    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    And here is my ugly morning...jumped back into the S Fund. If we don't have a late rally, should get a nice entry point. Best of Luck!

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    Back in the days of unlimited moves in the TSP, I would have jumped back in this morning. But alas, those days are long gone. I am going to be a bit more active this year, playing my "jump in on...

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    Headed to the sidelines...bought the S on 10/12 at $38, hopefully the morning holds and I will sell at $41.80.

    Still optimistic for the rest of 2017, just wanted to turn my paper gains into $...

    Knowing my luck...an afternoon rally will wipe out yesterday's losses and my "dip-buy" will turn out to be bust.

    I am headed to the sidelines...just scared of what the next week might do, takes me out until October 1...which I don't like. Two interfund transfers a month stinks!

    Hi! I went all in this morning (G to the S)... I can't point to anything that indicates the economy is in bad shape overall...rate hike included. I think the real battle is between the Fed and the...

    So here is my thoughts for the day and as close to any type of technical analysis that you will get from me.

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    Thanks for the kind words. I decided to be a little more active this year...so far so good. On pace for a 156% return this year.
  13. Re: What's your criteria for selecting between C or S Fund when making an IFT?

    My advice is much more technical so hang with me...look at the last 30-90 days of share prices.................................and see which one has moved higher.

    You aren't joking about 2008...when I let it ride in the S fund and ate a 30+% loss.

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    In 2008 or 2009 (not sure which, getting old screwing with my long term memory) I was the top overall performer. I wasn't particularly brilliant, quite on the contrary...I had my $ in the S fund on...

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    Jumped in at the right time, good to be lucky every once and a while.

    Not that anyone asked, but here is my investment strategy...I even came up with a witty name: The Oliver Stone method.

    Re: BigJohn's Account Talk

    My gut's feeling for today: C and S (never have had a clue about the I) peak in the green around .5% by lunch time, end up closing .5ish in the red. I think we will have a nice 1-1.5% upswing one...

    I am staying on the sidelines for a while. I don't trust this market and don't believe the seasonal trend (Santa Rally) is a lock. I had a gut feeling today would start good and end ugly, had this...

    And I would have...but for being in travel status an unable to log in.

    If today's red numbers hold for another 15 minutes, it is into the S fund I go.
