  1. TSP Talk: Last morning to make IFT before TSP shuts down

    The market fought through some obstacles to close with solid gains on Wednesday as the Fed meeting minutes revealed a more hawkish, but more definitive Fed. The Dow gained 192-points on the day, and that's actually 4 days of gains in a row. The more volatile Nasdaq had an even bigger gain but after the bell some disappointing tech earnings stepped on those gains. Small caps led with a gain over 2% on the day. Bonds were up again, and the High Yield Corporate Bonds rallied big yesterday, which ...
  2. TSP Talk: A little shake out after Monday's rally

    Stocks tumbled early on Tuesday after SNAP's earnings warning the nigh before. We did see an afternoon rally that pushed the Dow into positive territory by the close, after being down 515-points at the lows of the day.

This time it was the large caps that outperformed, and the bigger the better as the Dow gained 2%, the S&P was close behind at +1.89%, then the Nasdaq picking up 1.6%, and then the small caps which added about 1%. The I-fund also had a good day with the dollar falling sharply. Bonds were down as yields ticked higher.

    For the second week in a row the Dow and S&P 500 ended Friday with a gain, and that hasn't happened very often in 2022. The gains were minimal and it took a major afternoon positive reversal to get there. Only the S-fund closed in the red as far as the TSP funds go, with the I-fund leading on the upside. Bonds were up nicely as well as they show some signs of trying to break their downtrend. The F and I funds were also the two funds that closed with a gain for the week, with the C-fund lagging ...
