At your age, there's no need for bonds in your portfolio. They're just a drag on your growth rate. I would put everything in a couple of Vanguard funds, possibly Index500. If they're open for new investors, you might want to put some in Windsor II, which pays good dividends, and CapOp and PrimeCap, which give you a little more aggressive growth. Regardless, I would buy and forget. This means buy and hold, and don't worry about the ups and downs. At your age, you've probably got better things to do than worry daily about the stock market, particularly since worrying gets you nothing but worry.
