  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.

    I agree with you coolhand..... ..... thanks for your advise ..... !!!! that is why I like to ask you person email because your system gives buy signal ... but I think the price is high already .... so ... .I like to ask you .... !!! thanks a lot !

    the past 6 months of 2010 I have 17% return I main trade is G , S , and I ... and I think I just lucky .... there are a lot things I confuse !!! and don't know !

    All, thanks for your time to explain for me !

    good luck for you too coolhand,

  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!

Working Out the Kinks

by coolhand on 05-21-2017 at 01:39 PM
It was another down week last week, unless you were in the I or F funds. But the good news is that there were two upside reversals last week that are highly suggestive of a bottom being in.

Charts and Stuff-s-p-500-png

The S&P 500 shows us that price gapped lower last Wednesday, breaking and closing well under the 50 dma. But then we see two back-to-back rallys that erased a good portion of Wednesday's losses and that puts price with striking distance of overhead resistance

More of the Same?

by coolhand on 05-13-2017 at 04:54 PM
I really thought the market was going to do better last week than it did. All three TSP stock funds closed with weekly losses, and it was the S fund that led the way again.

The S&P 500 has traded in a range for the better part of 3 weeks now. It tested its previous all-time high early in the week last week, but fell back by week's end. Still, it's in the middle of its range so it wouldn't take much for it to retest that line of resistance

EFA Madness

by coolhand on 05-06-2017 at 06:30 PM
Last week, I said I was leaning bullish for the week on solid breadth and liquidity readings. I also noted that NAAIM was bullish, which is bullish for the market in general.

But it was a tough week for those of us in the S fund as that index closed just 0.04% higher. And it took a big Friday rally just to get back to even. The C fund fared better with a 0.66% gain, but it was the I fund (EFA) that really stood out as it tacked on a cool 2.57% gain. I really don't know how long that

One Day at a Time

by coolhand on 04-29-2017 at 06:13 PM
In my last post in my account talk thread, I said that the options smart money was pretty bearish and NAAIM got more bullish. That told me we were likely to see short-term weakness, but more than likely it would not last given NAAIM's bullish disposition (along with the technical indicators in general). We got the weakness Friday, but with the exception of small caps, the bears didn't get as much traction as they might have liked.

Keeping It Simple

by coolhand on 04-22-2017 at 06:44 PM
Last week, I said I was expecting the market to bias higher. The up and down nature of trading didn't change, but by week's end the market was higher. All three TSP stock funds were up as the S fund more than doubled the C fund, which came in 2nd place with a gain of 0.87% to the S fund's impressive 2.07%. The I fund just did keep its head above water with a 0.11% gain.
