Janet Yellen Speaks @ 1:00 PM ET
I’m thinking she is going to pamper the markets a little more. Who doesn't love a little pampering? But at some point there will be inescapable consequences. At some point there simply won’t be enough buyers crazy enough to buy at prices that are at levels that are survivable for sellers.
HOLIDAY CLOSING, Monday, May 25th
Some financial markets will be closed on Monday, May 25th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. The Thrift Savings Plan will also be closed. Transactions that would have been processed Monday night (May 25th) will be processed Tuesday night (May 26th), at Tuesday's closing share prices
Lately I have thought it wise to stay out of the markets. I have observed from the sidelines, looking for a pullback that never came. Well maybe the pullback came and went and that was all we are going to get. I got a signal a few days ago, but I was struggling with the feeling we didn’t pullback enough. I missed out.
The trading strategy that I use involves several charts that require conditions and triggers. They never all agree, and end up giving me a percent. It is up to me to determine how high the percent should get before accepting the signal. The more conservative I feel, the larger the percent I require. The charts I have selected to pay the most attention to have come to me from long hours of studying. Ones that determine trends that can be capitalized on if timed right. I know I don't have the necessary credentials to be a lead speaker on this subject. So, I will just provide what I interpret from the charts. Yeah its looks like a turn-up is under way. And the chart below is the last one to add weight to the 100% S fund decision.

It is a chart of the S&P Small Cap IT Volume Momentum Oscillator (red line), with the S fund proxy $EMW (blue line) overlaid. The vertical green and red lines are what I consider buy and sell triggers, using the MACD and/or the Stochastic RSI.
Stocks App - Android
Stocks RealTime - This is a nice app for tracking I Fund stocks from international markets.
It is no longer available from Google Play Store, but I found this link:
Attached are screenshots and stock symbols from iShares EFA.
Japan and China use numerics for their stock symbols
Once added, the lists will be largest to smallest by company.
The first portfolio is Australia to Hong Kong if added in the order below, followed with a second portfolio for the EU.
The linear format makes it easier to add the stocks to the app, hope that's ok.
SAN-BANCO SANTANDER SA
USPS Mail Handler Assistant
My nephew will be starting soon as an MHA for the USPS, does anyone know if he can participate in the TSP.
Jobs report and those who work for the Department
Just out of curiosity, would those people who work in let's say Labor Department be allowed to make changes to their TSP prior to the reports coming out? That sounds more like insider trading sorta kinda to me.
I fund country & exchange rate charts one-stop shop
I just created a one-stop shop for seeing what the individual country indexes and exchange rates are doing for the I fund. I was getting tired of jumping around when I just want a quick snap shot.
I did the same for the major sectors for the TSP C and S fund. Nothing fancy, but easy to scan through.
Enjoy your summer!
