  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks were up for the week after some mixed action following early gains Monday. The stock indices failed to produce momentum in any direction giving us a second consecutive week of sideways movement after the strong move by the bulls in early May. The ups and downs were driven by a multitude of factors this week including dovish remarks by the Fed, an ease off the possibility of a trade war with China, North Korea, and sliding U.S. Treasury bond yields.

    Stocks fell early this week as investors focused on the rise in bond yields which reached the psychologically troubling 3% for the 10-year Treasury Note Tuesday. The 3% 10-year treasury yield milestone has been a highly talked about figure this year as it hasn't been reached in four years and yields have been dancing below it for some time.
