TSP Talk Blog

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Bulls taking a breather

    Stocks opened lower on Monday morning, caught some buying interest, but then traded sideways for most of the day for an uneventful, modestly negative day. The Dow lost 86-points while small caps and the Nasdaq struggled and lagged, but for the most part the bears didn't take much advantage of another weak opening allowing the bulls to hold things up relatively speaking.

  5. Make a break week as bear market rally gets stretched

    Stocks were flat by the close on Friday but it was actually another minor victory for the bulls who were able to take another awful opening and rally stocks into the close. The Dow lost 6-points, but that was the high of the day. Oil was down so the stock market still seems to be following its lead.
