It’s always difficult to predict how Wall Street will react to political changes. And experts say the expected Republican victory in congressional elections next week could augur mixed results for financial markets, CNBC reports.

"It'll be positive in the short term, but in the long term it could have a negative effect. The Republicans will do everything in their power to stop excessive spending, and that means more austerity on the way. That could mean the market will have to take a different approach."
