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

  1. TSP Talk: Typical holiday action so far

    Several economic reports came out on Wednesday morning and stocks were not looking good when the opening bell rang, but we did see some typical light volume bullish holiday trading afterward and the indices moved up for most of the day and closed at the highs of the day. The Dow closed off the lows but still ended the day with a small loss, but most of the broader indices did well. Small caps led, bonds ...
  2. TSP Talk: Turnaround Tuesday made an attempt

Bonds fell as yields rallied, and the dollar has been unstoppable ...

The large tech stocks of the Nasdaq continue to defy gravity while the broader indices, particularly the small caps, have been pulling back and consolidating their big October gains. The Dow lost 269-points and only 7 of the 30 Dow stocks closed positive on the day. Bonds were ...
  5. TSP Talk: Small caps lag while S&P makes a new high

    Despite the Dow slipping 60-points, looking at the broader S&P 500 and Nasdaq returns below, it looks like a very solid day for stocks. Not so much, but if we're being paid by the return of the entirety of the indices and not by the individual stocks in them, does it matter if internally the market is weakening before our eyes? Yesterday the initial jobless claims report came in ...
