    ok, I am currently at 40% S, 25% C, 25% I, 5% F, and 5% G and figure I would take a look at and follow:
    10 Month Modified SMA Method (M-SMA)

    So, I will probably be all in S in about 11 days and ride the roller coaster from there.

    Let's see what happens !!

    Having direction and trading with purpose is a valuable concept, I'm glad to see you're getting settled in.

    I am not sure about direction JTH, but purpose I have...

    I have been reading a alot over the last week or so and the craziness in the news is the reason I have moved all my stocks (except my play-doh) into mutuals/ETFs in a holding pattern. Since finding this site, I question whether that is such a good idea. I have never done well on day trading, only so-so on medium term holds, and mediocre on buy and hold.

    I am just not sure how much time I want to invest in my investments... I guess I assumed that if I diversified correctly, that over the long term, my overall portfolio would do good. However, as I do not have 40 years, maybe a little manipulation is in order to catch up on all my lost time...

    So, I think, despite the news, I will try out DAW's 10 M-SMA plan and see what happens since it only requires a quick test twice a month and the "impartial" decision is made and I move on. Not a lot of time, nor a lot of ulcers...

    Just my two cents

    Oops, misread my allocations...

    I am actually at 5% G, 5% F, 40% C, 25% S, 25% I

    Not sure, but I am really wanting to move it all to S now instead of waiting until the mid-month IFT.

    Hmmm, is now a buying opportunity to put it all in S and get more gains or will it keep going down...

    How does anyone make sense of all this data...

    Also, should I make my contribution allocations the same or put it all in G and then move it to the appropriate fund during the bi-montly IFT???

    every time i make an interfund transfer i also change my contribution allocations to match, keeps it simpler in my head. there are good justifications for having contributions go to a particular fund to, called dollar cost averaging.

    me? retirement is a long way off and not really real at this point, other than this idea about actually getting there someday. i was raised to work until you can't work and then you die.

    so it's all just black ones and zeros on white paper as far as i'm concerned. has no real value until you turn it to green ones and zeros on linen and trade for something tangible over the counter.

    of course i'd like to see the balance go up, but i will work to eat even if it does.

    Well, I wasn't sure where else to put this and it doesn't deserve another thread.

    Should I or should I not ignore James48843? It is a rhetorical question, but we are on such opposite ends of the political spectrum that he drives me up the wall... It makes me say things that I shouldn't... some I am sorry for, others not so much...

    Anyway, to make this TSP related. I am really nervous about the whole market situation and don't know if I should throw everything into S like I was planning... and if so, should I do it on Monday or wait until Tue/Wed (mid-month IFT) ???

    I know no one will tell me what to do, but advice is always appreciated.

    I say put it all in the C fund and relax. The C fund is going to outperform going forward.

    you can always join up over at beltway talk and instead of ignoring him you could try to intelectualy kick his ass. careful though, that guy is hard to tack down even with two hammers and a box of 16d, but at least maybe danger dave could get you a discount.

    tell 'em burrocrat sent ya.

    But is this still true?

    And, if I move stuff now, would I be able to recover my losses?
