  1. TSP Talk: Summer doldrums

    The bulls won the tug-o-war yesterday as they battled the bears pushing the S&P 500 above and below the break even point for most of the day before the bulls pulled out the win with a modest 10-point gain. The Dow fought off a 140-point early loss to close with a gain of 19-points but it was actually negative with less than a minute left in the day, so it was basically flat. The I fund lagged as the dollar rallied again. Bonds were up modestly.

  2. TSP Talk: Stocks pull back from recent peak

    Stocks wobbled a bit and the charts are showing some cracks after a moderate sell off on Wednesday. The Dow gave up 172-points and the losses were more severe in the broader indices, with small caps lagging and falling nearly 2%. So, they don't go up everyday.

After the bell President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act which impacts corporate taxes, among other things, but that's just old news getting finalized.

  4. TSP Talk: Bulls fight off the bears and turn early losses into a gain

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Monday morning but the dip buyers were at the ready and the fight that the bears put up early, turned into a retreat as the bulls won the battle. The Dow gained 151-points and it was a pretty good showing for the bulls considering that the dollar had a big day and actually broke above its recent down trend. That sent commodity prices lower, including the price of oil. Bonds were up as yields slid lower. The Transportation Index was down yesterday.

  5. TSP Talk: Bulls take charge as bears get nervous

    Stocks took Thursday's bearish negative reversal day - and on some charts a negative outside reversal day - even more bearish, and completely ignored that setup and rallied strongly to close at a multi-month high on Friday. The Dow gained an impressive 424-points, and the S&P 500 is now down less than 10%, which means it has cut its worst 2022 losses in half. The question is, will a 50% retracement of the losses pose any threat to the rally being a common Fibonacci retracement level? The ...
