TSP F fund
For those of you who are federal retirees and have $$ invested in the Thrift Savings Plan, I'm curious what your thoughts are on investments in the F fund (bond fund) going forward. I know that the F fund typically performs better when interest rates are going down (and poorly when rates rise), and since rates are so low right now (with not much room to go lower?), my initial feeling was that the F fund would probably not be a very good investment right now. But........the F fund gained 8.7% in 2019, and is up 7.7% year-to-date, so it's doing pretty well. It seems like, as long as rates don't rise from here (and I personally do not see rates rising anytime soon), the F fund may do okay(?), and outperform the G fund.
Just curious if anyone else out there has thoughts on this, and what your reasoning is. I know there is risk involved in any investment, and things can change quickly, but I thought I would ask for opinions from the braintrust on the forum about the F fund going forward. Thanks.........
