Thanks for your help. I guess I didn't make myself to clear. I am very new to all of this. I am planning on long term investing. Considering Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund (VITSX), Vanguard Total Bond MarketIndex Fund (VBMFX)& Vanguard Total Stock Market Index(VTSMX).Not sure on amounts & if I am missing something or better to only have VTSMX. I'm still researching. Any comments would be appreciated.Thanks again for your help. Bond fund can lose money and are not great for long term investments. However, part of your money in fixed income is a conservative way to go.Not knowing about you I would make sure I had an emergency fund invested in a money market account or CD's. Then assuming the balance is long term, over 5 years, I would go with a stock index fund. You could pick two or three funds and divide the money equally. Vanguard is a good fund group.
