    Default TopNotch Account Talk

    Hey all, new to this forum.

    I am currently sitting at a 6.50% return for the year. All funds are in the G fund since last week Monday. Doing pretty well so far this year.

    Thinking about moving my funds back to C and S after this storm passes. Not sure if I should use my June IFT or July IFT to make this move.

    Welcome aboard, Top! Looks like your moves this year have been Top Notch.

    I would 2nd tsptalk's recommendation to join and record your IFTs in the AutoTracker. It's an excellent way of seeing your IFT gains/losses separate from your existing balance and contributions.

    Hey Tom, Not really sure how the auto tracker works or how to set it up. Is there a video that explains how to use it?

    No video but here's how it works...

    Create your account (Username should match forum username)

    TSP Talk AutoTracker

    Once that's done, enter your current account allocation as a percentage in each fund...

    https://www.tsptalk.com/tracker/tsp_user_menu.php - Choose "My IFT Allocation" from menu to input allocation.


    Use that menu to explore other members' data.

    Here's more AutoTracker menu choices... TSP Talk AutoTracker


    So any time you make an Interfund Transfer (IFT) in your TSP account, you can also enter it in our AutoTracaker and we'll track the returns.

    Hmm, seems hard to use. I get this message.

    Whoa! Your initial IFT has not processed yet. We can't proceed.Please contact the site administrator at support@tsptalk.com, and
    let him know what you are trying to do. We will get it taken care of.
    Thanks!

    I just use this spread sheet it seems to track things for me pretty well.

    Weekly Review for TopNotch.

    Markets took a slight step back this week. From a chart perspective we could see our second pullback for the year. Though I can't show my videos, I will try and describe what we did. Two weeks ago we moved all funds into the G fund. We did this to mitigate risk and damage to our portfolio it turned out to be a great move as markets are lower this week. This also puts us ahead of all funds for the TSP currently. Which means, yes, we are beating the markets! BUT... The year is only halfway over so we really can't claim that. The second part would be when do we put our funds back in? Aw that is the million dollar question. You can wait a certain amount of time, for a certain price, or wait for the tech picture to improve. We will wait until the end of next week to reinsert our funds if not sooner. We don't want to miss what we have gained. Which would be about a 2% advantage on the S and C funds. Questions? Let me know or hit me up on my YouTube channel.

    One benefit that I believe comes from using trackers like this site has are that it's easy to verifiably compare your performance to others.

    While others like you on the intrawebs post trades in advance, there is work involved in a viewer going back to verify that the posited returns are true and accurate.

    Also, one guy might think she's doing great just beating the G fund year after year...until she realizes the returns others are getting, for example.

    That just means your 1st allocation wasn't processed yet before you tried to make another change. Our deadline is 12:10 ET, 10 minutes after the TSP's deadline, and since you entered your 1st initial allocation Thursday evening, making a change on Friday wouldn't have worked. That's all.
