  1. RevShark's Thanksgiving Story

    My Story of Thanks

    I never imagined that going completely deaf and losing everything I owned would turn out to be the best things that ever happened to me. What seemed like a great tragedy that would lead to empty and joyless life ended up making me far more successful and happier than I ever imagined.

    For the past seventeen years I have written a column at this time of Thanksgiving to tell my story and to offer hope for those that are dealing with struggles and difficulties ...
  2. No relief yet for this holiday week

    Stocks took another one on the chin on Tuesday, making things tough for the bulls during a holiday week where many expected a little positive push from behind.

The returns were mixed however with the C and S-fund posting minor gains while tech and the Nasdaq lagged on some disappointing earnings, but the Dow gained a respectable 124-points.

  5. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks produced their first week of losses in November after selling off for three consecutive days to start the week. Buyers showed up late to the party but two days of gains Thursday and Friday took back nearly half of the losses that had come by Wednesday's close. News about ongoing trade negotiations with China along with poor economic data from October gave traders catalysts to make moves.
