TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Recent market weakness remained in tact early in the week pulling stocks down but robust earnings sparked a two day rally to end the week distancing the indices from the recent lows. The bears have been in control since the beginning of September but the bulls displayed some dominance with two back to back rallies to turn weekly losses to around 2% gains. A gap up Thursday was sparked by strong bank earnings among others and the build up of gains attracted underinvested bulls suffering from the

Returns were mixed this week among all the TSP funds. The C-fund, which follows the S&P 500 index, had its best week since August while the small cap S-fund was flat for the week and the foreign market I-fund was down more than a quarter percent. However the greatest loss for the TSP funds came from the F-fund. Investors are exiting bonds even with a deal made to avoid payment default by the government until December. The volatile action continued coming into this week but leveled off by Friday.

Stocks wrapped up an ugly month on Thursday before starting the new month and quarter with gains. Still all the TSP funds were down for the week with the I-fund taking the greatest loss. For the S&P 500, Thursday marked the biggest monthly loss since March 2020 and ended a five quarter winning streak.

A wild week for stocks started with a 1.7% loss on Monday for the S&P 500 and ended with a 0.52% gain for the week. The main concern going into the week was the downfall of one of China's largest companies Evergrande. Evergrande is primarily a real estate company and property developer that used accumulating debt to keep operations moving forward. That debt ran above $300 billion and the Chinese government put restrictions on the company's borrowing. A good amount of the debt issuers are U.S. bond

It was a week of choppy action for stocks battling between gains and losses. The C and S-funds were about even with gains for the week going into Friday which is where the two funds diverged. All of the TSP funds were down on Friday but the greatest loss went to the C-fund which was down 0.91% while the S-fund took back just 0.09%. This split the funds giving the C-fund a 0.54% loss for the week while the S-fund ended with a gain of 0.26%. The I-fund lagged the TSP funds with a 0.85% loss
