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

  1. TSP Talk: A little bounce back

    We got a little bounce back on Thursday after the three day pullback. There was a midday scare where it looked like the rally was going to fail, but the bulls did a good job of battling right back, although the close was a little iffy. The action didn't improve the charts all that much and we probably need to see more upside follow through in the coming days or the bears may have at it again.

  5. TSP Talk: Stock rally on weak jobs report?

    After a very disappointing jobs report, the market did something that may have surprised a lot of people - it rallied. And it rallied big.
