TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

by TommyIV on 03-25-2017 at 04:07 PM
The highly anticipated results of the healthcare vote never manifested as the republicans pulled the bill because they did not have the votes to pass it. The anticipation shook the market up early in the week but in the end stocks didn't react much to the non-vote on Friday afternoon. If anything it was positive.

Stocks kept within a tight range to start the week off as anticipation of the FOMC meeting kept traders at bay. The Fed did raise rate basis 25 points and forecast two more rate hikes this year.

Many market analysis predicted a 'sell the news' reaction to Trump's speech but alternatively market players liked what he had to say. Traders took their profits Thursday taking the indices off their highs for the week and with slight gains on Friday the S&P ended the week with a 0.7% gain.

Janet Yellen made comments that indicate a rate hike is coming soon. The jobs report

Stocks were mixed this week as we saw gains in large caps (C-fund) while small caps (S-fund) fell slightly. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up again Friday thanks to late buying in the last hour of trading to give the index its 11th consecutive day of gains. Utility stocks kept the S&P 500 in positive territory this week while financial stocks were underperforming as government bond yields dropped.

Talks of potential policies from the Trump administration, including tax cuts,
