    Default 1965Vintage's Account Talk

    Howdy everyone. I'm new to the site and am looking forward to getting to know everyone and beating this market.

    Iv'e been in the TSP since 2000 and actively traded it most of that time.
    I used to dabble in day-trading and keeping up with the market is a hobby of mine. I understand candlestick charts to a certain degree but I am no expert.


    My PIP was 4.75% last year so I didn't do so good. Here's to a better year!

    I moved 100% from the G fund into the C Fund today. I am playing the contrarian on this trade. The general view seems to be that the market will sell off next week and I am thinking it will surprise the Street to the upside.
    I will plan to go back in the G Fund later next week depending on what the market does Monday.

    My goal with my TSP is to make 1% each month. Any more is just extra gravy on the taters!

    I hope I filled out the Auto Tracker thing right. I guess I will see tomorrow if I did.

    This whole auto tracker thing/contest looks like a hoot. I wish I had known about it before now.

    Welcome aboard. Hope your contrarian proves accurate...check out DBA's posts and you will see why I am hesitant to agree with you. Those Bollinger bands getting constricted combined with the EMA's slope has me concerned. Combine that with the trans not breaking out (I hoped they would this week) and the strength in the dollar (DXY up almost 1% today) has me concerned.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm right on the contrarian play. Those tight BB's do have me concerned. But here lately whenever the "experts" on CNBC think the market is going to zig, it zags!

    I was hoping the Netflix earnings would boost the SPY today, but the futures are flat this morning. We shall see.

    Feeling really good about my C Fund move here. Wish I had gone 50-50 between C & S, but that's water under the bridge now.
    The VIX was down 5.95% today and is right at the 52 week low. This is a good sign that the market is going to move up from here.
    I am thinking if the Dow breaks that mental and magic 20,000 level tomorrow there will be a rally after that from short covering and people jumping in to chase the bull.
    As long as earnings are good the rest of the week and there are no political surprises, I don't see why the market shouldn't keep going up for the short term.

    Life is good!

    I got up this morning and looked at the charts and thought I shouldn't get greedy. I've done good for January and am happy with 1+% returns for the month. So I moved everything over to the G Fund for a COB- 01/25/2017 transaction. Then I went to play golf.
    Well, I just got home and when I went to input my IFT into the Auto-Tracker I remembered that I had to do it before 12:10 eastern time. So my entry is going to be wrong unless there is a way that someone can fix it?
    Sorry I forgot to do it. It wont happen again.
    Does anybody know the procedure for getting them to change it to COB 01/25/2017?

    I was able to get it changed. Thank you TSPTalk! Next time I'll enter my info into the auto-tracker right after I do my IFT.

    I prolly got out a day early. But I feel better not being in the market over the weekend. I still feel like the democrats are going to pull something stupid. they are losing their minds over Trump's new policy's. It's fun to watch, but something could erupt over it.
    Just being careful for now.
