Dow Since Election

The day Obama got elected the Dow was at 9625.

Today, the Dow is at 8000.

Since Obama was elected President, the Dow has lost 1625 points, or roughly 17%.

It's good to keep in mind the faith the market places on economic policy proposals.

Of course, the DOW went from 13000 down to 9000 under GWB, a much greater percentage drop.

It's good to keep what in mind again?
