I don't see any/most of it happening, but it still makes me a little nervous.

Index Funds
by  United States JimB | 4 Comments

I am interested in indexed fund annuity but to be honest I don’t know much about it. I have read you can never suffer a loss just gains. If anyone can share what you might know about Index Funds I would appreciate it.

A New Seasonal Pattern?
by  United States TSPsmart | 9 Comments

A couple of point outs.

First I posted some thoughts on the best TSP Fund now.

I also found a non-typical seasonal pattern this last year. I am sure there is some flow of funds that explains it that I will discover in the future but for now we just have a pattern to ponder.

ImageTSP Almanacs, so I think it is a short-term pattern.

Anyway, something to watch for... or step out of the way.

"Safest" Daily
by  United States nrialto | 10 Comments

Greetings everyone.

I hope I'm not beating a dead TSP horse here, but I'm looking for some opinions on a Daily Strategy that is considered "safe" in the long-run. I understand a strategy with few negative monthly returns isn't likely to have huge gains at year's end, but I'm thinking long-term.

I was hoping some folks could offer some strategies they like as "safe."

Upcoming summer
by  United States cswift01 | 8 Comments

Dear all,

I'm curious to know your market strategies for the summer time.

I haven't made up my mind as of yet, however, I'm looking at maybe placing a good amount of my investments in a money market account during the summer. I had first thought about a 3 month CD or some treasury bills, but given the upcoming increase(s) in the rate I am not too excited about those options.

The volatility I'm sure will continue throughout the summer and I don't expect the market to do much after May 2 when most dailies leave the market. I also don't expect much to transpire before the middle of October.

What are you guys going to do?
