  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks continued their volatile action throughout the week as indices are recovering from the recent sell-off. After a slow start Monday, stocks built some of their best gains in months mid-week. Those gains were all erased Thursday and by the close on Friday we were back where we started for the week in the S&P 500. Small caps underperformed large caps as the early gains in the S-fund turned into losses.

    Bonds were also down for the week and the F-fund lagged the other TSP funds with ...
  2. The range is wide right now

    Wednesday morning was certainly testing the valor of the bulls as stocks opened lower and within about 30 minutes the Dow was down 300-points.

So far it has been contained within the range that we've been talking about since last Thursday's big decline, and it continues to work through the process of either creating a bottom, or starting another leg lower.

  5. Choppy action to start the week. Small caps up, big caps down

    Stocks spent the day looking for a direction as the action was quite choppy. Unfortunately for those in the stock funds, the Dow and S&P closed down and near the lows of the day, but small caps held onto a solid gain, which is quite a change from recent action. The Dow lost a modest 89-points, but that was nearly 250-points off the highs, while the small caps gained a respectable 0.24%, although that was barely noticeable on its volatile ...
