Trabucco said the last day of trading in November was a particularly good day for the TSP. The financial markets rose sharply after the Federal Reserve and other central banks launched an effort to provide cheap emergency loans to banks, particularly, in Europe.
The G, F and C Fund also ended up in positive territory, for the year to-date.
The gains weren’t enough to raise year-to-date returns for the S and the I Fund, though, he said.
As for how the market looks so far for December, Trabucco said wouldn’t attempt to read the tea leaves.
“I’ve given up looking into the future,” Trabucco said. “I just try to position with tactical asset allocation,” he said. That means small adjustments based on market activity.
For his part, Trabucco said he’s “100 percent L Fund and I’m sticking with that.”
