October 12th, the Consumer Sentiment was released at it’s highest level since September 2007. This spike hit levels not seen before the recession started.
Friday at 9:55am a new Consumer Sentiment report will be released telling us what consumers are thinking about economic conditions.
I personally think we could see a large drop in Consumer Sentiment next month because of President Obama being re-elected. The economy is on a rocky road, possibly heading to the Fiscal Cliff. Quantitative Easing along with a combined $500+ billion in spending cuts and tax increases (possibly begging in January), are not projecting a positive economic forecast.
If there is not a deal reached that would stop the spending cuts and tax increases from coming, we could possibly see a market panic towards the end of this year bring a lot of volatility to the Forex Market.

With this said, I believe that millions of American Citizens feel the same. Will Obama avoid the fiscal cliff? We could find out sooner than expected.
