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

  1. TSP Talk: Yes, it looks like rotation, but the Naz isn't dead yet

    The very large cap stocks and the small caps stocks led the way yesterday. The smaller large caps, and the midcaps weren't quite as impressive. the Nasdaq lagged again being one of the few indices down on the day. The Dow gained another impressive 358-points (+1.3%) and the Russell 2000 small cap index was up 1%.
