    Hi Rod. Thanks for listing & discussion on "Summertime" market history. I really like the 1 Peter verse you listed. God Bless you & all.

Hold your positions if you're in... and don't sell at a loss.

    God Bless

    Just providing an update for the New Year.

    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 myself the "guinea pig" for a buy-n-hold strategy because I've been holding (as opposed to folding ) since I bought in low after the the 2008/2009 correction: 60(C), 40(S). It has paid off quite nicely.
    My total TSP returns since then: 130.42%

    God Bless!

    Happy New Year Rod.

    Pretty much been a buy and holder myself.

    Good numbers by the way.

    I went back and looked and from 2009 to 2017 it looks like I did 98%

    Can't beat a good Bull Market. Let's hope it stays this way for a little while longer.

    Good luck in 2018.
    May the force be with us.

    I sat out that entire time. I would be half way to a second million if I had followed your lead...instead I'm well, no where close....

    Happy New Year to you as well! You've also done quite well!

    My best buy-n-hold year so far has been 2013 when my return was a whopping 35.03%. I just wish I was in a position where I could contribute to my TSP. If I was, then I would convert it to a Roth. That wasn't available when I retired from the USAF on 1 Sep 2011.

    I think 2013 was a good year for most of us. I had a return just over 37%. Wish I could repeat that a few more times.

    I've been in a buy-n-hold of 60 (C) and 40 (S) for... can you believe it... over 10 years! (2 Nov 2009) Since then, (without any further contributions because I am retired) my account has gained 281%. That averages out to be 28% per year. Not too shabby for a buy-n-hold strategy.

    Because I do not trust what 2020 has in store for Mr. Market, now is the time to bank those profits into (G). Therefore, effective 24 Dec 2019, I will be 100 (G).

    In doing so, I may miss out on some more gains in this long-running Bull. But, I do fear it will soon come to an abrupt end. I missed the 2008 crash altogether. My plan is to miss the impending next one too, and then buy in low as I did in 2009.

    Have a blessed Christmas!

    According to my own TSP Talk Returns Calculator, my return for 2019 is 29.96%. I am happy to have beaten the S&P 500 which ended the year @ 28.88%.

    Have a safe and happy New Year! God Bless!

    Question Re: Rod's Account Talk

    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 correction I've been anticipating? Awaiting/pending "damage assessments" will help to determine what our response/retaliation will be, which will steer Mr. Market in one direction or the other.
