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

  1. TSP Talk: Stocks rebound from morning losses. Tech rallies after hours

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Thursday as the highly anticipated shock GDP report was finally a reality, but mostly expected, and the lows of the day were printed shortly after the opening bell. The Dow lost 226-points, while the broader indices were mixed with the Nasdaq back in the lead with a moderate gain, and modest losses in the S&P and small cap indices.

  2. TSP Talk: Market rallies early, and hold gains after Fed Policy

    Stocks rallied ahead of the FOMC meeting and policy statement yesterday, and once that statement was released, we did see some choppiness, but the bulls won out and we saw a close with the indices just off their highs. The Dow gained 160-points and yesterday it was the small caps' turn to lead the way, along with the Transportation Index, both of which gained over 2% on the day. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq both had gains over 1% so it was a broad rally.

  3. TSP Talk: Sluggish day in front of FOMC and key earnings reports

    Stocks were flat for most of the day on Tuesday, but late selling pushed the indices to their lows of the day at the close. The Dow lost 205-points and once again the Nasdaq was the high beta index as it doubled the loss of the the S&P 500. Small caps lagged the large caps and the I-fund may feel a little pressure after a rare positive day for the dollar yesterday.

  4. TSP Talk: Broad rally to start the week. Tech shines again

    Stocks opened flat to slightly lower on Monday but buyers stepped in quickly, setting a positive tone for the day, and the rally held into the close, fighting off a late morning pullback. The Dow gained 114-points, which was off the morning highs but the broader indices like the S&P, Nasdaq, and small caps, all closed strong and near their highs of the day.

  5. TSP Talk: Post earnings dip last week. Support trying to hold

    Stocks followed through on Thursday's negative reversal with another down day again on Friday. The Dow lost 182-points but more interesting is that the Nasdaq had its first 2-day losing streak since mid-May, or 49 days. Small caps got beaten up pretty good after holding up rather well during Thursday's decline. Bonds were down on Friday after 8 consecutive positive days for the BND bond ETF, and 15 of the last 18 trading days.
