    Maybe he and Birchtree have retired and met up in Mexico, like in Shawshank Redemption

    Hi everyone, time flies, I'm sorry to not be here to enjoy the forum.

    Small updates, I retired from USAF 2 years ago, currently fully retired and living in Europe.

    I have been actively managing trading/investing accounts, but haven't really touched the TSP, pretty much been sitting 20G/40C/40S.

    Now that we have a proper bear market, it's time for me to dust off the cobb webs and get back into a battle rhythm. I can't believe all the changes to the TSP website, I'll need to do a lot of reading here to catch up on things.

    Cheers.... Jason

    Welcome back. Didn't retire from the Air Force but served 70-74.
    May the force be with us.

    Welcome back Jason (JTH).! Congrats on that retirement living. You did very well with that allocation for years. Tough times are here now and now waiting for recession and inflation to bring on panic selling to mark the bottom. Who knows for sure when that is but I’m using the early 70’s inflation/recession as a template which thus far is working well. We should bottom 1st quarter of next year with the new bull for the spring. Been watching the 10yr bond, VIX, and FED moves/discussions to gauge progress. So far…the world is paying more for everything as inflation broadens and job numbers indicate the FED is still trying to catch up. 🤢🤢🫣 Can you tell us anything about what your experiencing in Europe? Thanks!

    Yea, inflation here in Poland is about 17%, there's lot's of Europeans on adjustable rate mortgages, getting stiffed with the interest rate hikes, some landlords have raised rent while still under contract with the tenant. The war here has skyrocket all utilities, Poland still has some households that burn coal for heat, it's nasty, a cold winter is going to be a nightmare for everyone. The influx of Ukrainians has stabilized, but it has strained government services.

    For the moment, my only goal is to continue to raise cash, and trickle buy, it's been a crazy 3 years!

    Thanks, I'm glad to be back, I didn't even realize how long I was gone, really got burned out those last few years in the military. It's good to see some of the same folks still here, it's a very dedicated group

    Sounds tough all over including worsening conditions in the USA. Thanks for the writeup. Looks like we have a ways to go before we dig out of this hole. 👍😬

    2 years ago I started managing one of my dad's accounts, now he's asked me to take over his other accounts.

    After reviewing his mutual funds, it was upsetting to see his portfolio's allocation and expenses. His financial advisor hasn't contacted him in years, and the expense ratios are criminal. All his funds have underperformed their Vanguard equivalents, but no worries, his financial advisor still gets paid regardless of his lack of performance... So now, I need to help him gets those assets transferred (avoid getting taxed) and get them back into the markets so he can regain the performance he's already lost.

    I'm all for buy and hold, but sometimes folks like my dad need to do a review, ask questions, compare cost, and be willing to make changes. My dad is doing well, he doesn't need these funds since he has a pension, but not everyone is as fortunate as he is.
