With only 11 days until the election, many of us are wondering what we should be doing when it comes to our investments?

Should we pull out our money now?

Should we wait until after the election to see what happens?

What if we don't know who the president is on November 3rd?

What about other uncertainties that could have an effect on my investment portfolio?

Inside the episode I am going to break down...

Investing With Uncertainty?

Sure, there will be volatility when there is uncertainty in the markets. But how should we manage this and what have we learned from the past during an election year?

Should I wait until after the election to invest?

I am going to show you 22 different election cycles and let you make the decision based on the past century when it comes to investing before, during and after an election.

What If Democrat vs Republican President?

Should you cash out of the stock market?

But what do the GREATS say?

Why not take advice from some of the greatest investors of all time? Let's see what Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger and Peter Lynch have to say about investing during an election cycle.
