TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up
by, 02-18-2017 at 04:17 PM (996 Views)
Stocks were up this week as the bulls were persuaded with strong economic data and faith in new upcoming tax policy to spark economic growth. Though we've been getting use to gains in stocks the past few months, this week we saw an acceleration in those gains. Traders following the momentum have been successful but others fear this relentless upside gives less support when the indices do finally decide to pull back.
All the TSP funds were up this week with the exception on the 0.01% loss in the F-fund. The C-fund led the week with a 1.6% gain.
Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending February 17th:
The SPY (S&P 500 / C-fund) continued to rise after poking above rising resistance the previous week. We may see the index come back and test the top of that rising resistance so establish credible support. The C-fund led the TSP funds for the week with a 1.6% gain.
The Dow Completion Index (S-fund) also remained above resistance it broke above the week before but did not have the momentum we saw in the SPY. The index floated in values just above the resistance of the trading channel below. The S-fund as up 0.97% for the week.
EFA (EAFE Index / I-fund) remains within a rising trading channel and made its way to the middle of the trading channel on Friday. The I-fund was up 0.86% for the week.
AGG (Bonds / F-fund) found support in an old resistant trend line this week. Bonds are now heading toward the 200-day EMA which held as resistance earlier this month. The F-fund was down just 0.01% for the week.
