I haven't checked my real TSP yet, but our fantasy TSPs are showing a 2.8% increase for Friday, September 19, 2014!

Capitulation in Precious Metals
by  United States dcramer29 | 3 Comments

Gold and silver has been selling off the past few weeks. Particularly silver, made a lower low this week, and was down over 3% today. Silver can not even be mined at the cost that you can buy it today. Gold prices are close to what it's mining costs are.

The precious metals to equities ratios hit values that occurred back in 2007.

I think accumulating precious metals shares is a great strategy at the moment, especially with the mining companies currently priced at generational lows.

Meanwhile, the typical equity indices seem overheated. I base that statement off of Robert Schiller's CAPE index, which is suggesting values only seen prior to three different recessions/depressions. 1929, 2000, and 2007.

I'll leave you with this video. Not saying that this guy is going to be 100% accurate, but he seems to thoroughly understand the physical aspect of supply and demand in gold and silver. His predictions are eye opening. Scroll down this link to watch the interview with Harvey Organ.

The FED speaks
by  United States - Florida chief04010 | 7 Comments

Ok, I want some of you chart guys to tell me what today means. As far as I can see it looks like the FED just played a "PSYCH" gag on wall street.

HUGE MOVE is coming soon...maybe starting tomorrow.
by  United States dcramer29 | 23 Comments

US equity markets are consolidating like crazy. Particularly the S&P, DOW, and NASDAQ.

I could be very wrong...but I'm going to stay out of the way and hang in the G-fund.

Tomorrow's FED announcement focused on interest rates is going to cause the markets to erupt one way or the other.......I think.

Regarding my brokerage account, I'm playing the gold miners. They've been beaten down to historic lows, and this commodity has got to turn around soon...especially given the money supply vs gold price ratios.

FYI - Median YTD Leader Board Return: 3.36% (15 SEP 2014)
by  United States - Pennsylvania Sptms2086 | 3 Comments

FYI:

As of close-of-market on 15 SEP 2014, the median Year-to-Date Leader Board return is 3.36%. In other words, half of the Leader Board participants have returns above 3.36%, & and half have returns below 3.36%. This is an indicator of how the overall TSP participants are faring this year so far.

Market Direction
by  United States dcramer29 | 15 Comments

If the $emw (small caps) leads the $SPX (large caps)...then another decent pullback is getting ready to break out.

SPX is consolidating nicely signaling the potential for a big move. The EMW has already started breaking down...-0.90% today.

Going to hang out in the G for a few days and try to jump on a pull back once the EMW gets close to it's 200 day moving average.

Despite waiting for the S fund to hug the 200 day moving average, I will go into the C fund as it seems less volatile to the downside compared to the smaller caps.
