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

  1. A bounce back and financials pass test

    Stocks rebounded moderately on Thursday stemming the bleeding for at least a day in most of the indices. The Dow gained 98-points but it was quite a wide trading range again being up as much as 190-points about an hour before the close, and down as much as 120 near the open. The Nasdaq and S&P led, while the Transports lagged with a modest loss, but a big positive reversal.

  2. Big negative reversal moves indicies to multi-week lows

    Stocks started the day as if the bulls were ready to put in the bottom on the recent pullback. Dow was up 286 at the early highs before things turned around and headed south.

    Stocks opened slightly higher on Tuesday, rallied modestly into mid-afternoon, and finally faded as we neared the close. The Dow gained 30-points on the day but it gave back an earlier triple digit gain with that weak close. The small caps outperformed with the Russell 2000 Index gaining 0.66% and our S-fund small/mid-cap fund gaining just under a half of a percent.

    Stocks were hit hard on Monday after more run ins, and new obstacles, with the Chinese when it comes to trade and tech investing. The Dow, down 496-points at the lows, closed strongly and ended the day down 328. The Transportation Index, small caps, and technology stocks were the laggards.

  5. Index rebalancing makes stocks jumpy on Friday

    Stocks were mixed on Friday with a bit of a role reversal for the indices as the Dow led on the upside with a 119-point gain, while the recent leaders, the Nasdaq and the small caps, lagged. There was some late selling that pushed the indices to their lows of the day, which is usually a short-term technical negative, but it was an "inside day" and there was some index rebalancing on Friday so the action may have seemed a little more dramatic than it really was.
