TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Stocks fell for the third consecutive week with news headlines and the yield curve in the driver's seat. Stock indices began the week down before news of a delay on the tariffs promised by the Trump Administration gave instant life to buyers who left when the tariffs were first announced. The good times were short lived after investors were spooked Wednesday when the 10-year Treasury yield momentarily fell below the 2-year yield; a popular indicator of an upcoming recession. Stocks produced their

Stocks had their greatest single day loss of the year Monday after trade disputes continued over the weekend, but prices climbed out of the early hole throughout the week to minimize the damage.

Stocks had their worst weekly performance since December triggered by surprise tariffs that followed a hawkish Fed rate cut. Action was quiet ahead of the Fed decision to cut rates a quarter percent.

The message was basically a warning that the rate cut was a mid-cycle adjustment not the start of an extensive easing program.

Stocks began to regain

A majority of the market driving companies have outperformed in what was expected to be a lackluster earnings season. Those driving stocks are also holding onto those gains rather seeing profit taking after early gains; something we were seeing early on during the earnings.

Economic data added to the gains helped

Mixed earnings and mixed messages from the Fed gave investors mixed feelings. The bulls lost their control of the market this week as poor earnings like we saw from Netflix were punished while outperforming earnings like we saw from Microsoft could not hold onto to gains. The only life we saw from buyers this week came Thursday when comments from a Fed member were interpreted to mean a 0.5% rate cut was coming at the next FOMC meeting. However this was short lived as the Fed corrected itself and
