was notable during the proverbial "Christmas Rally" period from December 16th to January 6th. "Risk on" indices led the gain.

The "Christmas Rally" this year ties in with another important event, the next FOMC meeting held December 14th -December 15th. Chances are high that the FOMC will announce an increase in the Fed Fund Rate one last time by 0.50%-0.75%. Equity markets will respond accordingly.
