TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

by TommyIV on 10-13-2018 at 02:25 PM
Welcome to October. Most were given their second reality check this year of the risk in stock investing. It was a case of the butterfly effect where the true beginning is nearly impossible to pinpoint but left investors and analysts pointing their finger at high bond yields sparking the technical unwinding of stocks.

The new quarter brought a new character to the market. Coming off a rise in interest rates from the Fed, economic data poured in suggesting a continuation of strong growth in the U.S. economy which gives the Federal Reserve more reason to keep raising rates.

A broad rally Thursday pushed the S&P 500 to new all time highs.

The dip buyers went to work this week after a poor start to September. Stocks were up early and were able to build from there despite negative headlines like Hurricane Florence, but the lack of trade news gave the bulls a reason to put money to work, that is until Friday when a mid-day Chinese tariff headline pushed the indices down temporarily. All in all the S&P 500 produced gains everyday this week after losing value everyday last week. So we are back to where we started this month as
