  1. TSP Talk: Bulls are put to the test to start the week

    Another expiration week ends with a thud as stocks tumble after a positive open on Friday. This is a tough month for stocks historically and the bears are keeping that reputation alive as the S&P 500 closes negative for a third straight week. The small caps had other ideas as we saw the S-fund end the week with a solid 2.85% gain and lost just 0.27% on Friday while the S&P and Nasdaq each lost over 1%. There was an afternoon push higher but the Dow closed down 245-points.

  3. 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.

    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.

  5. 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.
