  2. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    After finally bottoming on October 15th, stocks followed through this past week with some solid gains. We saw a combination of strong earnings reports, an oversold market, and investors who were underinvested trying to get back into stocks, and that translated into a sharp rebound off the lows.

    Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending October 24:

    TSP Weekly Wrap Ups
  3. Rally resumes, but...

    Stocks rallied sharply on Thursday as the Dow gained 217-points. Another big day but there was a little wobble toward the close as the Dow closed nearly 100-points off its high. I don't know if it's because of the possible new Ebola case that was reported, but Ebola sure seems to be in the middle of the recent volatility.

  4. Is the rally over?

    Stocks were hanging onto modest gains for most of the morning yesterday before things started to melt down. Some were pointing to the tragic shooting in Canada, but the charts were showing us where there could be some resistance, and that's about where they reversed. The Dow lost 153-points and small caps took the brunt of the selling.

  5. The rally gets serious... can it last?

    Stocks gapped open higher on Tuesday and held onto the gains throughout the day and into the close. The Dow ended the day with a 215-point gain, and the TSP stock funds all had big days.
