Election 2014

Will the U.S. Stock Market Rally if the GOP Wins the Senate?

With a critical mid-term election looming Nov. 4, many investors want to know what impact the results could have on the U.S. stock market.

Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald thinks a Republican sweep of the House and Senate would probably deliver a modest U.S stock rally. In an appearance on FOX Business' "Varney & Co." show, he also warned that the GOP faces a fresh challenge that could threaten its victory.

In this video, Fitz-Gerald talks about that challenge and offers some key advice on how to deal with a rocky U.S. stock market.
