Presidential Election Cycle is a theory related to financial markets and the theory postulates that financial markets (for example, stock markets) exhibit weakening trends following the year of a U.S. Presidential Election. Thereafter, the market improves until the cycle repeats itself at / around the next Presidential Election.

The theory was propounded by Yale Hirsch, and until mid-1990s continued to be a rather reliable trend indicator of the financial markets of the USA and many other countries having their economies closely associated with the US economy.
