I was considering 50% Index Fund, 25% Balanced and 25% Growth. Or would I be better off being out of a Balanced Fund? Ranger,Its time to avoid the index funds. Some predict sideways movement in the broad markets through the end of the year and maybe into 2003 depending on the actual recovery activity. Managed funds should do better in this market. As for a mix, here is my recommendation20% Bond fund20% Small/Mid cap growth20% Small/Mid cap value20% Large cap growth20% Large cap valueSmall and mid-caps have done very well over the last year and when the recovery really takes hold Large caps should do better. Value has done better than growth over the last 2 years and it should still do well. Growth will pick back up after the recovery is well underway. Bonds have been the winner the last 2 years. Its good to have them in the mix if they are doing better than money market.
