This and that about the market, the TSP, maybe some politics, and life.

  1. Is pension rebalancing pushing indices around?

    Stocks had their worst day since the Fed's rate hike two weeks ago. After opening in positive territory, the Dow ended the day with a 111-point loss pushing further away from its hyped 20,000 level. The broader indices like the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and small caps lost closer to 1%. There's no doubt that the early momentum has been fading into the close of late. Not usually a good sign but it could also change on a dime during a holiday week.
