I'm 7+ years away from retirement eligibility under FERS. My asset allocation is at 35% G, 30% C, 20 % S, and 15% I. I'd probably just be in the L fund except that I don't care for the F fund component of it.

I assess the performance of TSP account with reference to my long-term retirement goals, not how it does compared to anything else. That can be very hard to do at times when the market hits its little peaks and valleys, no question. But I am not a market timer. I'll be very happy to reach the point where my TSP balance gets so large that I can leave 60-70 percent of my TSP in the G fund permanently and not sweat what happens the market everyday.
