  1. Bulls buy the morning sell-off on Monday, but trade still an issue

    The Sunday overnight futures were pointing to big negative open for stocks on Monday, and we got one with the Dow down 470 points at the opening bell. But that was the low tick of the day and the dip buyers had a field day for the next 5 hours or so. Things flattened out in the last hour of trading so we didn't see all of the losses recovered, but enough to create a big positive reversal day. The Dow ended the day down just 66-points, but the volatility didn't end there...

  2. The futures pulling back after a possble breakdown in the trade negotiations

    What a week for the stock market as it was up against not only earnings from some major market movers, but an FOMC policy statement, and a jobs report. We went into Friday with some losses in the major indices for the week before the Goldilocks jobs report came out and triggered a big rally, taking them out of the red for the week. The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P 500 gained 0.75%, 1.58%, and 0.96% respectively, while small caps led the way in the TSP funds with a 1.58% gain.

It seemed as though the bears were making their move this week starting Wednesday when the Fed left interest rates unchanged and seem to be staying patient yet reactive.

  5. The bears show some teeth early, but can't keep the pressure on

    Stocks took a swan dive after a mostly positive open, but found support at about noon, and the dip buyers took over from there. The indices were mostly negative by the close with the Dow down 122-points and much smaller percentage losses for the Nasdaq and S&P 500 (C-fund), but the small caps of the Russell 2000 were up nicely helping our S-fund to a slight gain, and the Transports gained back over 1% of their recent losses.
