  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Returns were mixed this week among all the TSP funds. The C-fund, which follows the S&P 500 index, had its best week since August while the small cap S-fund was flat for the week and the foreign market I-fund was down more than a quarter percent. However the greatest loss for the TSP funds came from the F-fund. Investors are exiting bonds even with a deal made to avoid payment default by the government until December. The volatile action continued coming into this week but leveled off by Friday. ...
  2. TSP Talk: Great morning for stocks - afternoon weakness

    Stocks saw strong gains on Thursday morning but a weak afternoon of trading, and close, kept investors on their toes. Small caps led on the upside but all of the indices closed well of their highs. Bonds were down as yields rallied. The dollar was flat after recovering from early losses.

  3. TSP Talk: The bulls won Wednesday's choppy battle

    Stocks got a tremendous positive reversal yesterday although the S&P 500 remains pinned in a trading range between 4275 and 4375, and we seem to trade almost in that entire range every day.

Oil and natural gas pulled back sharply after their recent big rallies. Gold and silver were up despite ...
  4. TSP Talk: Stocks choping around looking for direction

    Stocks bounced back on Tuesday as the choppy action near the recent lows continued. There was some late selling so you can tell there isn't as much enthusiasm to buy the dips as we've seen in recent months, but support is still trying to hold. There are several dark clouds overhead with the debt ceiling deadline approaching, spending bill negotiations that are going nowhere fast, earnings warnings season is here, inflation concerns, possible rate hikes on the horizon, and the GDP keeps ...
  5. TSP Talk: The bears take back Friday's gains

    Stocks began the new week with a swan dive and quickly gave up Friday's big gains. Despite the futures being relatively flat leading up to the open on Monday, there was a lot of selling once the opening bell rang. The selling was swift and there was dearth of buyers which kept the indices pinned close to those lows for most of the day. Tech stocks took the brunt of the selling as inflationary concerns permeated trading. The Dow lost 324-points, yields were up, the dollar was down, and that helped ...
