Do You Invest In The Stock Market?
« on: Thu, 13 February 2020, 09:58:27 »
I am an idiot because I didn't start contributing to my 401(k) until I'd been at my job for four years, and I only started a Roth IRA a couple weeks ago. I also recently setup a TD Ameritrade account to invest my HSA account's funds until I need them for medical expenses.

I don't really know how to evaluate stocks or mutual funds, so my 401(k) is just invested in a Vanguard Target Retirement Fund, my Roth IRA is in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund, and my TD Ameritrade account is in the Vanguard Total Market Fund ETF. Supposedly, there's a bubble right now and index funds may take a hit soon.

I've thought about reading "The Little Book That Still Beats the Market" by Joel Greenblatt and setting up a separate brokerage account in Vanguard to use the info therein, but I'll probably have to wait for more funds to become available for that.
