Hey there everyone, I really am new to investing. I have a 401-k through my work and recently did a lot of reading on here about investing and have come to the conclusion that a Roth IRA is for me. I am currently 30 years old and would like to save moderately aggressive through my investments. I like the idea of small cap stocks since I don't plan to touch this much until I retire and from what I read they seem to be good for the long term for an aggressive investor. However I may not have all the facts as my knowledge has only came from a few days of research on this website.

I recently set up a Roth IRA account through Sharebuilder and wanted to see what they thought I should do for an investment. They think I should put all my funds into the s&p 500 index. I thought I would get thoughts on this and if this is a good road to travel.

Also I was curious if I was to distribute my R-IRA through stocks if someone could show me possibly to a post or information moderately aggressive options for the R-IRA investor. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
