    Re: Rod's Account Talk

    Yeah... I'm hoping for a repeat of 2008. Sensing a disturbance in "the force", I ducked for cover on 23 Jan 2008. Although I waited in (G) for about 8 months prior to the crash, I did not lose one...

    Reportedly, there were no Americans killed during the missile attacks. Good news. But, I think that President Trump's decision not to address the nation tonight will create/fuel a level of...

    It's going to be an interesting day, tomorrow. As of now (as you all know), futures are bleak. This (Iran missile attacks) might be the catalyst for a pullback. But, is it the catalyst for the...

    Re: nasa1974's Account Talk

    Ever since the two IFTs per month rule went into effect, it's been a lot more difficult to time the market. You know how well I have done as a buy-n-holder these past 10 years. So far, 29.95% for...

    Well, it has been another decent buy-n-hold year for me: 20.34%, according to my TSP tracker (the site's tracker shows 20.30%). Once again, I consider...

    Tom, why was that not on our radar back then? :pat:
