  1. TSP Talk Market Commentary 01/29/2020

    Stocks snapped back after a 6 day losing streak (for the Dow). The Dow gained back 187-points and we saw much bigger percentage gains in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, but it may have been a better sign if volume was a little better because the lighter trading volume doesn't make for a great reversal day.

    The Dow gave up an early morning triple digit gain to close slightly negative (-10) while the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and the I-fund posted gains for the day, but closed well off the highs. The small caps of the Russell 2000 also gave up a nice early gain and closed down, but the S-fund small/mid cap fund held onto a small gain. The Transports were down sharply again and bonds were up.
