This and that about the market, the TSP, maybe some politics, and life.

  1. Gap filled in S&P. Do we need to see a test of the lows?

    Stocks had another wild Wednesday yesterday as stocks opened sharply higher once again, but the selling started almost immediately taking a 200+ point gain in the Dow to a 300-point loss at the day's lows. There was a big afternoon rally from about 2 PM ET until 3 PM that took the Dow up 300-points off those lows and nearly into positive territory, but it started to fade again in the last hour of trading. The losses weren't terrible, but more demoralizing to the bulls who ...
  2. Falling oil prices adding to the questions for this market

    Stocks gave us a little bit of everything on Tuesday. We saw an early rally fail, but it bounced back to new intraday highs about an hour later, only to fail again. The Dow ended the day down 101-points while the broader indices were closer to flat with the S&P losing 0.15% and small caps just barely negative.

  3. Investors run for cover

    Stocks were hit hard on Monday and we saw some technical damage done to the charts in the process. The Dow lost 602-points on the day and we saw losses of up to 2% - 3% in many indices. Volume was not too bad for a day that was a holiday with the bond market closed.

    But then the question will be, did your IFT get processed using Monday's COB prices or not.

    So, if you made an IFT on Monday 11/12 can you please let us know (with certainty) that you bought or sold on ...
    Intraday Update
  5. A day of rest

    Stocks were mixed, but mostly lower on Thursday as it digested the big gains from Wednesday. The Dow managed to push into positive territory at the close, ending the day with a gain of 11-points, and while the other indices did close off their lows, they still saw some modest losses on the day. The dollar closed higher pushing bonds and the I-fund lower.
