    FYI - The matching by your agency is usually 5% so I would contribute that bare minimum right away. Otherwise, you are losing out on that free money. I'm also a relatively young Fed and I split my contributions nearly even between Roth TSP and Traditional TSP. I'm pretty aggressive so most of my money is in the C and S funds.

    Bought BAC, VNQ and VNQi
    Expanded upon SMLP, GOOGL, and S&P500 (and I suppose VNQ is pretty similar to a fund I already hold in a non-taxable account)

    I'm sitting on my shares right now, I have it feeling it will test the 52 week high...

    Love watching the market tank within minutes thanks to Ukraine / Russia.

    So fucking sick of their shit.

    Went from solidly in the green to solidly in the red now. :fu:

    Put in my Vanguard deposits today but I really have no clue when the actual "buy" goes into effect and at what price I get for the funds. Google doesn't help but it would be nice if it was the end of the day after some news like this!

    As for that bullshit fight over there, it is ridiculous. Not everything is red but a lot is.

    Fund orders are executed at the end of the day.

    Vanguard ETFs would execute immediately, but it sounds like you mean actual funds.

    EPZM and others are back down for bullshit news.

    Might be good time to buy on the dip.

    It's nice to know I have someone in roughly the same area as me, @WSW . Does the Roth TSP work the same as the traditional? I have no qualms putting away 5% to each. If so, could I replicate what @jbarwick did below with the Roth as well? I might even consider swapping the S and I Fund values to get more aggressive.

    Shake shack is rumored to IPO.

    Gonna be monitoring this one closely in case it mimics LOCO.
