    Did 400 or so names fall off the AutoTracker? I'm still sucking bilge water at the bottom of the list... I guess that's why I noticed, thought I did something incredible and jumped from #1068 to #669!

    There is a note down there about "Hidden = User has not logged in for at least 180 days."

    I'm guessing they got booted off. I better go login just in case.

    After a year of being idle accounts get hidden and I believe May was a significant month for reactivating a lot of accounts a year ago.

    Two years and the account is deleted.

    IKR? I looked at DWCPF around 1450 and it was up close to 1%. I looked at it again about 10 min later only to see the plunge. Ticked me off because it was doing so good all day long.

    Confession: My major shortcoming - neglecting to set a stop. While we can't put in stop on a trade in the TSP site, we can have a mental stop. If breached, bail to G, fall back and regroup. Hopefully others can learn from my mistake (maybe I'm the only one? ). So, for DWCPF, 1150 would be a point to bail if breached, as there is support there, and would be a significant change in direction, busting the lower side of the channel... thoughts?

    I'm in the same boat brother. Add to that riding the drop all the way down and then bailing at or near the bottom. Then the real frustrating part is not re-engaging when the market bounces back and missing the opportunity to regain those losses. I think for myself, greed keeps me in a declining market and fear keeps me out of a rising market. DBA is very good at getting out when things are not going well and may throw her two cents into the conversation. I think we can all learn something from setting personal stops no matter which way the market is moving.

    Good luck with your latest trade!

    So Whipsaw, you've got my attention about these stops. DWCPF at 1150, puts it just above the 50 DMA. Seems a long way to go for a stop considering DWCPF closed at 1305 today. I was thinking more along the lines of a percentage, say if it drops 2% then bail or maybe if it drops two days in a row, bail. I admit, I am not up on putting in stops and should probably educate myself, so any thoughts on the subject you want to share would be most appreciated.

    P.S. We did good today. Let's hope we get more of the same tomorrow.

    Wow! I haven't heard anyone talking about stops in a long time.
    May the force be with us.

    So I did a little reading on stops this evening (that's why there's no Best Fund/Worst Fund this evening). There were a number of examples of how to set a stop. One particularly interested me stating a stop could be initiated when the days closing price fell below the 10 day moving average. Long ago, I created a spreadsheet that tracks the 10, 20, 50 and 100 day moving average as well as the days closing price for F, C, S and I funds. It's simple, easy and something I am already tracking so it is really a no brainer.

    As you know, I am now with a premium service, but there is nothing that says I must follow the signals provided. Buy and sell signals are an integral part of being with a premium service, but there is great value in the additional commentary provided. I think I could be okay with going that route for awhile to see how it works out.

    With that said, this evening the closing price for the S Fund (DWCPF) was 1305.64. According to my spreadsheet the 10 day moving average is 1259.00. That means I'm staying in for now.
