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

  1. TSP Talk: Mixed results again but S&P and Nasdaq shine

    Stocks were mixed on Monday with the Dow and small caps both down on the day, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were flying high. The Dow lost 56-points and the Nasdaq led with a gain of almost 1%. Bonds rallied - yields down, the dollar was flat, oil was up, gold was down.

  2. TSP Talk: Fed keeps the bulls happy

    The Economic Symposium helped keep trading emotions highs, and while you can't always trust the moves in these circumstances, the market has been relentless for long enough that we shouldn't surprised that investors took it as another reason to buy. The Dow gained 243-points, getting back Thursday's near 200-point loss, as did most of the other indices. Small caps led and had a great week, showing decent life after lagging for months. Bonds were up sharply - yields ...
  3. TSP Talk: Afghanistan and the Fed put the breaks on the rally

    Stocks pulled back on Thursday, and in most cases the charts were dealing with overhead resistance, so after a dramatic 5 day rally, it was time for a break. The Dow lost 192-points, or 0.54%, and most of the indices saw similar losses. Small caps, which had been getting hot again, was the laggard on the day, but the S-fund had been up almost 5% in the prior 4 days. Bonds were flat and the dollar was up.

  4. TSP Talk: More gains but also more late selling

    Stocks opened with relentless buying on Wednesday morning, and all of the major indices finished with modest to strong gains, but for a second day in a row we did see some selling into the close - normally considered the smart money. But we've seen a tremendous 4 or 5 day rally and a little profit taking is probably nothing to be concerned about, but it could be a tell of some short-term fatigue. The Dow ended the day up 39-points, with gains in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq of less than a quarter ...
  5. TSP Talk: New highs but timid action late for large caps

    Stocks continued their roll that started last week after Thursday's positive reversal day. The Dow was up a modest 31-points although that was quite a bit off the early triple digit morning gain. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed at new highs so in each case it only took 2 - 3 days to go from the 50-day average back to new highs. The dollar and gold were basically flat, oil rallied sharply for a second straight day, and bonds were down as yields moved higher.
