Politics, Stocks and Your Thrift Savings Plan

When it comes to investing our money, most people put short-term political views aside. When spending their money, they focus on the future of business and the prospects for future growth. If they are confident, stock prices go up. If they are pessimistic, stock prices go down. TSP stock funds dropped dramatically again in February with one fund, the G fund, the only TSP fund with a positive return for the month and for the year.
