  1. Another Push Higher

    by , 03-29-2011 at 05:13 PM (Coolhand's Market Analysis)
    After yesterday's weak close it appeared that some selling pressure would be very near. And while the market did indeed open weak, the selling was brief and the rally was on after just 20 minutes below the neutral line. By 1100 EST the market settled into a choppy ascent the remainder of the day, ultimately closing near the highs of the day.

    I seriously doubt that weak open was the pullback I was looking for. There were probably too many others looking for a decline in the very short ...

It shouldn't last more than a couple of days or so, but it could be just scary enough to chase some weak hands back to the sidelines. This scenario seems to make sense given the surprising upside this market had recently, and one which left a lot of ...

  4. TSP and IRA Trading Limits

    by , 03-28-2011 at 12:08 PM (TSP Talk Blog)
    By now, most of us know all about the trading limits in the Thrift Savings Plan. Just in case, here is a quick reminder:

    In the TSP we get 2 Interfund Transfers (IFT) per month. After you've made 2 IFT's you can still move money into the G-fund, all at once or in small increments, as long as the IFT does not increase the allocation percentage of any other fund other than the G-fund.
