  1. TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

    Stocks had their best week since early July all the while the S&P 500 produced a new all time high every day. August kept to its character and stretched prices ever higher. Both the C and S-fund have more than 7% for August with just one day left. Bears who argued that a double top would be the down fall of the S&P 500's rally were left with little much to say other than the market is trading unreasonably.

    U.S. stock indices were pushed higher on the shoulders of technology giants. The final of the big tech names reported earnings this week and news was not sold.

Data of record breaking economic contraction in the second quarter was also overshadowed by the tech earnings success. ...
