  3. TSP Talk: Bulls are put to the test to start the week

    Another expiration week ends with a thud as stocks tumble after a positive open on Friday. This is a tough month for stocks historically and the bears are keeping that reputation alive as the S&P 500 closes negative for a third straight week.

There was an afternoon push higher but the Dow closed down 245-points.

    Mondays continue to be a good day for the stock market. The indices gapped higher after the good news on COVID vaccine progress and we saw the Dow jump 378-points. Apple continues to lead the way but yesterday we saw some of the broader indices and smaller companies climb aboard the upside momentum train. We saw new all-time highs in a few of the major indices, and if there were any negatives, it was that Apple and Tesla, the recent market leaders, may have started to flip.
