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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. TSP Talk: A great November for stocks comes to an end

    Stocks we up on Friday erasing Wednesday's losses in the S&P 500, and in the case of the Nasdaq and small caps, just additional gains and new highs. The Dow gained 38-points so it lagged some and did not get back all of its 174-point loss from Wednesday. Bonds were up as yields fell, and the dollar fell to a multi-year low helping the I-fund add to its monster month.

    Stocks were mixed on Wednesday with the Dow and S&P 500 posting modest losses while the Nasdaq and the smalls caps were both up on the day. The Dow ended the day down 174-points.

  5. TSP Talk: Are you afraid of heights?

    Another giant day for stocks on Tuesday as the froth on top of this November rally gets thicker. The melt-up continued as the Dow gained another 455-points, pushing the index above 30,000 for the first time ever. Looking at the intraday charts it looks like no one hit the sell button all day. Of course that's what sends stocks higher, but when it happens we see extremes in many indicators showing that things have gotten too hot, and any bad news would fill the vacuum being created on the downside. ...
