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

  1. TSP Talk: Small caps in a league of their own

    Stocks were mixed again yesterday, but only because the invincible small caps refuse to fall. The Transportation Index was also up yesterday, but other than that the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq were down on the day, yet internally there was a lot of strength under the surface. The Dow lost 69-points, and the S&P 500 is actually down for the week, but money seems to go somewhere everyday, as cash is being treated like the plague.

  2. TSP Talk: Mixed bag in the indices

    The dollar rallied and that put some pressure on stocks on Wednesday, although the indices were fairly mixed. The Dow lost 8-points, the Transports and small caps were each down about a half of a percent, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both rallied. Bonds (F-fund) rallied off its support line, and the I-fund struggled with the dollar up on the day.

  3. TSP Talk: Bulls fight right back

    Stocks were mostly higher on Tuesday after Monday's one day pullback, but there was a sharp dip in the middle of the day that was quickly bought. The Dow, which was both up and down triple digits at different times during the day, closed at +60-points. The S&P 500 was basically flat but small caps jumped again as they continue to lead on the upside. The I-fund was up as the dollar fell, and bonds were down slightly after a successful test of the November lows.

  4. TSP Talk: Another Monday decline

    For the second Monday in a row, stocks lost ground. The losses varied quite a bit with the Dow down a modest 0.29%, small caps were flat, but the Nasdaq lost over 1.2%. Last week, after the Monday sell-off, stocks bounce back during the rest of the week, so this week starts with a similar challenge. The dollar was up again, and that is putting some pressure on stocks and prices in general. Did you see bitcoin yesterday? It went from a high near $43,000 over the weekend, to a low near $31,000, ...
  5. TSP Talk: Stimulus trumps jobs loss

    We got the December jobs report before the opening bell on Friday and it came in much lighter than estimates, yet stocks opened higher, and closer higher, with a mid-day swoon in between. As we mentioned last week, it doesn't seem to matter if the news is good or bad, the bull are finding a reason to buy. The Dow ended the day with a gain of 57-points. Small caps were up slightly, and it was the S&P 500 and large tech in the Nasdaq that led on the upside.
