    Re: PessOptimist's Account Talk

    Re: PessOptimist's Account Talk

    Another comment on deciding to make a move in the TSP. If it is up at 1200EDT I donít want to miss gains. If it is down at 1200EDT I donít want to sell at a loss. By 1600EDT it will be wherever it...

    Re: PessOptimist's Account Talk

    Up down. Like a merry go round roundÖ

    The idea of having a whopping 20% in equities is to only offset the withdrawals a household member insists are needed. So I watch it daily. I wish I had...
