The most important observations to make in the TSP Fund Tracker  graphs . . . 

In the short-term (30 days to 1 year), the low-volatility funds (F and G) sometimes outperform the high-volatility funds (I and S) . . .

. . . but over the long-term (more than 1 year), the high-volatility funds usually outperform the low-volatility funds (this has not held true in late 2008).

Keep in mind that the C Fund tracks the overall stock market.

Alternative investments - Oil and gas well investments, real estate investments, etc.

Market timing strategy of TSPFundTracker.com - We advocate cautious and infrequent market timing, exchanging between high growth funds (C, S, I) and fixed return funds (F, G), typically 1 to 3 times each year.  The aim of this timing strategy is to wait out market downturns in the fixed return funds and reap the profits of upturns in the high growth funds.

Methodology - Our buy/sell (exchange) market timing calls are based on analysis of  fundamental (corporate profitability) data and technical (cyclical trend) data.

Timing Success - We do not claim to be able to predict stock market performance, although we have had considerable success timing the market in our own TSP Funds over the last 15 years.
