    Also, you do have the ability to CANCEL a pending IFT (before the cutoff deadline). After cancelling, you should be able to enter a different allocation.

    It works just like the official site.

Two weeks ago we moved all funds into the G fund. We did this to mitigate risk and damage to our portfolio it turned out to be a great move as markets are lower this week. This also puts us ahead of all funds for the TSP currently. Which means, yes, we are beating the markets! BUT... The year is only halfway over so we really can't claim that. The second part would be when do we put our funds back in? Aw that is the million dollar question. You can wait a certain amount of time, for a certain price, or wait for the tech picture to improve. We will wait until the end of next week to reinsert our funds if not sooner. We don't want to miss what we have gained. Which would be about a 2% advantage on the S and C funds. Questions? Let me know or hit me up on my YouTube channel.

    Looks like this is "we": https://www.youtube.com/user/eggenclark/videos and the videos start out by using Tom's commentary and charts.

    I just watched one of the videos and apparently TSP Talk is part of "we" because he's using the charts I post in my commentary? Flattering, I guess, but no mention or credit to us?

    Be careful Topnotch. These are copyright issues. And you're posting our stuff on your twitter and Facebook accounts? That's not good.




    Friday's TSP Talk commentary...

    Looks familiar...

    Although he does do his own analysis later in the video.

    I'll have to lock this thread until I get some answer.

    Well well. Swing trade didn't work as well as I wanted it too. Waited for the two-day signal / PPO and missed most of the action. I don't want to be chasing so it was time to get back in the market. Here is how my performance worked out.
    Looked at my share prices for the swing trade. Start price on the 19th of June was 52.91 for all S and end price through today was 52.72. Picked up 0.37% on the S fund. I did gain a little on the S fund but not much. Not a loss. Thankful for what I made. Markets will be markets and it is important to not get greedy. I see one more possible swing trade for this month but we will have to wait and see.

    It's soooo hard starting the month off in the G fund on a swing trade because that really means you only have one IFT to move into the funds other than G before moving back to G on a swing trade... Makes it very hard to judge when to pull the trigger. I pulled a little late but I did gain on the S fund and I did my first ITF almost 2/3 of the month remaining. I would call it a win but a small win. With my luck, we will have a red week next week but at least I am a little closer to beating out all funds for the year. Though I wish I would of pulled the trigger earlier it is important to stick to your trading strategy and not get greedy. I feel that I did both of those very well. You will never get out at a perfect top or get in at a perfect bottom but the few small victories are what help you get on top of the funds throughout the year. If you have questions let me know.

    Topnotch- welcome, but you donít get much attention or credit here unless you should your work on the autotracker.

    When you demonstrate you can consistently beat the index funds, Iíll watch.

    When you consistently are in the top 20, Iíll pay attention to your theories .

    Right now I have a great deal of trust in about a dozen people on this board who have demonstrated consistent progress and superior returns. I wish you all the best in convincing me to pay attention. Good luck.

    TopNotch, I have a different perspective.

    There are long-term posters here with dubious tracker histories that consistently receive 'likes' when they post their regular commentary. Point is: Your record, or lack thereof, may not be a strong factor in amassing a following...assuming that's your ultimate goal.

    You will get folks watching you because they want a clue.

    And, you'll get folks watching you because they want to have a front row seat to your demise. Everyone loves, and hates, a train wreck.

    But I see you.

    Welcome.

    Thanks all, I could care less about followers or anything like that. Here to learn and to post what I am doing with my TSP. I realize there is a lot of more experienced folks out there and hopefully, they may drop some advice here or there. If not that is fine. If I trainwreck well I guess I live, and I learn (good thing I am young and have time to learn from my mistakes). No one is perfect when it comes to markets, and at the end of the day, we are all in it together trying to achieve the same thing.

    Just in case I was misunderstood: I didn't mean to suggest that you're a train wreck in the making.

    You're purported returns so far this year are solid.

    Good luck TopNotch, and do keep us posted.

    I notice Tom likes to talk about copper a bit. Teaching moment for me. How does the price of copper affect the markets or TSP funds? Thanks.
