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

  1. The November 19 sell off

    Stocks tumbled to start the week with the Dow dropping nearly 400-points. The tech stocks, particular the ones that led this market higher like FAANG stocks, have been getting beaten down with many in bear market territory being down 20% off their highs. The Dow and S&P 500 are only about 8% off their highs so which is the one leading now? Either the indices have further to fall, or those FAANG stocks are getting cheap enough to buy.

  2. Looking for some holiday bullishness by the end of the week

    tocks opened lower on Friday but found support near the opening lows and ended up with a modest positive follow-through to Thursday's big reversal day.

The losses weren't terrible, but more demoralizing to the bulls who ...
  5. Falling oil prices adding to the questions for this market

    Stocks gave us a little bit of everything on Tuesday. We saw an early rally fail, but it bounced back to new intraday highs about an hour later, only to fail again. The Dow ended the day down 101-points while the broader indices were closer to flat with the S&P losing 0.15% and small caps just barely negative.
