Not hugely interested in the results but just want the 'event' over. It looks to me like nothing will change. The Donald will still get the votes and the press and the 'celebrities' will still be full throttle opposed.

IF " Republicans will win big" meaning that the leftists and dems get a kick in their collective teeth, how do you think they will react ?
I would want to be buying psychiatry sub-index. Or "comfort pets" selling petshops sub-index.

Rick's Pick for Tuesday
Is 'Scorched Earth' What Voters Want?
Published Monday, Nov 5, 5:30 p.m. EDT
Election day is finally here! The results are certain to have a profound impact on investors’ outlook for the economy, although no one can predict with confidence how things are about to turn out. My gut feeling is that Republicans will win big, rebuking a mainstream media whose polls are just as fanciful as they were in 2016. Regardless, if it appears that Republicans have retained a majority in both houses, stocks will move higher — probably sharply so for at least the first couple of days.
If the GOP holds only the Senate, stocks will fall, possibly hard; but if the Republicans lose the upper house, be prepared for the worst — i.e., the ‘Trump rally’ in reverse.

Deep Election Thoughts.
Tammany Hall anyone?
(Tammany Hall was the name given to the Democratic political machine that dominated New York City politics from the mayoral victory of Fernando Wood in 1854 through the election of Fiorello LaGuardia in 1934.)
PS: Trump is really a NYC Business DEMOCRAT. But HRC had the DEMOs locked up---so Trump went in as a Republican.

The other question is: Will the Results of the election affect Thurs FOMC???
How will this collection of eltie academic eCONomist bankers pronounce their wisdom regarding the fate of your money.
Also: from the ever observant Jim Kunstler---
It may be as simple as this: voters look at the two parties and decide that they don’t want the nation to turn into a gigantic seminar on race and gender studies.
The Democratic Party doesn’t have a platform, it has a curriculum. The party wants to instruct everybody how to think and act. You will be tested regularly on the correctness of your thought. And if you fail or object, say goodbye to your livelihood.
That’s the main reason that the Golden Golem of Greatness plays so well in the forsaken flyover precincts of this troubled land. They are weary of being scolded for their “privilege” by the privileged undergraduates of the most elite campuses.

"We have decided to issue temporary allotments to a handful of countries responsible to specific circumstances and to ensure a well-supplied oil market. The US will be granting these exemptions to China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey,"
"We are making it abundantly clear to the Iranian regime that they will face mounting financial isolation until they fundamentally change their destabilising behaviour,"

SWIFT says suspending some Iranian banks' access to messaging system
Iran talking of targeting $400 crude IF it gets pushed around by Trump /munchkin team. But mainly by munchkin.
Russia’s money transfer system, developed as an alternative to SWIFT is now more popular than the global network, said Anatoly Aksakov, head of the Russian parliamentary committee on financial markets. - RT.com
