    “When a bull market has hit a first year anniversary as this one did last October, its almost always gets a second. First years Presidential election years a positive 83% history with 11% average returns. When the second year of the president’s term has been negative like 2022 was, the fourth year, like this year, has been positive every single time no exceptions since the bottom of the Great Depression in 1932. The bull market is intact” said Ken Fisher, founder Fisher Investments during an interview with FOX Business’ Charles Payne.
