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

  1. February Jobs Report

    Job creation posts blowout month in February, ADP says

    "Employment in the private sector surged by 298,000 for the month, with goods producers adding 106,000, ADP and Moody's Analytics said. Construction jobs swelled by 66,000 and manufacturing added 32,000."
  2. Flat day before jobs report

    Stocks were flat on Thursday but for the first time in a few days they rallied off their intraday lows to close strongly. The Dow gained 2-points. The indices are finding some support at key levels that must continue to hold or we could see another leg lower.
