    After jumping up over 200 points this morning, the Dow has reversed course and is now in negative territory for the day.  The S&P 500 also jumped, rising above 1300 before falling back down.  Interestingly, at one point during the swing, the S&P was down more than the Dow was down.  The Dow is priced roughly 9 times higher than the S&P 500.  Given the difference in scale, it is somewhat unusual to see this happen when they move in the same direction.

    With the Democratic National Convention starting yesterday, the conversation over which candidate will be better for the economy will heat up.  Here are some stats on the Dow and presidential elections. With the exception of FDR's takeover for Herbert Hoover, it looks like "Change" seems to be less favorable to the markets than continuity when a Republican is in office.
