Stock markets are all about ‘sentiments’, and elections play a key role in shaping the sentiments. In elections, political parties with widely different political and economic agendas clash. There is always slight fear making a home in the minds of the investors if the party being elected can be positive or negative to some businesses. Even the changes in economic views and strategies of same government or even ministers can change business prospects of different segments of the economy. Furthermore, there is fear in the stock markets that economic policies being executed up till now by the ruling party may stand changed if the new government arrives at the scene. It leads to a spike in market volatility and uncertainty rules the roost during this time period. The more voters feel confused about who the clear winner will be, the more stock markets are affected by this volatility.
