By October 10, 2019 No Comments

According to BTN Research, In the last 50 years, the S&P 500 has been up 17.5% per year under a Democratic president and a Republican led Congress. Under a Republican president and a Congress controlled by Democrats, the S&P 500 only returned 4.5%.

The S&P 500 gained 12.3% per year when the White House and Congress were controlled by the same political party and when the House and the Senate were controlled by different parties, as is the case in 2019, regardless of which party is in the White House, the S&P 500 has been up 9.2% per year.
