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

  1. TSP Talk: Internal damage and warning signs

    No follow through to the pre-holiday positive reversal as Turnaround Tuesday turned into a Trouncing Tuesday for stocks. The Dow dropped 543-points on the day, and higher yields rising were the catalyst as the 10-year Treasury moved close to 1.9% yesterday. This recent push higher in yields isn't too much of a surprise to many people, but perhaps the speed of the move is. Some investors, who may be still heavily invested in growth stocks and not allocated for a high interest rate environment, ...
  2. TSP Talk: Late Friday rally erases morning losses

    Stocks bounced back from some early losses to close mixed on Friday. The Dow lost 202-points, which was nearly 300 points off the lows of the day, so there was a nice intraday rebound. The S&P 500 poked into positive territory before the close, but small caps and the I-fund lost some ground on the day despite the late push higher. The dollar was up giving the I-fund some trouble, and yields rallied again sending bonds and the F-fund down sharply.

  3. TSP Talk: Morning rally turns sour

    Stocks opened higher on Thursday after the PPI report was released, but sellers stepped up later in the morning to flip the recent relief rally on its head. The Dow lost 177-points, which was only 0.49%, but the broader indices were clobbered. Tech stocks in the Nasdaq and growth stocks in the small caps were all hit hard. Bonds were down but closed off their lows, as yields eased slightly.

  4. TSP Talk: Is the relief rally running out of steam?

    Yesterday was a day of digesting the recent rally, but the bulls did hold onto modest gains into the close. Some indices hit resistance and slowed a bit, but that's not unusual on the first push higher. The problem is, they can't stop here or the bears will likely show up again. The Dow closed with a gain of 38-points but maybe the biggest move yesterday came from the dollar, which broke down.

  5. TSP Talk: A successful turnaround - so far

    Monday was the real turnaround day but Turnaround Tuesday was also living up to its name as the Dow, down 300 at one time yesterday, ended the day up 183-points. It was also the first positive close for the S&P 500 since the first trading day of the year. The dollar was down sharply pushing prices up almost across the board. Bonds were up as well for a change as yields slipped from recent highs.
