  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stock indices gapped up and traded in positive territory for the second consecutive week. Liquidity provided by the Fed has been the blood of this rally while optimism of an eventual recovery (no matter how far away) has been the heartbeat.

    Stocks produced a higher high in the comeback rally Wednesday but troubling earnings from thought to be invincible tech giants gave investors a taste of reality. Indices gave back a majority or all of the gains from the first half of the week when pressure to sell began accumulating Thursday and into Friday.
