Tuesday - 7/3/2012, 9:38am EDT

After several months of declining numbers, the Thrift Savings Plan figures began to climb through the month of June, with all 10 funds reporting numbers in the black.

In May, only the G Fund and the F Fund ended the month on the positive side of the ledger. A month later, though, all 10 funds were posting positive returns.

The I Fund made the biggest leap, going from -11.40 percent at the end of May to 7.08 percent on June 30. While that fund's year-to-date number is a positive 3.25 percent, its 12-month performance remains in the red at -13.51 percent.

The positive growth in June shown by the L 2050 and S Fund failed to bring their 12-month performances into the black. Over the last year, their numbers were -0.76 percent and -1.54 percent, respectively.
