I started my ROTH IN 1998 investing 2,000 each year for the past 3 years. I lost about half the value in my ROTH since I selected Vanguards US GROWTH which took a beating the past few years. (figures) Anyway, I was thinking about selecting Vanguards VTSMX (total market fund) as my ROTH since I feel better about investing in a more conservative but more diversified fund. How do I go about switching these funds? I don't want to take the money out of US GROWTH, just start making payments toward an index fund... can you have two funds that work as roths??


How low can US GROWTH GO?? Just because some private stock funds get really really low doesn't mean it's time to buy, I realize that... they could very well keep on going down. Is that the same case as these mutual funds?? I am afraid to put another 2,000 for last year and 3,000 for this year into my ROTH. (US GROWTH)
