I'm only 20, so I won't be retiring for at least 45 years, but I know the power of compound interest. I'm thinking about
starting a Roth IRA, but I have little time to watch individual stocks. What's the best way to invest $2000 that doesn't
require my attention? I've thought about an S&P 500 index fund, but is there anything that will beat that?


Don't have any time to learn how to earn millions? Must have a rather busy life.

You have the right Idea. If you want more risk try QQQ. Put QQQ in a quote field to investigate. Since you have many years to go I think the risk is ok.
