I've been reading the boards lately and am very excited to begin investing the RIGHT way. There are a couple of funds I'm currently invested in, but I'm not sure what the general consensus is. I would appreciate any insight.
- I'm looking for a "no-minimum" fund at the moment
- These are going to be in my taxable portfolio
- I'm looking for funds that will make up a majority of my portfolio
- I'm 30 years old, so I'm looking for more risk at the moment
Any thoughts on Powershares QQQ Trust (QQQ) and SPDR S&P Dividend Fund (SDY)? If poor choices, any recommendations?
I have called Scottrade a couple of times and they don't want to give me any S&P Index Fund tickers. They tell me to just Google it and then do a search on Scottrade. Not very helpful.
Let me know if there is any information you'd need to provide a better recommendation. I really appreciate any help!
My tIRA is in AMANX and AMAGX (I believe I need to sell these and reallocate my funds, as their expense rations are over 1.20% and don't provide good diversity between the two of them).
My 401K is split between a large cap growth, an international growth, and a bond fund. Not many good choices, so I made the most of what I had available.
My brokerage account is in QQQ and SDY at the moment.

Totally agree--you need to understand why you are buying various funds, allocation etc
