Election changes? How to choose the investor
After Trumps diagnosis, the odds of betting on Biden and vice president burns rose slightly, while trump dropped to about 36%.
CICC Securities believes that in the next two weeks, the severity of Trumps illness and the speed of recovery will be the key. If the patient is seriously ill and temporarily incapacitated (referring to British Prime Minister Johnson once entered the ICU), according to the 25th amendment of the constitution, it may be necessary to temporarily transfer the presidential power to Vice President burns and recover after recovery (since the 25th amendment came into effect in 1967, there have been only three times, one for Reagan and two times for George W. Bush) Colonoscopy temporarily transfers power). But it is more critical. However, if the patient is seriously ill and cant recover from the election day, it may affect the voters confidence in whether their physical condition can smoothly assume the functions of president, and then affect the election. After all, this time point is too close.
In more extreme cases, if it is too serious to continue to run for election, how the candidates decide will bring more variables to the general election and policy prospects.
CICC also believes that the further increase of election uncertainty may make the market continue the current volatile pattern, and investors may also take a wait-and-see attitude, and even turn to defense and risk aversion periodically.
