Thread: Guppies Account Talk

    The dollar falling is what's driving the I fund higher. If I had an IFT left this month I would be transitioning to the C fund. Since I don't I am taking money to the G fund on up days. Not advice, just want to be sure you understand the inverse relationship between the dollar and the I fund.

I hope to catch it on the way back up, given I will only have 1 more IFT.

    Continuing my capital preservation mode. G=78% I=20% S=1% C=1%

    moving 10% to G on the down day was an obvious error, but the market wasn't cratering when I made the call. Moving 30% the day before was well timed and allowed me to maintain my 2% a month goal

    yes, just rounding up last nights contributions. I bailed today just left 1% in S,C,& I. Not sure why, just got a bad feeling that the dollar will rebound next week and beat down the I fund. If I had IFT's left I would have moved to C/S

    I hope you don't make any decision based on my thoughts, I change my mind 10 times a day. I struggled with the sell decision and actually attempted to cancel at the last minuet, but was 10 seconds too late. So I will either be the idiot that sold too soon or looking pretty smart next week (possibly both) but either way it's just dumb luck. Have a great weekend.

    The I fund has a half percent move in the bank premarket as there was no equalization of value at the market close on Friday. Great for all that are still in, kinda sucks for me as I cashed at the close Friday.

    We shall see what today holds. I'm on the ship today I'm gonna wait until lunch to check and change up at the last hour if I need to. For now, the dollar is still slipping after open hour.

    Markets have stalled albeit up, Looking for catalyst?

    I have a TVIX buy programed around 23, not looking very likely today
