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

  1. Jobs Report November

    Employment growth slows sharply in November amid coronavirus surge

    Nonfarm payrolls increased by just 245,000 in November, well below Wall Street estimates as rising coronavirus cases coincided with a considerable slowdown in hiring.

    Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for 440,000 and the jobless rate to decrease to 6.7% from 6.9% in October.
  2. TSP Talk: Another mixed / flat day - late vaccine news

    More of the same yesterday with the indices being mixed and somewhat flat. The Dow gained 86-points and the small caps had a very good day, but the S&P ended the day with a small loss after a late sell off on some vaccine news, but the bears still don't seem to have the fortitude to fight the fight. Bonds rallied again after initial jobless claims came in lighter than expected.

  3. TSP Talk: Flat day but internals were strong

    A mostly flat day for stocks yesterday, but the bulls won the battle, pushing the indices near their highs of the day by the close. There were some stimulus talks that may have helped, but certainly nothing concrete. The Dow gained 60-points on the day and while the Russell 2000 small cap index was up, we did see a small loss in the S-fund. Bonds were down again, falling below a key support level.

  4. TSP Talk: New month. More gains. Head fake or another good month?

    Another big day for stocks after a 3-day consolidation. The Dow jumped another 185-points, that that was well off the highs, and while the rally resumed, advancing volume was less than twice that that of declining on the NYSE and the Nasdaq's volume was negative (more declining share volume than advancing), so the day wasn't quite as good as it looked.

  5. TSP Talk: A Monday with no gains?

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Monday so it was the first time since November 2nd that we didn't get a gap up open on a Monday. The bulls showed their mettle again however, and the indices bottomed early on in the trading day, and battled back to close with just modest losses. Small caps were an exception as they closed near their lows of the day as they finished out a tremendous month on a negative note. The Dow lost 272-points, and bonds rallied again.
