Without a doubt, we are about to head into an incredibly difficult and turbulent period in mankind’s history. I am not trying to be hyperbolic, and I am not trying to scare anyone. However, if you don’t see what is coming in the next couple of weeks, then quite simply, you need to take your blinders off.
The 2020 U.S. Presidential election will take place on November 3rd, which is only eleven days away at the time of writing. The outcome of this election will have an enormous impact on the most powerful and prosperous nation in the world, and thus the entire global economy will feel the rippling effect. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that market participants are scrambling to find any and every clue they can as to whether Joe Biden or President Trump will win.
Turning to the polls once again, people are highlighting how Joe Biden is ahead significantly, but is this accurate? Can the polls be trusted?
