    I know I will never be a TSP millionaire, but yesterday I hit one of my magic numbers that tells me to take a pause. I guess it all depends on what happens today. But my dilemma is do I take a chance and wait to the end of the week and then go to the lily pad. Does October follow the norm it has since 1988 or does it break new ground? Dang I hate two IFT's and a noon cut off.
    Good luck everyone.
    May the force be with us.

    I'm in at 70% reluctantly, and was in at 40%, but I'm leaning towards this not being a typical October. Due to the obvious, of course, but also it being an election year and that things in the news can so easily shake the markets, I'm choosing to try and withstand the volatility that will undoubtedly come with it. Obviously, I'm betting on more good news than bad, but I feel I've got a little edge in that the guy with the bully pulpit really needs to see this market soar in the next days and weeks!

    I like the idea of a strong stock market but that doesn't really relate to a strong economy right now. Too many people still out of work. Plus a strong market helps your larger companies to reinvest and increase employees, but doesn't necessarily relate to bars and restaurants. So in our current environment a strong market is not a strong economy and I'm not sure why certain people are using that analogy?

    Maybe so but overall its a good sign not bad...we'll know more after the election what part of the economy is honest and what part is political I think.

    I haven't decided what to do yet, but leaning to staying 100% "S" today and making a move tomorrow because of the long weekend.

    The obvious answer to your question is, people are easily led astray, willingly almost, to keep the status quo.

    Ok, So I would like to say congrats to coolhand and bquat. Both have over a million views. But the member with the most posts is running a distant fourth. A past member holds the number one spot for the most views and that is Birchtree. I miss BT.

    I did a quick survey so maybe I missed someone. Anyway here are the numbers.

    Birchtree is number one with 1,781,098 views

    bquat has 1,091,436 views with 10,003 posts.

    coolhand has 1,005,410 views with 6,419 posts.

    nnuut has 846,853 views with 62,986 posts.
