    You may want to use the FRO for that. It looks like I may get a little cheaper first.

    C is cheap and S is really cheap right now.

    You're worse than I am with all these transactions. Are you keeping track of your returns?

    I basically print out my balance each day to see what I gained- keeping it simple.

    I HATE math, so I don't get fancy about it with percentages and all.

    I just use Quicken to tell me what my IRR (Internal Rate of Return, annualised) is for any given period.

    I have to manually update Quicken and the FRO spreadsheet; I do not want to update another thing.

    Also, you have to take your contributions into account; you cannot just take the beginning balance and ending balance to calculate your gain/loss.

    Of course... I take everything into account.

    Merely subtracting your contributions from the end-of-monthbalance won't compensate, either, the rate will still be inaccurate.

    Although I should, I don't do that. Mainly for the sake of simplicity for me and foranyone watching, I treat my account returns as if I never add money. Just like the $100,000 hypothetical balances we use in the members' accounts.

    Who said I only do it at the end of the month???

    I do it daily.

    To reitterate, I merely look at my balance from day to day, tracking it that way.

    You must understand Rolo, some of us aren't as technical about it as you are with graphs and all. That's a cool thing, and I'm not knocking it. But,as Tom stated, I like simplicity.

    Baha! nono...Quicken does all the work for me. Simplicity is right...I hate math, take too long to do it, and do not want to fiddle with spreadsheets unless I absolutely have to. (copy/paste TSP share prices into the FRO is about it)

    I input my TSP share values about every other day or so to update my TSP and I click "Update" to automatically update everything else online. I just click on stuff already in Quickenfor all the pretty charts and such.
