News and social media uncertainty
Uncertainty peaks in the 2-3 weeks before an election. And in 2020, uncertainty is higher than ever. The “uncertainty collapse” starting 2-3 weeks before the election correlates with a rally in the S&P 500 and happens when the media (and others) believe they know the likely outcome.
We know from behavioral research that uncertainty inhibits financial risk-taking behavior. Perhaps this uncertainty collapse drives the stock market rally, or at least the uncertainty is no longer keeping risk-takers out of equities.
Explore our curated insights, data and analysis around the U.S. election and the implications for markets around the world.
