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

  1. The beat goes on - new highs, that is

    It was a big day for stocks despite a few news events that we might have thought would have sank the market. But no -- the Dow gained 256-points and we saw gains of close to, or more than, 1% in most of the major indices. The Nasdaq lagged with just a 0.49% gain.
  2. The post-Thanksgiving exhale

    Stocks were mixed on Monday, a day where the seasonality charts suggested we could see a little breather after a Thanksgiving week rally. The Dow gained 23-points while the Nasdaq and S&P saw small losses. The small caps, I-fund, and Transports took bigger hits.
  3. This week: Seasonality vs. the Senate and the tax cuts

    Stocks had a strong Thanksgiving week although the normally positive Wednesday and Friday saw just minor gains after Tuesday's big rally stole their thunder. Over those two days the Dow lost about 32-points, the S&P gained 3-points, and the Nasdaq picked up about 27-points. Small caps posted a small gain but it was the I-fund that led as the dollar took another dive.
  4. Half day of trading today

    Stocks were mixed on Wednesday with the Dow giving back 65 of Tuesday's 160+ point gain. The large cap techs kept the pressure on and managed a small gain for the Nasdaq, but the S&P 500 and small caps posted slight losses. The I-fund led as the dollar lost 0.78% on Wednesday.
  5. A pre-holiday breakout to new highs

    Stocks were FAANG'ed again on Tuesday as the top Tech stocks pulled the rest of the market up with them. Small caps continue to bounce strongly off of its recent lows and the S&P 500 is now flirting with 2600. The Dow gained 161-points, or 0.69%. The Nasdaq led with those FAANG stocks having big days.
