Thread: ripper's account talk

    Default Re: ripper's account talk

    Due to limited internet access, I learned this morning that the system moved from a sell to a buy at the close yesterday. Therefore, I sold my SPXU position a little bit ago at $18.33 and will buy UPRO at today's closing price.

    Ripper, for us TSP types... is that like a move from C to F?

    No. It would be similar to moving from G and/or F to C and/or S.
    I'm using this system for my positions on the AutoTracker to see how it works with the TSP system and made a transfer to 50C/50/S today. I used it for the AutoTracker last year and had a return of over 14%, which I was satisfied with since it was in the G fund the majority of the time.

    If its not too much trouble, could you translate your moves to TSP speak? It would be highly appreciated by many, I'm sure. I obviously had it 180 out, which could prove to be disastrous in decision making.

    Sure, I'd be glad to.

    As I posted earlier, I sold my 50% position in SPXU for 18.33, for a loss of 1.6%. That reduces the system's year-to-date profit to +2.3%.
    I took a 100% position in UPRO at the closing price of 76.63.
    I also made an IFT on the AutoTracker to 50C/50S. My YTD return on the AutoTracker is currently +1.43%.
    Obviously a little late to the rally, but just following the system. Hopefully there's something left in this bounce.

    It appears that the system will move to a sell signal at the close today, so I am making an IFT to 45G/45/F/10C on the AutoTracker.

    That didn't go well.

    The system I'm following uses closing market data. This morning, there was a high probability that the key indicator I was watching would move to a sell at the close. Since the TSP cut-off is 4 hours before the close, I chose to front-run the signal and make an IFT. Naturally, the indicator moved back to a buy in the last hour of trading, so the system remains on a buy.

    I knew this would be an issue trading with TSP. I guess from now on I'll wait until I'm certain of the signal, even if it means making a transfer a day later.

    System officially moved to a sell at the close today. I will sell UPRO at tomorrow's opening price and take a 50% position in SPXU.

    I sold UPRO at today's opening price of 79.90 for a gain on the trade of 4.3%. I took a 50% position in SPXU at the opening price of 17.30. Following this morning's trades, the system has a return of +6.7% YTD.
    The system remains 45G/45F/10C in the TSP with a YTD return of +2.83%.

    While the system remains on a sell - for now - I made an IFT on the AutoTracker this morning to move to 90G/10C to lock in the recent gains from the F Fund.

    I also sold some of my SPXU in my personal account, although the allocation will remain at a 50% position for tracking purposes until I get a signal to move to cash or buy. I felt it prudent to lock in some gains from a 9% gap up at the open.

    The system moved to cash today. I sold my 50% position in SPXU at 21.54 for a net profit on the trade of 12.3%.
    The system is now in cash and is +19.8% YTD.

    The TSP model remains 90G/10C and is +2.37 YTD per the AutoTracker.
