For the Longs (or Those Who Got Caught)
by  United States Heckler511 | 4 Comments

I'm almost certain I'll be getting out today. I was really hoping to get back to even on the year, however:

1) I think there will be a short setup this week - either today or more likely tomorrow afternoon

2) I think we chop through much of September and volatility stays high for a couple weeks (i.e. we don't get back to previous highs...yet)

3) I'm going out of town tonight and likely won't be able to make any moves tomorrow (plus I could use the rest - these last several days have been difficult if you're in the market still)

4) Any other thoughts... what am I missing? :?:

Rate Hike or More QE?
by  United States Reese99 | 14 Comments

A simple question, really. Does the Fed move forward with a rate hike in September as promised (and I posit that recent action is pricing in a rate hike), or do they chicken out and prop the markets up for a while longer with a new round of QE?

Descending triangle forming?
by  United States - Virginia TSPKip | 2 Comments

In the 15 minute chart of the SPY over the past 6 market days suggests the development of a Descending Triangle which if holds within the upper trend line may be the harbinger of a further decline.

Fantsy TSP

Does the fantasy TSP act just like the real one? As in can only make 2 moves a month, but can always move back to G?
Thanks in advance,

Please forgive my previous bullishness
by  United States Secpon | 8 Comments

Forgive me father for I have sinned. I got into the C-Fund during the most bearish months of the year when all indicators were screaming for a correction, and I had next to no idea what I was doing. I violated the first commandment of thine only son Warren Buffet, who said, "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful," or something like that. I put my faith in the media, who all said this is good for a bull market, and I let the devil himself, Jim Cramer, whisper poison in my ear.

I'm cutting my losses and moving to the F-Fund. A VIX golden cross occurred yesterday, and the S&P 500 is trading so far below it's moving averages, with the relative strength index and MACD all indicating a downward trajectory. An S&P death cross is almost a foregone conclusion if you ask me. A couple more days and we're in bear country.

My only hope is that the S&P regains some territory tomorrow before the transfer goes through, so I can maybe, just maybe regain 1% or 2% of my piddly TSP.

God help us... everyone.
