    I was going to try and put in an IFT tomorrow morning so I'll post tomorrow (or Monday?) when I know for sure whether it worked.

    If it doesn't accept an IFT does the system just shoot back an error message saying you're over the limit?

    No, they send someone in size 12 jump boots to reinforce their message.

    If you are over the limit, then yes, it tells you immediately.

    Which means you won't be in the new fund until Tuesday (well, COB Monday), and the IFT would count in May. Might as well wait until Monday morning to see which direction the wind's blowing before pulling the trigger.

    So Nate,

    For verification:

    You used two IFTs in the month of April. On the last trading day of the month (April 29th)

    You received the following error when trying to trade before 1200 EST:

    You cannot transfer among the other funds until after noon eastern time on the last business day of this month.
    True?

    Roger!

    Probably insignificant, but 3 IFT's actually in April:
    S fund
    I fund
    back to G fund

    This morning 0415 PST got the error message explaining I've already used my two allowed IFT's for the month.
    I've got class at 0900 PST and will not be able to try again until appx 1130'ish PST

    That counts as a May IFT since it was AFTER 1200 EST.
