TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. The rally takes a day off

    Stocks were off sharply to start the holiday shortened week, and although we did get a decent push higher into the close, the Dow ended the day down 302-points and the S&P 500 basically gave back all of Friday's big gains. The Nasdaq lagged with a loss near 2%, and the small caps' losses were commensurate with the large caps. The down day snapped a 4-day winning streak and the S&P had been up 9 of the last 11 trading days.

  2. Exclamation point rally on Friday

    Stocks moved higher again on Friday, putting an exclamation on the recent rally after breaking through one tough level of resistance, although there is more to come. So far the bears have been unable to do anything but sit and watch. The Dow gained 336-points, or 1.38%, and there was green almost across the board.

  3. Will the 3rd time be the charm?

    Stocks opened lower on Thursday, as we have been seeing recently, but they closed strongly after a trade rumor rally took the indices above some key resistance levels. The Dow gained 163-points, or 0.67%, and the bulls seem to be taking charge, although we're at a point that is testing the limits of the technical picture in the S&P 500.

  4. Financial keep stocks rallying

    Stocks rallied yesterday but it was a bit of a deceptive day. The Financials got a big boost from Goldman Sachs and Bank of America giving the XLF a 2% gain, and those financial stocks in the S&P 500 accounted for basically all of the gains. The Dow gained 142-points, or +0.59%, but it was Goldman Sachs' 9.5% gain that accounted for most of that. Otherwise, the S&P 500 was up 0.22% and the Nasdaq +0.15%. Small caps led on the upside and moved above some key resistance.

  5. Bull flag breakout - or fake out?

    Stocks rallied on Tuesday, and despite a midday sell-off after the British Parliament rejected Theresa May's Brexit plan, they bounced back to close near the highs of the day. The Dow gained 156-points, or 0.65%, while the Nasdaq led with a big 1.7% gain. Small caps and the I-fund lagged slightly but were up solidly.
