US stocks rose Wednesday morning, while investors put the uncertainty behind the intermediaries.
Democrats took control of the House, and Republicans maintained control over the Senate, a situation that, according to history, is good for US stocks.
According to Dow Jones Market Data, analyzing markets and electoral data since 1970, this scenario is the best case for US stocks one year after the election, with a broad S & P 500 index rising by 19.9% on average one year later.
Some investors worried that the Democrats would sweep the Republicans into tight races in a so-called "blue wave," but no such slippage occurred. Democrats, especially those considered potential presidential competitors in 2020, saw victory. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts won the races. FOX Business has covered national and local economic and business issues with impact on voters.
On Wednesday, as investors digest the results of the race, many will turn their attention to the Federal Reserve, which begins the two-day meeting in November. Although no change in interest rates is anticipated, policy makers are expected to raise rates in December
