TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

by TommyIV on 06-16-2018 at 03:49 PM
A lot went on last week for the market and each index reacted in its own way. Large caps stalled but weren't sold, small caps were up as usual, while bonds recovered from poor technical positioning. The associated TSP funds were all in the green for the week but at different degrees. Only the I-fund found itself in negative territory as the European Central Bank was unable to impress investors with their inaction on interest rates.

The Federal Open Market Committee raised interest

This week an end came to the sideways movement of stocks that had endured since mid-May. Buying from the celebrated jobs report the previous Friday carried into Monday to put stocks into positive territory where the would remain for the week. Stocks rallied again Wednesday setting the highs for the week where the would eventually close at on Friday. The buying came with no real ease to the usual troubles. Trade war issues were still in the news among other potential negative catalysts. Buyers were

Each day of this short holiday week contained its own catalyst but neither the good news or bad news of the day could carry over to the next. The market fell early this week following international stocks due to political drama in Italy, the third largest economy in Europe. Investors suffered from short-term memory loss and stocks rallied the very next day as if there was no problem at all. Sentiment shifted again

Stocks were up for the week after some mixed action following early gains Monday. The stock indices failed to produce momentum in any direction giving us a second consecutive week of sideways movement after the strong move by the bulls in early May. The ups and downs were driven by a multitude of factors this week including dovish remarks by the Fed, an ease off the possibility of a trade war with China, North Korea, and sliding U.S. Treasury bond yields. Whether good or bad, nothing seemed to

Stocks were mixed this week with small caps (S-fund) outperforming with modest gains while large caps (C-fund) pulled back slightly for the week. There was no obvious catalyst to provoke traders this week so the action was more sideways and old worries of a rising dollar, rising yields, rising oil, geopolitical issues, and trade war problems made the news to suggest reason behind the mixed moves. Stocks had just come off a strong week that put them into more of a technical advantage to keep traders
