Bad Job Report Friday?
by  United States crondanet5 | 0 Comments

Tuesday I was trading some stocks, waiting for them to hit my sell price. They did not. I had to revise my sell price to be back in cash overnight. (I sleep well in the cash position). The volumes were quite high, as if a group of investors wanted to get out of the position rather than stay in and make more money. Also recall that yesterday morning's pre-market numbers were positive only to see the market go down soon after the opening. It was the last trading day of the month and the quarter. You would have thought stocks would rise in price as fund managers shuffled stocks to make their quarterly holding reports look better. And Wednesday's pre-market figures aren't showing a rise as 401k/IRA money pours into mutual fund companies. What is going on? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm wondering if there is a whispering on Wall Street that the Friday Job Report will be bad for the market and the big investment houses are taking precautions to protect their fund balance. Even a good job report could be seen as bad for the markets because of the fed's intent to end QE and possibly raise interest rates. This is complete conjecture on my part. We have to see what happens. But for all those TSP Fantasy Gamers who made a move into the markets the past few days it could be bad. We have to wait and see. I'm hoping this is not the way events unfold as I too am in the market. Good luck to all.

Another V-bottom or...
by  United States - Virginia TSP_MVP | 0 Comments

I'm thinking this is either going to be another rebound or a huge sell-off. Sure is looking similar to the August ramp up. The 100 MA has been the area of support for SPY's last few rebounds this year.

Is 9/29 F Fund Return Correct?
by  United States Tomanyiron | 1 Comment

AGG is only up +0.11%, but TSPCenter says F fund up +0.41% (closing price $16.5357) :?:
If it is true, that’s the largest one day bump for the F-ickle fund I have seen in a long time. And puts me back in the green for my 9/2 transfer. :mrgreen:

It must be another glitch because TSPGov says the closing price is $16.4889. :cry:

Did S&P 500 hit a market top (2011.36) on 18 SEP?
by  United States - Pennsylvania Sptms2086 | 20 Comments

It may turn out that the S&P 500 hit a market top (2011.36) on 18 SEP - we'll only know for sure if it did or not in hindsight. However, there is a very bearish divergence between the Russell 2000 small cap index and S&P 500 large cap index. Such a divergence may signal a declining stock market ahead. Any thoughts?

Ascending wedge reversal pattern in the making?
by  United States - Virginia TSP_MVP | 2 Comments

I haven't studied this pattern too much, but it looks like one is playing out on the SPY and it's more noticeable on the QQQ. Once the pattern plays out, there's usually a sharp decline that follows. More info on the pattern here: http://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php? ... e_reversal

October market volatility
by  United States managingts | 3 Comments

Any thoughts on the possibility of having a more volatile market this coming October. I'm trying to figure out if I need to park my TSP back to G Fund in October.

Thank you.
