  1. TSP Talk - Double top or breakout?

    Another excellent day for the TSP funds on Friday, whether stocks or bonds, and the S-fund had another one of those returns that would be respectable for a full month -- in one day. The question is whether this is what they call a "blow off top", and a breakout leading to another leg higher? The dollar and yields cooperated by falling lower helping the situation.

  2. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap-Up - The Herd Shifts Toward the G-fund

    The C-fund's weekly winning streak was extended to a fifth week, but it was the dominant performance by the S-fund that stole the show. A rally across the stock market led the C and I-funds to respectable sub 1% gains, meanwhile that same rally propelled the S-fund to a weekly gain of over 3.5%.

    Stocks were mixed yesterday but a late surge of high volume trading in the final minutes turned the S&P 500 from negative to positive as end of month window dressing took over.

  5. TSP Talk - November window dressing or profit taking?

    More quiet action on Wednesday although there was a little more volatility after stocks open sharply higher, but faded throughout the day to close flat, but mixed.
