The stock market election indicator should be good for Trump, but this year could be an exception
But strategists say the so-called stock market indicator may not be working for President Donald Trump, and it looks like the market is betting on a win by Joe Biden. "You could say the market is discounting that Trump is going to lose," said Daniel Clifton, Strategas Research head of policy research. "Normally, the S&P predicts the presidential election, but that's usually confirmed by the election portfolio." Clifton said a portfolio of stocks that should do well during a Biden presidency have been outperforming Trump stocks.

History says the surprising S&P 500 stocks that led market to record, and the Dow, have room to run
The market is hyper-focused on the group of big tech stocks that now dominate the S&P 500, especially as Apple recently eclipsed the $2 trillion valuation mark and these technology companies come to represent as much as 20% of the index. But it was not the tech sector which posted the biggest returns as the market was running towards its new all-time record level notched last week. The S&P 500 Industrials led all sectors higher in the month of trading ended August 14, gaining well over 10%, and doubling the gain in the broad S&P 500 Index. According to recent market history, the rally could continue, benefitting not just the old-school, blue-chip stocks in the industrials sector, but the broader market and Dow Jones Industrial Average.
