    Looks like this year is shaping up to be really, really good. I may be a little early on this call though. I've been burned too many times in the past by sitting on the sidelines watching the market run away. That's probably the biggest reason my tsp account is not worth another 200k.

    I won't be spending much time out of the market this year.

    Okay. Not sure when this awesome market will pull back but it's Probably sooner rather than later. Yes James... it probably is a little early.

    But regardless, I am going in 50%.... 25C, 20S, 5-I fund -- plan to stay long-term and through any and all pull backs but likely exit by May.

    Hope to deploy the other 50% before months-end/or during a pull back and use that for short term timing plays. One more IFT to go this month.

    Best wishes to you and everyone on your Investments!!!!!!!

    My retirement investment strategy is to increase my equity position in October and November and then lighten up in April and May. I have between 35% and 50% in equities, with 20-25% bonds and 30-40% cash. I am retired so I do not want to have a high percentage in stocks.

    Well we are a bit down today, but this is expected considering the run up. I'm staying in with the 50% longer term play. Maybe add to position on Monday. I would think it continues down through last two days of February and maybe into March. but feel confident about the future and direction, so no fear!

    Hope you have a great weekend and best wishes on your investments!!!!!

    What I thought was coming this afternoon never happened. Hope all is okay.

    Well....Been difficult to figure what this market wants to do. But must say, I'm glad the late buyers (institutional investors???) bought the dip at the very end of the session. Whewwww...!!!!

    Wishing you a Great Weekend and Best Wishes on your Investments!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S. I heard Ira Epstein on FBN today. He was cautious about market indicating he thought we were in Bull trap based on yesterday's action. He mentions it in his morning flash video that Nnuut posted. Hmmm......

    Ok, so moving in a bit more...before end of month to position for March.
    Increase equities from 50% to 80%. Moving more into C as it looks stronger than S fund right now on both the weekly and daily charts. So i'm now at 60%C, 20%S and 20%G. Pulled the 5% out of the I fund its losing money and seems they will be having elections in Netherlands, France and Germany. Appears March 15, the Netherlands have some elections and more rumblings that these countries could seek to exit European union this year if certain politicians win and some are now talking about limiting immigration from Muslim countries. All that might bring more instability to those markets to some unknown extend. Ughhh... I think ill stay out altogether except maybe very short plays.

    Best wishes to you on your investments and hope you have a good day !!!!!!!!!

    Looking at chart links above... C fund looks okay but S fund weekly chart looks like MAcD crossing to negative. That would not be good. Best wishes everyone!!!!!

    I am seriously thinking to exit today

    Did you exit..I actually am watching you for my cues to take action..I'm not invested by much but I had to get out of the g fund. I'm retired and I need about 4% at least if not 6%.

    Hi kb9,
    Well right now is a good part of year to be invested. But there is always some ups and downs as that is the nature of how the market moves. I would suggest joining one of the premium services. Its not that expensive.

    My strategy is under re-development right now as I try to improve it. My returns last year were not good. But i must admit i mainly had issues with not following through on my signals last year. This year working to make it a bit tighter to take emotions out of the decision. Really tough to do. But I believe that while it is good to read what others say, and consider those view points, it is really best to come into a decision with your own analysis and strategy if you plan to manage your TSP on your own. The amount of risk you can stand is unique to each person.

    I am not an expert and have only been managing my funds since May or so of 2013. I've read a great deal to learn as much as I can about technical indicators. The more I learn, the more I realize the massiveness of the factors that are at play in the market. Very tough to time or come up with a method that works.

    I wish you the best!

    P.S. I ended up staying in...
