I need some foolish help, please. I am wondering if there is an Index Fund that covers or comes close to covering:Large Cap - Growth, Large Cap - Value, Small Cap - Growth, and Small Cap - Value? I read the post about a favorite index fund article and it made me think, is such a fund already available or do I have to invest in these types of funds individually that I can obtain myself? Your help is greatly appreciated. Have a great 4th. Be safe!

Any total stock market index fund should cover all of those categories. If in doubt check out Morningstar's web site for their breakdown. Good luck.

from everything I have read, Small-Growth is a dead end in terms of investing.

From a new investor's point of view, it would be best to go with a Total Stock Market Index Fund from the likes of Vanguard or even a Total World Index (do not know if that exists)

coolprash,

Try Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (Symbol: VT).
