TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

U.S. stock indices were pushed higher on the shoulders of technology giants. The final of the big tech names reported earnings this week and news was not sold. Underlying companies in stock indices, particularly in industrials, underperformed while the money flowed to Apple, Amazon and Facebook; but the sheer size of the tech companies outweigh the negative effects on the indices.

A slight net loss ends a three week winning streak for stocks but also hides intra-week drama that divided the week between the bulls and the bears.

A second consecutive week of gains demonstrates the bull's resilience. The week began with a higher open but market's direction was not uniform day to day. The ongoing assessment of risk produced choppy action throughout the week; the S&P 500 even dropped sharply to negative territory early Thursday but quickly turned around into a rally that kept course for the rest of the week.

Technical analysis is more psychological/sociological speculation on investors than an exact science of chart patterns. An index lets us (everybody) observe where others were willing to buy and sell in the past. Everybody wants a discount on what they think is the true value of stocks. The stock price at the end of the previous Friday and into Monday was a price buyers knew they could find a safe discounted entry. The highs Thursday morning was where sellers thought they could get their best price
