    Re: Sensei's account talk

    Happy 2019! It's been a while since I've done anything with the old TSP allocation. I've been wearing sticky pants for the past 6 months, and boy am I chafed! Time to hang one cheek out. IFT in...

    Re: Sensei's account talk

    Almost 3 months later, and I'm still sitting in this allocation. Can't say it's been either a success or a failure, but it's kept me from worrying excessively. I'm tempted to buy back in, but...

    IFT COB: 30C, 50S, 20I

    I'm chasing gains, I know, but I want back in with both IFTs for the month of December. My foray into the F fund was not a success. Oh well. Still got a couple more...

    Re: Sensei's account talk

    Hey everyone! Still alive and kickin' here in Okinawa. Job changed (for the better, I might add), and getting a little slower and greyer, but doing quite well these days.

    I'm making my first IFT...

    The market has been on a tear since the election. Looking at the charts, I'm thinking this might be the beginning of the left shoulder of an H&S formation. Tom's commentary suggested a possible...

    Hey Birchtree! No disappearing. I've given up and plan to go full-bull ahead for the rest of my life. I've got it all in S fund now, but maybe I should shift some into large caps. What say YOU?

    Thanks for the advice, all. The way I'm going, it's bound to make very little difference in the end, anyway. :/

    Things are good with the wife. Thanks for asking! She'll be on meds for quite a few more years, and they have some side effects, but nothing like chemo. All the tests have been coming back clean....

    How's everything going, TSPtalkers? I've turned my back on finances, and haven't made any good moves recently. TSP.gov shows me with a PSP of -13%. OUCH! Trying to be patient with a premium. ...

    Re: TSP Loan Repayment

    Dusting off an old thread that I started a couple years ago. I am nearing the pay-off of my loan. Along the way, I re-amortized to $550/mo to get it paid off sooner. I now have $3346.43 left,...

    Oh man, tsp.gov showed me with a -1.17% return last year. And I've lost even more since 2016 began. What's up with the world? Everything sucks. Stocks, oil, precious metals, etc. I guess I'll...

    Part of me wanted to sell at the end of last week, but I can't get over my obsession of starting the month in stocks. Due to the IFT limitations, you know? So I'm hanging on for another week. ...

    I really have no clue, but usually corrections like this don't resolve themselves with a V-bottom. So, yeah, I guess my bet would be more churn before moving up again. However, whatever rally this...

    I remember a week back in 2011, I think it was September, when the S&P had been down more than 2% on two consecutive days. Tom pointed out in his commentary that this almost always resulted in a...

    So, the S-fund has been up all 4 days since I've been holding it. Friday looked liked a negative reversal though, so I expect at least a day of red to start August. You can't be on the winning side...

    I don't blame you for avoiding the F fund. I've been 50% F for a while now, and I'm ready to dump it. Actually thinking about trying to catch the falling knife and jump back into stocks. Bad idea?...
