  1. TSP Talk: Growth stocks taking a hit

    After Monday's largest one day gain since June to start the month, we've now seen the worst two day stretch for stocks in six months. The Dow spent most of the day in positive territory but succumbed to the selling pressure late to end the day down 121-points. Once again the broader indices saw he larger losses with the Nasdaq and small caps plummeting more than 2%. The Transports actually gained 0.66% on the day, while bonds were down as yields crept up again.

    Not much to say about the charts. Price is in a range now between rising support and overhead resistance. I tend to think the action favors the bulls beyond the short term; mainly because it is a bull market and the bears have not been able to do more than moderate

  5. TSP Talk: March comes in like a ... Bull

    New month, new direction. All the fears of rising yields seemed to go by the wayside once we got into March, and the same pattern that ended January and started February manifests again to end February and start March. The Dow gained 603-points and it looked like just about every sector took advantage of the rally. Small caps (S-fund) and the Nasdaq continue to walk hand in hand, as both gained 3% on the day. Bonds also rallied.
