  1. Another trade rally, and no concern over DC turmoil

    Stocks up, bonds down. That's been the theme since early October and on Friday we saw more of the same with the late spike higher feeling a little like a capitulation from the bears, giving up on the idea of a pullback, or having their short position (bets against stocks) getting stopped out because of the breakout. Either way that kind of action comes closer to the frothy part of rally and sets up good profit taking opportunities for those who have been smart enough to ...
  2. The action remains quiet while the Hindenburg Omen warings add up

    Yet another mixed and flat day for stocks as the quiet, light volume trading continues on Wall Street. The Dow lost 2-points, the S&P gained 3, the Nasdaq lost 3, and the Russell 2000 lost 39 cents. It's been a yawner this week with earnings winding down, the impeachment hearings going on, the China trade deal appearing good but in limbo, and interest rates down, but not going lower.

  3. Another quiet day for stocks despite some hurdles

    Stocks were mixed once again with the Dow leading the way on the upside. Like Boeing the other day, Disney came out with some intraday data about signups to their streaming service and it helped the Dow outperform the broader indices, gaining 92-points. 70 of those came from Disney's gain.

A final hour bounce took the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq back out of the red and into the positive side, although Dow closed exactly flat, which is certainly a rare event. Don't forget that the TSP share prices below include Monday and Tuesday's market action, so they won't match Tuesday's tracking index.
  5. Yield curve steepens, but...

    Stocks were mixed on Monday, although mostly lower because only a big 4.6% gain in Boeing's stock, which was responsible for more than100 positive points in the Dow, kept it in the green.

    The Index charts below on the right are from Monday's market action but the share prices on the left are from Friday since Monday was a Federal / TSP holiday and there were no TSP share prices posted. Tuesday's share prices will reflect the changes from
