    ripper: Thanks for posting explanation of methods and recent trade action. I enjoy scanning through TSPtalk member forum posts like yours... lot's of great comments. Helps me form my thoughts and moves as I'm just recently starting to swing-trade some while still steering my TSP. I wish you success!
    Question though... how does "cash" earn 5+%?

    Cash was the current position this weekend.
    The model bought SH on 1/4 @ 21.24 and sold it on 1/19 for 22.46 for a 5.7% gain, moving it to cash.

    Thanx for explanation reply yesterday. FYI, I put in stop-loss order buys for SPY (short-term looks like might turn up) and DUST (similar; looked at it after TS's NGUT/DUST forum post) - to buy IF price up at least slightly above today's close. Currently still have some RAI, RWM and DUG that have done well for a couple days now, & I moved my sell-stops up to ensure some overall gains in those. Looked at those you mentioned too, just didn't buy into them at this time. Good luck!

    Oops. I meant "Userque's" forum post on Gold on my last post here, not TS's. They both have such great posts, I read both a lot.
