    In other words, if you think buying into the market now is a good idea or is a terrible idea, you are exactly right.

    And if the past few weeks of roller coaster action is any indicator, Mr. Market will be up tomorrow. But, I'm not taking the bait.

    I realize this morning I know very little when it comes to this market stuff. Thought I knew more. My FOMO is definitely eating at me. Missed the bottom and now missing the up up and away. A lot of the news hasn't been good, jobless claims, layoffs, deaths from the virus, companies failing or having serious financial problems, hell I have friends laid off that can't get unemployement, yet the market just keeps going up. I know it can be forward looking but this is a bit ridiculous. Money being tossed at the markets and "help" to some of these businesses. I have listened to the talking heads on TV and reading a few articles. Been looking at different charts and trying to understand which direction we may go each day but I think all this is making me more confused. Everyone is saying we will re-test the lows. I know the timing of these processes do not happen overnight and sometimes it takes months for things to shake out. But very frustrating to be on the sidelines trying to get in on a down day when it keeps going up.

    Yea, I'm questioning whether I'll be sitting on the sidelines all of next week too waiting on that retest of the March lows while the S Fund is going up, up, up! This is maddening.

    Do what you think is best for your own risk tolerance and retirement goals. But, do keep that FOMO in check. Do not act upon emotion, or you will get burned.

    Then, of course, is capitulation and the almost guaranteed change in direction!

    It's most definitely an emotional day for me, but I have comfort in knowing that I have preserved capital through this whole time. It's emotional for me because, and I don't wish the worst for anybody, so please don't misinterpret what I'm saying, I've been looking for an opportunity like this since 2018 in order to boost my TSP one good time before I retire in 2021. It feels like I'm missing it by being to cautious. Of course, this is nothing new to most that would happen upon my words. The struggle is REAL

    Had my hands on the trigger today but couldn't make any moves. I'm going to sit tight and try to be patient for a move lower. I'm not losing any money but I'm not making any gains. That is the frustrating part. I have plenty of time before I retire so I could probably dip in here and there but I'm just not confident in any move right now. I'm not speculating on where we go from here. I could guess and say we go lower into May or late May but just a guess. But with that feeling I'm hoping it comes true and I get an opportunity in the next coming weeks to move back into other funds. So for now still 100% G.

    Looking back had multiple chances to move out of G but FOMO kept me from doing it. If that makes sense. Was hesitant because I thought we were going to be heading back down at some point. I realize now I missed out. Pre-markets up nicely again this morning. Yes the day could end down but as of right now it looks nice for those in anything other than G. Congrats to those who have made money since the March lows. Markets have had an awesome bounce and look like nothing is going to slow it down. I guess I'll move some over soon, lol waiting on a pull back, hell maybe I'll be waiting until the next crisis. I feel so stupid.

    Who would have thought the market would have moved so much higher so fast. I mean I get it the Fed is really to blame for part of it right? Makes me wonder where we would be if they hadn't stepped in. We would have had some what of a more normal recovery? IDK just makes me want to puke I missed all this move higher.

    Yes I have a ways to retire but that gain sure would have been nice.

    Have a good day everyone! Enjoy your ride if your in it.

    Then on the other side of FOMO you stay invested and ride the sharp blade right into the pits.
    May the force be with us.

    I know it's early in the month but anyone considering using an IFT today? Looking at some videos on the tube and of course checking out the boards here I am getting the feeling the markets will continue to move higher from here. I have been watching KR (Kendall Report) and he is talking about a pull back but then move higher into the 3380-3460 space. He is talking about moves potentially taking weeks to materialize so this is not a 1 or 2 day move. So makes me think even I can get a 4 or 5% move higher that I should consider moving back to a C/S combo today with 1 of my moves.

    Thoughts? What are you doing today in your TSP or trading accounts? I am looking to perhaps making a move to add a couple stocks to my now empty portfolio but not sure about my TSP. Those 2 moves are so important.
