TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. Negative reversal

    Stocks were flat to mostly lower yesterday, but it was a little worse than that since the Dow, down 27-points, gave back an early 200 point gain. And it took a very late move higher to keep it from being down 100-points. After leading on the upside on Monday, the small caps and Dow Transportation Index were hit hard on Tuesday, and it may get worse for the Transports today.

  2. Follow-through after Friday's new 2019 high

    Stocks were up yesterday with the Dow adding 65-points which was the high of the day. We did see a late morning sharp sell-off that took the indices into negative territory, but the dip buyers showed up and slowing moved the indices higher with a late move up near the close. The Transports and small caps led after lagging most of last week.

  3. Breakout - or fake out?

    Stocks rallied on Friday, a quadruple witching expiration day, pumping up trading volume dramatically as it typically does. The Dow gained 139-points but it, and the other indices, drifted lower after peaking in early afternoon trading. We saw some key resistance taken out on the S&P 500 as it closed above that 2815 level that we have been talking about, but we did see some negative reversals on the charts by the close.

  4. 2815 on S&P 500 still holding

    Stocks were down early but battled back and ended the day rather flat and mixed with the Dow picking up 7-points, the S&P 500 slipping 2, and the Nasdaq was down 12. Small caps lagged a bit as we saw yields moving up (bonds down), and the dollar rebounded adding a little pressure to the I-fund.

  5. Trump grounds Boeing and stops S&P at key level

    Stocks opened higher on Wednesday and quietly built on the gains until we had some big numbers and the S&P 500 was pushing above some serious resistance. That's about when President Trump announced the grounding of Boeing's 737 and we saw some selling and a pull back into the close. Still, the Dow was able to gain 148-points on the day and Boeing, which was down hard again after the announcement, rallied back to close slightly higher on the day.
