133 Years of Presidents and the Stock Market: How is Trump doing?

Description: At this stage, Donald Trump’s stock market performance is the fourth best starting with first-time-round Grover Cleveland in 1885. Trump is at 537 days as of the end of August; January 20th inaugurations have only occurred since 1937. The biggest winners at the end of their presidencies are Calvin Coolidge, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Ronald Reagan (FDR comes third if counting all his terms). The rear is brought up by Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon, Grover Cleveland (second time round), and George W. Bush (Bush is the only president to have the mark close lower at the end of both four-year terms).
