Pick any funds you want from the TSP. C, F, I or whatever. Even the Lifecycle funds.

Let's say you have 50% in Fund "A" and 50% in Fund "Z".

Are there any situations where investing in one fund "A" and it rises, automatically makes the second fund "Z" lose?

Have I explained that right? Does what I've written make sense?

In theory this is what would happen between Stocks and bonds. Not that one going down "causes" the other to go up. But people are skittish of one and move their money out of it (stocks) so the price drops because of excess supply. Bonds go up because of increased demand.

People get 'bullish' of stocks, so they move money from bonds. Bonds go down because of the excess supply, stocks go up because of the demand.
