considering TSPCALC Seasonal Strategy to maximize IFund

Post by dseery »

Hi All, Putting this out there for feedback…

During my decades-long career, I have always favored the US indexes over the I Fund. Now I wonder… Some are projecting during the next decade emerging markets and I Fund to outperform what may soon become overvalued US large and small cap indexes.

Given these commentaries, is anyone considering adopting a TSPCALC Seasonal Strategy that is more heavily weighted in the I Fund?

Too many variables for me. Right now I look at the I Fund for Christmas through New Years only.

The I fund is similar to the MSCI EAFE. "The MSCI EAFE Index is an equity index which captures large and mid cap representation across 21 Developed Markets countries around the world, excluding the US and Canada."

Hello dseery ,

I am in Strategy 85660 with a leaning toward 121017 as it is extremely similar with twists that apparently make it have higher returns. I continually check to see what is performing better and if I does start to outperform then I will adapt. So far I has not risen to the challenge. There is some consideration to use it to replace F in the beginning of January but S appears to have a better run, at least this year.

Cheers! T :)
