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

  1. TSP Talk: Nasty negative reversal day at the Double Top

    The S&P 500 came within 5-points of the February high yesterday, and the market was sailing along for what was looking like an eighth straight positive day for the S&P and Dow, but things changed in a hurry, and the double top theory poked its head up for all investors are traders to see yesterday. The Dow lost a modest 105-points, but that was a 470 point swan dive off the highs. The Nasdaq lagged badly again, while the small caps gave up a big early gain.

  2. TSP Talk: Stocks bounce back to test the highs again

    It was a mixed day on Wall Street Friday after a better than expected jobs report. The indices spent most of the day in negative territory but a late rally pushed the Dow and S&P 500 into positive territory, while the Nasdaq and the small caps traded places from Thursday's action when the Nasdaq rallied and small caps were down.
