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

  1. TSP Talk: The bears sense an opportunity. Bulls look for support

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Thursday and an initial attempt by the bulls to erase those losses fell short, then the selling resumed into the afternoon. A late rally helped push the indices off their lows, and more importantly, holding some of them above key support levels. The Transports came all the way back to break even on the day and closed right near their all time high, while tech took the biggest hit yesterday. The Dow, down 384-poins at the lows, close down 130.

  2. TSP Talk: Fed dovish, but investors take profits

    The Fed brought some volatility to the table as the indices were all over the place on Wednesday. After a big bounce off the recent lows, investors took some profits after the very dovish Fed meeting / policy statement. That's not unusual, but we did see some negative short-term technical hiccups on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq charts.

The Nasdaq held onto a strong gain, while the broader indices saw gains but also faded in afternoon trading.

    Stocks jumped out of the gate on Monday morning with a solid gain in the indices. While there was some sliding in the afternoon taking the them off their highs, the indices did hold onto a good portion of their early gains. The Dow gained 328-points, while the Nasdaq, and particularly the small caps, did very well. Not much news out there, but an overhang of vaccine optimism could be the catalyst for the strength.

  5. TSP Talk: September starts with two down weeks

    It was a mixed day on Wall Street Friday with the Dow and Transports up, the Nasdaq and small caps down, and the S&P 500 flat. Bonds were up and the dollar was down. The I fund was up sharply - partly because of a dip in the dollar, and more likely because the early gains in the U.S. market didn't disappear until after the overseas markets had already closed on Friday.
