  1. TSP Talk: A wild February comes to an end

    Friday's action was fitting for the end of the wild month that was February. The Dow lost 470-points on the day, but 300-points of that came in the final 5 to 10 minutes of trading, and the S&P 500, which was up a solid 23-points with less than 5-minutes to go in the trading day on Friday, plummeted 41 points in those final minutes to close down 0.48%.
