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

  1. TSP Talk: Stocks explode because... Good question!

    Stocks exploded out of the gate on Thursday because... well, that's a good question. The PPI report came in slightly better than expected, but nothing earth shattering. Bank of America reported strong earnings, but they are not normally market movers. Yields were down, which excited the tech sector, but is there anyone on the planet that thinks yields will be lower over the next 6 months?
