Any recommendations for similar holdings that would make for a good exchange from VXUS and ASHR for the purpose of tax loss harvesting? Thanks!

Mentions:#VXUS#ASHR

Yeah that's why I only have AVUV and not AVDV too for small cap value. The point on international diversification was separate--I think holding VXUS is important.

First off, I really really think you deserved that loss. Second, going 100% stocks is a bad idea. You can't handle the swings. So going 60/40 on stocks/bonds might be a good idea. Individuals stocks are out of the question so I would recommend VT or VTI/VXUS. And for the bond part any bond etf should do the trick.

Mentions:#VT#VTI#VXUS

Investing in ETFs long term is an excellent idea, but don’t limit yourself to growth and use total market funds instead (VTI, VXUS, VT etc)

Mentions:#VTI#VXUS#VT

When I was your age I wish I was told that you can never time the market. Don’t buy compulsively, especially too many stocks. I would stick to a 4 fund portfolio and just shovel money into it and don’t sell no matter where the market is at. If you can invest weekly or monthly it can even be as little at $10 just be consistent. I would recommend investing in 60% VTI(total US stock market), 15% VNQ(Real Estate ETF), 15% VBR (small cap-value), and 10% VXUS (total international) so you have a hand in every market. Use M1finance you’re able to make a pie that will invest the money you set i or there funds. Remember don’t sell just because the market is getting hammered!

Listen just buy VTI and dollar cost at different intervals. It has sp500 +small and mid caps. That’s all you need. Unless you learn to be stock picker, smell an economic moat, understand debt and cash flow, and have some mad Buffet skills you just better off with VTI and VXUS for non US. You are all set. Maybe keep 10-20% aside for individual stocks. And 2-3% to yolo some options —-> pathway to gambling though so be careful.

Yep, that is very steep losses, so I would not liquidate your holdings (at least not AAPL and AMZN since those are great companies), but I would put future contributions into a low cost index fund. Clearly you have a high risk tolerance so I think 100% VT is just fine. (Or pick your favorite allocation percentage of VTI and VXUS).

I own VXUS and I just have to fill out a couple extra fields. It's pretty simple if you use tax software.

I've watched closely since the initial run up and read many DD posts that usually have a preconceived idea (squeeze is coming) and then takes a bunch of information to validate the idea. I even made my wife watch the youtube videos when that GME sea shanty came out. It might squeeze again, or it might not. I have no idea which is why I lump it in with gambling. Obviously the early GME crowd caught the hedge funds by surprise and did pretty well. Unfortunately, you're playing a rigged game where big money is very interested in staying rich without letting others make money off their schemes. While I have no evidence, I firmly believe other hedge funds saw the shitshow and started going long GME to screw over the citadel types. I'm sure they were able to sell at the peak though. I just watch from the sidelines with my money chilling in VTI/VXUS as I've added money continuously to index funds over the past 24 years. No need to gamble or have investments cause high stress. 2 years until the land of FIRE.

So would 70% VTI, 10% VXUS, 10% VIG, and 10% SCHD be a bad play, or?

VXUS and VOO are basically the same YTD. over 3Y/5Y/10Y VXUS has been crushed by VOO. "lower expected return " doesnt mean much just cz market valuations are high. if a business is solid in the long run it will give u better returns. SPY is the worlds top 500 cos , basically impossible to beat that.

Mentions:#VXUS#VOO#SPY

International VXUS loses over last year to VTI by 7 percentage points. I would love for VXUS to outperform VTI by 10 percentage points in one year but will it ever happen with Japan and Europe not innovating. Investment theory also has small cap value winning and I own it in addition to VTI but again small cap value is behind VTI, but still much ahead of VXUS. I just cannot justify pouring any more money into international.

Mentions:#VXUS#VTI

VTSAX, AAON, BRKB, and some VXUS. I've kept a little powder dry and feel like now is the time.

I would slowly DCA into indexes, VTI and some VXUS for international. Then I’d buy 10k in iBonds which currently lock in a guaranteed 9.62% return but you can’t do anything with the money in the first year(it is locked up)

Mentions:#VTI#VXUS

DCA into VTI, VXUS, SOXX, and QQQM. Breakdown of investments allocations would be 25% VXUS- 70% VTI - 3% QQQM - 2% SOXX

Let's assume this is across your entire portfolio. 25% VXUS - 72% VTI - 3% QQQM QQQM has a smaller net ER at 0.15% - QQQ has a net ER of 0.20%.

Without knowing what type of account this is, or the investment timeline, I'd say 80% VTI and 20% VXUS.

Oh, that's a good tip! How does VXUS compare to VEU then?

I do 60/30/10 between VTI/VTV/VXUS. You can buy VXUS for international exposure. VT is a 60/40 split between VTI and VXUS.

Yeah I never claim it to be the best but it worked out in hindsight. 1. I shifted my strategy this year, opened a retirement account and starting putting most of my funds into VTI/VXUS. And 2. Apple was often my only gainer, and as dumb as it sounds I liked seeing it say I’m up 35-40%

Sorry to hear you lost money. Good news, though - you’ll be killing it in cybersecurity, likely starting around $100k/year. Stay focused with consistently contributing to a 401k/Roth IRA/HSA and enjoy retiring as a multi-millionaire. I also second @edblardo’s recommendation to join r/bogleheads. Many of us keep it simple with VTI/VOO + VXUS, adding bonds as you get closer to retirement. Minimize the highly risky stuff. You got this!

Mentions:#VTI#VOO#VXUS

I just don't see 50%, at least not for a prolonged period. More like 20%+ for months to years. I could factor in a 99% drawdown, but historically that hasn't been the case for VTI. (I have around 90% VTI, 2% AVUV, and 8% VXUS) And I'm nowhere near retirement age.

I vote either VOO or VTI with a little bit of VXUS. Small/mid caps have been hit a lot harder, so there is more of a 'dip' for VTI. The international diversification is because 1. We could have a prolonged bear market in the US; 2. international has been on discount for a decade; 3. The Russian war will eventually end.

Mentions:#VOO#VTI#VXUS

USD is at generational highs right now. Perhaps it is time to go back into VXUS? just curious about your thoughts.

Mentions:#VXUS

If you are buying standard fare index ETFs like VTI I would say buy back in and consider it a win that you'll be able to get significantly more shares than before. Several years ago I decided to get out of my international (VXUS) and so far haven't looked back.

Mentions:#VTI#VXUS

Also a beginner so make sure you read more and make your strategy. But my thoughts are the market will grow again eventually. If so, then essentially everything I am interested in is at a discount ie taking advantage of the market by buying a substantial sum into etfs now when they are at a cheaper price. I see a lot of cases for VTI or VTI+VXUS which are popular because they are world etfs meaning diversified and safer.

QQQ BRK.B and KO if not keep adding to BND,VXUS,VTI

Than my you so much for your detailed reply… I was wondering if there are other specific sector ETFs which are worth looking into.. Recently I came across SMH ( semi conductors ) or energy ETF or gaming ETF … or some other sector ETF ( I can’t think names right now ) … I have read through multiple post in various communities and I get that VTI + VXUS gives us complete list … Just wondering if there are sector wise ETFs..

Mentions:#SMH#VTI#VXUS

1. If you insist on holding QQQ, do not want overlapping holdings, but want a globally minded stock market portfolio, I'd add something like VXF to get mid/small cap US stocks (in the appropriate ratio), and then VXUS for the rest of the international market. 2. If you want to keep QQQ, but don't mind an overlapping portfolio, I'd just add VTI and VXUS and then have a portfolio overweighting QQQ. 3. Sell off QQQ and buy VTI/VXUS (but this risks taxable events) The problem with 1 is that it misses the holdings of (SPY - QQQ). I'm not exactly sure how to get that part of the market in a simple manner without adding in an overlapping fund. You could do 2 but use SPY instead of VTI, but that really overweights the top companies. So personally, I would do 2, and if I decide I don't want QQQ, over time, slowly sell off QQQ and reallocate into VTI.

My initial plan: panic, then VTI/VXUS, XLF, DGRO, and low beta S&P etf, FTEC, MTUM, whoever is closest to the 52 wk low get the paycheck that week. Whaddya think?

What’s happened the last week and even this year, shows why 90%+ of retail investors need to have the majority (at least 85%) of their total portfolio invested in low cost, well diversified ETS and/or mutual funds. Think VTI/VXUS/VT/FSKAX, etc. So many posts and comments in this sub start with something like “I am getting killed, when will it stop? My portfolio is 80% tech” or “I’m down 60% in stock xyz that I bought at the ATH, what should I do now?” Or “which sector should I rotate to and for how long?”

Yeah, to give a shorter answer invest in ETFs. Itll give you more coverage and you won’t take as much of a loss due to it. You can ask on r/ETFs for options but theyll likely just suggest VTI, VT, VXUS combo. I am very new to investing so I do not know a lot but I suggest VTI itll give you like 4000 company coverage.

Mentions:#VTI#VT#VXUS

I mean, it would suck? You can't mitigate all risk, but having VTI/VXUS (or VT like the OP) will help mitigate it. My portfolio is currently balanced/has target based on total global economy. Right now the US makes up about 60%, and the rest of the world making up the remaining 40%, so this is how I have my allocation. If in the future if the US has a "lost decade" and becomes a smaller and smaller part of the global economy, my portion of VXUS would grow because that is where most of my new dollars would flow. I mean, at that point I'd be worried more about my own personal future more than I would how my retirement fund was going (see above) but it's literally the reason I have global funds in my index despite them "under performing" for the past decade or more. I'm guessing in that situation my shares of AVUV would be worthless, but I only have a small tilt into there and the stock market is always risk. It would royally suck to live through a lost decade on top of everything that's come before. But I'm not smart enough to pick the "right" way to avoid that, much less time when it will happen so I know when to get my money out. That's why I just try and track the global market as best as possible, because I am a pessimist

Absolutely. An alternative to VTI/VXUS is VT, which contains most of the world market according to market weights. It is a bit smaller than VTI/VXUS and has a slightly higher fee, but it is fairly negligible. Regardless, both VTI/VXUS or VT would be excellent choices for a long-term investment. Most people would recommend either 80/20 or 60/40 for VTI/VXUS.

Assuming the majority of your total portfolio, across all accounts, is invested at least 85% in low cost, well diversified ETFs and/or mutual funds (think VTI and VXUS), you just keeping buying at your regular intervals. The people who are freaking out the most are those that bought at or near ATHs. Maybe they bought garbage like PLTR. Or maybe they bought NVDA at $345. The former will be waiting a long time, if ever to recoup their loses. The latter will eventually get back there, it will just take some time. In the last couple of years a number of retail investors expect their individual stocks to see double digit gains every month and that’s just not realistic.

Ask yourself why you chose those two ETFs (Disclosure, I invest in VTI/VXUS and AVUV, so similar). Do you think that they're smart decisions? Do you believe in what they're trying to accomplish. So for example with VT, it's following the entire stock market globally. I am super pessimistic so this is how I put it to myself: If VTI/VXUS absolutely tank and don't recover, the absolute SMALLEST worry on my mind in that future would be "What will my retirement be like" and it's unlikely that any stocks would really excel at that point (or if they did, they'd be in VT/VTI. ​ My horizon for investing is between 25-30 years (ideally) so if I don't think the market will recover by then, well... I shouldn't be worried about stocks. But like I said, I tend to think pessimistically. ​ If you think that a small cap value tilt is a smart move when markets are good, then it's still good now. Stay the course. If you think it's a bad choice, ask yourself why you thought it was a good choice and re-asses

In the long run, anyone who is mostly in index funds will have a prosperous investment experience. So this is not to say that those overcomplicated portfolios are terrible investments. On the contrary, they may still outperform most investors. That being said, investing is a daunting experience for many individuals, and the sheer complexity of getting started is a barrier. What more, those that do start investing may not understand how to choose proper weights. They might buy a little QQQ here, maybe a mid cap US fund, oh also utility is a good sector for bear markets, etc. Choosing a VTI + VXUS or VOO + VXUS portfolio is an easy way to come up with a default recommender system for new investors. Choosing allocations to ex-US stocks is simple (pick a percentage for VXUS). The weights of different sectors follow market-cap weights. A portfolio with QQQ and VOO require a bit more sophistication in choosing weights. How exposed to tech is an investor with 30% in QQQ and 10% in VOO? If it was just 40% in VTI, then the sector weight is an easy 0.27%, but in the former case, you have to start calculating some weighted averages. So this post was aimed at giving advice to new investors, not fine-tuning a portfolio for those investors with the experience/knowledge for that level of calibration.

This market has been quite a learning experience for me tbh I’m just going to continue DCA into VTI/VXUS and QQQ for the long run. I’ve kinda given up on averaging down on my individual stocks.

Mentions:#VTI#VXUS#QQQ

Yes, 2003 to 2010 investors could have looked back and saw VOO and proclaimed it dead compared to VXUS. That would be a big mistake. We must invest for the future, and global diversification is an empirically tested and safer way to be successful! What if a Japan happens?

VXUS for sure, VXF is up to you. I just do VTI since I don't want the hassle of buying VXF too. BND I personally do not bother with since I am young.

Reposting other comment: It is not wrong but default recommendation systems should prioritize simplicity. The typical investor substantially underperforms indices since they try to tinker with it in suboptimal ways like timing or overweighting in odd ways. I think as a starter, VTI/VXUS is a good place for default recomendations, and the more experienced can go and fine tune to their own heart's content

Its redundant thats all. There is not an issue per se, but i think default recommendations should encourage few broad funds that capture the whole market. How do you pick allocations to QQQ vs VOO? With VTI and VXUS its easy, 80/20. But what is the correct rule for QQQ? A new investor will probably just make something up.

I had a bit of a cash windfall early in the year and have been DCAing since March into VTI, VXUS, and a bit of an energy stock(XOM). I am still about 30% cash. Bought a few more shares today. I’ll drop it all in by the end of the year. I also am always putting more funds in from my paychecks.

So I've already started to invest in VOO. You'd recommend adding VXUS and VXF (my drink)? I guess it wouldn't hurt to add BND too, right? Just want to make sure I'm following.

When people were getting into Arkk, last year I put my money into VTI/VXUS. I'm currently only down 3% on principal which isn't terrible all things considered.

- VEQT and XEQT are basically the Canadian versions of VT, but they have a Canadian home bias which many (including Vanguard and BlackRock) think beneficial. - VUN is a Canadian ETF holding VTI. - VFV is a Canadian ETF holding VOO. - VXUS doesn't make sense for Canadians, but we have VXC and XAW (everything except Canada).

You put fresh money in every so often with that balance he stated (70% VTI, 20% VXUS, 10% BND). As time goes on, they will appreciate in value at different rates. Example - VTI is going up faster than VXUS and is now 78% of your portfolio. You will have to sell some VTI and add it to VXUS or BND to balance your portfolio. I say do it once a year.

Yep! Same for VXUS! But that is not an argument against holding them. You can't predict the future!

Hey dude, I read your post and it was really good. As somebody new to investing (into indexes) this was a great ELI5. Looking to start with VTI and VXUS but am still hesitant whether to start now or... time lol.

They are always a 'obvious buy' right? It's a bit of an awkward time globally with covid and war going on, but I'm planning to start investing shortly, with 15k to start with and continue adding monthly, mostly into things like VTI and VXUS. But am thinking when to start doing it, as everything is still consistently falling down. I know you can't time the market, but... no but?

The beauty of VT is in its simplicity. It spans the whole globe, just like a portfolio split between VTI and VXUS would. VT is a 60/40 split of US/ex-US, so slightly more globally minded than the typical 80% VTI and 20% VXUS commonly recommended. It captures the small and large, value and growth. The only optional addition is a sprinkling of bonds to reflect an investor's risk appetite.

I saw that right after I made my post lol. Thanks! That helps a lot. VXUS is exactly what I’m looking for. Great post!

VTI alone is fine, but please consider adding some international diversification (VXUS). It's a good way to reduce volatility in your portfolio and not risk relying on only one country's success. You can also just pick VT and be done with it. You should *not* buy both VTI and VOO, or VTI and SPY. These are redundant, as my post will show.

Start with I-bonds due to your timeline. Then build up a standard portfolio of globally diversified, low cost index funds (VTI and VXUS, or simply VT). Avoid the ultra-tech concentrated ETFs or individual stock picking as much as you can. 3-5 years is not a long enough time horizon for that money to be safe.

I would invest in index ETFs (VOO, VTI, VXUS) while you learn more about the stock market. Once you learn enough to be comfortable making your own decisions, then invest in individual stocks.

VTI and VXUS are the obvious buys. I've been reading/watching more and more about factor investing and small cap value, so I'm thinking of eventually starting a position in AVUV. It's actually held up decently well through this bear market, showing its utility as a diversifier, and has generally underperformed compared to large cap stocks since the end of the recession. As a result, I think buying now is buying at a discount, and the current bear market is just a bonus. Diversification will be key through this market: bring up that international component, small cap value tilt, and perhaps some blue chip stocks at a discount for the fun of it.

70% VTI. 20% VXUS. 10% BND. Rebalance every 6 months or so. Don’t do anything else until you read some books about investing. Even if you never read anything about investing you will be rich if you just do the above plan.

VT has a high expense ratio compared to VTI/VXUS

Dude, VTI and VXUS is as diversified as you can get, >90% of active fund managers can’t even beat the market, what makes you think you can?

r/Bogleheads always exists. We mostly fight over VT or VTI/VXUS, and international allocation.

You are correct but I was using “growth” to refer to “stock price appreciation” rather than “income investing” aka dividends. Price Appreciation vs Income Investing And Growth vs Value Are two completely different debates on their own however the outcome is actually the same in both cases. Diverse across everything and don’t try to pick winners / losers if you aren’t an trained professional. VTI & VXUS or VT and call it a day.
