The FED speaks
by  United States - Florida chief04010 | 5 Comments

Ok, I want some of you chart guys to tell me what today means. As far as I can see it looks like the FED just played a "PSYCH" gag on wall street.

HUGE MOVE is coming soon...maybe starting tomorrow.
by  United States dcramer29 | 22 Comments

US equity markets are consolidating like crazy. Particularly the S&P, DOW, and NASDAQ.

I could be very wrong...but I'm going to stay out of the way and hang in the G-fund.

Tomorrow's FED announcement focused on interest rates is going to cause the markets to erupt one way or the other.......I think.

Regarding my brokerage account, I'm playing the gold miners. They've been beaten down to historic lows, and this commodity has got to turn around soon...especially given the money supply vs gold price ratios.

FYI - Median YTD Leader Board Return: 3.36% (15 SEP 2014)
by  United States - Pennsylvania Sptms2086 | 3 Comments


As of close-of-market on 15 SEP 2014, the median Year-to-Date Leader Board return is 3.36%. In other words, half of the Leader Board participants have returns above 3.36%, & and half have returns below 3.36%. This is an indicator of how the overall TSP participants are faring this year so far.

Market Direction
by  United States dcramer29 | 8 Comments

If the $emw (small caps) leads the $SPX (large caps)...then another decent pullback is getting ready to break out.

SPX is consolidating nicely signaling the potential for a big move. The EMW has already started breaking down...-0.90% today.

Going to hang out in the G for a few days and try to jump on a pull back once the EMW gets close to it's 200 day moving average.

Despite waiting for the S fund to hug the 200 day moving average, I will go into the C fund as it seems less volatile to the downside compared to the smaller caps.

What is "Account Balance by Contribution" ??
by  United States T-Rex | 9 Comments

2014 09 13

What is "Account Balance by Contribution" ??

What IT IS NOT...Account Balance By Contribution IS NOT a breakdown running balance of total deposits into each fund from the account start date.

How do I see this.
I have made different contributions to different funds at different times...
...therefore I would have some percentage of total account balance in each total.
I can switch the DATE and click "GO"
Last week I had adjusted my interfund alternate fund reflect $0.00

So my question is....
What logical viewpoint would I have by looking at a Snapshot of my Account from the perspective of a "DATE" when I click "GO" ...
...the data returned to me is not representative of what has "ACTUALLY" contributed to those funds.

Employee Traditional; Agency Auto; Agency Matching appear to be a reverse calc of the "REAL" "Total" and nothing more...which were derived from my "DISTRIBUTION of Account" on the "Account Balance By Fund".

Employee Traditional > 63%

Agency Auto 1% > 7%

Agency Matching > 29%
TOTAL 100% (roughly..)

So, what am I missing.....??

If you go to Account Balance By Contribution it will use today's date (or the last known date with share prices) and generate totals at the bottom of the column for each Employee Traditional; Agency Auto; Agency Matching. ...




Surely I am not the only one to inquire about this...

There has to be some reason ...historically... that this tab is inside a plan that is managing Trillions of american dollars.... other than an attempt of ignorant intimidation toward clients.

frustrated, please provide insight as I hope I am having a KS error (Key-Seat error)

Bull Flag on the SPY Daily?
by  United States - Virginia TSP_MVP | 4 Comments

It'll be interesting to see where price heads from here. There has been controlled consolidation going on, and I expect a big move is coming. Hopefully upward! Watch for price action to break above the upper line of the flag for confirmation.
