I closed out the last part of 2017 in #16198, like many others. It was very good to us, and I like the combination of high mean and low std dev. However, the F fund is driving me nuts. It has been a pretty horrible investing experience any time the F fund rolls around in either the daily or seasonal strategies for the last couple of years. I'm not sure I can stomach it much longer. As a result, I'm thinking about switching to #19408. It has a sub-4 std dev and still a mean higher than 30, while limiting the F fund exposure to just 8% vs. 24%.

Other considerations: G fund returns aren't going up, so increased G fund exposure means less return but still no risk of losing money. I would like to see more I fund investment, though strategies with higher I fund tend to have higher std dev. Go figure!

Any thoughts anyone else could share on this? I know a few have been talking about limiting F fund exposure as well.
