  2. Flat


    Yesterday was one of the flattest days we have seen in a long while as every TSP fund was up or down less than 0.1%. The Dow gained 7-points, the S&P 500 was up less than 1-point, and the Nasdaq shed less than 5.

  3. Stocks, yields, oil up


    Stocks rallied for a third straight day yesterday as the Dow picked up 51-points. But for a second straight day some late selling took away about half its early gains.

  4. Was that a reversal?


    Stocks followed through yesterday, on Friday's big 200+ point rally in the Dow, with a modest gain - the first positive Monday for the Dow in 10 weeks. But the close was less than exciting as we saw some profit taking and possibly a reversal day.

  5. Big rally up to resistance


    The stock index futures were already up strongly on Friday morning before the jobs report was even released, but things went into overdrive after the report, and the gains held throughout the day and the Dow gained 217-points.
