I am considering reallocating my IRA. I am in my mid 30s and currently have all of my IRA in a Balanced Fund. I have read about Index Funds here and am considering moving a portion of my IRA to one. The question is : What percent do people recommend? I know that for 5 responses I may get 6 different answers :-)

I was just hoping for a variety of suggestions from which to make a decision. Also, what about a portion in a Growth Fund?
I was considering 50% Index Fund, 25% Balanced and 25% Growth. Or would I be better off being out of a Balanced Fund?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
