TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Rate this Entry

Stocks were up to start the week but slipped quickly ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. When we typically see a strong buying sentiment among stocks, we saw weakness this year. But the real trouble came after Thanksgiving on Friday where stocks sold off more than 2% across the TSP stock funds. The sell-off was sparked by concerns of a new variant of the covid-19 virus found in South Africa that is thought to be more contagious than other forms. This poses a real threat to the global economy that is still recovering from the original pandemic reaction.

Some think the sell-off Friday was an overreaction by a spooked market but it could brought to surface other issues in the market that have been ignored. Bonds struggled for most of the week but the F-fund gained 0.78% on Friday alone to end the week up 0.15%.




Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending November 25:





We're keeping it short this week for the holiday. See you on Monday.

Good luck and thanks for reading! We will be back here next week with another TSP Wrap Up. You can read our daily market commentary at TSP Talk - Market Commentary. If you need some help deciding what to do with your account, perhaps one of our premium services can help.
