The Market in Five Charts: October 2022

October 6, 2022 - A recent Wall Street Journal article noted that the markets generally go up after a mid-term election. But Chief Investment Officer Rick Pitcairn doesn’t think that’s likely to happen this year. Indeed, he believes that 2022 shares a lot of similarities with 1974, another mid-term election year when rising interest rates, high inflation, and the ongoing effects of the oil crisis, all combined to create a general sense of economic anxiety.
