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

  1. Downside continues as a strong economy meets uncharted situations

    The new week started the same as last week ended. We saw modest losses in the Dow (-144-points) and S&P 500 (-0.58%), and the Nasdaq took another 1.4% hit. Small caps fell in between the two with a loss of about 0.85%. The I-fund held up with the help of a dip in the dollar.

  2. FAANG getting flaky

    Despite being a negative day across the board on Friday, there were certainly varying degrees of weakness in the indices - something we have been seeing a lot lately.

Fast forward an hour and the Dow closed with a gain 172-points. The trade war took a positive turn and what looked like decent day for stocks, turned into a big day. Small caps, which aren't as impacted by tariffs, lagged a bit but were still up modestly.

  5. Stocks gap up Tuesday, then go their own way

    Google's earnings set the tone for Tuesday's open but it turned into a turnaround Tuesday depending on the index, so that's a bit of a red flag for the short-term. The Dow gained an impressive 198-points on the day, closing just off the day's highs, but it was the broader market indices that rolled over after the strong open.
