  1. TSP Talk: A bounce on Friday, plus TSP is shutting down soon

    We had a rare sighting of a bull in this bear market on Friday. It is remains bull hunting season so we could see them go into hiding again unless the bears need to take a break to gather more ammunition and supplies for the next next attempt to catch a horned wall hanger.

The distinction is arbitrary yet significant to investors and ...
  4. TSP Talk: A late rally saves the day

    We had some steep losses heading into the final hour of trading on Thursday but stocks bounced late to salvage a mixed and somewhat flat day, and unfortunately for the bulls, that's been about as good as it has been for them lately.

  5. TSP Talk: Another failed rally as CPI came inline with estimates

    Stocks gave up some early gains as the bearish activity continues with more selling after an initial bounce off the CPI report. The Dow gave up a triple digit gain to close down 327-points with Apple's 5% loss being a drag on most of the major indices. Bonds were up as the yield on the 10-yer Treasury fell back below 3%. Oil and the metals were up, while bitcoin continues to slide lower.
