I agree that just looking at one indicator is foolhardy. But making investment decisions based on ones political beliefs is equally foolhardy. I actually take lots of factors into consideration and I’m betting on slow choppy growth in the next 2-3 years..
I have no problem with trying to profit regardless of who is in office, but you have to be careful predicting any type of growth when the office is occupied by someone who is intentionally destroying the possibility of economic growth. And you have to be ever more vigilant if you rely on their numbers telling us that the economy is growing. The DJIA up to 14,000 has nothing to do with true economic growth and everything to do with the Fed monetizing the deb through the equities markets (not only from QE but also from the POMOs that keep taking it 100 points every time they unleash that bubble beast).
