  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks prices moved directionless through the week until sellers stepped aside mid-Thursday to the close on Friday resulting in more than 1% gains for U.S. stocks. The bears failed to gain any real momentum when the opportunity presented itself. Dip buyers were at work this week shutting down any pull-back keeping prices afloat. Stocks finished the week at their highs with some credit given to more news of progress on trade deals with China.

The trade negotiations have gone on long enough that its likely that the deal has already been priced in; attention this week was back on the concerns that had traders retreating in late 2018.

    A surge in the later half of Friday solidified gains in large and small caps for the week that headed into Friday in negative territory. The action was choppy for stocks this week as trade and interest rates remain in a wait and see stage. Jerome Powell spoke this week but did not say anything that wasn't already said but the main consensus is the Fed will remain patient. Tariffs on Chinese goods scheduled to go into effect this week were postponed by the Trump Administration Wednesday. This is ...
