  1. TSP Talk: Poor economic data equals... rally?

    The market was greeted with a series of weaker than expected economic data on Thursday before the bell, so of course stocks... rallied. It's all about the Fed, I guess. Keeping them from raising interest rates and / more tapering their bond buying is what the market is feeding off, and weak data will do that. The Dow gained 154-points while small caps led as the love / hate relationship between investors and small caps continued. The dollar was down sending commodities ...
  2. TSP Talk: Mixed results after FOMC meeting

    Stocks were mixed yet again, and of course the Fed shook things up after their policy statement announcement. The Dow was down 128-points, the S&P 500 was flat, the Nasdaq rallied, as did the small caps.

  5. TSP Talk: New highs with internal weakness?

    Stocks started the week in some trouble, but somebody flipped a switch on Turnaround Tuesday, and for the big three indices, Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the week, including a big rally on Friday that sent them to new highs. The small caps also had a big week but it was little more volatile with one big loss on Thursday after the weak jobless claims report. Bonds were down - yields up.
