TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. Stocks stall, dollar falls, and possible cracks showing

    It was a mostly negative day for stocks on Friday but once again we saw them push closer to their highs by the close showing that the dip buyers are still very much alive. The Dow, which spent most of the day in negative territory, battled back to close with a gain of 34-points while the broader indices couldn't quite turn green.

  2. Another mixed day with a Nasdaq reversal

    It was a strange day for stocks on Thursday as we saw another wide range of results depending on the index. The Dow shined with an 86-point gain but there was a nasty reversal on the Nasdaq that caught the attention of the technical analysts. The S&P was basically flat again after a late rebound, but small caps took a 0.54% loss.

  3. Quick Commenetary

    The Dow gained 97-points while the S&P was flat and small caps gave back some of Tuesday's gains. The dollar had another terrible day and that helped the I-fund again, which led on the day.

  4. Earnings and Consumer Confidence

    After some strong early earnings reports before the bell on Tuesday morning, stocks opened sharply higher pushing several indices to new highs again. The Dow gained 100-points, about 60-points off the opening high, but still a meaningful rally. The S&P added 0.29% and small caps led adding about twice that.

  5. Mixed Monday, but Google could shake things up

    It was a rather slow summer trading day on Monday with early weakness, a midday comeback, and more selling late that saw the indices close mixed. The Dow lagged losing 0.31% on the day while the Nasdaq led, the S&P was down slightly, and small caps closed with modest gains.
