As Per The Script? US Presidential cycle & equities
July 2007

"As Per The Script?...Boy, it sure looks that way at this point. So maybe we should not be so surprised at all that the markets of the moment appear to be in a one way levitating act, except for a few very short lived speed bumps now and again. If you can believe it, we're referring to the script of the US Presidential cycle for equities. Long time readers know we've referred to this in discussions over the years. It's time once again to have a little check in. We'll get right to it and start with a picture of historical experience.

1. The Iraq War and the equity markets, October and March lows
After a 2 1/2 year decline in the equity markets the Dow made a low on October 10, 2002, the same day the House of Reps authorizes the use of force against Iraq.

The Dow retests the October low on March 12, 2003, five days later it is announced that the U.N. inspectors are being withdraw from Iraq and the Dow closes up 282 points.

Thanks to DU'er Mugsy for the reminder :yourock:

"March 17, 2003: After U.S.-led diplomatic efforts to build support

vote on ita reversal of Bushs March 6 statement that the United
States would push for a Security Council vote on the resolution,
regardless of whether it was expected to pass.

Annan announces that UN weapons inspectors will be withdrawn
from the country."
