Our Methodology

Our proprietary methodology uses fundamental and technical analysis for trading the funds of the Thrift Savings Plan F Fund, C Fund, S Fund, and I Fund. At TSPFundTrading.com, our number one goal is to consistently produce results that beat the buy-and-hold strategy of investing.

On our Members Only page, members will have access to the latest updates for the funds (F, C, S, and I). As stated on our TSP Funds page and for tracking purposes, we will use the following ticker symbols for the funds:

Fund G F C S I
Ticker Symbol none AGG $SPX $EMW EFA

The members page will provide TSPFundTrading.com's Weekly Newsletter, which contains professional chart analysis & commentary for each of the funds. The newsletter is updated each Friday before the market opening. The members page will also show our "Current Fund Distribution" in percent allocations for each fund. {The current fund distribution is not shown in the sample newsletter below, since this information is confidential and provided to members only.} Our justifications for the position we take are clearly written in the report. Charts are also annotated with commentary and technical information. You do not have to be an expert in technical analysis to understand our interpretations. We only provide this information to help members understand how we derive our percent allocations in the funds.

Regarding technical analysis, there are a wide variety of elements we use for each fund. Some of these may include: trend analysis with key levels of support and resistance, uptrending and downtrending channels, pattern recognition, volume analysis, Elliott wave analysis, MACD (moving average convergence / divergence), overbought and oversold readings (Williams %R and Stochastics), relative strength index, relationships to volatility indexes, Fibonacci retracement levels, risk-to-reward probabilities, and our interpretation of the technical indicators along with providing our short-term forecast.

Our methodology is ideal for attaining the highest-reward / lowest-risk in the various funds for the short- to intermediate-term. View two sample newsletters that was presented to our members:

TSPFundTrading.com's Weekly Newsletter (July 03, 2008)
Notice on the ETF charts that we predicted the Market Crash of 2008

Members will receive an e-mail each Friday before the market opening, as a reminder that our weekly newsletter has been updated on the members page. Also, members will receive an e-mail alert when we believe it is best to make an IFT (Interfund Transfer). In this e-mail, we will show our percentage distributions for the various funds.

Also, we do not intend on advertising our site heavily, because we find that spreading our quality service by word-of-mouth to fellow government employees is much more effective. We do not strive for perfection, because we will tell you upfront, that perfection does not exist in the stock market. What we strive for is upholding to the highest level of professionalism, integrity, credibility and reputation. We hope you will come to the same conclusion after becoming a member by witnessing the devotion we have to our work and in successfully interpretating the market. Our very high rate of renewals suggests that members are very happy to see their thrift retirement accounts substantially grow through the years.
