    Where’s the breakout?

    The market action resembled that of an EKG chart last week as we saw a lot of up and down action. Unfortunately Friday’s triple digit loss in the Dow took most major indices into the red for the week.

    For the TSP, the C-fund slipped 0.11% for the week. The S-fund held onto a 0.19% gain, and the I-fund lost 1.86% as the strength in the dollar really hurt this fund. Bonds (F-fund)

  2. Support Holds

    The bull market remains intact, but market dynamics have changed dramatically since the end of April. We have a dollar that's in rally mode, which has translated into weakness in commodities. And nerves are probably getting frayed as the market gyrates in response to huge dislocations in metals and energy. But support held today for the S&P 500.

    The market began the day modestly positive, but that didn't last too long as it chopped into negative territory after the first minutes of ...

  5. Liquidity Continues to Support Market

    After yesterday's sell off, I was fairly certain the market would probably see more selling pressure in short order, and we got it. But it didn't last the entire trading day. The lows came early on and by the close the broader market managed moderate gains.

    The dollar fell modestly, while oil prices hit an intra-day low of $95.25 per barrel, but rallied to close up 0.8% at $98.97 per barrel.
