Hey All,

I recently read an article in the paper that said to truely invest in an "index fund" you need to be in both the S&P and the Russell 2000 to cover all the bases. Since we now that both of these funds have historically returned around 12% does anyone see any reason not to invest in these 50% and 50% so the market ups and downs will not affect your fund so much? The fees on each are simalar and low so I am considering this strategy opposed to the straight S&P index fund...

Thanks for any responses! Fool on....
