    I took a safe haven in Cref money market for a while but about time to move.
    Have narrowed the field down to:
    TRPWX
    TRLIX
    TIMVX
    TIGRX
    CREF;
    stock
    global equities
    growth
    equity index
    The worst performance of the lot over the past year was + 21% and the best 30%.
    With funds like these fundamental analysis is out the window due to the number of holdings- that's what the fund manager does.
    If I didn't have a degree in statistics I would believe that technical analysis is voodoo, BUT it is possible to predict future performance from past in some cases. Anyone into this?
    I just cant see buying into a bull market but since all 8 have shown declines over the past few days.....

    Sorry, I lost track of this thread. How have these performed since the beginning of 2014? Without looking, let me guess and say they've all been bouncing up and down in a 10 % range??

    Just a question, why TIAA-CREF instead of something like Vanguard?

    Yea, more or less. But aside from my CREF retirement accnt, which disallows frequent trading, you have the experience and power of, lets say, a 10^7 $ mutual fund at your disposal. Track their trading and follow suit in the short term. TSN is a good example.
