Looking for feedback.

Currently, I have 30K in a Vanguard IRA, all in Index 500. I want to shift this money into something more aggressive, as
I'm only 30.

I am considering shifting it into Vanguard's Capital Opportunity Fund (5 year holding period or pay a 1% fee on
withdrawal). My other choice is to switch a chunk of the fund (20K)to a brokerage account and buy QQQ.

Buy the QQQ's.

You buy and sell just like a stock. Therefore you can use limit orders. You do not have to sell/buy and then waite until the end of the day to see if you got hurt by a big market change.
