How the TSP Calculates Share Price: The value of your TSP account is determined each business day based on the daily share price and the number of shares you hold in each fund. At the end of each business day, after the stock and bond markets have closed, the total value of the funds' holdings (net of accrued administrative expenses) is divided by the total number of shares outstanding to determine the share price for that day.

Calculating Dividends & Capital gains, Share Purchases, Share Sales, and Fair Value Pricing

Our main goal is to maximize our TSP savings during bull market cycles and protect capital during potentially unstable market periods.

In addition to using technical and fundamental analysis, we are now validating our interpretation by using a mechanical impulse system. The impulse system uses a combination of trend following and momentum, which maximizes gains when the market is trending.
