TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

by TommyIV on Today at 02:57 PM
Money circulated markets this week turning big moves into modest weekly net returns. Stock TSP funds were mixed this week ranging from a slight loss in the S-fund to less than a half percent gain in the C and I-funds. At a glance these returns seem a bit dull but are actually a significant win for the bulls considering the C-fund was down1.51% after Tuesday's trading. Volatility spiked this week as investors were more easily manipulated by headlines since seen in early October trading.

Seasonality further propelled stocks to higher highs this week but offbeat action on the short Friday strengthened the bear argument of coming weakness. Both the bulls and the bears may be hoping for some pull-back next week. Stocks are becoming overbought so a pull-back would set up entry points for optimistic bulls while confirming the bear's inclination that markets have reached their peaks.

You can clearly see in the weekly chart below when that made the news.

A mostly lackluster week ends with a rally on the final trading day to push the three major large cap indices into record highs. Earnings were winding down this week and a shortage of market driving news kept the action this week in a flat tight range jumping between gains and losses. It seemed the quiet action was a sign buyers were running out of gas (cash worth putting to work), but President Trump's economic advisor Lawrence Kudlow commented on progress toward a trade deal and the Federal Reserve

A blanket of optimisms about trade progress drove money out the safer havens like bonds and into stocks this week. Remarks of progress from the U.S. Commerce Secretary over the weekend pushed stock prices to new highs to start the week. China's Commerce Ministry's spokesmen sent large caps to higher highs Thursday by saying the phase one trade deal included both U.S. and China canceling an equal amount of tariffs. Prices faded when the Trump Administration did not confirm these claims although damage
