SBruno Date: 4/1/99 2:53 AM Number: 9605 Does it make sense to have all 4 of these accounts to be made of of equity index funds? Does it make sense to have S&P index funds in each account?The usual Foolish advice is that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and buying S&P Index funds will put you ahead of most investors and most mutual funds - this is a fine starting point. The Foolish advice then continues with the recommendation that "beating them" isn't really all that difficult - say 15 minutes a year using the Foolish Four. You'll want some time to learn about this before you invest in it, so maybe put it all in S&P Index Fund or Spiders (see the Harry Jones Portfolio) now, read until you are comfortable - perhaps 6-12 months - then put some into a Foolish Four, and start reading about Rule Makers or other portfolios.
