Re: 24 year old seeking reassurance and critiques of Roth IRA ETF portfolio asset allocation

I must thank you all for your replies. My naivety and arrogance would have started me off on shakier footing. As I age, I continue to learn the value of asking for help. I will focus my attention on two to four equity funds maximum at this time. Consensus tells me that a majority holding in VTI and ...

I have decided to go down the ETF route until I have enough money to upgrade to admiral shares for each individual investment. I am ok with complexity and I am able to tolerate extreme risk as a long-term...

Alright everyone!

I have narrowed it down per your suggestions: VASGX vs. VFINX.

Re: Employee 401(k) Rollover for age 23 Investor

How high is your tolerance? With this $6 grand, if it went to $1,000 (markets just completely collapse) would you get all bent out of shape? TBH, $6,000 is not that much as conceivably in 40 years, your portfolio will likely (easily) have $6,000 swings in day to day activities on the market. If you...

Re: Employee 401(k) Rollover for age 23 Investor

I appreciate all the quality responses! Ok, I am set to roll over to a Vanguard Roth IRA. What are the most aggressive, lowest expense funds you all would recommend besides the Vanguard LifeStrategy Growth Fund (VASGX)? I have been looking into the aforementioned fund and like what I see. I would ju...
