We just had one of the most if not the most memorable election in history. The Dow Jones had a decent swing overnight, roughly 900-points (5%) on the back of Trump winning the election.

With the rise of social media, and up to the minute news, the future events will be sensationalized a lot more than they should be. In the short term, anything can happen, over the long term the odds are on your side.
