TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

U.S. stock indices gave back early gains in a choppy week to finally settle with small gains. A rally Monday stretched indices higher following the gains produced the week before. From there market players took profits and the market slid the next three days. There were signs of life from buyers after the morning sell-off Thursday to the early trading hours of Friday but those early gains were given back the rest of the day.

Stocks have the reasoning to sell-off so despite the choppy

Fear of missing out drove stock prices to their best weekly advance in three months. Buyers and dip buyers reduced caution and bought up stocks despite a sick president, another bump in the road for covid-19 stimulus deal, and an earnings season projected to expose the damage of the pandemic on companies. Trying to make sense of the optimism is all guess work and involves interpretation of what investors expect out of the upcoming elections. I'm still going with the my thoughts last week that the

Stocks started the week with gains and maintained those gains through turbulent action to end the weekly losing streak.

Easy gains are gone. Its a swing traders market where the market's tone changes day to day and those who play hope to land on the right side of the rallies and corrections. As a whole the market is on a down trend. If you are a buy and holder, paying attention to this market is a sure way to add stress to your life. The stock indices ended the week with a rally but also a fourth consecutive week of losses. A buy and holder should make one of three decisions: step aside and wait for the markets to

Volatility continued this week resulting in mixed stock action but with a common pull back from the mid-week highs among the TSP stock funds. The S and I-fund finished the week with gains while the C-fund, which follows the action of the S&P 500, fell for a third straight week. The difference is the weight of the troubled tech sector the S&P 500 holds. Big tech names continue to drag down indices performances and the result is a false representation of the market as a whole. Investing in the C-fund
