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

  1. More mixed results

    Once again it was a mixed day on Wall Street. This time it was the Dow that was down big, and the Nasdaq led on the upside with a small gain, but it battled back from a near 1% loss near the open. The S&P 500 and small caps finished down but just modestly, while the I-fund was down after a day that the dollar rebounded from an early sell-off.

  2. Not all funds are equal

    Stocks were mixed on Friday, as has been the theme of late. The Dow gained a solid 87-points. the S&P was flat, the Nasdaq was down sharply, and the small caps and I-fund were on opposite ends of the spectrum, one down, one up.

  4. Small vs Large - Tech vs Industrials

    It was a sector picking day for the market with wildly mixed results in the various indices. The Dow led with a solid 159-point again, or +0.61%. The S&P 500 was up slightly, the Transports were flat, the Nasdaq was down slightly, and small caps were down fairly sharply.

  5. They sold the rumor - and bought the news

    Turnaround Tuesday was almost a inverse mirror image of Monday. As dogmatic as the bears were on Monday, the bulls were as committed on Tuesday. The larger industrial type stocks rebounded better than the Nasdaq and small caps, both of which only got back about half of Monday's losses. The Dow ended the day up 185-points.
