    Did you make 1%/month in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2008, or 2011? If you did I want your trading system and will give you half of what is in...

    Why try to time such dinky moves. Really, who cares about 1% moves one way or another.
    Being in the market during a bull run absolutely dwarfs the affect of avoiding a 0.23% 'crash' - or even...

    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.

    Not furloughed.

    The longer it lasts the less likely furloughed employees will get back pay. This is a stupid way to do business. But, who can say a group of failed lawyers ain't stupid!!!
