Was Wall Street happy after he got re-elected? Elections have consequences.
No. Wall Street was not happy after the election. If you recall, the market plunged day after day after day but finally stabilized after it appeared that the GOP and Obama would work to avoid the fiscal cliff.
Now the markets (investors) are even unhappier. Such a sharp immediate negative reaction after Obama spoke may suggest that markets will really crash on Monday when there’s no deal. I hope people are all in cash or commodities.
