“Your product is great and your explanations are easy to follow. Looks like I can update them myself for future transfers past 2022.” – R.B., Kailua, Hawaii
For only $145, you will receive the following items with your purchase:
TSP Timing Data – The current Excel spreadsheet which provides the following tabs of information:
- Returns Summary – This tab summarizes the annual returns of all TSP Timing strategies (a total of seven), as well as all comparison investing strategies such as buying and holding the C fund, or a balanced mix of funds.
- Strategy Rules – A summary of the rules used for each of the strategies. The rules are discussed in more detail in the Manual.
- Future IFTs – This tab lists the interfund transfers (IFTs) you would make if you decide to follow one of the strategies with part or all of your portfolio. The IFTs are provided for at least five years into the future beyond the date of your purchase, so the purchase price is in effect just $29/year. And if you’d like you can purchase updated spreadsheets every year for just $29 once you’re an established customer. It’s best to do this in January each year.
- Daily Data – This tab is the heart of the system. It includes data for all of the funds going back for 30 years, and going forward for at least 5 years. The data is then used on other tabs to calculate monthly/annual returns. See a screenshot example below of this tab.
- Monthly Data – This tab takes the daily data and summarizes returns in a monthly format, and then has three tables with 10-year, 20-year, and 30+year returns for each fund as well as the percentage of the months over that period that the funds had a positive return. This information is then used to decide which funds to be in at any given time of the year.
- Monthly Fund Summary – This tab provides the summary of the best funds to be in during each month of the year. This is the key to the various TSP Timing strategies.
- UE Rate Data – This tab provides unemployment rate data which is used to time the top of bull markets and exit the Enhanced strategy. This is a key component of the Bull/Bear strategy, along with a monthly charting method which is used to time re-entry into the markets using the Enhanced strategy.
- Bull/Bear Summary – This tab provides a summary of when this strategy exited and re-entered the stock markets during the last two bear markets (2000-03 and 2007-09). There can be no guarantee that it will work for every bear market, but so far so good, and it will be continually re-evaluated in the future.
- Tweaks – This tab provides some background information on how some of the tweaks to improve performance in the Enhanced strategy were developed.
TSP Timing Manual – A pdf document containing a complete description and instructions for use of the TSP Timing Data spreadsheet. This Manual includes an introduction, then sections that thoroughly describe all of the information on each spreadsheet tab described above, including information on how the various strategies were developed.
Updates – You may purchase current updated spreadsheets and the accompanying TSP Timing Manual at any time for just $29. Many customers do this once per year in January.
