TSP Forcast for Week of 3 Aug - Pvt. Snaffu
by  United States - Georgia snaffu | 2 Comments

My position: 100% S-Fund. I can't get over the feeling the perfect move was to exit last Friday..

I'm putting F first because I think it has the most bearing on the other funds..
AGG / F Fund:.. Both STO's peaking out@ 80, Closed on 100MA resistance. Since Both STO have peaked out, is @ resistance and @ top of BB, I think F is about to turn down which helps clarify the indecision of the other funds.

SPX / C Fund:.. SSTO falling @50, FSTO indecisive @ 60-70, I thing at a resting point, which is supported by FIBS.. this means that a retracement to about 2090 could be in order then continue higher with the next target of 2130.

DWCPF / S Fund:.. SSTO falling @40 but slowing down, FSTO Rising @ 56, Closed in a Doji meaning Indecisive. As with SPX, could see a couple of days of retracement... Looking for a target up near the 100MA ($1110) which is also a repeated resistance/support area between 1115 and 1125. If we look at DOW Index:.. which DWCPF is a sub-set of, FSTO is 45 and rising, SSTO is falling @ 30 and ready to turn positive.. I think this supports staying in S fund if you are already in.

EFA / I Fund:.. STO both falling but @ 50, Gapped up 1% and bounced of 100MA resistance. I love I-Fund just for this reason.. It’s a wild ride if you can catch the wave.. A line can be drawn between highs of May, Jun, Jul and Fridays close and closed with a down day.. which can suggest resistance. I have no idea what to do with this one until we see the first few days of next week..

Summary... I think we can see a couple of resting or down days before continuing up.. Not a time to get in or out until we see what Aug looks like.

0500 update... Greece opens its stock markets this morning, Its already down 25%.. Will it carry the Euro market with it??

I Fund

Did the I fund really jump over 1% on Friday? Can we still use EFA to track the I fund?

Ways to Save.
by  United States ArrieS | 5 Comments

I was just curious how other people might be saving money, managing and track it, either for retirement or something specific.

For example I use digit ( https://digit.co/r/Dq_76?wn ), it automatically takes a small amount out every few days based on a calculation from my income and spending habits. I basically forget about it and it has saved me a lot, about $900 after 7 months and I never missed the money. I like it because I basically forget about it and don't see it with all my other accounts so I never think about possibly using it, a secret rainy day fund.

I also use services like Mint (mint.com) to track my spending and net worth, and personal capital (http://www.personalcapital.com) to consolidate and track my investments. Mint does that but I think Personal Capital is better at it.

I was wondering if there are other services people might use, or just general tips. After all retirement is more than just the TSP and IRA accounts.

P.S. shameless plug, if you do sign up for digit I get $5 bucks for a referral if you use my link. :mrgreen:

Quick Question (Still a bit of a NOOB)
by  United States Heckler511 | 7 Comments

Hey Guys,

If I submit an IFT before noon eastern time tomorrow on Friday 7/31/15 will it get processed as a July IFT? I want to be sure not to use an August IFT. Thanks!

Fed leaves interest rates unchanged

CNBC FED Story

'With Wall Street looking for any clues that tighter policy is coming, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday declined to raise interest rates or provide any clues about when a hike is on the way.'

Possibly New Withdrawal Options
by  United States TNCarters | 8 Comments

Many have probably seen this on various outlets. Thought I'd throw a FedSmith article link on here for everyones info. Guess we'll see if they fix things enough to keep me from doing a full rollover to another IRA after retirement.

Markets Topped
by  United States TSPsmart | 4 Comments

I am looking for a good discussion... The markets have topped.

A double peak is always possible after a good correction and the Fed hitting the QE button again, but by double peak I mean the market returns to no more than plus or minus 1% of the first peak then fades fast. We saw a double peak in 2000 and 2007, but it does not guarantee another one. We are seeing the results this summer of a QE driven bull market being taken off QE life support.

Here is what I see for peak dates.

20 July
TSP C fund at 28. 4005 (S&P 500 index with dividends included)

23 June
Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index (total US market)
TSP S fund at 39.3314 (mid & small caps)
Russell 2000 index (small caps)

21 May
S&P 500 index (price only as quoted everywhere)
NYSE Composite

19 May
DJIA

I have been in the Sell-on-Strength mode since the Spring.

Thoughts?
