Mimicking total stock index
« on: February 15, 2017, 07:20:08 PM »
Quick question about mimicking US total stock market index funds. In my wife and my Roth IRAs I invest in Fidelity Total Stock Market (FSTVX) for domestic stocks.  In my HSA and 457 I'd like to invest total stock market but there is not one fund that is available to meet tsm index.  How could I allocate the following funds to mimic the tsm?

457
1.  Vanguard institutional index -VIIIX (.02%) S&P 500 index
2.  Vanguard small-cap index - VSCPX (.05%)

HSA
1.  Vanguard 500 index admiral - VFIAX (.05%)
2. Vanguard mid cap index admiral VIMAX (.08%)
3. Vanguard small cap value index admiral - VSIAX (.08%)

What would be a simple way to allocate these funds?  Also, would a small cap value index be different than a small cap index?
