  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Volatility continued this week resulting in mixed stock action but with a common pull back from the mid-week highs among the TSP stock funds. The S and I-fund finished the week with gains while the C-fund, which follows the action of the S&P 500, fell for a third straight week. The difference is the weight of the troubled tech sector the S&P 500 holds. Big tech names continue to drag down indices performances and the result is a false representation of the market as a whole. Investing in the C-fund ...

    Volume was much higher today. Momentum is falling on the S&P, but flat on the DWCPF. The 50 dma failed today on the S&P 500, but not the DWCPF.

  3. TSP Talk: The bears sense an opportunity. Bulls look for support

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Thursday and an initial attempt by the bulls to erase those losses fell short, then the selling resumed into the afternoon. A late rally helped push the indices off their lows, and more importantly, holding some of them above key support levels. The Transports came all the way back to break even on the day and closed right near their all time high, while tech took the biggest hit yesterday. The Dow, down 384-poins at the lows, close down 130.

    I said yesterday that a retest of the 50 dma was still possible and we only had to wait 1 day to get that retest (the test is still in progress). Price closed just above that key average on both charts. To this point, support is holding, but will it last?

  5. TSP Talk: Fed dovish, but investors take profits

    The Fed brought some volatility to the table as the indices were all over the place on Wednesday. After a big bounce off the recent lows, investors took some profits after the very dovish Fed meeting / policy statement. That's not unusual, but we did see some negative short-term technical hiccups on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq charts. However, if we look outside of large cap tech sector, the broader market actually did rather well. The Dow gained 37-points and S-fund, which contains most U.S. ...
