TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

An ugly week for stocks gave the C-fund its sixth straight week of losses, but a bear market rally Friday brought the indices out from the depths. The S&P 500 was at the brink of entering a technical bear market going into Friday. Action has been poor for months but it is a fall of 20% from the highs where Wall Street will consider the index in a bull market; the S&P 500 was down 17.6% from its high on January 3rd coming into Friday. The distinction is arbitrary yet significant to investors and

Stock had a volatile reaction to the FOMC meeting this week that ultimately led to deeper losses in the indices. The Federal Reserve raised interest rates this week by 0.5% for the first time since 2000, and it was their second consecutive meeting where they raise rates.

That was followed by Amazon's worst quarterly loss in seven years reported after the bell Thursday. This sparked

An opportunity or a warning sign? Halfway through this last week, stocks looked to be maintaining a decent comeback from the losses of the recent weeks. That ended Thursday after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell spoke of a fair likelihood the FOMC would raise rates by a half point in the upcoming FOMC meeting. This suggestion coming from the Chairman made it a too real of a possibility for investors. Selling ensued following the comments and pursued through Thursday and Friday. This instant

Stocks prices started the week down and produced only one day of gains in the shortened four-day week. The large cap C-fund lagged the short cap S-fund. Despite both only rising on Wednesday, the S-fund came out of the week with a gain 0.27% holding onto some of the gains of Wednesday's 2.22% gain, while the C-fund finished the week with a 2.11% loss. The I-fund slipped 1.14% for the week.

Inflation data brought more of the same concerns that keep investors hesitant to buy. The Consumer
