  2. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Although it was a mixed day, it was a typical pre-holiday like trading day on Thursday - a slightly positive bias on below average volume. The Dow gained 20-points, the S&P 500 picked up 1, the Nasdaq was down 1, the I-fund led the way, and small caps dropped. Bonds were also down again.
