I have a 401k account that has barely changed values (except going downward) for the last 3 years. It seems stuck at around 100k. This account was set up when I worked for my last company. I left it invested there when I left but now I'm thinking there should be better options out there.

Currently it is at Fidelity. I have half in a BTC Lifepath 2025 account and the other half in INTECH LG CAP Growth.

The other options in the plan include:

Vanguard total stock
IVK Grth & Inc Inst
TCM SM MID CAP Grth
WM Blair Sm Cp Val I
Cap Guardian Intl
Dodge & Cox Intl Stk
Van Tot Intl Stk IS
PIM Total RT Inst
Van Tot BD Mkt Inst
PIM Real return Inst
Intereste income fund
several more lifepath funds

An an option to use Brokeragelink which I think allows you to pick individual stocks.

I'm 54 years old and expect to work another 13 years (at least).

This is probably totally unrealistic but I would like to double my money in the next 10 years. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I leave it where it is? Move it to diff accounts in the same plan? Move it to a totally different plan?

Thanks,
Rut
