    Yesterday was a rather boring day with a minor hiccup in the indices. That is just what the bulls would want - a low volume dip that the bears could not jump on, despite some concerning news out of Europe. The Dow lost 17-points on the day.

  2. Modest Dip

    The underlying market strength continues as sellers were unable to do much damage today. This in spite of one of the lowest volume days of the past decade. Volume on the NYSE was under 700 million shares traded. With such low volume and little price movement it's easy to conclude that the downside is still limited. At least for the moment.

    There was very little news today, so I'll go right to the charts this evening.

  4. Too Late to Buy?

    I didn't really realize it till today, but looking at the top tier of the tracker the Top 4 are separated by just 0.69%. And in fourth place is the 7-Sentinels. And the 7-Sentinels shares fourth place with exactly 50 other TSPers. Behind that group you can go all the way down to number 96 and still see folks with returns in double digits. This group is kicking some major booty and there are many more even below that level that are sporting some very impressive gains too.
