    All but 2 of the top 20 folks on autotracker (non-premium service) are full in. Seems you are in good company.

    The top folks on the AutoTracker are doing well, but it's not like the old days when the top folks would post their moves to help the rest of us decide if we wanted to take a chance or not. Sometimes we got lucky and sometimes we didn't.
    May the force be with us.

    Well, EricDeLee has posted all of his 2021 moves at least two weeks in advance and he is number 4 on the charts. His next planned move is 100% to I fund on Sept. 16....

    Very interesting. I was thinking of doing a similar move this month - noticing a pattern of dips in third week of the month for the last several months. Options expiration have something to do with it perhaps? Could be a coincidence but next expiration date happens to be 9/17. Or maybe there is another event around this period. But why I fund, I wonder? Maybe someone can elucidate?

    He is most likely using seasonal trading on the site TSPcalc or something similar.

    Should you google it near the middle left on the page you will see a block that says "Go to strategy" type in 84071. You will see what on the top left the "trading day" of the month in which you can make moves but if you are a paid member you will see an actual calendar at the bottom that tells you the exact calendar date to make the move. I'm not saying he is using this particular strategy but you will notice that even this strategy is trading almost in line with his past and future moves. For example he posted a moved into the C fund on 1 Sep so effective date of 2 Sep which is the 2nd trading day of the month September. His next move he said is 16 Sep which is the 11th trading day of the month (your remove weekends, holiday etc)

    Please note nothing is 100% fool proof so seasonal trading has it risks as well.

    Interesting. Walked in on my wife in the kitchen yesterday sitting at her laptop.

    She decided to sell a lot of her stocks. She says she's got some dogs which she wants to get rid of- but also saidf she thinks the market is about to tank.

    Call this the "jAMES' WIFE INDICATOR". She's a LOT better than me and knowing when to bail out-

    however- SHE SET ALL HER SELL'S AS "MARKET PRICE" AT THE OPEN THIS MORNING.

    iF OTHERS DO LIKE HER, THEN THE OPENING is going to be down this morning.


    Just thought I'd pout that out there.


    I'm also considering selling a bit myself- and moving to :

    1% in EACH OF THE ENTIRE CHOICES of TSP funds- from the G to the L2065.

    The intent is to be prepared to move BACK in *(thi sis my second move of the month) with the secret 1% move acroiss all 14 funds later, if that is appropriate. We shall see.


    Good luck.

    Does the 1% move still work? I thought someone had posted that it was not being accepted anymore? Not sure.

    It did the last time I played with it about six months ago. You can round UP to the next higher 1%. If you are at 0.87%, you can round up to 1% . If you are at 1.05%, you can round up to 2%. At least it worked for me last time. We shall see if it works this time.
    Anyway- I’m locked in now to the big spread. Wish me luck.

    Yes, the 1% round up move worked successfully for me. It gained me about $2,000 more in my account then had it not worked.

    I now have this tucked away solidly- note that it only works to round UP to the next higher full percentage.
