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

  1. Will dip buyers show up after two down days?

    Stocks fell sharply for a second day on Tuesday, with the Dow dropping 363-points making it 540-points in two days. It sounds like a lot but the broader indices were only down around 1%. Volume was slightly higher than normal, but nothing that indicated panic selling. The market has been able to shake off two day declines fairly easily over the last year. Now if we get a third day, that may change attitudes, but for now, meh. ...
  2. A rare sell-off

    Stocks closed down on the day yesterday with some late selling for the first time in a while. The Dow lost 177-points, which was about the lows of the day. The losses were modest (0.5% to 0.6%) but it's barely a blip on the radar compared to recent gains. ...

If we take a glass half empty look, the Dow was up 260-points at one point on Thursday so it gave back quite a bit, and the broader indices were basically flat on the day, while the market leading Transports lost about 1.5% for a second straight day. ...
  5. Volatility is picking up

    The Dow was up nearly 200-points early on Wednesday but reversed course and was down over 100-points by early afternoon. The dip buyers were doing what they do, and bought the dip and the Dow closed the day up a respectable 43-points. The other indices bounced back as well but they couldn't move back into positive territory and we saw slight to sharply lower prices in many indices. ...
