    Really. May just park in the G-fund for awhile and see how things shake out rest of June. If things get really bad in June that may create some buying opportunities. Time will tell.

    Comments anyone? Thanks!
    Ok, I have the F Fund below an 8 month (Sep 18) previous low. The F Fund needs to kick butt like tomorrow or we can loose the long term:

    I really don't like to hear "lower lows". Those are "red flags". I hope tomorrow brings an upward trend.

    Thanks Bquat.

    So is Greenspan saying, in effect, be wary (for our purposes) of the F-fund?

    Bonds (F-fund) is rallying as the 10-year Treasury yield is testing multi-year lows. How low can it go?

    Look at bonds go! Another nice rally for the F-fund today.. There's an open gap and a head and shoulder head test at 106.25, which may be the upside target here...




    And the 10-year yield is testing the 50-day EMA...

    Can someone explain how and when one should choose F fund over G fund? Don't understand F fund very well but hate to just park in G fund if there is some potential in F fund. Especially during this crazy crisis that involves government stimulus and possibility of deflation economy. Thx in advance

    I'll be corrected if I 'm off base here. My understanding is that the "G" fund are government bonds that have a fixed rate set by the Treasury. The "F" fund is a grouping of long term and short term bonds (3 year and 10 year as an example) that are traded on the open market and causes their price to vary daily.
    May the force be with us.

    Default F Fund

    Eleee325 - For me, I like to use the “F” instead of the “G” when we are in a general period of falling interest rates, as it appears to me that the F performs better that the G in those times.

    One word of caution- that at times of crazy uncertainty over market direction and instability, the “F” fund doesn’t always act the way you would expect it, as sometimes large flows of money into and out of those bonds, can adversely affect the value/pricing of the shares. I’ve gotten my fingers slapped several times over the years when those interest rates SHOULD have produced a nice expected gain for me, and then I realize I’ve been had after the bell, when the TSP prices it at something other than what made sense to me.

    If you are looking for safety, stick with the G.

    If you are looking for better performance, then do everything you can to understand what stocks make up each of the C, S, and I funds, and the bonds underlying the F fund.

    Best of luck to you- because sometimes, luck can play into the mix too.

    “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me. “
