  1. TSP Talk: Small caps in a league of their own

    Stocks were mixed again yesterday, but only because the invincible small caps refuse to fall. The Transportation Index was also up yesterday, but other than that the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq were down on the day, yet internally there was a lot of strength under the surface.

  5. TSP Talk: Bulls fight right back

    Stocks were mostly higher on Tuesday after Monday's one day pullback, but there was a sharp dip in the middle of the day that was quickly bought. The Dow, which was both up and down triple digits at different times during the day, closed at +60-points. The S&P 500 was basically flat but small caps jumped again as they continue to lead on the upside. The I-fund was up as the dollar fell, and bonds were down slightly after a successful test of the November lows.
