    Default On the Fence

    I've been parked in the G Fund for a while now. I believe we are on the verge of seeing a short term upswing in the F fund for the next few weeks. I don't think it will last long but wanted to get some of your opinion on what you think.

    I'm on the fence and need a push in either direction. Short term. Still have both my IFTs left for the month.

    FWIW, I'm sticking w/G for TSP time being, but increased relative proportions of my mutual fund $ in bond funds (shortterm and mixed bonds) and decreased relative proportions in risky stock funds this morning. I can only move $ in those funds about every 90 days without penalties, so that tells you where I think the market is likely to go over the next quarter (what I'm willing to risk market directionwise outside TSP anyway).

    Thanks for the responses. I couldn't make my mind up either way so I went 50/50 G/F to keep constant with my mindset. Tech Analysis, at least when I posted this wasn't showing anything bullish on AGG that I could see but with the yields dropping in the bonds, I thought it may be a good time.

    My opinion on the AGG is that it's just a chart that is pretty to look at during the day.

    Anyone that has tried to catch the bottom the last 16 months has had their head handed to them.

    We are going to take out the November lows on this move. The charts are a train wreck.

    The Hope of the New Administration is going down the Slope. Don't go with it.

    Hey all,
    I've been G,F,C,S,I: 50,41,3,3,3%'s, for weeks now and although all the other funds have been helter-skelter, I've been making gains slowly plodding along. Sometimes when I get a loss, the LOSSES are big but they are few and far in between.

    Default Fed decision and F Fund?

    I must admit that I'm as confused by F Fund as I ever was. But if the Fed is that determined to drive yields down, that should be a seriously good thing for F Fund, right??

    Let's hope that's the case

    It's way over due for a boost

    Of course ALL of us - Except for Birch keep expecting the Markets to resume a big time crash which will send it up as well.

    Well good night all ---- heading home.
