TSP Talk Plusis a Premium Service that will give subscribers access to the successful Plus TSP System, plus some "extras" not available to non-subscribers.
What TSP Talk Plus subscribers can expect:
While we will continue to post a free basic daily
Market Commentary, the new TSP Talk Plus service will go more in depth and analysis
including analysis and give our proprietary system signals. (Sample
TSP System: This system has been around for many years with a strong track record. Here is the system's return since 2006 through the date shown below...
TSP Talk Plus subscribers will get the System's buy and sell signals based on our proprietary indicators.
Email alerts will be sent to subscribers each week and we'll discuss and analyze the weekly results.
ETF System: For those who invest and trade outside the Thrift Savings Plan, TSP Talk Plus also has a very successful ETF System that generates weekly buy, sell, hold signals.
(More on ETFs)
Alert Updates: Occasional transaction email and text alerts will be
sent as needed. These will only be available to TSP Talk Plus subscribers.
Premium Forum Thread:
Subscribers will have access to a private thread in the TSP Talk Forums to discuss various market related topics and answer any questions you may have.
Forum Plus: Forum members who subscribe to TSP Talk Plus will get
addition privileges. Some of these extras include:
Larger Private Message (PM) inboxes
Images (and animated gif) can be used in signatures
4 line signatures, rather than 2
Reputation tab in user profile to view rep comments
AutoTracker Extras: Currently we have a courtesy window of 7 hours past the Transfer deadline (7PM ET) to enter late IFT's or make updates to your transaction1 in the AutoTracker. With
over 1000 members on the AutoTracker, after that window closes and the daily share prices have been updated, the manual database updates become too laborious. However, TSP Talk Plus subscribers will get an
extra 24 hours to make changes2.
50% Multi-Service Discount
The price of TSP Talk Plus will be $17.99 / month but
current active subscribers to RevShark's or Intrepid Timer's Premium Services will get 50% offand pay just $9 / month3
when they subscribe to Plus.
As posted below, the 2008 return is based on a revision made to the original system. 2008 was the only year affected by the revision and it turned a 38% loss by the original system, into a 6% loss. 1 - Simply entering a late IFT does not automatically get moved to the following business day. Any late entries must include a quick explanation in the comments line when entering the late IFT. (Ex: "For COB Thursday") If there's no explanation, it is assumed to be for the following business day.
2 - We still reserve the right to exclude updates to those who abuse this privilege. If you make a late change every time there is a 1% or 2% move in the stock market, we will assume you are trying to gain an advantage rather than trying to correct your allocation.
3 - If you cancel your subscription to Intrepid Timer or RevShark and no longer have an active subscription to one of those premium services, the TSP Talk Plus monthly subscription price may revert to $17.99 / month.
