TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

by TommyIV on 05-19-2018 at 02:33 PM
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

Stocks were up this week and produced the greatest weekly gains in the last couple months. Oil prices were up and stocks followed which is not always the case but other sectors followed the rise in energy stocks. Data published this week also suggest inflation has remained at a rate preferred by investors who believe it may slow down the rate of rates raised by the Fed. This lifted some worries from investors and gave them the confidence to put more cash into stocks.

Stocks made a full circle last week starting with some nice early gains to open on Monday morning but those highs on Monday ended up being the highs for the week.

Stocks fell early this week as investors focused on the rise in bond yields which reached the psychologically troubling 3% for the 10-year Treasury Note Tuesday. The 3% 10-year treasury yield milestone has been a highly talked about figure this year as it hasn't been reached in four years and yields have been dancing below it for some time. Stocks were able to reclaim some of the early losses in the week as yields pulled back and a number of over achieving earnings reports were released.

Stocks kicked off the week with a couple days of days of solid gains with the positive reaction to the Netflix earnings report being a main contributor to the indices' success, particularly tech, on Tuesday. Stocks lost their steam after a few earnings reports that fell short of expectations and the week peaked intraday Wednesday before giving back most of the early gains the rest of the week. Investors were spooked late in the week by a spike bond yields and lost all the gains from Tuesday and
