I dabbled this last couple months with a custom allocation mix for the end of June and all of last month (July) and did pretty well tacking on nearly 7% to my TSP. I have nearly caught back up to my highest balance of this year (pre COVID breakdown madness) through my contributions and earnings...so now my question is....Is it safe to resume my original chosen strategy or do I play it by ear?...(ie loosely play my strategy but keep a closer eye for turmoil that'll break our TSP accounts down again)

I know...no one knows for certain, but I suspect the election coming up is either going to take us higher or lower depending on who wins.

I also know August is not a relatively good month for the markets or I should say not an easy month to ride out in the miserable, low action F fund, but I'd rather be safe than sorry at this point choosing not to unravel everything I've worked so hard to build back up.

Thoughts?



Cheers!
