  1. TSP Talk: Another choppy day waiting for a deal

    It was a very choppy day for stocks on Wednesday as the indices alternated between gains and losses all day, with a familiar late sell off to end the day. The indices closed near their lows of the day although the losses were modest. The problem is that the charts are starting to deteriorate some, although they're not dead yet.

  5. TSP Talk: Another strong open fails

    It was another ugly negative reversal day for stocks yesterday after a strong morning rally fell apart, and the selling intensified into the close. The Dow ended the day down 411-points on concerns of Nancy Pelosi's 2-day deadline on reaching a stimulus deal before the election. So the chess game continues.
