Investment Markets Overview — W/E 7th November 2014

Just as the people within the UK and the EU vented their frustrations with main-stream politicians earlier this year, the American people voted for change in this week’s mid-term elections, albeit that they currently have little choice other than the two main parties. Regardless, the Republicans roared back to win control of the Senate and thereby ensuring control of both chambers of Congress. The Democrats were punished for being tied to Obama, as exit polls showed a 54% disapproval of the President versus a 54% approval two years ago, with the same CNN poll showing that 65% of voters felt that national economic conditions were poor, despite the “official” lies statistics suggesting falling unemployment and a rebounding economy. With the most expensive mid-term in history now complete, the emboldened Republicans will likely press Obama on immigration and the controversial Obama-care, aka the Affordable Care Act, conveniently delayed until after the mid-terms and set to commence in January 2015. The polls show the approval rating of Congress at a lowly 7%, even worse than Obama’s 39%, so unless this bunch can get their collective act together, expect to see a rise in 3rd party independent candidates before the 2016 election.
