Preferred Fund/Shunned Funds

Post by harryface »

Years ago when I first started coming to TSPCenter.com I watched the Preferred/Shunned fund indicator in the top right corner but over time I noticed that what people were doing with their fantasy accounts was usually very different than the Preferred/Shunned indicator.

It would be a great addition for the Owner of TSPCenter.com to create an indicator based on the Fantasy TSP moves. The more moves to a specific fund the Higher the rating for that fund, etc. I am sure this is not an easy thing to program but I thought I would throw it out there. Could also do a separate board based on the top 20 gaining fantasy TSP accounts. Meaning grade the funds people are moving too for those with the highest return for the year.

Many watch the top five board and see how they are trading to decide on our own trades.

I cannot speak for MJ or Aitrus, but I think most of this code's logic already exists in the "My Watch" list page--and can just be applied to query the entire TSPCenter user list.

I would also like to see a place in the My TSP for you to input a TSP Calc strategy you are following. It would be great to have more stats on what folks on the leaderboard are doing like popular strategies, the preferred/shunned indicator you mention, etc.

Yes, seems the code is already in place. Go to "Leader Board" and scroll down to "Statistics". You'll see Average Allocation for all users.

The second list on this page is allocations for the Top 10, but this seems broken currently.

This feature is about to be removed.

It is not really a good bet that existing code can be re-used on the new site with little effort.
