Post subject:  Just opened a Vanguard Roth IRA...

I have seven years until my minimum retirement age to figure out how it compares to my Roth TSP. Comparing, meaning using a the equivalent Vanguard funds to mimic my Daily Seasonal Strat I'm using. I think that's going to be enough time to really see how it does.

I didn't put a lot of money in there, just enough to open it up and establish it. I'm sort of excited to see how my rates of return are if I follow my daily with it.

Right now I only have $6,497 for a Roth TSP balance, BUT I am now set at 100% Roth TSP for deposits and I'm at max contribution. So... at least $18,500/year will be deposited in there for the next 7 years totaling $129,500. Then of course your looking at compounding interest from now until then with the buildup.

If all works out... the plan is to transfer my entire Roth TSP balance over there immediately upon separation from the fed so my monthly draw is from Traditional only, and my Roth TSP (now IRA) has a chance to continue to grow from 50 - 59.5 when it's acceptable to withdraw any of it without penalty.
