Nearing the top again?
by  United States ronh227 | 6 Comments

Just curious what everyone thinks about whether or not we are nearing the top again..... and since everything that goes up must come down if you expect a downside to come soon (like it did several time this year every time we hit a top) . Will this time be any different since both countries have eased up on tariffs? Is there a potential for a new high? Thanks for any insight.

Order execution
by  United States VAmanBulls | 7 Comments

Can anyone shed some light on the timing of live TSP interfund order executions? I know the site says if you make a transfer by noon, it will appear next day. But when is the order actually cut? For example, if I place a C to G fund transfer request at 10am because I think the market may sell-off in the afternoon, am I safe? Or does TSP just execute orders after the closing bell? Same question with a transfer into the C fund, say over the weekend. Does TSP execute that order at the bell open on Monday, or sometime during the day Monday?

Residential Loan Question
by  United States prican64 | 3 Comments

Hello everyone,

I've already signed a contract for the purchase of a new home and I'm on the early stages of the mortgage loan application (file was just sent to processing after being conditionally approved). I plan to use funds from my TSP to cover my closing costs. My question is related to the documentation needed by TSP to approve the residential loan. On the TSP-21 it says that I can send them a copy of the complete purchase contract or the final settlement sheet as forms of acceptable documentation.

Has any of you made the request using the purchase contract instead of the settlement sheet? My concern is that the purchase contract doesn't have the estimated amount of closing cost. I don't know if the TSP will then request more details about the transaction and delay the process. I was thinking about requesting 3% of the purchase amount, but don't know if it would be better to wait for the actual settlement sheet with the exact number. I've already incurred in out of pocket paid expenses such as inspections, appraisal, etc. and wanted to get the TPS residential loan done as soon as possible.

Question about Vanguard and Fidelity
by  United States cswift01 | 9 Comments

For those of you that are customers of both (I am of Fidelity), how will you react now that neither has opened all ETFs and stocks to free trades? I know that Vanguard opened most ETFs (with the exception of leveraged ETFs) for free, so they're ahead of the curve.

I contacted Fidelity and didn't have much luck. They stated that they "already" offer a major number of benefits above their competition and there is no plan for a response presently.

I'm not sure yet what I'll do.

Good morning all.

I have recently come across this website and the TSP Calc site Soni decided to say hello.

Little background: Joined the Navy at 18 years old right out of high school. I have been contributing to the Traditional TSP ever since. Most years were 10%, but the last third I've needed to drop to 5%. I was L2040 for about a 8 years until I switched to 65C 35S recently.

I've been looking into this strategy to get started. Lots of reading has been happening, to include the Seasonal Musings. I have a lot to learn, but thank you for having me.
