  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Pressure was put on stocks the first half of the week with a string of weak opens but dip buyers and a rally Thursday kept the damage to a minimum. Dip buyers were there at every opportunity cushioning the bears attempt to turn this market around. The market rallied Thursday after good earnings reports and a tax bill passed by the House of Representatives that cut corporate taxes. The rally pressed stocks into positive territory for the week but some of the gains were sold off Friday to drop large ...
  2. What pullback? Earnings and Tax Plan lift stocks

    Stocks rebounded on Thursday erasing the losses of the prior two days.

The I-fund held up as the dollar slid 0.7% on the day.

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Monday but as has been the case for months now, the bulls swooped in and bought the dip and we saw mostly gains, albeit slight, into the close. The Dow gained 17-points and we continue to be in a market that refuses to sell-off with any authority, and any attempts at it are quickly reversed. Volatility is trying to creep in, but it can't hold.
