I have an existing IRA that I would like to transfer into an Index fund, I was thinking of puting it into the Vanguard 500. Does anyone think this is the best please for an IRA Index Fund? Other suggestions?

Here are some funds that I am checking into
FBRSX,FSVLX, and VGHCX. They are not index but look pretty good.

I have about half of my IRA in Vanguard's VIMSX and I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope that helps.

I have money in Vfiax I find it a good fund to mirror the Dow 30. It also the lowest cost brokerage family of funds. You may also look at vgsix,vwnfx. Good luck !

Sure-- you could stick your entire IRA in the Vanguard 500 it will mirror returns of the S&P 500 with low mamagement fees, or you could join MF Inside Value(which has doubled the returns of the S&P 500 since they started) and invest some in your Vanguard fund-- leaving some in cash. Invest bit by bit in the inside value best buys now recommendations. You'll likely see you're returns beating the index in a few months.

fool on!
