  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    The year ends on a high note for large caps while small caps show some weakness. The last week of the year carries light volume with it which can bring volatile and less predictable trading with a fraction of moves carrying the markets. The S&P 500 began the week with gains but had choppy behavior through the week. This includes a spike rally in the last couple hours of trading Thursday which put the index at a new all time high to end the year. Small caps have been a leader in the indices for the ...
  2. TSP Talk: Good riddance to 2020

    As this crazy year winds down, we got a quiet day of trading on Wednesday, as we'd expect this time of year. The seasonal bias and internal numbers were bullish, and volume was light as we'd expect, but there was a fade off the highs so the bears were still hanging around. The Dow gained 74-points and the small caps broke their 3 day losing stream with a strong day.

    Stocks were down yesterday with small caps taking the brunt of the selling again, although volume was light and it's tough to conclude too much from the action. The Dow ended the day with a modest loss of 68-points, with a similar percentage loss for the S&P 500. The Nasdaq took a stiffer hit and small caps saw a second 1% plus loss in as many days. Bonds were up slightly.

    Both the S&P and DWCPF were lower today. Notably, the S&P was hitting fresh all-time highs early in the trading session, but could not hold those gains. The DWCPF went lower quicker than the S&P. It was more like a bear ambush within minutes of the open. Still, the technical damage is
