Nice hour long documentary on Index Funds.  I enjoyed it, thought you all might enjoy it as well.

Thanks for posting.

I enjoyed it. Pushing their services and DFA funds of course. Still worth watching.

I would have said it's preaching to the choir, but the last couple of days the market timers have come out in force, so maybe not ;-).

Interesting comment on Bonds: Recommend a mix of treasuries and corporates, but pretty much stop at five year maturities. No risk/reward advantage beyond that, they say.

(I recently invested for the first time in bonds. I chose Vanguard short term bond fund BSV. Slightly better returns than cash, low risk).
