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

  1. Post holiday sell-off flirting with Feb. lows

    The market pulled an April Fool's prank on us by rallying strongly leading up to the the new month, then tanking once everyone felt a little more comfortable. The Dow lost 459-points on the day, and it was a deep sea of red for all of the indices. If there was a bright side, the Dow closed about 300-points above its low, and the S&P, which lost 59-points on the day, closed about 28-points off its intraday low.
