LOS ANGELES, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- September is a month often associated with major market corrections. Every second election year beginning in 2000, the market has demonstrated extreme volatility in September which led to major economic downturns. Financial analysts are currently tracking market conditions which could lead to a worse correction than in September 2000 - the year of the contentious election between Gore and Bush that saw $5 trillion vaporized by the dotcom crash - and September 2008 - the year of the monumental Obama McCain election which preceded the U.S. housing collapse and a $15 trillion loss in global markets.
September 2016 has Americans witnessing one of the most bizarre and polarizing elections in modern history and an imminent rate hike by the Fed. Driven by historical trends during recent election years and the fact that the Fed's latest rate hike sent the Dow plummeting from 17,500 to 15,080, analysts predict that stocks will plunge below 15,000 from their record high of 18,450. Investors who have placed a portion of their life savings in the stock market should put analyst predictions into perspective: a 15 percent plunge in the stock market equates to losing five years of income.
Economic indicators are signaling the type of historical market corrections we saw back in September 2000 and September 2008. Given current market conditions with negative yields starving investors, precious metals are the only effective investment hedge. The Huffington Post recently noted that "over the last six to twelve months, a stunning array of billionaires, funds and institutions have come out in favor of gold ownership."

After hitting $1,900 an ounce in 2011, gold shed 45% of its value as the U.S. economy improved, the U.S. dollar strengthened, and the Federal Reserve teased at, and finally began, raising its benchmark federal funds rate.
