It only seems fitting given the upcoming US election to do some fact checking about the stock market. The following are some bullet points about what we know to be true:

• The stock market goes up more often than it goes down

• The stock market goes up overnight and down during the day

• Missing the worst days matters more than missing the best days

• The market grinds higher and sells off sharply, i.e. risk happens fast

• The best way to profit from a falling stock market
