Ok, new to this so "bear" with me.

So far in Feb I was able to get all of my "G" fund out 6 Feb thinking I was able to hit the bottom of the VIX trade off, but saw the 2nd 1000pt drop in the same week. That said, rode it out to 14 Feb evening out, then I moved everything to the "S" fund for a one day risk and placed the second of my IFT prior to 12:00 to reduce any risk back to the "G" 92% "F, C, S, I" 2%. Seeing today's drop and pending more to come I feel I did alright this month. :arms:

Now I am stuck watching 2% for the next week and a half. Unless I move them also into the "G"

Did some analysis and if the "bear" market turns its head then I'm guessing that the "F" will be the way to go so keeping a close eye there for my March moves.

It doesn't look like you started AutoTracker until mid February so it is hard to tell since your stated moves don't match what I can see in AutoTracker. In any case, Welcome & wishing you many positive returns :D

Still trying to understand that whole Auto tracker thingy. Thanks for wishes!

The AutoTracker is just an informative tool that let's TSPer's observe how others are doing in their TSP, percentages only. The only thing you need to do is to input your fund percentages if and when you make an IFT in your real TSP account. This keeps the playing field level so to speak.
