  1. TSP Talk: Breakdown

    Stocks gapped open lower on Monday. I often say that we can't always trust Monday morning gaps, especially the ones on the downside, but yesterday's morning's selling and lack of dip buying in that first hour of trading made the sell-off look pretty serious. The fact that the losses were still fairly stiff into the close in most indices, despite the reversal, is a tell that this was not one of those gaps to dismiss. The Dow lost 510-points, well off the lows like so many indices, but the charts ...

    The DWCPF joined the S&P under the 50 dma today. Volume was very elevated. If there weren't 2 sides battling this out, I suspect the market would have fallen apart altogether. But even if it isn't falling apart, it's moving lower. The 200 dma is still further below and we may yet test it.

  3. TSP Talk: Bulls are put to the test to start the week

    Another expiration week ends with a thud as stocks tumble after a positive open on Friday.

The small caps had other ideas as we saw the S-fund end the week with a solid 2.85% gain and lost just 0.27% on Friday while the S&P and Nasdaq each lost over 1%. There was an afternoon push higher but the Dow closed down 245-points.

  5. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Volatility continued this week resulting in mixed stock action but with a common pull back from the mid-week highs among the TSP stock funds. The S and I-fund finished the week with gains while the C-fund, which follows the action of the S&P 500, fell for a third straight week. The difference is the weight of the troubled tech sector the S&P 500 holds. Big tech names continue to drag down indices performances and the result is a false representation of the market as a whole. Investing in the C-fund ...
