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

  1. June Jobs Report +4.8 million, 11.1 pct. Unemployment

    Record jobs gain of 4.8 million in June smashes expectations; unemployment rate falls to 11.1%

    Nonfarm payrolls rose by 4.8 million in June, much better than the expected increase of 2.9 million.

    The unemployment rate fell to a crisis low of 11.1%, also better than the 12.4% estimate.
  2. TSP Talk: Jobs report meets holiday action

    Stocks were mixed on the first trading day in July, and the first day of the third quarter. The bulls took over after a flattish open, but there was some selling late in the day to take the indices off their highs. The Dow lost 78-points while the broader indices posted modest gains. Small caps lagged with the Russell 2000 losing about 1% on the day, but our S-fund clung to a small gain, thanks to midcaps having a decent day.

  3. TSP Talk: Stocks end historic quarter on bullish note

    Stocks finished a decent month, and an historic quarter, for stocks with another rally. The Dow gained a healthy 217-points, but it was held back by a big loss in Boeing. Meanwhile the broader indices saw nearly twice the percentage gains. FedEx was up sharply (+9%) after the bell yesterday after handily beating earnings estimates.

  4. TSP Talk - Stocks bounce off of moving averages

    Stocks bounced back on Monday after last week's sell-fest, which we have been assuming was a required seasonal pension fund rebalancing as we head into the new quarter. Volume was light again, also suggesting that these large pension funds may have completed, or nearly completed, their selling. The Dow gained 580-points, while the large tech stocks lagged and small caps led the TSP Funds.

  5. TSP Talk: Pension rebalancing punctuates bad week

    Stocks failed to follow through on Thursday positive reversal day, and instead rolled over and basically repeated Wednesday's 700+ point sell-off. Trading volume was elevated possibly suggesting it was another day of pension fund rebalancing. The Dow lost 730-points and the selling was broad, sparing few sectors. The charts are now testing some crucial support levels.
