WHY Is The Stock Market So Low Lately?

Why so low lately, with weekly unemployment claims well BELOW even before the Great Depression now? Actually, they are at a 43 year LOW!!! http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2...-year-low.html

The good news is that my wealth manager expects the markets to go way up after the election. I hope he's right!!!

A few weeks ago, my 401K was up about 10% for the year, now it is only 7%. My net worth due to the kerfuffle is like $10K down.

I seriously doubt above chart has been. It it was, it would have NOT looked so bad in 2009-2012.

The Bureau Of Labor Statistics does NOT take orders from the President to "fudge" them.
