TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

After a couple of weeks of selling, stocks started to rebound from some extreme oversold conditions last week.  The question now is whether we have seen the lows or if this is just a relief rally.  Geopolitical events are still playing catalyst as solid gains on Friday quickly turned into losses when violence was sparked in the Ukraine.  Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending August 15: There was a lot of green in the TSP funds last week and only…See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Bombing in Gaza.  The Russians amassing troops at the Ukrainian border.  U.S. Airstrikes in Iraq.  The European economy rapidly slowing down.  An Ebola outbreak.  And U.S. stocks were up last week.  It took a 186-points rally in the Dow on Friday to push the indices into positive territory, and that probably took many investors by surprise. The indices were very oversold and due for a bounce, and that is the setup market timers look for, while investors were just glad to get some of their…See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Stocks had to endure a Fed policy statement and the July jobs report this past week and the result was 2% or more declines in the indices.  Neither seemed to be the direct culprit of the selling, but rather the combination of geopolitical events and weakness in Europe seemed to finally take its toll on stocks. Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending August 1: And here are the final numbers for the month of July (the "Chg year" figure below is through…See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Stocks had a little bit of something for everyone last week with gaps up, gaps down, and some very low volume flat days, but by the end of the week the S&P was flat losing just 12 cents or 0.01%.  Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns through Friday, July 25...  The small caps were the losers and the I-fund led the way, despite a move higher in the U.S. dollar.  The SPY (S&P 500) was down on Friday, giving back the gains from earlier in the week, but it…See More

TSP Talk - Weekly Wrap Up

Volatility kicked in some this week as we saw back to back 1% moves in the S&P 500 after not having one for over 60 days.  Apparently the geopolitical events that scared the market on Thursday was an overreaction and the buyers came back with a vengeance on Friday.  The S&P 500 is back near all-time highs but some indices are showing signs of wear, and we'll have to see which ones lead the way. Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns through Friday, July 18... …See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

We were having a very nice week until early Friday morning, when things fell apart.  The jobs report came out, and the market seemed to like it.  Stocks opened higher after the report, but something went very wrong shortly thereafter.  Despite the big losses on Friday, we actually posted modest gains for the week in the stock funds. Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns through Friday, April 4...  The good news is, the 20-day EMA held during Friday's sell off.  The…See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

 Stocks bounced around quite a bit last week, and the trend was for strong morning action, followed by some profit taking later in the day, but when it was over, we saw respectable gains for the week.  The situation in the Ukraine has investor's on their toes, but the indices continue to climb that preverbal wall of worry, and February ended its strong month on a high note. Here are the weekly, the final February, and annual TSP fund returns through Friday, February 28...  The S&P…See More

TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Stocks were mixed last week with the Dow and S&P 500 (C-fund) posting minor weekly losses, while the small caps and the I-fund posted nice gains.  Bonds (F-fund) were up slightly, but still beat the G-fund. Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns through Friday, February 21...  The S&P 500 (SPY / C-fund) has spent the last 5-days flirting with the the prior highs, clearly running out of gas after the big 7 - 8 day rally.  The question is whether this pause is…See More
