Disability forced retirement, and I converted my union individual account into an IRA at Fidelity. So far my six week term has resulted in a 5% return. I consider this okay even taking into account that I was 20% into bond funds that showed zero return for the period. I've switched two of them to equity funds.

My question is how do I compare returns or which index is best for comparison in general? I'm just getting started, so there will be many more postings to come. Suggestions and critical comments welcome.
