  1. TSP Talk - Nvidia did its job, but the market failed to respond

    After gapping up at the opening bell on Thursday after Nvidia's earnings beat, the market had to deal with some hot inflation data that is not normally influential, and that sent yields spiking higher and the entire day's complexion changed.
