TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. Shutdown

    Stocks were behaving a little tentatively on Friday morning and into the early afternoon, but a late afternoon rally saw them close at their highs and new all time highs in most cases. The Dow gained 54-points with small caps leading the way. Bonds fell sharply as 10-year Treasury yields hit a 3+ year high.

  2. A pause

    We saw some red on Thursday but nothing serious considering the gains leading up the selling. It was kind of a yawner and rather than selling, it was more of a slowdown in buying. The Dow lost 98-points with smaller percentage losses in the broader S&P and Nasdaq, while the small caps lost almost a half of a percent. ...
  3. Melt Up continues

    There they go again. The Dow jumped 323-points and closed above 26,000 for the first time as the "melt up" continues. We saw gains of near 1% in many indices as the negative reversal day on Tuesday was quickly forgotten, and the dip buyers didn't want to wait another minute. ...
  4. Turnaround Tuesday?

    Stocks opened sharply higher on Tuesday with the Dow up about 280-points in the first hour of trading, before things reversed course. The damage was minor as far as the daily loss goes, but a 300-point reversal is an eye-opener as the Dow closed down 10-points. We saw more moderate losses in the broader indices, while the small caps and Transports were hit hardest, and the I-fund was helped again by a weakening dollar.

  5. The rubber band stretches as we near budget deadline

    It was another 200+ point gain for the Dow on Friday as the indices tack onto this historic rally to start the new year. Small caps lagged a bit but still posted a decent gain, while the I-fund keeps rolling along as the dollar fell to a 4-month low.
