    Default F Fund where will it go ?

    I was in the F Fund and switched to the G Fund hoping for the 1 Cent Payday. Following the charts F Fund peaked at $12.23 then fell off and I thought it was going to pay more than 3 Cents yesterday to $12.18 with the markets going crazy I just unloaded to 100 % G Fund. Might be a bad move but nothing to worry about now.

    Does anyone have any predictions for the F Fund in the future or did I get out in time before it drops off?

    I’m no expert, but I have been around long enough to remember when the F-fund was pretty hot when the interest rates were making a steady drop several years back. That said, I have put half my money in each of G and F. I expect the F fund to go up a little more, but the FED is just about out of “bullets”. At that point I will be getting out, perhaps going 100% G. Just my 2¢.

    Well the F Fund took a hit today. Something to keep a close watch on now. Down to $12.10 today.

    Foolishly jumped in 50% at $12.16. Now want out; any idea what it will close at tonight?

    O.K. I'm finally trying to figure this out. Yes it takes homework and No it's not easy.

    I'm using 350Z formula.

    F Fund


    I think you have to first take the open price and subtract the current or last price everytime you try to work your estimate for the $TNX and the $TYX then work the number's the way 350Z show's.

    I came up with currently

    .0172 or a +.02 on the F - Fund.

    If you use Stockcharts.com, you don't have to do that. Just use the change in yields.

    I have the F fund up 3 cents at the moment.
