  1. TSP Talk: The bulls are back, but...

    Stocks rallied back on Wednesday after another negative open, so we saw a bit of a wash out sell off, as modest as it was, and a reversal. The Dow gained 316-points on the day and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq got back Tuesday's losses, but they're still down for the week.

The Dow lost 256-points on the day, which was off the lows after a final hour push higher yesterday. Bonds bounced back yesterday, yields were down, and the dollar also rebounded some, putting ...

  5. TSP Talk: A dip in stocks as yields tick slightly higher

    Stocks pulled back on Monday with the Dow losing a modest 123-points, which was well off the lows, but we saw more serious losses in the Nasdaq and small caps as bond yields started to rally back. The market needed a rest and the question is whether any decline will be a pause to consolidate, or an outright pullback or correction to perhaps clean up some of the over extended charts.
