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

  1. S&P clinging precariously above 200-day averages

    It was a schizophrenic type of day for stocks as the indices bounced between positive and negative territory all day. The Dow had been down about 130-points at the morning lows, then up 235 at the afternoon high, and eventually settled the day down 9-points. The Nasdaq continues to struggle, while the S&P 500 and small caps posted smaller losses.
  2. Choppiness ensues as rally fails

    Stocks tried to follow-through on Monday's rally by opening strongly on Tuesday, but the rally started to fade by early afternoon, and a late push lower sent the Dow down 345-points by the close. The indices gave back a large portion, and in some cases all, of the gains made on Monday. The Nasdaq lagged and Nvidia, one of the recent market leaders, took a hit and that seemed to be the catalyst toward the close.
  3. What tariffs?

    Stocks opened the new week with an explosive rally - something that we don't normally see after a Friday like we had with the indices closing on the lows. The Dow jumped 669-points and the oversold indices gained 2% to 3% on the day. The question going forward of course is, does the recent test of the lows mark the low for this correction?

  4. The test of the lows is here. Will it pass?

    Stocks completed an awful week on Friday with the Dow taking another 425-point hit. The week saw the S&P 500 fall nearly 6% as the quest to test the February lows is on. Tests of the prior corrections lows is common. What happens when the indices do reach those lows again is questionable. Breakdown or double bottom? Place your bets!
  5. Headlines too much for investors

    Stocks were rocked on Thursday as investors gave way to the headlines that piled up on the day. The Dow lost 724-points, or 2.93%, on the day. We also saw 2% plus losses for most of the major indices. Are we heading for that test of the February lows?
