TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. Sell in May, or is this another buying opportunity?

    Stocks opened higher on Monday, but like Friday the highs were made in those first moments of trading. Up 187 at the morning high, the Dow closed down 148-points on the day, so it took a 335-point haircut after the open. Most of the major indices lost less than 1%, but the Transports shed 1.2%. The I-fund held onto some gains but mostly because of the timing of the losses in the U.S. stocks.
