    I don't think you need snail mail and notarized stuff to get a loan on your TSP. Kinda odd. I got a small loan in 2007 and don't remember anything but asking for it and getting the money the next...

    Re: amoeba's Account Talk

    Kinda depends on your time horizon.

    A 4.5% decline is worth accepting when you have the horizon to attain the normal 10% return over longer periods of time. If you need the assets in 5 years you...

    Stay away from those Dead Cats. They bounce so hard and so high they may hit you on the head before you can react. In all seriousness, you cannot catch today's upturn so why risk October...

    Why try to time such dinky moves. Really, who cares about 1% moves one way or another.

    Re: Asset allocation at TSP...

    That is a high risk allocation for someone within five years of retirement.

    Just guessing, but I would hanker that such an allocation would have lost 35% peak to trough in 2008/9.
