  1. Yes. It's all manual. I've been doing it long enough that it doesn't take me an inordinate amount of time to generate the charts. It's important that I keep it that way too. I'm going to give this some more thought. Maybe I can come up with a viable solution that doesn't take too much time and has some measure of value.
  2. Hi. Are you manually inputting your data?

    Hi Coolhand, I'm new to the site. Studied it hard and long and attached myself to a few folks who I think have good advice to offer on TSP allocations. I need to take control of my TSP. So I thank you in advance. Besides you can't be all that bad, we have two things in common, Navy vets and fisherman. Thanks for your insight.

  9. I think risk is too high at the moment to get into stocks. I'm not saying the market can't go higher, but it's been up most of the month and a better buying opportunity may come over the next week or two. But predicting this market is extremely difficult and given the high degree of volatility I'd prefer to stay in cash or bonds myself. But that's just me.

    When my system gives a buy it just means you can buy stocks. Primarily C and S, but the I fund may be okay too depending on what the dollar is doing. Right now the dollar has been dropping so allocating something to that fund would make sense.

    Please be aware that I don't tell anyone how to trade their accounts. My purpose on this board is to give readers an informed perspective, but there are other perspectives out there too and they don't always agree with mine. Take your time to understand what's going on and why folks move in and out of the market. The more you understand, the better decisions you'll make. Good Luck!

The Bull Hits Fresh Highs

by coolhand on 07-16-2017 at 01:33 PM
Last week, I said that I thought the market was probably close to a bottom. I had my eye on Weird Wolly Wednesday as the day we might confirm a bottom and thought we'd get some weakness during a volatile trading day. We got neither after the market dipped on Tuesday, but roared to life on Wednesday with a bias higher the rest of the week.

It's easy to miss the big moves in this market with all of the chopping up and down for weeks. And now, in a matter of just a few days, the market

Have We Bottomed?

by coolhand on 07-08-2017 at 07:40 PM
Last week, I said I was looking higher for the new week. I thought the market might be poised for an upside breakout. The fact was and perhaps still is, that price has been resilient, with downside traction remaining limited. This helped keep me in the bullish camp along with positive breadth and liquidity.

As it turned out, the TSP stock funds closed mixed on the week, with the C fund posting a modest gain, while the S fund was down modestly and I fund moderately lower. Thursday's

Holding the Line for Now

by coolhand on 07-02-2017 at 10:31 AM
Last week, I said I was neutral. I opined that with recent all-time highs tagged not too long ago on the DWCPF, I had to give some weight to a possible correction of 4-5% and maybe even more over the days or weeks ahead. That's still valid. I noted that the BKX (Bank Index) has been weak of late, with price closing at its 50 dma the previous Friday. But then Monday, the BKX took off and rallied hard for most of the week. I felt that remaining long in the C, S, or I funds as long as breadth, liquidity

Bias Remains Higher

by coolhand on 06-24-2017 at 08:06 PM
Last week, I said I was leaning bullish for the new week as downside pressure was not particularly worrisome. I also pointed out that breadth and liquidity remained bullish along with the smart money at NAAIM. For the week, the C and S funds were up moderately, but the I fund was down a bit.

The S&P 500 rallied sharply last Monday to a fresh all-time high, but then reversed sharply on Tuesday with modestly dips again on Wednesday and Thursday.

Keeping Everyone Guessing

by coolhand on 06-20-2017 at 05:56 PM
It looks like volatility is back again, though for how long I don't know. Tuesday's selling pressure took back the bulk of Monday's gains, though the DWCPF gave them back and bit more. There didn't appear to be any real reason for the reversal, but there doesn't always have to be one.

Price on the S&P 500 did not quite fill that last gap created by Monday's rally. Momentum has turned back down again.
