Please forgive a remedial question...
I am in the military, and I will likely get out in 2008. I am planning on starting a TSP, and the question is which investment plan to match against my investment. I was thinking of either the C fund (based on the S&P 500) or the S fund (based on the wilshire 4500). Here is my limited understanding; S&P does well during a period of low interest rates, which I think we are in now?! I know the S&P is up 34% this year, but hasn't it been negative growth for the last three years? In any event, I need to pick the investment package that will see the highest return for the next three years, likely the last few years I will have a chance to use this. Thanks, sorry for my rookie ways.
