    by , Today at 01:22 AM (TSP Talk Blog)

    Stocks were down sharply on Tuesday as the bulls handed over control to the bears, at least for a day, after the big rally on Monday. The Dow lost 200 of the 266-points it gained on Monday. The action was not great, obviously, but there were gaps that needed filled and we'll just have to see if that's all it was.

    Stocks traded in a fairly tight range on Friday with the bulls winning the battle as the Dow gained 34-points. It wasn't exactly a capitulation from the bears, but the S&P 500 was able to close well above the Thursday lows for a 2nd straight day. The bulls do have some more work to do, but it looks like they haven't given up quite yet. It's getting close to do or die.
