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

  1. TSP Talk Market Commentary 03/31/2020

    Coming into this week, every Monday in March had been quite negative for stocks, so of course late on Friday there was a rush for the exits before the closing bell. So, Mr. Market did it again and went against the pattern and we got a big rally on Monday, although it was only about enough to take most of the indices back to Friday's highs before the sell-off.

    The market rallied vigorously on another Turnaround Tuesday. The Dow gained a record 2113-points, or 11.37%, which led the three major indices. We've seen these days before and they've turned out to be one hit wonders so far this month, so investors may be skeptical going into Wednesday. Bonds were up, and the dollar was down. There are some good signs, and maybe some bad, as we'll talk about below.
