  1. TSP Talk: Tis' the season

    Stocks opened mixed on Thursday but gave way when a wave of selling was triggered after lunch. We saw modest gains in some indices become sharp losses, and by the close the Dow was down 354-points. The small caps of the Russell 2000 were up well over 1% in early trading and while they held up better than the large caps, they did lose all of those gains to close flat. The S-fund closed in between the Russell's break even day, and the S&P 500's 1.23% loss.

    It appears that price is testing support at the February peak (was resistance) on the S&P 500. The DWCPF had not established itself above the February peak for very long, so I would not call it support yet. I will say that the DWCPF held up better than the S&P today, so that's a bullish aspect

  3. TSP Talk: Earnings look good, but some sell the news reactions

The Dow gained 165-points, and of the major indices, only the Transports were down.

  5. TSP Talk: A breakout - but weak close

    Stocks opened higher on Tuesday but after a few breakouts to higher highs in some indices, we saw some fading into the close. The high flying Nasdaq did pullback but investors seemed to put that money into other indices, rather than selling outright. The Dow had a good day adding 160-points, but it was up over 300 in early trading, so it wasn't the best action. Small caps made a higher high yesterday, but also came well off the morning highs.
