TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

After bouncing around wildly earlier in the week, the stock market found its footing and rallied off of the early Wednesday morning low, to reach a new all-time high in the S&P 500 by the close on Thursday (Friday was a holiday.)

Here are the up to date weekly, final March monthly, and end of the 1st quarter, TSP fund returns through March 28:

The S&P 500 finally closed at new all-time highs, passing the previous high hit in early 2000.

Not a common occurrence of course, and two of the three prior instances saw almost immediate major corrections from those highs, while in 1980 the S&P rallied for several more months before peaking, but even then, the S&P 500 saw some sharp short-term pullbacks leading to that peak. I think some caution is warranted here.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

Good luck, and thanks for reading. We will be back here next week with another TSP Wrap Up.
