I fund 6/23/17
by  United States - Ohio Scarfinger | 1 Comment

I am trying to follow the "clapper" seasonal strategy. Hence forth a move to the "I" fund is coming for July. Also keeping an eye on the "tmj100" fashioned after Timboslice's past moves.

I decided to go "I" early based on it bouncing up from the 50 day moving average the previous two times. Crossing my fingers, hoping that this pattern continues. If it tanks I will be riding it out from now and through most of July. I may jump to "F" a little early, before August, because I am going on vacation the last week of July.

I made this chart back on Jan 6th:

Please support H.R. 2929....
by  United States ArrieS | 2 Comments

Please support H.R. 2929, the Federal Employee Combat Zone Tax Parity Act of 2017.

I'm surprised at how many people think Federal Employees serving combat zones are not taxed.

The truth is we are fully taxed on every penny. While I have no complaint that the military isn't taxed and wouldn't care if that was the only exception, but it is not. Non-Government civilians employed overseas also enjoy a tax write-off of the first $101,300 of income for 2016.

This is granted because the belief is they are paying income tax and VAT to the country they are living in. But countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, etc do not have VAT taxes or income taxes. So American contract workers paid by the US Government are enjoying a massive tax write-off. This write-off is so large, it is even greater than any member of the military enjoys which is capped at $98,665.20.

I hope you'll take 5 minutes and use the link below to write your representative in support of this bill.

A question was asked" Should your Account Distribution ( G-50% C-50%) and your Contribution Allocation be the same?" When I asked everyone their positions we all had the same answer we left it all in the G-Fund to feel safe. We welcome your feed back. I've talked to them about TSP Center before now they can signup and see what it's all about and read the Forums and be better informed.

Strength and Mood
by  United States Tomanyiron | 103 Comments

I’m presenting an additional chart. Something that has been on my mind for a while, the market has moods. And it’s often reflected in volatility. But volatility alone seemed incomplete. So I have combined volume, and price momentum in the calculations. I have high hopes that this will be less lagging and more leading of price movements.

This “Mood Factor” is meant for stocks in general. Not as a, “is the S fund better than the C fund now” type questions. The “Strength Factor” might be better for that kind of decisions. I have plans to update both daily. And each will have its own “signature” range.

The complete formula is beyond the scope of this post. However the formula will not change for either of these indexes, as time goes by. I want them to stay true, no matter what they say.

I’m not presenting this as the ultimate trading indicator. I have no illusions. I see it only as another tool. I don’t have the skills or patience to backtest it further than what you see. This is the last 33 trading days. I made the calculations for each day over the past week. Over the weekend I checked it for errors. Then I plugged the numbers in and voila… this is it.

The purple line is the daily mood.
The darker purple line is mood's trend line.
The green line is C fund's performance.
The darker green line is C fund's trend.

Look it over, what do you see? I noticed a couple of things that I thought were interesting.
