Need help picking Vanguard investments
« on: August 08, 2016, 10:28:16 AM »
Hello fellow Mustachians,

I need help picking Vanguard investments. Right now I am investing everything in VFIAX. But I want to diversify a bit between Bonds, Stock, ETF,...

What's you mix? I am thinking 90% Stocks and 10% Bonds? If bonds, which ones?

Thanks.

Most people just use the VTSAX (Min $10k) for stocks. This is the one that has the .05% expense ratio.

Likewise people just use the total-bond-admiral for bonds...

Keep it simple!
