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

  1. TSP Talk: Flags giving mixed signals

    I did watch the morning action yesterday up until about the TSP deadline, but then I was on the road for 5+ hours. However I did see that the indices barely moved from the time I left my office at around noon until I got back online to check out the charts after the close. So it was a mixed, kind of quiet Tuesday after Monday's selloff. There was no rebound or bounce, but no tack on selling either and the charts are telling an interesting story of a market that may have an excuse to go either ...
  2. TSP Talk: Protests in China starting to impact the market

    The seasonality chart did its job yesterday as it suggested weakness on the Monday after a positive Thanksgiving week of trading.

  5. TSP Talk: The pre-holiday action gets bullish

    Stocks opened higher on Tuesday, and in typical holiday week fashion, the bears weren't really around to put any pressure on the rising prices. That could change today but yesterday the indices tacked on more than 1% almost across the board. One hiccup was the market leading Dow Transportation Index which closed well of its highs of the day, although it did hold onto a 0.27% gain. Bonds were up as yields and the dollar slipped lower.
