  1. TSP Talk: Jobs report meets holiday action

    Stocks were mixed on the first trading day in July, and the first day of the third quarter. The bulls took over after a flattish open, but there was some selling late in the day to take the indices off their highs. The Dow lost 78-points while the broader indices posted modest gains.

    Price eked higher by the close. Momentum is flat. Price is also creeping toward the upper end of its current medium term range (past few weeks). Note that the 50 dma is getting very close to having a positive cross of the 200 dma on the S&P 500.

    Stocks bounced back on Monday after last week's sell-fest, which we have been assuming was a required seasonal pension fund rebalancing as we head into the new quarter. Volume was light again, also suggesting that these large pension funds may have completed, or nearly completed, their selling. The Dow gained 580-points, while the large tech stocks lagged and small caps led the TSP Funds.
