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

  1. The bulls hold off the bears for a day

    Although the final numbers may not indicate it, it was another wild day on Wall Street on Thursday. The bulls did have a small victory with the Dow gaining 100-points on the day, but by comparison, it certainly did not getting back much of the 800-points it had lost on Wednesday. The broader indices performed even less impressively with the S&P gaining just 0.25% while small caps and the Nasdaq closed slightly in the red.

  2. Yield curve inversion nerves

    The wild swings continue after yesterday's 800-point drubbing in the Dow, reversing and doubling the loss of Monday's 400-point gain.

  5. Investors depending on the headlines right now

    Stocks opened on the downside Friday morning, sank to almost panicky levels by late morning, but bounced back and nearly moved into positive territory before a very late - get me out before the weekend - selloff in the final few minutes of trading. The Dow ended the day down 91-points with stiffer losses in the Nasdaq and small cap indices which both lost about 1% on the day.
