TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Stocks continued to be bought this week giving the indices their fourth consecutive week of gains. Four weeks ago it would have seemed foolish to think stocks could make the comeback they have from the December lows. The relentless upside action of January has seemed strange; top analyst have been warning of a pull-back since the beginning of the month. Recent warnings of any unexceptional earnings report being the trigger of a sell-off were dead wrong for the first week of earnings season. Instead

Stocks continued their climb in January in front of earnings season with small caps leading the way. Since the sell-off following the earnings warning from Apple to start the year, stocks have been bought and are slowly taking back the December losses.

After the first few sufferable weeks of December, stocks put on a show for traders producing the only week of gains for the month last week. Stocks began the week with the worst Christmas Eve sell-off in history. Christmas day must have revived the spirit of investors who finally all agreed the indices were oversold.

The Fed decided to raise rates this weeks and investors did not take it lightly. Despite the dovish tone indicating an ease on monetary tightening in 2019, investors started selling and it carried on for the rest of the week.

Investors who kept their position for the week are hoping the Santa Claus rally will finally take place next week. However, seasonality has not been in the bulls favor this year so its not something to be expected.
