In this Observation, we examine the historical record of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) in the calendar year following an election. We begin with a statistical table of all post election calendar years since 1889.

The following table breaks down the same statistics by political party.

We have constructed the following weekly composite charts of the DJIA for all 29 presidencies, 13 Democratic presidencies and 16 Republican presidencies. While composite charts are interesting, we would caution that they are drawn from a limited number of observations and are averages of that limited data set.
