    Not really. $7 a trade so $14 total to get in and out. I'll gladly pay $14 to make $5k.
    TSP: 2007=6.4%, 2008=(39.95%), 2009=30.96%, 2010=17.04% , 2011=(4.92%), 2012=17.74%, 2013=26.58%, 2014=5.39%
    TSP Talk: 2015=???

    By the way, I'm not sure if you know but that 3 day settlement just means you can't sell anything you bought with your prior sale before the 3 days.

    Example:

    Sell $1000 worth of ABC.

    Buy $1000 worth of XYZ that same day (allowed).

    Can't sell XYZ until the 3rd day.
    I very much want to pull all my tsp money out and put it into my Vanguard account but I am worried about what that might cost me. If I move it directly into a roth IRA, I suppose then maybe nothing right?
    11.80% for 2012, 24.79% for 2013, -5.13% for 2014 , 4.94% for 2015 WTF?, -0.04% for 2016 , 13.09% for 2017======= 8.23% six year average

    Fidelity just lowered their commissions to $4.95. I assume others will follow.

    And of course robinhood.com is free.
