    Still holding 100% G

    I bailed last month at 954, and looking back, I'm glad I did. Even the Obama luster hasn't held this market up. As far as I'm concerned this is just the beginning of a bad 2-3 years and I see no reason to play this market with the IFT limitations in place.

    My best to everyone here!

    JTH,
    Likewise, best wishes to you. Are you holding G or F?

    I admire many of you here and I'm saddened by our the recent turn of events. The best decision I've made this month is not to make one.

    I'm still sitting in G and I hope those who choose to take risk with the IFT limitations in place, prosper.

    As for me, I'm just not smart enough to make these plays...

    I'm not either. Thats why I'm only playing with 10%.

    Here are some interesting numbers to ponder (YMMV)

    Since 10 October 2007, the C-Fund has lost 49% of it's value.

    I've lost money since then and made a TSP loan that cut my balance down to less than half of what it is now. Yet if I bought the C-Fund today, I would own 85% of the shares I had owned back in October 2007!

    Now that's scary folks!

    And if you buy the C fund now you will accumulate shares much faster with your contribution - you should hope it takes at least three years to regain $17.50 a share - but I sincerely doubt we'll be that lucky because this fund is coiled to go back up as fast as it came down.

    I took a 25% dip into the C-Fund today

    Why you may ask? Because in the short-tem, I believe we are almost bled dry. I have lost all expectations of breaking even this year, so for now, I'll just squeeze out a nickle here and a dime there.

    Best to all my TSP friends!!!!

    -18.21% YTD

    I'm hoping even longer than that! But unlikely.

    Went back to the G-Fund today. I know it's only a 1 day play, but I'd rather scalp some quick gains and go back to the sidelines to wait things out. I still believe we have alot more pain to go through.

    I'm glad things worked out today. It seems my 1 day play from Friday to today gained me a quick 1.65%

    It's not much, but I'll gladly take it Now I'll quietly sit on the sidelines wating for next month's entry point. Best of luck to all!!!

    Good morning everyone!

    I've taken a 33% dip into the F-Fund today.

    My expectations are this market will break through it's previous lows and the F-Fund will reap the benefits. Once this has taken place, I'll use my last IFT to switch over to stocks, then make a gracful exit off the highs into the G-Fund before year's end. Hopefully Tom's December Seasonality Chart will serve as a guide for my next entry point into stocks.

    It's a simple stratigy and one I plan to use for the next few months.

    Best of luck & timing to everyone!

    Cheers... JTH
