Market down 2.3%, no intraday bottom in sight yet.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. investors hit trading floors Wednesday morning with the same president and the same problems in gridlocked Washington and expected the same solution as always to a looming budget crisis that threatens the economy: punt and deal with it later.

President Barack Obama beat back Republican challenger Mitt Romney to win a second term, but he will still have to contend with a Republican-controlled House of Representatives that could make forging a compromise on pressing issues like the coming "fiscal cliff" difficult.

That so-called cliff is actually a $600 billion package of automatic tax increases and spending cuts, scheduled to take effect at the end of 2012, that could severely strain economic growth.
It is expected to be the top priority of the "lame-duck" Congress that will convene soon, though few hope for anything resembling a permanent solution to the problem.

"The best thing that could have happened is what happened," said Robert Manning, chief executive of MFS Investment Management in Boston. "I don't think there will be any grand bargain at all, just small fixes that will kick the can down the road."

Markets reacted negatively early Wednesday, as many feared they might do, with the S&P 500 immediately dropping 1.4 percent at the open. The index has rallied 67 percent since Obama took office - one of the most impressive runs ever for stocks under a single president.

"The recent pre-election rally has reflected Wall Street predictions of an Obama victory, but positive sentiment will move to worries about the fiscal cliff and the ongoing euro zone debt crisis, resulting in market choppiness over the near term," said Martin Sass, chief executive of New York money manager MD Sass.

If both parties cant agree on any compromises for the fiscal cliff this will only look like a speed bump.

I think this has more to do with what we are facing in our future regarding fiscal issues than the results of the election. Although its possible that wall street was hoping there would be a shakeup and that one party or the other would get more power. I think the fact that things remain unchanged worries them more than Obama being re-elected.

well yeah.

That's basically what the quoted text said. Fiscal cliff being the primary concern at this point.

i'm trolling anyway but daily market fluctuations don't mean shiat. and if we acknowledge the markets are artificially inflated anyway then we don't need to be wringing our hands about a 2% drop... especially since we know that the markets traditionally rally leading up to an election anyway.

Well, we did break through another level of technical support (1396) despite the fed having recently announced QEinfinity, so you have to at least admit it's a bit troubling.

Btw, pepsico (owners of Doritos) is doing relatively ok today. Might that have something to do with how a certain vote in Colorado turned out?

Pepsi also spun off/is heavily invested in the group that owns taco bell/pizza hut.
