The political factor plays a fundamental role in the global economy. Almost all noticeable political events affect the future behavior of the stock and currency markets. One of the most important political events are elections that are held regularly in most democratic countries. The results of elections are instantly reflected on the national currency of the country and can lead to strong fluctuations in its rate (high volatility) amid low political stability in society.
