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

  1. Crash?

    Stocks continued their sell-off on Monday with the Dow losing another 1175-points, on top of Friday's 666. I know it has been a while since we've seen anything like this, but the bigger the rallies are, particularly when they go straight up, the harder they tend to fall. The Dow was down a whopping 1600 points at the lows on Monday which was the largest intraday loss ever for the Dow, but percentage-wise it wasn't close to a record. Still, that was alarming.
