    Default Market Questions.

    Is there a listing available that specifies when business report earnings, forecast, etc?.
    Specifically retail?
    Thanks!

    Try the "This Month is Stocks" tread, I post the earning and economic calender there every week. If you click on the highlighted word "earnings" or "economic" is will bring up a window from briefing.com that will give you the calendar of events. The earnings calendar also gives you what the companies guidance is.

    OK the earning hyperlink is not working on the first page try the second page.

    Here it is when the link works right.

    Earnings

    If it is not what you're looking for let me know as I have other sources.

    Market Question
    How does the Russell 2000 compare to the Wilshire 4500?. In what segment of the market does the Russell 2000 fit? (Mid cap? Small Cap?)

    Thanks, Al

    good question...I knew the 2000 was small caps, but was then thinking that the 1000 was smaller caps

    I would further surmise that the Russel 3000 is closest to wilshire 4500. A Wilshire 5000 does exists and is Wilshire's 'total market' The Wilshire 4500 is the WIlshire 5000 minus the S&P 500

    OK a little advice . . . and i realize answers will be across the board but I'm a listener (er reader)
    I have other investments but I have 700 in tsp and all is in G fund and has been there before the collapse so I'm lucky from that point of view.
    I'm gonna be 62 in a month and don't plan on retiring 'til 66.
    Should I stay conservative and stay in "G" Turtle wins the race maybe or does inflation eat my gains. Most of you folks are smarter than me . . . please share various sides and what I should be looking for down the road and how much should I get back in if at all?
    Thanks
