    I-fund near 2-year low. FWIW.

    The I fund is painful right now, is there another correction going on?

    Technically, the I-fund is still in a bear market and add to that the recent pop in the dollar and that's the bad situation.

    How did the EFA perform so poorly today? +0.27% is not exactly what I expected after seeing the DAX, FTSE, and CAC 40 all up at least +2% each. It looks like the Nikkei 225 and Hang Seng had great days as well. This doesn't make sense to me.

    Edit: Looks like we got a little bump from the TSP gods to bring it in at +0.76%. That is still incredibly low compared to how the underlying indexes performed. Maybe they give us a little more on the back end of tomorrow as well.

    I just looked up the country weights again. Here's the list...

    Japan 23.35%
    United Kingdom 19.71%
    France 9.93%
    Switzerland 9.25%
    Germany 8.95%
    Australia 6.16%
    Spain 3.34%
    Hong Kong 3.06%
    Sweden 2.86%
    Netherlands 2.82%
    Italy 2.39%
    Denmark 1.75%
    Belgium 1.40%
    Singapore 1.26%
    Other 3.77%

    So the top 5 countries by weight make up ~70% of the I fund (EFA), they all had huge UP days, and somehow we end up getting less than half of the average that they made? I didn't look up every country, but I would guess the others had similar days.

    It's getting ugly in Europe. Politics in Italy and a falling Euro has the EAFE dropping quickly below its 200-day EMA.
